I wanted to send out some Christmas Cards. I wanted to head up to Greystone Mansion to get some pictures of the kids. Then both of the boys had breakdowns and I couldn't even get them dressed. Evan was hysterical screaming because he wanted to wear a cowboy costume. James was on the verge of missing his nap and going to pieces. Steve looked at me and said, "I don't think were going anywhere anytime soon." So true. In real life we went into the backyard and got what we could.
There is always one who doesn't want to cooperate!
These boys have been known to destroy their shoes because they are so wild and rough. We have found that leather sperry's hold up wonderful; good enough to last through more than one child. .
It really feels impossible to get all three of them to smile at the same time.
Poor James isn't having it anymore!
I am sure Grandam Corbett would love this on her card.
This one is going on the Christmas card. What kids are really like in real life.
Though we don't really go out to the store for the Black Friday sales we told Hailey we'd take her to the American Girl Store. She brought along her money she earned from extra chores. Everything she wanted to buy wasn't on sale and she was on the verge of tears. She ended up buying some craft books for $1 each, so she was happy by the end.
We picked up some outfits and books for Christmas and holidays next year. A lot of things were sold out quite quickly and it's nice to get a good deal on items.
Hailey was excited to come home and start making crafts.
