Oliveira Christmas 2013

We celebrated Christmas with the Oliveira side of the family on Christmas Eve.  I wish we lived closer so that I could see them more often - whenever we get together it's a hilarious blowout of jokes, insults, and general troublemaking.  

Olive and Buster enjoyed playing with their cousins, uncle Mike and aunt Marcia, and their Nana and Papa.  Except when they didn't and had minor meltdowns - but that's kids for you!

Rufer X-mas Party

I love this crazy family of mine.

Prince Filip

Our three year old is in love. His name is Filip and she calls him her "prince". They are classmates and everyday she asks us when he is going to come over for a play date. Every other day she asks when he is going to come over for a sleepover!! I didn't think I would have to start thinking about this for at least a few more years…...

The Cahn Holiday Card

For months we have been talking about doing a holiday card. Both Andrew and I had cute ideas - but neither ended up happening. Our first attempt was right as Olive and I were getting sick. Needless to say - I could barely keep it together and we quickly aborted our mission (I will post a pic of that later). A week ago we tried our second idea (I'm keeping it a secret because we are definitely doing it next year!). It quickly became apparent that we wouldn't have enough time to make it perfect so we had to rethink the whole Christmas card.  

In the end…..and due to little Buster finally getting our sickness…we took photos at home in the vain of Idea #1. It was late at night. We were rushed. Everyone was annoyed - especially the kids (you'll see). And not one picture was useable. But in all honestly - I sort of love it. It's sort of perfect.

And no - the above picture is NOT our Christmas card photo. You'll just have to check your mailboxes to see it!

It's Beginning to Look a lot like Christmas!

Last weekend we got our Christmas tree and decorated it. Unfortunately we weren't feeling well enough to take photos - so I'm posting a few pictures of my favorite ornaments. I have to say - our tree looks pretty good this year!

Here is a vintage train from when Andrew was a kid!

A cute little gingerbread man that we picked up somewhere along the way.

A tree with cute little buttons…

And a little owl that grandma made us a few years ago.

Party time at the Park

Here are a few pictures from the park last weekend. Sadly, I was down for the count and resting at home. It looks like everyone had a great time though!
