Today was Drew's Christmas party at preschool. I must say this party was much more relaxed than the Halloween party. I think I learned the hard way that it is MUCH easier for me to get a babysitter for Bennett than to try and take him. So, Bennett stayed with Nana this time and Drew and I went to the party. We had fun! We had a "breakfast with santa" meal, sat on santa's lap, played pin the nose on rudolph and gave Mrs. Joyce her gift. Here are some pics of the party.

"What do you want for Christmas Finley?"
Drew just sat and smiled at santa... she wouldn't tell him a thing!
Look what santa gave me!
Pretty sure Drew didn't close her eyes...
We walked over to Mrs. Susan's room to see Evie
Mrs. Joyce opening her presents, with a little help :)
Wednesday night Drew had her little music program at church and it was the most adorable thing I've ever seen! They sang the sweetest songs, the motions were precious and their little voices just melted my heart. I wasn't sure how she would do up on stage, but she did so good! I was one proud mommy! I was definitely in full nerd mom mode.... you know, waving like a lunatic, thumbs up, the whole bit... you get the picture. I didn't care one bit because when Drew's eyes met mine her face lit up and I'm pretty sure mine did the same! My pictures didn't turn out all that great because I wasn't nearly as close as I would have liked, but I still got a few good ones.:)
I was so excited and proud of how well Drew's preschool pictures turned out that I had to share. We had to preorder the package and of course I got the biggest package... so either I was going to have alot of bad pictures and a funny memory OR lots of really great pictures to share with everyone!! I will definitely be sharing these! I am so proud of her :)
Thanksgiving was good this year! Lots to be thankful for... Here are just a few random pics from our thankful day! One thing I am NOT thankful for is the stomach bug!!! Which has put the hurt on each on of us here at the Hudspeth household....horrible! On the other hand I am soooo thankful it is gone.
Bennett eats with his shirt off...like a real man :) Look at that face?!
Apparently Bennett spent most of Thanksgiving with no clothes on... oh well
This picture will make Evie so happy :) Look at that pocahontas hair! If anyone ever loved their long hair, it's Evie Kate!
...Let down your hair! Drew's Nana bought her this hilarious Rapunzel braid. Drew thinks it is wonderful! She has worn it everyday since she got it and slept with it in her bed. These pictures are from breakfast on Tuesday before preshcool when she had asked me if she could "eat breakfast in her wig" ha! She has also let me know that she will be wearing it when we go to see the movie Tangled. I'm sure we will get some looks :)
Thursday Drew had her Halloween parade at preschool and her party after. The parade was through downtown Benton. We went to different businesses, paraded through and they passed out candy to all the kids. It was quite a sight with nearly 50 3year olds and all their entourage making our way across streets and through buildings. We were glad to be back at the preschool by the end, it took us nearly an hour! Drew was in a funky mood that morning and didn't like me taking her picture. Despite that, all the girls looked really cute!
Drew's class picture... As I said she was in a "mood" and I couldn't get her to get in the group picture... grrrr-"pick your battles"

Momma with one earring... Thank you Bennett
Not the greatest picture, but I'll take what I can get and this is what I got
Later that evening we had our Sunday school party. I dressed Bennett up for this one. He cracks me up in his costume. I call him the blind pumpkin because his little hat ends up completely covering his eyes and yet it doesn't slow him down at all.
My little Pumpkin Patch... see the patches on his legs and sleeves :)
Michael is the cowardly lion to go with Evie's Dorothy costume... this is the best shot I got of him. He and Bennett have the same problem with their hats :)
Brandan and I are proud parents of Miss Drew Elizabeth and a sweet baby boy, Bennett Lee. Brandan works at Everett in management and I stay at home with Drew and Bennett. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I also enjoy spending time at the gym, I think it helps to keep me sane! Being a mom is a wonderful thing and has changed my life all for the better!
