New Year's Eve

New Year's Eve Celebration

We enjoyed our day at home playing and dancing. Tonight ate delicious pizza at Marinades and headed to the New Year's Eve Celebration at the Children's Museum. We had lots of fun with our friend Flannery. We even got to watch the ball drop.

Happy New Year!

Schavey Xmas 2008

Schavey Xmas 2008
Our Christmas was filled with the excitement of getting ready for Santa's arrival. We made cookies with the kids, but as you can see from the pictures they didn't really turn out. Still not sure what we did wrong. Xmas morning was really fun. Even Bo enjoyed the sounds of all the new toys. Once we opened all gifts and played with everything at least once, we were off to Chicago. Ella kept busy in the car with her new make-up that was fun!
At Grandma's all the kids got together for a photo...the girls played with their make-up and body tatoos from Grandma and the guys had fun playing the Wii.
Happy Holidays
Love, The Schavey's

Wow, now that's a lot of kids...

Sorry Santa, they didn't really turn out :)

Bo was very curious of a new sound on xmas morning...

Ella's Art

Ella's Art
The other morning I walked in Ella's room to find that the night before she was inspired to create art on her wall. My creative genius used her chapstick as adhesive to put flower petals on her wall...and if that weren't beautiful enough she used permanent marker to color around it. Gotta give her props for being creative. She told me she "just wanted to decorate her room". My first reaction was going to be upset but I thought about The Last Lecture and told her she was my creative artist, but next time just ask mommy when you want to decorate your room :)

Joey's Home Alone Performance

Home Alone Performance
A few days ago we watch Home Alone on t.v. and Joey loved it...throughout the movie when Kevin would do something to the bad guys Joey would yell out things like
"Oh, yeah Baby"
"That's gonna hurt"
"Oh yeah, take that"
Joey was very impressed with the character Kevin that he told me he needs a robe just like Kevin's. Then today when we heard "I am wishing for a white Christmas" he got out his comb and started singing. So needless to say we got out the towel, wet his hair and dad and I had Joey do his Home Alone presentation. Enjoy our little actor!

Going to see Santa 2008

Going to see Santa
Yesterday we had a long day...we went to take our annual family photo Then we had lunch, and stood in a long line to see Santa. I really appreciated the little "talk" Santa gave to Ella and Joey.

Mom's Birthday surprise

Sledding with Friends

Alex and Cal came over today and we all decided to go sledding. We had lots of fun. Ella enjoyed herself on the top of the hill and only sledding for her...hopefully we will get her to warm up to adventure :) Joey, Cal and Alex were the best trio on the hill.
