Baby It's Cold Outside

Well, it actually snowed here on December 4th. Unfortunately, we all had to go to work and school so we didn't get to play in it until late in the afternoon. It was seriously snowing around 2ish...SO COOL!

Of course Katie didn't care that it wasn't snowing big time when we got home. She had waited all day to play in it and that is what we did when we got home!

We even built a snowman with what snow was left....check out that big old snowman!

Here is what was left when we got home. Not too much, but it did get us feeling Christmasy...and it was still cold so the fireplace was burning!

Katie's Final Product

Here is what the tree looked like when Katie was done. Only a few bare spots. And, she FORCED me to take down the angel that ALWAYS adorns the top of the tree and put this star up there. I knew I should have gotten rid of that star...oh well...he loves it and knows that she had a big part in it. And, there are now candy canes hanging on the tree. All on the bottom and on like 4 branches...but they look very cute!

Tree Trimming

Katie helped me decorate the tree this year...she was such a big help! I only had to move a few after she went to bed...I mean 4 ornaments on one limb is a little much...but she did a great job!

She even got dressed up for the decorating....

Yep, let's put another one right there...great job!

Here she is trying out a new spot...what a big helper...

Proof that I did leave it her way for a while...not too long...but long enough to snap a couple of pics. Sorry...I am just to controlling to leave more than one ornament per cute!

Little Turkeys

We had a great Thanksgiving celebrating at Diva and Gringo's house. We then headed to the beach to hang out with Big and Tiny. No pics of the beach visit...Mommy was at the beginning of a bad cold and the camera never made it out of the bag...bum!

Here's Katie posing with her Ariel Barbie. It never left her side!

Daddy and our Little Turkey!

The girls in their matching shirts and bows...yes, I have become that Mom!

I had to make Katie's shirt. Mimi bought the cute turkey shirt for Brooklyn, so I got in touch with my creative side and made a matching shirt for Katie. Thank goodness for scrap material...each piece was a different type of material.

Our Cool Chicks!

Brooklyn is just chillin' in Katie's shades...she's so cool!

Cheese grin!

Brooklyn LOVES her Exercauser (or whatever)...she loves to dance to the music. She sways back and forth so forcefully that the thing tries to tip over...CRAZY GIRL!

A Trip to Dallas

Way back in November we headed to Dallas to celebrate Uncle Ric's 50th Birthday, Surprise Party style! It was very fun and we had a great time visiting with familiy.

Here's the happy birthday boy, Uncle Ric...who knew he had such musical talent!

Brittany and Dee kept little B company...

While Daddy and Gringo kept Katie all smiles...

Mommy often didn't know where her children were...but they were safe and sound with our awesome family...

Here's the little bed bugs hanging out in the hotel...Dallas was fun!

By the way, Katie thinks that all airplanes live in Dallas...not sure what that's all about!
