best "pic" ever

and so just to make your holiday a little brighter...here is the winner of best "pic" of the year. yesterday the mulhearns came over for a little christmas festivities. we decided we should get a picture of the day cousins....i told su to wait, i needed to wipe bauer's nose....well, i guess vivian thought she could help....and the rest is holiday history!! :) here is hoping your holiday will bring memories that make you giggle! :)

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!!

the day girls night out

everyone knows i am big on tradition...and susan has come up with a great one!! every year for my birthday she treats me to murry's dinner theatre. last night was our night to go...we decided we would rather see love, sex, and the irs, instead of arsenic and old lace which is playing in january (my actual birthday).

i also thought since we are normally in our "mommy attire" that it might be nice to dress up like grown-ups. we had a great time chatting, and the play was goofy, but funny. thanks, su! can't wait to do it again!! :)
