Christmas pjs from Mammers. Nora is thrilled with hers and thinks she's in a recital costume. :)
Happy boy running Christmas errands with his mommy.
We got out the recorded books from Grands Ellen and Mommy Boo and have enjoyed hearing their voices this Christmas. What treasures they are! Df wants to get a book and record himself. I going that's a great idea since he's just learning to read this year!
Camel ride with Jack on the Fayetteville square. We went to Fayetteville this weekend for Christmas with the Johnsons and had a nice visit. Leslie took the pictures and is emailing them to me so I'll update on that trip later.
We love the Lights of the Ozarks at the Fayetteville square!
Nora opted for a pony ride. His name was peanut.
We went to Painted Pig in Little Rock and the kids made ornaments and a platter with their footprints. I can't wait to get that and use it each year!
Isaac liked getting his foot painted.
But he is still not a fan of Santa. Even When it's Uncle (LB) Santa!
We went to Little Rock and visited the Vaughts. Cousin pic! He's still screaming even on Hallie's lap. Maybe next year he will warm up to Santa.
December blew in big this year! The first week of December and we've had multiple holiday parties and event all week long!
We went to the Country Club after school on Tuesday for some fun gingerbread man decorating with friends.
DF made an elaborate "ninjabread" man!
The Elf on the Shelf (named Ice Cream) also flew back from the North Pole and brought a letter directly from Santa saying they were on the official nice list and left them a list to fill out to mail back to him. This was thrilling for them!
Nora had her first dance performance at the mall. She was very excited...at first.
Then she was very sad/overwhelmed.
She has a sweet big brother who tried to calm her down pre show.
It helped, but she did not participate until the last song. She stood like this for 3 out of 4 songs. She was not in the mood. The first time to do things is always a bit scary for her. She was the cutest one there though!
This boy was happy to see his meme!
We waited in line to see Santa, and mailed their lists to the North Pole.
Both grannies got in the picture with St. Nick, and the photographer had the wrong lense setting and both grannies got cut out- talk about a bummer!
Ice Cream the Elf is extra funny this year and likes to play tricks- he's taking a bath in marshmallows! The kids enjoy him so much they asked for him to have his own stocking!
Other than a dimple or a cute little chin, what's more adorable than a toothless grin?
When he was 3 years old davod Franklin innocently ran into the door frame in our bedroom at our house. We didn't think anything of it but the color started darkening a bit. We got it X-rayed at the dentist and the root was broken. They wanted it to stay in as long as possible and we're hoping for a year... It stayed that way for 3 years! The other day Nora and DF were jumping on the trampoline and her head hit his tooth and made it very loose. After a two weeks of twisting and small tugs, today it was ready and Franklin barely had to pull it out. DF is pumped and said now he "looks like a first grader!" The tooth fairy is coming for a landing tonight!
I am Amanda and I love being a wife and mother. I have the family of my dreams! Motherhood is the most fulfilling, exhausting, rewarding, difficult, fun, and important calling on my life right now. Franklin and I have been married for over 9 years and I am lucky I get to live life with such a great husband and father. We are the proud parents of David Franklin, Nora and Isaac. We have a puppy, Maple, who has added lots of energy to the house! ;) We love to travel, spend lots of time with family and friends and really appreciate all of our blessings in life! This blog is an online journal, scrapbook/ baby book for our growing, busy, wild, little family. If you are looking for grammatically correct, politically correct, stimulating information on current events, I am sorry I can't provide that for you here, but I can tell you what my children are up to and how they are growing on a semi-regular basis. That is in between changing diapers, kissing boo boos, and pouring the chocolate milk!
