The girls playing with daddy's Kindle Fire. Unfortunately, Layne is not longer allowed to play with it. She uninstalled everything the other day. Everything is A-OK now though :) 

 Tonight we went to Layne's school for Cookies and Coco with Santa. We started by making coco and then we were off to make Christmas Tree hats! 
 Hayden got to see lots of teachers and friends from last year. It was a good time!
 We also got to make this cute little Santa decoration. 

 Layne has come a long way with the "Santa issue" over the past month. When I first talked with her about it last month she didn't even want to go to Cookies and Coco with Santa. Then she decided that she'd go, but she was NOT going to see Santa. Next she decided that she would sit on his lap but she would NOT talk to him. Today when I asked her about it she said that she would sit there long enough for just ONE picture. She even held up one finger as she told me, so that there would be no confusion about it!! 
Here she is nervously waiting......
I adore the relationship that the girls have with each other. They are each other's best friend and so much more.
 Ok, here we go! 
Finally, a Santa picture with both of them smiling!!!! 
So proud of little Layner!

Pops Birthday

On Sunday we went over to Grandma and Pop's for Pop's 60th birthday party! Here's Hayden feeding Mac! He's getting so big!!

Here's the cake that I made for Pop's party.

The other day we were over there to decorate for the party. Daddy was cutting up firewood and the girls and I were just hanging out.

Hayden was pretending that this was her "tripod" and she was snapping pictures the whole time.

Thanksgiving at Peachtree!

We were invited to celebrate Thanksgiving with Hayden and her class. All of the parents in her class were asked to bring in a vegetable side. The other classes brought in stuff too. While we waited Hayden's class put on a little surprise performance for us! They started with a little pow wow chant thing that was kinda cool.

Then they sang some songs and even counted to 100!!

Our little Indian!!

Indian and her sissy!

Hayden with her best buddy at school- Hartley!

Time to eat!!!

It was delicious and so much fun!!!

Silly Faces....

Just the girls acting crazy and making silly faces for the camera. I had them change shirts because I am going to actually use some of these photos for different projects. 
We have spent that last few nights just looking at the different videos on the blog from way back when. I can't even put into words how special this blog is to me. All of these memories, stories, pictures, and videos are all in one place for me to look at whenever I want. I can't believe how much I forget-the girls sweet little voices, them learning so much, all of the "first" experiences...... 
What precious gifts!!

Jumping In The Leaves!

Today Hayden had a great idea. As we hung out on the back deck and played Hayden started gathering a pile of leaves. When I asked her what she was doing she said she was going to jump in the pile of leaves. I wasn't sure about that, so I told her we'd go to the front yard and rake some leaves into a big pile and do it there......

Her first question was of course, "Where is the front yard?!" as we all laughed Hayden stopped abruptly and said, "No seriously Mom, where is the front yard?!"

After I introduced them to the front yard we got raking!

Then it was time for the fun!!!

Layne doing her "homework" while sissy works on hers. She did have her hair up in a little ponytail but she took it this is the style that we're sporting for the rest of the day!

Shoulder Chef

Hayden got this little bugger for her birthday. It's a little magnetic disc with a magnetic guy. Layne likes to wear him on her head.
