Anyhow, since we have the camera back, I can finally update the blog on our Christmas and such. So, here it goes!
Here are just a couple of silly pictures of the girls. I do a calendar
for the grandparents for Christmas every year and I needed a few more pics to fill up December layout, so we had a little impromptu photo session. They were, of course, more than happy to ham it up for me :)
The next pictures are from the girls' birthday. Nate was taking his National Boards, so we had my dad and grandmother come over and spend the day with us. After opening presents and playing for a bit we went down to Lake Alice to feed the turtles (or alligators). It was a nice walk. You would not believe the fun those silly girls had tugging on the trees on the way home. Way too much fun...
When we got back from our walk, the girls played in the pile of leaves that had been steadily accumulating in front of our apartment. They had a blast!
Then, it was time for some yummy ice cream cake. By the way, we learned a valuable lesson with this cake. There is apparantly a knock of brand of Carvel ice cream cakes. It is no where near as good as the real thing...
The next day, I think it was the 22nd or so, we celebrated our Christmas at home before we headed into St. Augustine for 3 weeks. The girls loved the Melissa and Doug ice cream set we gave them.
They also really like the Crayola bath color things they got in their stockings. These are pretty neat, they are just little tablets that change the color of the bath water. I mean, what could possible be better than a pink bubble bath?
Once we headed into St. Augustine, we got to meet our new niece/ cousin, Baby Aubrey Suzanne! She is such a cutie! Sorry for the grainy picture. She was not a fan of the flash...
One night in while we were in St, Augustine, Nate's parents did caroling at their house. Lily passed our in her Mimi's arms...Ava, not so much :)
Here are my little cheese balls at Nana's house for Christmas.
And, here's Grammy's house...
After Christmas, my sweet friend, Toni, let us stay at her house...with her amazing bathtub. I seriously love this tub. So do my girls. Especially when we out in bubbles. Here's a little secret. Bubble + jacuzzi tub = TONS OF BUBBLES! Here are the girls in the bubble pretending they are sharing the tub with some alligators and turtles...
Ah, the next one is a kind of random picture, but I wanted to share the story behind it. Lily saw this hook on our way out of the house and became super concerned about where the other half od the cat was... "But, Momma, how will it get out of the wall?"
Here are couple more silly pics. Lily requested we take pictures in the front yard at Mimi's house. Just for funsies. So, she ended up doing poses and demanding I take her picture...Ava, I have not idea what was up with that face. I am sure she was upset about something, but who know what!
Last, but not east, here they are snuggling up with Baby Aubrey! They are so in love with their baby cousin! Makes me super excited for them to meet our new baby girl!
