Christmas 2007

Christmas this year was a lot of fun. Shantel is into the whole Santa thing and Kallie kept asking were Santa was..although she still doesn't really get it. There were two things Shantel kept asking for a "Barbie car to drive" and a Dinosaur. (I know what 5 yo girl wants a dino?). Kallie had no idea and Keegan I think just wanted boy toys...who could blame him he has been playing with girls toys for a year!

Shantel and Kallie got a Princess Car to drive..boy they wouldn't get out of the thing and kept driving into the walls, so we had to put it in the garage. Our smart Shantel even asked why it wasn't a Barbie car.. those darn elves must have painted the wrong thing!

Keegan finally got something a boy could be proud of...a basketball hoop. It is so much fun, every time you make a basket it makes noise and plays music. Keegan loves to put the ball in the hoop and then dance to the victory song. He also got about 5 different cars and trucks and some tools.

Keegan our Little Man. Kallie helped the photographer get the perfect picture by tickling him with the feather duster and playing with the toys. The only draw back was Keegan trying to walk off the set!

Kallie was so excited to get her pictures today in her "Princess" Dress. She sat very still while I curled her hair and when we go there she climbed up on the set and yelled cheese before we were ready. She would go up to the other kids waiting and hold her dress out and say "I'm Cinderella". She's our Little Princess!

Shantel was a dream. It only took one take for her picture! The photographer posed her and Shantel didn't move. She was a little disappointed that she only had one take. I think she wanted a full photo shoot!

Happy 5th Birthday Shantel !!!

Our Big girl just turned 5 . I can't believe we have a 5 year old. She was really excited to be 5. A wonderful world awates her...or so she thinks. She gets to start Kindergarten this coming year and everything.

She had preschool today and took cupcakes to her class to celebrate. Gary took the day off and we spent the day with her just hanging out. I had to work that night, but we went to Jungle Jims to play the next day. They had so much fun riding the rides and playing games.

I will get photos up soon!

Shantel's Christmas Recital

Shantel had her Christmas dance recital with her dance group. This is her 3rd time on the "Big Stage". Cousin Ella has started dancing with her this year. They have so much fun together in class. They danced to Rockin Round the Christmas Tree and did a great job.
