Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas Everyone!! Isn't Christmas great?! I had so much fun this year. We got to celebrate a day early this year. Santa said he'd visit us a day early so Joe could be with us since he works on Christmas day. It was awesome. I didn't think that Santa actually came to our house though because I never heard his bells ring in the night. But, you know what he did come, I must've just slept through them.

On Christmas Eve, Mommy and Joe said I could open one present and my Christmas Jammies. I love my jammies. I don't ever want to take them off. In fact, I haven't taken them off except to go to my Abuelos for a fancy night with my Daddy and Martha.

See how cute they are?!

My arrangements for Christmas is that I usually get to spend Christmas Eve with my Daddy and his family and then he takes me home early Christmas morning to be with my mommy. But this year since at mommy's house we celebrated a day early I was able to wake up Christmas morning at Daddy's and stay there and play for a while. It was crazy cuz I woke up to go potty and walked pass the living room and there was all these presents...I had no clue Santa had already came. It was awesome!! I got everything that I asked for and plenty more. I love Christmas. I'm gonna have so much fun playing with everything!
When does Santa come again? Tomorrow?

I've got a knack for decorating

Mommy and I put out all the decorations for Christmas and did the tree all by our selves...well Joe did have to help us because some of the lights didn't work and we didn't know how to fix it, but he did.

I had the most fun pulling out everything from the containers and looking at it and remembering where it went last year. Mommy said this year we could pick out somewhere else to put it.

Here's how we did.

Our pictures didn't turn out very clear, but too bad.

Thanksgiving Weekend

This year I was lucky enough to spend Thanksgiving with my Daddy and his family. We ate dinner at Tio Carlos'. I had a ton of fun playing with my cousins and friends. I love spending time with them. My daddy dropped me off after all that excitement so that I could go to Sherwood Hills with Mommy and her family on Friday. We always go up there the Friday after Thanksgiving for a fun day at breakfast, bowling, sometimes we go to a movie or shopping. Then we always head back to the Hotel to swim and have dinner and play games.
This year we had family pictures when we got back to the hotel and then it was off to the swimming pool. I had a blast splashing around and swimming in the kiddie pool, I even went in the big pool for a minute with Kimi and Jared, but decided the small pool is better for me.
We had a very fun and exciting Thanksgiving Weekend.

Some things I'm thankful for:
My family
TV & Movies
Baby Brother

What's in a name?

A few weeks ago Mommy was explaining to me that Joe's parents were going to come and visit us. She was trying to help me learn their names. Papa Joe and Gramma Cheryl. Gramma Cheryl would be easy to remember because that's Noah's (my boyfriend from PreSchool) gramma's name. Mom said Papa Joe should be easy to because his full name is Joseph Alan Winkler, same name as Joe's and Zaden's is Zaden Joseph-Alan Winkler. Huh, they all have the same name! I started feeling a little left out. So I explained to mom that I wanted my name to be the same as theirs. Ivy Joseph Alan Winkler Marie Monroy, sounds good don't you think? So that is my new name. Mom and Joe kinda laughed but I was completely serious. I think they've realized that I was serious because I correct them everytime they say my name. It's not Ivy Marie, it's Ivy Joseph Alan Winkler Marie Monroy. Mom said that's how I'll know when I'm in big trouble, when she spits out that full name I'm in for it.
