More Christmas Pictures

Because Christmas is my favorite time of year and I get so bummed when it's over, I like to way over-do everything (i.e. doing about 27 Christmas photoshoots) so that way I am almost all Christmas'ed out by the time Christmas comes and goes. Almost. 

Goooo Gators!

We Starstroms have some team spirit!!  Go Gators (even though they lost to one of their biggest rivals)!!  I am not a fair-weathered fan!!  And Go Magic!!  Ok, enough exclamation points!!!

He's ALMOST Walking!

Here is Drew showing off his new SKILLS, clapping and standing and almost walking, AND clapping while standing and ALMOST walking!!!  That takes some coordination!!!  He is SO proud of himself, and so am I.

The Boys and Santa

Evan and Drew 2010

Evan 2009

Evan 2008
 Today we went and saw Santa at the Millenia Mall.  Evan for the first time ever, really loved sitting on Santa's lap.  He told him what he wanted for Christmas, and was not shy in the least.  Drew, my sweetheart who hasn't met a soul he doesn't like, who will go to any stranger on the street, who very rarely fusses when given any sort of attention, HATED Santa!  We got one semi-decent non-crying picture of Drew, so I bought it!  I wasn't waiting in line for an hour to NOT buy a single photo!  Plus it's fun to compare it to years past, especially since it's always the same Santa.  Last year Drew was 2 months old at the time, but still a tiny thing at like 6 or 7 lbs, so I opted not have his picture taken.  Let's hope next year I have two happy boys, but I am not holding my breath!

Xmas Video

We have so much to be thankful for this year.  The holidays always make me so nostalgic.  Here is a video I created from pictures of this past year.  Each year continues to get better and better.  I hope you enjoy it!  Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas!

P.S. Anyone who knows how to load multiple songs when making a video on Picasa, help a sister out.  I hate that the music runs out before the pictures!

Happy Birthday Baby Kathryn!

On Wednesday we attended Drew's buddy, Kathryn's, Birthday party.  She turned 1!!!  That means my little Drew is 14 months, because she was born 2 months to the day, after Drew.  Crazy to see these little babies grow up so fast.  Her party was super fun.  It was at Gymboree, and the kids enjoyed playing with instruments, climbing, bouncing, balancing, playing with a parachute, singing songs, as well as eating delicious pizza and cake!  Drew may not be able to walk, but that boy can climb and tumble!!  He crawled up each slide at least half a dozen times and then slid down them head first!!!  I had Meema there to help me, thank goodness, because Drew is fast!  And Evan continues to amaze me with his big brother skills.  He is innately so protective of Drew.  They sat on this tube and sang "The Wheels on the Bus" and bounced up and down, and Evan wrapped his arms so tight around Drew's waist to protect him.  It was ADORABLE!

Cutest Christmas Lollipops Ever!

I found the cutest Christmas lollipops ever the other day.  So another Christmas photoshoot was most definitely in order.
