Santa Claus

11.27.07 Uncategorized

As sad as it makes me that my girls are growing up, it was very exciting that we have turned the corner of crying when we see Santa, this is the first year Gabriella sat on Santa’s lap and wasn’t screaming… and to make it even better, she walked right up to him, sat on his lap and told him she wants a doll house! and i even got one of him with both girls! what a treat. PS i really liked the Santa at Park City mall, and they even let me take more than 1 pic myself…

Christmas Tree Hunting…

On Saturday we went Christmas tree hunting! It was alot of fun, we went with Patti & Butch (my in-laws). I asked Gabriella at the end of the day what the best part was and she said just going with mimi & pap pap… 🙂

Thanksgiving with the Gates

My MIL cooked thanksgiving dinner and we all got together. Gabriella was beside her self. She doesn’t see her one cousin, Brooklynn very much, so she was just SO EXCITED… i think she thought she was the “teacher or mommy” cause she was very bossy. I thought it was pretty funny when she told her one cousin, Maggie not to bang her spoon cause she didn’t want her to scratch her table, she talks just like i do…

Gabby had a school assignment that she had to list what she is thankful for… it was pretty hysterical to hear what came out of her mouth. Here is also a picture of her on “wear your favorite color day at school, of course she is in pink! And one of Alyssa happy as can be 🙂

Today was a big deal day for me… Alyssa finally stopped saying da-da all the time and said mom-ma! OH YEAH!!! i get so excited for these things!

The second we set her in the seat she just bawled… uhhh!
