Pump It Up time

PJ day at school
So Addisyn had a 2 week break from school and I and 2 week break from watching the little kids I watch on Tuesday and Thursday so it just so happened Daddy was not busy with work so we have been having some fun times around here. Also we got a surprise visit from our beloved cousin who drove in from Arizona. The girls were so excited(we were too of course). They came for a quick trip but anytime we get with them is great!
We went to Pump it Up with them and had a blast! We had slumber party over here with them and then the girls and I went to princess playtime where they got their hair, nails, and make up done. Ok, so they asked Addisyn if she wanted her hair to be straight or curly and she chose straight. Wow, that is all I have to say, check out the pics and you will see why I said wow! You will see super dad meet me up there. He is such a good dad. It was open to the public so I figured there would be a lot of people there, but we were the only ones so I pleaded for him to come up and meet me.
We also hit up the children's museum and lots of time at Grandma's. The girls also got to spend the night at GeGa's and look at Christmas lights with her and drink hot coco. We have been busy.
Next will be the Christmas post!

Addi preforms ad MORE ear infections

Being Silly! I love Addisyn's eyes

Waiting at the doctors office

This ear hurts

This is my sister

About to preform.
We had a busy weekend. Addisyn had 2 performances. She sang at her "Breakfast with Santa" at her school. Video below, please bare with the bad filming, I was holding Cambry and trying to film. The we headed off to watch her gymnastics debut. She did really great. There were tons of people there and her group was the first to go on. What a change from last year! She would not even sing last year but this year, front row performing little Queen. She told me she is done with gymnastics but she wants to do cheerleading(I did not push that) so I told her she needs to keep up gymnastics if she wants to do cheerleading. I was really big into cheerleading and not to toot my own horn but caught on really easily and I was pretty good. I thought Cambry would follow in my footsteps but if Addisyn wants to try I am all for it. Kind of, it is very expensive to have them do all-stars at a young age. We will cross that bridge when we get there!
Thursday Addisyn was complaining her ear hurt so I made an appointment for Friday. But she was complaining all day so we decided to go that night. They have this after hours doctors office which my girls now love cause they give you a Popsicle and you get to go to the treasure box on the way out! But Addisyn did have a double ear infection. Well Saturday Cambry had fever and was acting really grumpy. So she said her ear hurt but I was thinking she just wanted to go to the doctor like Addisyn. On Thursday she was really sad the doctor did not "doctor her". But she had an ear infection as well and both girls go Popsicles and treasure box treats again. Poor girls, I thought we had grown out of these ear infections. But glad to say they are a lot less grumpy this week:)

We went to Bass Pro shop who has a Santa and gives a picture away for free. We go there every year. The girls love that store. It is kind of like going to the zoo for them. It is a really neat store with all kinds of stuffed animals(real, not kids stuffed animals) and a huge fish tank. This year we went with 4 other families. It was really fun to see all the kids reaction. Some cried, well lots cried but our 2 were at the age this year where they were really excited and told Santa what they wanted. Addisyn wants Penbo a robot penguin and Cambry wants a walking baby!
Saturday we saw Santa at Addisyn's school where they hosted breakfast with Santa and Mrs. Clause. They were so at ease with them and hugged them both. It was really cute.

What a week it has been. I turned 30 on Monday!!! Addisyn had a school performance on Tuesday. We had a lot of time to hang out with Gee Ga this week cause she was not working. We went to the movies and decorated for Christmas.
Thanksgiving we headed over to Gee Ga's for Brunch and made ginger bread houses. The girls loved it and are still snacking on the candy for their desserts!!! Addisyn sure wishes she put more Hersey kisses on hers. Then we headed over to Brady's grandparents house and enjoyed some more yummy food!
Of course I did some black Friday shopping but did not have to many items to get but did get all the items I was on the prowl for. Then it was such a great day, we headed to the zoo for a bit and now we are trying t figure out what to do with the rest of our long weekend! Brady was not able to decorate outside cause our friend who has our ladder is out of town to Monday so hopefully Weds.
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!

Sweet Mollie
We did our1/2 marathon this weekend and we survived. We did pretty good. Not as great as I wanted to do but hey not training might be the reason. We ran almost all the miles and walked for a 3/4 of a mile. I think I could have ran the whole thing but walked with my hubby for a bit since he was doing this for me. My time was 2:33 and his was 2:35. I left him at the last mile cause I realized I was not going to make my time of under 2:30 but I guess I should have left him a bit earlier. It was a great experience and it was just so well put together. Next year we are going to do the relays with our moms. We will run and do the first 7.5 miles and meet them and walk the rest of it with them. I think it is neat.
I also got a big surprise on Friday. I was instructed by my husband that he was going to come home at 1 and we were going to do something fun for my birthday. So I went to the gym in the AM and then came home got ready for my surprise and had a few minutes to sit down and watch a quick show and dozed off for a second... then my doorbell was ringing and I went downstairs to answer it and to my surprise it was my BFF since 5th grade with her 8 month old that I had not met standing at the door. It was so neat of them to pull it off with out me knowing. So we go to hang out with each other all weekend. It was fun. What a great weekend. My birthday is not even until next Monday but I am sure getting spoiled for my 30th birthday.
