Go Fish!

Last night Marshall and I taught Rolli and Viv how to play the Go Fish! card game 
that Aunt Janice gave them for Christmas.
Then this morning I came home from my jog to find Marshall playing Go Fish! with the kids
 while Colter happily slept in his new swing.
Such a sweet scene :)
(I'm not sure but I may have filmed the video without sound.  Sorry.)

Our Merry Christmas!

I hope that everyone has enjoyed a very merry Christmas!
Ours was rather nice :)
... even though Rolli barfed 4 times on Christmas Eve (yuck!)

This is how we woke up on December 25th.
The magic of Christmas is best viewed through a child's eyes.

Me and ColTee watching the blissful chaos that two 3 year olds opening gifts create.

Rolli with his new watch from Santa.

Vivian informed that it was a special day.
And that meant she could wear my lipstick with her new fairy dress :)

Yes, it was a special day for our fortunate little family.
Filled with lots of love from Grandmas, Grandpas, Aunts, Uncles and Cousins.
Thank you to everyone who makes us feel spoiled!

Santa is coming!
Well, actually he was already in Wenatchee for a short visit...

Santa and Colter Lee.
This little guy didn't even make a peep.
All snuggles in Santa's arms.
Dreaming about his Christmas wish.

The Wallace Family 5 and Santa.
I thought this would be the year that Rolli and Viv warmed up to the Ol' Jolly Man.
Clearly I thought wrong.
Both Rolli and Viv knew just what they wanted to ask Santa for.
We even practiced asking "nicely."

Rolli, "I would like a remote control monster truck.  I mean an airplane.  Please."
Vivian, "I would like a doll.  Please."
Viv  even said that she wanted a remote control baby doll at during one practice.

Then as soon as we laid eyes on Santa the twins lost all confidence.
In fact I had to tell St. Nick what was on their Christmas wish list.
So, once again.  We have a family picture with Santa Claus :)
