Holiday Concert

On Monday Kenzie had her holiday concert at school. It was very cute. There was a huge turnout, standing room only in fact. We ended up sitting way in the back and had a little trouble seeing but I did sneak up before the concert started and get a couple of pictures.

Here she is at home. She loves to dress up!

She looked at me and waved then turned away before I could snap the picture!

And finally a smile...sorta.

First Snow

Saturday we got our first real snow of the season. It definitely made it feel more like Christmas. As soon as the ground was covered the girls wanted to got out and play in it.
This is the "I've got a snowball and I'm not afraid to use it" face.

Kenzie tasting the snow. Just watch out for the yellow stuff.

And here is Boomer who loves the snow too. That is not an orange he is eating. It is one of those mini pumpkin gourds. We threw then into the woods and guess who found one. Apparently they make a good snow day snack.

My little helper

When making a wreath for your front door it is important to have help. Especially if said help is furry, has four legs and likes to attack anything that moves. Earlier this week I set out to make a wreath for the front door and put all of the materials on the living room floor so that I could spread out. I didn't intend to provide entertainment for the cat but that is exactly what happened. Lucky for me the camera was close by so I could catch some of my "helper" in action.

Being curious as most cats are she came right over to check out what I was doing. She found it very interesting and proceeded to "help" me attach the colored ball with wire. Of course any moving object is fair game for play, right?

Then she helped choose which color should go on next. But first she had to chase it around the room for awhile to make sure it was just right.

Anyway despite the fact that it took me twice as long to complete the project because of my little helper here is the finished project. Thanks to the dollar store the whole project cost less than 10.00 and I think it looks pretty nice!
