Gearing up for Christmas

Like everyone else, we've been super busy getting ready for Christmas.  Here are some pictures from the past couple of weeks to get my blog caught up!

We've been dressing festively...

...and doing art projects to decorate the house...

...and going to the park during the brief spells of decent weather...

...and caroling...

...and dressing in our very best for the Sunday before Christmas.

Now, we are really, really, really ready for Christmas! That pretty much sums up everything!

Happiness is...

...throwing portion control to the wind and eating a vat of raisins.

Yes, that is a whole canister of raisins. She carried it around for about 45 minutes munching the entire time.

Happiness, however, is not changing the diaper that came several hour later.

A Thank You Note

Dear Mamm,

Thank you for the Christmas cut-out cookies. Best - Afternoon - Snack - Ever!!!

Shepherd and Lydia

After a wonderful week in Illinois with BJ's family, me and the kids are taking it pretty easy this week.  The one major outing we've had is going to get Shepherd's hair cut this afternoon.  I decided to get him BJ's haircut: short and spiky.  As you can see, he looks sort of adorable.

Lydia's hair is also pretty cute.  She's rocking the side pony tail. It must just be a good hair day in the Gensic household!
