I took this picture the other day of the kids after breakfast. They had all climbed up in the big chair to watch cartoons. This doesn't happen very often because they are normally trying to push each other's buttons. Brotherly and sisterly love!
Tonight me a couple of friends went to one of those paint classes where you try to duplicate a picture they have already done. It was a lot of fun! I was a bit nervous cause I am not at all artistic. Overall it was "pretty" easy. We got to talk and just hang out during it. It was so much fun! I can't wait to do it again!
Sorry these might not be in order. I posted this from my phone.
The boys had their preschool Christmas show last week. Jesse was so excited to sing his Christmas carols. And Jack well he would rather sing "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star." Every time we would start to sing carols in the car he would say "no no, twinkle twinkle, momma." Of course the church was very crowded so I don't have any good pictures of Jack during the program. I don't think he sang but then I couldn't really see him.
Last week all the kids had their Christmas parties. I was excited cause I didn't have to do anything unlike the Halloween parties! Not that I mind but three parties on top of all the other stuff to do during Christmas = stress! Bailey got to wear her pj's cause it was a "Polar Express" party. And I don't have many pictures of the boys parties cause I was running back and forth to between their rooms!
Every year we make gingerbread house. Well one year we had a gingerbread train. And this year we did a village. Since the kids are getting older it is harder to let all three of them "help" without it turning into chaos so thankfully Walmart had a gingerbread Christmas village with 5 houses! I had originally thought that we would each do one but when you are trying to supervise it is hard to do your own especially when one is a two year old, who is trying to eat the candy and the house! So we ended up with three houses plus the one Bailey made at school. The kids loved having their own house. We teased Jesse because his looked like an outhouse. We explained it to him and Bailey but they still didn't fully understand "outhouse" but proudly will tell people that his is an outhouse! It was funny.
