Latest happenings...

Last Friday- the last day of school before winter break- the boys had Pj day to enjoy a day full of movies and parties.  Izzy didn't want to be left out so she wore Pj's to daycare also.  If only I could have worn Pj's to work, all would have been perfect.
That evening, we had our Holiday party at the Hotel.  The boys look forward to this party all year and this one was the best by far.  They had their face painted, got some balloon animals and filled up on cotton candy, snow cones and popcorn.  They did manage to eat a bite of something healthy at one point during the evening.

The boys waiting patiently for their balloon animals from the nice Elf.

Alien- I think they get the same things each year.



Santa with the beginnings of a tummy ache from all the sugar!  Look how fast Mrs. Amy is moving behind them distributing all of the toys to the kids.  (Mrs. Amy and I are the work Elves and we distribute toys to all the employee's children.) 

This is the last picture I was able to get before they starting pinging off the walls.

Then, I was feeling a little spontaneous or maybe just a bit crazy so the kids and I decided at the last minute to try and make it to Chipley for the Barfield Christmas get together (1 hour and 15 minutes away). We finally made it and I was able to fill up on oysters while the boys played and Izzy was passed amongst our family. On the way home, Santa and Rudolph passed out.

I wonder if Rudoph minded having Izzy's feet in his face the entire drive home??

Sunday, we took our annual Christmas pictures around the church Christmas tree.  I am pretty sure this is torture in the eyes of our kids but it is a must- you can't break tradition!

Aiden picked out Izzy's flower- he was a proud big brother.
