The Dentist

I finally got my act together and took Kate to the dentist. When I told her she was going she got a little nervous, but once we got there she did awesome!!! She loved picking out a blue penguin toothbrush and thought the suction straw was funny! So proud of her for such a great appointment.

Tree Decorating

We had plans on decorating our tree Sunday night, but Bryn got a bug and was sick all day:(.  So we decided to wait til Monday night when Parker got home from work.  The girls were so excited to decorate the tree.  I pulled out their felt trees which held them over for a little bit longer...




Monday night, we gave them their new Christmas PJs and it was time to decorate THEIR tree!





The final product with 2 very tired girls...


Tonight, the girls got to help us finish our "big" tree...



Our first (and maybe last) live tree...
 Our "socks" as Kate calls them...

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

Walls Family Tree Farm

On the way back from Shreveport we stopped in Terrell, TX at Walls Family Tree Farm to pick out and cut down our Christmas tree. 
 
Hayride out to the trees...with popcorn!





Kate found a "Kate-sized" tree...

Brynlee wanted a little one...

Our tree before we cut it down...

Headed back to Frisco... 

O (Felt) Christmas Tree

JuJu saw this idea on Pinterest and thought the girls would love it.  So Friday, Karen and I made Felt Christmas trees for each of the girls.  When they woke up from their naps, they loved decorating their own trees...
 


Hall of Trees...Kate was the first one up!

Thanks JuJu for the fun project!

Thanksgiving Day

We spent Thanksgiving in Shreveport with my family.  For Thanksgiving lunch, we went over to my aunt and uncle's house in East Texas.  The girls loved running around playing outside and looking at the cows.  Here are a few pictures from our day!

Ready to go...

Flower pot fun!

Checking out the cows...


 
The girls loved their "country" Thanksgiving!!!

Choir Concert Video



Just a little video of Kate's concert!

Kate's Choir Concert

Kate has been in the 3 year old choir this year (semester) at church. She has liked going but whenever I asked her what they sing, she would say "I don't know."  I asked her if she sang one night when we were leaving and her response was, "I was too busy to sing."  So, when I found out that she was having a choir concert, my expectations were LOW! 
 
Wednesday night was the big night and she did GREAT!  She stood up on the stage and sang all the songs...one or two times she was the LOUDEST one in the room!  She even did some of the motions.  It was super cute!  Here are a few pictures from the concert.  And yes, that is her winter coat that she refused to take off because "it's really cold outside."
 




I will try to post some videos too...

Dallas Arboretum

We spent the morning at the Arboretum looking at the pumpkins.  The weather was perfect!  The girls loved running around and looking at the pumpkins...
 






 CC and the girls...





 In Cinderella's carriage...








This was definitely the highlight for the girls.  Thankfully there was no one else around and they got to play in here for about 15 minutes...
 My little pumpkins, who weren't really cooperating at the moment...






 We went by to see some of the Chihuly exhibit too!
