December was fun and crazy and flew by! Here’s some things we were up to!
We celebrated our 10th annual Mommy and Me cookie exchange party!
We went to see A Christmas Carol at a local college!
I got to help out in Grace’s classroom and they had a very special visitor!
We got some amazing snow and even a snow day from school!
We made a gingerbread masterpiece!
Our Sacred Heart School Christmas concert was beautiful! The living nativity and special visit from Santa is always my favorite part!

Basketball season is in full swing! Seamus is playing and Grace is cheering!

Ok…so I am way behind on posting! Life has been busy, so I’ll do my best to catch up!
Our Thanksgiving this year was a bit different than usual!
I had committed to running the Turkey Trot 10K this year, instead of the usual 5K, so that was a bit nerve-wracking for me! But the race went great and I finished in a decent time for my first 10K!
The kids typically run the kids’ one-mile race, but just as we were ready to head out the door, Seamus got sick! Luckily it was a fluke thing and he wasn’t truly ill, but Devon stayed home with them and unfortunately they missed the race this year. We’ll try again next year!
We had a lovely Thanksgiving dinner, but this year we ate early and quickly, since we needed to be in the car by 3pm to drive to Philadelphia. My mom and I were headed to the Mid-Atlantic Oireachtas, an Irish dance competition that Grace was participating in!
She had a ton of fun dancing and hanging with her friends. It was a crazy weekend!
I was so proud of her for all her hard work and beautiful dancing!
We also had a fun visit in Philly with Jenn and Simon Greene! We walked all over the city in the cold and had a blast!
So it was not our typical relaxed Thanksgiving weekend, filled with food, Black Friday shopping, Christmas decorating and more food. But we had a great time! I am so thankful for all the wonderful blessings in my life!

I was so excited when the kids decided to coordinate Halloween costumes again this year! They all decided they wanted to be characters from their most recent favorite movie, The Lego Movie!
With “Lego hands!”
My sassy Wyldstyle!
And the cutest Bad Cop I’ve ever seen!
Happy Halloween from Emmet, Wyldstyle and Bad Cop!

Wow, this school year is already flying by! Can’t believe it’s the end of September and the kids are already in the thick of another fantastic year.
Here’s Grace on her first day of third grade!
Seamus on his first day of fourth grade!
Typically they wear their full uniform on the first day of school, but it was very warm this year so they were allowed to wear their summer uniform right away.
Liam started his second year of Pre-K!
Our tradition for the first day of Pre-K is a special donut for breakfast. Can’t believe my baby will be off to kindergarten next year and the Pre-K donuts will be all done!
Hope everyone is having a great school year!
