Christmas Celebration #1

Up first this year is Christmas with my husband's side of the family.

We celebrated and exchanged gifts at my inlaws house with aunts and cousins. Good times. Although there were definitely some family members noticeably absent.

All four kids made out like bandits!

'Tis the Season...

... to be CRAZY busy.

And to spend time with friends and family. December is usually super chaotic, hectic, expensive, awesome. And this one was no different.

I was (and Shane too) feverishly framing my heart out in order to satisfy the Christmas shopping rush. We had a record-breaking month! I am still floating a little on Cloud 9 from that.

The month started at Breakfast with Santa! The kids LOVED it! We went with some friends to the Ritz-Carlton in Jupiter. My kids never cease to amaze me... Ri loved Santa and practically jumped out of the chair into his arms. Rea actually cried - real tears. She thought she was on the Naughty List - she has had a snotty mouth on her as of late and has gotten in quite a bit of trouble. Santa was incredible and assured her that she is on the Nice List, in fact he checked the List twice that morning. Then all the world was right again and it was time to decorate gingerbread houses.

SO SO SO Thankful

I really am blessed. And I know it.

Rea was AMAZING in her Thanksgiving performance at school! It impressed me beyond words how excellent all of the kids did, especially considering they were on stage in front of a full auditorium. 

Cute litte squirrel!

November - Finally

Even though the month is over in real life, the blog has finally made it into the 11th month of 2012! Woo hoo!

This month has had the most incredible weather in south FLA. I have loved it. And so have the kiddos. We have spent a great deal of time outside.

P & M's bday party was fun. T & Ri (who will be in class together next year) played well together on the outdoor soccer thing.
