XMas 2010

Let the Xmas festivities begin!! What could be better than a three year olds' rendition of Rudolph? Well, honestly, not a whole lot.

Aside: Alexi was sort-of able to follow the Rudolph movie this year, but kept getting caught up on why the abdominal snow monster lost his teeth? Subsequently, he is not so keen on those people called 'dentists'....have to admit, I am right there with him, makes my mouth water just thinking about it....

On to the main man, Santa...

And then the day we had all been waiting for, or at least Alexi had been waiting for...true joy, ripping paper, overstimulation, jubilee, celebration and of course...Lightin' McQueen!! 

And Spidy too..

Matching jammies!! Alexi loves to scream, Mommie, wear your T-pants so you can be just like ME. No, I'm not sure what T-pants are either, but you get the idea....

And a game do you work this thing??

It was enough to wear out even a Pug. Pictured below, Theo hiding out with Charlie in the quiet basement...

Not pictured here (to protect the innocent) was the favorite present of the day... the whoopie cushion... enjoyed by adult and child alike. So much so, it was "blown" out w/in a few days...

Yes. One tired cowboy.

Wiped out from first ski lesson

Alexi ripper from 9 am to 2 pm. So tired on last run, he stopped once
on the hill, leanned forward, and passed out while standing.

Discover gateway photo shoot

 My boy made the cover!

Little bug, or should I say big bug as he is not so little any more (the guy is about one meter tall), did a photo shoot for the Discovery Center  Children's Museum at the Gateway mall.  He was so cute he made the cover of a membership drive brochure. 

Is this the beginning of an acting career?

High fashion modeling?

or just politics? 

Who knows!

Powerful stuff

There it is.

What will I find?

Cold but beautiful

On a cold day in our nations Capitol I visit the mall to take in the
African museum and natural history museum
