Bubbles Academy

The best part of vacation is getting together with my nieces and nephew. We went to Bubbles Academy and had a great time. I regret that Marc and Jimmy stayed home because Jimmy would have loved it but it’s important they got some male bonding. I mostly took pictures of Rosie and Isla because they are so freakin cute.

They look concerned.

I think Rosie is yelling at someone. I hope it’s not Isla.

Janet took Agatha to the bathroom and Isla made the tiniest peep so I grabbed her. I asked Isa to take our picture.

Till 2011!  Happy New Years!

Rosie is 4 months old!

Rosie is a cutie 4 month old. She weighed in at 10 pounds 10 ounces. She is a peanut! She is 23 inches long and cute. A week or two before Christmas she started to roll over regularly and can go both ways. Her favorite pass time is to chew on her tongue. She no longer sleeps through the night but she does give me a 5-6 hour stretch of sleep so no complaints. LOVE HER!

Here are some cutie photos of Rosie Rose!

She is a great little sister. She smiles and laughs when ever Isa or Jimmy stop by for a chat or song.

Christmas!

Christmas morning was fun for Isa. Rosie slept through most of it and Jimmy demanded Signing Time. We eventually gave in because shouldn’t he get the one thing he wants?! He did not care at all about the presents and Isa didn’t mind at all opening all his gifts. Isa’s gift to me were rain boots. I LOVE them. There is a whole video of me opening the gift but I look horrible with my un-brushed hair and oversized pjs and what not so I decided it was better not shown. I was very excited though! Here are a few photos.

After opening Santa’s gifts we ate some yummy chocolate croissants from William Sonoma. Thanks Janet for introducing these to us.

Can I get some milk to go with this yumminess?

Check out Rosie’s blue eyes!

Jimmy’s favorite gift besides being allowed to watch Signing Time was from Isa. The whole week before Christmas she would wrap random things for different people and put it under the tree. For Jimmy, she wrapped up some balls we had and a car. I think he played with the balls more than anything else all morning. The pic below is Isa giving Jimmy his gift.

He did like this stacking toy Marc and I got him!

I didn’t take any more photos but we had a great time together!

Elf on the Shelf.

My mom got us Elf on the Shelf. Our Elf, Dominick, watched the kids and reported back to Santa (his memory must not be the greatest because Santa was very generous this year!). He liked to move around and hide from the kids. Isa enjoyed finding him and then finding some friends to sit with him.

Rosie and Me! No one ever wants to take a picture of me so I had to take one myself!

Presents! Wait, it’s not all about the presents. I have to keep reminding myself of that. Err! Isa opened up nearly all the gifts. Mary got a TABLE RUNNER! Marc will be making pancakes with M&Ms very soon (way better than chocolate chips!) and, Jimmy just wanted to go home and take a nap. He’s like, I don’t care about all this, why is everyone making a mess? Ugh, can I go home?

I thought it would take awhile to get Christmas ready but we were done very early. Now Marc and I are having some champagne and we are about to have a frozen pizza. Yes, we do it right!

I’m so excited for tomorrow morning! Marc’s been playing up Isa’s gift to me. It was all her idea and she charmed the people behind the counter picking out the exact one she thought I needed. So curious. Happy Birthday Jesus! Your birthday is the best.
