Checking In!

I know it's been a little while since my last post, again! But with the Holidays and all of Emma's festivities, it becomes hard to remember everything! {How do people do it with more than one child?!} 

Since my last post, Howard and I have celebrated our three year wedding anniversary {10 together, though}! During that day, I was at my moms wrapping Em's presents. When I got home, I opened the door to a most pleasant surprise! Howard and Em had cleaned the whole house! Now, that may not sound like much to some people, but to me...I LOVED IT!

Also, Emma had her Pre-K Christmas Program - SO CUTE! There is nothing more precious than witnessing a room full of 4 and 5 year old's singing {or shall I say yelling!} Christmas songs at the top of their lungs! Each child also had their own special line, a solo moment if you will! Em's line was: "...bringing gifts they came to see..." I was a little worried that she may get shy in front of the audience, but she did PERFECT! I was, and AM, so proud!!

We also went to visit Santa! Emma gave him her Christmas list, in the form of a letter...TOO CUTE! She has never been the kid who has been afraid of Santa. She has always loved him! Been more than Happy to sit with him, talk and smile pretty for the camera! Thank goodness for that!

Also, my not-s0-baby-girls birthday is coming up in a mere four weeks! SHE. WILL. BE. FIVE! I am having a little bit of difficulty coming to this realization. Do you know what five means?! Kindergarten! Aahh! What happened to my precious, tiny baby? The one who didn't know how to talk back? The one that would take naps on a regular basis? I know where she is - here with me. Only almost all grown up!

With the Holiday Season in full swing, we have definitely been feeling the Spirit this year! Have you? It comes and goes so quickly...I wish it could stick around a little while longer. The silver-lining to this, however, is that it WILL be back again in one year! 


  1. What a cutie! 5 years old?! time flies. Merry Christmas, enjoy it and don't worry about blogging ;)
