She was not shy, at all!
After the girls' first picture with Santa, Madeline informed me that she didn't get to tell him what she wanted. So she went back up to Santa to make sure he knew. Here she is telling him her list.

The first half was HSM and the second half was HSM 2.
They loved it. In fact, Madeline got up Friday morning saying she wanted to go see it again. Maybe next year...

Apparently, he arrived when I went to pick up Madeline from school. After a couple of minutes of looking, Madeline found him. The girls named him Jingles. Jingles has special Christmas magic. You cannot touch him or he'll lose his magic. He watches you and flies back to the North Pole each night while you're sleeping to report to Santa. Each morning, he is perched in a new spot to watch and observe naughty and nice behavior.

Here's a picture of Madeline doing her homework last night. For now, she is excited about homework.
Last night's assignment: practice writing Gg five times. I think she's doing great!

Here are the girls three years ago dressed up as Barney and Baby Bop for Halloween. I took advantage of having them complement each other for a couple of years, before they took more interest in what they wanted to dress up as. This year, we have about as opposite as you can get...... a cheerleader and a pirate.

The Kindergarten classes went on a field trip yesterday to Dean's Farm Market in Wilson. It was the perfect day for a field trip. Madeline really liked riding the school bus to Wilson. She picked out a pumpkin, visited the petting zoo, had a picnic lunch and played with all of her friends. She's already wanting to carve her pumpkin. With all the warm weather, we're going to do that just before Halloween.

Madeline scooped up these mums that were broken off of the plant. You can't tell from this picture, but she now has a loose tooth. That's been a BIG deal this week.
Lydia showing off her hot pink boots. She loves these so much and even wore them to dance lessons that day. She did eventually change into her dance shoes.
David and me at Hawksbill Mountain. The hike up there was strenuous, but definitely worth it! I did upload some pics on flickr of our anniversary trip to Asheville.

On Saturday, we took a short hike down to this waterfall....Elk River Falls!
On Sunday, we visited Grandfather Mountain. The girls did great there, especially after being lectured about the importance of holding hands to avoid a trip to the hospital.
The highlight of the weekend was on Saturday when we surprised the girls and took them to Autumn at Oz. Of course, they dressed up and got all involved. We met lots of characters (all of them were great and very interactive). We got to go inside Auntie Em and Uncle Henry's farmhouse, experience the tornado and stroll down the yellow brick road.
It was a fun and memorable weekend. To see more pictures from our trip, click here.
