Another One Has Come and Gone

We had our 3rd Christmas celebration today, and, with that, another Christmas has come and gone.







Santa was oh so very good to these two kiddos!








Since it rained Christmas day, Olivia rode her bike through the house ALL day.
 

Nana and Papa came for brunch, and we had Christmas with them!
 



Olivia loves, loves, LOVES her playground!
 


And, finally today, we celebrated with Sarah and Bradley.
 
It's been a whirlwind!

Hope everyone has a wonderful New Year!

Sincerely,

Leigh

Just Hanging Out

It's such a gray day today.  Cold.  Rainy.  Blah.

So Sista O, Brotha D and I have just been hanging out today.  Playing.

This Is How We Do It

Who cares if there's no snow.


It doesn't stop us from playing with our sled.  But instead of sledding down white, glistening snow, Olivia glided down the front yard on leaves and acorns!
 

Oh, Santa, please bring Olivia snow this Christmas!

 





Sincerely,

Christmas Season 2012

We're in full-blown Christmas season around here!  

We went to The Merry Christmas Tree Farm on Saturday to get our Christmas tree.  If my math is right, this makes the 10th year Kevin and I have chopped down our tree at this farm.  It's become a tradition for us, and we wouldn't get our tree from anywhere else.




This is Olivia's 4th trip to the Christmas tree farm, so she's a pro at spotting the perfect tree!
 
This giant leyland  cypress was her top pick!



 And on Sunday, Olivia was a mouse in the Christmas parade with the rest of her dance class.


It's Christmas time, ya'll!  Fa la la la la.....
 

Sincerely,

Leigh

Happy Halloween

We've been celebrating Halloween for days now.

Saturday night we took the kiddos to a Boo-in-the-Park at a local park.  Olivia dressed as guess who???





This might help...


Yeah, Olivia's costume of choice this year was to be Daphne from Scooby Doo!

Sunday we went to Nana and Papa's and had a hay ride!





And tonight it's all about trick-or-treating!  




These two are ready!

Sincerely,

Leigh

Welcome "Little D"

Spare time is pretty minimal right now, but I did want to share some photos of Olivia and Davis from the last few weeks.

Olivia's First Dance Class


Olivia started ballet class today!


 She's been over-the-moon excited about it for weeks now.




She went out to the car, got in her carseat and buckled herself in well before it was time to leave.  She just couldn't contain her excitement!

But before we left, she did a little warming up in the driveway!



 
Today's class was mostly a get-to-know-you type day.  All the girls had to stand up and do a ballet twirl and tell the class their favorite color when their name was called.  Olivia said her favorite color was pink.  They went over some class rules like never go out the door without your grown-up and don't run on the special black dance floor.  They did some princess stretching and practiced following the teacher's directions.  Olivia obviously thought it was pertinent for the class to know that she got new makeup, and she also randomly told everyone that she was going to have a baby soon!  Oh the mind of a three year old!

It was a fun class!  Olivia really seems like she's going to enjoy it!  She was the star of the show (if you ask me!)  She already wants me to wash her leotard and tights in preparation for next weeks class!

Sincerely,
 
Leigh
