Christmas Dresses

Our church had our annual Christmas Dinner last weekend. The girls looked so pretty in their dresses, so we snapped a few pictures before we rushed out the door.

She wants to be just like her big sister.
Great smiles!
Silly faces!
Perfect (except for that lamp in the background).

Gingerbread (Graham Cracker) Houses

My friend Heidi invited our playgroup to her house to decorate gingerbread houses. Last year, I helped Abby quite a bit on hers. This year she was on her own as I had to devote my entire attention on her sister.

Sarah had great fun and very specific ideas as to the placement of the candy. I squirted the icing and she put on the candy.
Why is it so hard to look AT the camera while you are giving your mother a cheesy-just-take-the-picture grin?
All the girls had fun with their houses.
Great fun with wonderful friends.

By the way, Sarah's house was smashed on the floor (by her own hand) before the week had passed.

Deck the Halls

Another first for Sarah -- CHRISTMAS! ...and all the festivities that go with it.

When Sarah got up from her nap one day, we had put the tree together and were stringing lights. She jumped right in and started helping Daddy light the tree.
Oooooh! The lights are pretty!
Next came the ornaments.

Look how well we did!
Now where are those presents?!
