The Past Few Days.

This week was very busy. We had a church or school activity every night. On Thursday night I was suddenly very sick so on Friday the kids and I relaxed. 

On Saturday night we had our Christmas dinner at church. I was in charge of the rolls and made over 100. Delicious!!

After the dinner we went to parks and rec for a "Light Brite" dance/fundraiser. We all had a blast dancing the night away with glow sticks and fun music. 

Kanzie got a chocolate wand from her friend Grace who just got back from an east coast vacation. Yum!

We spent some time at Bella and Tori's house a few days ago.  The sun was shining and they live on the beach so we went outside and played.  The kids had so much fun! 

We are dog sitting Macy.  This is what she does when she's ready to come inside.  So funny!

Waiting around for Lyssa to get an x-ray.  She has some stomach issues so they were checking for a hernia.  The x-ray came out normal though so that's awesome!

Will loves to play dress-ups!


Mandy had her second band concert last night.  It's the first one I've been to because last time she had one Donnie and I were in North Carolina.  She did great!  They played three numbers and rumor has it that this concert was much improved from the last one.  Here are some pictures taken by one of the other Moms....thanks Kayla for passing them on!

The sunrise (yes we do get sun sometimes in the winter here!) this morning was gorgeous.  As we are approaching our shortest day, every bit of sunlight is appreciated.  On the 20th our sunrise will be at 8:35am and our sunset will be at 3:20pm.  Then, the days will start getting longer!!

The Nutcracker!

Mandy and Melyssa were both rewarded full scholarships for dance and had the opportunity to participate in the Nutcracker.  They both had so much fun and it was amazing to be able to watch. 

Breakfast with Santa.
