We decided to celebrate Christmas a day early this year. We started our festivities last night by reading the Christmas story and driving around looking at Christmas lights while eating pizza. There were some amazing lights to see here in Manhattan. Then of course Santa came last night. The kids have had a blast celebrating today and playing with their new toys.
Happy Birthday to our sweet baby boy! We can't believe he is already two. He told me that he wanted cake ("Iant Cake").... so we made a cake. He scarfed down his dinner and ate a good sized piece. We love you Brett.....
Santa's helper (aka Cole) has been hard and work in the basement. My parents brought me my old dollhouse and I was going to fix it up a bit and give it to Allison for Christmas. Then Cole got a hold of the dollhouse. We've had extreme home makeover dollhouse edition. I wish we had the before pictures, but they were lost when my computer died. Just try to picture a well loved and well used 23 year old house with flowered wall paper and upholstery carpet. Here is the inside of the house.... compliments of Cole the interior designer. More pictures to come soon..... He ripped out all the old wall paper and carpet and added "tile" in the bathroom, wood floor in the kitchen and carpet for the bedroom and living room. I did contribute by painting the interior walls:) We are so excited to give it to her.
Allison has been asking about her birthday party for MONTHS now. We were going to have it on the 19th of December, found out "Ruthie" and "Mr. Thomas" couldn't come then. Allison was VERY set on them being there so we changed the date at the last minute to Sunday December 4th. We had a GREAT time, as you can tell from the pictures! Thanks to EVERYONE who made Allison and Brett's birthday party extra special!
