Here are some pictures from Allison's kid party last week. Only a couple girls were able to stay for the whole thing, but they had a lot of fun and overall it was a success!

Allison wanted a garden party so we had lots of fun with bugs and flowers!

The girls played "pin the bee on the flower."

I used green soda bottles and colored foam to make "flowers" for a ring toss game.

The highlight of the party was when the girls made "dirt" out of pudding, cookies and gummi bugs, worms and mushrooms - yum!

They had a lot of fun playing together.

Allison's big gift from dad and mom this year was a doll, Katie, complete with matching nightgowns for her and her new doll - it was a big hit! :)

It finally warmed up enough to snow!

Things have been busy with the holidays. We celebrated a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend with family and friends. There were thankful hearts, turkey, caramel corn and sledding! A week later, we enjoyed a festive St. Nicholas Day with family. This week is Allison's birthday - she's turning seven...already! Tomorrow, she'll be having a party with some of her friends and I'll try to post some pictures next week. Then we'll move on to baking, sledding, visits and Christmas! Here are some pictures of our most recent activities:

Allison enjoyed helping decorate gingerbread cookies.

Abby enjoys playing with her little people toys.

The girls had fun decorating wood ornaments the day we put up our Christmas tree.

Abby likes wearing mommy's shoes :)
