Christmas Day!

What a wonderful day! It was so much fun to watch the girls and their reactions this year! Buzz Lightyear was the big surprise for Julian and she was SO excited!!! Ava really enjoyed all the wrapping and bows! Rob surprised me with a new iMac...unfortunately I don't have a photo of it, but it is working great :) We are so thankful for everything the Lord has blessed us with!

All ready for Santa...

Boy, did he leave a mess at our house :)

Buzz Lightyear and Woody Pez dispensers...

Daddy get him out!!!

Ava spots her new bouncy zebra...

...this is great!

Christmas Eve...

When the girls were all dressed up for Christmas Eve Mass, I snapped a couple of photos in front of the tree! They didn't fully cooperate but I was able to get a couple of cute candid shots :) Needless to say, they were ready for Santa to visit!

Shoveling is fun???

Rob convinced Julian that shoveling the driveway would be fun - of course she was up to it! Daddy can make anything fun :)

After all that hard work she took a few rides on the sled...now this is fun!

Keystone Mini-Vacation...

We spent December 19 - 22 in Keystone, Colorado. Rob and I had a GREAT time skiing and the girls loved the outdoor festivities!

In front of the Buffalo Lodge

The view from our condo...

The chocolate village was AMAZING!

Sending her letter to Santa - hope it makes it in time!

Ice Sled - yes, it was COLD!

Cupcakes galore...

We recently celebrated Ava's 1st Birthday - can you believe it? I made cupcakes for her to enjoy and she did a pretty good job of devouring it! This child does LOVE to eat!

This past weekend we traveled to Atlanta for our friend Hunter's wedding. We had a great time catching up with all of our dear friends - I only wish we all lived closer so we could do it more often!
