Savannah's First Holiday Concert!

On December 11th, Savannah had her first holiday concert! She's in the Toddler B class at the North Post Child Development Center at Ft. Belvoir. Her teachers are Ms. Tammy, Ms. Shante, and Mr. Kelly, and she loves them! We are so glad that she is at this school and we love her teachers too.
Savannah's class sang 3 songs: "Jingle Bells," "We Are The World" and "We Wish You A Merry Christmas." Thank goodness the teachers sang along, because the kids were not quite certain of the lyrics. Savannah did her best and clapped along though:)

After the concert, we had to rush out to meet Reagan's bus, but not before I snapped a couple pictures of this cutie in her Christmas Concert outfit!

Apple Picking 2015

It was the perfect, overcast day for a trip to Stribling Orchard in Markham, VA for some apple picking with family and friends. In typical Goodale-fashion, we set up camp on the top of the hill with a feast complete with a meat and cheese tray made by Mil and Bloody Marys:) We definitely know how to do things right! We were sad that several of the Goodale's couldn't join us, but we added Jessica & her friend, Bill, and Jon and Rachel to complete the occasion. After a fantastic picnic, some blanket tossing, and a million pictures, we packed up the party and headed into the orchard to pick apples. What a great day! 

I don't have a lot of pictures of the girls together because Savannah is MEAN to Reagan so often, but on this wonderful day, they played so well together and had a blast. I couldn't stop capturing the moment.

Thanks to Jessica, we got to update some group photos!

Time for a break:)

Taking off the Training Wheels

I was 5 when I learned to ride a bike without training wheels. The only reason I learned was because Jessica did, and I was super competitive. That being said, I've decided that Reagan should start learning. Oh, and several of her friends can now ride without the aid of additional wheels, so that might have sparked me too. Apparently I'm still competitive:) She's terrified. And not very confident in this aspect of her life. But we got out in the backyard a few times recently and she's doing great! Thought I'd try to capture the moment when Daddy was around to hold the bike for a few runs. 

No hands!!!

Savannah was hard at work mowing while the lesson was taking place;)

More Pictures from NC!

After a quick photo session with Keith, Colleen, Max & Miles, we got ready and headed out for the Hurricanes' Red/White game. Apparently Keith is a pretty good referee, because he was out there with the pros! They had lots of fun stuff set up for the kids outside the arena, so Max, Reagan and Savannah took advantage of the bouncy houses and hair coloring station! And once they all had snacks, we were able to watch the game and get some pictures of Keith in action.
Savannah and Auntie Tiffany! 
Love this picture of Max & Savannah. He is so sweet to her!

We left Tiffany in charge of all the kids!
