Evening with Santa

Wednesday night at church, the kids got a surprise visit from Santa. M and C are in his lap and Z is in front of them.
C was very happy to tell Santa that he wanted pirate Lego's and the Bat cycle (which is part of a Batman castle set)
Z just copied M and said she wanted a new dolly house. She did however say that she wanted the boy baby doll that can swim under water in the tub or pool.
M also wants a new dolly house and she would like the girl baby doll that can swim.
Merry Christmas to everyone!!!!!

Big "B" turns 36!!!

Saturday night b/4 B's b/day, we met his mom for dinner. His Granny sent a straw hat, corn cob pipe, and a sweet poem about him becoming a farmer.
After dinner, we all went to see the Briarwood Ballet. The girls were SOOO excited!! We all had a great time. (Thanks MiMi!)

Daddy's b/day cake. We didn't have a number 6 so we improvised! At church, C proudly announced to everyone that Daddy was turning FIFTY SIX!!!!!!! It was too funny!

Birthday Boy!!

Monday: cereal
Tuesday: Hamburgers
Wednesday: Church (we eat dinner at church every Wed. night)
Thursday: Out (which means she would like to eat out)

MAJOR haircuts today!!!!

The girls hair b/4 their haircuts today.
The girls hair afterwards. C is saying "Touchdown Mom".
I only wanted 3" taken off of Z's hair and 5" taken off of M's hair.
Needless to say, the beautician got a little scissor happy and I had to stop her on M's hair and trim things up at home b/c she kept making it uneven.

The girls are happy with their new "do's" and that is all that matters. Our morning routines will go much faster now!!!

1st time roller skating

C's football team had a roller skating party to celebrate the end of the season and to give out awards. It was their first time to ever go rolling skating.
Z got the hang of it and I didn't snap the picture fast enough but she skated all by herself!!

Here are Z and C hanging on for dear life onto the hand rail while this kid comes zooming by!

Look at M go!! She caught on the fastest and had NO fear!

Even with Daddy's help (who hasn't skated in over 15 yrs.), C just couldn't get the hang of it.

Daddy and the girls
All of the boys received trophies and good praises and they came in 3rd place in their age group. Not too bad!!!!

Happy Belated Halloween

Z was very excited to get her hands gooey!
Getting both hands dirty.

M didn't like the feel of it at first.

She finally started enjoying herself.

C was a little hesitant to touch the slimy guts too!

But he too, got into the spirit of cleaning out his pumpkin.

The finished products!! They helped draw the faces on each of their pumpkins.

Z was Spider Girl, C was a ghost, and M was a "Married girl" (a.k.a. A Bride)

I went to our churches Trunk or Treat as a witch.

Daddy went as the fired Auburn offensive coordinator.
