It's been an awesome couple of weeks around here and we are gearing up for Christmas!
Leah vacuumed the living room and then wanted to vacuum out inside the couch. Who am I to say no to that? Then, she kept sticking her fingers into the attachment which made it make funny sounds. Gracie is laughing and laughing and saying, "The vacuum is tooting! The vacuum is tooting!" with great little girl glee :)
Reading with Grandma Linda before bed on Maggie's grandparent birthday party day.
Maggie with one of her sweet friends at her friend birthday party. My number one birthday party tip? Have a friend come to help! It made everything SO much easier! Thanks, Becca!
Let's discuss why I take daily pictures. #1 I want to remember what every day life is like when the girls are little. #2 Sometimes the pictures I take are take represent the little bit of good in an otherwise difficult day. Yes, this picture falls in the number 2 category. I think this moment was the only time they weren't fighting. Sigh.
Being silly in their Christmas dresses after decorating the tree!

I got to be the Mystery Reader in Maggie's class. So fun having my inner forensics nerd come out!
The girls found some time to craft while we celebrated Thanksmas!
Maggie taking down our Advent card for the day.
I love this sweet picture of Gracie! She loves drawing on the condensation on the door.
We ate dinner by candlelight the other night. It was fun even though Gracie spilled her milk into the tea lights.
The girls got to decorate Christmas cookies with royal icing. The did an awesome job! Royal icing is kind of a pain to make, but I think it's actually easier for them to use icing in a squeeze bottle than using a butter knife to spread butter cream frosting.
Random Christmas tradition: driving around looking at lights, but eating supper at Taco John's first :)
I hope your last weekend before Christmas goes great! We actually have a wedding on Saturday. Should be fun!
