Ready for Christmas

The kids are so excited and ready for Christmas this year! They have had all sorts of countdowns and advent calendars and let me know numerous times a day how many days are left until Christmas.  Here are some pictures from my phone from the last couple of weeks....

 They are obsessed with hot chocolate with LOTS of marshmellows

 They both loved him!

 We had lunch with my friend Teresa and the kids got to do crafts that she was doing with her class.  They had a blast!!

We LOVE Teresa!

 Maddie and I had some extra help this year with our annual cinnamon roll making

 We skipped the gym one day and did crafts all morning

 And decorated cookies

Santa's Art Workshop

Last weekend we took the kids to Santa's Art Workshop at the Fine Arts Institute in Edmond.  They got to rotate through a couple of art stations, have hot chocolate and cookies while Mrs. Clause read them stories and then they got to chat with Santa and tell him everything they wanted for Christmas.  They had a blast and were both beyond excited to hang with Santa this year!

 Working hard on their projects

 There were lots of elves running around helping and Drew was a little nervous to take his eyes off of them

 Story time with Mrs. Clause

 Waiting their turn....They were so excited

 Drew was telling him all about his bday party he had here and about his new bike he got. He stood up there for a good 5 minutes chatting with Santa.  He also told Santa that all he wanted for Christmas was cupcakes and a "gooter" (scooter). Ryan was in awe of the whole thing and was shockingly very quiet the whole time.

 The elf got out the Naughty or Nice list to check for their names.  I love how serious they both got about this.

Hanging out with some of the Elves after.

Drew is 3!

Drew turned 3 on Friday.  He got to celebrate with his friends at school before T-giving break and then with the family on his actual birthday and then had a party on Sunday.  Today when I was taking him to school he asked if he could have his birthday again at school.  He was a little disappointed when I told him it was over and he had to wait until next year. 

 Birthday blueberry muffins that he requested

 Dinner at Musashi's

We had Dustin from Kickingbird pets come and do a presentation with animals at the party.  He did an awesome job making it educational but also really fun for the kids.
