Turkey Day 2011

We hosted Thanksgiving at our house this year.  Nana and Papa came up from Sebastian, Aunt Nita and Trace' came up from Gainesville, Aunt Judy came with Grandma and Grandpa.  I am really upset that I didn't take many pictures, especially a group picture.  

We started the day with the girls playing on the back porch, all bundled up playing with their bugs.

At around 9am something really cool happened, the girls started to watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.  I remember when I was little that it was always on, the performers, the giant balloons and of course the surprise ending.  They really loved the music and would do their own dances, it was really cute to watch.

It was such a great day, everyone brought something and it was such a great spread of food.  It was so nice to have family around and to celebrate the holiday.  Lily really didn't seem to like any of the thanksgiving food, well except for the rolls...go figure.

I also decided to recycle the thanksgiving dress from last year.  What a big change.

2 Year Pictures

An up and coming photographer wanted some pictures of twin toddlers for her portfolio.  It was a win win for all parties.   I am so lucky to have such great people around who want to take pictures of the girls.  I love them all so much!!!





 The cheese monster arrived at the last minute :-)

Lily's Haircut

It was that time again...time to cut Lily's hair.  This was her third "official" haircut, but the only one that we actually have pictures of.  We went to this great kids salon in town.  She was hesitant at first and did not want to go in the seat.  We bribed her into the seat with toys :-).  The next obstacle was getting the cape on her....she was not having that at all.  We tried a few times and then Roxy put it on backwards and she was fine and it was smooth sailing from there.  She did really great, she watched the video. I love her new and improved hair style.

How cute is the back!

Emma you will get your hair cut soon :-)
