Merry Merry Merry Merry Chirstmas....and mini Stancil Update!

Mini Stancil Update:

Sophia turned 5 and is Amazing! She is doing WONDERFUL in Pre-K. She is having a bit of a hard time with transitions due to too much idle time to talk and be bossy... who does that sound like?

Sambo is equally amazing. He is an early walker, a snuggle bug, a cute giggler, and has a bit of a temper (again, who does that sound like?). Sambo is on his way to his first Christmasand his first birthday, December 31st!

Merry Christmas! Love, Nichole

Spider Cupcakes!

I love cooking with Fia! Cupcakes seem to be our specialty. Since, she is a big girl and in Pre-K this year, we were unable to contribute Halloween cupcakes. However, we were able to find a loop hole...this weeks thematic unit at her pre-k is Spiders! So we made Spider Cupcakes! Sophia did most of them! Fun!

Random Thoughts

So...I think that blogging has become that thing that seems like it may just top off the overwhelming factor in my life. Plus, I did not feel like this blog had a purpose...a direction. So, Here's to my random sort of life and random Nichole thoughts!!

Tonight: Sambo got an Alphabet Train! It was $50 at Target and I got it for $25 at consignment! Used a little Fantastic and it is good as new!! Woo Hoo!

Expect more :)

Dear God...

"Thank you for your gift of Baby Jesus. Thank you for loving me so much that you would send your only Son to save me. Please help me to always remember that Christmas is about so much more than wrapping paper and presents. In Jesus name, Amen."

Sophia recited the above blessing/prayer for Christmas Eve dinner and Christmas dinner with our family. We have been practicing all week. She still needed help from Mommy, but I am so proud of my little angel.

Christmas Meltdowns were present, however, I really think that Sophia was able to grasp the "reason for the season."

God Bless and Merry Christmas from our family to yours!

Family traditions

Below are some pictures of Sophia partaking in a beautiful Stancil family tradition of decorating "Nan's" tree, who is David's Mom, her grandmother. The tree looked beautiful as Sophia and my beautiful neices adorned the tree with MANY ornaments that have been collected over the years. It was one of those moments that made your heart warm... just what the holidays are all about. Merry Christmas Everyone!
