School Holiday Song Fest

Probably video overload, but hey, I'm a proud Mommy.  And, this was over-the-top cute!

Anxiously Awaiting Christmas & Upcoming Holiday Vacation

The girls tear off a piece of their construction paper chain every morning and count down the days to Christmas.  Along the way, the chains are marked with fun things, like holiday party playdates, songfest at school, arrival of Grammommy, Gramps and Grandpa.  They are so excited.  And, Mommy and Daddy are excited to be off work December 21st - January 2nd.  We will have lots of adult parties and fun with the kids!  Here's what we have going on the next few weeks.  So excited for Christmas!!!  Will resume blogging in the new year!

Growing Up

Annual trip to the airport around Christmas with their friends Charlotte, Mackenzie and Avery  (they are sisters).  Look how much they have grown.  The silver wall is a true indicator of how much taller they are.  Super duper cute.  And, check out how long my girls' hair is.
