A quick visit to see Santa

We had dinner tonight with Uncle Kenny since he wasn't here for Thanksgiving. Afterwards he wanted to take Allison and I to see Santa. Daddy was at practice so he didn't get to join us. Monday night was a great night to go to the mall as there was hardly anyone there. No one was in line to see Santa so we had the little village in the middle of the mall all to ourselves. Allison and I threw our wishes in the mailbox and felt snow fall on us. We checked the naughty or nice machine and it read that I was very nice. Then it was time to see Santa. I had no problem talking to him or standing close to him, but I didn't want to sit on his lap. Mommy tried and Santa tried, but it didn't work. Maybe next time.

Pushing the button to see if I've been naughty or nice

"I want a train this big"

Allison yelled, "Hi Santa!"

Mommy tried to sneak a photo with Uncle Kenny and Allison, but I just didn't feel like it.

My new train!

I love trains just like my Nina Nina Dia. Daddy and I have wanted a train for under our tree and Mommy bought us one yesterday. Daddy and I put it up today and I haven't stopped playing with it. I even laid down with my baby doll to show her the train and explain how it works. I am really liking this holiday season and can't wait to show everyone my train.

Look at my train go around the tree!

Mommy loves this photo of me, my baby, and my new train

'Tis the season for............................

BASKETBALL!!!!!! Daddy's team played in a Thanksgiving tournament to kickoff their season. His team played 5 games in 6 days! We went to all of them to cheer Daddy and his team on. We ended the tournament 4-1. Our only loss was to Salpointe, Mommy's alma mater. Every time there was a time out and there was music playing, I would start dancing for the crowd. My favorite move was to turn my back to the crowd and shake my booty:). I also enjoyed getting to eat snacks such as licotish(licorice) and popcorn. I love cheering on Daddy's team and am so proud of how they have kicked off the season. Stay tuned to see how Daddy's team does this year. Enjoy the photos below from the 5 games this week!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Turkey Day! We started our day by watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade! I loved the BIG balloons in the parade. All day I kept telling Mommy and Daddy that I was going to eat all of the turkey and all of the potatoes! Poppy does the cooking today and it is the BEST! I took a nice long nap today so that I would be ready for dinner! We had dinner at Nana and Poppy's house! After dinner Allison and I played while the football game was on. Nana and Mommy checked out the Black Friday ads and created a game plan. I loved eating my own piece of pumpkin pie tonight! I tasted the other pies with my finger too:). I am so thankful for all that I am blessed with and most of all thankful to get to spend today with my FAMILY! Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday like us! Enjoy the photos!

Walking up to Nana and Poppy's house with Dolly of course!

Cheer practice before the game

Before Mommy and I left for Daddy's game tonight I decided to practice my cheerleading. Mommy loved every minute and couldn't stop snapping photos and videoing me. Daddy's team is playing in a tournament at Salpointe where Mommy went to high school. Mommy watches me cheer on the same court she used to cheer on many years ago! Mommy loves her little cheerleader! Tonight Daddy's Panthers play Mommy's Lancers. Mommy is cheering for Daddy's Panthers all the way! Enjoy my cheer poses below and the video clip!

Enjoy this video clip of me cheering for the Daddy's Panthers!

Highly recommended toy!

I am one lucky girl with too many toys to choose from! There is one toy though that I would recommend all kids my age have and that is a Magna Doodle! I love to draw and this toy lets me do that without ever making a mess. Allison loves this toy too. There are a couple of versions of this toy. I have the one with shape magnets which Mommy claims has helped me learn my shapes very quickly. Thanks to Aunt Christina for buying me this toy! There isn't a day that goes by where Allison and I don't play with it! We highly recommend it!

This fun toy has taught Allison and I a lot about sharing

"Can you see me?"

I can touch my fingers with the pen and never get hurt or make a mess

This photo has nothing to do with the toy, but was too cute not to post! Allison hopes to get her very own Magna Doodle under the tree this year!
