Well here's the last little bit of 2014. and yes, I'm still writing that on my checks! Argh!!!

Anyway, December is a bit reminiscent of November with birthdays, holidays, school parties, parades...just so much packed into such a short time.

Here's what it looked like for us...

This year when we put the lights up - he had some help! Not sure how much help, but he had some just the same!

It's just not a birthday if you don't have birthday pancakes made by Dad!!
I just love this tradition!!!!
For whatever reason, he likes for me to bring
donuts as his treat for school.

The Saturday of his birthday party is usually also the same day as the Norman city Christmas Parade. His Cub Scout Pack from school had a float in it again this year. What fun for the boys!

I'm very grateful he has such great friends and family who came to spend time with him on his special day. Hey Dey laser tag did NOT disappoint! 

She got to go on the Polar Express the Friday school was let out for Christmas break. She had so much fun & even got a bell of her very own!

She & I went to the Oklahoma City Ballet's production of "The Nutcracker". She amazed me, she watched and never complained about the length. This may become a new tradition.

The traditional throwing of the reindeer food!

Yep! This is the only picture of our Christmas presents. Guess what my New Year's Resolution is?!

New Year's Eve with our friends! What a fun way to ring in 2015!!!

Thanks for taking the time to check in on us! We love our family and friends and wish you a magical new year!

November...birthdays, Thanksgiving & more!

Well only 2 more months to document this year. I can hardly believe it! Maybe in 2015 I'll take the time to read something on how to improve my photos!

Until then we all can enjoy our antics from November, well at least the ones in which I remembered to take a photo of...

The first weekend of November typically presents a challenge of how-much-stuff-can-we-pack-into-1-day. This year our day went something like this: RTC played in a Fall Festival (the turkey earned a Superior ribbon). Then we were off to his last fall soccer game. Followed by La's birthday party and a family dinner...

La's birthday party...

The girls painted their own pottery pieces. These ladies were serious about their art!!! Everyone seemed to have a great time!

A few days later it was time to celebrate her actual day!

 Yes, that is an Elsa dress for a present...
Yes, she immediately put it on to eat her breakfast pancakes before school!

Legos from her brother & it came with assistance with assembly!

 Now it was time for Pack 221's Raingutter Regata!

All the boys seems to enjoy it and there weren't many tears!

As a bonus this year Mimi was down and happened to spend her birthday with us! We just had to celebrate, so we celebrated with cheesecake!!!
This was La's turkey in disguise! Pretty huh?
We went to the lighting of Chesapeake's 
Christmas lights...

Thanksgiving was spent in Wichita. 
We engaged in shooting & shopping. Those were separate things we did and we didn't shoot anyone while we shopped! :)

She looks less than enthused and she took a nap
soon after this photo was taken!

We were able to enjoy a date night! 

While Aunt P & Grammie took the kids to see 
Christmas lights! Thanks for the date night!

Oops! October

OK - I some how managed to not post about October, so let me make up for that oversight...

We were able to attend Family Camp held at Camp George Thomas. La looks forward to this every year because she really likes to camp! Lots of fun was had by all!

Then Last Frontier Council celebrated their 100th year, so RTC & Scott went and camped on a different weekend. RTC was able to meet Reed Timmer and represent their pack in the flag ceremony. So grateful for our 221 Pack friends!

WatchD.O.G.S is a program at our school and Scott served on Halloween. He had a great day with both kids. He enjoyed helping their teachers.

Finally it was Halloween! What fun to go trick-or-treating with friends! We had Princess Anna & a soldier this year. Now they're making plans for Halloween 2015!!
