Miranda (wearing Princess Rose from the 2009 Fall/Winter Collection) is too excited for her date with Daddy.

I’ve been waiting to see Disney’s The Princess and the Frog with Miranda. I mean… WAITING with ANTICIPATION!!! So when the movie came out, guess who decided to take her instead? Her Daddy!

“It’s not fair. I want to take her!!!!” (Of course, I have to whine.)

“You just took her to see A Christmas Carol.”

“Yeah, but that movie wasn’t really for girls, and it was the only movie playing in the theater that was rated PG.”

“I haven’t been to the movies in a long time and I want to take Miranda.”

“Fine. You go. But I’m warning you. It’s a girl movie.”

After my little tantrum, I’ve accepted that it was okay for them to go. I’ll just catch it on Netflix. It will be a nice treat for Miranda, AND it’s true… Daddy and Daughter haven’t done anything together (just the two of them) in a while. Besides, I needed to go Christmas shopping for Miranda anyway.

“Miranda, promise me that you won’t tell me the ending, okay?”

“Okay, Mommy. But, why can’t you take me to see it again?”

“Because the next time you’ll want to go the movies, you’ll probably want to see a different movie, like Alvin and the Chipmunks.”

THE SQUEAKQUEL!!!! All the single ladies… all the single ladies…”

When they came home, Miranda was so happy and excited. “Mommy, Mommy! Guess what?”

“Remember… Don’t tell me the ending.”

“I’m not. I just want to tell you my favorite part!!!”

“Okay. What’s your favorite part?”

“Daddy fell asleep!”

“WHAT?!” glaring at Daddy. “I told you it was a chic-flick.”

“It was only for a short while during the boring part.”

No, I did NOT say that!

No, I did NOT say that!

My friend, Stephanie’s daughter came home from school and told her mother that some kids at school say that Santa is really your parents putting presents under the tree after you go to sleep. Her reply to her friends are,

I don’t think so because my Dad goes to bed early, AND Santa brings me stuff my mom would NEVER get me, like a Bratz doll that you can put make-up on.”

Paulo and Miranda in le•top's 2009 Deck The Halls Collection

It’s that time of year to visit Jolly Ol’ St. Nick and hopefully get a great snapshot of your children as they whisper to him what they want for Christmas. This year, Miranda asked for books. Books? Yes, she seriously asked for books. She’s so practical—even Santa Claus was in shock! (Last year she asked for clothes, and she most certainly received tons of beautiful clothes from a special Santa.) As for Paulo, this is his first Christmas and first photo with Santa. I was hoping to see some tears or a hint of fear in his eyes, but he sat comfortably on Santa’s lap without a care in the world. If he could talk and tell Santa what he wants for Christmas, he would probably ask for a shoe to chew on or an electrical outlet he can poke at because Mommy won’t let him near these things.

Mr. Twee!

It’s always a sad time for me and sweetie when we have to take down the ornaments and lights and say good-bye to our wonderfully fragrant and handsome Christmas tree. We’re hoping to keep “Mr. Twee” up for another week or so. What about you?

Ho! Ho! Ho! Never having been taken to see Santa when I was a child (at least…not to my recollection anyway), this photo seems hilariously cute (or should it be ‘cutely hilarious’?)! And, having watched 24 hours of A Christmas Story over the holidays, I know (in the movies anyway) that kids seem to freeze (or worse) in the presence of Santa. But I wonder…who is more terrified? Santa or the kids?!? If you have similar photos to share (old or new), we’d love to see them and post them on le•top blog! Click here to upload your photos.

It’s a romantic full moon, when Pedro said, “Hey, mamacita, let’s do Weeweechu.”

Oh no, not now, let’s look at the moon!” said Rosita.

Oh, c’mon baby, let’s you and I do Weeweechu. I love you and it’s the perfect time,” Pedro begged.

“But I wanna just hold your hand and watch the moon.” replied Rosita.

Please, corazoncito, just once, do Weeweechu with me.”

Rosita looked at Pedro and said, “OK, one time, we’ll do Weeweechu.”

Pedro grabbed his guitar and they both sang…..

“Weeweec hu a Merry Christmas, Weeweechu a Merry Christmas, Weeweechu a Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year.”

This past Friday was our annual employee potluck at Le Top – a tradition that manages to ring up more calories in a single day than ANYONE needs to consume (everyone brings in a favorite dish), but also rings up a lot of laughter! – we “work” in the morning (yeah, right…) and then gather for the feast.

Let the feast commence!

Let the feast commence!

You hear comments like, “I hope Christopher brought in the salmon” (he did!) and “Yeah! Linda made her divine divinity!” We have a very diverse staff (One day, I counted the languages spoken here – I think it was around 10?!?), so it is really fun (and sometimes quite interesting) to try everyone’s ‘regional’ cuisine. Our international menu included good ole’ American (mac n’ cheese), Chinese (roast duck and noodles), Mexican and South American (pass the hot sauce!) and German (great potato salad!). (more…)
