Santa!! (: ..... or should I say Santa ):

Santa was on "break" when we arrived at the shopping center, so we played in the surroundings for a while (:
Lyla insisted on touching each fragile fake animal... climbing over rocks to get there... promising she wouldn't fall in the fountain...
Evie all ready to go!

I know this pic is blurry, but doesn't Evie's face just say it all!?

Lyla telling Santa what she wants for Christmas... she keeps flip flopping between a pink barbie and a new puppy... She's getting the barbie!!!
really pretty scene around Santa
Well our picture didn't transfer to the computer the first time so we told Lyla she was the "winner" and got to cut in line to see Santa again! We had to put Evie's oxygen back on the second time she was still so upset from the first go-round...
Gingerbread house making! Usually when Lyla smiles like this it's because she's being bribed to smile (:
say "bribery!"
"Go Mommy and Lyla!"
Evie cheesing it up for the camera while we're hard at work
Eve is playing "peek-a-boo" in this picture, how funny is that!?
and finished!
Horray! The House is done!!!

when i was uploading pics from my camera it went straight from the picture above to this one (the first saved on my cam). Isn't it amazing how far we have come in the past 15 months!? Praise God!

Love you friends! Sorry it's taking me so long to get back to posting these days... still not feeling great, and John and I have both had the stomach flu... we need to kick this winter sickness! (:


  1. Love Love Love all the pictures! Evie is always so smiley and happy, except when she's being scared of Santa of course. ;) Great gingerbread house, you and Lyla can do ours next year. :)

  2. LOVE Evie's smiles! Tell Miss Lyla she makes an awesome house!

  3. LOVE all the pics! You have two precious girls :)

  4. Those pictures are adorable! I'll bet 10 years from now the girls will get a kick out of the ones with Santa.
    Wishing you a Merry Christmas!


  5. so fun to see BOTH your girls smiling and enjoying life -- great example from mom & dad.
    You are an amazing, fun mom -- keep it up!

  6. the pictures are great but the one of Evie with her arms raised is just about the cutest thing I have ever seen!!
