Ok...this pic of Dylan is an optical illusion and definitely does not capture the mood of his day! I didn't witness this, but Kev did as he took the pic...this was the only gift he unwrapped on Christmas...it's no wonder that a ball (from Big Sis Hailey) could get our grumpy boy to smile...and cheer (he's holding the ball in his cheer hand!) :) I love this pic...it's the only one of him smiling on Christmas :) Below is Miss Shelba...all smiles with her Bitty Baby Twins...and their new outfits/nightgowns and high chair set from Aunt Sue....boy, she loved this stuff as you can tell by her face! :) And below that is Hailey with her cute new Webkinz...the white seal and lil' golden retriever (and ballet outfit)...she loves those Webkinz!
Me and my awesome new camera! I LOVE IT!!! :) Thanks Kev and mom and dad! :)
This is how Dylan spent most of his day....sleeping on one of us or on the couch...surrounded by his fav. things...balls and candy! :)
Here is Shelby in all her glory again...with her Twins and their matching outfits...just what she wanted! :) Thanks Nina and Poppy S.!
Here is Hailey with some of her loot
And Shelby with her loot
Dylan and his new personalized rocker from Nina and Poppi :) He loves this (and unfortunately so does Shelby...there have been a "few" fights over rocking time :))
Us at the Stegs on Sunday for our family Christmas....and the girls in their new AG ballet outfits. I love the leg warmers on Shelba :)
LOL...I love this...Nina and Poppy and kids and Bailey (the dog who sat so obediently in the pic)...and below is us and Kev's grandpa from OH :)
Well, some of you might know that we should actually be in GA right now, but alas...we are not :( Due to illness and exhaustion we have delayed our trip down south and are still sitting in the "comforts" or our midwestern home packing and waiting :( Bah humbug...just another thing to dampen our holiday spirit. I'm disappointed we'll lose a day in FL due to our late travel time...but we decided to make sleep and our sick boy a priority as we knew driving while exhausted and listening to a screaming child for 20 hours was not exactly a combination for blissful travel. So, tomorrow is our planned departure time and hopefully we can stick to that. Today we just had a sorta lazy day...we attempted "Christmas #2" for Dylan...but he pooped out and screamed after opening a couple gift so he still has a load of them under the tree to tear into in the New Year. I don't even know what to say about him...whatever nasty virus invaded his sweet little body...well, it has taken the happy/easy-going spirit out of our usually smiley boy and it has taken away a great part of our Christmas joy and that has made me a bit ornery to say the least. All I can say is we'd better all be healthy and happy for Disney World next week or I'm gonna cry me a river! Ok, so I didn't get on to wallow in my post-Christmas emotions...nor do I need any pity (but I'll take any that you have to offer! :)). Really...I just want to get to GA tomorrow safely and then to FL the next day and to have a quiet/easy drive. I really don't think that's too much to ask do you?! I'll miss blogging for the next couple weeks...I had hoped to post a bunch of Christmas pics today, but the day just didn't allow it...so I'll do one big ol' pic-fest when I get back. So, here we come GA, FL and Disney! YAY! Happy New Year everyone...and Happy 31st B-day to me while I'm at Disney!
