We had a great month filled with lots of friends, family, food,  Christmas lights, Honey Bear, Christmas parties, warm days, cold days, rainy days,  family gatherings, Christmas cards, programs, church, Christmas Cheer, birthdays, karoake and so many more wonderful holiday memories.

Happy New Year!

He's Back!

Nocchio has diabetes, who knew?

 Lydia loved it, but she wanted that shot out of his arm immediately.

Dantz is not really buying the whole elf reports to Santa business. She told me that he wasn't real because his eyes do not blink. Then, a couple of mornings later she said, I know Daddy moves him somewhere, every night. She's a stinker. And for the record, Daddy has yet to move him. :)

He's a cute, little fella though. The eyes kinda creep me out, a little bit. (especially when it's 11pm and I realize that I haven't moved him, and everyone is snoozing, but me and mr creepy eyes)

It is fun for them and so cute to watch them look for him in the mornings.

Gotta go move him....

Merry Christmas! Be back soon.

Dantz had a quick Thanksgiving program and party at school this week. They were all precious, little indians.

After school, Lydia had to be an indian too, so she put on her shirt from last year and they performed. :)

Gaucho Farms

After naps today, we headed to Gaucho Farms in Slocomb to fellowship with our church family. The girls had SO much fun and should sleep really well tonight.

After you look at my favorite pics, click here and read all about the farm. They have grass fed beef, organic vegetables, eggs, jams, jellies and the list goes on and on.  They are one sweet and precious family too!

This makes me laugh. She is a MESS!

It was a such a fun ending, to an already wonderful weekend.
