♥♥♥♥ our xmas card this year ♥♥♥♥ seeing santa was a complete bust -- great in theory; horrible in execution! skylar clung to bri & i like white on rice & wouldn't even look at santa. oh well... maybe next year? and can i say that i don't really blame her -- he was the skinniest creepy santa ever! boo hiss @ skinny santas -- so wrong on so many levels! gimme a *bowl full of jelly* anyday!
skylar was game to go out to eat though... and sadly the only place she will eat at is our local hometown buffet. if you are unfamiliar with this chain -- be thankful! but my picky eater daughter will eat just about anything from this place so we end up going here quite a bit! a weight watcher's nightmare i might add! all you can eat food is never a good thing! these are her attempts @ smiling for the camera... heh!
i hope everyone has a wonderful weekend -- whether it is spent celebrating christmas, yule, or festivus! make memories, love loudly, & revel in the smallest of moments!
so this is what's been going on in my neck of the woods...
our little angel -- sleeping on mommy & daddy's bed -- of course. yeah -- she still comes in our bed. but how can you say no to that face??? skylar had her 2 1/2 year check-up last week -- here she is looking like such a big girl waiting to see her doctor. she is perfectly a-ok & healthy as can be. we are so blessed. dining room is decorated & looking oh-so-pretty! sky's morning ritual -- propped up with pillows on mommy & daddy's bed, friends nearby & her frisbee with teddy grahams. yes, teddy grahams for breakfast AND in a frisbee -- still. sigh... please don't call dcyf on my less-than-desirable parenting skills. if your child was as picky of an eater as skylar is you would allow them to eat whatever out of whatever too! skylar the little artist! her first time using paint & she did awesome! skylar l♥ves anything artsy & crafty! she got that gene from my mom & it obviously skips a generation... mommy & skylar ♥♥♥♥♥ with just 4 days until xmas i hope everyone is holding up... not stressing too-too much... and not getting caught up in the hype that we don't do enough. we all do enough!
today we are off to see santa. sky promises that she won't freak out & will sit on his lap. i will believe it when i see it!
hold her a little longer rock her a little more tell her another story (you've only told her four) let her sleep on your shoulder rejoice in her happy smile she is only two and a half for such a little while! ~author unknown~
so vibrant so full of life our darling little girl!
