Trimming the Tree

It's that time of year again. Time to set up the Christmas decor. Since David actually had Sunday off we set up our tree. Aleecia did a fantastic job of placing all the ornaments on the bottom half of the tree and David did the top. Mia even got to place an ornament after she slobbered all over it. We love our Christmas tree even if it looks a little anorexic.

Mia's favorite toy

Mia has a new favorite toy. It is my cell phone. I used to let her play with it without key lock but, she started making phone calls to people in my phone book. Then I started to let her play with it on key lock until she called 911 twice! My phone is stupid. If you have it on key lock and push a certain button it gives you three options: Cancel, Unlock, or Emergency Call. Twice now Mia has pushed the Emergency call button. The first time she was playing with it on my bed and I could hear a ladies voice saying "Hello, Hello". I grabbed the phone and it had already hung up and then immediately they call back saying they had a 911 call from my phone. How embarrassing to tell them that everything was okay and that it was just my 7 month old baby who called. The second time I was just furious that it happened again. I don't want to hold up the operator when she can be making real emergency calls. Yes I still let her play with my phone occasionally but I keep a close eye on making sure she doesn't push that one button.

Princess Classics on Ice

Because David spoils his little girls we went to see Disney Princess on ice. Aleecia loves Cinderella and kept asking me when Cinderella was coming out. I told her they save the best Princess for last. She wanted her to be first. Aleecia and Mia both wore their Cinderella dresses. Aleecia got a Cinderella doll for a souvenir (big surprise).

"Fake Tooth"

This was Aleecia's attempt at tricking the tooth fairy.

The other night while I was tucking Aleecia into bed I spied her sliding this under her pillow. What looks kinda like a small tooth is actually a small bead that had broken off of one of Mia's socks. Aleecia thought she could get some extra cash off the tooth fairy so she snuck this "fake tooth" under her pillow in hopes the tooth fairy would come. Unfortunately the tooth fairy was not fooled. Darn tooth fairy!

My favorite part of Halloween is the costumes! This year Aleecia wanted to be Cinderella and Mia was a pony (Aleecia helped grandma pick out her costume). While waiting to go trick-or-treating Aleecia was riding her scooter. Her dress got caught in the wheel and tore the bottom of her dress. For those who know Aleecia know that she destroys nice dresses. Aleecia got a lot of candy and Mia was cute in her little costume.
