a slosh of pictures from the last several weeks up until saturday..... mostly self explanatory. the best was that we were surprised to have santa come visit on christmas eve. claire wasn't a huge fan, and was only near enough to get some candy from him, but when he was leaving (her favorite part) she waved and said "bye christmas man!" she has been singing, talking, and dancing to herself, talking about "chwiss-miss" non-stop. she definitely has her grandpa wrapped around little finger. she goes around on her toy phone talking to him all. the. time. bubba continues to be a dream..... except for the teeth. one has majorly popped, and has at least two more trying to make an appearance.
christmas has been perfect! being all together, talking to my bro in BRASIL, games, wii games, sitting around the fire, shopping, eating and more eating, cirque dreams holidaze, and the list goes on. mostly just being together has been amazing. love my family! we still have a few more fun things coming.... i'll grab some more pictures and throw them up later.
