Sweet Sunday

December 21st - January 10th
Catching up on all of our simple and sweet moments from the past few weeks.

getting dirty
Some critter dug a hole in the yard so Aria decided she needed to play in the exposed dirt and rub some on her tummy. She is so Chris' daughter.

kitty in the stars
The star box from Aria's 2nd Birthday Party has been adopted by the cat.

Hollywood Studios for Christmas Lights
From our trip to see the Christmas Lights at Disney's Hollywood Studios. We felt like singing in the rain.

apron twinning
Aria and I sported our new aprons to make cookies for Santa.

Chris' family came to town for a holiday visit.

reading all the books
She was so excited when I switched her Christmas books for her regular books. We've read them over and over. It was like they were all brand new again!

Beagle and his cone of shame
Baxter had a tumor that needed to be removed so Aria and I have been his nurses. She reminds me he needs his medicine and we take him on super slow walks around the yard. He gets to wear his cone for a whole two weeks, which he just adores. Chris gets to do the wound care though, because gag.

palm waving
Aria ran off towards the side of the house and the next thing I know she is dragging a palm branch back with her. She gets to the porch and starts waving it as high above her head as she can get it. Huzzah.

Wearing her safety helmet aka strainer while daddy zooms her around the house in her box.

taking a break from weed plucking
Contemplating life...and weeds.

gathering all the sand
silly poses with mom
spinning with dad
Just a quick trip to the beach before dinner. Aria was bummed we couldn't go in the water because it was too cold, but she made up for it by rolling around in the sand. I think she had a wee bit of fun even without swimming.

 So, I'm back! I was only planning on taking a break for about a week and a half, but I was enjoying the time off so much that I just kept on going. Mostly I dove into a bunch of books, and it was glorious. But, now I'm ready to hop back into my blogging calendar. I wouldn't want to miss documenting the good stuff, and I've missed keeping up with everybody else in blog-land too. Who is ready for a super belated Christmas post?

Have a Sweet Sunday!
