Christmas Festivities

 We tried to do a lot of Christmas-y activities during December.
Here are some little craft kits I bought thinking they would be easier than actual gingerbread house kits.
Yeah, right.  Nothing fit together and I had to find myself some serious glue to make anything stick.
But the kids sure had a blast!

I apparently got the worst seat to take pictures of Lo in her very first dance concert.  She's in the far right of the picture.  Next time I will be asking her teacher where she's at before I run down to take pictures.
Her class was #16 to perform, and she just kept asking if it was her turn.  She wasn't even nervous, just super excited.  I think I was more nervous than she was - she was just excited to wear makeup :)
She did great - didn't miss a step {though she was looking around more than straight ahead, as seen below} and loved every minute of performing.

And on to Christmas morning.
Since we had 2 trees this year, Santa put all of his presents to the girls under their tree.

Lauren's favorite present from Santa was her Lalaloopsy doll.  She must've been a very good girl.  It was all she asked for this year.

Bryan has decided to let the girls get me what they really want to get me.
This year it was a dolphin pillow pet.  It is my most treasured gift this year.
Lauren told Bryan it was because she wanted me to be able to hang out in "the big TV room" with her & Mya and their pillow pets.
Is that the sweetest thing, or what?
So now I have a pillow pet of my very own.  And I am not allowed to go anywhere in the house without it.
It is now hidden from plain sight for that reason.....it was kind of getting ridiculous.
But I love it, and I love why it was given to me.

I can't believe how long Lo's hair is in that dance recital picture! She's growing up so fast! I love the pillow pet too, I think it's great that they wanted to get you something that they have and love so so much and it's awesome that they want to spend time watching TV while you all hang with your pillow pets!
