Mia got a potty.
AND a princess dolly. She found a Christmas morning cozy place on Nana's lap. My parents were here for Christmas! It was great! They stayed home with Miss Mia while we went out--- I didn't want her going anywhere until after her biopsy. It was already postponed once.
Ellie opened a Barbie a large Doll, a Webkin, and a pillow pet.
Mia's favorite toy was a phone... she named it "HI!" and an Olivia dress up chest-

Hello Mr. Adorable! Have you ever met a happier kid? I haven't!
JB has a lot of nicknames for Sam... but my favorite right now is:
Sammamish. If you don't live in WA it probably won't make sense.
Jensen and Ellie sang "silent night" for the program.
Sam's circus trick... or just "the trick."
Ellie wanted to do one last "performance" she was supposed to do a tap dance in her candy cane costume, but her mother completely forgot her costume, and shoes, and music. woopsie.
Happily opening her gifts.

Mia was the lucky recipient of this "secret santa" treat. She ate off all the "num nums" and gave the rest to her siblings. It's just nice to know that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. John used to get angry when I would eat all of the moose tracks out of the ice cream. I don't do it any more... with the ice cream at least:-)
She had many skills. For example, she was a ninja. She practiced throwing her Chinese stars until she was able to split a hair at 50 yards. She was a cool ninja too. sort of a cross between the dragon slayer and shambo....also on the list of talents are: trapeze artist (blue belt,) underwater basket weaver, tree topping, monkey wrenching, snipe hunter, spelunking, heavy equipment operator, fence post straightener, bomb technician, pillow fluffer, piano mover, vampire bite survivor, poodle trainer, limo driver, and gas pump operator... to name a few.
His story got better with every page turn... you can imagine. Thanks B! Me love you long time.
