Christmas with the Petersen's!

We had a wonderful Christmas. It was rushed and at times a bit hectic. With both of us working, we were wrapping until 2 am on Christmas Eve, but hey, we were together and watching The Christmas Story on a loop, so it was all good. Here are some Hi-lights!

The Ballet at School

So today was Hailey's Winter Show. Her class sang some songs and the girls were all in a ballet. It was pretty darn cute. These pictures are all from my blackberry, so they aren't great. I didn't bring the nice camera of course because I was too busy taking video for Shon because he was at work! She did wonderful and looked adorable, of course!

The Christmas Tree is up . . .

So I always tell people that I long for the day when our kids are old enough to leave home alone and babysit one another. McKenzie asks to stay home alone all the time while I pick Hailey up from school and promises not to get scared. I obviously won't let her, but it's a nice thought. Well we are no where close to being able to leave them home alone yet, but last night, I was a bit spoiled and had a glimpse into the future of what it will be like to have some older children! Shon and I set up our very fake Christmas tree, and then just got out two boxes of ornaments. The girls did it all!! They opened every ornament box alone and put them on the tree alone! WE literally sat on the couch and watched. It was glorious. WE only had to add some to the top for the last 15 min. or so! Hailey was great at spreading the decor around, McKenzie needed some direction. She would put about 3 ornaments on one branch if I let her. It was wonderful, all the beauty, none of the work! Here are some pics:
