It twas the day after Christmas...

...and all over the floor
the toys were everywhere,
But it was not a bore.
We had no where to go,
because of the snow
and stayed in all day
to play, play, play! 

We only stopped for lunch,
but quickly there was not a peep.
For little Lia fell fast asleep!
She's not faking..she feel asleep with a little smile :)

 Happy New Year !!!

Believe in the Sprit of Christmas:

"When it seems that we have lost our way
We find ourselves again on Christmas day

Believe in what your heart is saying
Hear the melody that's playing
There's no time to waste
There's so much to celebrate
Believe in what you feel inside
And give your dreams the wings to fly
You have everything you need
If you just believe"
Just believe

Merry Christmas to all .....
                                     AND to all a good night !!!

Merry Christmas ..... Charlie Brown

This is the 1st time Lia has watched Charlie Brown! She has hidden from this show in the past (for some reason) but this year she climbed on up in Jim's lap and grabbed her blanket and settled in.
She is not used to commercials so every 15 min or so she would say:
"more Charlie Brown"
We think she kinda liked it. I know Daddy did, he got about 30min of snuggle time.
That's like a whole day in toddler time!!!

Mommy thought it was super cute too!!

Lights, camera , SANTA!!

We had a fun few days, enjoying the festivities that lead up to Christmas.
We went to the Zoo to see the lights!
And went to have breakfast with Santa!
We took along our camera, here is some of what we captured. 
First stop the zoo with Grandma to see the lights:

Next stop breakfast with Santa and Oma and Opa, Kiki, Ryan Emily Cati and Lexi!

Here comes the star of the day!
The BIG MAN himself.
And who doesn't love Santa? 

Even the big kids love him! SEE?

Can you guess what all of this excitement meant for our little one???
If you guessed a sugar/Santa high -you would have been wrong.
 Lia was so tired she took a 2 HR nap.
