“Even when freshly washed and relieved of all obvious confections, children tend to be sticky.”  Fran Lebowitz

And Sticky she is!  

We decorated Christmas cookies which, of course, ended up more on her than in her.  I love the look in her eyes as she’s licking the frosting and sprinkles from her fingers.  It would be very interesting to crawl inside her little head and see the world through her eyes.  

And she loved bath time as much as she did decorating the cookies . . .

“The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree: the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other.”  Burton Hillis

This is baby girl’s second Christmas . . . she still doesn’t quite get what is going on but it sure was special for us to be here to experience her joy in “her party”.  She loved opening “her presents”.  She didn’t wake up until 8am . . . and even then was only interested in watching Dora on my iPad snuggled in bed with Papa G and YaYa.  By time Daddy and Mommy were up and moving around . . . we checked out stockings.  As per our tradition, we had our traditional Christmas Breakfast of Hungarian Bubble Ring, scrambled eggs and bacon before opening the regular presents.  I took this shot after all the presents had been opened, in the midst of the chaos.  She was more excited to rip the paper off the packages than she was in what was inside.  

So cute, and so much fun!  

The amazing thing about this shot is that both she and her Daddy are smiling . . . and at the same time!

“Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.”  Charles Caleb Colton 

I love this shot.  

We got Ella all dressed up to go around to the neighbors delivering Christmas goodies.  When we got back from charming everyone completely, I had to get a few shots of her all dressed up.  She was fine at first, but then wanted my nice expensive camera to play with.  I found my little point and shoot for her instead . . . and this is the result!  

Not only is this a DNA shot, but she is completely imitating what I am doing as I am shooting her!  Every time she pressed the button to take another picture, she would look at the screen and say “Perfect!”

How much more adorable can you get than that???

“I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.”  Charles Dickens

Merry Christmas to One and All!  

We’re back in the Bay Area for Christmas with our family.  Not much to write today as we are are trying to get organized for Christmas, and suffering from jet lag!  

Wishes for wonderful celebrations with family and friends . . .

“We make the world we live in and shape our own environment.”  Orison Swett Marden

And . .  . today is our last day in this gorgeous paradise.

It’s been a wonderful adventure for us, with lots of new discoveries, visits to old haunts, and just plain relaxation and kickin’ it!  Tomorrow morning early we head back to San Francisco Bay area for Christmas with family.  I think I’m ready.  The only reason I could stay longer at this point is if family could join us.  That’s not possible, so we will go to them.  Because there is nothing more important to me than my family.  It will be a magical Christmas this year with our little 2 year old Grand Daughter.  How can I possibly miss that??

I can’t and I won’t!
