Rosy the Elf (on the Shelf)

"Rosy" our elf was at our house the morning we got back from Salado. She came down the chimney and was waiting for the girls...

We are lucky to have an elf that is more interested in the girls behaving well and not so much into making messes! She leaves sweet notes and bring small rewards for the girls...






This is the first year an Elf has come to our house but we sure can't wait for her to return next year!!

Santa, Oh How We (mostly) Love You!

Just wanted to post this year and last years Santa picture. Notice a trend going on here?

Hannah goes to the Dentist

Hannah had to go back to the dentist. Poor thing is like her Mama and has really deep molars so she had to have resin put in them to prevent cavities from forming in the deep "pockets".
Waiting and watching a movie...
They gave her some gas because her gag reflex is so short and they were working in the back of her mouth.
By the way I LOVE LOVE LOVE her expression ...
And, she got some cool shades...
Starting to feel "silly"...
Love this grin...
Ready to begin...


She did AWESOME! And got to pick TWO prizes from the treasure box this time...

Christmas Card Photo Shoot

So, not many words can describe these pictures. We wanted to go get them professionally done but, SB got the flu and was S-I-C-K!! So, I borrowed a friends camera and took them myself. I could NEVER be a photographer, especially for our family! I now know why Photoshop was invented...HA! I will just let the pictures do the talking...





Ok, so I will put this. It took SEVERAL attempts to get Hannah's "perfect" picture. She was NOT in the picture taking mood (never is when I want her to) she was in a super silly mood...




















Hayley was my little rock star, only requiring a few shots...


Next, it was the "twin" attempt...

Annnd, the "sister" shot...










Moving onto the "family" shot...

Then, Daddy and his girls...
I love this of SB looking at the twins...
Finally, we gave Hannah one last shot with a little bribery by asking her to please not be silly...











Well, there were some silly ones but NOTHING like before. We ended up getting the perfect pictures and our cards turned out just the way we wanted them too!
