It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas..... the Pearce household. The tree is up, the stockings are hung and MOST of the outside lights are up. This year Dan decided to put a little music and flash to our outside lights. It is totally going to drive the neighbors crazy. Actually there are three families that are doing the lights and sounds this year (in our double culdesac) ~ the other poor neighbors are probably ready to SCREAM! Our house will probably look very dull compared to the others. We only have white lights but they are perfectly straight and measured out - haha. Wanted to post a few pictures of what we have been up to lately.
Emily is amusing her mommy by pretending to get into the Christmas spirit (what is her problem - so what if it was the first part of November).

Anna Kate did enjoy decorating the tree (well, for all of about 10 mins).....she picked out her favorite ornament (every single one she picked out was her favorite)

And here I am trying to make my own Christmas picture this year.....I didn't make a picture appointment in time and now they have nothing until after the first of the year. Oops...

Hope your season is starting off great ~ Can't wait to get all those Christmas cards with bright and cheery faces!

Merry Christmas,
The DPGang

Gobble Gobble - Eat more Turkeys

Gobble Gobble....Turkey day is almost here! I made these cookies for Anna Kate's classmates this year. They are super cute and not hard to make (or else I wouldn't even attempt). You need ~
J Smiling round cookies (Kroger is the only place I can find them)
Nutter Bars
Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
Candy Corn
Skittles (for eyes)
Starburst jelly beans (for feet)
Vanilla frosting (its the glue of the cookie).
Have fun making them! They are sure to be a hit at any Thanksgiving feast!

Happy Birthday!!!

Today my dear, sweet, only SISTER celebrated her 29th birthday (wink, wink) ~ she looks pretty darn good to be 29 and 3 little ones. Gosh I wish she lived closer to me. I love, love, love talking to her on the phone (every day -- okay Dan, several times a day) and love it when she visits. She always makes me laugh and always has time to listen! She is such a strong person (gets it from our Mother) and always seems to manage to hold her head high when the going gets tough! Happy Birthday, Aunt Cole...We love you and miss you so very much!

They really do love each other!

At times the girls do nothing but fight! Other times they can't seem to get enough of each other....even when they are sleeping.

Curly Headed Princess

"Where do you get that curly hair from?"'s the million dollar question. My hair is wavy but nothing like AK's. D's is thick and straight. Emily's is thick and straight. My mother's brother had curly hair and my mother-in-law's dad did too...was it like AK's....I don't think so. I think it was God's way of covering up her scar from her surgery....

Em wants curly hair and AK wants straight - go figure!

Prayers Needed for Two Mama's and Their Families

Life is just full of uncertainties. Some times you just wonder why things happen but ultimately know that God is in control and there is a reason for everything. As my Mother once told me "God doesn't close one door without opening another one". How true but still NOT always easy!

As you tuck your little ones in to bed tonight, kiss them and hold them tight.....I'm sure these two Mama's would want just one more night to do that & I can bet the Daddy's would want it even more...

Am I really doing this?

Yes, I'm really doing this. After following several blogs for a year or so, I have decided to start one. I will enlighten you about the happenings of two sweet girls, their puppy ~ lucy, their mommy and daddy.
