Happy Birthday Dad!

Dad turns 33 today! We had a fantastic day. Emma and Tammy made cinnamon rolls for breakfast, then we opened presents. Dad had lots of help from some girls. We had an early lunch and then went to the Cupcakery in the CWE for cupcakes and hot chocolate. YUM! We also discovered that new to the Lou is Lululemon. Mom and Dad were stoked! Already planning a January moonlighting for Lulu shift. After returning home, it was family nap time then mom and dad battled on the Wii--thanks grandma lorlor and baby jim. Ava is getting ready for bed now and Emma is getting ready to have Claire (the babysitter) over for a special night. We're off to try Agave...we're hoping that maybe someone will get Mexican food right in this city.

We Love St. Louis Hills

Our neighborhood puts up a large Christmas tree in the middle of the park. It was a cold night and a little drizzle in the air, but the free kettle corn and Starbucks kept out the cold until Santa arrived. Fred Bird, Ms. Clause and Santa arrived at the park on horse and carriage. Emma told Santa that she wanted a big white dollhouse as they walked by...Mom and Dad think she has been a really good girl this year, so I bet Santa comes through. Many Christmas carols were sung and the lights on the Christmas tree were illuminated. Santa also brought 1 reindeer with him...we think it was probably Comet, because it certainly was not Ruduloph. Ava slept through the experience as she was not feeling well, but she was still able to give us a big smile and show off her teeth.

This is a Shoutout To Shep

Shep, I tried some pigtails too! It was totally awesome. We should get together to shop and get our hair done. xoxo Emma

It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas!

Another Thanksgiving tradition is putting up the Christmas tree and decorations. Always nice to have Uncle Mike around to lend one more set of hands. We went up to Ted Drewes, the famous ice cream shop just up the street, to show the girls all the Christmas trees. Didn't pick out a tree but did manage to have some yummy ice cream...Mom's favorite is the hot fudge sundae...Dad's favorite is Tedads...and Emma's favorite is PINK! Emma and Ava were lots of help with the decorations. Should be a fun Christmas around the McGreevy household.

Happy Thanksgiving

Uncle Mike, Emma & Ava
Indi & Ava
Josh, Miriam & Lena
Happy Thanksgiving! Uncle Mike flew in on Thanksgiving morning to visit Emma & Ava. We had just enough time to get home unpack and start cooking. Last year, we started a tradition that Mike comes for Thanksgiving and the ER fellows and their families get together. Josh and Miriam were the hosts this year and we were able to lure Indi into joining as well. The food was fantastic and the kids were well behaved...can't ask for more than that.
