little girl wishes

So you know what Fallon is wishing for?

No, what?

To be a big sister.

Hmmm…

She even has a plan.

A plan?

Yes. I could have twins.

TWINS?!

Yes, twins. That way there will be a baby for Hazel and a baby for Fallon.

So then they wouldn’t have to fight.

Yup!

Seems legit.

Calm down boys and girls!!! There is no coming attraction baby or babies arriving anytime soon to join this circus act. But I did warn Hollie about little girl’s wishes and their prayers…powerful stuff they are.

 

even wider

Since she was just a beautiful baby, I have always adored Hazel’s bright and happy gap-toothed smile.

Because her gap toothed smile is perfect.

But today, that gap just a little bit bigger.

Yes, cue all of the All I want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth singing. I know we did. I also spent the evening asking her to say Hazel Scarborough, Merry Christmas, silly and pretty much almost every S word I could think of because the whistling through the gap is all the awesome.

 

holiday mad adorableness

So that impossibly gorgeous married couple I know so well because the wife is my darling daughter #1 shared a picture of themselves from a holiday party this weekend.

Naturally I grabbed a copy of it for myself; after I shouted, “Stop being so adorable!” Because, really, they are just too damn adorable. I wish I was that adorable! This shot really would be a perfect holiday card except for the fact that their even more perfectly adorable children aren’t in the picture.

Of course, that will not do because they are my perfectly adorable grand babies and they absolutely must be featured in their holiday cards.

Hollie and Ben, naturally, agree and they asked me to help them get the perfect holiday card photo.

You can’t imagine the fun.

Then again…

Meanwhile, the much-coveted Scarborough Family Circus Holiday cards are here and ready to send out.

Let me know if you want one.

and completed

After midnight, while my guys were slumbering and snoring in our hotel room, I shared a little bit of the Thanksgiving Day with Hollie, who is spending the holiday with her little family at Disneyland. For us both, our very first visit to Disneyland was 23 years ago this time of year so I could imagine just how magical it would be for Hazel and Fallon…especially for Fallon being her very first visit. As expected, Hollie reported that Thanksgiving Day at Disneyland was indeed perfect…except for the part where they lost Fallon’s autograph book. Then she sent me this little bit of sweet awesome.

Okay everybody,

1, 2, 3…

AWWWWWW!!!!!

That pretty much completed my Thanksgiving.

They are just as cute when they are awake.

They get it from their parents.

real life and sharing

“Life doesn’t get more real than having a newborn.” ~ Eric Church

Youngest grandchild status is a wonderful thing…until it seems that you are no longer the youngest grandchild. At least it appears to be so looking at Fallon’s reaction to her auntie’s beautiful first born baby in the arms of her Papa.

Oh Fallon!

Soon enough she will realize that her status as very much adored grand child is absolutely secure. Then shall come the perks of having someone younger than you to play with, to look up to you and for you to maybe boss around…kind of like your life with Hazel. There’s also the consolation of the fact that your youngest grand child status is secure under The Big Top…at least for now.

Congratulations and welcome to the world, beautiful Baby E.
