This video is of the dress rehearsal for the Holiday Dance Recital. Leah had her own choreography going on! She certainly moves to the beat of her own drum! Watch her tutu. I have come to the realization that she is more of a hip hopper than a ballerina, but she has to be 4 in order to take that class. So now we will continue in ballet until she is old enough. We will let her decide but are pretty sure she will choose hip hop as she loves that music and dance. Tomorrow is the actual show,(after I glue the tutu to the leotard) stay tuned for more cuteness!

Have I mentioned how adorable our Leah is? She is a ham. Today I kept her home and decided to take her to Triangle Park on Miracle Mile to see the Christmas decorations and play in the park. On the way each time Mimi and I looked back at her in her car seat she gave us a look. She was excited and knew we were going somewhere with a park.

"It's the most wonderful time of the year"! My entire life, I have waited for this time of year with excitement and anticipation. It is interesting to see that everyone in our home also feels this way, but for very different reasons. I love the shopping, the cooking and baking, the excitement and joy in my children, the way that everyone you meet is cheerful, friendlier and happier and of course the holiday parties. Mimi also enjoys baking (Clan favorite "Brookies") and shopping but I think her favorite thing is getting to hang out with her cousins. She plans for weeks, prints Christmas Carols and makes everyone go caroling with her (even in the rain!) Ed and Danny mainly enjoy the food! Actually, Ed seemed to enjoy putting up our holiday lights and lawn decorations this year. He did it earlier than ever and in record time and without me even mentioning it!
This year our tree is a bit different. We used a few less ornaments and made sure non-breakable ones were on the bottom.
