Christmas Craft

What better way to entertain the kiddos...a new Christmas craft! Such an easy project and it was a huge hit. All you need are sugar cones, green icing, and sprinkles/candy. They make the perfect little Christmas trees. Not only that, but the kids enjoy licking the icing off their fingers and the occasional snacking on m&m's.
We had such a great time!
What better place for these adorable trees to sit...then right next to our first homemade gingerbread house (kit compliments of our Mimi)
It all turned out so cute! Then, with all the kids on a little sugar high...some "Ring-Around-the Rosy" helps top off the perfect afternoon.
And we all fall down!
Finally, nothing beats the three big kids running away from little ole Leighton.

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

It is snowing! Yes, it is actually snowing right now. However, these cute pictures were from the big snow we had last week. We got a decent amount so we had to get the girls out in it of course. I tell you what, my girls look pretty cute all bundled up! I really can't quit smiling when I see these photos. They are just so much fun at this age (aside from Logan's occasional tantrum of course), and Brian and I really are enjoying them!

I love this picture because you can see Leighton's big front teeth that just came in last month (we call them the Cross buckers).
Our little snow bunny. (Although when we put her in the real thick snow she just started to cry because she didn't actually want to walk in it.Even Murphy got in on the snow action.Such cute girls we have!And finally, this is my "mom please leave me alone so I can play" face. Love it!

Fall officially comes to an end...

Well, with the four + inches of snow on the ground and the single digit weather tonight I would say fall has officially ended here in Lexington. The snow is great, but I can say I don't exactly love it when the high for the day is in the teens or the low 20's. Just thought I would share a few pictures from the fun fall festivities our family enjoyed this year... since I am so far behind on posting.

The girls absolutely loved the fort I built inside, perfect for a tea party!.
Picking out pumpkins at the pumpkin patch Having fun painting one of those pumpkins. Weekly playdates with our best buddies.
Some outside...

Fun at the park
Oh how we loved all the great things to do outside. More pics will follow soon of the snow from this past week. Just thought we would look back on all the fun we had this past fall.
