|Someone sure loves Santa|
The nearly 9 days we were at my parents we decorated cookies, mailed our letter to Santa, went and saw beautiful gingerbread houses, donated money to the Salvation Army (an idea to help teach Bailey about giving - from her Grandpa Smith - which I loved), went sledding with Skipper, watched the Peanuts movie at a theatre just for us, ate yummy food and played really hard and long - everyday. It was a wonderful Christmas and we can hardly wait for next year.

After getting home it was time to unpack and make room for new toys. Bailey didn't much like the idea of getting rid of stuff so I might be doing it very sneakingly. So far she hasn't discovered anything amiss - yet. Bailey continues to talk about Christmas, Santa, her elf Guillermo, her birthday and Disneyland and asks when we can go back and when is the next party we get to go to and when can she play and see her cousins again - so we are planning all that. Although, we probably should finish paying off the last trip to Disneyland before trying to go again. ;)
Visiting my work at the Marriott Library:
For New Years we went and spent a few hours with our family friends - The Jensen's where Bailey got her first eyeliner and cat eye. She loves makeup and can rarely leave the house without putting on some lipstick and if she forgets she tries to kiss me so that some of mine will rub off on her. What a silly girl. She is getting really good at putting it on. The rest of the evening was pretty mellow and I don't want to admit this, but we didn't bother to stay up until Midnight. Maybe we can do that next year. :)
Happy New Year adventurer's - 2016 is going to be a fantastic year. Until next time...
