And we are so blessed to be able to spend it with friends and family and very fortunate and grateful to be able to have presents under our tree!

holiday season 2015

I didn't get these up before Christmas, but here are bits and pieces of what our fun (and busy) December looked like.

our elves "holly" & "jolly" arrived! trouble makers!
skye tried to put them in drawers or under her pillow at bedtime so they wouldn't get into trouble as much ;-)
but she was so excited in the morning to go see what they had gotten into

our selfie at the walk-in clinic -
for a non-stop hacking cough for about 2 months now
our first year with a real tree -
that skye picked out. The kids were really excited.

2nd annual breakfast with Santa at the Smith's house -
Skye, Emily & Sofia waiting in anticipation
can't get off Santa's knee fast enough
a little shy, but not too bad

skye practicing her numbers.
she kept saying it was taking "too long" for
Christmas to get here.
ugly sweater party!

LOVE how my decoupage ornaments turned out

Airdrie festival of lights - with friends.
A little bit chilly, but not too bad. The kids LOVED it and didn't want to go home at 9pm.
choo choo train ride around the lights

christmas dinner and early presents - fun!  
skye & mommy crafting "snowman" jars for treats
turned out so cute!
