We went with our friends to Brookside Gardens for the first time. They have a light and train show. The really cool part of the experience is that you walk to see the lights instead of driving. The girls had a great time and loved all the lights and trains!
The girls had a great Christmas despite the fact that all three were at urgent care Christmas Eve with ear infections. They had so much fun opening gifts Christmas morning but they were so different. Brooke had her presents open in about five minutes, Brynn loved each gift she opened and wanted to talk about each one, Lexi opened her gifts slowly removed all paper and tape from her area and then put her gifts in a perfect pile that she watched over! Hannah just loved everything and was so super excited all day!
The girls have loved all of the holiday activities that we have been attending. We went to a story time with Santa in our neighborhood. All the kids came in their pj's and the girls all got their picture taken with Santa. This was a huge accomplishment for Brynn!
Brynn's favorite part of the night was her blue candy-cane.
Hannah and I went to see Frosty with her brownie troop.
Santa came through our neighborhood on a firetruck last weekend. All four girls were very excited to see Santa on the truck. It was so cold it was hard to wait outside. When we finally heard the siren and opened our front door Santa was driving away. Then the tears started because they were so excited and had been waiting patiently all afternoon. Thanks to Michelle and Chad who let us invade their house and wait for Santa since he had not made it there yet!
I have not been keeping up with the blog, life as been so busy! The girls all four are doing great in school and love going each day! We have been trying to get ready for Christmas. My mom and I took the girls for a photo session for a Christmas card picture. It was interesting and so hard to get a good picture of all four of them together. The good news is that I got one with all four of them in the photo and they are all four looking at the camera. I don't know if I would call it great but its checked off the list. They all loved decorating the Christmas tree and the house.
We also had a visit from Ms. Rachel who has been away at grad school. The girls love when she visits because it means many games of hide and seek!
