This picture is of my nightowl child. I just put her to sleep because she's on a crazy schedule today. This 1:00 church is killing me! She should sleep right before we go to church, but that hasn't happened yet. She'll fall asleep in the car, but carrying her in her car seat into church wakes her up. Then she's tired, but not grumpy, but you know she should fall asleep. She'll nap for maybe 20-30 minutes during the second or third hour of church (thanks Kim!) and then again on the way home. When we get home she could eat, but today I thought I'd see if she could make it until 6:00ish and then be done for the day. The plan was working until we got home from my parents' house at 10:00and she was wide awake and ready to eat. I fed her and let her crawl around for a while, but as you can see from this picture she was tired. I just went upstairs and laid her down and she didn't make a single sound. So I don't know what to do about 1:00 church. If she was a great napper, I'd say just change her nap time, but her nap time is whenever she falls asleep. I don't want to feed her in the middle of church because it's a lot more now than just giving her a bottle. She eats a bowl of rice cereal and then some sort of baby food and sometimes a bottle on top of that. I think this year at church will be interesting as Bailey gets older and able to do more (including screaming in the middle of church).

It's not a great picture, but we put the twins in the same swing back to back. They could have stayed in the swing all day long, but there were a ton of kids at the beach so we had to share.
After I changed her diaper, I let her crawl around. She's really speedy these days!
This is what she looked like when it was time to go. She didn't mind being all sandy.
I'm so excited that this video actually posted. I've tried before and it didn't work. It's nothing too exciting, but she does get excited in the middle of it.
Here's another video of her crawling on the beach. It's a good one just so you can see how well she's crawling these days. This is also how she got so dirty. The sand was really black.
Despite this sad face, Kate did really like the lights too.Bailey had no fear of Santa this year. The twins were still traumatized by our mall Santa experience a few weeks ago and would not even come close to him. They would shout his name, but as soon as you took a step toward him, they would start really screaming. Bailey just wants to be held by anyone--even Santa. Owen liked the lights so much he wanted to eat them.
I love this picture of Kate and Owen. It took quite a few tries to get both of them looking at the lights. They look like a cute mini couple since Owen is standing on the curb he looks a lot taller than he really is.We even brought Doby along for this Christmas outing. I had to carry him because he was going crazy with all of the people around. He wanted to go up and greet everyone.We actually put Bailey inside the yard for this picture. We soon after got in trouble because you're not supposed to go on that side of the fence or touch anything--sorry!

Roxann loved the cape too, so we had to get a picture! I also had her in adorable tights with Christmas trees and red little shoes on the bottom.
Here's Bailey's favorite part of Christmas this year. I wrapped her presents in silver paper so she would like them.
Here we thought she was down for the count, but this little girl doesn't go down without a fight. She just doesn't want to miss any of the action. She's a sleepy santa baby!
Bailey is on her way out of this shot quickly, but don't they look cute!
Once were done with stockings, we moved on to the presents. Bailey noticed all of the presents around the tree and wanted to check them out. She turned into a baby Godzilla climbing over all of the packages and destroying the towers of presents. It was really funny! She wasn't angry or sad, but just screaming as she grabbed any present she could reach.
There was so much going on, that we didn't get Bailey to open her present. She just wanted to crawl around and look at everyone. I did open up her present the next day (we got her this toy that blows these balls up in the air)and put it together for her to play with. She doesn't quite get it yet, but she will soon.
The last phase of Christmas day was the trip up to my Grandma and Grandpa's house in Pasadena. It was a rather long trek this year because it was pouring rain the whole way up. A drive that usually takes us an hour and a half, took a good three hours. Luckily, we had Christmas music the entire drive and sang to our hearts' content. Once at Grandma and Grandpa's house, we again opened more presents. Bailey was surprisingly happy at this time, but she took an excellent nap on the way up. The babies all had lots of fun playing in the wrapping paper when it was all finished.
I couldn't resist taking a picture of her in a Christmas bag like a little present.
Here's all the grandkids and great grandkids with Grandma and Grandpa Mosher.Here's Bailey with her great grandparents. I really wanted her to wear a puffy winter vest on Christmas and this was the only one that I could find that was small enough for her to wear. Even this shiny pink number is a little big on her, but I thought it was cute.Here's how Brian and Bailey looked at the end of the day. Both of them were worn out from the long day, but it was well worth it.
Here's how we started the day. Look at cute little Owen in the back in his Christmas jammies. We hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas!
