Let it Snow!

 Our elf continues to make the kids, mostly Leah smile each and every morning.

 Leah and Maya had their second annual baking day this past Saturday. They baked and hung out for over 3 hours and then dropped treats off for Judi. It was the BEST way to spend the day.

 I drove down to Lowville on Sunday morning to visit with Gram and Gramp since I hadn't seen them since Thanksgiving. They love the company and the help. I brought them some holiday popcorn and they dug into it instantly.
 This is the funniest picture. Gram is waiting for Gramp to give her some of his special chocolates. They eat their weight in candy weekly and it is SO funny.
 Sunday afternoon the kids went skiing. Seth had tons of buddies up their and Leah found a couple of friends. I didn't ski this time around, but plan to very soon. Leah is very proud of herself that she can go on the lift without any adult help now.

 Sunday night we finished up the weekend with Gingerbread House Wars. The kids love to "compete" against each other to see who is the most creative. They both turned out amazing and they had tons of fun doing it.

Two weeks until Christmas and more snow heading our way.

Welcome December and All that it Entails

 Our elf made his appearance a couple of days early due to overwhelming peer pressure. He flew right into our tree with a crash landing.
 He also made a big mess in the bathroom.
 Friday night we went to the Watertown Christmas Parade as we do yearly. It was the perfect night to be outside and the parade was great.

 Saturday was the Sugar Plum Ball. Sommer was kind enough to come over again and do Leah's hair. It looked so pretty and we all loved it.

 Leah with her buddies, Alex and Grace.

 The moms and sons decided to go bowling while the Dads and daughters were out dancing it up. We had a great time.

 On Sunday Seth invited some buddies, plus his cousin Luke over to play and they ran around for over two hours. It was amazing.
This morning our elf was back at his old tricks again. Always making a mess of our house.

Thanksgiving Week

My favorite week did not disappoint. We had the VERY best week full of family, friends and food.
 Tuesday  night I met some friends from work out for dinner and much needed chit chat.
 Uncle J came home and we spent tons of time with him.
 We participated in the annual Turkey Run and Seth came in first place with a crazy low time. That boy loves competition.
 Annual Sherman Picture
 Soccer and Basketball Buddies
 Leah walked with Poppy, but decided to run the last bit on her own. Way to go Bean.

 Such a wonderful holiday tradition.
 He was pretty proud of himself.
 Thanksgiving at our house ran extra smooth this year and we enjoyed every second of it.

 So grateful that Gram and Gramp could join us.
 Gramp doesn't understand Snap Chat, but lets me do it anyhow.

 The day after Thanksgiving we played some family Hide & Seek. Roland had a prime hiding spot, but was found rather quickly.
 That evening we continued the fun and games with take out food and all sorts of games.

 On Saturday we all went to see Wonder. It was AMAZING.

 Saturday evening we managed to throw together an impromptu friends night. We played Rock Band and had so many laughs.

 Our elf returned on Tuesday and the kids were thrilled.

 Today, our elf was rather naughty and made a mess of the bathroom. HA.
Hope you're having a wonderful week.
