I Wanna Be Like Mommy

She walked into the livingroom one night last week wearing Mommy's hat. Then Grandma Hoffman and Grandpa Stevie brought her her own purse. She won't stop carrying it around!

Our New Room

For those of you that don't know, we just got a sun/screen room added on to our patio area. This is going to be Piper's play area. They just finished yesterday and it looks great. We are so excited that we'll be able to get Piper's toys out of the livingroom and have some more space. This is what it looks like right now, but a few things will be changing after Christmas.

Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party

Tuesday was Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. It was a lot of fun. The shows and decorations were awesome. And we were excited to see the new parade! Here's a couple pics!

Holiday Photo Shoot

Now that most of you should have received your Holiday cards by now I'm putting up the photos. We took tons of photos that day. These are our favorites, so they are the ones we had to choose from!

Maingate Christmas Party

Last night was the Maingate Kid's Christmas Party. Maingate is the building that Daddy works in at Disney. Piper had fun running around, meeting new kids and characters. She was a bit moody, but overall we all had a good time.

The Last Night of Hanukkah

Last night was the last night of Hanukkah. Piper helped Daddy light the candles and opened her last present. It was a set of Jewish holiday wooden puzzles. And her last present from Grandma Hoffman and Grandpa Stevie was a Hanukkah book. She also got a gift from Judy... Elmo, Cookie Monster, and Oscar the Grouch singing on a sleigh. She loved her last gifts and loved celebrating Hanukkah.

MGM during the Holidays

After almost 8 months, we finally got to meet Cody, our friends Terri and Corey's little boy. We met Terri and Cody at the big Disney sale (they didn't have anything good). Then we headed over to MGM for a little fun before we watched the parade. After the parade we had a meet and greet with Santa Clause. Uncle Jeff was very good friends with Santa, so it was an extra special first visit of the year with Santa!

Piper and Cody ready for some fun!

Piper LOVED Handy Manny, she didn't want to leave him!

This is the best we could get, they wouldn't look at the camera!

Kisses for Cody!

Santa said, "Happy Hanukkah Piper and Merry Christmas Cody!"

First Visit of the year with Santa

Mommy and Daddy too!

Last night was the first night of Hanukah. When Daddy got home, we lit the candles and Piper got to pick one present from the basket to open. She also got to pick one of the presents from Grandma Hoffman and Grandpa Stevie.

We wanted to take a picture of her next to her present, but she was too in awe of it!

Our Holiday Wreath

Yesterday Mommy got some supplies at Michael's and spent the afternoon working on a special project. This holiday wreath for our front door was the outcome of an afternoon of hard work!
