1st Dance Recital

Andie had her first ever dance recital this weekend!  Darrell and I are so proud of her!  She did great!  It was great...and a little entertaining too!  She did a tap dance and ballet.
Tap dance to "Sugar, Sugar"

These sweet girls became sweet friends this year.

Ballet dance to "If You Can Dream"

She had a ball!

Good thing we brought coloring books and pencils and crayons!  They were a big hit and helped pass the time between dances.

Big girl got her first ribbon and certificate!

So proud!

And she got a bouquet of flowers of her very own!...just like Fancy Nancy did after her Mermaid Ballet!

Andie's 4!

We can't believe our baby girl is 4!  Sweet girl has enjoyed her week-long celebration. 

John Thompson is 10 1/2 months and had fun celebrating his big sister.

Because we had her party the weekend after her birthday, she got her own little doggy cake on her birthday.  She thought it was great...especially the pink bows in the dog's ears!

Licking the candles, mmmmm!

Birthday Party time!  And look at THAT pose!

All the kids enjoyed Andie's new playhouse she got for her birthday!

I love that smile!

God is so good and has blessed us beyond measure.  Darrell and I love our sweet, silly, sassy, smart Bug!  John Thompson is such a joy and adores his big sister.  We are thankful for our 2 precious little gifts!  What fun it is to watch these two grow up!

I cannot believe our precios boy will be 7 months old this weekend!  He's 18 pouds of happy.  He just cut through his 2 bottom teeth last week.  He loves to eat, especially his vegies!  He's sitting up, toppling over some, but getting bette every day.  He always has his hands moving and circling, something in his mouth and his right foot kicking.  He loves the walker and johnny jumper.  Basically, he likes to move!  He loves to be outside.  He's a people (and dog) watcher. He's a snuggler and loves everyone and anyone.  He's his sister's biggest fan.  He's a great napper and sleeper (most of the time).  He loves to talk and sing, laugh and smile.  And we love every ounce of him! 

More Christmas

Andie loves her doll house from Nana, G and Papa!

Uncle John Edward and John Thompson

Thanks for the pic Jay!

Andie got to join her cousins in acting out the Christmas story at church Christmas Eve.  She was so excited.  There were an abundance of angels :o)

The BIG announcement!  Aunt Megan and Uncle Mark are having a baby!!  Andie and John Thompson are so excited about getting a new baby cousin!

Andie's big girl bike from Santa.  It's Pinkalicious!

And John Thompson loved his presents too!

Christmas night we braved the cold and rain at "The Farm."  Andie loved roasting...I mean making Daddy roast....her marshmallows.

Christmas is Coming

Our precious John Thompson is 5 1/2 months old and so sweet.  He loves attention and will talk and talk if you will listen.

Our annual Lights at the Zoo with the Scotts was lots of fun.  Andie had a ball, running and dancing through the zoo. 

Sweet cousins.  Andie LOVES her cousins!

Family photo!

I know I've said it before, but John Thompson LOVES his Andie.  And she adores him.  She says, "Hey! Hey! Want your sissy?"  He laughs at her and she just keeps on lovin on him.  It makes my heart oh so glad!

I love a baby in towel!

Our sweet little elves!  Merry Christmas everyone!  I pray God blesses you all with a restful, meaningful, and fun Christmas.
