Christmas Pictures 2010

Trying to get a picture for our Christmas cards
in early December 2010

What Did Santa Bring?

In suspense...

She's turning the switch on...

(yes Rob wired it to be turned on
and off thru a light switch).

A little un-sure...ready to turn the noise off.

Still not too sure of this thing.

Wait for it...

Oh The Excitment

Once we convinced her not to turn off the light
switch- (I think the noise was a bit scary at first),
she saw the blankets begin to fall off
and the bounce house pop up...

Boy was she excited!
In fact she was holding me back!

The smiles and giggles couldn't
have been any bigger!

The Bounce House!

The Bounce House

Jumpin away...

This was a BIG hit! So glad Santa decided
to bring this at the last minute! It will be a
life savor in the winter months
while home with a newborn!

High Chair & Crib for Bitty Baby

As soon as she unwrapped the high chair
she had to immediately start feeding Bitty Baby
with the food that came in her back pack.

And then of course, it was time to for Bitty Baby
to take her nap in her new crib.
Alexa was fascinated with the mobile.

American Girl Doll

Alexa's first American Girl Doll.
The Bitty Baby.

A hug for baby!

Covering up baby so she is not cold and believe
me when I say, she has a little OCD. The
blanket must be absolutely perfect!

Where'd the cookies and milk go?

Christmas morning. Alexa was
floored at "the mess"!

Inspecting Santa's mess!

"Twas the Night Before Christmas"

Rob wanted to start another family tradition
this year. Reading the book, "Twas the Night
Before Christmas" before bed on X-Mas Eve.
He was rather persistent...but Alexa only wanted
to read HER books. This was rather
amusing!! I couldn't stop laughing as Rob
was reading his book aloud and
Alexa reading her book aloud.

Finally, Alexa became interested in Rob's story.

This made daddy very happy!

Cookies for Santa

After feeding the reindeer their reindeer food,
we left cookies and milk for Santa.
But Alexa didn't quite understand
as she insisted on eating the cookies
and drinking her milk.

X-Mas Eve Dress

Off to X-Mas Eve Mass at church.

Then heading to the DelVecchio's
for their party!

Party at the White's

Paul and Patti's annual
Eve Eve X-mas party.

The Messy Part!

Frosting the cookies.

Alexa started out working very neatly,
being super careful!

But then.......

She had a mis-ap with the sprinkles...

And then the mixing of the colors!

Did I mention how sticky
this frosting was???

Making X-mas Cookies

A family tradition that we will be sure
to do each year...making cookies!

The Real B-day

December 17, 2010

Alexa's 2nd Birthday

Although she was a little under the weather,
we celebrated with presents from the family
and of course cake!

Matching Jammies

Of course a party wouldn't be complete without
matching clothes and jammies
to the theme of the party!

Reading with Molly

A day wouldn't be complete
without some stories!

Reminding Molly how old she is!

"I'm two".

Kisses for William

Monkey Cupcake Mess!

Alexa was very neatly eating her cupcake until
Uncle Brian decided to get a little messy!

Fun on the Slide

The slide was a hit with all the kiddos...
young and old!

William seemed to really enjoy the slide!
