Thankful Thursday

I love that I have such a bossy, in control, it's my way only-type of 5 year old.  Because come time to do Kacey's homework, Kylie's hovering over her -pretending she's the teacher- saying, "Now do a straight line, hold the pencil like this, good... color it red, no no not like that... do it this way.  Now that's the letter J.  Go here, write your name..."  I'm thinking this is great.  In years to come, I can help Kyile with her homework, she can help Kacey and we'll do the trickle down effect.  TEAMWORK!  It's fabulous!  :)

Catching Up!

Sunday Afternoon Picture

Three little munchkins!

Saturday night was St. Nicholas Day, where we put out our shoes and we're given a little surprise to let us know how we've been doing all year.  Traditionally, it's supposed to be fruit and nuts.

But we settle for chocolate and dvds!

Then Saturday morning was the pancake breakfast at school.  Santa was there :)

I missed all this because I was volunteering.  But I was very proud of Matthew... I had to get there early to set up and he got all 3 girls ready to come later on.  He got everyone dressed (same outfits), did their hair, all had matching bows (matching eachother and matching their outfits), and he used hairspray!  How awesome is that?!?!

The best part was when Kylie said that they didn't brush their teeth.  He felt the pressure to make sure they were cute and matching, with good "hair-sprayed" hair... but he forgot the teeth!  It's rough to be Mom :)  But I was still very proud of his efforts, Kacey's curls can be difficult and he did all the steps.
Me-Tate-Jodi-Rochelle volunteering, it was a fun morning!
