Sydne's Pre-K turkey day


video

Sydne's Pre-K class did a little skit their last day of school before thanksgiving break and it was so cute. My hubby got a little crazy with the video taking I think he took 6 or something what can I say he is a proud daddy, but I thought this was a cute one. They are saying there poems they learned. Syd is the youngest and the littlest one in the class I think and she does so good we are very proud of her! Here are a few shots of her in her Indian outfit they made in class as well.
I am actually glad he took a lot of video because Mia was less then thrilled about having to sit on my lap in a crowded hot classroom for 30 min. and be quiet. Lets just say I feed her those package of goldfish just as fast as I could!

Thanksgiving Recap

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving, I know we did. We had A LOT of people over but I thought it went really great. The food was wonderful, and we played games which is always fun, I ate way to much though!!! All in all very successful 2nd year at our house. I love having it at the house, it is one of the only holidays where we don't have to split it and drag the kids to both sides of the family's houses not that I don't like going over there it is just MUCH easier on me to say the least.
Well have a great day, posts and videos of Syd's turkey day program at school there is something just to cute about little 3 and 4 year old's in feather headbands!!
This is my mom's candle holder and I just love it so it
went right in the middle!

My table it turned out very pretty it was hard to get a good pic with
the window light

My hubby carving his second turkey of the day
he was so proud!!

Thanksgiving at the house and the Wicked witch of the West

So we are carrying on the tradition and having thanksgiving at our house this year! I think this year we are going to have 15 over. I love having everyone over and am very excited. It is actually pretty low stress everyone brings a dish or two I make the pies, cranberry sauce and rolls (and drinks) and my hubby fries up the most delicious turkey. Not much involved really, I always like to go all out and decorate the table all pretty. I just love this time of year!! I have so much to be thankful for: first and foremost my children they are healthy, happy, and beautiful what more can you ask for! I am also thankful for my wonderful husband who puts up with a lot, I will have to say I am not the easiest to live with, I am thankful for my job, my house, my family, my friends, and most of all my God. You are so good and I am blessed beyond measure!!! Hope eveyone has a happy and blessed thanksgiving!!
On a side note we have a Wizard of Oz party coming up and syd wants to be the wicked witch of the west so I will be at the sewing table between festivities this week, also I would love for Mia to be a Munchkin but we will see, I might be aiming a little high getting two costumes made this week!
pics to come!!!!!!!!

Simple moments


Well today was a pretty yucky day outside it rained and was cold for most of the day, so the girls and I stayed in and played! While Sydne was at pre-k Mia and I just had a good ole time playing dress up in some of her new hats and playing on her Elmo chair! Hope everyone had a good day I know I did. I love the simple moments in life where you look at your children and what God has given you and just are overcome with thankfulness.

Pumpkin Patch and New Fall Outfits!

So I just finished the girls fall/thanksgiving outfits today, and I couldn't be happier on how they turned out! We are going to go out to the park and have pictures taken with all the pretty fall leaves by my good friend Jamie, she is very talented behind the camera so I am super excited, and I can't wait to see the girls in there outfits.

Sydne's Outfit ( I am going to put a long sleeve orange shirt under it)



In other news we made it to the pumpkin patch about 2 1/2 weeks ago and the girls had a blast. We played in the corn, went down the big slide, and went on a hayride. We even took Gammy and Daddy along for all the fun. We picked out our pumpkins and then daddy helped carve them. The picture in my header was the one family photo we snapped that day but here are a few of the girls!
I just love this one they were worn out after a long afternoon!

Snow White and Dopey!

We had a good but busy Halloween Weekend. Friday we had a MOMS party for the little ones (which I got no pictures of) I know I feel terrible and then that afternoon I was a helper at Syd's pre-k class party. It was fun the kids were all so cute, Syd wore her spider dress and I spray painted one of her dress up crowns black and hot glued a little black spider on the front and she was a spider princess. I didn't want her to wear her actual costume in fear of her tearing it up.
Syd and Mommy at her Party!

Then friday night we went to the high school to trick or treat since it was raining and they couldn't have it downtown like usual, it was so crowded so we didn't stay very long, just long enough for the girls to get a sugar high and then back home we went.
Snow white and Dopey Dwarf!

Saturday we went to the Marion mall to Boo Bash and it was a good time and the girls got enough candy to last the whole year. We had a good weekend hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween!!
