Pj party!

EEP! I'm so very far behind on sharing what we've been up to this December.

But first I wanted to share a few Holiday PJ pics.

I got these last year for the whole family and haven't been able to get their dad back in his.  I know y'all miss that.

We rode the Polar Express this year and wore our matching jams.

And getting 4 kids to look at the camera at the same time equals impossible.

Heck. I can barely manage to get two to take a good picture.

Don't be fooled though folks.  Their love for one another is fierce.

Lastly, our annual Chicago trip and Elf Pjs.

Nutcracker 2014

We have been taking Carsyn to see the local Nutcracker performance since she was 15 months old.

And every year she has sat through the show mesmerized.

Last year she cried because she wasn't on stage and I promptly enrolled her in ballet that January.

Fast forward to present and my sweet girl finally made her debut.

She danced a routine to "Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" for the opening act and I could not have been a prouder momma.

Here she is during rehearsal night.

And we're off for opening night..

Carsyn and Miss Brittany before the show.

Are they not the cutest?

And full of personality!

She had a few fans show up!

Watching the show.

We decided to give her a doll as a gift for her performance.  I wanted her to have something she would always treasure and I just love American Girl dolls.

And how pretty is the American Girl nutcracker gown?

Carsyn danced with her nutcracker all night pretending she was the lead character.  Such a special night with special people.

Catch up

Hope you've got a lot of time folks because we've got lots to catch up on!

We started November with a check up at the Doctors office.  Hank weighed in at 34 lbs and Carsyn at 32.  She is 40" tall and Hank is 36" tall.

We also celebrated my friend, Ricarda's sweet daughter Kasyn's second birthday.  Clearly Kasyn was more interested in eating cake than posing with Carsyn,

We ventured down to Rupp to watch the cats play.  If you look at the pic closely you can see basically the entire snack stand balancing on the hubby's lap.  So that's the secret of getting a 2 year old to sit through an entire ball game. Pizza, hot dogs, popcorn, and Sprite.

We went to the Lexington Holly Day Market too.

Hanky had just had his flu shots which made him terribly cranky so I was SHOCKED when he climbed up in Santa's lap and wrapped his arms around him professing his love.

Carsyn's favorite was Mrs Claus.

My sweet niece Emersyn turned 1 and had a twinkle twinkle little star birthday.

Isn't she the cutest?

We also went and had Thanksgiving lunch with Maddox.  I really thought he'd try to be the cool kid and ignore us but he was so excited.  He kept showing Carsyn and Hank around and holding their hands.  He's the sweetest child.

And yay!! A pic of Rosie. Love her!

We took the kiddos to see the new Penguins movie and they loved it.  Aren't they hilarious?

We visited EKY and had Thanksgiving with our families.

And we wrapped up Thanksgiving weekend with a trip to the tree lot.

I'm still decorating and haven't really started shopping yet!! Time to get with it! Hope y'all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
