Here is a picture of our new house! I started an album and will add more to it over the next few days as I pick up from Christmas. Right now it is just pictures of the outside of the house and Alexandra's room. We are going to paint her room the light turquoise color that is in her bedspread. I can't wait to paint and start decorating her walls.
We had a great Christmas this year with Nick's family. We spent all Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with them. Everybody stayed at our house for those two days. On Christmas Eve we did it Marco style with all the fish and singing. On Christmas Day Nick's Mom made a yummy brunch and dinner. Christmas was so much fun with Alexandra. She put out cookies and carrots for Santa and his reindeer on Christmas Eve. On Christmas morning once she saw that Santa had brought her a kitchen playset she had no interest in her presents, all she wanted to do was play with her new kitchen. She has been playing with it non-stop ever since. I can imagine that each Christmas will get more and more fun with her as her understanding and excitement about Santa grows.
We plan on having a very low-key New Years this year. My Aunt Pat arrives on the first and will be here for a month or so until I have the baby. We are looking forward to spending time with her. Later in January my Dad comes for his yearly monthly winter visit. We can't wait to see him too. Before we know the baby is going to be here too! We can hardly believe it!
