catching up.

more than a few of my favorite things...

Photobucket
...beckham seeing his 'bebe' and wanting to play with her...
Photobucket
would lily mind if i give her a kiss???
Photobucket
nah. she won't mind.
he did this uncoached for about 10 minutes. beckham is one of the most lovable little guys i have ever known. he is one of my favorite things for sure (and lily too!)
Photobucket
...peyton's sensitivity is endearing, however, it can turn into full-blown hysteria
when gets a time-out.
poor girl thinks she will be there forever.
no worries baby girl, it's just 4 minutes long.
Photobucket
...packed up christmas decorations only to be seen once a year like this picture of jeff and i on our first christmas together...15 YEARS ago!
Photobucket
ha ha. beckham wanting to eat tarts every single time he has access to them. i found this laying on the table and beckham spitting wax out of his mouth.
i love how it looks like he took a bite out of it.
Photobucket
...these two loving on each other the way they do.
Photobucket
...peyton unable to control herself from dancing when happy music is on.
Photobucket
...new friends we adore.
Photobucket
...the way beckham loves his sito...
Photobucket
...and gido.
Photobucket
...the way our stockings look, reminding me that we are family with our own little traditions to share and pass on.
Photobucket
...special little photo ornaments on our tree.
Photobucket
...blue jeans on my little guy!
Photobucket
...walking in and seeing peyton rocking a baby, i mean a GLOW WORM that she 'swaddled' herself. smiling proudly to me, like she knew i have been aching for her to nurture/want/love her own little baby doll like she used to do. her face was priceless. becks ran over to get in on the action. five minutes later, my baby doll bliss was shattered
when i found mr. glow worm thrown to the floor. forgotten. left.
damn. i'll keep trying though:)
Photobucket
...what? i happen to love fish sticks and green beans. i really do find this a treat. i would eat this over a steak any day. weird, i know. i think it's more weird that i took a picture of this.
Photobucket
...potterybarn magazines. love all the ideas-i will do this wall. i wrote it, now i have to do it!
Photobucket
...jeff laughing it up over and over again at dinner.
"jeff, do you think the girls would notice if we left and went to the ale house to watch the game?"
Photobucket
...at donna's place, lucarelli's, enjoying the music and the pizza!
one of my most favorite things to do ever is cook with peyton. i enjoy it so much. she is helpful, eager to learn, and so fun!!! she is learning how to read the measuring cup, sift flour, and most recently...make cut-out cookies! i never want this to end. i picture us years from now, cooking a big family meal together. laughing. loving. enjoying.
i can wait until then. however it is a big dream of mine and until then, we will make our little cookies, sauces, veggies-memories!!!

loving this time of year and all the joy it brings. it is like having a really busy year and needing to recharge your batteries. rest. recoup. this is what the holidays are for me. they fill me up until next year when we start it all over again.

Thanks for stopping by my blog & leaving your mark!

I just finished a new post & it is so very similar to yours ... how crazy is that? I guess it's not really that crazy, just two mamas enjoying and loving all that surrounds them, especially during this beautiful season!

Cute blog, precious family!
