Dawsyn, Sister Bella, tiny geerl, Alley Cat, Dawsy,  It all depends on who's talking to her.  But whatever she's called, we all agree she's a doll.

Hot Chocolate

The girls....especially Iley, have decided they like hot chocolate....and a friend over is always a good excuse. 
This cute little blondie is our neighbor.

 Brentley and Dawsyn were here too while their mamma got some stuff done and packed to go to Ohio.

 These guys are SO funny!


 Nannas not looking, I'll do this myself.

 Theses straws are trickier than I thought

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

This post is just my girls.

Wren all dressed up ready for her Christmas program at school.  It ended up not being anything Christmasy, but she had fun playing the straw seller in the 3 little pigs.  "straw for sale" "straw for sale"  And she got to wear blush and stand up in front of everyone.  She didn't look near this cute cause they put overalls on her for the play.  Oh well she was mighty pleased with her fuzzy shirt and new boots with a heel. She already had the skirt.

 Looking out to see if the bus is coming.  I liked the silhouette.

 Waiting....and drawing in the steamy window.

After the program, they had snacks for all the parents and kids.  Wren's teacher is the lady in the black shirt on the far right.

 Some of Wrens friends.  She is SO tall!!  What happened to tiny Asian people?  This girl has some tall genes!  I think these girls are a little younger than her, but she is still tall for her age.

 Papaw and his tiny girl.

 His comment "she's so precious and so perfect"  Yep, no arguments here.

 Iley ready for her program.  She got to wear her outfit and looked super cute.....except that she was in about the fourth row and all you could see was her face.  Oh well she loved her fuzzy shirt and sparkly skirt that twirled. She has Wren's boots from last year, so didn't get new boots.

 These were from yesterday.  Troy had left and taken the boys to Kansas to meet Grandpa and Grandma D. to head to OH early.  So the girls and I were left home alone.  They always stand fascinated, watching me put on make up, so I asked them if they wanted me to put it on them.  YES! They said.   But this is scary!!!  I can see this kind of selfie in about 4 years :(  ack!  Daddy get your gun!  These girls are gonna be gorgeous.  I took  their glasses off so I could see their eyes.  I love love love their little Asian eyes.  

Wren kept squinting her eyes shut......she is so hard to get a natural picture I told her to open her this mom?  Ok never mind!  We better start saving for braces too.  Wren has a serious over bite and Iley's are all over the place.

This is my favorite, so of course it's the one that's blurry :(

Christmas at our House

Hey......anyone......I can't see the pictures over here.

It's ok sissy, I'll look at them for you.

 Nuggets.  This is what he says everytime he sees a Mc D's sign.

 Dancing with Big Brother Ash in the kitchen.  We spent our time running non cookers out of the kitchen.  We had LOTS of nibblers........but less cooks.

We were blessed to have Micah and Carrie here for our Christmas too.  They flew in to Denver on their way home from Washington, and rode home with Ash and Ella to KS.

Sister time :) She loves her big sisters.

 Dawsyn with Aunt "tate"


Teaching Iley how to play solitaire on my phone.  I decided it was a fun way for them to learn how to sequence numbers.

 Brentley loves to "cook" and just carry around cups and plates and pretend to eat or feed you.

 Iley was super pleased with her stuffed puppy and pet carrier.

 Wren got a tool box with a paint brush, bungee straps, rope and pulley and hooks.

 Pleased with his exotic blueberry and orange rootbeer.

 I'm telling Wren it's for your hair.

There are no pictures of Ella because I put her in charge of taking the pictures, and Finn was sleeping, and Ash was sitting right beside her, but they were there too!  I wish I would have stolen the camera and got them in some.  I was covered in girls most of the time though.
