Christmas Day is here again!!!!

'twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house everyone was stirring because it was the annual Beardsley family Christmas Eve party, and we all knew our cousins and Santa would be there!!!

 Chrismas was full of family, fun and treats.  as usual, the girls were spoiled by aunt Tashy!
 Santa also knew just what each girl wanted.  a new baby, and baby bed, highchair, car seat, stroller, etc. for Avery!
 blue stuff for Madeline.  oh, and a new bike and scooter.  plus, uncle Ian brought the Aquabats pilot.  what more could you want!
 and a very special little lady, for a very special little lady!
we had a great time in California, but missed Barrett and Corbynn!  we can't wait for uncle Austy's wedding when we can really party down for a whole week!!!!

party time!

we had a fun time at our ward party, where the girls we able to meet santa and give him their Christmas lists personally!

 later that night they got to go to my uncle Jack's house and guess who  showed  up?  that's right, the big guys himself! this time, he gave the girls a present off their list!  talk about an exciting day!!!

 even i got to tell Santa my wish list!  he told me he sould see i'd been both nice and a little naught (;  it's true, he really see you when you're wleeping and knows when you're awake!

temple lights

we braved the cold and headed out to the Mesa Temple to see the Christmas lights.  the girls were enthralled wtih the beautiful lights.  and we were serenaded with beautiful carols as we strolled. 

 Avery was there too, she spent her time mostly in the stroller, otherwise engaged!

sleeping beauty

coming up the stairs i see Madeline's light is still on.  i open the door and see this:
 a familiar scene with a twist.  that's right, a little late night, covert reading under the bed. 

she was out like a light.  i had to drag her out from under there and lug back to bed.  she didn't so much as flinch.  then in the morning, i asked if she remembered being under there.  she said, "yeah, that's where i read at night."  i asked, "why under your bed."  the reply, "the light hurts my eyes."  my suggestion would be skip the late night reading and rest those precious peepers!

one tough little girl

Avery's been a little under the weather lately, waking nights, runny nose, crying, so i decided to take her in to the doctor before our holiday got into full swing.  the good news was: nothing was wrong.  bad news: she was behind in her immunizations.  poor thing got 6 shots to catch up!  she didn't even cry until the last one, and it was really more of a whimper.  like, "are you kidding me, when is it over!"  when it was done, she happily received 2 stiickers!  she's one tough baby. 

(now before i get any more advice on how i could have split up the visits, given her 2 or 3 at a time.....i'm aware, i made the choice to do it at once.  she was already behind a year, i needed to catch up!)
