Random Thoughts Tuesday

**Olivia was evaluated in gymnastics to see if she could join the Hot Shots class and she made it!!  I was so excited for her. We do need to practice a lot at home, but she should really enjoy this harder class.  (It is an invitation only class.)  The girls get matching leotards to wear and they do mini competitions.  

**Reese is getting better at talking.  She said the other day (very dramatic and with hand motions to boot), "I play church, throw ball!"

**Will LOVES our train under the Christmas tree.  He could sit for hours watching it go around and around. We just added another circle track and a new engine that has the conductors talking to each other - pretty cool.

**Olivia sang for the first time in church this past Sunday.  The Cherub Choir sang 2 songs.  It was so cute.  They even wear mini robes!  Here she is before her performance.  

**Olivia and I went to see The Nutcracker this past weekend.  We had such a good time.  We went for the first time last year and both times she loved the entire show.  She really liked that there was a story to follow along with and the fact that the girls wore pretty costumes and danced really neat!

**We took our Christmas card picture.  We decided to duplicate last years photo by having the kids wear Santa hats.  This year, we put them in their jammies and had them sit in front of the tree.  

**Going to visit Santa in a couple of days.  I am thinking that this year's Santa picture will be full of tears.  Reese will probably freak out and scream - we'll see.  I am sure I'll be posting the picture for all to view!

Enough rambling for now - 
Happy Tuesday!
