To make up for my lack of posts and pictures, I have pictures ranging from her friend's birthday party to Jim's birthday, her recital, Christmas Eve, and this morning.

As close as we got to complete

Sera and her friend, Lily, having a girl's night. We decorated gingerbread men
and sugar cookies. Have you noticed how often Sera wears that princess dress?

First, I have to interject with a little story. Jim & I woke up and were surprised that Sera hadn't come into our room yet. I went to check on her and found her sitting on her bed looking out the window. She gave me the saddest face and said, "Mommy, there is no Santa Claus." In Sera-speak, this means she thought he hadn't come. I asked her why she thought that, and she told me that she waited and waited and never heard his jingle bells. I took her back to our room where she told Jim the same sad story. He volunteered to go peek while he let Shadow out. She was quite thrilled to realize that she just didn't hear the jingle bells in her sleep. She was quite excited when we came down the stairs.
Sera is in the more is not less camp of accessorizing
Merry Christmas from Magi, Jim, & our princess.
