Dear Santa!!

It has been requested that I share with you the new pagan tradition in our house hold to pray to Santa! As I have stated, Clara Paige really seems to be grasping this Santa Claus deal this year. So, Oh I guess around the beginning of November the sale papers and commercials really started to roll in with all kinds of cool new toys and gadgets for the girls to want. Every time CP would see a commercial she would tell me she wanted whatever was on it. If it was girly, she wanted it. So I pulled out the good ole' end of year excuse that Christmas was coming so she needed to ask Santa for it. Well, we had also started the very religious tradition of praying as a family every night too. So my smart-as-a-whip little 4 year old figured that if we pray to God for things then why not Santa. One day I saw her bowing her head and whispering to herself about something. I started paying more attention and figured out that she was PRAYING to Santa for almost everything she saw that interested her. She didn't want to miss out on anything!
Here's how the conversations with Santa go, bow your head, put your prayer hands together (you know how) and repeat, "Dear Santa, Please let me have (toy of your choice). Amen" Well we have explained that she doesn't need to actually pray to Santa but she still "asks" him out loud to be sure he hears her.
What a hoot!!!!

It's A Miracle in Brookwood!

I don't have any pictures that I can post to prove it but we witnessed a small miracle last Saturday in Brookwood Mall. My three precious angels who are terrified of anything in a costume decided very hesitantly to take the plunge and try going to see Santa. I do have a picture of it but not sure how to get it on the computer yet. Anyway, Clara Paige even SAT IN HIS LAP!!! Will wonders never cease?? This year the girls really are starting to grasp the concept of Santa and that he brings them the toys on Christmas morning. I think Clara Paige was a little worried that if she didn't tell him what she wanted then he might not know. I had to hold Gracie and Maggie stood on the other side of me but we did it. We got a picture with Santa and no one was crying. Santa even sang "All I want for Christmas is my 2 Front Teeth" to CP. Too Cute!!
Anyway, Santa gave each girl a little candy cane. As we were paying for our pictures my Maggie looks up at us and says in a very disappointed and matter-of-Fact way, "I Thought Him was going to give me some toys!!!"
She thought she had been ripped off by only getting the candy cane. I'm sure she was thinking this Santa business was for the birds! She didn't understand that you have to wait til Christmas day to get the toys. It was hilarious!!

My babies are 3!!!!!

Well these pics are a few weeks old but we had a BLAST at the twins' birthday party! As you can see we even got PawPaw to pull out the Christmas Parade Train. The kids loved it.

Gracie and Maggie loved all of their gifts and thanks to all who took time out of their day to spend time with us celebrating my little angels' party day. They also had some extra special help opening their presents from sister Clara P and cousins Emma and Abby Claire!!

Time for the Cake! It was so colorful and good!! We're still working on the blowing out the candles issue. Had to have some help on that one too!! But hey they are princesses we shouldn't have to do it themselves should they???? Hahaha

Happy Birfday to us!! Gracie is on the left and Mags is on the right!!

Here's the pretty Princess Party table before the kidos got to it! We really do appreciate all the help everyone gave. The kids enjoyed time riding golf carts, jumping in the cinderella castle, riding the train and eating cake!! I just can't believe my Gracie Goose and Maggie Mae are actually 3 years old. Their actual birthday was Saturday (iron bowl day)! We took them to see the movie Enchanted and to my surprise they loved it and made it all the way through.
I posted some different pictures on my Myspace page if you want to check those out too!!
I have several other events to blog about so be on the lookout for those.
Love to all and a BIG WAR EAGLE to my Auburn family and Friends!!!!

Girls, Girls, Girls!

Here's just a cute pic of CP that I wanted to share with you guys!! Isn't she growing up. Pictures of her minus her tooth still to come.

This disaster is compliments of my girls!! I went to pick them up after work last Thursday and this is what I came in to at Mom & Dad's. It's packing peanuts!!! Thousands, no millions of them. But as Nana and Pappy said, "but they had loads of fun!!" I bet mom didn't when she was cleaning them up. I offered to but she insisted that she would clean it for them. What a good Nana we have!!

Lost: CP's first baby tooth!!

Well I don't have any pictures yet but today Clara Paige lost her first baby tooth. Both of her bottom front teeth were loose which seems a little early for me but apparently it was her time. She came running up the stairs today to tell me she lost her tooth. Literally she LOST it in our garage. We still haven't found it but we did leave a note for the Tooth Fairy. Hopefully she'll go for it till we find the real tooth. My baby is a snagletooth now but she is the cutest one I've ever seen!!

We're all moved in and out of batteries!!

Well it's been a long weekend but we are now moved in and trying our best to unpack. There are boxes everywhere but I am just so thankful to be here. Thanks to all our family and friends who helped us in anyway throughout this adventure. We love you all so much. Friday when we were waiting on the big moving truck we were cleaning up at the new house. The girls found a little dead ladybug in one of the windows. I got it out and told the girls that it had died and put it in the garbage bag. Maggie looked in and looked up at me and matter-of-factly said,
"Dat ladybug just runned out of batteries!"
That sums up how we all feel. We are just all runned out of batteries!

Technical Difficulties!!

Ok I'm posting a picture from a few weeks ago because well we just plain forgot the camera last night for Halloween. I'm just not as good as Kim Lawson. Kim is always "have camera will travel." We went to the new house to trick-or-treat so we could get more acquainted with the neighborhood and meet new neighbors. Well we still have lots of painting and work going on there so it was very chaotic. Mom did her best getting the girls to the house with all their costume garb and the candy to hand out. When I got there from work, we realized that we didn't have the face paint and you just can't have 3 little kittens w/out whiskers. Well ok they were a Tiger, a Black Cat and a Leopard. But they are still my little litter of kittens in my opinion. Anyway I had to run back out to the drug store to hunt down some face paint. So in the midst of all that the camera did not make it. However I did get a few pics of the tired and worn out kitties. I'll post those soon.
The girls had a blast and we did too. Clara Paige called all the trick-or-treaters that came to the door our Customers. It was so cute. The doorbell would ring and she would run and announce, "We Have Customers!!!"
Hope everyone else's Halloween was Fun and Safe!!
