Christmas Cuddles!!!

Here is another post of my kids in holiday jammies... I don't really know why I feel the need to buy them jammies every holiday, but I think it may have something to do with the fact that they only get new jammies around the holidays? Tonight Dorothy was "helping" me put Preston down for bed, and I snapped a few shots of her "calming him down" and getting him ready to go to sleep!

Giving loves goodnight!

Two little Christmas bums!

Loves again!

Dorothy thought a slumber party might be a good idea...

Darling Dancer!!

Dorothy had her winter dance recital! She is becoming quite a little dancer; she was so into the dance she would run right into the other dancers if they were not moving! James and I proudly watched her and AMAZINGLY Preston also watched the recital. Now if we can just get him to sit thought church. We had a small dramatic episode after the recital when the trophy we ordered for her was not in yet. As you can see in the pictures with us she is not too happy!! We gave her a wand and ballet ornament to compensate until the trophy arrives, but there were still tears and a small yelling session compliments of me, her Mom.

Trying to smile!

After WWIII we are both trying to smile!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

We enjoyed Thanksgiving at Allison and Jon's house this year! We drove up a little early and let the kids have some 'cousin time!' Allison, Kelly and I all made the meal including the sauerkraut!!! We enjoyed time as a family especially entertainment hour by Conrad! After dinner we played rock band and mapped out our black friday shopping spree!!! It was a wonderful day to think about all of our blessings!! We missed you Mom, Dad, Dickens and Adam!

Finally I am not at the 'kids' table this year!!!

Dinner... enjoy!

The hands that prepared it!!!

The 'dancers' during rock band!!

Thanksgiving turkeys!

Every year I make these turkey's for thanksgiving. This year since we were at Allison's house we decided to do it with cousins!!!

Twilight at midnight!

So about two weeks ago... yeah, I am pretty behind on blogging! I went to Twilight at midnight. A few girls from my ward all went to dinner and then to the movie I only took a picture from dinner because I was so excited about the movie I forgot to take anymore! I loved the movie and can't wait to see it again!
