Ornament Exchange!

Christin at The Southern Wife blog hosted an ornament exchange!

I received my ornament this week and it is SUPER cute and has already found a spot on our tree!  Elizabeth couldn't have picked a better ornament for me!

I hope Hannah receives her ornament soon and loves it as much as I love mine!

Thanks Christin for hosting a great swap!

Snow Days!

As soon as the flurries started falling Ellie was ready to go outside.  The snow this round is beautiful but it is FREEZING outside….wind chills in the single digits to below zero!  As much as she was impressed with the snow and enjoyed playing she was unimpressed that she doesn't have school on Friday! I did take my camera outside but haven't unloaded any pics.  Here are a few from my phone!

Elfie Returns

I never quite know when our elf, Elfie should return. I think last year he arrived on December 1st so that's what we are sticking with this year. Last year was our first year to introduce the elf so I'm not sure what Ellie will remember. We have talked about him this year so I know she will be excited to see him in the morning! He's arriving with a few treats and a special breakfast!

Orr Family Farm

Earlier in October Ellie's entire school took a field trip to Orr Family Farm.  It was nice because you were free to do your own thing but that also made it hard to meet up/see any of the other families!  Right when we arrived we met up with Gibson and Claire…two of the other kids from her class.  We rode the hayride and picked pumpkins with them.  We had planned to then meet at the petting zoo after a quick bathroom break.  However, Ellie saw the ponies and wanted to go for a ride, Claire wanted to play on the playground and Gibson was ready to see the animals so we got split up at that point.  It was still a long fun day!

Halloween 2013

For Halloween this year Ellie wanted to be a cat….not just any cat but a WHITE cat.  She saw the kitty costume in Pottery Barn Kids and didn't stop talking about it for over a month.  I tried to get her to like other cat costumes (cheetah, black and white, etc) mainly because they were all significantly cheaper than the white kitty!  I also thought it would be easy to find a different WHITE costume but apparently not.  I waited until I had a coupon and just about missed out…all they had left was a size smaller than I would have typically ordered her! It was a LITTLE short but we made do with some thicker leggings.  I have to say it was pretty cute!

She had a carnival and party at school on Wednesday.  On Halloween we went to our local high school…if you donate a bag of candy you can trick or treat the hallways and then they have a carnival at the end for the kids!  She LOVED the bounce houses, bowling and the fishing game!  We had a great time and it starts early so we were still able to come home and pass out candy.

A Day Out With Thomas

A few weeks ago while Steven was away at the OU vs Notre Dame game Ellie and I went to the Oklahoma Railway Museum for a Day Out With Thomas.  I had heard from a few different people that the event was a little unorganized and a lot overpriced.  I am going to have to agree!!  I had discount coupons so it was a fun treat but not something I think we will be doing again! After Thomas we enjoyed lunch at Saturn Grill one of our absolute favorites!

Ellie's First Field Trip

Last Friday Ellie's school had a field trip to the fire station here in town!  Since she is just in the three year old class all parents were required to attend with their child! To say we had fun would be an understatement! She loved climbing in the trucks, ringing the bell on the front and listen to them talk about their gear and how they wear it!  Thankfully it was cool this morning so we didn't roast in the heat!

This fake cheese face is the look I'm getting these days when I try to take her pic!  She was STARVING when we left the fire station....apparently so much so that she needed to eat the grapes at the grocery store!  She took the best nap that afternoon....I mean just look at that hair and ornery face must be the sign of a good nap!

Preschool II

Ellie started her first day as a three year old in Preschool II at Yukon Kids First. This is the same school that she went to their two year old program for a few months earlier this year. Yukon Kids First is at Yukon First United Methodist Church and they have a program that goes from 2 all the way through Kindergarten! She goes to school M, W and F just in the mornings! As I attempted to take a back to school pictures these out takes were the best I could get!

Be sure and check out A Lavender Lining!
