Poor little, tired, boy

After spending 5 days at my in-laws and a 5.5 hour drive back to be at a family Christmas party and then several hours at a Christmas party, this is what Dominic looked like the next day in the middle of the afternoon. We were decorating for Christmas and putting up the Nativity set when I looked over and saw Dominic falling asleep on the floor. He slept for almost 3 hours (don't worry I moved him to the couch after he was really out). He ended up with a fever that night but was better by the next day. 11.30.09

How sweet is this?

Most of the time the kids do a lot of fighting at night running back and forth between each others beds saying "mom, Dominic is in my bed again" or "Bella won't leave me alone!" So you can see why this is so sweet to find them asleep together especially with the row of stuffed animals above them.
The kids told Michael once that some times at night they like to play "mommy & daddy" Michael said how do you play that? The kids replied: "you just lay in the bed next to each other and snuggle"--pretty sweet. 11.19.09

Dominic is turning 4

To no surprise Dominic requested a Superman cake for his 4th birthday party. It took a LOT of food coloring to get the vibrant colors worthy for Superman....but in the end it turned out good. Dominic was happy even though the icing was bitter from all the food coloring. He was so cute going around all day asking when his party would be and proclaiming "today I am the birthday boy!" I loved it. He was thrilled with every gift he got and went to bed tired but happy as he clutched his light up batman figure while he slept. This morning I watched him force himself to wake up so he could change into his new Superman shirt and go play with all his new toys. His real birthday is Wednesday so we told him he can be the birthday boy for three more days. I can't believe he is really 4 years old! 11.15.09

Isabella the model

Last year Isabella got to be part of Hallmarks Christmas decor in the stores. She had gotten selected to be a model for their photo shoot after we were referred by a friend. Here are some of the pictures that were displayed in the stores. (we asked if we could have them after Christmas and the manager gladly let us take them home). So in case you missed seeing her in the stores last year here is a glimpse of the photo shoot. How sad is it that it took me almost a full year to get pictures taken of them!! 11.09
