A few random moments...

Carrots & Dip and a show...
Nativity FHE
I finally figured out how to get Alayna to smile for a picture. I am holding up a Santa toy that sings and dances. Yay for smiles!
One of many nightly advent calendars. Alayna is WAY into candy.
Blake's work party = date night!
Just about every morning I find the toilet bowl cleaner thingy out around the house...I knew Alayna was the culprit, but couldn't figure out why. Every night I vacuum the downstairs and tonight Alayna was right at my feet. She ran off for a minute; then came back carrying the cleaning wand. She followed me everywhere, pushing it back and forth. Doesn't she know she has a toy vacuum?!
These next few pictures were a giggle...I always know when Sammie has had her hands on the camera.

Preschool Christmas Party

Why does each school party consist of the parents standing around, watching their kids eat? Not the most, Alayna and I took over the extra seat and pounded M&Ms.
Sam's job that day was prayer leader.
At the end of the party, he kids had a book exchange.

"Tonight's Gonna Be a Good Night"

Sammie has been practicing for her preschool Christmas since before Thanksgiving. She comes home from school everyday pretending to be her music teacher, Ms Jay Jay. She carries around stacks of stapled paper and acts out the entire play. My favorite is when she sings, "Happy Birthday Jesus."Sammie got to be THE STAR.

 This girl sang her heart out!
 And remembered all the actions to every song.
 "I'm so glad it's Christmas!"
