You Never Can Tell

these two apart...well I can, of course, but the girls have a hard time telling who is who when I show them a picture of Ava when she was little. They almost always think it's a picture of Gus. Gus at 13 months looks so much like his big sister when she was 16-18 months old... they both have a lot of the same expressions and mannerisms. Have a look see:

Ice Ice Baby

The girls wait patiently for their surprise Christmas date with mom and dad.

Photo op in front of venue, girls still not sure what we are doing.
Ava spots the ice and guesses correctly...

Disney on Ice!

This is how they sat most of the show:

In awe

and filled with wonderment.

                                                                   A priceless evening!

Santa Claus Is Coming To Town

Waiting in line to see Santa.

Gus takes a good long hard look at this Santa fellow.
He's not too sure...
Santa reading Ava's Christmas wish.
Picture perfect

We've been seeing this Santa since Ava was a baby and he is absolutely wonderful! You have to have an appointment to see him because he is in such high demand and gets booked up before the middle of December. In our family, Santa brings one present for the children and we, parents, supply the rest. So this year, I made sure the girls asked for something they really, really, wanted and to dream big... this is what they decided on:

What you don't see is me in the background shrugging my shoulders and mouthing "I have no idea why they want this?".  Funny little girls!

C'mon 'N Ride It (The Train)

I interrupt this blog to bring you a very important Public Service Announcement:

Do not ride THAT train.

In fact, if you see said train...drop your stuff, abandon your cart, grab your children and get the heck out of Dodge.

This train derails often!

Your achilles will thank you.

The End.

A Day In a Life

Gus fell asleep while grocery shopping. Comfy, huh?

Ruby fell asleep while taking a brief break from playing in the snow in the garage.
Daddy fell asleep while transferring phone numbers from one phone to another.

This happened in a span of 8 hrs.

This happens all.the.time.

Sadly this never happens to me.

These two littles got this narcolepsy like gene from their daddy.

They also got his hair.

Boy, did they get his hair...

Sing A Song

 I don't know what shocked me more at Ava's school winter concert that took place last Thursday; The songs Ava had been singing nonstop the past three weeks had full body motions to accompany the songs that she never once hinted there would be or her  Celine Dion like moves during "Silver Bells".

Unfortunately for you, I was laughing to hard to catch that part of the song on video but trust me it was hysterical.

I did catch some action shots on this one:

Ruby was not impressed...
