Now that our furnace is fixed and pumping heat again and Steven’s 35th birthday celebration (which consisted of some household chores, playing his new Batman video game and a family dinner out at Misty’s Steakhouse in downtown Lincoln) is officially in the books, I wanted to share a few of the photos from the Romano Family Christmas 2011. Here are a few. I’ll share the rest tomorrow…

Cadence and Odin trying out the Gator that Santa left at Papa Duane and Grandma Jayne's house. Sure glad everyone is watching the road.
Woohoo! Look at them go!
This look is better known as the glassy-eyed Christmas daze. So many presents, so little time.
Watching Kung Fu Panda 2. Thanks Santa!
Sharing a bite of Aunt Lindy's yogurt parfait. Mmm...
Odin and his tractor.
Cheese!
Odin and Cadence
This year, Steven and I gave each other a new home for Christmas. Thanks for the ornament Pawpoo Shawn, Granny Wendy, Whitney and Collin!!!
Cadence's first official Christmas tree, courtesy of her Godmother Tammy, Scott, and Katie!
Opening presents is serious business when you wake up prematurely from a nap.
As you can see, Electra takes her job as supervisor very seriously.
Oooh, what's this?
Really? Enough with the camera already.
Now we're getting into it. Tear into it girl!
The unwrapping isn't done until every last scrap of paper and tape have been removed.
Making sure she reads the instruction manual. Like father, like daughter.
"Noooo Daddy! I want to hold him!"
If you can resist baby feet, you are not human.
Meticulous.
Of course, Steven can't wait for Cadence to finish before he starts cleaning up behind her, so Cadence gives her Daddy a break and starts handing him the paper instead of just throwing it on the floor. That's Daddy's girl!
Here you go, Daddy.
Checking out the new dishes for her kitchen.
I see tea parties in our future.
Yea for blocks!
Ooooh! Look at the fishies!
The Force is strong with this one.
Showing off her stacking skills.
Making faces so Momma will stop taking pictures already.
Kissing the fishies good night before we go to bed.
