December 2008

Can you believe that 2008 is over? This month, we celebrated Samantha's birthday
and went to California to celebrate Christmukkah. We didn't make very good use of our camera this month, and even forgot to take it with us on our trip. Luckily, there were other cameras there and we got a few pictures.

Happy Birthday, Samantha!


Amanda enjoyed climbing with Emma (in green) and Samantha (in orange).

Closing the bathroom door on Stacey brushing her teeth one morning:
"Good bye, Mommy. Have a good weekend in there!"

Merry Christmas!

Opening presents was very exciting. As you can see, Matty is just a little excited about his gifts.
Amanda was a little more sedate, but also had a good time.


Amanda got lots of fun things to augment her beautiful appearance:

Sunglasses and a matching purse


And hair clips! There's even a set for Mommy to wear!

"Can you do me a favorite?"

Opening presents is tough work. Amanda got a little sleepy and needed to lay down while coloring in her new book.

Hearing the chimes of the grandfather clock, Amanda asked, "Mommy, what was that?" Stacey said it was the clock. "Mommy, what was that?" Stacey again answered that it was the clock.
After thinking for a moment, Amanda said, "Mommy, was that the guacamole?"

"Yes, Sir" (to Stacey)

Matching Cousins


Amanda and "My Cousin Matty in California" have the same pajamas (purchased separately). How fun!

Amanda will only refer to him as "My Cousin Matty in California"
