Meeting Frosty the snowman! She loved hitting the button to put him up at night!
Enjoying "Jolly Days" at the children's museum...even Mommy, Daddy and Grandma Thompson enjoyed the slide with Katelynn
Stopped for a picture with Mrs. Santa
(to most this picture is no big deal...but for my Katelynn it is...she even stood by Santa this year too...no smile but she stood by him and talked to him. She has been SO SCARED of people in costumes and masks and even animals...but loves them from afar. But is getting so brave now. She tells me, "I not going to be scared, they're so nice (or so cute if it is an animal)" But I can tell she still is unsure at times...baby steps!)
Having fun pretending!
A Christmas gift for Katelynn's Sunday School teacher. Saw this idea in a Family Fun magazine and knew right away who I wanted to use it for! Sis. Shelia loved it. (Will post that picture later) Katelynn had a blast breaking all the crayons and tearing the paper off. (So much so that whenever the crayons are out now she continues to do it till I catch her) It was an easy craft and very inexpensive! (and yes, you take the glass out of the frame)
Helping Mommy with Christmas goodies. Making White Christmas Chocolate mix.
A Christmas project...a gingerbread house. A first for mommy and Katelynn. She had alot of fun...I think she had more fun eating the candy than putting it on the house.
A trip to the Children's museum with Nana and Mommy! Our passes have come in so handy, Katelynn has loved going and playing over and over!
My beautiful blessing! I can't explain how much JOY she has brought to my life!
Katelynn and her friend Dumus (who goes to our church and also works one day a week at the Children's Museum!) Katelynn was pretty excited to see someone she knew at the museum.
Enjoying a quiet moment at the museum, while Nana reads her a book
Her letter and coloring picture for Santa...she was excited to put it in the mailbox
The 1st of 2 Christmas weddings Jonathan Glick married his sweetheart known him since his mom was expecting him....also known his wife since she was a toddler. They had a beautiful spirit-filled wedding!
Katelynn was so excited about Christmas this year
My pretty grown-up Santa girl!
