Greenland Hills hosted a Cider Stand on Saturday to raise money for the Stewpot. The girls helped serve cider, we all donated socks for the homeless and decorated Christmas cards for them. We raised 500$ and we will take it to them next week as a field trip!
We spent Thanksgiving at my Uncle Jeff's house this year. I am so lucky most of our family lives in Dallas so we can all celebrate together and not travel too far. Thanksgiving morning we woke up and skipped the Turkey Trot this year since it was rainy and cold. We snuggled and watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and relaxed and played. The girls took a nap and then we drove out to Uncle Jeff's in Plano. He did a great job on the turkey and we ordered our meal from Eatzi's and Luby's. Ha, it's the best way to go when you have 2 small children at home and not enough time to cook or clean! My grandmother was there, Erika, Coco, Buelo, cousin Grayson, Uncle Bud, Aunt Lisa and her son Chris and wife Laurie and their 2 sons. We had a great time and my girls had a blast with the boys and playing the drums :) Thanks for hosting Jeff!
Aunt Heather, Carolyn and Buelo Richard came into town the weekend before Thanksgiving and we had a great time with them! The girls love playing with them and hated to see them go.
Grandpa (aka my dad) turned 70 today!! He came in town for work and luckily it was the same week as his birthday and we could all see him! Sherry came too and the girls were excited to see her! We spent the day with them and then had dinner at the French Room to celebrate. Thanks to mom for babysitting!
Disney Store Opening
Luna was out of school today so I took the girls to the Disney Store to do the Grand Opening at 10am! The first child there gets to open the store with a huge key and lock. I thought it would be a cool thing to do for our upcoming trip! My mom met us there and thankful she got there before me and was able to get our first place in line:) Belle also got a turn at opening the store and the clerk gave each of them a Disney Key ornament to take home.
Box Car Derby
Luna's Adventure Princess group had a box car derby race on Saturday. Todd had worked on it with her the week before but kept saying he just could not find the time or the tools to get it the way he wanted it. Ha, he now sees what it's like in the mom world of doing projects, baking and crafts for school and different functions. Finding the time is such the hardest part with 2 littles at home! Pinterest fail all the time at our house ;) Annnd, unfortunately Luna's car came in last place. But they learned some tricks for next year!
We celebrated our 6 year anniversary tonight and so thankful my mom could babysit! We went to CBD (central business district) at the Joule Hotel downtown and had a nice time, great food, champagne on the house and amazing dessert!
We started this blog about 'nothing' a couple of years ago, but now it has turned into a blog about our precious daughter Luna, born on May 13, 2010! And then we welcomed baby Belle, 2 years later on May 23rd, 2012.
