Christmas Parade

I LOVE parades even in the winter. The girls were so excited to see a parade as well. Grafton (the next town over) does this fun holiday parade every year. 
 The girls got lots of candy!

 Ahh... the Klements Racing Sausages. They are an icon in Wisconsin. I think Ryan was more excited to get his picture taken with them then the girls were. 

 Emmy was such a trooper and slept the whole time. 

 After the parade we did our weekly trip to Costco. I just love Costco. 
 It was a long fun filled day. The girls simply crashed when we got home.
Let the Holidays begin!

Thanksgiving 2011

We had a fantastic Thanksgiving this year. We decided to have our first Thanksgiving with just our little family. It was a relaxing day at home. 
Lilly loves giving gifts to her friends so we made this turkeys for all her little friends. 
 Lilly dressed and ready to deliver her turkeys.
 Ryan always does an amazing job of cooking the turkey. This year was no exception!

 Our little feast. 

 I wanted to get a family picture to remember our thanksgiving by. Kate just could not make it to the end of the day so as she slept we cuddled close for the family picture.

We don't mess around!

Right after Halloween I begin decorating for Chirstmas. I love Christmas decor and how warm it make the house feel. The girls love getting the decorations out as well.

 Look close at Kate. I pulled the Christmas stocking out of the box and handed them to the girls. Kate asked what is was. I said "Its your Christmas stocking Kate." The next thing I know Kate had it on her foot and was complaining because it did not fit very well.
 Then I showed her that her name was on it and Santa would put presents in it. She thought that was a much better idea then wearing it. 

 The girls could not wait for the decorations to be found. They started putting all kind of random stuff on the tree. 
 Cute Emmy watched and love all the commotion and lights.
