A Fun December

We had tons of fun last month getting ready for Christmas.  The girls got to decorate graham cracker houses a couple of times.
We saw Santa at our ward party.  Ben was prepared with his list. 
Lily did her house all on her own.  Maggie put more candy on her plate then her house.
I volunteered at Ben's school party to help the kids make snowman cookies. 
The girls made some too after school.
I had plenty of fun myself getting ready for Christmas.  If only working at Santa's workshop was an actual profession I would be in heaven.  The plan was to make a wedding dress for Barbie, but I couldn't stop at one.
Maggie loves to dress up her stuffed animals so I thought this was very creative.  
We LOVE Aunt Melissa's pedicures.  
Christmas Eve with cousins and new pj's from Grandma!
Christmas Morning!!!
It was a Barbie Christmas for the girls and another Lego Christmas for Ben.

Someone has eyes for Ken.

Guess Who's a Sunbeam!

 Lily!!! Lily turned three in November so she is a younger Sunbeam at church, but she did great and loved her new class. 
 We celebrated her Birthday the day before Thanksgiving so family could be there.  She was spoiled with tons of gifts including her very own Barbie stuff!

 It was so fun watching her open her presents because she made lots of excited gasping noises.  It was pretty cute.

 The kids had fun eating the cake especially the sugar cubes, yuck!  I guess I ate a couple of those too when I was a kid.  It's funny how your sugar tolerance changes when you grow up. 
 After cake, Lily got into her new Princess Sofia nightgown and got right to playing.  I love how she plays with her toys.  She has such a cute imagination and is just all girl! We love, love, love you!!

Maggie's Barbie Party

 Once again I had WAY too much fun making the birthday cake.  I was so happy Maggie finally got into Barbies so I could make it! 

 The entertainment for the night was watching the kids dress up and get into the Barbie box for a photo shoot.
 Ken's little brother pirate Warren.  He'll thank me later for not posting the picture of him in a dress.
 Little Sis LuLu
 Slumber time Barbie
 Darth Vader Barbie
 Hollywood Barbies
 Cake time!
 Present time! Purse and rings from Grandma and Grandpa
 New Barbies from friends!
 The Stephenson family tradition... Heavy Heavy Hangover.  Maggie was good at this and wished everyone good things so she only got soft bumps on the head. 
 A pretty necklace from Aunt Mel
 And of course Lego Friends!
 Happy Birthday Beautiful Girl!
