Christmas Season is here.....

I can't believe Christmas is almost here. I have a feeling that Gracie is going to be all about this holiday. She has been busy pretending to wrap gifts from Santa. She wraps them up with her favorite holiday paper and sneaks them under the tree. Then she pretends to fall asleep and wake up on Christmas morning and runs to open her gifts. It's pretty cute to watch her imagination go wild. We have been busy baking and decorating cookies for our neighbors this weekend. She loves cooking and loves to decide which neighbor gets which holiday cookie. This drives her mommy and daddy a little crazy! But she has a great time so we just let her do it. Your only 3 once right?

We also took the girls to see Santa at the IBM Christmas affair last week. Needless to say, Madison sat on Santa's lap and Gracie hid behind her daddy the whole time. We decided not to make a big deal about it. I can see how the big guy in the big red suit can be kind of creepy! Maybe next year she will be brave enough. She did write Santa a letter which listed everything she would want for Christmas on it (pretty much everything she saw out of a toy catalog) and told her we would mail it to the North Pole.

Here are a few pics from our Christmas photo shoot and Madison with Santa. Enjoy!

I Love Santa!
Madison is about to be 6 months next week. She has been such a joy to have. She is what we like to call a "chill" baby and is good with anything. Yay! Our favorite time of the day is when we go to get her out of bed in the morning and she has the biggest smile on her face. It's the sweetest thing you have ever seen. She makes us smile everyday!

We have recently been introducing some baby food to her. So far it's been rice cereal, carrots and peas. Peas being her least favorite. Here is a video below that daddy took when he was alone with the girls and he decided to feed her peas for the first time. It's pretty entertaining to watch and listen to. You got to wait for the gagging part, it makes us cry everytime we watch it!
