Christmas Eve Fun

Before the Christmas Eve festivities began, we thought it would be fun to let the girls make their own Christmas Trees out of frosting, candy and ice cream cones.  It was a big hit, with a lot of snacking along the way!

Seeing the Tree for the First Time

We decorated the tree one night after the girls went to bed.  We figured it would be easier to assemble without four little extra hands "helping".  Seeing their face the next morning when they first set eyes on the tree was priceless!

WOAH!  Would you look at that!

Oh Christmas Tree!

Pull up a chair and enjoy the view!

Pinatas and Bonfires

No Thanksgiving is complete without dessert, bonfires, pinatas and of course some nighttime swinging on the swing set.

A perk of having 20!

One of the perks of having 20 people is doing the wave around the Thanksgiving table!


Keep it going Grammy!

That was AWESOME!

For Thanksgiving, we were lucky to by joined by 20 awesome family members.  The girls were so happy to visit with all of their friends.  

Silly Uncle Joe!

Pretty Placemats

The girls made everyone pretty placemats for Thanksgiving dinner.  They loved making them with their paint dobbers, and they looked so nice on the table!

Emma hard at work!

Which color to choose?!

Such craft ladies!

Welcome to Moe's!

The Disney Channel had been advertising "Sophia the First" for several weeks, and we thought it would be fun to let the girls watch it.  It is a children's movie about a little girl who becomes a princess. We thought we would make it a special night for the girls, so we ordered them Moe's (cheese quesadillas), set up tv trays, and watched it together. Such a fun night!

Elf on the Shelf

It's that time of year again...for our Elf on the Shelf, who we've named Chilly, to make his appearance.  This year, the girls have taken an interest in him.  They don't fully understand why he is there, but they love to wave to him, blow him kisses and show off for him.  And let's face it, Mom and Dad have fun thinking of new places to put him.  Tonight, we have him parasailing on the living room ceiling fan.

A Week in the Life of Two Little Ladies: Day 4

We've gotten really good at trying all sorts of new foods.  Which are even more tastier when you are wearing no shirt and your best winter hat!

A Week in the Life of Two Little Ladies: Day 3

We love to craft, and color.  For Halloween, UJ got us these awesome markers, which we love to play with.  And even better that they are washable, so its no big deal if we get them on the table...or our clothes....or our face!  As you can tell, coloring is serious business.

A Week in the Life of Two Little Ladies: Day 2

And we like to read stories and watch videos with our momma, or Ma, as we like to call her lately.

A Week in the Life of Two Little Ladies: Day 1

We are gearing up for Thanksgiving, which is going to be at our house, so things are going to be a little chaotic this week as we help Momma and Auntie with all of the preparations.  So while we are off being busy, we'd thought we'd give you a little glimpse of what a typical week looks like for us lately.

We like to:
Practice drinking out of cups like big kids.  This usually ends up with a mop coming out...but at least we are doing our part to keep the floor clean.

Auntie Becky invited us to come and visit her horse Dan.  We got to pet him, kiss him and ride him!

Check me out guys!

I'm kind of a big deal right now

Dan the Man

Thank you Auntie Becky

Birthday Balloons!

For AK's birthday, we blew up some balloons as a surprise.  While we waited for her to wake up, we had a little fun with them ourselves.
