Dancing Queen

Averi started taking dance lessons in the Summer and has LOVED it! This is her and Doug on her very first day. She was a little nervous. The first time around we didn't go with any friends so she didn't know anyone in her class. She did great, though! She walked right in and did everything she was supposed to. She tried not to smile on her way out of class but I could tell she had fun.:)
 Like I said... She was a little nervous:

 The next session she had two friends (Austen and McKenna) that wanted to join the fun. She LOVED having some familiar faces in there with her.
Watching how it's done:
 Waiting to receive a sticker at the end of class.
The Ballet/Jazz class was full at the new year (we were too late signing the girls up) so we switched them to Ballet/Tap. She gets to wear cute little black TAP shoes! She always tells me to "look at her feet" when she is dancing for me at home so I figured Tap would be perfect for her :)
Avers and Kennas - BFFS
 Cute little tappers getting the "Intro to Tap" speech by spunky Mr. Roberts
 And I just had to throw in a darling shot of Kadence. We went to the store one day and she insisted on taking all three of her babies. This is her in baby heaven:
Love my girly girls!

Christmas Day!

Santa brought a LOT of fun stuff!

As expected, Averi woke up first at around 7am. We made her wait a little bit (to see if K would wak up) and then finally let her go downstairs to see what Santa brought. The big items were a BIG pink barbie doll house and a BIG princess Twilight Sparkles pony that sings.
This house makes all kinds of cool sound effects and has real lights on the porch!
Kadence woke up around 8am and came downstairs to join us. Doug made us all his famous homemade doughnuts; a skill he picked up as Scout Master. This is a new tradition as of this year, and so far we all love it.
I got to make the glaze :)
Santa brought Kadence a Poppity-pop Musical Dino and a baby Pinkie Pie Pony.

They both got matching dresses like this from Grandma H

Since we had been inside all day, we decided we wanted to go OUT for dinner. We soon found out that almost all restaurants are closed for Christmas evening. It makes sense I guess, we just didn't think of it. Anyways, we finally found that Arriba's was open so we decided that Mexican food sounded great! 
I had to put them in their new dresses! :)
I definitely couldn't have asked for cuter girls!
Another memorable and sweet Christmas with the greatest family a girl could ask for!
