Santa and snowflake lane........

Last night we had our annual Santa/Dinner/Snowflake Lane outing! It was magical, Mia was in LOVE with all the holiday happenings. And little Ryan was a trooper as usual. She told Santa she wanted a bike and asked him where his elves were.

Oh she loved Snowflake Lane she danced like crazy and hugged every animal she could get her hands on.

LR slept through the ENTIRE thing! Even when the drummers came and we banging their drums right next to him.

Oh Christmas Tree........

Yesterday we went and got our Christmas Tree. The kids are a little sick but we bundled them up and cut one down anyway. Mia loved the experience and we are lucky to live close to so many tree farms.

She is so helpful!

Still helping!


Thanksgiving was wonderful. We started off the day with Bobo and Tam Tam then headed to my Aunt Ellen's to celebrate with the Sweeney's. We have so much to be thankful for and feel so blessed this year. In this picture Mia was feeling particularly blessed for the Turkey rice krispy treats I made ;)

My boy learned to suck his thumb, hooray for self-soothing! And he looks so cute doing it :)

Ryan and I went out for my 30th birthday! We got a work out in, dinner, shopping and most importantly a night of sleep in a hotel-it was amazing. I forgot how WONDERFUL a night of sleep can be :) My Mom, Dad and sister are worth their weight in gold for tackling my little monsters overnight!
Ryan thought it was a good time to start snowflake lane!!!!

Tonight Ryan and Mia walked in the rain! She absolutely loved it!!!!

Mia's first flower girl gig!

Ryan's sister Brittaney got married this weekend and Mia was a flower girl! She loved dressing up and especially loved dancing!

These two are ridiculous!

They told Mia to take all the flowers out of her basket........

So, that is what she did!

Ryan with his siblings.......

The dancing machine!

Love these 3!!!!!

Keeping busy......

We have been staying pretty busy these days, here is a little of what we have been up to! Mia loves playing baseball with Dada, (I wonder why-it might have something to do with going to Tam's softball games)

I got Beez this great easel at Ikea for 15.00!! AND it folds down flat so we don't have to look at it all the time! ;)

Little Ryan's first time in the big tub with sissy! And he smiles so much more now and is talking so much-I forgot how sweet newborn talking is!

Jalyn and Brayden came over last week to play!

Park time!

Lunch time!

Story time!

Craft time

(PS this is a really easy fun craft for kids, all you need is marshmallows and toothpicks and let them use their imagination and build.....)
