only 10 more days...

Santa's coming! Santa's coming!
I just started thinking about the lil faces of my children on Christmas morning and got the chills. I wanted to share with you the excitment of the Christmas Spirit from our house! I hope that you all have the itch in your belly and the twinkle in your's just around the corner now! :)
Merry Christmas!

The Diary of a Wimpy Kid

Joshua LOVES reading to Jenna. Jenna LOVES tormenting Joshua while he reads. It always starts out sweet and innocent, as you can see…then it turns into all out WAR! :) Luckily this one ended with a KISS!! :)

11 November 2009

I give it a couple years before she is fully able to wear him out :) Until then…It’s all in fun.

After their “make-up kisses”, they played little people house together. So cute!

Tastefully Simple

Mom and I had a Tastefully Simple Party on Saturday. It was nice having some friends over for us and the kids. Jenna became FAST friends with Melissa’s daughter Megan and Joshua rekindled his friendship with Cheryl’s daughter Cassie. The food was GREAT and the friendship was AWESOME!!!

Cassie stayed over to play for awhile until the movie started. Mom went with Cheryl, Paula, Cassie and Joshua to see the “Christmas Carol”. Mommy wanted to go…but Jenna isn’t old enough for a movie. Maybe next year! They had a lot of fun playing Air Hockey while they were still at the house….

Born to be WILD!

I brought the kids all a little something from Snowshoe. Mom got Moose socks, Joshua got a wooden compass with Snowshoe Mountain carved on the back and some candies, and Jenna got PJ’s! They’re soo cute, I couldn’t help but to take some pictures of her in them!

Jenna loves her blankie(s)!! She usually has 2 blankies, her “bankie” (which is a tiny blanket with silk, velvet, and bubbly fabric on it) and her baby. She’s cute…her blanket is always draped around her shoulders.

Joshua, Nana & I carved our pumpkins yesterday. We carved three pumpkins. Jenna and Nana did a regular Jack-O-Lantern, I made Jenna a cat pumpkin and Joshua made a really cool spider. We all had fun and nobody got too badly hurt. (I cut my finger a lil, but I survived.)

tippytoes & chopper

The kids had a great time Trick-or-Treating with Joshua’s friend Tanner & his family. We went in Fort Hill on Windham & Weberwood Road.

Jenna was Joshua’s lil tag a long this year, until she finally started to get the concept and wanted to “trick-or-treat” with her Bubby. She figured out that those nice lil people would give her candy if she simply walked up to them and stuck out her little hand. Although, I never could get her to say “trick-or-treat”. She was the cutest clown on the block for sure! As for Joshua, he was the cutest “dead, skeleton biker” on the street also!! hehe

Jenna’s first Halloween Party at school was this Tuesday.

She was so cute dressed up with her friends!

Jenna LOVED Playing with her new Play-doh!

She actually got really mad when it was time to clean up (when she started eating it). I think Joshua forgot how much he loves Play-doh too. They both had a lot of fun!
