We have been primping to get ready for Jesus' birthday :)
first we had to take off my old nailpolish
yes, it was a family affair

Dan and I both got leg massages

LOTS of lotion :)

Danny did my hair!

The girls had their eyes and lips done

Aren't we just beautiful!!!

Today the kids got to open 1 present from each mail package
Gerri got right into it!
Victoria wanted to open everything under the tree :)

Then the kids had to sprinkle the reindeer food outside

yes, it WAS cold out :) 48 degrees in FL!

Then turkey dinner, baths and 1 last present :)

Then the cookies were put out with a couple of carrots
Danny added a note pad and pen so Santa could thank us!

The kids were all asleep by 8:30 and we had to wrap wrap wrap!
But we are ready to go!

Sant left a cute thank you note with his crumbs!
Several times today Victoria asked if it was bedtime yet and when was it going to be dark?!?!?

Birthday Party at P*mp it Up!

Victoria was invited to a birthday party for a boy in her preschool class.
 Luckily they had room for siblings, this was Gerri's first time :)

The kids were pretty good about sticking together, Danny is very protective

Then they tried the slippery slope!!

Gerri's first time climbing all the way up and then going down the slide!
She did not really like it the first time, but kept doing it and loved it!

Poor Danny so wanted to hula hoop, but the poor boy does not have the hips :)

video

The girls went up and down the slide SO many times!

Then they got to shoot plastic balls at the other kids!
Danny loved this part the most

Then shoot some hoops

I am king of the world!!

Then they raced each other in the obstacle course!
Gerri got lost in it the first time and I had to send the other 2 in to find her :)

She liked it!

Then she figured out how to use this scooter

Group picture - Victoria is not in it since she was sitting in my lap crying from the loud music :(

The birthday boy in his chair!

Settling in for cake!

Doing crafts!
Everyone had a good time and was SO tired when we left :)
