Glory in the Highest

Halle has been singing this song for a few weeks now. We didn't realized they were going to sing it at the Christmas Eve service!

Here she is:

Cookie Making Fun

She just woke up, but is ready to bake.


Playing in flour, notice the pandas watching from above.


Messes are fun!


She was actually a really good helper.

Tasting the icing.

Is there a way of doing this without making a mess?


Her snowflake looked more like a flower.


My better half?


Guess who made what cookie.


More cookies.


Vanna White showing off her cookie.


Taste test...She didn't like it!

3 Amigos and a mommy taking pictures

We have a thing called The Cercone Pile. Usually, in all of this big house, you will find the four of us, piled onto 3 couch cushions...or a bed, the floor, etc. Here are some pics.

Spot the Willy dog.


The true meaning of a LOVE SEAT


How Willy looks out a window when the blinds are closed.


Halle's bruise. She got this at Food Lion when she fell on the floor and cause it all with her head.


2 Catscans later and we are cleared!
Luckily the glasses cover up the two black eyes.

to Grandma's house we go

We went and visited Grandma Levina a few weeks ago. Here are the pictures.

The Elf had a bath one day before we left.


The Elf packed his bag and went to Grandma's house too.


Halle and Daddy decorating a gingerbread house.


The final product.


Eating fun spaghetti at Grandma's.


On the way to the toy store, Halle rubbed pink chapstick all over her face.




exploring Oglebay.


Riding around looking at the lights.


She fell asleep about half way through the lights and slept the whole way home.


She really loves Peanuts. She likes the Christmas movie and does the following scene from it, "Lucy: Get these germs, get these germs...Snoopy: Wahhh (noise)...Charlie Brown: Oh Brother!"


Always my favorite.


Alex preparing to ceremoniously eat his last Twinkie.


He ate his first Twinkie at Grandma's when he was little, with a bandaid on his head.


I just like Grandma's face in this one.


Santa's Little Helper


We went to Cabella's.


She is afraid of the fish.

After Cabella's we went to the Russell Stover candy outlet across the way. All that candy and what does Halle buy? ANOTHER PANDA!

Christmas Trees and a new bathtub

We have 3 Christmas Trees up. The first tree we bought as a couple, our newer tree for the living room, and Halle has a purple tree. I love all of our ornaments on them. See if you can guess who's ornaments they are!

Our first tree. Pay no attention to the mess underneath it!

Halle's tree.

Do you know who put all these ornaments in one spot?

Alex gave me a new bathtub for Christmas. It was supposed to be a simple project, but when is it ever? After some help from Super Grandpap Jim we finally got the bath installed. With a new coat of paint on the walls, new floors and a new bathroom set, we are good to go. Alex says he isn't handy, but believe me, he is very handy. I've seen him do plumbing, painting, installing, construction, etc...and he always does an awesome job.
