Christmas with a 2 and 3 year old is SO. MUCH. FUN. Reese was old enough to participate in her school Christmas program this year. It was fun to watch her sing with all of her friends. During the first portion she decided to be shy and suck on her fingers. She eventually broke out of her shell and participated without hesitation.

Reese has been going overnight with a dry pull up here and there. We wondered if she was just being lazy and truly had the ability to hold it if she had incentive. So Neal told her that if she had a dry pull up 5 night in a row she could put a pie in his face. Sure enough she was just being lazy and on Christmas Eve she got to put a pie in his face. She has gone over a week now pull up free with no issues. So proud of her!
We spent Christmas with Gigi and G-Pop this year. The girls had a blast. I just love this tradition of new Christmas pajamas and the adorable photos that I have gotten year after year. This year's photos are my favorite yet.
The girls had a lot of fun doing little kitchen projects with Gigi. They made snowmen out of marshmallows, stuffed cookies and brownie reindeer.
Ella got an E ornament made by G-Pop just like the one her sister has.
G-Pop made them name puzzles that I know they will cherish always. They are really cute and I love that they are made by their Pop.
They got to "make a mess" which means remove all of the couch cushions and jump onto them. They think that this is the most fun activity that there is.
Santa visited our house while we were gone but he also made a quick stop at the grandparents and dropped off some stockings.
Gigi and G-Pop got them backpacks with sleeping bags in them that they both love.
I am trying to capture a shot like this of the 5 of them every time we go to Neal's grandparents. I know that Neal will cherish these photos.

Ella got her kitty that she wanted so badly.
Reese got the flying fairy that she wanted so badly.
We all had a great Christmas and now to try to recover the house from all of the new stuff.
