Makes My Monday: A Pageant, A Nut, and A Tickle

There was a children’s pageant at our church yesterday. Since Maggie is the only one who will go to Sunday school – she was the only one in it! While Mike was at work, I took all 3 kids with me. Thank goodness I sat beside VP so I could sneak up and see that Maggie was okay in the front while leaving the boys with her. (She also took the following picture on my phone ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks VP!!) We didn’t make it through the whole thing, but we did get to see Maggie’s part.

Before the pageant, we hit Target and purchased a much-asked-for-after-Saturday-night Nutcracker. Maggie was dancing around with it this morning ๐Ÿ™‚

And lastly, Maggie was a big girl today and got her hair washed before getting it cut…except that she couldn’t stop giggling because it ticked. Which totally cracked me and Ms. Hairdresser up.

It Tickles!!

Who knew I’d be talking about Maggie for all of those? ๐Ÿ˜‰ All three, totally Make My Monday.

Cheryl over at Twinfatuation hosts this one. Head on over to see what else makes peopleโ€™s Mondays (there are always some really good ones!)

Baby Picture Sundays

This week’s theme is: It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas. Fun!!

We did a whole bunch of Christmas things yesterday. First, we decorated the tree.

This goes right here...


Where do these go?

I'll show you!

Then, Maggie and I got ready to go to a local-ish production of the Nutcracker. (Maggie’s first time!!) It wasn’t professional, but it wasn’t some mom-an-pop production either. (Only 4 ballerinas fell… ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

Off to the Nutcracker

We were in the 3rd row!!

Soooo sick - but loving the show

I asked Maggie at intermission if she wanted to go home or watch more. She DEFINITELY wanted more. (She wanted more when the show was over LOL!) She’s got a major cold though, so she was quite the trooper…especially as the show started at 6pm…close to bed time!

And … it turned out that one of my former Girl Scouts was in the production! She was pretty good too ๐Ÿ™‚

And what were the boys doing while we were off gallivanting? Putting the train together!
