christmas morning!!

last night, after carefully placing cookies, and milk (vivian said santa wanted chocolate not vanilla) out for santa....and a quick call to mrs. claus, informing us santa was on his way...it was off to bed.
early this morning vivian awoke and let us know santa had come to visit. we went to get baby bauer who was very excited to see big sister (who wouldn't want to wake up to a face like that?)
and WOW, what a spread santa had left!!!
vivian LOVED her SEVEN new pair of dress up "designer" shoes.
and even helped bauer open his stocking. "see bauer it's a candy cane!"
bauer, as usual, was enamored with his sister...
who quickly showed him how to eat the candy cane...
and cast a magic spell, wearing all her new princess attire...
"piff puff poof" she said. ;)
and of course it wouldn't be christmas without the cheesiest of grins!
but, i am afraid folks, for now at least....that's all she wrote (it's off to play for this crew)!! we hope you have a very, very, merry christmas!!

Definitely one for the numbering system.

1. Mucho points to you for having pics up already!!!!
2. Vivian's femur is roughly the size of a coffee cup?!?!?!? This is one for the 'how big are the Bender kids' file! =)
3. I absolutely LOVE how Bauer is looking at Vivian in the hug photo, like he's saying "Really? Santa will bring WHAT?"
4. How did you teach an infant to WINK???
5. The candy cane photo is so cute - Bauer looks so comfy in Daddy's arm!
6. But the "Woah, look at that!" face in Mommy's lap is adorable too!
7. I hope there's room in that trunk of clothes... Natalie has finally admitted to outgrowing some dress-up items!
8. More points for the most-appropriate ending photo! TOO CUTE!

Thanks for sharing these. I feel like they were loaded just for me. =) Merry Christmas!

Love, Cathy & co

Set has those jammies in green. That'd be yet another cute picture.
Anyhow, isn't it neat knowing Christmas still isn't over even though it's the 28th? Still the postponed Day-side to go! Yay! I like dragging it out.
