Milk and cookies with Santa

We got to attend the Milk and Cookies with Santa party at the Treehouse this year.

We had to coax Santa to come out by singing "Santa Claus is Coming to Town". The girls' faces both lit up once he came out ringing his jingle bells.

Milk and cookies were a big hit.
Annie even made a new friend who she calls "my bear friend". What a fun night!

The girls had a "super" Halloween. They were so excited to be "Super Sisters". This was the first year they actually ran from house to house trick-or-treating. Big Sis couldn't get enough. We could barely keep up with her! She is already planning what she and Little Sis are going to be next year.

The Preschool Adventure

These pictures are actually from the end of August, but I thought I'd post them anyway. I decided to try my hand at teaching preschool out of our basement this year. It has been quite the adventure! Things get a little busy, but overall it has been a fun experience. I have learned so much from these adorable 3 and 4 year olds. My daily experiences have led me to research that is hopefully helping me become a better teacher and most importantly, a better mom. My toolbox, as some say, is being filled with things I wouldn't otherwise know. I'm really grateful for the experience and hope it continues to go as well as it has been. Big Sis loves getting to see her friends three times a week, and Little Sis has become a little social butterfly. Thanks to all the moms who are giving me the opportunity to teach (and learn from) their kids!
