Hard to believe another year has almost gone. Today is my favorite holiday and every year the girls make it just a little more fun. Courtney has started refusing to be in pictures and Kaleigh has her times when she doesn't want to pose for me either but these few will show you some of the highlights of our Christmas season. I don't have our Thanksgiving pictures in this bunch but will get them up too since they include them sitting on Santa's lap and going to see ICE!! as we normally do on Thanksgiving. Me and the girls go dressed up one Saturday and went to see the Rockettes which they loved and last night we went to church put out food for the reindeers put out cookies for Santa and listened to dad reading the night before Christmas. Then I snapped one of them just as they came downstairs this morning looking at all the new goodies that Santa had delivered.

Our northern families left Friday morning so they could break up the long drive home so we had a slow day that started with a little beach time and the girls tormenting Danial and then some time just roaming the island since it rained off and on. I wanted some last few pictures of the girls with the ocean behind them but Courtney refused so I just wanted to share a few of the good ones that I got of Kaleigh. She seems to want to throw the peace sign or strike a pose for almost all of her pictues lately, not sure where that has come from.
On one of our "ladies" walks on the beach we found this nice piece of drift wood and decided that we would try to use it for our photo shoot this year instead of bringing one of the couches down to the beach. I hope someone got some better shots than me. Kaleigh was a posing fool the entire time except for during the group pictures or I just didn't actually catch her smiling. Brent and Danny saved the day for Kaleigh when they rescued the flip flop from the ocean. My favorite picture of all the kids happens to be the one of all of them sitting on the steps of the bakery from the first couple of days. The bakery was wonderful too.
Well we were missing two families this year but we still had a wonderful time catching up and seeing all the kids playing together not to mention meeting the newest addition to our extended family. The girls loved playing on the beach and picking up shells (thanks for the bags Jen). Please enjoy these pictures from our first couple of days.

The girls were so excited during every meal just waiting to get to meet everyone. They would both jump up as soon as they would come to the table and when the dancing would start Kaleigh was there! Courtney did some but Kaleigh was up everytime. Courtney refused to take her picture with Cinderella's evil step mother unil I got in the picture too. In the picture of the girls with Chef Mickey Kaleigh grabbed his nose as soon as he bent down so he grabbed her nose too, thats why you see her laughing so much in that picture. I know the character meals are more expensive and take longer to eat but I would not trade it for anything to see the girls faces when one of their favorites would make their way to our table.
