Some Quick Christmas Highlights

 Dressed up for church, I think this is the 2nd, maybe the 3rd in these dresses..

The Girls went on a Christmas eve scavenger hunt and part of it was opening gifts from my sister.  The main highlight were these mermaid tales that she made.  The girls love them.

Celia made many hats this year!  Audrey loved hers

Celia's big gift this year was a sewing machine.

Their twinny fox dresses

This is the first year that Audrey sat on his lap without freaking out.
Pete kept trying to get her to smile and I was right next to her hand saying, just take the picture, 
she is just about done!!

It was a pajama Christmas party if you are wondering about the outfits.

By the way this was Audrey last year

And the year before

She is really not sure about him.  She gets a little nervous if there is a discussion of Santa coming.
But that is okay because she has more exposure through school and Sunday school and home (hopefully) about the real reason for Christmas.

Headboard fun

I ordered a headboard around Black Friday/Cyber Monday.  It was a great deal and the first head board that Pete and I have owned on our bed.  I guess it was about time.  To be honest, I was so sick of pillows falling behind the bed and the girls standing behind our mattress on top of the box spring and squishing the pillows even further down.  Anyhow it came in a huge box and Audrey was beside herself with delight.  First she found out that we could keep the itty bitty tools that came with the headboard and then she found the stupid styrofoam stuff inside the big box.  You know the stuff that gets everywhere.  She shredded it and made it into snow, I know, it clings to everything.  But it was too late once I got to her so for quite some time now the playroom is likely going to have styrofoam clinging to every crevice.

Not sure how the kitty hat fits in

Christmas Antics

I get frequent comments about how well behaved my girls are when we are out.
They are angels in school.

I asked them to please sit in front of our tree so I can snap one nice picture….

Not a one.  Our tree looks better in real life.  I guess we need garland or something to fill in the gaps.
