Dora Dora Dora...

Okay. So I think I have found a way to get Ava Grace to eat (for now anyway!) She has not really been eating well for the last couple of days so I have been trying to think of something different to do to get her to eat. Today I found the CUTEST Dora place setting and flatware!! For those of you that know Ava Grace - you know how much she LOVES Dora. Well... IT WORKED! I gave it to her at about 4:30 and she ran to the kitchen and got in her seat and waited for me to fix her something to eat. Of course - I did not have dinner ready at 4:30 - so I pulled out a ravioli/green beans gerber meal and fixed it for her and put it on her new Dora plate. SHE ATE ALL OF IT!! Seriously! Then she kept asking for "more ravioli!" Then she wanted yogurt so I put her yogurt in the bowl and she ate all of it too!

I hope she keeps this up! :-)

Santa Baby...

I took Ava Grace to see Santa Monday night! She LOVES him! We stood in line for about 45 minutes and when it was almost her turn she started getting really anxious!! We sang Christmas carols to pass the time and she made a few friends in line. She told Santa that she wanted a Barbie Jeep and then she got her picture taken with him.

Merry Christmas!!

I Love Christmas!

I love the way it makes you feel. I love getting together with family. Sharing meals together. Giving presents. Decorating. I love the smells of Christmas. I love Christmas music. I love the excitement of Santa. I love the reason for the season. I love baking Christmas goodies. I love watching Ava Grace's face when she opens her presents. I love Christmas movies. I love hot chocolate. I love cold weather. I love shopping for Christmas presents. I love that I am off work for a couple of weeks. I love that Ava Grace is out of daycare for a week and we get to spend quality time together. I LOVE CHRISTMAS!!

Here are some pics that I have taken this month... ok ok ok - It's really ALOT of pics! But since I have been a blog slacker, it takes a bunch!
