Christmas pictures...finally!


We had so much fun over the holiday break, a little sad it's over...but it'll be nice to get the house back in order (I'm sure you all are feelin' it too)!  So here are some things we did.

Boo :-) We hung out with this Dude...



We licked icing off of Oreos after the Bubbas Christmas play...



...we made Lego creations for Santa...



...we made presents & Cookies for Santa on Christmas Eve too.  Oh & see those paper cups on the left...those are "shoes" for the reindeer carrots!  Yeah, I don't get it either, but DQ reads A LOT and comes up with all these ideas, such a creative little girl :-)



...we had the traditional Fondu & dessert Fondu for Christmas Eve dinner, YUM...if you haven't had fondu, you just gotta do it ;-)  So much fun, the girls always love when we have family Fondu night followed by some games...



...Santa visited and gifted the girls with an ipod Shuffle, Nintendo DS & a Playskool Busy Ball Popper that entertains the older ones more than baby Punky, hehe.  We also got them Personal Trainer Cooking for the DS which is the coolest thing ever (shhh, don't tell them I'm using it to learn to cook...er' better, hehe).


...I told ya she loves to read...and that's only a few of them!  She has every Disney Fairy series,Junie B. JonesCaptain Underpants & Magic Treehouse book available (even the research guides)...they are great!  Now she's lovin' The Nancy Drew Girl Detective series, The Boxcar Children & The American Girl series...and that's just to name a few, that girls got SOOO MANY books...




...yeah, we all want one of those ;-)



...we tried lots of new foods (& loved them)...in our new bib from HeathersCustomSewing...



...we showed off our new bracelets from ButterflyGem (her creations are just sooo adorable)...



Then, for Christmas...my F-I-L got the ladies of the fam tickets to see The Music of Andrew Lloyed Webber, presented by Jeffrey Finn Productions at The Kennedy Center in D.C.  It was very exciting and quite an experience...love that "Phantom of the Opera!"  Thanks Opa :-)

This was right before we got busted for taking pictures in the theatre...oops...



...and this was right before we got busted for standing on the wall during intermission...oops...

...boy they were strick, hehe.  I figured we'd get arrested before it was all said and done but we made it, whew ;-)  Funny story though...on our way to the Eisenhower Theater an employee stepped in front of us and said, "Legally Blond is that way!"  AS IF...like a couple of young chicks can't go to see Andrew Lloyd Weber, hehe.  

...anyway, we had a blast...fun ladies day out!!


And this is us trying to be cool :-)



Ya know...I'm realizing that I didn't take that many pictures (which is highly unlike me).  The Daddio & I have been eye-balling the Nikon D80, so maybe I'm subconsciously on paparazzi strike until we can get it, hehe.  Does anyone have any recommendations for camera's?

Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and is having a great New Year so far!!

I've added a few things for Valentine's day to MY SHOP too so check it out if you get a chance!  I'll be updated it frequently.  I've made some bookmarks too...woo hoo!
