1st party of the season!

We had our first Christmas party of the season last night! We celebrated our 3rd daycare Christmas party and Charli had a great time as always! Charli seemed to look like a little dolly in her dress and I am not sure if it was the combination of her outfit or just her personality...but she seemed so grown up (and pretty DARN cute!)

The kids all get along so well, Lynn does such am amazing job with these kids -- she is amazing and we are SO thankful for her. Among our blessings she is certainly on the TOP!! (and Lonnie too!!)

I started and finished our Christmas decorating around the house today!! Actually I got started early this morning but took a break to run errands and had a hard time getting started again! But - Grandma and Grandpa came down to visit and I got to decorate with my mom which was fun...I don't think I had ever done that before! It was nice! And, in the living room Charli and Charlie (Grandpa) danced to Charli's dancing snowman! They BOTH had a good time! Charli loves her Grandma's and Grandpa's so much - we love when they visit!

I will let you get to the pictures...I know that is why you are here :-) (it's okay! ha ha )

this would be her SUPER-STAR pose I guess!!
and the not so "super-star" pose :-)

where was this picture when I needed a shot for the Christmas card?! The only way I could get her to smile all night was to say "smile for Grandpa"!

the gang (minus a sad baby Sadie who was with her daddy!)

THIS is how much the kids love each other!! SO CUTE!

Liam LOVED his book from Charli!!!!

the gangs all here!!

mmmm, cookies!!

Charli looks adorable! That is so great that her daycare provider has a Christmas party for the kids. Great idea ~ then you all get to know each other. Glad you guys had a fun weekend!

Look the daycare party was a hit for everyone! I would have to say she is starting to act more like her Mommy in front of the camera! Can't wait for this weekend and Christmas to have the kids together again --- they have soooo much fun together, ( I think the big kids do too!)

Charli gets cuter and cuter by the day...enjoy all of the "specials" the seasons brings.

Take care of each other.
