It's been a VERY busy month. This is what's been going on with us since last time I posted.
Lizzie got an ear infection.
Birthday pancakes as I had no cake that day.
*This is a two year old who is having a hard time just watching her sister play with her new toys. Hard concept to understand for a little one.
Bekah was a big help with the green bean casserole and the stuffing.
She also set up our "centerpiece" for the table.
She was excited to eat at the "fancy" table but....
did not find a single item to her liking and didn't take one bite. (Perhaps all that work tired her out!)
After her nap she was more than willing to take a bite of pie! :)
These were made by my friend Amanda -- check out her baking blog.
Lizzie received this tea set which Rebekah immediately took over ...
and convinced the boys to join her in her tea party.
The Party girl with my Goddaughter ... seems just yesterday we were celebrating her first birthday!
The night before I made her banner - good thing I rolled it out to check it - had done the whole thing backwards ... had to take it apart and redo it.
She kept closing her eyes so I told her "Big eyes" - this is what I got...big eyes! :)
Her big Minnie Mouse balloon - she certainly had Big eyes when we brought this out!
A big cupcake for the birthday girl!
Christmas is not primarily a celebration of human life, although each human life is valuable; not primarily a celebration of peace and love, although peace and love are noble. The center and circumference of Christmas should be the celebration of the birth of our Lord: “I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord” (Luke 2:10-11).
