Christmas cuties

Kelly went to pick up Hailey from preschool the other day, and to my surprise brought home Rudolph the red nosed reindeer instead! How cute is that, I love preschool crafts!

I had to throw this in because we died laughing when we found her like this. Hailey threw an absolute fit at bedtime that night, so we just let her scream and cry until she wore herself out...and boy did it work. We went to check on her once it was quiet, and to our surprise we hit her with the door as it opened. How does one fall asleep sitting up? She was sound asleep sitting right next to the door, it was hilarious.

Here are the kids matching Christmas Jammie's (I decided I couldn't wait until Christmas eve, so I will just take them back and wrap them, and the kids will never know the difference right). They were so excited about them, and were dancing and putting on a show for us.

You can see their individual stages, they will stand and dance on whatever they can find...unfortunately. I sure enjoy those two cuties though, and they make the holidays worthwhile.

Holiday Happenings

Remember last memorial weekend when this happened?...
We lost our air bag due to Kelly being slightly careless.

Well, now Kelly decided to rear end another student on his way to school, ironically right after he had just taken it in and had some work done. I think he has however make some real improvements in it's looks, ha ha. Look at that classy light he bolted to the bumper. People keep saying that all we need is duct tape to make the look complete. I am so embarrassed :)

Well I jumped the gun in the order of these pictures, but when we got our Christmas tree home, Hailey and Daddy put the star on the tree first, as is tradition.

My cuties in front of the decorated tree. They were good helpers, or at least they thought they were.

This was our adventure in searching for the perfect tree. I am so particular when it comes to finding the perfect tree, but after about an hour of searching, there it was in all it's glory. It was so cold, but the kids still had a blast.

Travis loved playing on this muddy make shift bridge, and fell off many times into the slippery mud below.

Hailey was at preschool while we searched for the tree, but we picked her up and brought her to the tree lot to approve my choice. She was so excited, and couldn't wait to get it home... and get out of the cold

On Saturday we went to the annual creche exhibit, and had our pictures taken as the nativity. Hailey was Mary...

Travis was her Joseph, and Kelly and I were shepherds.

They are so cute! Hailey was OK with Travis being Joseph, but requested that cousin Ben be her Joseph instead. He also pouted about the matter, so we had to let them be Mary and Joseph together to make them happy.

They too were adorable, and were beaming for the camera.

This picture says it all, Mary loves her Joseph, while he admires the baby Jesus. I love it!
