Being a full-time mother is one of the highest salaried jobs in my field, since the payment is pure love.

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!
Elliana (and all of the Tozzi's) had an amazing Christmas. It was so wonderful to see Ellie's little face light up.
Elliana LOVED her Cozy Coupe from Santa. As soon as she came down stairs she ran right for it and jumped in. She refused to even leave her car for breakfast. Ellie spent over an hour in her new car. She wouldn't even open the rest of her presents because she was too in love with the car.
Should we consider this drinking and driving?
In the afternoon we spent time at Grandma and Grandpa's. Ellie ignored most of the toys and presents in favor of her favorite past-time -- tearing apart Grandma's Lazy Susan.
She did like her new rocking horse from Uncle Geoff.
And the day wore her out. She crashed on the way home, holding Julius and Grinch.

Christmas Eve

Merry Christmas Eve!
Today we celebrated Christmas with the Tozzi clan. Ellie loved opening presents at Grandpa's and spending time with her Grandpa.
Mommy was glad to spend some time with her baby.
Elliana left a plate of cookies and milk for Santa (and of course some carrots for Rudolph).
Then Ellie decided to eat Rudolph's carrots.
Hopefully Santa will make a visit tonight. Only he knows if Elliana has been naughty or nice! We will see in the morning what the verdict is!

Our Family -- Elf'ed

Copy and paste this link in your browser to see our family as elves!


We took Elliana to see Santa. She wasn't exactly thrilled with the whole thing. She did not like one bit of seeing Santa or sitting on his lap.

With Santa - or trying to escape from him!


Elliana decided to re-organize our DVD' her own special way! Busted by mommy!

Snow Princess

Elliana's first time playing in the snow. It took 10 minutes to bundle her up for about a minute of play. Mommy isn't too sure Ellie actually enjoyed the snow.

Cooking Dinner

Elliana decided that she would cook dinner tonight. Actually, she decided to grill. She made hamburgers. Yummy! She's such a great cook!
