First Haircuts & a Look at our Christmas(es)

It's funny to say that my five year old daughter and 21 month old son got their first hair cuts in the same week! Emma has very long, beautiful hair and we finally went yesterday for her first haircut - just a trim, though to clean up her ends! Aaron has beautiful curls and I've been dodging my husband's insistence for about a year to cut it! I just loved his curls, even though it was wild! But I finally gave in and took him for his first haircut last Thursday.  I didn't cut it extremely short - just gave him a regular little boy's haircut.
They were both so good the whole time, too! I think Aaron might not have been so still had they used clippers on him, though!

I still have lots of pictures from Christmas to go through and upload, but wanted to share this family shot...and a couple others from all our celebrating!
And Aaron checking out his new train set - which he loves! He wasn't quite awake yet!
Emma got a new bike from Santa - the very one she asked for,…

Merry Christmas from The Kubeczka's

Oh Christmas Tree!!

I realized I hadn't shared a picture of our Christmas tree this year after reading Casey's post about taking twinkling pics of her pretty tree. So I decided to capture some pretty twinkling lights to share, too of our tree. Thanks for the quick lesson Casey!

The two Christmas trees Emma and I made out of a magazine and an old book are under our tree this year along with a ceramic train Teta gave us - Aaron loves trains so I constantly have to tell him this one isn't to play with!!

I love all the new colors we have on our tree...the only thing I'm missing is a matching tree topper. I just made a bow with some of the hot pink ribbon this year, but I am on the search for a real tree topper that matches for next year. My gold angel just doesn't match now with the fuchsia, chartreuse, bright blues and hot pinks we have now.

The red initial ornaments we bought for Emma and Aaron don't really go with those colors either, but that's alright - they'll be on our…

The Adventures of Frank Continue

Recently my days are so incredibly full that I have not had a free minute...well, not many anyway. And sadly, my blog has been feeling neglected. Unfortunately, I don't see it letting up any time soon, but I will try my best to keep up the post on Frank's adventures and hopefully share a little of our Christmas with you in the future. I'm sure you all understand b/c you're probably all in the same situation! I am so far behind on reading everyone's blogs, too that I know I am missing out on so much.

So, here are Frank's latest escapades in our home. He's been leaving the girls alone this week, but he has made a couple of messes for me to clean up. He used his artistic license and marked up some pictures of my babies - gave them both Santa hats, put a mustache on Aaron, and a bed nose on Emma! He went horseback riding & hung out with a deer! I guess he thought it was a reindeer, but it was actually a whitetail! He got into the cereal again, but this time…

The Adventures of "Old Blue Eyes"

We have an elf living in our house. His name is Frank! He came to live with us about a week ago & quickly became like part of the family! He also got very comfortable pretty quickly with Barbie & Tink! They went joy riding one night and another night I guess they got hungry b/c they ate up ALL of Emma & Aaron's colorful cereal... He has some some "guy time" with Ken playing cards & eating up all the candy!! I wonder who won!!! Then we decided to send Emma's Christmas list to Santa via Frank...and what do you know, Santa wrote her back. And he asked her to write him again with Aaron's list, too!When Frank came back with that letter he got a little artistic, too! I guess b/c Santa drew pictures on Emma's letter it got Frank inspired! I guess after all his playing around he decided he needed to pay better attention to Emma & Aaron so one night he found a perch way up high to get a good look! Can you spot him in this blurry pic!?!? This morni…

I Cannot Believe My Baby Girl is FIVE!!

Yesterday was my big girl's fifth birthday! It's still doesn't seem real! Today at church she told everyone she saw - "I'm five now, yesterday was my birthday!!" I think she was a little excited! We had a great party for her birthday - technically I guess she had two, though. We started off Saturday morning with the Children's Christmas Party that my company puts on every year. It's always great and the kids get a picture with Santa. Usually it's Emma in tears, but this year it was Aaron...I thought it was still a cute picture! This is just a phone pic of the real picture - I'll have to scan it later.

We were at the Children's part from about 10:00 that morning till noon - then we had to get Emma's Cupcake Cake and run a couple errands before heading off to her party. We were missing about 5 kiddos for various reasons, but still had a fun party crowd! This was the first year we didn't have her party at home and I have to say it wa…
