A Little Touch of Blue

I love the traditional colors of Christmas...but I am adoring the hint of blue in these pictures..
Also did you notice the Christmas tree in the first picture...hello champagne mom has a few of these...I am going to have to put a wee tree in her entrance and do it just like this one ...I bet she would love this color blue as to find robin egg blue ornaments!
Oh Joy!!

CeCe was invited tonight to a sleepover with Jake and Elle..her Cousin's...I can not tell you how much she loves these two...She lights up like a Christmas tree at the very sight of them and asks us a million times a day..."What do you think Jake and Elle are doing?

Tony and I where delighted to have a free night..and had a million ideas what to do with this free time...but do you want to know something ...we spent most part of the night wondering what CeCe Jake and Elle were doing...funny...she is not even gone 12 hours And I miss this little soul more then anything...

Georgi and John her Aunt and Uncle are pretty hip she always has a ton of fun there.

When we called tonight to see how she was doing ... she was busy making Christmas cookies and really didn't want to come to the phone...We had a little giggle over this!
