A Novel ~ Day 316

My little girl loves to read. She was fascinated with her aunt Lynnie's library book when she was here visiting. She kept wanting to "go to bed" and read it. She is gonna be a book worm like her mom, and possibly a little prodigy too!

Right after Santa came!
Her eyes lit up when she saw her new play kitchen!
She is wearing her new Dora Christmas PJ's.

Trying on her new play high heels.

Delighted by her new baby doll from her brother Brenden.

Reaching deep into her stocking!

Our first complete family shot. Kensi didn't want to put down her harmonica.

A photo with the grandparents. Don't they look proud?

Checking out and loving her new "big girl" bedding. She thinks it's "beautiful!"

Christmas Eve ~ Day 309

Tonight was a very special night. Chad and I took our children to their very first Christmas Eve service. It was so wonderful and Kensington was better behaved than either of us could've hoped. We even let her hold Daddy's candle during the song "Silent Night". We got many comments about how great she did and how grown up she was. There were many comments about her baby brother too. Today he is just 2 weeks old! As we get the hang of getting out of the house with a newborn, I would like us to go to church more often. I really enjoyed it!

Christmas Cookies ~ Day 308

Tonight we made Christmas cookies. I had some food coloring left over from Kensi's birthday cake, and although the colors weren't very seasonal, we still had a lot of fun!

"Let me try it!" she said.

Working intently on the sprinkles.

Very proud of herself!

Candy ~ Day 307

My girl has a new vice...

Candy! It's a new vice for me too as I am using it too much as a bargaining tool. What else is a tired mom to do?
