i ♥ faces ~ Hillarious Outtakes

This week over at i ♥ faces it is "Hillarious Outtakes" week. When I first heard this weeks topic, I knew just which pictures I wanted to use! It had to be the pictures from when I tried to get the kids pictures for our Christmas cards! I had tried before and it was a disaster. Their clothes didn't fit and I need to put it off. Well, I put it off until the very last possible minute and the weather wasn't great outside and I needed to shoot indoors on a backdrop, which isn't my favorite or older kids. So here are the outtakes. If you want to see the ones that made our card, then go here.

Now, that you have checked out my outtakes, make sure you head over to i ♥ faces by clicking on the above button and see all the others!

Big Snow... That Wasn't

So, this past weekend, we were under a weather alert for BIG snow. It was supposed to be a Nor' Easter with the shoreline getting the brunt of the storm at 2++ ft and we in the hills who usually get more were supposed to get 6-8 in. and we ended up getting a measly 2+ inches. But, no matter how much we got, the kids loved playing in it and it was one of those wonderful fluffy western snows! Now, my parents on the other hand who are on the shoreline they got 24+ inches!

So here is the story of our day in photos.

Jack loved stomping the snow off of his boots!

No fear! Sledding down our steep hill with Daddy on the big kid sled!

Ugh! You mean I have to walk back up that hill!

Allies turn down the big hill! Notice her eyes are closed!

She loves to go down, but only with her eyes closed!

I just love this smile!

Helping Daddy shovel!

Jack the Big Boy!

Jack is such a big boy! This past week we have started switching Jack into a "big boy" bed! I am happy to say that it has gone really well! The first couple of nights we had him sleeping on his crib mattress on the floor next to his crib. It has been going great, so yesterday when I was at Once Upon a Child dropping off toys to resell and found a toddler bed, I bought it for him. So as of last night he is now sleeping in a big boy bed and for now his crib is in pieces in the kitchen, until I can bring it down to Once Upon a Child to resell it.

Allie's Winter School Concet

Allie had her Winter Concert on Thursday and I have to admit, that it was SO cute! She has been talking about this for weeks and practicing all the time. They sang 4 songs and then they had CAKE! Allie was just as excited about the cake as she was the concert itself! I also took video and I will put the video up here as soon as Matt can get it ready for me. I hate to admit it but I don't know how to get the video off of the FLIP without messing it up first.
