Sometimes I get down on myself for being such an "at home mom". What I mean by that is that in a world of "go, go, go, do, do, do" I'm certainly not the mom who's checking out new parks, hitting up Legoland or researching what activities the local library is hosting. For the most part we stay at home. Our backyard and walks to kindergarten suffice for outdoor time and I'm always game for art projects and crafts (paper towel roll + two paper plates + glitter glue = butterfly) in the dining room. I bake with the kids (that's math right?) and we frequently munch popcorn and sip hot chocolate together. However, on Tuesday we ventured out, WAY out of our usual radius (Poway) to check out a neighborhood that goes all out on holiday cheer.
We went with some dear friends and the kids had a blast!
|Can I get an Amen?!|
|Sweet little beauty didn't know what to think|
|Merry Christmas!! Love The Kellas'|
Not to be over shadowed, Samantha is now 11 months. How did that happen?? Sister is not only a bit of a drama queen, she's embracing the role of pesty little sister. Trent seems to be the target when he's eating or playing with Legos and Juliana is the target whenever she's doing one of her MANY art projects. Nevertheless, Sammy girl continues to delight us with her determination and strong opinions :)
|Sweet little face, love her chubby cheeks and little lips|
|This view is coming to an end. Sister started walking...I'm gonna miss hearing those hands slap the ground and seeing her little diaper rump from this angle. BTW, I wanna eat her toes, so cute!|
Happy Wednesday (night)...only three full shopping days left till Christmas, are you done yet??
