A little this, a little that

The Girls have been so enjoying the holiday season. It has been so much fun experiencing it with them. They LOVE all shows that are Christmas themed. And I know they are paying attention. The other day they found a Santa toy, where Santa is stuck in the chimney. River was so distraught over this & kept saying the Reindeer in my room could pull him out & help him. Sure enough, there was a Reindeer ornament in my room. She was a bit disappointed when her theory didn't work, but was confident that "Daddy fix it! Daddy will help!" (yeah, I rank real high around here). They have also LOVED having the Christmas tree up. But for now, here is alittle of the day to day around here.
This picture should explain why some emails may never be answered or received. DO YOU SEE ALL OF THE FINGERS???? This is also why there are so many video montages. The girls LOVE to watch & dance to them.

JuJu seeing how much toilet paper can fit in the toilet.

Yep, the whole role!
Good thing Mommy knows alittle bit about plumbing & has a plunger near by. Only an inch or so of water on the ground... No worries. A few towels, and a good mop. All is new.

The girls are still missing Halloween & decided to carve an apple after lining up the left over jack-o-lanter stickers. The butter-knife didn't give the look they were in search of & quickly abandoned that project.

Here is an attepmt of getting a picture of the girls together.

This is the best I could get with all 4 looking.

Aren't these expressions a priceless?

Here are the girls a year ago in the same sweaters. Actually, I just bought the same set of sweaters in a size up.

I know this pictue is alittle late, but it is our Thanksgiving Turkeys Hand prints.
Thanks Ms. Lisa for doing this project with us. I will treasure it always.

Christmas Cards

I'm so excited to share our Christmas card with ya'll! I'm picking them up tomorrow and will hopefully have them out by this weekend. We had the very talented Betsy of Betsy Marie Photography take the pictures this year. It was such a pleasant experience and the pictures came out wonderfully! I still have to pick out the pictures & order them. It sooo hard to choose!

You can see two of the "dancing" pics above. Those pics are some of my favorite. You truly can see each of their personalities captured perfectly. And they look so grown up! sniff, sniff.

Snow DAY!!!!

We got a early treat this year when it snowed on Wednesday ( I'm alittle behind as usual). The girls LOVED IT! Though we are still mourning the loss of the snowman. Even the snowman cookies, marshmellow snowmans, snowman movie, ect., have not completely dulled the pain for all over his loss ( he melted by the end of the day ). It is a bit sad at times when they go to the back window looking for "NOOO-MAAANN!!!!!!!!" .
(it is a very fun & easy activity.... pretzel sticks, marshmellows & whatever fun candies to make a "snowman". we even put them on a plate & sprinkled powdered-sugar for a full "snow" effect) I make a snowman like Mommy showed us, or do I just eat it the goodies????

However, I'm very grateful that some of our neighbors now have their Christmas Decorations & lights out and one of them has a huge Snowman which the girls LOVE to go visit & tell hello too. We had started walking with the girls everynight and with all the lights now, it has gotten to be alot of fun & very entertaining for them. I will just say you don't want to know what it takes to get out the door with all them especially with it really cold right now...sheesh!
