Hope's 4th Birthday!

Oh my! I can't believe my baby is four. Where does the time go? She is growing up way too fast. She had such a fun birthday last Tuesday. She had school that day so she took Krispy Kreme doughnuts to share with her class. That evening she wanted to go to Texas Roadhouse for dinner. (What is it with my kids and Texas Roadhouse?) Grandma and Grandpa Huntsman came, as well as the Bawdens and the Stonebrakers. After, we went back to our house for cake and ice cream and games. She had an Ariel cake since that is her favorite princess. The kids played "Don't eat Santa" and "Pin the present on Santa". (Thanks, Sis!) I hope it was a good day for her. We love you Hope!

Aime Christmas Party

The Saturday after Thanksgiving we had the annual Aime Christmas party. It is when Mary's side of the family (Chad's Mom) gets together. This year we had such a great time. I have to give a shout out to Aunt Kelly because she worked so hard to make it fun for everyone. We had lots of games, a pinata, and a nativity with all the little ones. Hallee was the narrator and sang a solo of a Christmas song. Hope was Mary and she looked so cute! She was all business, though. And, did I mention Santa showed up?

This year we spent Thanksgiving with the Huntsmans. We had such a good day. We ate way too much yummy food (of course). I think we all put on the "Thanksgiving 5". But we need our energy to shop the next day, right? The kids played pin the hat on the turkey and Thanksgiving bingo. At the end of the night we put together a gingerbread house. It was probably more mess than it was worth but I think the kids had fun.

Thanksgiving at School

The girlies both had a great time at their "Thanksgiving feasts" at school. Hallee painted her vest and Hope made a teepee out of an ice cream cone. Their schools do such cute things with them.
