Christmas Pictures

I usually try to take the kids Christmas pictures myself, but this year it just did not seem to be working. So since it had been a while since I had had professional pictures taken I decide to have some done. These were taken at Portrait Innovations.

Whew! I survived the weekend. Friday we had our church Christmas dinner which I was in charge of. Saturday was Christmas program practice. Sunday was the Christmas program and Brittany's birthday. Monday I had a birthday party for Brittany. I think I can relax now and enjoy the Christmas season. I still have some more shopping to do and have not started any Christmas baking~but that is the fun stuff:-}
Thanks to everyone that left a message for Brittany on her blog. She was very surprised and is already thinking like a blogger. Last night she had to take pictures of all her gifts so she could put them on her blog. She has also learned that she can use her blog to blackmail her brother into being nice to her.
Since I hate posting without pictures here are a few from Saturday night when we went downtown.

I need your help

Brittany turns 13 tomorrow. She has been asking for a blog for a long time, so I am surprising her with a blog for her birthday. I would like for her to have a lot of comments on her blog when I show it to her tomorrow. The blog is still a work in progress but you can still leave a comment, so head over there and leave her a birthday greeting.
Thanks for your help!

My Baby turned 7 yesterday!!!

It is hard to believe that my youngest is seven already. Makes me feel old!!

We just had a family party. Chris got a Playmobil Police set that he has been wanting.

One of the ways I have cut back in our budget is to make the kids birthday cakes instead of buying them. Chris wanted a snowman cake, so I made this one by using three different size bowls. I could not get the icing right for a black hat so I used chocolate graham crackers.

He got the whole head of the snow man~~but he did not eat it all at once!
