Christmas Parties at Cooper

Every year my sister signs up for all different types of things at the kids' school. Usually we also are in charge of one party for one kid at every holiday. This year it was no different. We did Carter's 5th Grade Christmas Party! It was a great time from serving pancakes, to playing minute to win it and painting pottery. You will also notice that we had to go to all 3 parties throughout the day, notice Caroline was too cool for pictures!

Here are some highlights:

We made pancakes for the entire 5th grade, so we recruited great help. (notice the awesome pancakes)

The hard workers

The real cooks

Our Weekend Away

Since David and I were going to Arkansas for my work Christmas party we decided to make it a long weekend and go to Branson! We had a great time together and it was a much need vacation from his school semester and life in general!

Here are the highlights from our trip to Branson and Arkansas:

Silver Dollar City was decorated so pretty, we had to take pictures.

At the end of our night... a little cold! :)

It was a great night! Stephanie took pictures with all the guests that came. We made sure that she didn't miss anyone. I was helping her with the pictures and after the party the only picture we didn't have was one of us together.... go figure!

Happy Birthday Stephanie!
