Happy 2013!!

We arrived home yesterday after being gone since December 16 (minus two brief 24 hour stays at home to do laundry & repack). All of that said, there is a lot of blog updating to do, but until the dust settles (and is vacuumed back up) I will leave you with some entertaining videos of Lil’ A.

We lament how little we video Alexa as she is quite the performer. Luckily, my sis captured a few of these videos for us. I hope they put a smile on your face as you take down the Christmas decorations (sniff, sniff), recount the blessings of 2012 and celebrate the arrival of 2013.
**Please forgive attire & hair. This is how Alexa vacations with family.

Joy to the World
Notice how she says “Let every heart ‘repair’ Him room.”

Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star
We recently told some friends that having a girl is like experiencing a “spontaneous musical” everyday – drama & stereo sound included.

Jesus Loves Me
An impromptu session while reading her “Jesus Loves Me” book from Ama & Opa. Yes – those are star balloons next to her. Thanks Pop & Mimi for such a fun Christmas gift. See Alexa’s reaction to the balloons below.

I joked that all Alexa needed for Christmas was a bunch of balloons. As you can see – I was right. She was thrilled and busted out into her “I love balloons” song (thanks to Little Einstein). It was difficult to get her to unwrap anything else.

Alexa twirling
This video is for Ama since I was trying to describe to her how pretty Alexa’s Christmas dress twirled. She loves to spin in it.
