Preschool Christmas Show

Teddy (he's in the back) and his class waiting for the show to start.

Last week, Violet came from school and announced she was the STAR of the show. I of course responded, "Oh yes, sweetie you're all stars!" Well, she was accurate. Violet was literally the star IN the show!

A Few Random

The Sunday we got back from Thanksgiving, we headed out to pick out our Christmas tree.  

This little stinker is ready for some freedom in the car. He always want to ride in the big boy seats (and yes, he's wearing head phones - my little hip hop star).

Birthday parties and fun with friends.

St. Nick gave us all tickets to see Frozen on Ice in Greensboro, NC (about an hour and half away). If any parents are considering, I'd highly recommend it. Very entertaining for us all.

A little too much Frozen for them to handle.

The next morning, Violet woke up with a fever and spent the day at home, but is feeling better now. She didn't dare miss her Christmas show at school this week.

Our Elf hiding in Max's stocking. If you couldn't tell, these next few pictures were taken by the kids.


For Thanksgiving, we traveled to Lake Norris, TN where we met up with all our cousins, brothers, sisters-in-laws and parents. All 15 of us stayed in a cabin in the middle of the woods overlooking the lake. It was a beautiful, peaceful setting - minus the 7 kids running around like animals!

Leaves, Baths, Swimming and Cars

Here's what we've been up to lately.

It's very rare that Teddy gets a bath alone, so when the time comes, it's pretty hard to get him out, even if the water is freezing cold.

But telling him Curious George needs a ride in the stroller, helps.

Kids just finished their swimming class this month and Max was very proud to show off his freestyle skills.

We visited the Charlotte Auto Show this past weekend and I'm pretty sure the kids sat in in the place.

Enjoying the weather in uptown Charlotte after the Auto Show.
