December fun!

Whenever Susanna sees a camera, she comes right up to the camera and says, "cheese!"

This "cheese face" never fails to crack us up:

Karis was very excited about her new hat and coat and muffler from Grandma and Papa:



Karlie all excited about her school Christmas concert:

Singing with the K4 and K5 group:

Karis and Karlie ready to sing in their church Christmas program:

Karlie had a fun Christmas party at school with lots of yummy treats!

I resorted to letting Susanna paint so that I could get some schoolwork done with the big girls... She was so excited!


Susanna saw my Ergo laying on the chair and brought it to be with her baby doll so she could carry her baby around :)

Susanna loves our kitties a bit too much!  They sure are patient!

Reading is much more fun with a kitty!

Pup-pup is always a good sport :)

Karis decorated Frosty... such a patriotic kitty!


Christmas with Nina and Papa

Here are some of the pictures we took at Nina and Papa's house of the girls enjoying their Christmas there:


Yes we are still a bit obsessed with Frozen:





A very high class and relaxing manicure from Aunt Mel!  She is the best!

 A fun "Frozen" puzzle

It was so nice to have a pretty day for swinging!

Christmas fun

Two days before Christmas, we celebrated with the girls at our house because we were heading to my parents' house.  This year was extra special because it was the first year that we took the girls to pick out their own presents for their sisters.  We hit up the Dollar Tree and the Dollar Spot at Target for some thoughtful gifts that they were really excited about.  In addition, all the girls had been secretly making special crafts for each other over the last month.  They were so excited about finally giving their gifts to each other!

Karlie gave Susanna a microphone and she loved it!



Susanna went a little crazy about opening gifts so the only way to settle her down was to give her a gingerbread cookie :)






Every year Mark finds a special heart ornament for me and the girls were excited about it also.  Susanna jumped in for the picture but her mouth was still full of gingerbread cookie :)

Karis made Daddy a huge fun poster with game her could play with her like hang man and tic tac toe:

Karis had been wanting this crazy cat toy ever since we got the kittens last summer.  Mark found it on clearance and it was probably the present she was most excited about.  Frosty was nice enough to jump on my lap for an opportune picture:
