Merry Christmas 2012

I just realized it has been over a year since I've posted. Wow, how time flies. This was after waiting 2 hours to take a picture with Santa. You bet we made the twins sit on his lap. Hopefully they forgive us. We asked them if they want a picture with the Easter Bunny and all their emotions came rushing back of this day. "Nooo!" Santa was nice and had time to ask Ethan and Lydia what they wanted for Christmas. It was lovely to have 2 weeks off of school. Counting down the days till' Spring Break now!

Girls Night

Little Ash, just snug as a bug in a rug!
Introducing... ANNA!
Olivia's pizza of perfection!
Sage, Lydia, and Kira. I love how happy they are. Lydia just asked me yesterday, "Mom, when are we having another girls night?" I replied, "like a date for me and you?" Matter of factly, Lydia said, "No, like when Sage and Kira and Anna and Olivia come have a sleepover at our house." I guess we need to do it more than twice a year!
This was a spur of a moment date with Ethan and Lydia to The Best Christmas Pageant Ever play. I have to admit, it was pretty great. I cried and really felt the Christmas Spirit. I hope to make it a new tradition to go to a play with my little sweethearts.

Derby at Hollywood Connection

The fun carousal the girls could have gone on ALL night! They loved it.

Ash with her serious face with Grandma Jean.

Who would have thought to have an indoor roller coaster? Genius. As you can tell, the kids couldn't get enough. Elijah, Ethan, and Lydia.
Michelle coaching in her skirt and skates! This was the halftime break for the kids. Olivia taking her cousin, Maya around the skating rink.

This girl takes after her Mom and loves derby! Olivia smiling big. It was fun to watch and cheer them on. I'm sad I didn't get a picture of Vincent, but I'm sure his proud mama has lots!

Everyone loves Anna Banana!

Sweeten Christmas Party

Carson, Nixon and Ethan as Wisemen at the Annual Sweeten Nativity.

Belle just content watching, I tried to make her be an Angel with Ash, but that was a no go!

The beautiful Angels; Sierra, Ashlyn, Lydia, and Abby.

Brig is so animated! Love that kid. Cute cousins.

Tara and Chris (I was eyeing that hat the whole white elephant party!!) I have to admit that Chris wears it well.

Natalia and Ty

Andrea, me, and Laura. Love them.

Not everyone was able to make it to the Cohort Party, we were missing quite a few. I feel like these girls are my second family! We spend a minimum of 3 hours everyday together in class, plus preparation for presentations and such. I am so blessed to be surrounded by positive people who inspire me to be the best teacher I can be! I heart you all!

Christmas Sing!

Ethan and Lydia just sang their hearts out at their school Christmas sing. I love how they love music, almost as much as Jared and I!!

Ashlyn and Brielle just love to go to E E and Lulu's school. They get to go at least once a week. We make it a priority to get a chocolate milk from the lunchroom. They can't wait to go to school!

Merry Christmas from the Adams kiddos. They are so stinkin' funny. I don't know what we did to deserve such a happy, silly bunch of kids, but I think we'll keep em'!

Gingerbread House Decorating

Costco made the gingerbread house such a delight. This year even the house was all glued together. Simple, easy, very little mess, fun for the kids... that is what I'm talking about. Ethan and Lydia took charge and had a blast decorating. Ashlyn and Brielle were just trying to sneak as much candy as they could.

They did the tree and their gingerbread men all by themselves.

Ash eating a treat.

Geez Mom! Just trying to sneak a "teat." She sure has a big, beautiful smile.

The finished project. We ended up having to throw the house away after a week or so, sad news. The fence slowly disappeared as did any piece of frosting hanging. Any time it was just too quiet in the house, you'd find Ash and Belle sitting on the counter picking off candy. Silly girls.
