A Very Merry Christmas!

I haven't been able to post in a while, so this is going to a LONG post of our Christmas season! :) We had a wonderful Christmas with family and friends! I hope you all had a blessed Holiday Season as well! I will add Christmas Day pics on the next go round!

Our Visit with Santa!

We ventured to see St. Nick on a weekday night thinking it would, "Save us time!" Well I am not really sure if it did, but we had a fun family outing! Needless to say we got in line around 6:45 pm, and we finally got to see Santa at 8:15 pm! Let me add that Marleigh religiously goes to bed at 8:00 pm, so you can catch my drift! Mommy and Daddy took turns "walking" with Marleigh and window shopping. D was VERY well behaved considering the LONG wait! We were very proud of him. Marleigh was fine until Mommy sat her in a strange man's lap. I don't think she even ever looked at him! LOL! She did freeze between melting down, and the photographer actually got a decent shot! Here is some of our shots from our night out!
Marleigh became a BIG fan of Starbucks! Probably not the most suitable drink for a 10 month old! But she LOVED it! :)

Christmas at Nana and Papa's House!

We celebrated Christmas at Tim's parents' house the Saturday before Christmas. Nana made a delicious lunch and the kids loved tearing into presents! We missed celebrating with Uncle Troy this year, but we know he was in heaven celebrating with us. Nana decorated a tree for Troy with some of his GA ornaments and things. Davis loved staring at it and would re-arrange the ornaments when he could get away with it!

It was like herding cat trying to get a picture! This was the best I could do with 4 out of 5 complying! The divanista was way too busy for a picture!

Christmas at Mimi and Pops' House!

We did Christmas at my parents' house on Christmas Eve! Mom cooked a yummy dinner! Ms. Marleigh wasn't feel well at all, but she was a little trooper! We opened gifts first, and Tim put things together and hooked up my Mom's Dance Revolution set and their Wii while my dad went to our church to serve the Lord's Supper with the other deacons. When he got home we had dinner and played. Dad thought we should celebrate Jesus' birthday with Davis, so he got a cake! Davis was able to blow out the candles and we all sang Happy Birthday to Jesus! It was a great night!

We have a New Walker in Our House!

Ms. Marleigh is officially walking! She started walking Sunday night! Oh yes! Right in time for the Christmas tree! This is going to be a FUN Christmas! :) Sorry I don't have any video footage. I have no idea how to operate our video camera, and my digital that takes videos is on the blink! I've told Tim I want a new cheapo digital for Christmas that I can do what I want with! So, now I am telling him that I need it NOW! :) Hopefully I will get it early! I have my eye on one! :) Anyway, we had a fabulous New York trip! The Waldorf Astoria is amazing! I highly recommend it! I was so dog sick, but Tim was a good sport, and we still were able to have a relaxing trip! More to update soon!
