Just a little late...

Here's a few shots from Sean and Teisha's wedding in August...a little late I know but my camera wasn't working then so I didn't have any shots of my own. Enjoy! Uncle Sean's Big Day

The gorgeous flower girls...Shelby being shy and Lyndsey hamming it up- so them!

All of us...I had hoped to get one of just the 5 of us at some point during the day but my camera wasn't working so unfortunately we didn't have one- it sure would have been nice though

The First of Many... programs. Shelby had her first school program at Sparta today. The kindergarteners sang Christmas songs for their families. They did a fabulous job! I believe they sang about 8 different songs, a few had hand motions, and didn't miss a beat. I'm sure they will get more elaborate as we go but for the first, it was great! Shelby acted shy when they first came out.

She quickly warmed up to it all when they started singing- notice she's playing with the string on her's still in tact here.

More singing, still playing with the strings- notice the string next to the one she has in hand

Here's our beautiful Shelby in the dress she loves to pieces literally...she played with the string so much it is now frayed- after 1 wear- so Nana is going to have to change out the ribbon so we can wear it again! Gotta love her!

FBC Family Cookie Party '09

Shelby's cookie- an assortment of everything gross (to an adult anyway)! Her next one was worse- it was covered in Nerds...yuck...but she ate it all!

Lyndsey's creation- jellybeans, marshmallows, and spiced gumdrops- yummy (gag)!

Mikey's was baby style- cookie and icing- as you can see, he was hungry and was trying to steal it from me...he thoroughly enjoyed the little bit we gave him.

Tanner and Shelby- her buddy from Bible Fellowship who also sits by her at big church now...coincidence- Mommy thinks not- I think he has a crush on her! We're just not ready for that at age 5 :)

Lyndsey and Brody enjoying their cookies together- do I notice a pattern already??? I think Daddy's in for some serious troubles later on!!! :)

A Joyful Noise

Christmas is the time for singing! Shelby had a performance in the Children's Choir program last night and did a fabulous job!! She loves to sing as everyone already knows- no matter what genre of music it might be. She did a great job and actually sang out so you could hear her. They sang "Away in a Manger" and a shortened version of "What Child is This?". The three of them were beaming ear to ear when they were finished- it was too cute!

Is this the REAL Santa?

Christmas on the Chisholm Trail

We braved the cold for an evening of least that was the plan. Dane had to work one of the booths so we thought we would go see what Christmas on the Chisholm Trail was all about and it was going to have pictures with Santa which would save a trip to the crowded mall with three children. The kids had lots of fun jumping in the bouncy house, looking at the animals in the petting zoo, riding the tractor train, and looking at the craft/vendor booths...until the sun went down. It was so cold they all turned into Popsicles and we hadn't seen Santa yet. We got some hot chocolate and visited with Dane while we waited for him to arrive. They made it through seeing Santa but that was all. I was so proud of Lyndsey this year- she actually sat in Santa's lap, told him what she wanted very specifically, and gave him a big hug. Shelby was shy telling him what she wanted but she did tell him. Michael did exactly what I thought he would- since he has a thing for long hair, he grabbed a big handful of Santa's beard and pulled it down a little which made Santa laugh. Despite all that, they took a great picture which I'll post after I get it scanned. We did have a great time despite being frozen and two of the three wore themselves out and slept on the short drive home. Mikey showing off his police badge sticker from Daddy.

Bouncing away as usual!

Notice Lyndsey's face- apparently her horn fell off on the ride and she was very upset because she didn't get to honk the whole way like she was supposed to do! Notice Shelby- turned to talk to Lyndsey about the problem because she thinks she needs to know about and fix everything!

Daddy and the kids- I love this picture!

Santa finally arrived with his fire and police escort. He rode in this old truck- pretty cool just very loud.
