Sorry for the lack of posts - ít seems like the last 6 weeks or so have been a challenge. In addition to being busy at work, someone in the house has been coughing probably non-stop the entire 6 weeks. And it rotates who it is. Last night it was a tag-team effort. We've also been through two stomach virus tours of duty two weeks apart. Is it spring yet?
I turned 40 not too long ago and the girls had a blast getting down at my birthday party. They were pretty much the featured dancers the first couple hours.
We visited Santa a couple weeks ago. Lily's been asking for a stable for her horse. Madeleine surprised us all and asked for stilts. We went back later in the afternoon and were able to take Lily on a carriage ride before going to the Town of Cary tree lighting.
Then this past weekend the girls got to participate in their first parade. We signed up to walk with their school float in the Cary Christmas Parade. Madeleine rode on the float, but Lily walked behind with me and really enjoyed walking and throwing candy to the crowd. We were located about halfway through the parade, so we got to watch the second half on our way back to the car.
Disney on Ice and our usual performance of the Nutcracker fell on the same weekend this year, so the girls picked Disney. They dressed up as their favorite princesses (Rapunzel and Ariel).
And Sunday night we did manage to get the tree up so that Lily could participate in her favorite Christmas tradition - the tree. It was her turn to put the angel on this year.
