The GREATEST show on Earth

Here we are at the Barnum and Bailey Circus! Aida was totally mesmerized by it it. She thought it was awesome! Fiona loved it, Kellyn just sat on my lap and took it all in. It was a amazing show, we all really enjoyed it. The tickets were gifts for Christmas from my brother Jared's family, but I know it was really all Jill's doings! As Fiona said, it was the best Christmas present ever. Thank you!

Yes, before you ask I cut my hair off a couple of weeks ago. I was the gossip in the neighborhood! I think it totally took them by surprise!

Growing Up

It struck me the other day how grown-up Fiona is getting. She loves to cook. So, I've been letting her do some things on her own in the kitchen. Over Christmas break she started making peanut butter cookies on her own and was having Aida help her. She had gotten out the cookbook and picked a recipe. I noticed what was going on probably about half way through, and to be honest I was extremely tired having been up a couple of times the night with Kellyn, so didn't say anything and let her finish. She did Awesome! She has also made pancakes a couple of times all on her own. Last Sunday, she helped with making breakfast, she did scrambled eggs, sausage, and muffins.

Of course, she wanted whip cream and chocolate chips on the pancakes!

Christmas Eve dinner with friends. We had clam chowder and ham. Dinner was a lot of work, but well worth it.

We decided to go to the Aquarium in Chattanooga after Christmas. It was well worth the trip. We will be going to back to visit soon!

Our friends the Wylykanowitz's came for a few days and spent New Year's Eve with us. We had great time.
Our kids did a lot of dancing and putting on shows for us. It was fun to watch!
