Christmas Joy 2012

Instead of reading all my favorite blogs I'm forcing myself to post myself. Its been too long and I at least need to get pictures up. There is a blog I follow and I admire the woman who writes it intensely anyway... she always writes about the little things and misses the big things because she says she wants it to be just perfect so she procrastinates. I realized --- that's me! That's why I STILL don't have Gianna's birth story up... or baptism pictures... After that major realization about my desire for perfection when I write about something big... I have decided to at the very least post pictures and realize something is better than nothing!

So Here are some fun Christmas pictures I got...

Gianna is so photogenic and Augustine is very much a moving target... but they are oh so cute! They love each other so much and it just melts my heart!

 Above: decorating cookies first time with my little family... this year they were gluten and dairy free for my new diet and they were YUMMY!

Nothing like a cozy bath... my little froggys after their evening baths.

 She is so trusting and he looks so suspicious... I just can't help but think he is going to get her into so much trouble! I have fond memories of getting into trouble with my brothers so its kind of a nostalgic thing but this time I'm the mom... "Hey you kids be good!"
"Who me?" (Angelic baby face)

Aunt Lisa gave her this dress and I meant for it to be Gianna's Christmas dress... but Gianna slept right up until it was time to go to Christmas Eve mass so... she just wore the dress I put her in for the day... but I got this cute pic for memories sake and it'll fit for her Easter dress! :-)

Such a handsome boy!

After mass we drove around looking at lights and enjoyed appetizers and drinks at
"Moscow on the Hill" what a memorable night!

Augustine danced and Gianna sat in awe of the accordion player. :-)
 A little Christmas music on Augustine's new guitar!

 Home-made Christmas apple pie! YUMMY! (I baked while Jeremy did all the cooking for the day... including a fabulous brunch and ham and potato supper!)
 Enjoying Christmas toys... Gianna's doll (not pictured) was a favorite.
It giggles and she loved to eat the baby dolls face!


Happy First Christmas Gianna and Stanbary's first whole Christmas in MN!
