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!
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!
