Brooke is growing fast. For Christmas she got this playmat and loves it (of course now she is rolling off it all the time).
Also for Christmas her Aunt Katie got her this fluffy pink baby. She loves it also. It is so soft and chewable.
Today I asked Abi to take a picture of me and Brooke together, by the time we got the camera zoomed in Brooke didn't want to take it the way I wanted, but we got this cute one.

I can't believe how fast she is growing up. Getting a personality of her own and loving all the attention she can get!

Abi's 3rd lost tooth!

It has been 1 1/2 years since Abi lost her first two teeth. Not long ago she told me that she had a loose tooth and I didn't think it felt that loose. The next day as I picked her up from school she said that it had bled and that it hurt a lot. By that night she asked me to pull it and out it came. I couldn't find the tooth pillow that I had made, so I went ahead and made another one so that she could get it under her pillow for the tooth fairy. She was so excited!

Christmas Program

On the day of the program I realized that I didn't have the battery on the video camera charged so I took the camera. Here are a couple of the videos I got before the memory card was full. It was a really good program and Abi and Lauren did great! Next time I will be more prepared to record!
(I tried to upload more than this, but they must have been too big because they wouldn't load)

Moving and Fountainhead

Brooke is starting to move a little more every day and this is how I found her the other day when I went to wake her up so we could take the older girls to school.
Brooke was born with a good amount of hair. I don't know why I didn't think about putting a ponytail (David calls it a fountainhead) sooner, but someone mentioned it and here is the first time that I put it up.

This year I decided to get matching stockings for the girls and to get their names put on them. I waited kind of long, but was able to find someone to get them done by Christmas and for a good price. I really like the way they turned out. I also found the perfect place to put them this year. David suggested a picture of a fire to be on the tv for the picture.

Parade of Lights

As part of the girl scouts Abi and Lauren got to ride on a float in the parade of lights. This isn't the best picture, but it is the only one I was able to get. Also included is a couple pictures of the float.

I forgot to put up the picture of the girls with Santa. We took this picture the same night as the Polar Express. Reagan didn't want anything to do with Santa until she realized that he gave a candycane after they were done. She then tolerated it so that she could get that.

Princess Tea Party

I am still trying to catch up, in November after the Polar Express, I took Abi and Lauren to a Princess Tea Party. It was suggested that the girls wear princess dressses and thanks to my friend Emily lending us one (and that Lauren fit Abi's old flower girl dress) we were set.

Before we left

The decorations
We took pictures of each other
They did hair and makeup

They got glitter tattoos (I forgot to take a picture of Abi's until days later)
On our way out we took pictures at a sign David's company made and some ice sculptures

The tickets also came with the tiarra's and gift bags. They also got a small photo shoot with a free picture. There were lots of happy little princesses there, but I know that my two had a wonderful time!
