Christmas was so much fun this year. Sheridyn was so excited and it made Christmas so magical. Christmas Eve we went with my family to dinner at Applebees then we went swimming at a hotel where my brother works and played some games and Sheridyn and Jaylee did a little dance. It is so cute how Jaylee wants to be just like Sheridyn and she got up in front of everyone and just bounced to the music it was darling. Then in the morning Santa brought Sheridyn a pink four-wheeler and Jaylee a pink coupe car. Sheridyn has been asking for a pink four-wheeler for a couple of months so we thought she would be so excited but of course she went right for the pink coupe of Jaylee's and they have been fighting over it ever since. Haha what a morning! So after we saw what Santa brought we headed over to my parents house for opening presents and we stayed there all day. We really had a good Christmas this year and yes we got way to much stuff for Sheridyn and Jaylee they are so spoiled but we wouldn't have it any other way!

Dance Recital

Sheridyn had her dance recital for On Stage last night. She was so adorable!! She really did such a good job and she smiled and waved at us when she came out, it was so precious. My whole family and James parents and brother all came she had a whole cheering section. It was serious one of the highlights of my year. I was so proud of her she has no fear and just loves to get up there and perform.
We also went to East Elementary and saw Santa Claus. Sheridyn was so excited to tell him what she wanted for Christmas but then when he left she bawled because, "Santa didn't give me what I asked him for." I guess that is my bad, I should have explained more fully that we tell Santa what we want for Christmas and he brings it on Christmas Eve he doesn't give it to us right then. She was also worried about where he had left Rudolph. Jaylee was happy to see Santa and told him hi, she has been calling him "Ho Ho." But when he got to close she screamed and did not want to sit on his lap.

Decorating the Tree

Well we actually did this a couple last weekend but I'm just getting around to posting it. Sheridyn had a blast helping me and she actually did a really good job. Jaylee on the other hand just played in the ornaments but surprisingly she has not tried to undecorate it yet! For tradition we played Christmas music and ate cinnamon glazed almonds. It was a fun night.
We made this gingerbread house too. Sheridyn helped for about 5 minutes then she was bored so pretty much my mom and I did it ourselves but it was fun.
I love this pic! This is at my parents house and I thought it was so funny how they are the very same height!

Thanksgiving and Sheridyn's Birthday

Wow what a busy week! So for Thanksgiving we went to the Hoyt family side. Which we do every year because James loves to play in the "Turkey Tournament." It is a basketball tournament for the Valley High School Alumni. Their team played really well. They won two of their games and barely lost one by a point right at the buzzer! We had a lot of fun with James' family and had great Thanksgiving dinner. James also had his 10 year reunion but he had to go stag because I was sick :( I was sad I couldn't go, but he said he had fun. I had to steal this pics from Amber's blog because I forgot my camera! Hope that's ok!

This is James and two of his brothers Jason and Dillon.

Then on Monday Sheridyn turned 4!! I really can not believe she is already 4 years old. It was so much fun. We decided to have 2 different parties. One on Monday night was for the family and we all went to Wendy's for dinner (Sheridyn's favorite!) Then we came back to our house for root beer floats and presents. She got so spoiled as usual and she was so excited for every present. James and I got her a "Belle" dress up. She seriously has not taken it off since! The funnest part of the night is that Jaylee figured out that Sheridyn was getting all the attention and so she turned into a show off. She was laughing and smiling at everyone and every time Sheridyn would get out of her chair she would hurry and get in it. It was really funny she has never did that before. Then we played a fun game where I played princess music and when the music stopped whoever was holding the wand had to put on a dress up item. It was a lot of fun.
Then on Tuesday we had a "Princess party" for her friends. Everyone dressed up as princesses and we played pin the kiss on the frog, ate pizza and cake, painted out fingernails and made princess crowns. It was a blast. All of the cute little girls were so good and played together so nice. Sheridyn had a blast and everyone looked so cute.

Busy October

October was super busy and it went by so fast! The best thing that happened this month is Jaylee started walking!! It is so nice to not have her crawling around anymore. We did several fun activities this month. We went to the pumpkin patch, the pumpkin fest, had a couples Halloween party, mine and James' birthdays, Halloween Bunko, the Halloween carnival and trick or treating. I have tons of pics I want to post on each thing!

First this is a picture of Jaylee in her cute outfit I made her for her birthday (in August). She was not a fan of the way the tulle felt on her so it took several different picture sessions for me to finally got a cute one.

Pumpkin Festival

This year I won the pumpkin contest at my work! I was sooo excited. Here is a pic of my pumpkin man eating a pumpkin hamburger!
