We got to observe Kathleen's dance class last Friday.
She loves to dance!!
I just had to include this picture I caught of her in the mirror, she was getting tired of me taking so many pictures and was giving us "that look" lol.
Finishing up with a Christmas tap routine! :-)
After observing we rushed home, ate a quick dinner and loaded the car to travel to my parent's house to celebrate Christmas with them.
These pictures are taken at my Mom's house, I found Kathleen's dress in Kohl's and just fell in love with it!
The girls were building a cupcake tree for dessert!
Some decorations around my Mom's house, always warm and welcoming.
Nice warm fire on a blustery, cold day....
Caught a group shot of the girls with their cousins and their cousin Amy's boyfriend. He was such a good sport. At one point they had him dressed up like a Christmas tree, but I couldn't get any clear pictures of that! LOL
Waiting patiently as their presents were being handed out :-)
We even had some cute little reindeer cupcakes to enjoy...
We opened lots of presents and made so many special memories. One in particular memory we all got a good laugh from was the coffee my niece picked out especially for Jerry.....
It's called Jamaica Me Crazy! LOL We all had a great laugh about this one!
I took many more pictures but wanted to just include a few this time. On the way home Kathleen was worn out!
Hayley held out for awhile enjoying her music and her new hat! :-)
Notice the overloaded back seat? LOL Good things the dogs are staying with my parents when we go away I don't know how we would have fit everything in the van!
Yesterday I received a lovely card and gift from one of my dear blogging friends, Patti.
We met last year and have formed a lasting relationship. I feel so blessed to have met her and gotten the chance to know her better. Thank you so much my dear friend! I greatly treasure our friendship! Patti has two wonderful blogs, one she writes incredible reviews of old movies she's watched. If you get a chance stop by and say hello to her, she's quite a sweetheart!
Well I'm off to get baking and packing and working on my 7 page to do list! Funny, it seems to be growing and not shrinking. Oh, our basement is dried out and the insurance guy was here today to process the claim so hopefully after vacation we'll get that all back in order! Have a fabulous week and I'll be by to visit you all soon!! :-)
