Just like every other December, this year was as busy as can be! Although, I loved it. I always get so sad when the holidays are getting close, because I don't want them to end and I love my kids being at the magical age they are - but by the time its over, I am so ok with it! I get kind of overwhelmed with all the expectations and all of the obligations, but this year it wasn't as bad as years previous. So, here is a little peak at our busy and fun December!
I love Claire's preschool....everything about it. Miss Lorie gets those kids so ready for school, and at the same time it is still so old school and darling. It is nothing fancy or showy, and just the way I like it. Every year they have a pajama party and then they put on a little program for the parents. Claire sang her little heart out, and was as cute as a button!
We were invited to a friends house for Breakfast with Santa. It was so cute, and he was a really believable Santa (unlike so many). The funny thing is, Claire didn't want to have any part of Santa. You can kind of tell by this picture, that she wasn't too jazzed to be sitting on his lap! I am sure part of it is there were a million fun toys in the basement that she couldn't wait to get her hands on. Lilly loved the party though! She is such a social butterfly!
The girls got these stuffed bears at the ward party, and they were a favorite for a while. Its funny how dollar store toys end up being the favorite toys sometimes! I snapped this picture before Church because I thought they looked so cute and festive!
Free Ice Skating with Santa. He was pretty much the worst Santa I have laid eyes on. And, he was super unfriendly. Both girls picked up on it very quickly that there was no way he was the real Santa. The ice rink was packed that day since it was free, but the girls had a ball with all their friends from their school and neighborhood.
This is one of our darling babysitters whom we adore! We went to a party at her parents house, and she couldn't wait to have the girls open some presents she got for them. I thought that was so sweet!
It was a fun and packed December!
