Its Christmas! Merry Christmas Everyone ! What a fun day! We opened presents from Santa and then all my cousins and aunts and uncles came over for dinner! I played with Sydney and all the kids played with their Wii game. My aunts played cards and my uncles played pool. We had lots of fun but I was tired by the end of the day! I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas!!
Its Christmas Eve! One more night until baby Jesue is born! Mommy went to visit Baby Stephen and Grandma and Grandpa Burke & I went over Aunt Kelly''s to play with the kids for awhile. Then we went over Grandma''s house and I wore my new dress and stockings!! I got lots of presents from Grandma, Grandpa, Great Grandma and Aunt Linda! Like a movie projector, a toss across, a tunnel, dolls and a dora outfit! After dinner we went to mass with Aunt Bridget and I kept singing and walking back to Aunt Bridget''s row.
Finally (it was a long day!) we left cookies and milk for Santa and carrots for the reindeer! I hope I''ve been a good girl!!
Tonight we had a party with Pap Pap, Grammy, Aunt Amanda, Aunt Ashley, Jason & Charlie! They brought all kinds of big boxes for me! I got a princess car, a teddy bear nursery, a work desk, a grille like daddy''s, a medicine kit, books and a purse ! Wow, so many presents, I''m one lucky girl !!
Guess what? Daddy came home from work and there was a big pool table in the basement! Mommy said Santa dropped it off early for him! I got to spend the night at Pap Pap & Grammy''s and played with Aunt Amanda and Aunt Ashley! We went to Damons for lunch and I ate lots of pickles!
What a busy week! I wasn''t feeling good Monday so daddy stayed home with me Tuesday. Mommy''s friends came over for a girls night dinner and Colin and Corinne came too so we played downstairs! Wednesday Santa Claus came again!! He was really loud saying "Ho Ho Ho" and he brought me a veggie tales tape and a book!
Today I got my haircut again and we''re making Christmas cookies! And its snowing! Yay!
What a weekend! First we watched all kinds of shows on the drive to and from Michigan. We visited my Great Aunt Mary and Uncle Tom once we got there and then went to mommy''s cousins in Ann Arbor for dinner. We got home really late and I got to sleep with Sydney!
Saturday we went to the mall and then over to Aunt Mary''s again for a BIG party! Santa came but he was scary so I cried and cried. But he did give me a play pony so that was nice. The other Caileigh was there too and she sure is tall! We had fun playing with our toys together. I''m glad to be back home!
We''re off to Michigan! Daddy, mommy, all my aunts (except Bridget) and cousins (except big Joe & Meghan) are headed to visit mommy''s cousins and aunts/uncles! Once we get there we are going swimming at the pool!
I didn''t feel so good last night so mommy stayed home with me. I took a long nap and woke up singing my ABCs! You know I can sing the whole song? It snowed all day long so after my nap we went outside while mommy shoveled snow, I made a snow angel. I also ate some snow and it tasted good! Mommy said it tastes like chocolate but daddy says it just tastes like water.
It sure is fun to get ready for Christmas! I''m learning a lot of new songs like "jingle bells", "frosty" and "let it snow". But my favorite song to sing is "Hark the Herald Angels Sing, Glory ("lorrie") to the Newborn King! That''s what the angel on the top of my manger says. And I like "Hosanna", like we sing at church. Mommy sings it first b/c daddy says he doesn''t have a good singing voice, then me, except I say "Psanna, Highest"!
Today was daddy and Caileigh''s day! We went to see "Go Diego Go" downtown and I got to meet Diego after the show! And I got a neat flashlight that lights up and spins around! I had so much fun with daddy!
This morning we went to Lake Forest to cut down our Christmas tree. We walked and walked and walked (ok I was carried) until we found the perfect tree. Then daddy muscles cut it down! The best part was the pretzels and hot dog at the tree farm. I like our tree !
