Jingle All The Way…

This past Saturday Meggers had her first piano recital! 

When we first arrived we were handed a program and Meghan quickly realized she would be third to play!

She was so nervous and so excited all at the same time! 

Meg scanned the crowd looking for her piano teacher and finally took a deep breath once she saw her walk in.

When it was her turn to go up I could feel my eyes starting to well up, but I bit my lip to keep it together.

She did such a fantastic job!

 Her dad and I both gave her big hugs and told her how proud we were of her.

Her teacher gave her a big hug and told her she did great too and for the rest of the night  she was grinning from ear to ear!

All I want for Chirstmas…

We’ve been busy the last few weeks putting up the Christmas tree…

and decorating the house a little bit for Christmas!

We’ve also been doing a little baking…

making ornaments…

 donating gently played with toys and visiting Santa!

I think it’s really easy to get wrapped up in the commercial idea of Christmas, but this year we’ve decided not to stress over presents, I mean of course we’ll make sure Moo has a few things to open on Christmas morning, but we also want to enjoy the simple things like being with family and friends, everything else is just cake!

So this week Meggers and I picked Mariah Carey and Justin Bieber (hey it’s Meg she loves the Biebster what can I say?) singing All I Want For Christmas!

Winter Wonderland

This past Saturday my hubby took Moo to the mall to visit Santa!

They were pleasantly surprised when they arrived to find a cute Winter Wonderland set up in the center of the mall.

Meg got to see how her hand measured up to a polar bears…

and she got to play in the snow!

Of course her favorite part was reciting her entire Christmas list while sitting on Santa’s lap!

So todays music pick  is for Meg and it’s Winter Wonderland by Jason Mraz.

 

Snapshot Sunday – Hamming it up on Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving turned out really great this year!

Well…

 Minus the big fat cold that decided to grace me with its presence! 

Even though I was feeling a tad under the weather I still managed to ham it up a bit for the camera!

Me no feel so well! 

Ooo a photo-op!

Time to pose a bit ’cause that’s how I roll!

Go on giz a kiss!

We even managed to get a cute family photo in front of the tree!

Wait…

I can’t see the tree! 

Yes… we are THAT tall! *Grin*

*Retake*

Now that’s much better!
