Christmas was really fun this year because Malia is starting to get the Santa thing.
We started out by spreading magic reindeer food around the lawn on christmas eve, she was pretty excited about doing that !

One of Malia's favorite things she got this year was a little girls makeup kit.  It had (gasp) lip gloss in it !
This girl LOVES anything you put on your lips.  I thought it would be fun to try and take a picture of her every time she put that stuff up to her lips, I bet I have a total of 30. I even took some pictures of her putting it on her Dad, Uncle Dan, cousin Danny and her brothers but I wont blackmail embarrass them by posting it.

A Fun Filled Weekend

First we had a snowstorm over the weekend so we just HAD to go out and play.


Then we took some pretty cool pictures of Megan. Head over here to see more.

                                  This girl and the camera have a serious love affair going on.


Then we came into the house to work on a few school projects for Megan.
She had to make a model of a type of rock called coquina and it had to be edible.
So we made it our of a rice crispy treat
with brown colored marshmallow and some sprinkles for effect.

She also had to make a Yule Log.  I had no idea that it was a looooooong process fun way to spend the afternoon, we used a 'classic recipe'.


                                                               And  guess who helped?

Sissy got braces

Today Megan got braces.  She was pretty excited about it.
(Please note all these pictures were taken with my iPhone so they are not really good)

Here she is before anything happened.........

I think she is starting to have second thoughts now, Its starting to sink in.................
( They made her wear these glasses)

Almost done now.............................

When they were done putting them on, they let her get up and look in a mirror.  Her first reaction was this.
The expression on her face says it all......

Then she cups her hands around her mouth like she is hiding them from everyone in the office and whispers,
"Oh my god they are so UGLY" !

She is so adorable,  I think she looks cute with braces.

Not much has been happening and I really haven't  had any time to take any new pictures but here are some that were taken when we went over to Leigh's  parents (my oldest son's GF) house for dinner recently.
They have two Labrador dogs and the one LOVES to play.  Malia just loves to play with Porter.
