Christmas photo shoot....

About 2 weeks before Christmas I decided to have a mini photoshoot with the kids! It was loads of fun! Madi LOVES to pose and well.. Lily will do anything if the reward is Smarties!! Here are some of my favs!

I absolutely LOVE this one.. Lily was so mad at me for not giving her "enough" smarties that she just scowled for about 5 frames!!

Not sure what is happening here.. but this sums up my children for sure... Lily trying to get away.. Madi smiling like a pretty little princess... and Caleb distracted by the birds outside the window!!

Madi showing off the christmas tree barrettes I made her and Lily

christmas cookies....

So for that reason I am going to be going back a few months and doing my "christmas" posts. I use this blog as a sort of "diary/journal" for our family and can't leave christmas out!! I am hoping to be caught up this week sometime.... fingers crossed!

Gingerbread House....

i "cheaped" out this year and bought a gingerbread kit instead of making my own.. i wasn't exactly sure how it was going to go... so thought buying one would be better... Madi LOVED IT.... Lily... well... she just wanted to eat the candies!!

Sampling the cookies.. they were actually pretty good for a kit!!

All Bean wanted to do was eat the candy and icing!!

Love this pic of Madi....

Yummy cookie goodness!!

Lily... "helping" to decorate..

Madi was a "super" decorator..

Sugar Cookies...
we also attempted some sugar cookies!! i think as a mother of 2 little girls you need to be ok with a batch of "kid" cookies and a batch of "nice" cookies!! They had a fun time.. but they didn't look all that appetizing... although from the amount they ate that obviously wasn't true!!

rolling out the dough...

So excited to get started
