Enjoying her new dollhouse...
The big gift this year, a new kitten from Daddy!
She has yet to be named and amazingly isn't dead yet. Alexis has carried her around by her neck and hind quarters. She has already used up 6 of her 9 lives. Maybe we should call her Lucky.
Hannah in the action...
Opening their stockings...
Alexis loved the apple, orange, and pear that was in her stocking. Go figure!
We had a very Merry Christmas and a great day celebrating our Savior's birth. We baked a cake and sang Happy Birthday to Jesus. Alexis was so excited that the day included birthday cake, her most favorite treat right now.

Fits their personalities to a "T". Alexis is scared of everything and Hannah really doesn't care...about anything.
Just for laughs, here is last years photo...

We have been talking to Alexis about seeing Mickey Mouse for weeks. We finally got there to meet him and she was terrified. She clung to me and refused to look at him. She was more receptive to Minnie Mouse but it took some coaxing to get her to hug her and she refused to turn around so I could take a picture. However, she was not scared of any of the rides. She even rode the Pirates of the Caribbean without a problem. She had a great time with her friend Cole and the adults even got to enjoy a nice beverage during nap time. All in all, we had a successful trip to the Magical World of Disney.

Now for the most obnoxious outfit of the year...
Here is Alexis in the same outfit in what seems like so many moons ago...
They both had to wear it...at least once.

This is a crazy life, but I am loving every second.

During this so-called photo-op, Alexis displayed some of her affection toward her sister.
She then displayed the true relationship between siblings.
Gotta love 'em.

I hope I am not jinxing myself, but I am going to venture out and say that Alexis has not had one potty accident in 4 days. I am so proud of her! She has done great and has even graduated to using the big potty, all on her own accord. Last night was the first night without a nighttime diaper and she did great! Tomorrow is the true test. We are traveling to visit Grammy and Papa and here is hope that she does well on her first major outing in panties! I am so not in the mood to clean up any more toddler poo.
Hannah is still getting over the cold that just keeps hanging on. Poor girl is pretty good during the day but at night she gets a pretty bad case of the sniffles. She is powering through it though with just mild crankies along the way. She is learning to sit and will probably crawl soon after. Today I was practicing with her and I would hold her tummy off the ground. She was making distinct crawling motions. Just a little bit more upper body strength and she will have it down. Two kids being mobile is quite overwhelming. Pray for us, we will certainly need it.

I love this shot of Alexis that I took tonight. She is so pretty and I think this shot captures her beauty. Scott and I laugh (and cry) when we think of the boys knocking on the door in a few years. Brown eyes and blonde hair...what a combo.
I have been MIA because I have been working so much. I finally decided that there was no way that I could continue working as much as I am, so I am going back to my 6 shifts a month. Ten shifts is insane, or should I say I was going insane working 10 shifts? I feel much better now and I hope that I can continue to provide to my family that little extra that we need.
I can't post without a picture of both my girls. Here is one of Hannah tonight. She is so cute and the most easy-going baby. Oh how I love my girlies...
