The three musketeers. How cute is this?
Sunday, December 20, 2009
Listen buddy, I gotta be honest, I really don't like you. I mean...who the hell walks around in a red furry suit and fake beard and yells "ho ho ho" anyways?? I really don't understand your appeal. When my Mommy put me on your lap, I thought, okay, I can do this...then I turned to face you and saw the scariest person alive. Were you planning on eating me?!
You made me cry and scream for my life, and nobody cared. Instead, my Mommy and Daddy stood there laughing and trying to make me look at a camera...what gives? You give me the hee-bees. Please stop going around making kids cry. I know I'm supposed to ask you for something for Christmas, so here goes...Please, I beg of you...DO NOT come to my house on Christmas Eve. I never want to see you again.
Your (not so) Friend,
I had SUCH a great time seeing you today. I was so excited when Mommy told me we were going to have a visit, and even better, take a PICTURE with you. Wow, I really am a lucky girl.
I have to say, I was a little surprised when we pulled up to the mall instead of the North Pole, but then my Mommy explained that you were just renting a space there in order to see all the kids in town, so that's cool.
I'm sorry if I seemed a bit forward when I first saw you and yelled: "Hi Santa..it's ME, Ava!" at the top of my lungs. I was a little sad I had to wait in a line to see you...all those other kids can't be as important as me...can they? When my time finally came, I was so excited, I jumped right on your lap, remember? I was the one who told you about my new Christmas dress and my white tights and my sparkly shoes...the one who wouln't get off your lap after the photo was taken? I hope you were pleased, I really wanted to make a good impression.
Just in case you forgot, I really, really want a pink doll with pink hair and I want to call her Pinkey. Got that? Pinkey.
Well, I've gotta go practice being a "good girl" some more. My Mommy keeps reminding me that you're going to be really mad if I don't listen to her. She keeps telling me she's going to call you everytime I do something wrong...I wish I knew how to erase your number from her cell phone.
Well, It was great seeing you. Isn't our picture the cutest? Too bad my baby brother was crying the whole time. Just remember that I love you. I'll be looking for you Christmas Eve.
Lots of Love,

And this was what I wore for the big performance...

My mother is very jealous because Miles can roll his tongue and she cannot. This is his favorite sound to make, whether he's happy or pissed off... he tells us what's up with a "rrrrrrrr" I think he'll be an excellent Spanish student.

Ava has become quite the little drama queen these days... the following video is just one example of the many fits I see every single day. I try so hard to ignore it, but sometimes I just have to laugh at her. Egging her on probably isn't the best thing to do...but at times, I just can't help myself! My mom says I was exactly like this at her age...if that's the case, I have the feeling I'm in for some major payback. Is it too late to say I'm sorry to my Mom for the way I behaved??

We arrived home from Seattle last night and I immediately rushed over to the hospital, only to arrive minutes AFTER Carson was born!
The proud parents didn't have a name for him right away, but soon decided on Carson (a name Jadyn gave them. It's from the cartoon Clifford!) and Stone (for any of you who know my Dad, he has told you the story of how he wanted Jadyn to be named Stone... or...STONE VIGELAND (said in a very loud football announcer voice) if she were a boy, and then Jake...but it never came to be...Kylie and Ole settled on the middle name to honor my crazy father's wishes!) All I know is I am so excited to have another nephew to spoil and love!

It's cold here in Bend, so in order to complete the outfit, I just had to put on my 80's inspired stripped puffy vest. This kept me warm and added even MORE great color to the ensemble. Simply Divine!

Don't worry, I've got the answer...Make a statement with lots-o-necklaces!! This "piled on look" is all the rave in Hollywood these days, so why not create this for yourself?
If a bright colored patterned dress isn't doing it for you, glam yourself up with accessories galore!
It's easy, just grab your mommy's shoe box of old jewelry and put EVERYTHING on. I promise you'll be the envy of every preschooler on your block.
Warning: All of these necklaces can weigh you down, and you may need to discard a bunch of these mid play-date. If this happens, be sure to have your mommy help you take them off, or you'll end up getting them all stuck in your hair like I did, ouch!

According to all the fashion mags, bright colors are in this season, so Ava suggests wearing a bright colored tutu and leggings for that pop of color. Then match that up with any dingy sweatshirt and be sure not to brush your hair to give you that
"Just Escaped from the Insane Asylum" look.
This look is great for trips to Costco and the drug store with Mom. It can also be paired with a pair of snow boots and a rain jacket for those cold winter days. I just love the comments I get from all the people in the store, they love me, they REALLY love me!

Mr. Miles is doing great as always. This is his favorite face to make, he loves to suck on his lower lip. The alligator is his new best friend. He has to have it whenever he sleeps, loves to chew on it's tail. I guess it's better than than a binkie like Ava had!
