Playing in the snow!

It felt like we played in the snow every single day this past winter! We had a very snowy couple of months. We normally went out during Connor's nap time because he would only last 2 or 3 minutes in the snow haha.

We also made a trip down to the ice castles. The kids loved it!


We took the kids to go see Moana. Connor couldn't have been happier to watch a movie and eat treats!

Claire was also a fan of the treats and movie. :)

The kids were given a New Zealand Bedtime Stories book from a family friend. The story about Maui was in the book, so the kids were really excited to hear another story about Maui!

And the whole Moana sound track has been on repeat at our house ever since. ;)

Christmas Dance Recital

Claire did great at the Christmas dance recital! Their dance was "Little Saint Nick" by the Beach Boys. 

She loves getting all dressed up and "fancy."

Connor loves watching the recitals. He stays entertained on Nana and Papa's laps the whole time.

Claire goes to the same studio as some of her best friends, so we had to snag a picture.

Miss Cheryl has been Claire's dance teacher for a couple years.

After the recital, we took the kids to get some ice cream!

Claire went to bed that night and still looked like a complete princess. :)

And she got a pretty hair style the next day too.

The Rest of November

In November, Connor started self entertaining for small stretches at a time. He was happy for about ten minutes at a time as long as he had Claire and legos right next to him.

We play with legos A LOT in this house!

Connor doesn't eat much. So when he asked if he could eat pomegranates on my white bed, I let him. haha

I tried out curlers on Claire's hair to see if they would work for her dance recital in December.

It turned out really cute!

Connor loves PJ Masks!

Claire and I got matching skirts. They're so cute!

Claire and Connor each got a book with a matching stuffed animal and Pajamas from Nana and Papa Preece. They love them!

Sunday best. These kids are cute!

After Thanksgiving, we decorated the Christmas trees. The kids got to do the little one all by themselves!

Goofy Kids!

Connor demanded that I take a picture of him wearing his slippers before I get him down from breakfast.

Connor squeezed his apple juice box until in exploded. He thought it was hilarious.

Connor got into the hair gel and "helped" me do his hair. He was really sticky for a while! haha

The kids gave each other rides in the big tupperware while mom cooked.

Connor could actually push Claire around. I was impressed!

Claire was sitting on the ground and Connor thought she wanted to give him a horsey ride.

Playing in the basement with cousin!

They each picked out a vehicle to drive around.

The kids love playing "Rainbow Hose" in the backyard. They try to run under the water without getting wet.

Connor using a miniature garbage can as a hat.

Falling off the couch on purpose!
