It's  NYE so I better get my Christmas post in before the year is over.  Last year christmas was awful, I was in the hospital with a uterine infection after giving birth to beans & so this year I just relaxed & enjoyed the holiday because it was easy to think things could be a lot worse, hey at least your not in the hospital! 
The girls woke us up of course ;-) we had breakfast of milk & apple pastries and then started to open gifts. I played Santa & handed out one at a time.  Jacobs big gift was really fun because he had been begging for a PS4 and we kept telling him he couldn't have it. So he was really sure he wasn't getting it.  It was fun when he opened it.
The girls both got a big unicorn that interacts with them & beans got a drum with lots of other instruments in it.  That was everybody's big gifts & then lots of other little gifts.  I kept out a few gifts to open later in the day.
Daddy made a turkey & stuffing & I made  sweet potato casserole, rolls, baked beans, and deserts we made on Christmas eve. Beans took a late nap after lunch and the girls played with their new toys all day. We went outside to take a walk & play for a bit since it was 70 degrees! And then back inside to unwrap a few more gifts.  It was a wonderful Christmas!

November 2015

Last month went by in a flash. We did so much. Miranda came to visit us for a couple weeks, the girls turned 6,  school & girl scouts, Beans playgroups, and our Thanksgiving vacation to NC. We had a lot of fun visiting everyone and Jacob even came back with us! We got to visit with Bubby a lot more than usual, we celebrated Beans first birthday, Thanksgiving, and Christmas since we won't be there on Christmas. We even did some black Friday shopping and visited the new aquarium all in 3 days! One night while at grandma's we were watching Rudolph & I took this pic of the boys watching it.  I love it!


My lovies turned 6 in November.  They were sick & stayed home from school on their bday. Miranda was here with us and we let them open a few of their presents early in the morning.  The following Saturday we had a fun birthday party with friends. A few friends from girl scouts & a few from daddies work that they met on take your kids to work day ;-) They loved it and Anjali said it was the best party ever because they got to have friends there. Vaishali is super excited to be 6 and growing up. I'm so glad they had a great birthday! They're growing up so fast,  I wish I could just stop time and keep my lovies small. Happy birthday girls! Momma loves you bunches! !!

The girls did a trunk-or-treat with youth group last week & Trick-or-treat on Halloween at the mall.  The twins were rainbow dash my little ponies & Arya was a butterfly.  It was a fun day, and after that Miranda & me started decorating for Christmas! The count down to Christmas has begun!

Fall 2015

As soon as Halloween is over,  I get busy about Christmas. So, that's the end of fall as far as I'm concerned.  Miranda came to visit us for a bit & we went to the pumpkin patch & picked a huge pumpkin!

First day of Kindergarten

A little late but I did the important part, take pictures!!! The first day of Kindergarten was August 31st & the girls love their school,  their friends,  and their teacher.  It's been a very easy transition for them. The last pic is one I took last week on picture day when they got home from school, they wanted me to take it to send to grandma.  So sweet!

Ruffles & Disney on Ice

We had such a fun weekend!  First, we let the girls adopt a kitty; they've been begging for a kitty for 3 years now.  They named her Ruffles & she watches tv! Friday school was out & I took them to see a live show called Biggity Bad & the Three Pigs & out for lunch at the Purple Plum. Saturday morning we left early to head to Pennsylvania at the Hershey Park stadium to see Disney on Ice!  We all loved it!  Beans was clapping & moving about with the music,  Vaishali kept saying "I love this & I want to do this when I grow up" & Anjali was very focused on the show.  Me & Daddy sang along to the songs because we know them ALL ;-) After Disney on Ice we went to an Indian Buffet for lunch & then back to hershey park for chocolate world. On our way home we passed by the HobLob to look at Christmas Decor & such. Today has been spent at home relaxing & getting ready for the week ahead.  Fun weekend!

4th of July

We went to NC for a quick weekend trip on the 4th of July.  I can't believe it but I didn't take any pics until the last day when the girls visited their cousins.  I kept meaning to take pics with the boys & then later forgot :-(
