We tried to fit in as much as we could before Christmas and having a one handed mother ha!
The girls proved themselves worthy of making cookies on their own, they really did a great job. I am slowly but surely learning to delegate, surgery helps…just sayin.
The girls look so OLD in these pics.
Speaking of old…Madeline is so cute acting like she believes in Santa with Janie! She is the master Elf mover as well.
Next up was our get together with some of our cousins…
Carly and John David are such great buddies
Then there is Goldbug ha
Remember the monkeys…and the fact that I was not happy with John David…well, they were the hit of the party of course.
Janie of course needed to perform…her subject was bananas and being bananacuted or something along those lines…she is too funny!
Kendyl got the first monkey
Janie got the second
Andie stole from Kendyl
Kendyl is just fine haha!
Gardner and Kendyl are pumped that they have the Florida weather covered…
Lilly steals from her mother. Notice everyone is afraid to steal from Janie ha!
Janie made sure she was sitting on her monkey at all times:)
That evening we had to make sure we finally fit at least on time to look at Christmas lights. All the pics of the kids did not turn out:(. We had a full car…the girls, John David, Carly, Gardner and his friend Matt. It was like a time warp!
Janie even faked sleep for me:), she is good!
And so you can truly appeciate the size of this monkey and my gratitude that Lilly took one home with her….thing is huge!
