The Week in Review...

From Blogger Pictures

This weekend was a whirlwind for us... it was Ariana's annual holiday dance spectacular. It is a really cute show which all of the local nursing homes seem to flock to. But it is very hectic for us. She has dress rehearsal Friday after school, which put us home after 9 o'clock. And then on Saturday I went in to work at 7, went home by 11 to get her ready for her first show of the day. We headed off to the theater and were straight out for the rest of the day for her 2 shows.

Sunday I went to work at 7 again and then repeated the whole process over. Although she only had one show on Sunday, so we were home by 4. We then were able to get more holiday decorations up, make some cookies and Colb got Acaidia's crib put together upstairs (poor baby was literally outgrowing the bassinet).

On Friday night, as Ariana and I drove up our road, we saw that the neighbors who set up the spectacular Christmas lighting show had turned the lights on. When we got home, I grabbed Annika in her cozy pj's and loaded her in the car. When we parked in front of the house, she squealed with delight as she peered out the window. "Look, Mommy, a train... Santa... a helicopter... can we go in there???"

This place is so fun... they must have at least one full acre of holiday light display. As you drive by, there are always at least 2 or 3 cars parked with little faces pressed against the windows... it is one of my favorite parts of the holidays.

I started Acadia on cereal this week... my baby is growing up!!! Also, Annika has taken to playing games on the laptop. I hate seeing all of these milestones pass... it just means my babies are getting older.
