It's Official.... We have a crawler!

Avalena is now CRAWLING.... Oh no!!!  We figured that she would have it down by Christmas.  She is finding that everyday she can get faster and can move where she wants.  Now with all this crawling she has also realized that she wants more than just breast-milk and that "FOOD"  is not so bad.  She is growing up way too FAST!  Now if we can just keep her big sisters little toys off the floor so she doesn't choke on what she finds in her exploring adventures!

Tonight was the Christmas Dance Recital for the Girls.  This year we changed dance studio's.  Where they go now we are not able to watch them practice so.... It was fun getting to see them dance.  Gracelyn has shown even more improvement than in the past.  She was not looking at her other team mates for where she was supposed to be.  She even had a fun spotlight at the end with her splits! 
Abigail was adorable.  I regret our pictures.... We got Abigail on video but we failed to snap some pictures while she was dancing!  She did great though!  She has the cutest little hip shake!  The above photos where taken after the make was fresh on and right before we left!  What cute girls!

Gracelyn also recently decided to join the Beginning Cheer Team at the Dance Studio.  She did awesome at that as well....  Here is her Picture with her ending pose! (Picture Below) What a Doll!

Our Candy Cane Garden

Our Elf Elyse Santa Elf... Paid us a visit and brought us the material needed to make our own Candy Canes like they do at the North Pole.  Each Girl planted their Candy Cane Seeds...... Now we get to see how long it takes to grow our Candy Canes.  They grow by how good they are being.  This will be fun!

Life is Rough!

It must be hard to be a BABY!  What a Beauty!

Sleeping in the Jumper!

I Love it when they fall asleep in their toys:)   This happened when I was working but I received this picture while I was at work!  It makes me wish I was home with them when I see cute pictures like this while working!  I am very grateful to have my job though!

I Want One!!!

 This is a cool new furniture idea hand made by my Step Dad... He creates the best things.  I have been lucky to receive some of his creations.  From a baby bassinet to the dresser drawers (pictured below).  He emailed me the latest creation of this TOY BOX...  With 3 little girls... it would be a great Christmas Gift ( hint.. hint.)  He is selling them and asked to me to pass along.  Thought I would post for others to see.
He will personalize them too!
This dresser is the bomb.  It was made per my specifications.  You CANNOT buy these big, solid, deep drawers in any furniture store.  I love that it will last forever... if the kids don't color on it:)

Soda Pop ...

Avalena was very interested in a pop drink.  She almost got a sip.  Not quite up the straw.  I was very surprised she almost got some.  The little stink does not like bottles... so I guess dad should take note that if the bottles does not work... the coke will!

T.V. is a good nestling spot

Nestled away on the T.V. is a good way to see all the action in the Mott house.  Here Alyse Santa Elf will be able to see who is Naughty or who is Nice!

7 Months old Today!

7 months ago we welcomed this beautiful baby girl in our home!  She has added some spunk and increased the demands of the family.  She is so beautiful and we LOVE her very much.  She is definitely a mommy's girl right now.  I am trying to enjoy this time with her as a baby it goes by VERY FAST! 

Who needs a dog...

Where is our Elf Today!

Alyse was found this morning by Gracelyn.  She managed to hide in the glass Christmas Tree candy dish that has not had the chance to be filled this year.  She makes a great fit!  No letter left today.  She must have partied late with all of her Elf friends.  Oh Where, Oh Where will she be tomorrow!  The girls had a great day.  I hope Santa will be proud!

Elf Location for Sunday!

We found our elf Alyse Santa Elf in our kitchen today making treats for her elf friends.  She hopes "mom" is not mad that she is using her new mixer.  Alyse sent a little letter encouraging the girls to have a better day.  Since yesterday some naughty behavior was going on! We will have to see where she ends up tomorrow!

Chinese Homework for 11/30/12

This weeks Chinese homework. Gracelyn says it is saying something about, "little hands"!

Bath Time Fun

Avalena thinks she is so cool that she can play in the tub!  She LOVES being on her belly.  Hates getting washed laying on her back! 

Our Elf made it back!

The first day after starting our new tradition.  Our elf Alyse came back to watch and report our behaviors over the Christmas holidays.  Today she was found in our Christmas decorations.. our lighted mailbox!  Unfortunately she did see some bad behavior this morning.  I hope Santa is not mad when she reports who has been good and who has been bad.  Can you guess who did some naughty behavior this morning?  The guilty will remain nameless :)

Safe in Daddy's Arm!

Daddy resting... Still trying to recover from this last round of illness!  At least Avalena gets what she likes... to sleep while being held!
