Missouri Christmas

We were lucky to be able to spend last weekend with our families in Missouri celebrating Christmas. It was a fast trip, but so much fun! Daisy really enjoyed presents this year!

Daisy saw this car with Grammy and Grandpa one day at the mall, she just kept saying, WOW, that is so neat. WOW, that is so she has her very own!

This is Daisy's 'CHEESE' smile. It is impossible to get a good picture with her eyes open. Please note the face in all the following shots!

She is getting so big! These pictures of her riding the Tricycle really showed me how big she is!

When we got home there was a package from Auntie with lots of great presents. This one is a dog, "jingle" who speaks while you read the story!!!! It is really neat! Daisy LOVES it!

We had such a great time. Thanks to our families for doing Christmas early. We celebrated Christmas yesterday, (Christmas EVE) as a family. I will post pictures later. We also took some really cute videos! Merry Christmas to everyone!

Thanksgiving and beyond

We were so fortunate to celebrate Thanksgiving with the Bratchers and the Powitzkys. We are so blessed with wonderful friends. (and as an extra bonus Uncle Steven was here to celebrate with us).
Funny Story: While the adults were eating Thanksgiving lunch the girls (Gracie and daisy) were playing. They were being really good and then someone decided to check on them and this is what we found!

They unwrapped all the presents under the tree and they were undressing themselves to put on the new PJ's!!! So sneaky! No wonder they were being so 'good'~!
My mom accidentally started the tradition of buying us PJ's for Christmas and letting us open them every thanksgiving! So I thought I would carry on the tradition and buy matching PJ's for Sara, Gracie and Daisy. Here are the girls after they finally got all dressed! So cute!
Daisy and baby Sara....although they are almost the same size!
Last weekend we took Daisy to see Santa. Here we are waiting in line. Isn't she so cute.
Again, not sure about Santa this year. We did give him a high five and tell him that we wanted 'Barbies' for Christmas, but she would not get any closer than this.....
Another photo of Daisy being silly. She put on 'daddy's shirt' all by herself and was so proud!
I am in the process of getting out Christmas cards......they might be new years cards by the time I get them out! Sorry!!! Hope everyone is doing well!
