Junior Company

Hannah was invited to be on a competitive dance team this year.  She does jazz, ballet and lyrical dance.  They are a cute group of girls.  They did an amazing number to some music from Planet of the Apes.  I think she's very talented!  It's been a big dedication of time (and money)! :)  We are proud of her!  Way to go Hannah!

A Christmas tree, Santa and fireworks?

It's always fun and a little challenging to decorate a new house for the holidays!  We did not have to rent a boom to put up our Christmas lights! :)  Keith just used a ladder.  I think it turned out very quaint!
 Because of the lower ceilings we had to be careful when picking out our Christmas tree too! 
 We picked the perfect size!  (And shorter trees are less expensive! Bonus!)
 Our neighbor invited us to a dinner at her church and Santa came on a fire truck!  Elle was not having it! 
 Even when he wasn't holding her she still thought he was suspicious!
 Afterwards there were firework! 
 It was amazing!  I've never watched fireworks in the winter!
 Let alone when it was snowing outside! 
Very fun, very cool!

A Snowy Day

We haven't had a lot of snow this year so when we did get some, we took advantage of it! 
 Jack and Elle love to play in the front while I shovel the driveway. Jack likes to help, he even has his own shovel!  In our old house the HOA shoveled!  I miss that!  Maybe I should just learn to use the snow blower! :)
We took Elle for a ride around the circle on this sled!  Boy that was a workout! 
We were still playing when Hannah and Nick walked home from school!
Ok we played in the snow, now melt!  I'm ready for spring!
