Holiday Celebrations

Coming in after a cold New Year's Day, Daddy wanted me to snap a picture of the rosy cheeks that both Charlotte and he had. Can you see the resemblance?

Although all of Charlotte's gifts were awesome (a snowsuit outfit from Nonna and Nonno, a baby doll from Aunt Debbie and fam, a fruitcake, bicycle onesie and funny soothers from Aunt El, Oncle J Dog and radiant Eabha, and ballet shoes from Cousin Anthony, Aunt Ash and Uncle Ro), the one that she has really taken to has been her Jolly Jumper. She now screams for this item and gets super excited once in it. If encouraged she will jump higher than I thought a baby could. Grandma and Grandpa Grier have created a monster!!!

Eabha is so creative and worked diligently on decorating the family Gingerbread village that Grandpa constructed - a yearly tradition. She decided after seeing how the red sugar crystals became pink when spread on my iced roof that she would put all into the icing container. The result: A pink roof! Love it!!!!
Eabha holding Charlotte's hand. She is such a sweet girl and was excited that Charlotte had held her hand. I was excited as well.Santa thought that Charlotte, after completing Charlotte's Web with her father recently, that she needed something else to read. So she got J.K. Rowling's "The Tales of Beedle the Bard". We can't wait to read it.

Everyone needs a sock monkey! A sock monkey jack-in-the-box is even better.

Santa didn't forget Alley. He brought the frisbee that Charlotte had requested. What we found funny is that Alley didn't open the gift until Charlotte had awoken to open hers, eventhough it had been sitting under the tree.
This note is pretty self explanatory. Sorry for eating the cookies Santa Claus.
