Instead of using our Advent Calendars to count down to Christmas Abby has used hers to count down to Iowa. She was so excited that today we were going to leave but sadly a storm has kept us home until tomorrow.
This will be our last post until we get home Thursday or Friday.
So I hope you have Merry Christmas!

This has to be my and the girls favorite tradition. Every night we open a Christmas book and read it counting down to Christmas. This year has been especially fun since they are really getting familiar with the books and they are both reading along.

So we went to Hobby Lobby to get ornaments and Tabitha picked out her own ornament, a Tiara. Fitting since she is our little princess! She put it right on the tree but goes to it often to try on and then puts it right back!

At Brownies the girls had their investiture ceremony. Each girl said this poem:
"Twist me and turn me and show me an elf, I looked in the mirror and saw myself"
Each girl is now an official Brownie.
They even got their own Brownie pin to wear on their sash.

December 13th 10 years ago Vinod and I got married in Noble, Oklahoma. Today we live in Edmond, Oklahoma and are just as happy as the first day we celebrated the rest of our lives together.
Normally I wouldn't post this kind of stuff here but I have out of town friends that want to see my gift. Isn't it beautiful!

I have never been to a Christmas Tree Farm and it was quite a treat for me to be able to go on a tour of one with Tabitha and members of my MOMS Club. We started our tour with a look at pine cones, tree rings and a story. Tabitha liked the pine cone (lunch?) but would not sit with her friends for the story. She instead wanted to walk around and look at all the interesting stuff they had.
Next we got to go outside for a tour of the farm. So many trees. They had 5 pastures of trees and several different kinds. The owners of the farm had their house nestled right in the middle of all the trees on a hill. We walked out quite a ways and the farmer told us all about the trees and many interesting facts which I didn't quite get to listen to because Tabitha wanted to walk.
After the tour it was time to go inside and get warm with hot chocolate and cookies. Tabitha loved this part. The chocolate was just the right temperature for the little ones and Tabitha had 2 cups! But no cookies !?!
I want to go again next year with the girls!

Our famed actress Maddy was a star in her play Oklahoma. She did such a great job with her lines. The whole class did a good job. Maddy was Polly, one of Laurie's friends. She got to say 2 lines and be a bridesmaid at the end of the play. The girls in her class also sang and dance to one song.
Tabitha just loved seeing her sister up there preforming. As soon as she spoke Tabitha looked up and said Maee.

Tabitha really likes playdough. She gets it out in the morning and wants to play with it so badly. I really thought she was too young to play with it but she proved me wrong. She played with it for almost an hour. She loved to squish it in her fingers and she loved to break it up into small pieces and put it in the container and then dump it back out and start all over again.

The MOMS Club is collecting items for a needy family. We are keeping all the items here. Tabitha found the wrapping paper and carried it all around. When it was time to go to bed she kept saying mine mine mine and it was the paper that she wanted. I figured she would just throw it out of her bed but instead she fell asleep right next to it. She continued to carry it around for a few more days.

So it has been a whole month since I have updated the blog. Let me fill you in with all the fun things we did in November.
November 1st-Tabitha just loved the Halloween candy. She found this sucker somewhere in the house and eventually ate the whole thing. She was quite proud of herself and threw quite the tantrum when I wouldn't let her have anything else!
November 2nd-My MOMS Club group gave my good friend Jonnelle a going away party. She was the president this year and is moving to Minnesota. I am now going to be the president again!
November 9th-Our favorite little friend Reagan had her 3rd birthday party at a fun gymnastics place. Everyone had such a great time. Happy Birthday Reagan!
November 10th-A little girl in Abby's class had a pool party and they had so much fun. Look at these cupcakes. Taylor's family all made them. They are so cute!
We all just love our visits from grandpa and grandma. We had a nice visit, a great dinner out at a bbq place and then they got to stay over to sleep. Sadly they were gone before we got up in the morning.
November 13th-The girls had an open house in their dance class. Maddy is doing her barre exercises and Abby is practicing her X jumps in Jazz class
November 16th-So tell me do you think I have the next big singing group?
November 23rd-Well I can check off Shopping on Black Friday off my everything I have wanted to do list. I arrived at Kohl's at 3:45 am, then hit Wal-mart at 5:00 am, than Target at 6:00 am to do some shopping with my friend Jonnelle. I was home by 7:30 am just in time for the girls to start waking up. Will I be doing this again? Maybe if Jonnelle moves back to OK.
November 25th-We got all of the Christmas stuff out of the attic and we are now in full Christmas mode. The girls sure do love to get everything ready. Maddy and Abby pretty much decorated the tree all by themselves.
November 29th-Downtown Edmond had a Christmas tree lighting and the university had a holiday celebration. The kids craft was fun, but Abby loved the game room with the parachute the best. She also loved getting her face painted by the clown.
November 30th-A trip to Krispy Kreme Donuts with my MOMS Club group. We got to go on a tour, eat a hot donut and, make our own sprinkled donut. Tabitha really enjoyed the tasting portion of our tour. YUM! Me too!
So there, the very busy and so much fun lives of the Joshi girls.
