What we've been up to

We went to the Dentist.
We made a gingerbread house at school.
Which we are very proud of by the way.

We got our hair trimmed.

We went on the hunt for the big man in the red suite.   Malia was very excited to find him because she wanted to let him know that she wanted a (ballbie)  Barbie.  I mean this is all she talked about, telling Santa that she wanted a barbie.  When she actually saw him I bet you could hear the squeals across the mall.
But as we got closer and closer the excitement turned to terror.  Hahaha, this is as close as we could get.
Almost in tears as dad tries to talk her into it.
 So we are right this minuet writing a letter to Santa to let him know about the barbie.

Chistmas cookie time again

Malia is the official cookie decorator.  Its a job she loves.

The concentration it takes to do this is amazing, and not everyone can do it.
She decorated cookies for a good 2 hours or more.

Buzz Words

I'm ashamed to admit that Malia is sensitive to what my husband and I refer to as  "buzz words",  I know  I know its a horrendous condition to have, but alas my baby has it.

It started about 4 months after we brought her home.  Gary would tell her to take it eeeeeeeeasy and Malia would stop doing whatever she was doing and bust out laughing.  No matter what, she thought that word was the funniest thing in the world.  So every once in awhile one of us would bust out with eeeeeeeasy and she would lose it.  Its the weirdest phenomenon to experience, really.

Fast forward to about a week ago,  Malia is watching the new Dora Christmas movie and on it someone mentions Santa's "Naughty List".  This has Malia rolling on the floor.  So she is walking around the house just randomly saying "naughty list" and laughing so hard that her legs give out and she sinks to the floor.  So Wednesday night she for some reason got up in the middle of the night.  Gary took her back to her bed and she started to cry.  Gary said she was really crying and upset so he just blurted out "naughty list" and she went from crying big crocodile tears to laughing, instantly.
I just don't get it, but apparently buzz words can come in very handy.  :)
