Christmas Day

We had Jaime's family over on Christmas day for a nice dinner.  Unfortunately, I was too busy cooking to get in many pictures of the evening, here are a couple of the day.

Such busy days lead to a very sleepy girl.  We actually had to wake her up to look at the gifts from Santa.
Once she saw what was in store, she was wide awake!  This is her saying "ohhhhh!".
Loving her kitchen. 

Here she was saying "Nice plates!"
Playing a little computer game while waiting for our company to arrive.

Icing the cookies what were made the day before.  This was toooooo much fun!

Christmas Eve

It is tradition in both Jaime's family and my family to open up gifts on Christmas Eve and then do gifts from Santa Claus on Christmas day.  This year we decided to stay in Austin and went to Jaime's parents for Christmas Eve.  Jaime's sister was here with her family as well.  It was a great time had by all, mostly the kids though!

 One of Quinn's gifts from Mama Rose and Papa James.  She loves this table!

 But, I think she liked the backpack even more!
 She kept saying "Go to school!  Bye, bye, see you later!".  She looked so grown up with her little "pack pack" and her new running shoes.  (Sigh)

"My Colors"

Quinn has really been interested in coloring and using stickers lately. Here she is in action:

Trip to Phoenix

Jaime had a week long training in Tempe, AZ last week so we decided to tag along and spend some time with my sister and her family, and my brother and his girlfriend.  It was such a great time and as usual, Quinn had a BLAST with her cousins, Andrew and Olivia.  Here are a couple pictures of our visit:

Kiddie Acres

We are really enjoying this long holiday weekend and having lots of family time. Today we went to a little amusement park for toddlers called Kiddie Acres. It is small and looks like its been around since I was a toddler but was tons of fun! Quinn was a little reluctant at first but after she rode her first ride, she was hooked and couldn't wait to ride the next one! Here are some pictures:

 This was so funny- once the ride really started going, Q put her hands on her head as if holding her pig tails!  When she got off, she said "windy!!".
