Didn't Make the Cut

I made our Christmas cards online last night and thought I would share with you a few of the pictures that didn't make the cut. Kennedy has her "picture look" of tilting her head to the side which she thinks is oh so cute, and Ansley is just plain ornery.

Special Person Day

Today was K.I.S.S. day at Kennedy's school (Kids Invite Someone Special). They suggest inviting a grandparent, but I think it's not called Grandparent's Day for those kids (like Kennedy) who don't have grandparents in town. While Kennedy really wanted Mommy, Daddy and Ansley all to come, we talked her into picking one special person. Her class has 19 kids, and is not in a huge space, and we knew it would be super crowded and we didn't really want to have to keep Ansley from getting into everything. She decided since Mommy got to go to her Fall Party, and will probably go to her Winter Party too, that she would like Daddy to go to school with her today. These are a couple of pictures from their morning.

What She Does in Quiet Time

Kennedy stopped napping over a year ago, but in order to preserve my sanity (and take an occasional nap myself), I still make her have a quiet time while Ansley is napping. She has recently during quiet time, began changing her clothes. Each day she comes down from her quiet time, and I'm always curious as to what she'll be wearing. Her princess dresses are not in her bedroom, so those are not an option. Instead, she typically picks out some sort of summery dress or skirt to wear. This is what she came down in today. She was so excited how well the tights and shoes went with the outfit. What do you think?

Thanksgiving Spirit

If you are on Facebook, you may have seen my post this week about how Kennedy came home with this hat from preschool and told me pilgrims were little people who pinched you if you didn't wear green. She was confusing them with leprechauns (obviously), based on the hat she made.

However, tonight her and Ansley got in their "boats" to watch a video and Kennedy put on her hat and said "We are pilgrims in our boats going across the sea!", so I guess she wasn't completely confused on what pilgrims were...of course her former history teacher mommy did spend some time reteaching about them!

Lucky Number 7?

Ansley loves to count, but apparently doesn't like the number 7. Here is a video of her showing off.
