you were a good year to me!

January-  brought 2010 in, with a kiss to my belly!

February- brought my little Princess into the world!

March- celebrated our first 'Dishing with Diva's' ...'Breakfast at Tiffanys'
celebrated a BIG birthday for Nonna...
don't worry Nonna... not sharing the number! :)

 April- celebrated Kenley's first Easter & celebrated my birthday!

May-celebrated my FIRST Mother's Day
with my Momma & Miss Priss!

June- introduce Miss Priss to the POOL!

July- was bittersweet, celebrated Fourth of July with Miss Priss down South with family,
but yet on July 22nd, marked a year of when I had a huge loss...  -ZTK-

August- celebrated summer... STILL...
with mini parties by the pool!


October-  visited a Pumpkin Patch & celebrated Kenley's first Halloween!

November- VOTED!
  But (again) was a hard month because November 23rd is the birthday of my friend,
who I lost last year.
But then we had Thanksgiving and it just reminded me to be Thankful for what I do have...
my little Princess!

December- visited Santa, did A LOT of SHOPPING & celebrated Kenley's first Christmas!

bye bye 2010!
May 2011 be just as good!

Christmas Eve & Christmas Day Recap...

COMING SOON, promise!

As you may know I TAKE A LOT of pictures...
unfortunately the laptop can not hold all of them
thankfully Santa brought us a external hard dive for Christmas-
so I'm trying to get it all organized onto disks before transferring them
SO all Christmas pictures will be up probably next week!

In the meantime I HOPE everyone had a wonderful CHRISTMAS!
& hope Santa delivered fabulous goodies!

CLAUS... take 2!

since the first visit didn't go so well...
here's our second visit to see Santa...

of course it was all caught through pictures!

 our wait to see Claus!

we were part of the crazies who went to go & see Santa on Christmas Eve!

looking at all the pretty decor, while waiting!

& making friends!

having a few snacks

got to look pretty for Santa...
can't have any crumbs on the face!

having some water!

with Nonna!

waiting to see Santa works up an appetite!  

here they are... 

yup, we waited for one hour and 45 minutes for that!

My poor baby girl did NOT like Santa...
not at all!

I felt like the worst Mommy in the world for making her sit there, 
while crying & screaming just to get pictures of it!
But as soon as we walked away she was back to her happy self!
And when she looks at her picture with Santa she smiles & laughs!
HOPEFULLY next year, will be better...
because I don't think I can do that again!

Dear Santa,

over the weekend I took Miss Priss to the mall to get her picture with Santa...
or at least that was the plan!
apparently Santa takes many breaks to "feed the reindeer's" 
& these reindeer's are very very hungry
because we kept missing him!
I still managed to get cute pictures & a memory that will forever stay with me of her
thanks to Macy's!

If you don't already know about the write your 'Wish List' to Santa at Macy's... 
they have a place set aside in the store for little ones to write out their wish lists 
and then mail it to the North Pole for Santa to read!
Which I totally forget about until we stumbled across it while shopping.
So of course Kenley had to do one... okay I had to do one for her!
 As I finished out her WL for Santa... I stood her by the big mail box to drop it in(a great photo op too)
and this all happen to be set up by the jewelry department
which Kenley noticed
because she took off straight to the jewelry cases!
I was such a proud Momma!
I wish I had it on video... but we do have it in pictures Thanks to Nonna!

and so here they are...

 posin' for Nonna!

 helping me write out her Wish List to Santa

 so excited! "are you watching Nonna...?"

 signing her name

 Dear Santa,
For my first Christmas I would like... 
a puppy
anything & everything in PINK!
a laptop like Mommy's
& lastly my two front teeth!

 with love

  holding on to her letter!

now here's come the funny part...

 ohhh JEWELRY! 



I'll take this one, and that one, and ...
That's my GIRL!

okay back to the wish list!

 just a wee bit short, so she needed Mommy's assistance!

sitting with her little Santa...
YES we turned Macy's into our own little photo shoot!
maybe I can just photo shop Santa in there!?
