She performed in the Nutcracker for the first time last night! She loved it! Here is Abby in costume:

Is she happy or what?! She loves her pink roses, she has them by her bed.

Busy, busy

Here is a picture of this year’s cookie exchange goodies:

I made ranger cookies

I have another exchange tomorrow with my family. The kids are excited to attend a cookie exchange! I usually go to them without them

I am working a lot this week. I am looking forward to being home with my sweeties tomorrow

Here is a picture of the snow we had this week

I am very happy to have dry roads again today!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season! I am trying to stop, soak it in and enjoy it

One tradition the kids and I have had this month is putting on Christmas music and doing crafts with the kids. This has been one of my favorite memories. They get in a zone and just work away, so cute

Here is a picture of a craft Abby set up for me to do with her. She set up a spot for me and for her, so cute! I think she was trying to imitate her teachers how they prep centers for the kids

Homemade wrapping paper

Lately we turn on some Christmas carols and do arts in crafts in the afternoon-
Today we made gifts and homemade wrapping paper- Abigail colored on it, and added foam art. Andrew made a painting of a “cactus vegetable garden” -it is a beautiful painting!

Andrew is learning his letters- he knows a, c and n so far. Here is what he wrote today during quiet time

Quote of the day

Abby walked in the kitchen tonight and out of the blue said to me: ” when i am a mom one day I will miss you” and then she started crying:(

She says she wants to sleep in the same place as me forever:)

I think she is figuring out the circle of life…
