For the first time since he was a baby, Dylan sat on Santa's lap without a problem!
I took Maggie on her special date for her birthday (yes for those of you tracking, it was in February!). We went to Build-a-Bear and McDonald's. We had a GREAT time and I really love the one on one interaction!!
Meet "Paggie" :)
We had the girls spend the night, so we renewed our tradition of making Christmas cookies :) We also made our own pizzas. The kids were great and we had a blast...although, I'm still finding sprinkles on the floor!
Chocolate chip (pink) pancakes...Ella made my day when she said they were the best pancakes she had ever had!
D was SO proud of this card he made for Uncle Chris! He did everything on it himself!! He's getting so old!
Sophie (our elf) was in a birthday hat on my birthday, so D wanted to wear one too during breakfast :)
On my birthday, we had a fun day of kiddo performances! First Dylan's holiday concert in the morning followed by Ella's ballet recital in the afternoon! And then dinner and cake at Craig Street :)
This past weekend, Grandma Toni came into town to celebrate Christmas. She and Dylan had a special date on Friday and had a blast! We had dinner with my fam on Friday night...then on Saturday, we went shopping to pick out a mattress for Dylan's new race car bed (thanks Grandma Toni and Grandpa Karl). The weather wasn't great, so we hit up a movie as well...(is it weird that I really liked the movie Frozen??)
Playing with the bathtub race car toy!!
At IHOP...I blame Aunt NiNi!
Snow angels, shoveling and some sliding followed by hot cocoa with Ella :)
I hope everybody out there has a fabulous Christmas!! Thanks for being a part of our lives!! I'm sure I will have many many pics to post from Christmas! But until then, we love you all and have a great Christmas and a happy 2014!
