Merry Merry Christmas!

Cinderella and the price dancing

This year we had John's mom "grandma Cindy" at our house for Christmas. Alice knew Santa was coming which made it so much fun. She is still kind of scared of him though, so she wanted to make sure he wasn't staying. She also loved the story she calls Mary and the donkey and has asked John to tell her for a bed time story. We had a great Christmas and having Cindy here with us made our holiday!

O Christmas tree

Alice loved running around the lot trying to find our tree.

This year we found the prettiest tree. I love the holidays with all the yummy smells and warm feelings. This truly is my favorite time of year. Happy holidays!!

The little turkey

Today has just been one of those days. It has been pretty nice outside lately so I let Alice play in the back yard. Well without me knowing she brought in a bucket full of mud and pine cones. Then she decided to try and wash it down the sink and flush it down the toilet. Long story short I had mud, pine cones and water ALL over my bathroom. As I was cleaning that huge mess up ( thank heavens it was in the bathroom ) Alice went into the kitchen and dumped the salt All over the floor. Fun right? It doesn't end there. About an hour later I sat down to feed Ella. When I was finished I headed up stairs to find Alice with a tube of toothpaste squeezed out all over my carpet. That is not fun to clean up. To end the day she sat on the couch and colored on her BRAND NEW pajamas with a pen! Can I just say I am SO happy the little turkey is asleep!!

My baby girls

I was holding Ella on my lap this morning and wishing I could freeze time for just a moment. I just love how little she looks curled up on my lap. Before she was born I would hold Alice and think she was still my baby girl and now she's all grown up. It just happens so fast. I love my girls!
