Some random pictures from this month...

This year I decided to buy the gingerbread house KIT. We usually just did the graham cracker route but from now on I think the kit is the way to go. Both girls loved it (Ryan mostly b/c she got to eat ridiculous amounts of candy but...)

Ready to get started.

Lexi concentrating hard on her house.

I just LOVE her face! :)

Lexi's finished product. I didn't get a pic of Ryan with her finished house but it looked about the same as it did in the pic above. SHe wanted to eat her candy more than decorate with it.

We did get to take the kids to see Santa and Lex kept telling me what she was going to tell him once she got up there. Well by the time we got up there she REFUSED to go up! It's funny what we try to make kids do for the photo op. Honestly if Trav wasn't there I probably would have tried to make her but he was like REALLY? Just let it go. Oh well... she never has been a Santa or Easter Bunny fan! :)

Ryan started to cry and tried to get off his lap.

But he gave her a candy cane and she was good to go! :)

I'm really bummed I didn't get a better picture but Lex had a school performance this year and it was her first time performing in something like that. Trav got a pretty good video and that's more important than the pics so I guess I can live with that. They sang "Must be Santa" and she did most of the actions while watching her friends. It was adorable. I can't believe she is getting so big.
This is after her performance. She was really proud of herself! :)

Lex's gingerbread house looks better than mine! :) They are growing up so fast... Ry looks HUGE on Santa's lap!

Love the houses. Glad your girls had a fun time making them. I can't believe how big they are getting. Ryan has hair now and Lexi is in performances, where has the time gone. Oh, I love that Ryan is wearing sandals in a Christmas picture.
