We started the new year with our amazing friends. We had a great time visiting and laughing, and our children partied hard into the night.

As I was kissing everyone goodnight, I noticed they all are sleeping in some sort of crazy way tonight. Reed is surrounded by pillows and 25 stuffed animals.
Ridley is wiped out on the sofa after enjoying her Nabi. She even lost her wolf ears.
I found Ryland upstairs in his pillow fort behind the chair in the gameroom. I don't see how this is comfortable, but he is out.

We are enjoying our family time together and playing with every new toy. Today, we are making homemade cotton candy. It was pretty interesting to learn how cotton candy is made and watch the hard candy turn into thin strings. It was very easy to find a few cute taste testers.
The bickering brothers discovered a new "punishment" today. Hug it out timeout! Ha!
Ridley wore herself out playing with all her new dolls. Tonight she chose to sleep with Elena. Such a sweet cuddler.

The kids woke up excited to check out their new stuff. They were so happy to see new toys and clothes. Ridley's favorite item was her doll house. Ryland's favorite item was his new bike, and Reed's favorite item was the foosball table.
We were lazy all day and just played around the house. We had birthday cake and sang happy birthday to Jesus, since He is the reason for the season.

We enjoyed an amazing Christmas Eve service at White's Chapel. The message of joy, love, and peace spoke to our hearts, and the children really liked the parachute candy and the snow machines at the end of service.
Before we could go to bed, we sprinkled the reindeer food across the front yard. Hopefully they like glitter and oatmeal.
Santa knew just what to bring the kiddos. Bikes, dollhouse, foosball table, Shopkins, and lots of Under Armour!

While John Chris and Ryland are away at the camp, I had fun with the little ones. We made a big pallet with lots of stuffed animals. I love watching Ridley and Reed together. They are such great buddies.
Goodnight my loves.

This was a dream come true. I have wanted to share this experience with my little girl, and I was so proud of her. She did a great job smiling and dancing at her recital. She is a precious little snow angel.
We gave her a ballerina music box with a charm necklace, and she was so proud. This was truly a special day.

Lots of fun at the annual Kinder Gingerbread decorating party. Ridley was thrilled to join Reed and have some fun. I think there was more icing licking than actual decorating, but we had fun doing it.

Old Union PTO hosted a Kinder only Christmas party. The students were invited to wear their pajamas to watch The Polar Express and make Christmas crafts. Reed had a blast, and all the children were thrilled when Santa showed up. Love our school!
