Christmas Parade and Day

Like last year we went up to the parade on the golf cart which was awesome! We got a great parking spot and then we have seating!

Our friends came to join us which is even better!

It has been so chilly this year, we are just now getting used to dressing appropriately and the whole family now has gloves scarves and hats. Cold weather is actually not that bad with the right clothes. We have been sick for weeks so I have been inside for the most part.

The kids loved taking turns sitting on the top rack.

On the 23rd we decided to take advantage of our aquarium membership which was fun. It is always nice to do something for free. My goal is to go once a month, the girls love it.
Christmas...the pillow pet. I wonder how many of these were sold this year.
The girls got this enormous coloring cottage, a real hit. Although it is so big you can hardly get to the front door...luckily all our peeps use the back door. :)

These plasma cars are from my mom. They are pretty awesome, I can ride it too. Right now they are in the house, but I don't see that lasting long!!!

Silver Ball

It's that time of the year again! The Silver Ball was a blast. I wasn't sure if I was going to make it or not because I have been really sick but I started feeling better just in time. It is always so fun and festive to get all dressed up!

Tree Shopping

We went tree shopping on Friday, the girls have been asking to go since a week before Thanksgiving thanks to a certain relative who puts her fake tree up early. ;) It was fun, We got the biggest one on the lot and I really didn't know how big it was until they had to heave it on top of my yukon xl!
Today before school I decided that I couldn't possibly spray Abby's hair with water and send her out into 26 degree weather so I flattened it. It has never been this cold that I can remember...I always send her out with wet hair.

Forgive the cheesy smile, she had a mouthful of muffin. I think she looks so grown up with straight hair! I had to flat iron both girls hair today, I have to do Reese's new short do or it looks crazy. I can't wait for hers to be long again. All I had to do was brush it and it looked great.

Turkey Day at School

I was a volunteer for Abby's Thanksgiving feast at school a few weeks ago. The kids had the best time and the food was so good! I couldn't help but nibble off her plate.
This is her buddy Tre, they have so much fun together and apparently are not allowed to sit nect to each other in class anymore!

Hope you had a great Turkey Day too!

Fair Entry

A few months ago I made this for my sister's baby shower. I never had time to blog it because I was still stitching on it the morning of the shower! I retrieved it from her a few weeks later so I could enter it in the fair. I was very pleased with how it pleated and the stripes stayed even. It was also my first use of lace, normally I don't do fancy sewing. I prefer boutique style casual stuff, but I just loved how sweet this fabric is. I hope it gets worn lots of times! Can't wait to see her in it.

Princess Playdate

Reese had a fun playdate a couple of weeks ago, don't they look pretty?! I know she had the best time time because she loves anything dress up and fancy. She called this a Jasmine princess dress from Aladdin. Check out her cool braid crown hair will be years before we can do that again! It sure was pretty though. Glad we captured it in a picture.

Tennis Lessons

Now that cheerleading is over, Abby needed a new extra curricular activity. We chose tennis, which she can take at school. A few of her buddies wanted to take too so it worked out nicely to arrange (thanks sue!) a group lesson. Abby really likes it, it's the first sport she has done. I am glad she likes it and her friends too!

A Knock Off

Here's another outfit that I copied from Kelly's Kids. From there it would cost $84 each without the matching tights. I made it for $18 each, including the tights! I got the shirt and tights from Land's End, I am very happy with the results and the girls love the new outfits. :)

Abby's Birthday

So...where did September go?!!! Hmmm, and weren't there two month's after that? Why in the world sis I think that things would slow down when school started? Where is all this time I was supposed to have...I digress. :)

Finally, here are some pictures from Abby's birthday party. It was a pool party, which she chose over a tea party so that her boyfriends could come. It was mostly boys :). I tried to keep it as small as I could which was way more fun as it turns out. Next year will be even smaller maybe.

The Wright Girls... Reese's hair... :(

William and Abby, they are a fun pair.

The birthday girl was all smiles, everyone had a blast.

Happy Halloween, belated

We sure had a fun month of October! I have never liked Halloween, in fact last year was the first year that I let the girls dress up and go trick or treating. But, I must say, that they like it so much that it really is fun. I had a great time this year.

Kane carved this pumpkin. We liked it so much that we left it there for a few extra days...until it was hard to pick up to trash it!
We went to an awesome Halloween party held by some of the girls' friends. It was awesome, a very special treat.

At Pinewood the Kindergartners have "Super Seniors" which are their buddies throughout the year. They do fun things, especially for special occasions. This was the costume parade and that is her super senior. Apparently all of the Super Seniors were supposed to match their kindergartners and I missed the memo. Totally my fault I realize, there was a questionnaire that I filled out too quickly. It asked what they were going to be for Halloween, to which I said a cheerleader. That IS what she was for Halloween but for the parade I wanted her to be something more original. Poor Min, she does look cute though. I will know the scoop for next year with Reese, at least.
