Girlfriends Xmas 2011

The hostesses and our very own Martha (MaiBrit Harvey)

The group!!! (I was the one pressing the timer so I had to slide in)

The hostesses. Thanks to Cheryl for opening up your lovely home to all of us crazies!!!

This year I was one of the hostesses. We revisited our youth and did a kid themed night.
Complete with a School bus light/bar tour, s'mores, mac n cheese and
pigs in a blanket, and a good ol brown lunch sacks for the bus (don't forget the jello shots)!

It was a fun night with fabulous ladies!!!! To stick with the theme, instead of
gifting to each other, we all brought a gift for a needy child. I feel
so lucky to have such wonderful friends!!!

Santa in the north end....

I only had my phone so these will have to do. Once again the mogensen's were gracious enough to throw a Santa bash. I love this party probably more than any other Christmas party. Such great memories for our kids. Thanks again mogs!!!!

Another from my work Holiday party

Keaton and Delaney in their 3-D glasses

Family time

This past Friday was Papa's Birthday. Keaton made him a card and helped me make cookies. We surprised Papa with a visit on Friday to deliver them. Then we had them over on Sunday for dinner. Keaton helped me bake Papa a cake and was pretty excited to sing Happy Birthday to him.

Singing Happy Birthday Helping Papa blow out his candles.

Uncle Dodo hasn't seen the kids since before Thanksgiving so he paid us a visit on Sunday. Not sure what to do with Josie's hair. One of the downsides of having hairy kids :)

Getting in the spirit!

The Holidays are upon us! With the start of December we were thrown right into the Holiday fun! We put up our Christmas decorations Thanksgiving weekends and are in full Holiday party mode with 3 more this weekend!! I can't believe only 19 more days until Christmas. Yes, we are counting them down in our house. We also have a visitor at our house. Smidgy, our very own Elf on the Shelf has come to live with us during the Holidays. He makes nightly trips back to the North Pole to report to Santa. I have to admit. Keaton was a little freaked out at first, but I think he has finally warmed up to him. Ah, the memories! Keaton informed us he needed a Santa costume.
He made due with two stockings and a hat.

Keaton and Daddy with the finished product.

Placing the star on the tree.

A group photo at my work Holiday party. In theory it was a good idea to do something different and have the kids attend. That is unless you are the parents of the young kids. We really didn't get to socialize very much as we were too busy parenting. Keaton got to sit on Santas lap and was very excited while we were waiting. Once again he clammed up and didn't say a word. But, Santa said he could just tell Smidgy and he would report to Santa.


Keaton and Josie's first bath together. She loves it...right?
A leftover from Halloween. Keaton and Delaney. I work with Delaney's mom. You might remember their Halloween photo together from last year. She was a character from Yo Gaba Gaba! She is a cutie! I think Keaton has a crush on her. We had our work Christmas party last Friday at the Botanical Gardens and these two were inseperable.

Papa and his girl.

We had a nice low key weekend at home. The weather finally feels like fall, we even had a few snow flurries. We cozied up and stayed home most all weekend. It was nice :)
