Birthday Party Fun!

I didn't take many pictures at Jensen's birthday party but I did snap these cuties!

Elf Night 2016 aka The Mystical Magical CandyCane SlimJim Forest!

We recently took our annual trip to the Mystical Magical CandyCane SlimJim Forest!  And it did not disappoint!  I know you know the story and the routine, so for now just enjoy these pictures!

Gingerbread House - Troll Style!

The girls have been obsessed with The Trolls ever since their date with Uncle Dan and Aunt Erin so it was only fitting that this year's gingerbread house was in Troll style!  They worked hard and worked together to create a masterpiece!

Winterhaven 2016!

We celebrated Emmett's birthday at Winterhaven last week and had a blast!  The girls fell asleep on the way to the festival but woke up for plenty of "tailgating" before the walk through the lights.  It was chilly but beautiful and fun!  Nothing says Christmas Time like walking through the festival of lights!

Milk and Cookies with Santa at the Stillwell House

A few weeks ago we had a playdate with friends Emma and Ryan at the Stillwell House for Cookies and Milk with Santa!  It was a great event complete with face-painting, balloon animals, arts and crafts, and lots of yummy food.  The kids enjoyed milk and cookies and the grown-ups enjoyed a tamale bar and coffee!  Of course, the highlight was the visit with Santa!  It was a great event that we would definitely do again!

Safety Hold Class

I recently attended a refresher course for the safety hold, that we sometimes have to use at school.  Someone snapped this picture so I had to share it.

Beto's Sister Beta

Our house elf, Beto, is not able to join us this year.  According to his letter, there are some girls somewhere else who are not making good choices and he's trying to help them.  Fortunately, he sent his little sister, Beta, to our home.  We think she's cute and we think it was really nice of Beto to make sure Shyla and Harper are taken care of.  Also, she followed us all the way to Scottsdale this weekend, so she's really on top of things!
