a reindeer caught in the headlights AND the gingerbread monster

allison hasn't quite gotten used to the flash on the camera. as you might have noticed she is wide-eyed in almost all of her pictures. but still the cutie. she sure would make a good little elf with those ears of hers. davis, however, is the mischievous elf. following after you to unwrap the corner of a nicely wrapped present or to take down ornaments placed thoughtfully on a limb. or perhaps like in the picture below, it is to smear a little taste off the newly built gingerbread house. but everyone is happy, healthy and in good Christmas spirits....well most the time....

an apple a day

doesn't keep davis away. here they are in between takes for the christmas card picture. the final shots are on the way to your mailboxes, so you will have to wait to see the chosen picture!

we tried to take davis to see santa clause this year. he didn't quite grasp the idea that this was the man who makes all christmas lists and wishes come true. in fact, the moment zach put him on santa's lap, davis was squealing to get off! allison was a trooper. i think she saw santa's lap as another nice warm place to lounge.

davis is quite fond of christmas trees, christmas parades and rolls of wrapping paper. he likes to take all ornaments off the tree and drop them on the ground. loves the sirens and lights of police cars as the lead the parade down the street. and thinks that wrapping paper is meant to be used as a bat to hit the walls, dogs, sister and mother. he is definitely programmed to be a boy.

allison couldn't be happier than in your lap or arms. she loves people to be in her face at all times so she can flirt, smile and talk away. our little social butterfly.

this pose is what davis considering "going sit next to your sister"...

a little bit NAUGHTY or nice?
