Christmas 2009

I hate our camera, so I used Sidney or Jay's all day. The result is that I still need to get the pictures, so all I have are these two. Georgia found Dan's headphones and decided to try them on.
Getting ready to open our stockings.
This Christmas was great. The girls were so excited to open their presents and they were deliriously happy about each one.

Every year my family acts out the Nativity on Christmas Eve to help us focus on Christ during the Christmas celebrations.
Here is the whole crew in our costumes. We always take a picture at the end, when everyone is in position. Dan was the narrator so he got to be the camera man with no costume. Georgia wanted to hold baby Jesus so she is sitting in Mary's (my mom) lap.Georgia was a ShepardMy beautiful girlsEmma was our Angel

My solution to keeping Emma's art

Emma loves to do art. They make lots of art at school and she makes her own art at home. This results in every parents dilemma of what art to keep. Of course Emma wants to keep everything. I am a purger and I want to keep as little as possible, but I start feeling bad. My solution...I am taking pictures of Emma with her art. This was I can look back and see what she did and how old she was, without crates of ... art. We took about 100 pictures the first day going through everything I have collected this year. These are my favorite shots.

This is an example of something I really want to keep. Look at her little finger prints! Why does it have to be so big?

Emma's Preschool Christmas Party

Emma was so excited to go to school today for her Christmas Party. Preschool Party roughly translates to sugary snack and a goody bag. It doesn't take much to motivate a 3 year old. She had to wear her "Emma's 2" birthday hat. Her teachers loved it!

I have to say I absolutely love Emma's teachers this year. I am so grateful to everyone who recommended we attend Winder First United Methodist Preschool. It has been a great fit for us and we love it there.

Georgia's first day of school

Just kidding! It was her first day at Mother's Morning out. She was so excited to wear a backpack and go to school with Emma. So cute!

Lake Lanier Nights of Lights

I really like the Lake Lanier Nights of Lights. However, the price has gotten outrageous and they haven't added any new lights in years! This will probably be our last year. Obviously the girl's favorite part was Santa. Emma loves Santa. Georgia is getting close. She loves to see Santa, but she is hesitant to let him hold her.Here are my pretty girls. Trying to get them to look in the same direction and smile at the same time is impossible.

More random pictures of my girls

Emma modeling the new outfit from Mama that is completely out of season and has caused no less than 20 getting dressed battles so far.
Georgia loves hats! Little cutie.

Dan and I were in MT for five days and we only took 2 pictures! Dan and I on the plane there.

You better not cry, you better not pout...

We started a new Christmas tradition this year. I wrapped Christmas books and put them under the tree. Every night the girls pick a present to open and that is the book we read before bed. It was really fun and gave the girls something to look forward to every day. Here is Emma under the tree carefully selecting this evening's book.
This is the winner!
