Cousins and BFFs

Delaney Joy and Sarah Faith... I just adore these pictures of the two of them.




A visit with Santa Claus





and yes, Delaney is missing.  If you know her at all, you shouldn't be surprised!   Poor Delaney; she is afraid of her own shadow.  But her sweetness makes up for it... Santa said that he will still bring her gifts.

And now for the decorating and adorning...

Mom, can I eat this now???!!!The good stuff.
Hannah took this picture. Good job, Han! Love this picture! And this one, too...we had to get little E in on the action!

New home construction!

Today we drove out in the cold rain to buy a gingerbread house kit. The kits come with everything you need to make a beautiful, perfectly decorated house. (insert laugh here!) Of course we had to purchase seven more bags of tiny candies, to ensure that we would have enough candy for the house and to satisfy the hungry construction workers.

And here they are... bubbling over with anticipation!
We took great care in setting up the dishes of candy. And sampling them. After I mixed up the frosting, the girls had to taste that, too. Yum!!!It shouldn't surprise anyone that Bryan did the construction. Emma didn't participate, but she did watch from her chair. And she looked awfully cute doing it!We didn't realize until after we had set everything up that we would have to wait a whole hour! for the house to dry before we could decorate it. More pictures to follow later!

The magic of Christmas

Exploring is what Emma does best these days. Her current obsession is, of course, our Christmas tree. After all, who can resist the sparkly white lights, the shiny glass balls, the colorful ornaments...

This red ball kept her occupied today for a good three minutes. onto bigger and better things...
