New Year's Eve

For New Year's Eve, we decided to go to Hotel Roanoke and see the pretty Christmas trees and then head to Nina's for some fun snacks and watching the balls drop from other years on Youtube (because these girls don't need to stay up til midnight!

This sweet tree was the favorite!

Christmas fun with the Jones family!

Such a fun Christmas morning!  Thank you Grandma and Papa for so many wonderful presents!

New dress up clothes!  They had to try them on right away!!

Karis is excited about Grace's boutique!

Susanna disappeared for a while and we found her like this in our room... She had pushed the rocking chair up to the dresser to get the candy canes.  She said she was "just looking at them" but a couple of them were a little wet like she had licked them... :)

We went to my folks house  again when my brother and his family came to visit.  So much fun with all the kiddos!

Christmas in our new house!

 This Christmas was a little different for us... we moved less than 2 weeks before Christmas so we didn't get to decorate like normal. Grandma gave us a little tree to decorate and we had fun with it.  But the girls were disappointed that it wasn't big enough to put all the presents underneath.  So I had the idea to hide their presents around our new house and give them silly rhyming clues to find them.   The girls loved it and begged to do it again next year even when we have a big tree up!

December fun!

Karis was in a fun western play at school and we all enjoyed listening to her her sing!

She looked so cute in her braids :)

Karis was also excited to be able to wear her fancy new dress to sing Christmas songs at the church dinner:

Sweet sisters in Christmas dresses

Shortly after we moved, we invited the Vargas family over to go Christmas caroling in our new neighborhood and enjoy hot chocolate.  Elena and Susanna had so much fun together!

Yay for hot chocolate!
