2 posts in 1

POST #1: I have been meaning to post some recent pictures/events, but as you all know, this time of year is so dang busy! So, you get to read 2 posts for the price of 1 today! How lucky ae you?

The first one is of the 3 of us (well, really 4 of us, but you can't quite yet SEE the 4th one...uh, anyway)...getting our Christmas tree lat weekend. Breanna was really excited to pick out the tree this year. She ran this way and that, begging to carry the saw, and finally LAYING on the ground with her daddy to cut it down. Here are some pictures from that.

After we got the tree home, it was time to decorate! We let Bree decorate the tree however she wanted...until she went to bed, then I rearranged most of the ornaments...LOL

POST #2: Today was Bree's Christmas party and "concert" at the daycare. Brian and I went to the daycare this afternoon to watch the kiddos perform their 3 Christmas songs they have been practicing the past few weeks. They actually ALL sang, ALL together, and they ALL knew ALL the words! After they sang their songs, Gloria, the daycare/preschool teacher handed out gifts she had bought each of the kids. She has done this the past 4 years we have been there! She gets it right every time...she knows these kids so well and knows just what they want! You should have seen the look on Bree's face when she opened hers...she was sooo excited! AFter they all opened a present from Gloria, they each exchanged a present between all the kids (they had all drawn names a few weeks ago). Here are some pictures of their singing and present time.

Bree all ready to go to her party! (in her "beautiful dress")

Stay tuned because today is her ballet Christmas performance! Also, cookie making day with Bree, mommy, granny, and great-granny...

"THE GIRL PART" (Kind of hard to see, but the more times you look at it, it gets easier to see. Imagine she is laying infront of you, ready for you to change her diaper. Her legs are both coming down facing you,with her pelvis and cute little butt at the top....without any boy parts).

Santa's visit

This was Breanna's first year sitting n Santa's lap. I know this is her 4th Christmas, but I was not about to spend the $20 for a crying girl in a picture these past 3 years. This year, it's all she could talk about. The Olympia Flight Museum in Tumwater had a "Santa arrival" today, where he actually arrived in a helicopter (or as Bree calls it, a "kele-hopter"). Once he arrived, he handed out candy canes to all the little girls and boys. Then we went inside (thankfully, because it was only about 35 degrees outside!), and stood in line to take pictures with Santa. I told Bree that when Santa asks her what she wants for Christmas, she needs to be sure to speak up, otherwise he won't be able to hear her. I'm not sure if she actually told him you can tell by the picture where she has her finger in her mouth (shyness). But, she told Brian and I that she did tell him. She is wanting everything that she sees on TV "Ooo mommy, want that on my Christmas list." Her list is so long now, that I have started telling her she needs to put it on her Birthday list, consdiering her birthday isn't even 2 months after Christmas! She wants this doll called a "Woopsie-Do", it actually comes with food to feed it and you put DISPOSABLE diapers on it, and it says, "Woopsie-do, I made a stinky"...oh, boy, what will they come up with next?? Anyway, enjoy the pictures of Breannas first encounter with Santa.

Punkin' Patch

We took a family trip to the Schilter Family Pumpkin Patch in Nisqually. We had a great time. They have a great set-up there...tons of stuff for the kiddos to do. Here are some pics...Bree ASKED me "here mom, let me sit on this pumpkin, and you take my picture, just like last year."

Bree searching for just the right one...she picked two.

All ready for the train ride!

Dad and Bree on the hay ride...can you tell he just loves having his picture taken...LOL

It's official! Breanna will soon (in 7 more loooong months) be a BIG SISTER!! I am 8 weeks and 3 days as of today. I actually went into the doctors office today thinking I was 9 weeks 3 days, but when the doctor did the ultrasound she said "well, looks like 8 weeks 3 that's a due date of May 3rd." I said "huh? I'm a week LESS than I thought?" Great, an entire week longer to go! I have been feeling okay as of yesterday...that morning sickness is a total drag. So, here's to 7 more months! I will keep you posted with updated pics!

splash park

With all of this hot hot weather we have been having, we have had a hard time finding an outdoor water park that Bree could play at. Until last Friday, when a co-worker of mine, who has a 2-year-old grandson, told me about a "splash park" in Chehalis. It is at their community center right off the freeway. It was great! The splash park is free and the pool is only $3 per person. Bree "splashed" in the park for a while, then all three of us jumped in the pool. Bree has only done swim lessons once (last summer), so we weren't real sure on how she would do in the pool. She LOVED it! After only about 20 minutes, she was jumping off the edge into our arms. I didn't get any pics of her in the pool, but here are some from the splash park. I think we are headed there again this weekend.

Last week was lakefair. Corndogs, strawberry short cake, cotton candy, shaved ice. Last week we took Bree to Lakefair a few times. We were quite surprised, actually, at how many of the rides she went on. She had an absolute blast! Here are some pictures from Lakefair.

Okay, so she wasn't a big fan of the roller coaster afterall, but at least she tried it.
