Girls' Dance, Christmas, Laynee's 7th Birthday

Girls' Dance Performance
This year we had Laynee and Kyrie in dance.  The morning of their dance performance I woke up sick :( so Clint had to take them to dress rehearsal this year.  I usually love going to the rehearsal because it's when I get the best pictures, but I think Clint did a good job.

 Both of my cute little dancers,  They are in separate classes because of their ages but their costumes ended up strangely alike.

 Of course the day before the performance Kyrie got a scratch on the end of her nose, so she had a huge scab for pictures and the performance.

 Laynee's class,  I'm not sure why Clint didn't get one of Laynee posing by herself.

This was just after Kyrie's performance. Clint's mom bought her and Laynee flowers.  Kyrie walked up and down the isle where our family was sitting and made everyone smell them. 

 I was really nervous that once the curtain opened Kyrie would not dance, She is so shy and doesn't really like a lot of attention.  But she didn't even hesitate she went all out.  The last part of Kyrie's performance all the girls blew a big kiss to the audience, Kyrie's kiss was super enthusiastic!  I almost started crying it was so cute.

 Santa was the surprise guest at the end of the dancing.

 The girls got to pick stuff out of his bag.  Kyrie picked out a baby rattle but she loved it so much.

 Laynee's performance.

I let the girls wear a little makeup and by the end of the night Laynee had mascara running under her eyes.  So that is why she looks so tired.

I'm so proud of them,  they both did a great job.

This is what Santa brought us for Christmas.

 Laynee got 5 Monster High dolls and a Lalaloopsy silly hair doll.

 Kyrie got Bucky from Jake and the Neverland Pirates and his pirate friends, and a Lalaloopsy doll.

 Britlee got a Fur-Real puppy and a puppy house with 4 little puppies in it.

 I got a purse and some socks and Clint got this Mario race track.

 So many presents

 Laynee had only asked Santa for one Monster High doll so she was super excited when she saw five of them.

Kyrie really wanted this pirate ship,  she had to stop and look at it every time we saw it at the store.

 Britlee is super obsessed with animals, especially puppies.  She really loves taking these in and out of their house.

 The girls were also really excited to play with Daddies new race track.  If they pushed the buttons too hard the little Mario and Luigi would fly off the side of the track and Kyrie thought that was too hilarious.

 Laynee with her haul!  What a spoiled, but happy little kid.

 Kyrie with her toys!  One of the other things she wanted really bad was Hungry Hungry Hippos, We have played that game many times since!

 Britlee never got tired of opening presents,  I was really worried that she would because Kyrie did last year, but she wanted more and more,  she actually ended up opening most of daddies as well.

Laynee's 7!
I cant believe that this little girl is 7years old!  She is getting so big, and just keeps getting more and more pretty!  This is the outfit we let her open the morning of her birthday.

 Family party,  This is that bath foam stuff,  she got this from her Grandpa Darin.  I'm not sure why she loves this stuff so much!? :)

 Lipgloss from Kyrie

 Barbie from Kyler

 She got this whole bath kit from Chris and Jayden.  She loves pampering herself.

 This picture isn't very good,  Me and Clint got her a 3DS and she wasn't sure what it was at first so she doesn't look that excited,  but she freaked out once she realized.  It came with a Mario game and she has almost beat it already!  I'm super surprised she is way better then me!  She must get it from her Daddy.

 She wrote a Birthday song for herself and then preformed it for everyone at the party,  It was so stinking cute and brave of her.  Here are the lyrics 
"It's my Birthday, Yeah its my Birthday!
Everyone likes their presents they get,
I like my presents I get too."

Blowing out the candles!

 On Saturday she had a friend party,  we ended up inviting almost everyone in her class.  About 15 kids came.

 This is her Friend Dominic,  She talks about him all the time!  I'm so happy he could make it.  He seemed really goofy, kind of like the class clown.  I see why Laynee gets along with him so well.  She loves laughing.

 This is Staley,  Her best Friend this year in school.  These two are almost always together.

 Dance party,  We played freeze dance.

 Happy Birthday Laynee!  I love you so so much!

Leaves, Halloween, and Disneyland

Our new house has tons of trees in the yard, so this is the first year we have ever had to rake leaves.  We got a huge pile and the girls just had to go jump in them.  They had so much fun!

 Laynee jumping in!

 Kyrie jumping in!

 All of us in the leaves

This year for Halloween,  Laynee was a Princess (of course), Kyrie was a Super Hero (she told me she wanted to be a super hero months before this but I really struggled,  Last year she was Scooby Doo and people kept calling her a boy even though I sewed bows on scooby's ears.  So I was worried, but I think I made a good girl super hero costume, at least no one called her a boy that I'm aware of.) and Britlee was a bumblebee! 

 This was the first snow of the season,  The kids all got to go out and play in it, but we made the babies stay inside.

 All dressed up in their snow gear

We are so lucky that my mother in-law took our whole family to Disneyland!  It was so awesome the kids had a blast, and so did me and Clint.  We stayed in a hotel just across the street so we walked to Disneyland each day.

 Britlee and Bella.  Britlee decided that she really loved Bella on this trip, she was happy as long as she was in her arms.

 It was the week before Thanksgiving so Disneyland was all decked out for Christmas!  It was really pretty,  I loved all of the decor.

 The new cars land.  All of the cars rides were super fun, they had the whole street from the movie it looked really authentic.

 This was Laynee's favorite part!  She loves Belle the most and was talking about her the whole time!  When they actually got to meet her she just stared and her and didn't say anything.  This was the first time I saw Laynee speechless.

 We got to go to a character breakfast one day, the girls got autograph books for them to sign.  Captain Hook was especially funny,  he kept pretending to take Laynee's Tinkerbell hat off and stomp on it.

 Tigger, Captain Hook and Rafiki all got into a huge war and were doing silly things to each other.  Kyrie thought it was hilarious.

 Britlee loved all the characters,  But Eeyore was by far her favorite.  She kept pointing at him and saying puppy,  then she would pet him when he came close.  This was one of my favorite pictures of Britlee,  she just looked so genuinely happy.

 Kyrie in her Mickey hat.

 The whole family got hats.  Clint really wanted this Captain Jack Sparrow hat,  Honestly I was embarrassed at first to be with him, haha,  but he actually pulled it off very well.

 The last day that we were there was Mickey Mouse's Birthday!  We were wondering why it was so much busier then the other days.  Kyrie said that meeting Mickey was her favorite part.  On the plane ride home she kept saying,  "I wish we could just live in Disneyland forever with Mickey."

 I was a little surprised at how much the girls loved Toon Town,  they were going crazy in this area.  Running through everyones houses, they loved it.

 After the firework display it started "snowing" (it was really foam)  Everyone was dancing in it!

 Britlee was fast asleep by this time. 

 We had such a great time!  I am so grateful that we were able to come.

Decorating the Tree
The kids were super hyper the night we decorated the tree,  we got some silly pictures.
