I took this picture on Dec. 14th. This was such a solemn and gloomy day with the Connecticut school mass shooting. As I watched my little children so innocently enjoy popping popcorn I couldn't help but not be grateful for these little ones. They are my life and I can't even begin to imagine what those parents, grandparents, and siblings are feeling over their loss. I really held them tight that day!
Carter and Bess started out the Christmas spirit with a bang at their piano recital. They again did awesome and had a fun time memorizing their songs. Aren't they just so cute?!
This little fart found a present EARLY! Crazy thing is she knew just which one was hers all wrapped up under the tree. I heard her wake up but gave her a few minutes to come find me, it took her longer then normal so I went to go find her. We met at the top of the stairs and she was so pleased with herself!
I guess she picked a good one because she hasn't taken this off since. Thanks Papa and Nana Sue!
These next pictures are awful but I had to document us doing our tradition of Grand America Scavenger Hunt. We always do dinner before at the Little America Cafe and then cross the street over to The Grand America Hotel.
I can dare to say that the kids were very thrilled that there was just enough flags for them all to have one to cross the street. May have been Maggie's whole highlight of the night!
The kids had a little program at the school to bring in the holiday cheer. They each sang 2 very fun songs. They were very prepared for this day! I think I could have got right up there and sang along with them with all the times they practiced at home.
We love watching Bess dance! & she loves performing! She now does Jazz and Ballet so we got to watch her dance to a couple different Christmasy songs. (she prefers Jazz)
Oh these girls! How could you not love them? They are so funny and the conversations I get to eavesdrop on on the way to lessons is just priceless. BF's FOREVER!
