Christmas 2008

She's 2 1/2 now and was really into Christmas this year. While she wasn't scared of Santa, she still wasn't quite sure about him. I'm figuring that by next Christmas, Santa will be her BFF and she'll fill his ear with a litany of requests.

Here's just a sample of photos from her Christmas at our house and at home.

Unwrapping carefully


What a silly ball


On Grammy's lap wearing her new play jewelry and a red sticker on her forehead


With Uncle Adam


Playing Papa's piano -- she was crazy about Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star


On Santa's lap


Decorating a cookie in the elves kitchen


Look what Santa brought!




And gloves!


And boots!


I really, really like this


A girl has to keep her lips moisturized, doesn't she?


I like sparkly things


Rah, rah, rah! Three cheers for Santa Claus!


Is there a doctor in the house?

Three-for-One Update!

I was advised by my mother today that I've been derelict in my Grammy duties and have not posted photos in two months. So here are pictures sent by my daughter-in-law that cover several events -- the Alabama State Fair, a trip to the McWane Science Center and Halloween.

Corn dog! Yum-oh!

"So your right side is the most photogenic? It's my left side. Wanna compare?"


Fishes! Oh no!

"One ringy dingy. How may I direct your call?"

Grammy thinks this light peg wall at the McWane Center is the neatest thing she's seen.

Shade of Tom Hanks in "Big."

Say Beez!

Weekend with Olivia

Papa is gone to a volleyball tournament so Grammy went to visit Olivia. More photos will follow along with some video clips of her singing and playing. But here are photos to show just how much she's grown.

Swing me, Daddy!

Swing me faster!

Miss O in Action

She plays, she sings, she counts. Just watch below.

I just wish I could hold my foot and extend my leg like that. Oh to be so limber again.

I Scream, You Scream

Olivia screams for ice cream!
I think the photos are pretty self-explanatory and that she likes chocolate a lot.
