Kate, it makes me happy to see Lia walking in for Christmas morning! She is too cute with her Baby Alive! And your cookies looked way better than ours did this year! I totally dropped the ball and poor Santa got Chips Ahoy! How sad!

We got great news today btw...

Happy New Year!
I'm so blessed to know you!

Rachel said...

Kate, what great pictures! The baby alive looks like fun - I know Lily would love that in a few years! Glad you had a good Christmas and Happy New Year to you!

Is that the baby that pees in her own potty after you feed her? Alexa wanted that and Santa told me he didn't want me to have to clean up pee on the floor this year. ; )
Lia will have fun with that!
Happy 2009!

What fun Christmas memories Kate! So fun to see Lia with all of her girly girl presents! Looks like she was sure loving her new baby doll too! We have a few of them here....but they are rather lonely! LOL!

Wishing you a very Happy 2009!

Kate is too cute for words! I love the boa pic...sister can work it, huh? I would love to see she and Paige together, as something tells me these two are a lot alike.

It looks like Santa was good to Lia this year. She is a doll and so glad she likes hers : )
Happy New Year!

Oh, I've missed so much! I took a bit of a blogger break and am just now catching up on my favorite blogs. Love all the new pictures and Christmas memories. I thought about Baby Alive for Leah, but decided it looked like a lot of work..let me know how it goes. ;)

Thanks for helping me with my new slogan..love it! I thought about "It's about time in 09!"

Happy New Year to your sweet family...hope 2009 brings fantastic things!
