DPP Day 29: Covered in kids!

Love all these crazy kids. Even at 7am. 

DPP Day 28: Ouch!

Keaton took a spill on the scooter today. A good lesson to always wear his helmet even if he's not riding far! His new favorite phrase is "you should see the other guy!"

DPP Day 26: The Force Awakens

Finally our turn to see Star Wars. Papa graciously stayed home with Sailor. It was just as good as we expected! And the boys have been light saber fighting ever since...

DPP Day 23: My Princess

Her first princess nightgown! Thanks to Aunt Jenny (of course)! I loved NYC but it was sure great to squeeze my kids this morning! We are in SC now, and Sailor is excited to have a new tree to un- decorate!

DPP Day 22: Serendipity

This morning we finally got to try the frozen hot chocolate at the famous Serendiptity! We even got to recreate the Serendiptity movie by sitting at he same table as John Cusack and Kate Beckensdale in the movie. 

Little did we know, Jimmy Fallon and family were also enjoying the frozen hot chocolate somewhere else in this very tiny restaurant at the same time as us!

DPP Day 20: Welcome to New York

Our first day in NY!! We arrived at 8:15am had a blast walking all around the city. I already love NYC way more than I expected. So thankful that tomorrow is supposed to be warmer! My fingers and toes were freezing today. 

This is us next to the "Imagine" mosaic in Central Park. And yes, we do have aselfie  stick and we're not afraid to use it!

DPP Day 17: While you were sleeping

I was napping on the couch and Mark stole my phone and took about 50 photos. Here is one.

DPP Day 16: Reading together

Today was our last day of bible study before Christmas. Sailor received a sweet gift of two new books from her teachers. Mark was "reading" them to her when we got home.

DPP Day 15: Sing a long

It's extremely hard to find Mark in this picture but he had his preschool Christmas singalong this morning. It's such a fun time of singing carols with the kids. I think I will miss this school as much as Mark will next year!

DPP Day 14: Elf on the Shelf

Why couldn't I have thought of the Elf on the Shelf? I'd be rich! 
Mark can't wait to come downstairs every morning to find Thomas's new hiding place. Would you believe this sly elf even followed us to Williamsburg last weekend? He also does funny things like move our furniture around while Mark's at preschool. Of course, Keaton's way to smart for all of this fun, but he does play along for his brother. He even sneaks out of bed every night to help find the elf a new spot to hide.

DPP Day 9: Cookie Day

Today was our annual cookie decorating day! Mark helped me stir up and bake the cookies, and then they went to town decorating after Keaton got home from school. I never cease to be amazed at the amount of finger licking that goes into this project!

DPP Day 8: Soccer

Mark's trying another new sport today! Glad it's finally his turn with the soccer ball.

DPP Day 7: First time in the ice

The first time ice skating is always a little tricky. This is where Keaton "hung" out most of the time at the Colonial Williamsburg Liberty on Ice. It was slippery and scary but both boys had a blast learning!

DPP Day 6: Waiting for the fireworks

We are in Williamsburg for a couple days, and this evening Colonial Williamsburg had a grand fireworks show. We got there early and had some time (like 3 hours) to kill. 
Sailor took a minute to snuggle in between running off to chase her crazy Bubbas. 
She was not a fan of the fireworks, by the way. She would anxiously peer up at the sky and then bury her face in my coat after each BOOM! Poor baby!

DDP Day 5: Santa

Santa made a stop at Occoquan Town Hall this morning!

Sailor liked him from afar, but not up close!

DPP Day 1: Oh! What fun!

I'm on a roll with the daily blogging! Time for a picture a day in December! Ambitious, yes. Especially since I'll be traveling a good bit of the month but here goes...
This girl loves Christmas time already! She walks (Yes, she WALKS now!) around all day saying "Oh! Oh!"
