merry christmas

Hope you enjoyed a very merry Christmas. We had tons of fun! Christmas morning is so special with excited little kids. Bria and Cali LOVED their gifts, their stockings, and all their toys!

Acting out the Nativity story: Mary & Joseph

The shepherds: complete with sheep

Matching jammies for Christmas Eve

Decorating graham cracker houses

David and his brother sporting Cavs T's

Bria and Cali's gift from Santa: a dollhouse

On Christmas Eve I took Bria with me to get some hot chocolate at 7-11. Between her own cup of chocolatey mini marshmallows and the excitement of the day, she says to me, "Mom, I'm such a lucky girl today!" Yes, you are, Bria.

jingle bells

On the way home from Bria's preschool Christmas party. Note the altered lyrics and cute Santa socks!

fast asleep

I thought Bria could push through her nap today. Just after a bath--and not yet clothed because she insists on picking out her clothes and dressing herself--I found her under a blanket on the living room floor. She's still naked and wet but fast asleep. Should I wake her?

emily the plumber

Our sink was majorly clogged for several days. To avoid the $200 plumber fee, we rented a sewer machine and Emily unclogged it! David made me take a picture ... and he says that I get all the "Man" credit.
