December (If you thought it was image Heavy before… just wait!)

  • Beaker started Lil Bit’s birthday off BIG!

Lego Advent Calendar from Beaker

  • Annual tradition. I think I started this when she was 2. Her fave breakfast has always been pancakes so i made them in the shape of her age every birthday. The 8 was trick, but I got it done 😉

  • The surprise of the day was taking her to Build a Bear to fix Pinkie Pie who’s threading was coming out. Of course we got Pinkie fixed, but I also let her choose a new Pony.

  • And since we were in the mall anyway, and so was the man in red… well…

  • THEN I called up her godmother who was nearby and met us at Chili’s for dinner. To Lil Bit’s surprise! She was also quite shy when the staff sang her Happy Birthday.

  • Her BIGGEST request this year, at least expense wise, was the American Girl doll of the Year. Of course the doll loved dance just like her and had a similar name… so HOW could I say no? Well… i couldn’t…

  • Even thought she had desert at Chili’s we had to have a cake at home. No sugar high though. She didn’t like the frosting she picked out!!

  • Lil Bit got to see a live performance of The Nutcracker as part of a school field trip. She enjoyed it so much and has constantly asked when she could dance in it as well. (She was not in dance this past year, but this lit a fire under that creative idea)
  • We made our first ever Gingerbread House! All the kits I ever saw had peanut/tree nut contamination, so when I saw one that didn’t I jumped at the chance. She had a blast and I hope to do it again!

  • We attended Member Appreciation Day at Tellus Museum which was a blast as well. They had a photo props (see pic), bags and hats to design, a hot cocoa bar, and a snow tent.

  • We went to the Pettit Creek Christmas Lights. A drive through light show. A bit expensive, but enjoy it for the time i get to spend with Lil Bit. They have hot cocoa and fire pits that you can get marshmallows for. I ate waaaay too many! Other than that she got to ride a pony

My kitchen table…

  • Another tradition of making cookies. Half green, half red. Lil Bit gave Santa a choice. Red or green and egg nog or milk 🙂

  • A good girl this year. Check out the gifts!

  • I treated myself this year to a bracelet from Kohls. Not quite Pandora, but close enough 😉

10384739_10152880663275661_8243877128676583191_n

  • And since I got myself the bracelet, I let Lil Bit pick out a charm for me. I gave her free reign and had no idea what she got me until I opened it Christmas Eve. It was torture, but my girl knows me well.

  • Christmas was amazing and Lil Bit had a blast! She appreciated everything she got and couldn’t wait to play with the new toys or wear her new clothes. Especially when they came with a matching set for Isabelle…

So this Recap has more been a year in review through pictures, but I am glad to have gone through all the posts and photos. Reminds me of all that we did in 2014. So this is me signing off for now!

My Life as a Dancem0m

Stories inspired by life as a mother of 2 (one competitive dancer, one who dances and competes in karate). Also, stepmom to 3 teenage boys. I'm also a dancer, and an Early Childhood Teacher. I've been a two time walker of the Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk for the Cure, two time participant in the Relay for Life, and so far, have jumped into a cold lake once for the Polar Plunge, MN.
