Christmas Day started at 7:20 a.m. Adiee woke me up saying "Mom, I think I hear something... I think it's Santa...I hope he brought me my black horse...I dreamed about it all night!" Adiee isn't the quietest little thing, so her sisters were up minutes after her! :) Santa brought Mikenna a dollhouse, Adiee a Radio Flyer spring horse, and Isla a princess tower that turns into a table and chairs...all of which were a huge hit! We opened presents for about an hour and a half (funny how it takes twice as long to wrap all that! haha!)

We gave them their very own roll of wrapping paper, tape, bag of bows, and safety scissors...then let them loose! Mikenna LOVED it, and Adiee needed a little bit of help. :) The result was the best looking wrap-jobs that I have ever seen! An item surrounded by shiny red paper, then rolled in tape! I love it!! :)
They are absolutely precious!!

Happy Birthday Love!!
It was also parent-participation day for Mikenna's tap class, and she told everyone that it was her daddy's birthday, so the kids and their parents all sang to him and gave him his very own ribbon! ;)

"Mrs. Geise tied a magic invisible string around it and pulled it out! And it didn't even hurt!!"

I had just got home from dropping Mikenna off at school, barely pulled into the driveway, when I got a call from Kasey. He told me that a coworker was taking him to the hospital, and of course I panicked and asked him who, what, when, where, why and how in a matter of minutes! :) He told me that it wasn't serious and to put the baby down for a nap and get Adiee ready for tumbling - which is what was on the agenda for that day, and he would call me when he knew more. He spent about 3 1/2 hours in the ER, while I was running around town doing my errands. We pulled up at the exact same time - weird, haha :-) My poor husband got out of the truck with crutches and a fat lip.
What happened was he and a few coworkers were changing a man climber(?) when it slipped off of a platform 250 feet in the air and fell 10 feet - with Kasey in it. Ugh, it absolutely makes me sick thinking about it - he had fall protection on so if it were to keep going he wouldn't have gone with it, but still!! Yikes!! The bucket fell until the cable caught, jerking his whole body. His foot was badly sprained, he smacked his face on the edge biting through his lip and chipping a tooth. And to top it off, also got whip lash.
Can you all believe that he went to work the next day? I felt so bad for him, when he got home you could just tell he was in immense pain. I told him to call the guys and tell them that he wasn't going to make it in the next day, he needed to rest and get better. My poor hubby!! :-(
Thank goodness he's alright!!! And yes, that makes a second ER trip in a week or two... Jeez!

Mikenna picked a bride costume - which totally suits her because she is obsessed with finding her "prince charming" and getting married. She always asks me if she can marry daddy... It's funny because I say, "No, I am already married to daddy." And she tells me, "Mom, you need to share!" Haha!
Adiee Grace had such a hard time picking just one. She went through all sorts of costumes (I basically followed her and hung up the last costume she was replacing...) until she found an angel costume -complete with a halo and wings. It totally suits her because after all, she is our little angel! :)
Isla was a lady bug. We already had the costume from when Mikenna was little - I wanted to use it again because it was just adorable and more importantly WARM!
Mikenna and Adiee loved their costumes so much that they wore them everyday when we were home, from the time we got them til the big day! The weekend before Halloween, we went to the rec center where they hold an annual carnival with games and a haunted house. Then on Friday, Adiee's preschool had a Halloween Party where they went trick-or-treating through the building, did a couple games and crafts, then had a snack! I felt so bad for Mikenna this year because her school didn't have a party, she couldn't even wear her costume to school which was a major bummer! Poor girl! On Halloween we were quite the busy little family... We stopped at my mom's house to trick-or-treat and then stopped at my grandma's. After we were done there, we went to Kasey's brother's house and went trick-or-treating around the neighborhood. Although the weather was clear, it was still freezing because the wind was ridiculous. When we decided that enough was enough, we made our last stop at the elk's lodge for some more Halloween fun, my cousin was helping out at the party there and wanted us to stop by. The girls participated in a few games before we went home and then to BED!!
Whew! Why do we do this to ourselves?? :)
Pictures to follow~

We put miss Isla went to bed around 7:30, like every other night; but woke me up around 1 in the morning. She didn't have a fever really so I cuddled her for a couple minutes and layed her back down. She awoke again shortly after I fell back asleep. I figured she was fine so I was going to leave her alone for a while - let her work it out herself. She wasn't going to cooperate and just go back to sleep, so I went and got her from her room. She stopped crying after I picked her up, but her breathing was so labored, and she had developed a cough that was very dry and unproductive...even painful sounding.
Isn't that the saddest thing?? This breaks my heart, but makes me laugh at the same time! She was actually being goofy - she didn't like the mist in her face so she closed her eyes and was making faces... What a trooper! :)

To wrap up the field trip, they took a group picture in the carriage. They all got a souvenir horseshoe and Adiee had collected a feather and a branch with yellow leaves on it, on her own. I think I should also add that she got 2 shots yesterday and a wart froze off, no tears!! Our little girls are so tough!!

And today after school, Mrs. Geise made a point to come out and congratulate me on how well Mikenna did on her recitation (a memorized 12-line poem). She said she was very impressed, because not only did she know all the words, but she said it with such character and at a volume that the entire class could enjoy listening to it! Mrs. Geise tried to make an example of Mikenna, tried to get her to do it again, but she got all bashful... She gave Mikenna a sticker for a job well done, she is the only one that got one too! That's my girl!!
And now, Mikenna and her daddy are at her tap dance class...
Mikenna, you never fail to impress!!! We love you so!

I don't know if you can all tell, but Mikenna just loves the camera!
She's happy to show off her new leotard and dance shoes!! :)
