Leighton LOVED being in the OWL class this year. We loved being with Ms. Kristi and Ms. Jennifer.   She had a lot of her sweet friends in class with her. She was so excited to get up on stage and perform her song for graduation.  I kept asking her which song she was going to sing, but she wanted it to be a surprise!  They all looked so darling up there! She got really embarrassed when she spotted us in the audience:).  I adore this little doll!

Soccer Season for Leighton

Sweet Leighton was so excited to get to finally play a sport.  Her sweet friend Lila signed up to play with UPWARDS soccer and asked Leighton to play with her. This was a 5 and 6 year old league…and she played up.  We took her to buy cleats, shin guards, and a pink shiny new ball.  She had a lot of fun….and loved that we got to watch HER  do something for a change.  She ran after the ball…for the most part knew which direction she should be going…and scored 2 goals all season.  We were all thrilled for her!

Every game a player gets recognized for a good sportsman character trait.  The very first game Leighton got chosen for “working well with others”.  She was pretty excited to get a medal her very first game!

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!)

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!

Jammies and Heels

Jammies and Heels is our church’s mother/daughter fun night.  They have a lot of arts and crafts, makeup and nail polish stations, decorating cookies, pizza and a movie on the big screen.  You have to be at least 4 years old to attend, so this was Leighton’s first year.   Caroline was excited to show little sis the ropes!  The movie they were showing was The Little Mermaid…Leighton’s VERY favorite!

Leighton LOVED the makeup station!  Free for all, as much makeup as you want to put on!

When Leighton saw this picture, she got embarrassed and wanted to wipe some of it off!

Pumpkin Patch

The girls were invited to a birthday party at a pumpkin patch this year.  They LOVE going to pumpkin patches.   They explored the pumpkin patch, went on a hay ride to feed the animals, and walked through a corn maze.  It was a chilly, yet beautiful morning!  Fun was had by all!
