Decorating the Yard for Christmas

So we thought that it would be fun to start accumulating christmas decorations for the yard.  You ladies are excited about the holidays.  We went to the store and bought some large ornaments for the tree in the front yard.

off to hang them
It's a start.  We will add more next year.

Next we moved on to the candy cane lights up the front walkway.

The last thing we did was to hang some lights on the tree to the side of the house.  It looks a little like Charlie Brown's christmas tree, but it is a start.

Look out Griswold's...we're coming after you.

Today is the last regular season football game.  It's the big FSU v. UF game.  We went a little early so we could walk around the stadium and take it all in.
The Goodyear blimp was there and it was flying right over the stadium.

there were commemorative sports illustrated magazines in all the seats

The game did not end the way we wanted, but it was fun nonetheless.

Nole Girls

Today is the big FSU v. UF football game.  Hopefully in a few years you ladies can come to the games with us and cheer...GO NOLES.  In the mean time you ladies can cheer from home.  I love that you can still wear the dresses that I made for you last year.  They are shirts now, but they are still cute.  While we were waiting for Grandma and Grandpa to come over, we decided to go in the front yard and play with some leaves and take some pictures.  You ladies are such good sports when it comes to mommy taking pictures.

Sisterly love

Hip hip hooray

Mommy, where's Lily?  Tossing leaves are fun.

what a great shot of my nole girls!

First Bike Ride around the Block

This was not your first rode ride, that happened in the summer, this was your first ride off our street.  It was such a beautiful day.  It started out really well, you ladies were excited to go on a ride around the block.

It was a really fun ride.  After the ride we played in the front yard and had a mini photo shoot.
