Christmas! The kids had so much fun. Even though they both didn't feel the greatest! They both ended up with the flu and fevers that day! Alyssa and Dominic got a Wii for Christmas. They have had so much fun with it. Christmas is a lot of work. It is so worth it to see these guys all excited for Santa and to watch them pick out the perfect gifts for there friends and family. They love hearing all the stories about Jesus and his birth and learning the gift of giving. Christmas is one of our favorite times of year! I hope everyone has a great Christmas!

She was so excited!

Helps to concentrate with your tongue!

Dominic and his favorite dino! He loves those things!

He was so tired....

My Tree

I'm so excited. Last year I was so sick of my purple tree that after Christmas my Mom took me to get all new ornaments and decorations. So today I put up my tree! It's cute. It needs a little more red I think but it's a start!

Oh My Edward!!!

This weekend was Twilight Weekend. I know i'm obsessed! It was SO great! Isn't Edward amazing? Oh and Bella? Oh and the Cullens? Oh and JACOB!! I loved the movie! My only wish is that it was longer! I can't wait for New Moon. It's my favorite of the series. Can you imagine the Volturi on the big screen!?

Valerie and I went to a TwilightMOM's Party. We met up with Kristen and had a blast! Those girls put so much work into that party. It was so fun to see everyone again.

Halloween this year was fun. Alyssa was a pirate and Dominic was batman. He was going to be captian hook but after we borrowed a neighbors batman costume he wouldnt' take it off. So we had to go buy him one! Our HOA decided to pass out a paper to put on your door if you were home or not. It was brilliant. No second guessing.... go to the door with the pumpkin on it get your candy and leave. We were done in 30 minutes. Thanks for making Halloween easy for us this year guys!
