I got to go with Caroline on her first grade field trip to the zoo.  We had perfect weather…and the kids all loved it!  I love getting to watch Caroline around all of her school friends.  She is such a good friend to everyone.

School Talent Show

Caroline was excited to enter this years talent show.  She chose to sing “My Favorite Things” by Julie Andrews.  She did such a great job!  We were so proud of her!  She got up on stage and sang the whole song perfectly.  She truly looked like a little doll up there!  Way to go Caroline!

The girls had been looking forward to this night for a long time…our church’s annual Daddy Daughter Dance. This was the first year that Leighton would be old enough to attend. She asked me for two weeks, “How much longer until my date?”   They had picked out their dresses and had them hidden in their closets because they didn’t want daddy to see them before the big event.  They were absolutely precious as they were getting ready that evening.  To begin with they were pampered with a bubble bath.   After they got out they picked out a nail polish they each love.  I helped the girls get ready in their bathroom.  They were darling!!  Leighton brought my phone in the bathroom so they could listen to music and jam while they were getting ready.  I painted Leighton’s nails…while Caroline dried Leighton’s hair.  We were all helping each other as my mind fast-forwarded 10 years when the girls would be doing the same thing…getting ready for a REAL date!  I got a little choked up thinking that time is FLYING!!  These sweet baby girls!  If they could end up dating someone as precious as their daddy all would be ok in my world!

 

Ben said they had a blast!  They had dinner and  ice cream sundaes, went on a horse carriage ride, did art’s and crafts, and danced the night away.  Ben said they couldn’t keep Leighton off the dance floor:).  (A little bit like her momma!)

Western Day

The kids always look forward to this day every year.  They love line-dancing in the gym and playing all kinds of “western” games.   It’s one of their favorite school days for sure!  My favorite part is how darling they look all dressed up.

Christmas Fun

Our church put on their 2nd annual “Breakfast with Santa” as an outreach to our community.  It is always a lot of fun.  They have several stations set up:  a huge pancake breakfast, a place to decorate gingerbread men, make your own hot chocolate, write a letter to Santa, make reindeer food, and make arts and crafts.  It is a whole lot of fun!

Leighton was so excited for her school program.  Her class sang “Jingle Bells”.  She told me for two weeks leading up to the program that the song she was singing was a surprise.  Every day she would ask me what song I thought she was singing and I would guess various ones.  She would say, ” I may be singing Jingle Bells….but I may not be singing Jingle Bells.  Mom, do you think I’m singing Jingle Bells?  I’m really not, but maybe so.”  It was hilarious! She is at such a funny stage right now!  She got up on stage and had her little embarrassed look on her face…she was darling!

Next up on the Christmas fun list was Leighton’s preschool party.  They decorated cookies and had a book exchange.

Caroline was excited for her Christmas party as well!  They decorated cookies, did a craft and had a book exchange.  Caroline was very sweet to let little sister Leighton participate in all of the festivities!

After Caroline’s party we all walked down the hall to Carter’s class party.  He decorated cookies and had a puzzle exchange.  They played a funny game where you tie a shoe box around your waist (with a hole cut out in the top of it) filled with bells.  You had to shake and shimmy to get the bells to fall out of the box…it was pretty funny!

I love being able to be at all of the kids parties…I have just as much fun as they do!  Blessed by these 3 sweet babies…very grateful!
