While Kendra and Jeremy went to the Carribean for a week, we got to have Reagan's BFF Cassidee here! It was so great.... they played and played and played. Complete 4 year old heaven around here. We did make a couple of outings (zoo, movies, etc), but mostly just hung out. And I only have pictures on my camera from here, so that is what gets posted.
Here is our first morning together, sweet girls having a little conversation over muffin mix.
Sorry Kendra, but they are mostly unclothed in these pics. Because they changed outfits probably 25 times a day! But I promise they did wear actual clothes.
Breakfast Tea Party.
See?!?! 4 Year Old heaven. Gorgeous Princesses!!
The girls painted Dora posters for decorations at Brooklyn's Dora party. We put them up somewhere to dry then forgot about them. Thankfully, the girls never remembered. But they were cute!
Reagan "reading" the book to Cass.
My little helpers decorating the Christmas tree.
We have about 12 pictures just like this.... Cass asked to have her pic taken with almost every ornament. :)
Mommy with the tiniest helper. :)
It was a fun night.... Veggie Tales Christmas movie, hot chocolate, and tree decorating. FUN times.
The movie was sometimes distracting...
This was their other activity of the evening... jumping off the arm of the couch (which served as their stepladder) into the pink chair. I love this one in particular because you can see the spots where the ornaments were hung... only reachable spots. They let me redistribute them a bit later. :)
A different night... popcorn and movie!!!
More Dora art..... and more happiness!!!
We had just a small family party for Brooklyn's birthday. Mom and Dad were able to come in for the weekend... here's a "happy to see you" kiss for Grandmommy. LOVE it.
I was rushed on this cake, and it was NOT my best work. Sorry, Brookie. But still yummy, and she recognized Dora and squealed, so all is well.
Happy boy, Jonathan David!!! He was doing LOTS of smiling in Aunt Mary's lap.
Another happy boy, Nathaniel!!
Still another, James Austin!
Reagan and her sweet friend/cousin Melissa. Melissa is also the "principal" at Reagan's school, so it is nice to be good friends. :)
Why does Brook NEVER seem to smile when I want her to for the camera?!?!?
Love this one though... this was the look we got while she was being sung to. Sweet girl!
Remember last year when cake was her first real food?!? Yeah, we're pros now.
Big Kid's table.
PRESENTS! Brook definitely had some help.
Play cell phone = hit.
Sweet girl just LOVED all her new things. Sat there with me for quite some time and just played. It was awesome.
Then sat even longer and played Weebles with Granddaddy.
When the covers off of the pink chairs had to be washed, the girls built a giant bed with the foam parts. PERFECT place to play the fishy game, don't you think?!
The morning Cass had to leave, the same morning of singing in church. This was ALMOST the Christmas card pic, but got booted. I do love it though! Should have edited it some before posting, but again, no time for such things!! Gotta catch up!
December has been so much fun... I'm officially in post-holiday blues. All the pictures are making me happy though!
