A Nutcracker Christmas

This year Zaela will have her first opportunity to strut her stuff on stage as a mouse in the Nutcracker Ballet! It has already been a demanding schedule for her star role for both Zaela and mom & dad. Wow, we had NO idea what we were getting into!!! She seems to love it so its all worth it!

Today we went to get a picture with Santa,,, her first one : ) She is only smiling because Santa didn't ask her if she has been Naughty or Nice!!!!

Starring Zaela Rose as Baby Mouse!

"4" and Fabulous!!!

Wow,,, our little girl is the big "4!" Such a fun age and growing up so fast! The good news is that she still wants to marry daddy because he is her favorite boy!!!! Let's keep it that way Miss Z!!

This year little Miss Z was quite demanding in the birthday party arena. Her wish list was: pretty plates, pretty napkins, pretty cups, a banner inside and a banner outside, a caterpillar cake, bug cupcakes, yummy food, balloons, and last but not least, a pinata!!!! Needless to say, she got her wish list and had a great time with all of her friends. We may have a future Events Coordinator/Party Planner on our hands! Of course, she wouldn't be our Miss Z if she didn't remind us a few days later that we should have gotten her a jumper??!?!!!*#%

In addition to her birthday party, she got to go to the San Diego Zoo and have a celebration with all of her friends at pre-school....the party kept going!

Halloween was especially fun this year too...she LOVES Halloween! This year she was Jesse so of course daddy had to be Woody! We were the Toy Story family,,,,Nikko & Matt will be proud ; )

Zaela's first bike.. one cute beach cruiser!

My little Ballerina!

Zaela started taking ballet and tap dance lessons last week! I have to say that one of the sweetest things in the world is dressing your little girl up in a tutu and watching her learn how to dance....priceless : ))

The OC Fair

Little Miss Z had a ball at her first visit to the OC Fair! As you can see she looooves Rollercoasters! That smile says it all! She also enjoyed the pony ride and her favorite Clydesdale horse named "Sammy," not to mention the deep fried brownies! It was a great day at the fair!!!

My first pet!!!

OK, so not exactly what one would expect....Introducing "Cowie!" Zaela has a pet cow (balloon that is!) She loves it and takes it everywhere she goes! LOL! Mom even had to chase it down the street yesterday when the the string leash broke...quite the sight as I am chasing a cow balloon down the middle of the street with Zaela screaming,,, but "We saved Cowie!" It was a Wonderpets episode right here on our own block!

Zaela also wrote her name for the first time on her etch-a-sketch! Here are a few photos to catch you up!
