Merry Christmas!

A few weeks ago, along with a large part of the world, we celebrated Christmas. It was the first magical christmas for Sloan as she woke up aware that Santa came. WE didnt 'need to remind her this year.  She even went to bed without so much as a peep. Santa can't come if i don't go to sleep, so everyone, go to sleep! And she fell asleep immediately!

It was actually really cute, she woke up on Christmas morning singing, "You better watch out, you better not cry, you better not pout i'm telling you why, Santa Clause is coming to town" followed by "You know, Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen, Coment and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen" I then chimed in, Good MOrning Sloan, Merry Christmas. She replied, "Is Santa here?" I asked her to come into our room. She sat on the bed all starry eyed, excited to go downstairs and see if Santa came! Did she make the nice list?
I would say so!

Santa brought sloan a wooden castle and asked me to make some dolls for her castle. I painted the Incredibles, cinderella, Elsa, Anna, Ariel, Snow White, Kristoff, Sven, Olaf, Belle, Charlie Brown and a few others. They were a hit! and Sloan and i are now working on the seven dwarfs!


Sloan got a few puzzles and books, hair bows, an Elsa barbie doll, a Hello Kitty night light, wooden blocks, a baby doll, and a few movies. Probably some other small things that have escaped my mind right now.  Oh, a grover puppet, which was the only thing that she asked Santa for. The rest she said, I just want one surprise, so shhhh.  

She really enjoyed playing with her new castle and blocks and would have been very happy with just that.

Piper got a few baby dolls, an activity table, a few teethers. Sensory balls from her sister. Some books. and a few hair bow bands . Plus any of the miscellaneous things you see lying around.

Both girls got matching sweaters and socks. Sloan got a few tshirts (Snoopy, Elsa, Elsa and Anna, and Olaf)

Christmas night, the entire Sloan family gathered, as usual, and we took this great photo! Rick and i wore the same color by mistake, sloan is with my dad, and Piper is too interested in the babies in front of her. Ah... there's always next year. At least my kid wasn't the one picking her nose front and center, At least not this year. We keep adding babies to the mix. I think this year (2015) we will all take a break from adding any more. At least for this year. 

 Happy new year :) That wasn't too late was it?
