Merry Christmas! (The Week)

Merry Christmas All!  Anyone who knows us, knows that the Christmas celebration starts early in the month of December.  This year the girls were finished with school by mid-December so it gave us lots of time to do holiday activities.

I tried to load a few pics from each activity to a slideshow, so you'll have to be patient as it makes it way thru!   To view, click on the box and it will go to a playback mode.

She's 18 months old--can you believe it?

I don't think I've slept in 18 months but it's been so worth it!  My sweet girl is such a treat!  Each day this cute, funny, smart little personality emerges a little more. 

Yesterday she said, "love you" in response to my saying, "I love you."  How stinkin' cute is that?  Her vocabulary continues to grow by leaps and bounds.  She recently added bobbli (for broccoli), Santa, hohoho, look (when we are driving around looking at xmas lights), and pretty (which most often sounds like betty).  She also doesn't fail to alert the nearest grown-up when there has been an injustice done to her--such as K snatching toys :-)  I see some possible WWF takedowns between the two of them in the future.

She has her 18 month check-up in a couple of weeks and so I'll update her height and weight then but she is still comfortably wearing 12-18 month clothing.  Most of the 18th month clothing fits in length but is still too big in her waist.

Her hair has gotten long enough to make two ponytails, as demonstrated by her big sis in the pic below though they do need a bit of "grooming" to alleviate the "horn appearance" :-)

It's in the mail....

The lists for Santa are in the mail.  I'd like to think that means that there won't be any additions to the lists, but really, who I am I fooling?????

Sesame Place--and we have pics!

So I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this picture solution works for a while!  My very smart friend who lives in beautiful Puerto Rico emailed me as soon as she saw my last blog post regarding no more pics and sent a solution-THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

To be honest, I was ready to throw in the towel and start paying for space.  I've had this blog up and going since before we went to the RMI for Kailee's adoption and it has become a way for me to ease my "scrapbooking guilt"-LOL!  I couldn't bear the thought of starting over again  on some other platform.

Anyway, enjoy the pics from Sesame Place.  If you are ever in Langhorne, PA, it's a great place to take the kids.  We're already looking forward to going back in June.

Love this pic!  I like the way that G has her hand over Baby M's little head, cradling her protectively as only a big sis can do.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.....

We took the girls to Sesame Place for "A Very Furry Christmas".  It wasn't something that we had actually planned to do but the Imagination Movers were there that weekend and K is absolutely crazy over them right now (and it didn't hurt that the concert tickets were only $10).

I had some really cute pics to load but just got the dreaded "you've used all your free space and now need to purchase additional space" note.  Several of my blogger friends have received this message and I actually wondered why I hadn't gotten it, since I've been posting to this blog since 2009.  HHHHMMMMMM--what to do, what to do? I'll have to do a little research on this so stay posted!
