Snow Day Fun!!

Last week when Madison had a snow day, the girls convinced Daddy that they "needed" to go outside and play in the snow. Mommy thought it was too cold, but what do I know! So, Don bundled them up and out they went. I think it took around 20 minutes to get them ready and they were probably outside for about 5-10 minutes max. Don did get some great pictures though, so I had to post them!!

Disney on Ice

The day after Thanksgiving, after getting up at 3:00 am to go shopping and not getting home until 4:00 pm, we loaded Madison, Lily, Don, myself and my mom (a.k.a. Nana) up in the van and headed off to Disney on Ice. The girls had such a great time and loved every minute!! Here they are in their matching Gymboree (of course!!) before the show started, posing in front of the castle on the ice rink.

We had GREAT seats, just a few rows up and right in the center. Plus, as an added bonus, we got to sit right behind the Ross and Myers families too. Here is a picture of Madison, Nana, Lily and me before the show. Taegan stayed home with Papa and Granny. We weren't sure if he would be able to sit through the whole performance. Sitting still isn't one of his specialties.

The girls favorite part was, of course, all the princesses, but they really enjoyed the whole show. When they come back I'm sure we will go again and this time, maybe Taegan can come too!

Santa Picture Time

The day before Thanksgiving we took the kids to Centerpiece Photography for their annual Santa pictures. I knew ahead of time that Taegan probably wouldn't do great, but I was hoping...

As always, the girls were so excited and had already planned out what they were going to ask Santa to bring them. Madison asked Santa for a Barbie laptop. I can't believe how grown up she is looking!

Lily was very excited too. She is looking so big. I can't believe my baby girl is 4!! Lily first asked for a "Santa beard" from Santa, but then changed to "flowers". I'm not sure where either of these ideas came from, so I guess we'll see what Santa does with that!

Taegan... well, Taegan didn't like Santa this year. He loved him last year and seemed excited when he was watching the girls talk to him, but not so much when it was his turn. This is what he looked like...

He did eventually calm down and we got some cute pictures of him with Santa sneaking in from behind. I can't believe he is 18 months old now! What a cutie and I love the blond hair!!!

This was one of the few good pictures we got of all 3 kids and Santa. Again, poor Santa had to be out of Taegan's view point, but at least we got a decent picture. I'm not sure that Taegan ever told Santa what he wanted, so let's just hope Santa remembers him on Christmas!!
