Dancing with Jake

These two are hilarious!


We had a fun Tuesday!  We had lots of visits from friends and we even got to have the babies here.  We had an early visit from Violet's best friend Jake, an afternoon visit from Theresa, Michael dropped in for a minute to hold a baby, and Jamie got to see everyone when she came to pick up her girls.  It was a fun and busy day!

The big kids going night night

Bouncy bouncy in the bed

Margaret enjoyed a change of scenery
Nora is working on smiling!

Theresa caught me taking pictures of Nora girl

Theresa came just in time to help me feed the girls - here she is with a very sleepy Margaret

A quiet few minutes in the morning

She took this picture of herself!

Merry Christmas!

Good morning!  We all dozed until 7:45 and it was fantastic :-)

We hope that all of our readers had a very Merry Christmas!  We had a great day and are so thankful for all of the gifts we received.   Of course we are the most thankful for baby Jesus!
Ready to give out the gifts

Making her little Santa guy dance!

Silly girls! 

Opening her first present.  She is the neatest present opener!  She puts all of the paper in a nice stack and then puts it in the trash.  It was concerning to her to have trash laying around the floor.  This girl spends a lot of time with her neat-freak mama!

A choo-choo!! 
 We spent most of the morning at home and then we headed to see Nate's family for another celebration.  It was great to see Grandma, Papa, Aunt Laura, Uncle Sean, and baby Ashley.  Pictures from the morning should be coming soon :-)    We opened lots of great presents and headed home to let Violet take a nap.  Mommy took a nap, too! 

 We finally got a new camera!  Yay!  Thank you Grandma and Papa! 
The first picture...
Aren't we sweet? 

Violet woke up after a 3.5 hour nap! and wanted to play with her new fridge phonics.  On the loudest setting, of course. 

Only a few moments of sadness on Christmas

Grandma and Papa got her this awesome yellow bus and she loves it! 

Can you see a little face in there?

More choo-choo time

Another special Christmas dress for a super cute girl!
I just can't decide which of these two I like the most.  She's so darn cute!

Christmas party at the Magic House

Making pizza for daddy

Working at the pizza shop cash register

I love this picture of my precious family! I cherish these two faces.

We even had time to stop at the hospital and meet a friend's new baby.  Just kidding!  We're at the Magic House nursery giving babies babas and changing their diapers.   Since Violet has experience taking care of twins she handled these babies withe ease.  She gave the baby a baba, wrapped it up, and put it to bed!
