Merry Christmas - Just A Few Days Late

I'm guessing late is better than never! Merry Christmas from our happy little home to yours. It's been a fun filled and busy few weeks around here with me starting a new job, Brian being sick, school parties and concerts and just the general things of trying to get ready for Christmas.

Both Emma and Rebecca had class parties on the 17th. Thankfully I was able to have a couple of days off between jobs and therefore was able to make both of the parties. Rebecca was especially tickled for me to be able to come to preschool.

Emma's little kindergarten party was fun too, there's just nothing cuter to me that a bunch of little 5 year olds. Not sure why but that's pretty much always been my favorite age of child to be around. There were all kinds of messy activities for them. They made reindeer out of candy canes, made little gingerbread houses out of graham crackers, frosting and various candies (messy doesn't even begin to explain that little activity!). I was also there to watch them practice for their concert that night. Just too stinkin' cute!

Ryan and Emma both had concerts that night with Ryan's to start at 5:30 and Emma's at 7:15. "Supposed to start" are the operative words there. Brian was sick and Bex wasn't feeling too well herself so it was just me, Ryan and Emma ... and too many places to be in one night! Since Ryan's didn't start on time I wasn't able to watch all of it. Thankfully some friends of ours were kind enough to bring him to Emma's school for me after they had finished up. He looked oh so handsome!

Emma's little concert was so cute to watch! They first did some songs with the bells. Oh, and while I'm thinking about it - this is the dress that caused all the drama that was mentioned in my previous post. That dress would not have survived the party earlier in the day, there's just no way.

Here's all the little dumplings all dolled out singing for their friends and family. There were as many cameras there as a presidential interview! Little miss Divine is front and center.

And this is what I found when I came home. Brian with his jacket on because he was cold and sweet little Bex sound asleep in his lap. They looked just too comfy for words!

What a whirlwind of a day!
