I do have one funny thing to share. The other night Gracie and I were hanging out on my bed watching TV. Somehow through conversation (remember with a 3 year old) I called her my Little Sweetheart. Gracie hates anything with the word little in it. So, she proceeds to tell me that she is not a little sweethear but that I am. So I play the game and say, "Yes you are." Well little Grace took more offense to this than I thought and hauled off and clocked me on the arm (something we are "working" on these days). So I go into MOMMY mode and give her a real stern explanation that she is not to hit me or anyone. THEN, my sweet Gracie looks at me and shrugs her shoulders as if she is 12 years old instead of 3 and says, "Mom, I'm not perfect!" I guess she told me.

We were the last parade entry before the BIG guy came rolling in on a huge Firetruck! The girls loved it but the siren was a little loud. It was actually a rather cold night too despite our tropical December we have had this year. We are riding a cute Train that Alex's dad made out of an old Mail Jeep and flatbed trailers. It really is quite a nice parade ride especially with all the cute train occupants.

Well, Ok it's been a few days or so since my last blog. I've kinda been out of the Christmas spirit and Blogging mood lately. To recap the last few weeks, I wrecked my van, my dad had a wreck the same day, Alex got a speeding ticket, we had some minor repairs done to the rental van and I had to drive a 1996 Explorer that requires some TLC to get it going. Everyone involved in the wrecks were ok and that is most important but it can put a damper on Glad Tiding and Cheer. I would like to send out a Great Big Thanks to Vince and Cil Trapeano for letting us borrow the Explorer!!
These pictures are just some random ones that I thought were pretty cute. Mags is dressed up like the Queen she thinks she is. Gracie Goose is ready for the cold weather we've been waiting for. And CP is dressed as the aspiring Ballerina she wants to be. Well, she really just likes to get dressed up.
I hope everyone is having a much better and safer Holiday Season than we are. It's getting better though. I'm ready for presents and eggnog and candy canes so I guess my Spirits are getting better!!
I'll try to post some pics of the Gardendale Christmas parade we were in last week soon too!!
God Bless and MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

This was our silly face picture. Nice tonsils Clara Paige.
And I think Gracie just might have seen Santa flying over in this one. Either that or she's catching flies! What a bunch of cuties. I love 'em to death no matter how hard they are to photograph together. Maybe next year I'll just do single shots and collage them together or something.
Love to all and Happy Holidays!!
