The month started out with Kaylee's Red Egg and Ginger party on 12/02/2012. This is a Chinese tradition where you celebrate and "present" your child to family and friends when the baby reaches 1-month old. Here Kaylee is dressed in her princess dress.. ready to go and waiting for everyone. A lot of Tim's family and our friends attended the Red Egg and Ginger party and we had a great time! Thanks everyone for celebrating Kaylee's one-month birthday!
Every year it is always a goal of mine to give Dominic the type of Christmas I had as a child.. I have fond memories of Christmas, from going to my Auntie Carol and Uncle Miguel's home on Christmas Eve for dinner to my sister Lori and I waking my parents at the 'butt-crack-of-dawn' to open presents. I'm not gonna lie... when Christmas comes each year I become a child and I believe in the magic of Christmas.
This year Dominic also really got into Christmas... singing Christmas carols, helping me decorate the tree, and always asking me to turn the car radio to the Christmas music station. I love doing little special Christmas things with Dominic. On Christmas Eve, Dominic and I sprinkled oatmeal and glitter on the front yard. I told Dominic we were doing this so that Santa and the reindeer would see the sprinkles and know to stop by our house with presents. :)

We also baked sugar cookies for Santa and put out some carrots and celery for the reindeer.

We rang in the New Year with good friends at the Berberian home. We played poker up until the count down and Tim and I ended up the last folks standing in the poker game.
|Happy Hew Year's!|
