Christmas Part 2

We had a fabulous Christmas this year... it's so fun to see Christmas through a child's eyes. EmJ really enjoyed it and understood a lot of it, so that was just tons of fun!
Happy EmJ Christmas morning :o)

EmJ got a big girl bed!!! And clearly, she loves it!

EmJ with her Backyardigans on her new bed. My mom made the blanket for the bed because EmJ really wanted a Backyardigans bed... so fun!

Opening a present... she loved this part!

EmJ opened all her presents on her big girl bed (which was obviously set up in the living room when she came down Christmas morning). Here she is playing with her new stuff... she didn't want to get off her bed! :o)

"Check out my awesome new big girl bed in my room!"

So pretty in her Christmas dress and fabulous red shoes! :o)
Christmas Eve we got to hang out at my sister's with my parents and grandparents and eat delicious Italian food (our tradition). After opening stuff Christmas morning we went to brunch at my parent's house... super fun! Then, Jeff's mom and step-dad got to come over and hang out for the afternoon and have dinner with us. It was tons of fun for all! Hope you and your loved ones had a great Christmas this year... and remembered why we celebrate Christmas in the first place... in EmJ's words, "It's baby Jesus' birthday!!!"

Christmas Part 1

Here are some pictures of our Christmas with Ireland and Chloe...The girls anxiously awaiting time to OPEN!
Chloe was so excited about her Ariel doll that she couldn't even look at the camera - so cute!

Ireland with her Doctor Kit... this was the hit of the night for sure!

EmJ checking out Kimmi's heartbeat and her tongue :o)
Jeff even had to check his own heartbeat... haha!
EmJ the next morning playing with her new playdough and toys - she loves them!

Piano Man!

We had a very fun Thanksgiving this year! We got to go to my sister's house and hang out with family and eat lots of yummy food... what's not to like?! :o)
I wasn't good about taking pictures at all (sorry!) but I did get this video...
We were playing American Idol Karaoke and EmJ (well, Daddy) thought she needed to sing "Piano Man" - yes, she knows that song... it's on a cd in our room and she loves to listen to it and "Dance, Dance, Dance" by Steve Miller Band. :o) She didn't really hold the microphone up to her mouth, but if you listen, you can hear her singing...
