My sweet AB

My AB (Aunt Betsy) is so sweet. Even though we could not spend Christmas with her in New Orleans, she still sent a box full of goodies to our house. I got a Le Petit Prince pop up book (The Little Prince- for those of you who don't speak French) and a designer sweater and skirt that can be worn multiple ways. Mom and dad got monogrammed stationary by a local New Orleans artist, monogrammed mugs, French soaps and an international transit guide book (perfect because we love to travel so much and we love public transportation too). Mom also got a beautiful orange ostrich clutch by Rebecca Minkoff. Here is a photo of me in my new outfit, it's a little big but I heard that's how Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen like to wear their clothes too :) Also a photo of dad wearing my skirt as a hat! My AB always picks out the best things and has so much style (She writes a fashion blog called Sass and Seersucker) It's a never ending Christmas! Thanks AB!

My first Christmas

I spent my first Christmas in Washington D.C. with my mom and dad, Aunt Jennifer, Uncle Mike, Meme, Grandpop, and the dogs- Bowie, Sophie and Chloe. Full house! Uncle George, Aunt Cindy and my cousins Garrett, Jordie and Graham came over to Aunt Jenn's house for Christmas eve and we went to church at All Saints (where I was baptized). I got so many presents- a hammer game, a ferris wheel game that rotates eggs, a walker that I push around to learn to walk, a learn to read program for babies (as seen in TV), stuffed animals, books, tons of clothes and plenty of new empty boxes to play with. Meme cooked tons of food all week and mom says she has probably gained at least 5 pounds! We also went to look at the amazing Christmas lights at the Mormon church in Kensington and to the Botanical Gardens on Christmas Day. Anyways, I think I really like Christmas...peace!

Ready for the BCS Championship

Aunt Jennifer gave me one of my Christmas presents early, an LSU Tigers fleece onsie. This is actually more of a present for mom because she is so crazy about LSU football. She wants me to wear this costume everyday until the BCS Championship on Jan. 9th! I'm ready though...Geaux Tigers!

Staying up late in Madrid

In Madrid, people wake up early, have a long lunch, take a nap, go back to work and have a late dinner. This is me at dinner at 10pm which is my normal bedtime! I heard the food was amazing...

Flying fine

This is my first cross Atlantic flight! Finally got a stamp on my passport. They had plenty of pillows and blankets for us on Continental so I slept the whole way to Madrid!

I am so sick!

Think I caught something on the airplane from New Orleans. I'm sneezy and coughing and with a runny nose! But even though I feel terrible, I am still smiling and talking and playing happily.
