Christmas Eve...we went to the Church in the mountains at the Chapel of the Snows...
Winston was one of three doggies we had to entertain Aida all week. Our 4 legged friends were Winston, and two Maltesse puppies named Frankie and Bella (who were lucky they survived a two year old all week.)
Grandpa's favorite cookie is Oreo's and here she is trying her very first Oreo cookie and the cute messy face afterwards. She would say "Owerooroo"
More Oreo pictures hanging out with my dad and having some relaxing time.
Opening her presents with Donna. Santa bought her this great princess outfit from the Plaza Hotel in NY. Aida especially loved the wand.
Getting ready to go on our first horse drawn carriage attempt. This was such a cool thing but the weather was too warm on this day for the horses to cross over the fields and ponds. The next time we tried to go we missed out appiontment by 30 minutes. Better luck next year!
This is at the farm where the horses were. They had a real dairy farm, fresh milk, fresh ice cream and fresh smells! The smell was terrible but Aida was fascinated by what she called the "MOO COWS" Here she is upclose and personal with Bessy. Kuddos to Donna for holding her hand or Aida would have been trying to ride the cow I think :)
More sledding with Daddy in the front yard.
Aida with her snowman that Daddy and Courtney helped her build.
The day the snow really came in. They played out side for a while but were frozen. Here is the outside picture.
And here they are inside right after....defrosting....
Christmas 2009 was a great time. My brother cooked too much yummy food. He is a great cook and everyone eats such yummy things when we are with him. I miss my family so much, that it is hard to leave them. Thank you Dad, Donna, Courtney and Michael for a wonderful Christmas experience for Aida. We love you all so much!
