Christmas Eve at the Beach

Our favorite place to take a picture! The shark mouth! Half our pictures turned out a little blurry this year but that is what you get when you ask a 20 something male to use your iphone to take a picture....not the best quality. I made us stop at the Christmas store even though we didn't even buy anything. It just seemed like the thing to do on Christmas Eve!

Here are a few pictures from the Aquarium.

And then a few from the beach.

And lunch at our favorite beach place, Mo's. It is a funny tradition to go over to the beach on Christmas Eve but it has turned into one of our most favorite things to do! And it tires the kids out for the LONG night ahead!

12 Days of Christmas

So we started our twelve days of Christmas surprises from Grandma and Grandpa Moyes on Sunday. This is such a fun tradition that we LOVE and are so thankful that grandma puts so much time and energy into putting this together for us every year. We love you Grandma! Here are a few pictures in random order because I can't move them for some reason.

This year grandpa had a special present for everyone, John Deer pillowcases! WE LOVE THEM! I would really like to know if grandpa really sewed these?? I am extremely impressed if you did! And still totally love them if you didn't! But they are embroidered with a little saying of Grandpa says good night. Maddy said it was glow-in-the-dark but I haven't confirmed that yet. Dustin thought they were sleeping bags at first.....jk.

One night was a couple of bedtime stories and hot chocolate. Here Maddy is reading the 12 Days of Christmas, how appropriate.

Here everyone is eating their yummy brownie treat!
We are having to much fun! Thanks grandma and grandpa!

Aprons galore

My little chefs! For Christmas my mom got everyone aprons! Ok maybe not the one Dustin is wearing but even he admitted that he really enjoyed wearing it even though it said girls just want to have fun.

The girls were so excited to wear them especially Maddy. She literally wears hers all day every day. She took it to a sleepover and then I even had to intervene when she was going to wear it school the other day!

I love this picture of my twins.

My mom wasn't originally going to get an apron for Ivy cause she is just so little but my friend was making them for us and she threw in this little apron for Ivy as an extra present and I have to say it is about the cutest thing I have ever seen! Hers and Maddy's match except Maddy's says Short Stack and Ivy's says Baby Cakes! So Cute!!

Of course Lilly got the sparkly sassy wipe clean apron.
And we went for the bug jar theme for Josey.
This picture cracks me up because everyone is so true to life. These are the stages that all my girls are in. If you look at each one of them you will see who they are right now. It is priceless!
And my sweet Maddy in her favorite article of clothing.
Thanks mom! This was a perfect Christmas present!

random Ivy

Dustin finally downloaded all the pictures off his phone! I don't know why but I don't seem to be able to keep track of the camera much these days. So here are a few random shots of little Ivy getting so big!
Ivy has started LOVING her bath. If she just sees the bathtub she will start whimpering to get in!
She has also discovered the big blocks and these have become a favorite as well.

And doughnuts.....the girl is addicted!

And last but not least.......snow globes. What little girl doesn't love snow globes though? Especially one that swirls the snow on it's own and plays lovely little music box Christmas music? She saw this at Home Depot and I just couldn't leave the store without making it hers.

That smile is why.

Good-Looking Couples Likely to Have Daughters.....

So my sister sent this to me the other day and I just HAD to post it here seeing as I have 4 daughters and 0 sons..... and since I get comments every other day about how sorry people are for my husband and that they are so sorry for me because I am going to have 4 teenage daughters and they constantly ask me if I am going to keep trying to get that boy.....and if you can't tell is gets REALLY ANNOYING!..... here is my new comeback:

I am going to direct them to this study: http://ibnlive.in.com/news/goodlooking-couples-likely-to-have-daughters/136509-19-93.html?from=tn
And then I am going to tell them that it's okay that I have only daughters because I still love them even though they are not boys......SHOCKER......and that according to this study I am a good looking woman and there is NO SHAME IN THAT! And then I am going to ask them if they have more girls or boys.....better yet maybe I will just tell them that I am guessing they have more boys....if you get my drift! :)
