{week 4} tree trimming

Friday, December 23, 2011

while I was away on my girls weekend...Kent and the trio went out in search of a tree. Grady thought it was great. We haven't had a "real" tree since Grady was a baby since babies and trees don't always get along. So this year is our year to stay home for the Christmas so we thought a real one was in order. It is perfect. Flat along the backside so we can push right up to the window. Grady loved putting the candycanes on it. Its a beauty. Merry Christmas to all.

"Best of all, Christmas means a spirit of love, a time when
the love of God and the love of our fellow men should prevail
over all hatred and bitterness, a time when our thoughts and
deeds and the spirit of our lives manifest the presence of God."
~George F. McDougall~

{Piano Concert} Williams Lake Seniors Village

Wednesday, December 21, 2011

Makenna loved her piano lessons. She had her first recital at the Seniors Village today. She play Jolly Old St Nick. She did great! Grady loved the Seniors Village....makes himself right at home. He sat with his Nana and cousins for a while then joined me after a pout... then ended the show off laying on the ground behind all the seniors. (cause you know this is gramies other house...she has fish here!)
I love having piano music in our home...

Grady's turn for a dancing premier!:) Grady has been practising for this elf hip hop dance on thursdays at preschool...the teachers said he loved it! But the performance was on tuesdays...so he was a little shy to be going on a different day. But the music started and he didn't miss a beat!:) He had the same amazing dance teacher; Melissa; that the girls have...I love the last shot in the series of mr D...who spotted his momma:) Here's hoping the elves take some time to dance...

Dance class

Wednesday, December 7, 2011

my girls have taken dance class with Melissa since Makenna was 3 and Carrigan was too little to be in it...Melissa is an amazing lady who provides an amazing dance experience to our lovely girls of the cariboo. She is now doing classes out of the rec centre. this was the girls dance recital for their class...Carrigan designed her own outfit....nothing plain for my girl. Makenna as usual was happy to be in pink. during the class mr brother Grady was making funny faces in the mirrors across the room....lovely brother!:)
good job girls!:)
(the photos are a little grainy...i didn't use any flash cause the mood was set for the performance...just bumped up the iso!)

52 weeks {week 1} sledding fun

Tuesday, December 6, 2011

I finished up my weekly photo challenge of my kids in the summer....since then I've only taken candid shots of them a handful of times. So I've decided to once again start the challenge again. From these weekly photos this is what I design my kids yearly album after. It encourages me to capture them in action in their little life and wow do they change quickly. I LOVE this shot...Grady obviously isn't that thrilled with the super fast ride down the hill and into the fence...even though they did it a half a dozen times....ahhh! winter fun...my kids are wishing for more snow. They like Daddy to pull them on the toboggan with his fast sled.
Game back on...I've been busy this fall...lots of blogging to catch up on! Stay tuned!:)
