It's official

Wednesday, December 29, 2010
Jason and I are the best parents ever, and I have proof!  Sydney was upstairs working on something, she told us to stay down here.  Then, once she was ready, she instructed us to come upstairs together.

We were greeted at the top of the stairs by the Zhu Zhu pets, set out in a nice display...

The note states that we are the best parents, we knew that, but it's nice to make it official...

And then, as we came around the corner, we were greeted with two cuties!

The girls' notes to Santa

(Brooke spent quite a bit of time on that scribble masterpiece)

They were supposed to be Christmas Trees

Sunday, December 26, 2010
Khalil is in town for the holiday break, so my sister and I wanted to do something fun with all 4 kiddos.  We went for a fun game of bowling, and then back to our house to make cupcakes.  I got these cute little Christmas tree molds at Target, and we were all so excited.  Things never turn out how they are supposed to though, they started to break & crumble as we took them out of the molds :(.  Thankfully, the kids didn't care...plenty of frosting and lots of colorful decorations were all they needed. 

I told them they could eat one of the cupcakes...but FIRST, they need to go outside, too messy to eat indoors.  And, SECOND, they must all sit and smile until I get a good picture, THEN they were allowed to eat the messy cupcakes :)

Are they cute, or what? 

More rainy day fun

Tuesday, December 21, 2010
It has been raining, and raining, and raining...and we have been in the house for DAYS.  Long days.  So, yesterday we decided to forget the rain and head out to play anyway.  The girls loved it. 

It's wet!

The Christmas lights are starting to sag :(

More from jammie day

Sunday, December 19, 2010
Brooke and I walked into class with Sydney to get ready for the class party, it was quite chaotic with wound up children who were ready to party. All of a sudden I hear the teacher announce how she likes that one of her students was following directions and knew what she was supposed to do on a Friday morning. I look over, and there is my sweet Sydney focused on her math book (the ONLY kid doing math). Up on the board it said to open their math books and do page 8...and that she did :)

After a nice big breakfast feast and a fun craft, it was time for the book exchange. Of course, Sydney had to have her best buddy right in her lap...

And she helped her do all the is so sweet how much she loves her sister...

As brooke and I walked out we went through this giant leaf looked so cool, so we (ok, I) decided to stop and get a picture of Brooke in the middle of all those flying leaves. Those leaves you see on the ground were all in the sky just moments before this shot, but as we waited & waited, nothing happened. Brooke got tired of waiting, she picked up some leaves and threw them for me. Good enough!

Cutest Jammie Girls Ever

Saturday, December 18, 2010
Yesterday was pajama day at Sydney's school. She wanted to wear her "candy cane" jammies. And, of course, so did little sis. I thought they were pretty darn cute, and then my thoughts were confirmed as nearly every person commented on how cute they were :).

She's not giving up on the puppy!

Tuesday, December 14, 2010
Sydney wrote this note to Santa in class the other day, addressed envelope even.  I guess we'll send it, but I warned puppies.  NO PUPPIES!

We made it to Santa's house tonight!  Everyone had a blast.  We were at the mall this morning and Brooke wanted nothing to do with Santa, so this took some prep work.  We strategically told her she could sit on the opposite side of the sleigh, with Sydney by her side, and she did great!

Brooke told Santa she wants a bed for her babies.  Sydney wants either a Barbie Jet, another elf, or a puppy.  I had a serious talk with Santa about ignoring the puppy request!!!  Colton just wants legos.

Here are the 3 cuties and Santa!  Just 12 days until he visits us!

There is so much that I love about this...

I love that she insisted on wearing this tutu all day, even when dance was over.

I love that we came outside to play and wait for Sydney, but all she wanted to do was hit the music button on her play car over & over & over so that she could dance.

I love that while she's dancing she's still holding the oatmeal cookie that the neighbor gave her.

I love her sense of rhythm, and how darn cute she is!

I had 10 more images in this sequence, but the free animated gif maker would only allow 10.  It would have been SO cute with all of them!  Oh well, still love it...

Note: if it's not animated, you may have to click to see her shake her booty!

Don't mind me...

I'm just hangin' out in a tiny stroller that's intended for little baby dolls...I don't see any problem with this.  My legs are tired.

Bunny love

Wednesday, December 1, 2010
Brooke LOVES animals!  And, at the RB Inn for Thanksgiving they had pony rides & a petting zoo.  Brooke was thrilled to hold the bunny.  Pony ride pictures to come, if I can get through my giant picture to-do list.
