I used to be really good about recording the funny things the girls did or said, but I've kind of fallen off the wagon. I am here to get back on it. These little moments are so precious and hilarious! I want to remember them forever. So, here are a few from this week.

Catherine and I were looking at our Nativity Scene talking about all of the people and animals. After going through all of them with her, I was "quizzing" her to see if she was getting any of it.

Me (pointing at the wisemen): Catherine, who are they?
Catherine: They are the three wifens.
Me: The wifens?
Catherine: Yeah. The wifens and that one is bringing Jesus his happy birfday cake.
After work one day, I was in my bedroom changing clothes. Hannah was playing in her room and Emma came creeping back to my room. She asked me to come in the kitchen. I finished what I was doing and as I walked towards the kitchen, I could hear Catherine saying "MOOOOOOMMMYYY!".

Me: Emma, where is Catherine? What is she yelling about?
Emma: giggle giggle. Just follow me.
Me (walking through the kitchen into the laundry room and realizing...): EMMA CLAIRE!
Emma: I asked her to see if she could fit in the dog kennel and when she climbed in, I locked it.
Catherine: Pwease let me out!!!
The other day on the way to school, Emma and Hannah were playing with some money and talking about the presidents on them.

Emma (holding up a $10 bill): Hannah, I bet you don't know who this is.
Hannah: That one is too hard. Give me an easy one.
Emma: (holding up a $5 bill): Ok. This one is easy. Look at this guy and tell me who this is?
Hannah (proud grin on her face): PRESIDENT LINCOLN LOGGER

Weekend Wrap Up: Concerts

Friday afternoon, Travis and I went to Tulsa for the Eric Church concert. We met Jon, Nicole, Cade and his date for dinner and then headed to the BOK Center. The entire concert was great. Live music is probably one of Travis and I's favorite thing to go do together. We both LOVE IT!

Saturday morning, we headed home and declared it "Family Christmas Movie Night". We ordered pizza, turned on the Christmas lights, popped popcorn and watch Elf. We all love that movie and had fun snuggling on the couch in our PJ's.

Sunday night, we went to the Christmas Concert at our church. I love our church, but I especially love it this time of year. The music. The lights. It's amazing. My favorite part is lighting the candles and singing Silent Night by candle light. It gives me chills every time.

Hope you all had a great weekend! Happy Monday!

On the way to Dallas, Hannah taught Emma a "cheer" that she learned from a friend at school. While we were in the hotel room, they wanted to perform for the camera.

Lord help me...these two are crazy!

Weekend Wrap Up: Limo Style

This weekend was pretty low key. Friday night, we hung out at the house and got most of the Christmas decorations up. We still need to finish the outside. Once that's done, I will post pictures of our cozy, Christmas house!

Saturday, the girls and I hung out at home and just played. It was uneventful and fun. Saturday night, Emma and I went to Claire's "Rockin' Limo Birthday" Party. Rachel got a limo and we drove down to Fayetteville to see the lights on the square. Then, we picked up pizza and had pizza and cupcakes in the limo. We drove around a while longer while the girls danced and laughed the night away. It was an awesome party. Emma had a ball!

Sunday, we went to church and lunch with our friends. Then, we took our Sunday afternoon naps, (everyone except Travis...he doesn't like naps....he's weird!) and went to the movies.

It was a great weekend!
