Oh, What FUN!!

The girls have made a gingerbread house and train and they've both turned out so cute!  I don't think it's possible for those to turn out badly when children have put their heart and soul into it. 
My favorite thing about these first pictures is the fact that every time I took a picture, Charlee was READY....little poser!  I don't know where she gets this!??!  :) 

 Now, our girls are VERY musical!  They LOVE to sing and dance and they learn the words to songs like you wouldn't believe 3 years old could.  Their new favorite is Oh, Holy Night.  It's PRECIOUS to hear them sing it and to watch them sing it with feeling!  BUT, another of their favorites is "You and I" by Lady Gaga.  I know, I know, it's not very appropriate for little ones, but you should see them get into singing this one!    Whenever they're singing for show, they get their vacuum cleaners to use as their microphones.  In this song, Lady Gaga says "get your drinks up". Well, they do!  AND then Saylor pretends to take a drink.  This is priceless!

We STILL don't like Santa Claus!!!!

We had Christmas with the Green's a couple weeks ago and Santa and Mrs. Claus showed up.  We had some VERY unhappy, terrified little girls!  To say the least.  I'm not sure why they're still so scared of Santa, but they certainly are.  Any time we mention Santa coming to see the girls on Christmas Eve night, Charlee always says that she just wants to be in the bed when he comes.  Most recently, they've told us to add in our letter that night they want Santa to just leave their presents under the tree and to NOT come to their bedrooms to see them.    They're a mess!  It's pretty cute.  Maybe next year.   ??

Our 2012 Christmas Card Photo Shoot :)

I decided to start early and try to get our pictures for our Christmas card.  I did these a couple months ago and I didn't think I got any good ones.  240 + pictures.  BUT, the more I looked at them, I knew the perfect ones to use.  Here are some of the most fun ones...

The finished product!!!

Catching Up...

We've had lots of excitement since my last post.  Poor Saylor got 4 stitches in her chin.  She was supposed to be putting her hair brush back in the drawer and was taking longer than she needed to.  Meanwhile, Diego was on and Charlee and I noticed that he didn't have a shirt on....SO, Charlee yells to Saylor to hurry up and come look because Diego didn't have on a shirt.  I see Saylor come out of the bathroom and go air born and land right on her chin.  It was awful!!  I found out that she was taking so long putting her brush up because she had gotten out the water bottle that I use to wet their hair sometimes.  She had been spraying it into the air and of course it was all in the floor.  She was traumatized getting the stitches in.  But, it was pretty bad.  She looks great now.  Hopefully, her scar won't be too bad and it's in a place that's really hard to see.

This is how the girls watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.  Wearing their little hats.

 Helping with the Christmas tree.  It's going to be a fun Christmas!!

Decorating Daddy's birthday cake!!  This was the MOST fun!! 

 Brent helped Saylor out with the polka dots.  :)

So, Sister, whatcha think??

Brent got my crowns down from the attic this past weekend.  They're from being Homecoming Queen and Miss LHS.  Seeing my sweet girls wear my crowns was a pretty proud moment for me!!  :) 

 The girls made dinner for us last weekend.  Homemade pizzas.  YUM!!
