Its beginning to look a LOT like Christmas...

We went this past weekend & got our Christmas tree. The girls were wild running through the lot at full speed weaving in & out of the trees. Court just had wide eyes the whole time taking it all in and wanting to touch the prickles with one finger. Its going to be a magical Christmas season.

Hanging in the sleigh.

Running WILD!

Court & Daddy.

Putting on a show.
These 2 attract a lot of attention when we go out (think its a twin thing) but they certainly love all eyes on them.


Mommy & Court.
He learned how to wave bye-bye and it is just precious.

Harper telling what she wants Santa to bring her for Christmas.
She has had some odd requests...

Oh to be 3!

The girls are ALMOST 3.... just a few days to go. It did not stop them from starting the celebration a little early over Thanksgiving weekend. We had a small family birthday for the girls with cake and a few gifts. Oh to be 3!

Happy Birthday to me & me!

Blowing out the candles, 3 each of course!

Chocolate cake, yes please.
This little guy ate more than his big sissies at Thanksgiving.
This kid has not met many foods he did not like.
Chocolate may top the list!

How old are you? 3!!!!

Harper opening gifts

Court & Grumpa

Tyler found a special toy hiding in a birthday bag. Elfie!
Thank you Elf on the Shelf for telling Santa what the girls are up to every day. Hoping this helps to keep the shenanigans to a minimum for December.

Thanksgiving Playgroup

We had the girls playgroup yesterday and Wells' Mom went all out and served up a Thankgiving supper for all the kids complete with pilgrim hats & turkey placemats. Super cute! Everyone seemed to dibble in the traditional Thanksgiving food and made sure to save room for some yummy Turkey cupcakes.

Saying the blessing.



We are on the Turkey Day countdown...

Hmmm, not much time to blog lately! Busy, busy, busy! The holidays are getting close, the girls turn 3 in just a few weeks & we are constantly on the go. But here are a few pictures of what we have been up to this week....

Harper, Court & Tyler
Getting excited about Thanksgiving.
Gobble Gobble!

Sweet Sissies, turned mischief makers...

The result of their mischief...
Dad's GPS watch that was finally retrieved from the potty after the plumber spent 2 hours taking the potty apart. It was found but certainly does not work anymore.
Please tell me the 3's are not worse than the 2's!

The boys

Pizza Party!

It was a rainy day and we spent the day being lazy at home just enjoying each other. We played games, Mommy did laundry (lots!), Court thought about crawling and then as dinner was approaching we decided it was time to cook! Homemade pizza was on the menu and the girls were so excited to make it and Mommy was happy to have an activity to keep everyone busy.

Spreading out the flour...

Kneading the dough.

Hmmm, was this really a good idea?

Sauce time!

And voila, homemade pizza. Delicious!

Court sure thought it was good.
