Lexie Rae, the happiest little girl we know, has turned 6!
A little boy that goes to Lexie's school told me that he thinks she is the most popular girl there and I have to agree with him. She says hello to everyone and even children and teachers that I don't personally know come over to say hello to her. She is our innocent angel that captivates people with her happy and loving demeanor. She loves going to school and really loves when they have field trips because she gets to ride the bus. That's her most favorite part about school. Pool used to be her favorite word to repeat throughout the day, but bus has since taken it's place. She loves her friends and siblings so sweetly, and we are still at the stage where I have to pull her off of people due to prolonged hugs. She is such a big helper at home too. Besides loving on Eli whenever she can, she's my laundry room companion and bus girl. If there's a dish left on the table, she doesn't waste any time putting it in the sink. She has made significant strides in potty training and takes such pride in the fact that she is acting like a big girl. Plus the sweets really hit it home that she is doing a fantastic job hitting that goal. Her sleeping at night has improved some what. Not nearly as much as I would've hoped, but I know its more because she will not give up her love of napping during the day. Another daytime activity that she still loves it outdoor playtime. She could play outside all day long and be perfectly content.
For her sixth birthday, we decided to take the celebration to the Georgia Aquarium. I'm so glad that we did because it was great for her. It wasn't too busy and the dim lights kept her attention which is perfect for a sensory kid like herself. Lexie and her siblings loved watching the sea animals swim and playing in the kid area on the top floor. We were able to meet up with friends, so it surely was a fun celebration. After playing all day, we had cake and presents at home.

Seeing how our Elf was busy moving every night and the fact that we were busy doing our advent calendar every day, I barely had time or even the mind to remember to take pictures.
So what you see on this post is pretty much what I captured.
I have a feeling 2016 will be my year...or at least I hope. ;)
Making a craft at a Christmas Party
Experiencing a real nativity scene.
Making a snow globe
Making a snowy landscape seeing how an outside snow man wasn't going to happen here in AL.
Ready for the Christmas Parade
Leaving a treat for the mailman.
We invited our good friends, Jeremiah and Annalise, over for some holiday fun. The kids watched movies and had sleepover. In the morning we had a Rudolf breakfast and made sugar cookies, which we later delivered to our local firehouse.
