Things that make me smile

Getting yet another Medicare eligibility notice in the mail.

Lunch with a great friend, and watching her excitement as she opens her Christmas present.

Ribbon candy given to me from my sweet friend, Heather. Reminds me of my Grannie.

These sweet faces. ♥

Getting one step closer to being fully potty trained!

Merry (early) Christmas!

Since we (all 10 of us) are going to be in Arizona over Christmas, we celebrated a little early. We started the morning with just the four of us enjoying "Christmas morning" at our house. The boys looooved their gifts, but were still trying to figure out how Santa knew to come early. This is definitely getting tricky! :-)

How can this face not make you smile??

And still enjoying in two hours later...

That night, we went over to my parents to do our Caspers/Lance/Stone Christmas. It was a wonderful evening of family, food, and of course... more presents!

Judah's Christmas Program

Did you catch the title of this post? Judah's CHRISTMAS Program. Yup... we get to celebrate Christmas at our school. ♥

Sean is pretty hit or miss as to if he'll actually sing, but the older he gets, the more he is participating. He was SO handsome (see below) and did a great job! We were all so proud of him! I was pretty proud of myself for only tearing up twice during the performance too. ;-)

Sean and his "best friend" at school, Jacob. (The reason he "never ever wanted to take another peanut butter sandwich to school, because I can't sit by Jacob at lunch!)

What do you do when you have $3.00 buring a hole in your pocket? Why you grab your adorable kiddos, practice your silly faces, and find the nearest photo booth of course!
