Live from NY, it's Christmas!

T'was the night before Christmas . And all through the house not a creature was stirring not even a mouse! (Except the person who swore it would be a simple Christmas and ended up staying up till 2 am to wrap the blasted presents!)

The Stockings were hung by the chimney with care (okay, we have no chimney so they hang on the stair!)

When what to my wondering eyes should appear? A child whose crying "I want sleep here!" (in mommy's bed - where she proceeds to toss and turn for the remainder of the night ensuring that not all or any had a good night)

Hey.. who ate the cookies, drank the milk and munched on the carrots??? I wonder????

Thank You - Aunt Col & Cousin T! Just what I need - little plastic things... YAY!

Ballet anyone? Yes, EFP is doing ballet to the music from Leo's Baton!! Thank you Cousin TR!!!!

One real tree: $50.00
New lights: $25.00
Hours spent shoppng: 40
Presents: $500.00
Hearing: "Oh Mommy!! This is just what I wanted!" PRICELESS!!!

Even the Kitties are having fun!!! Thanks Sissy!!


Here are some bonus pictures - some days are too perfect to last. One day in October we had the best time. EFP got to ride her first (real live) pony and she was so happy. She also got to play in a ball pit all alone and first - which frankly, is the only way I could stand to have her play in what I consider a kid-sized petri dish of putrescence. Anyway - I managed to capture some really great shots of my darling girl! We are otherwise spending a quiet holiday. Much of the family is down with some nasty virus - so we are keeping to the house. EFP has been sick and so we are not having the house of company we had planned and it looks like Christmas dinner will be en familigia..... I am making lasagna! I will post some cute holiday pixs on Christmas.. but for now isn't she cute!?
