The START of Christmas Break

Minnie kicked it off for us with a holiday concert on the last day before Christmas break....


such a sweet and special time to sit with my community and watch our kiddos...

as soon as Daddy got home we headed to the movies or as my gals call it... the "movie thee ay tah" :) I don't actually know that we have ever ALL gone to the movies together... it was a blast and the movie "Sing" was adorable

such a fun way to kick off the beginning of Christmas break!

Last BBall Game

Minnie had SUCH a great time playing basketball with the neighboring town rec department. Playing against her cousin and her buds from summer track certainly helped her comfort level....

I feel like she definitely learned some skills and got better as the season went on... the fact that she just LOVED it.... BONUS! :)

Her biggest fan club! :)



because it was the last game there was pizza and juice boxes....

for everyone! :)

Certificates and treat bags! :)


A job well done and a great season Minnie! :) We are so proud of you!

Taylor Family Christmas ~ where it all began....

This year is going to be my 10th year blogging... crazy I know... and you all thought I'd EVENTUALLY run out of things to say... When I think back to what I first blogged about Taylor Family Christmas always comes to my mind...
 
This year it was back at the CountryRents and we all had a wonderful time visiting, eating...

and playing with containers of "slime" that make tooting noises... always funny....


no matter how old you get ;)

Celebrating the Season

Click HERE for past years
 
 
What fun to show up with the same nail art as your friend! :)

"Nana" has moved into a MUCH larger facility but we took on the challenge of singing and performing for our third year in a row... these kiddos just LOVE it and I think the residents did as well :)

their pose just KILLS me. I mean I can't EVEN.

The kiddos did a GREAT job...




and they got resounding applause at the end... such a joy!






It is a tradition we look forward to and enjoy so much! Thanks for coordinating and organizing Liz!

Miss B...

The time I spend with you alone everyday Miss B is winding down... the time is going by WAY too fast for me and you and I are soaking it all up.... 

You are so ready for your next adventures.... growing so big you can ride the carousel ALL.BY.YOUR.SELF.

and so proud about that...

the sweet moments we have are such a gift to me...

but... slow it down sweet baby girl... slow it down...

P.S. too bad they don't make these boots in Mama-size...LOVE them :)

Pheebs Dances

Minnie and I had a special "date night" to see sweet Pheebs in her dance studio's rendition of the Nativity. It was such a sweet and beautiful show and the star we went to see was AMAZING!



It was such a wonderful way to spend a Friday night during the Christmas season...


I love how these two have very different "extra curricular" interests but they have already learned the selfless way to love and support each other and their differences. They enjoy watching the other one and encouraging their interests. Such a treasure in a friend.
