The Princess' Castle

Aunt Donna sent Reanna a princess bed tent for her birthday. After a little bit of a struggle, mommy finally got it up.....Now the princess has her castle. She went to bed with no argument. However, I think there was a little bit of play time before she fell asleep. She had her flashlight and books tucked away :-)



Happy Birthday Jesus!

My friend Angie hosted a Birthday Party for Jesus. It was so fun, they had food, games, crafts and a gift exchange. What a way to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas!!



Blow out the candle for Jesus.

Sunday evening, we put jammies on the kids and loaded up to go look at Christmas lights. I enjoyed every moment of being with my family!! I love doing little things like this, it means so much!!



We went by Nana & Papas (aka..the Griswolds)

Next stop....Ice Cream. Why is it ice cream is the best on cold days?? :-)

Preschool Christmas Program

Reanna had her preschool program yesterday afternoon. They did really great!! The link below is the slideshow that was playing at the program. Each of the older classes did a skit of the Nativity Scene and Reanna got to play Mary. She was very excited because she got to hold Baby Jesus!!
Most of you know that I don't like and am not a good cook. BUT....they needed cupcakes for the program, so I decided to cook them all by myself (I didn't even have to have my mom cook them) proud moment huh?? :-) The good part was Reanna helped me sprinkle them!! And they were actually pretty good!


Finished Product...







Peek a Boo....


Dad and Uncle Zo---I just thought this was a good pic of my brother!!
