Christmas 2010

Of course we had a great Christmas. While we don't have family up here in Maine, we do have good friends who we invited for Christmas eve. Santa brought the girls really great presents. We are so blessed to have so much! We got a Wii this year with a few games. Playing super mario bros makes me feel like I'm 10 again! The girls have loved playing it and it's pretty entertaining to watch them play. Here are just a few moments of Christmas morning.

Halle is into everything especially the m&m's the girls dropped on the floor from their stockings. This totally made my day!

Halle just learned to crawl. She was more interested in crawling around than opening a present, no surprise!

the girls have been asking for a pillow pet for months. YAY!

The girls in their cute new jammies on Christmas Eve. (thanks mom)

two baby girls

Both my sister and my sister-in-law had baby girls in the past couple weeks. I'm so excited about having two new sweet little nieces and Halle will have two cousins around her age to play with when we visit the fam. So I wanted to make something for Briley and Maelyn. I don't consider myself to be extremely crafty or creative, but the little shoes I made for them turned out really cute. I got the pattern online for free so if you're interested in the pattern, let me know and I'll send you the link. The first pair took me a couple hours to do but after I did it once I was able to do three more pair really fast. The little flower embelshiments aren't too difficult either.

Thanksgiving Program

Mckenna had a little Thanksgiving performance and I really meant to post this sooner but just forgot. I found the pictures tonight and decided that late is better than never. Her class sang some songs and then had a little feast. Each kid got to say what they were thankful for. Mckenna said she was thankful for her family. She's such a good girl. I went to her parent teacher conference and her teacher told me she's just the sweetest, that she is always making sure everyone is included and that no one feels left out or sad in the class. That made me so proud because every morning we say a prayer before the girls leave and I usually mention something about being a good example and being a friend to everyone. She always says, "I KNOW, Mom!" in a rather annoyed tone, but obviously she is listening. Glad there is some evidence that I'm a good mom!

snow girl

We took some time to play in the snow again. Thought this was cute of kayla.

Baby Gifts

I really really really want to post what I've been working on, but they are gifts so I have to wait until they have been given. I made some cute stuff for my sister who is having her first little girl (3rd baby), and my other sister (in-law) is having her first little girl too! They are both due this month! YAY for girls!

I started my last semester of school which means I will be student teaching starting in January. I'm a little nervous about that, not the teaching part, but the leaving my kids to go teach all day part. But that's for another post!
