Well girls?

I only took 3 pictures.


Wanna know why?

Because I wanted to be THERE with you rather than behind the camera.  Daddy and I loved seeing your faces this morning when you walked downstairs to the tree.  Seeing you absolutely WRECK the living room with paper and plastic was delightful.  No. Really.  It was.  You spotted presents left by Santa and opened presents from each other and Daddy and I.  Then, we ate blueberry breakfast cake (CAKE!), biscuits and gravy (well, dad and I did), eggs, fruit, etc.

Some of your favorites this year:

Emily:  ‘things I can wear’ you said.  Also, the Eno and Vera Bradley backpack.

Allison:  the science kit, zipline, trampoline

Caroline:  trampoline, horse jumps, Pusheen animals, Calico Critters

Also, tomorrow we will get one more super special gift and that’s a new baby sister!

You were really into these pictures.  Can you tell?

The other morning you decided to pilfer through my things and came out with my shirt on.  Also, there was my head band and glasses on your face.  The glasses didn’t last long because my perscription is so strong, but you did allow me to take a couple of snaps of you before you tossed them aside.  Then, you spent the next 4500 hours arranging the stuffed animals and pillows on your bed.

I asked you to tell me your top ten favorite things and here’s what you came up with.  :)

  •  family
  • friends
  • unicorns
  • Christmas
  • Max
  • Lulu
  • macaroni
  • Chick-fil-A
  • The Cloister
  • Pusheen the Cat

Dear Baby #4,

I know you will be an amazing little sis. I am looking forward to being able to play with you. I wonder what after school activity you will do. Will you be athletic, instrumental, or have epic scientific smarts?! Which ever one I’ll be fine with, but I difinetly know that you will become extremely famous no matter what. NO DOUBT!

I know that you will be best buds with Mommy the Magnificent and Daddy the Dinamite. Thankfully Daddy is not real dinamite (just so you know).

BTW I am Allison. You can call me Al or Allie. I prefer Allie though. I play soccer at rush. It is my favorite sport in the history of the world.

Once again, I think that you will be a great little sister. I love you so much.

Your older older sis,

Allie Oso  (allie bear)

Pinterest and peer pressure.  Those two guys get me every.single.time.

How hard can it be?

sees cute cookie idea on Pinterest…spends a gob of dough on supplies (see what I just did there?) prepares counter for awesome baking adventure…blah blah blah.  

Yep.  So it was me with the bright idea of baking Christmas cookies.

Preparing the dough.

Chilling the dough.

Rolling out the dough.

Cutting out the shapes.

Okay so the dough was actually Pillsbury and comes in a handy dandy rolled up tube.


Anyway, let’s just say we tried, but it took us a good 25 minutes to figure out the best way to do this Baking Cookies Thing.  I won’t tell you how it all went down just in case you are reading this 20 years down the road and are some kind of Food Network Star.  But basically, most of the cookies turned out gross-ish, but the decorations were cute.  Although?  I didn’t photograph that part and slap it up on Pinterest for inspiration.  Let’s just say that.

You three had fun though!  Plus, you helped me clean up as we went along which is always appreciated and you (usually) never have to be asked.
