Holiday Season Pics

We went to Hollywood Studios one weekend to see the Osborne Family Light Spectacular. Gabriella just loved it. She especially loved when it "snowed" and kept catching it on her tongue(I'm guessing it wasn't so tasty since I think it's soap). I also told her this would be the warmest snow she'd ever feel.

Helping make cookies.

We took Gabriella to see the Nutcracker ballet(it was an abbreviated version for the little ones) and just loved it. She especially loved getting all dressed up "like a princess" as she says. It makes this mommy happy that she still loves to get all dressed up and girly.

She saw her friend Peyton before the show.

Last week was the Christmas show at Miss G's school. I didn't really get any good pics since you couldn't use a flash. So, I got a couple after the show (yep, same dress. What can I say, it is so cute on her! And would you believe under $5 on clearance last year?!).

This past Sunday afternoon we went to a Christmas party at our Guatetot friends, Hannah & Haley's house. Gabriella had a fun time playing and doing crafts. I tried so hard to get a decent picture of all three of them, but it proved impossible(I know how parents of more than one child feel trying to get Christmas card photos!). And yes, leave it to Gabriella to find the tiara to wear around all evening.

Yesterday, Gabriella and I had a movie date to see The Princess and the Frog. We had a fun time watching and munching on popcorn.

I'm sure I won't be updating again before Christmas, so I hope everyone has a wonderful, blessed Christmas.

Visit with Santa

I took Gabriella to see Santa earlier this week. She was quite excited to go visit the big man in red!

She sat on his lap for quite a while and had quite the conversation with Santa. When she was done, Santa said she kept saying something about "no nannies in the house this morning". He wondered just what that was all about. I had to laugh!! We had run of bananas(otherwise known as "nannies") and she apparently thought that was newsworthy and proceeded to tattle on mommy to Santa. I guess she'd be happy if her stocking was filled with bananas, huh?! Do you think Santa will still think I've been nice and bring me presents?

And for fun, a little trip down memory lane.
