A quick birthday slideshow

From Birthday Party!

We had a wonderful time, and I am still recovering! Here are a few pictures - of course we didn't wipe the pizza off her face before her photo ops, but that's okay :)

Christmas pictures

So Christmas has come and gone and life is getting back to normal around here - and I finally got around to taking the pictures off my camera. Here are a couple of them - unfortunately I didn't get any still photos of Christmas morning because daddy filmed the whole thing on our (ancient) video camera and I need to find a way to get it onto the PC. Aurora made out like a bandit - she got so much stuff we had to hold some of it back so that her birthday wouldn't be a complete letdown! :) But she loved just about everything she got - especially her monkey shoes from Aunt Doreen and all the awesome books from Aunt Lora!

Snuggling in the blanket GG made (with the dragon and mouse mommy made)

And I don't know why these pics aren't coming across all the way, but if you can't see the whole thing just click on it!
Holding Jenny the Gingerbread baby that GG made - she carried that doll around everywhere! (Side note: How can anyone resist nibbling this kid's cheeks??)

Mommy's Aurora's favorite Christmas present

And the family gets a Christmas tree too! Next I plan to make curtains, bedspreads, rugs.....
