Every christmas with the kids is fun and they just keep getting better and better! this year was especially fun since they understood who Santa was and what sort of things he leaves for good girls and boys. Neither one of them really expressed what they wanted but sulley said she wanted "NERDs" in her stocking and a "purple present." When we asked colton what he wanted, he sorta just stared at us. We suggested a train table and he agreed. So that's what he got - trains and a custom handmade table by Dad Allen.

No birthday in this family is complete without a chocolate eclair cake! so in addition to all the other holiday goodies that were floating around the house, we had a chocolate eclair cake too! no worries though - it was gone in a mere two days!

We had fun hanging out in greenville before Christmas! We didnt do much except visited with friends and family, did a little shopping, took a trip to the Children's Museum, and ate...

There hasn't been much time for baking this holiday season but i managed to squeeze these in while the kids were napping post snowfall. They're pretty easy and pretty cute. I never actually sampled the finished product but have been told they're delish.

After spending the day with friends in Richmond, Colton and Sulley came home plus one new toy each! Colton loves his new drill, tools, and toolbox while sulley is keeping busy these day making apple pie... or as she calls it, "pizza!"

VOILA! our gingerbread house is complete! It only took us 3 days, one to build and two days later, we finally found time in the afternoon to decorate it!
The Aftermath- after trying to eat the candy all afternoon, my two crazed kids enjoyed running around screaming at "waldo the elf" and enjoyed being filmed by greg. They thoroughly enjoy watching the videos of themselves acting like hoodlums. Note - look at sulley's shirt - you can see crusty icing and icing stains left from her work on the house. ATTRACTIVE!

We started decorating for Christmas on Saturday and soon realized that our faux fir looked pitiful so we quickly ran to the corner and picked out a lovely Fraser Fir! yay!!

We kicked off December by attending a Children's Tea with some friends. There goodies and snacks galore, crafts everywhere, and a huge scottie dog and a santa. Colton and sulley loved following the dog around and loved looking at santa from afar, but neither of them would sit for pictures. On the other hand, Connolly, Bobby, and Nattie, all posed for pictures.
