Twas the day before Christmas Part 2...

Santa was so much fun during his visit to our house. He brought Christopher and Aida their Christmas pajamas all the way from the North Pole. He instructed Aida and Christopher that these were the special PJ's that they needed to wear on Christmas eve. He showed them a special christmas scrap book of the elves, reindeer and Mrs. Clause at the North Pole. And he also brought the special Reindeer food that Aida sprinkled on the lawn that help give the reindeer their magical flying powers.

Here we are looking out the window for Santa's sleigh....and flying Reindeer

This is the north pole scrap book. Aida is trying to help Santa show Christopher...

Thanking Santa for his gifts...

Twas the day before Christmas.....Part 1

Twas the day before Christmas....and SANTA CAME TO OUR HOUSE!!!!!! This honestly was one of the most magical Christmas moments ever :) My daughter is really into Christmas this year and she is so excited about Santa coming. So we were lucky enough to have Santa visit on Christmas eve morning...this was just a wonderful memory for all of us...Christopher was a champ too. Didn't even cry and really was very curious about Santa...we were all shocked and so proud of our little guy. Here are some pictures of our special Christmas Eve.

Aida answering the door...who is it?

She opened the door and yelled "MOMMY IT'S SANTA!!!" Those dimples tell the full story of how overjoyed she was.

Inviting Santa into our house for a visit. This was really just where the fun began.

I will post more pictures in a second post on the Santa visit. There were just too many special moments for just one post...and I we need to make sure we get in bed so Santa can come to our house tonight!!! After the great visit this morning we surely don't want him to even think about skipping us because we aren't sleeping.

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!

My New Camera!!!

This Christmas, Alex and I decided to get the Canon Rebel as our new camera and I love it! I am sooo hoping that I can learn how to use it and that I can really pick up my photo taking. It has been so hard to get motivated to take pictures this past year because my old camera was a real drag. We'll see how much more the blogging pics up. In the meantime here are some pics that Alex and I shot while we are learning to use the camera. The pictures are so crisp and the shutter speed is really fast...I am so hoping I get some super cute ones this year with Christmas.

Here are the munchkins just being playmates at the house...

Happy Picture Taking!
