Disney On Ice, Cookies, Santa and a Christmas Pageant!

The first weekend in December is Dustin's annual deer hunting weekend.
We find LOTS of fun things to do while he's off "Feeding the Family."
We took a few pictures.
Preston is a good sport and will usually hold a doll for Peighton.

Friday night we watched Christmas movies!

Saturday we were off to Disney on Ice.

No family picture is complete these days without little Cy.

There were lots of princesses there but one of our favorites was the Toy Story show.
We LOVED Slinky-Dog!

Preston giggled when the potato heads came out.

The army men were quite impressive, we liked those too.

My favorite from the whole show was Barbie and Ken though!
Ken even had the molded plastic hair-as every Ken doll should!!!
We also hit the horse drawn carriage rides in Kalona!
It was so much fun riding around town in this!

We found a few buddies to ride along with us.


Sunday morning was our first Christmas pageant.
Preston was cast as the part of a lamb.
He played his part very well-he sat on the hay bale and looked cute.

Peighton was a shepard.
She even had a few other lambs following her.
It was an adorable Christmas pageant and I'm sure they will look forward to it next year.

After church we squeezed in our annual cookie decorating day at Grandma Sue's.

She's become quite the professional cookie decorator...she's had lots of years of practice!

He's mostly an eater of the cookies but did decorate a few.

That afternoon was West Chester's Christmas celebration so we had to stop and see Santa, do a few crafts and eat some cookies!

It was a weekend packed full of fun adventures!

Peighton's new house

Dustin has been working for quite awhile on a house for Peighton's American Girl dolls.
It's been done for a few weeks now and we are having so much fun decorating it!

Peighton and her buddy Cy.
They are never far apart.

We still need to find living room furniture and  bathroom stuff...but I'm guessing there might be a few things under the tree that will work!

She is loving it so far!
It's a good thing we have a big playroom-this thing is huge!

There were quite a few scraps of wood leftover so Preston got a big table he can play tractors on or do legos!

Children's Mass and Preston the Turkey

The kids got to do a children's mass at church a few weeks ago.
The preschoolers were all the animals God made.
Preston got to be the turkey.
He was excited that he got to sit with his class during mass and not with  me.
After church was all over, I discovered that he had snuck in his blackberry and was making (pretend) calls during mass in the back row!!!

It was hard to get pictures, but Peighton's part was Eve.

The whole group.

He played the turkey well but he said it was pretty hot.

Can't wait for the Christmas Pageant this weekend!
