Even though I had surgery a week or so before Christmas I was feeling just fine to fully enjoy the holiday.  My parents, my sister Krissy, Nick's parents and brother Steve celebrated with us.  We had the traditional Marco Christmas Eve of eating fish for about 7 hours and singing terribly. Alexandra LOVED the singing. The two pictures above in her purple and white dress were of her while she was singing.  As you can see she was very, very excited.  She loved hearing the rest of us sing. I don't think she wanted it to end. She kept asking, who's next, who's next.  She was so excited to go to bed that night so that Santa could come. She has never gotten into bed as fast as she did that night.  She woke up to a tree full of presents underneath.  Our toy inventory is ridiculous and their birthdays are in just a month!  Above are one of Alex's and Johnny's favorite gifts. Alex is on her new rocking horse and Jabba is in his new car. 

We didn't do too much on New Years Eve but spent New Years Day with Nick's family.  We have a busy next month with lots of birthdays. Nick turns 36 in just a few days. Johnny will be one at the end of the month.  I'm pretty sure he'll be fully walking by the time his birthday is actually here. He has started to take 2 or 3 steps at a time over the past few days.   And last but not least Alex will be 3 the beginning of February.  Where does the time go..........I uploaded a full album of pictures in the usual spot and there is a video of Alexandra singing her Christmas Eve song, Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer.  I'll post again soon. I promise not to take as long next time!
