Christmas Eve

We had a wonderful Christmas this year.  It was so fun to watch Avery get so into it and Ella sort of got the hang of it which was enjoyable to watch too.  We have lots of pics!

Some pics before we went to Kitty & Rich's to celebrate with the family:

Our elf on the shelf, Charlie, comes back to our house every night in interesting places!

Avery putting out cookies for Santa

Sweet Ella ready to open some presents:

These cuties are ready too

And the madness begins!!!

I can only wonder what these 2 are thinking about all this :)

Seriously!!  What can she possibly crying about here...look at the look I'm giving her too ;)

Loving her new umbrella. I will not let her put it over my head in the house!

Okay, she seems to have gotten over her little tantrum.  Must continue.

Avery and Cissy trying out their rollerblades/skates 

Oh no, I don't even know what to say about this one!

Kitty opening up the shake weight she picked in our gift exchange.  I'm ready to see those ripped arms soon Kitty!

Kevin stealing my blanket...again!

Avery and I are going to have to talk about this one.  I hope she asked him for a tip!

Holiday Programs

Avery had her Christmas program last Wednesday before school let out for break.  It was such a sweet performance and it's crazy to think that it will be her last one in preschool!  We didn't get any pics of them bcuz we videotaped the whole thing but it was really cute...take my word for it or some of Avery's fans that were there - Cissy, Caiden, Nana, Papa, Darmi, Poppy & Ella.  Ella kept saying Abery, Abery throughout the performance while in between taking a break from eating, dancing and clapping.  And, I don't know what I would have done without my trusty helper, Cissy!  She just Loves Ella and is such a good babysitter already!

Last day of preschool 2011

After her performance everyone went back to the classroom for snacks and juice.  Here she is giving one of her teachers her gift.

Wait, Ella spied the's over!

Making herself comfortable in the class.  She'll be in this school for 4 years starting next fall.  I can hardly believe it!

Avery and I also went to see Cissy's X-Mas performance one night last week.  There's was so cute too and afterwards we got to go to Cissy's classroom to pick her up.  Avery loved seeing her classroom and really wanted to stay and play.  Here are the 2 cuties.

Here they are with the sweet twins

And, a quick visit with Santa
