Cookies with Bita

Lots of sprinkles, 
 
reindeer, 
 
and of course a Christmas ghost,
 
 or two!
Yep, that all equals our annual cookie making party with Bita.
Feliz Navidad!

Preschool Christmas Fun

Today was Lily's Christmas program & party. As she started to sing her little songs I got teary watching her sing her little heart out. As I watch her grow and navigate her preschool journey I am just so proud and happy for her. She loves everything about her preschool and I love that she is so happy. She recently watched the classic Rudolf movie and really liked it, so you could just see her eyes light up when it was time to put the red nose on.
 Jingling her bell high and low was another one of her favorite parts. She had been practicing just the right amount of jingle at home all month long.
 After their little program the party part started and three special visitors arrived with their own jingle bells announcing their arrival.
Lily was happy to see Santa once again and tell him exactly what she wanted. However, his visit sparked a question about why all the Santa Clauses look different, but before I could offer up an explanation she came up with it herself. She told me that they are all just wearing costumes since the real Santa is so busy at the North Pole and they are just helpers for him. That is exactly what Chepe and I thought as children, so it completely worked for us and I was happy that she came up with it herself instead of me trying to have to convince her of anything. We always the girls that we believe in the Magic of Christmas, something that lasts forever in my opinion. Ho, Ho, Ho!

I didn't get any pictures, but on 12-12-12 at 12:12pm we were...

Chepe was just getting up from working the night before.
I was working at the computer.
Eden was at school.
Lily was watching shows.

Yep, pretty much a typical day for us. Happy 12-12-12!

Gingerbread Village

This year the girls picked out a gingerbread village to make with Papa.
 Together they built each little building,
 decorating them just how they wanted,
and even though I didn't do much of the work, I got to jump into a picture with the silly little builders too.
Merry Christmas!

Yes, Sir Momma!

Yep, that is now officially the way Lily will respond when she is in helper mode.

Me: Lily, please go put this in the dirty clothes.
Lily: Yes, Sir Momma!
Eden: Momma is not a Sir. She is a girl.
Lily: Yes, Sir Eden.

Fall Festival

Fall festival at Eden's school was bitter sweet this year, mostly because I was in charge of planning it, so that took some of the fun out of it for me. But, the girls had a blast and that is 100% all that matters!
 
Bring on the FUN!
The Bears with their Besties
 One SUPER tired Momma Bear, but those smiles made it all so worth it!
