Keira and I went to see the Nutcracker Ballet yesterday. She loved it. She sat on my lap captivated the whole time. " I like those dancing girls!" She told me. It was a great show and I see many more Nutcrackers in our future. Despite leaving my camera right by my purse I forgot both ... it will be nice to have my brain back when this baby arrives. I am so forgetful lately!! 94 days till my due date.......


We finally got about 9 inches of the real stuff! The past few days though its been brutally windy. Keira didn't seem to mind and still wanted to play outside but Israel was not a fan of the wind. It actually knocked him over a few times! He also can't walk very well in a snowsuit and boots and after falling on his face right into the snow he wanted nothing to do with it. But today it was in the 30's and minimal wind so outside we went. No snow pants for Israel and he had a blast. Notice Keira's thin cotton dress and tights! Crazy kid!!!

GIngerbread houses

Lots of fun as always. This is the first year Keira was big enough to stay up late and help decorate them. She did a great job.

12-22 2010- First snow!!

First snowfall was so late this year! Kids had a blast walking around in the snow and being pulled on the sled. Our Christmas company is here too. Anna ( in the black jacket) from Armenia and Julia from Ukraine. Both are in the states on scholarships at Vanderbilt University in TN.
Do you like Israel's pink gloves???? :o)

Keeping Busy

I made homemade play dough for the first time ever so Isarel could play with it. He usually eats a decent chunk of it so I feel better knowing he wasn't eating a ton of artificial dye. But making it yourself is easy but MESSY. Def easier to buy it. I also tried to make it pink with raspberry juice but apparently it takes a ton of natural dye to dye a big ball of play dough. Either way it keep the kids busy for a good 10 min. Mission accomplished. :o)

Israel and his buddy Emily get messy with play dough.

This is what happens when I forget to close the pantry. Israel always finds his way to the snacks. You would think I didn't feed the kid! He gets Keira involved. I was doing the dishes and next thing I know they are both sitting on the floor chowing down.

K's first ballet recital

K is second from L
Here and the rest of the pics she is third from the Left.

Keira had a fabulous time dancing in her first ballet recital. It was adorable. She loved every min of it and didn't want to take off her costume after it was over. " Can I go on the stage and dance again???" She asked me over and over!

We put it back on the market. Different agency and different realtor. Hope for some results this time. We had a showing last week and an open house tomorrow. We figured if we were going to move anyways we might as well do it before baby number 3 arrives as we figure it will be easier.
