Christmas with Ms. Ginger and Mr. Ken

Mr. Ken and Ms. Ginger came over today to have an early Christmas with the girls.  We are so lucky to have them in our lives, they really are like family.  Ms. Ginger made the girls leg warmers.

The girls loved the tinsel, it was all over the house and the more that came out the harder they laughed.  We should just get them bags of tinsel for Christmas!

It's beginning to look a lot like christmas

Last Christmas the girls sat nicely in front of the tree, not quite realizing what was going on. This year I was a little concerned to see how they would react to the tree and what they would do.  I contemplated putting all the ornaments on the top of the tree so there would not be any temptations.  I did keep most of them off the bottom.  It was just magical to see the girls first reaction to the tree.  I love that Mike and I get to be kids in our own right through the girls.

the girls 1st christmas sitting nicely in front of the tree.

I didn't do it, Emma did.

Santa 2010 verses Santa 2009

What a difference a year makes.

Maybe next year will be better :-)

Baby it's cold outside

So winter has hit us in Tallahassee.  I don' think that there is anything more adorable than a bundled up toddler.  The girls got winter jackets last year, but they finally fit.  Hopefully, it won't stay too cold here, but just in case we have the cutest winter wardrobe.

Lily's not so sure about her hat.

Thanksgiving 2010

We stayed in town for Thanksgiving and went over to Grandma and Grandpa's house.  Aunt Judy, Aunt Nita and Aunt Trace' were there as well.  A had a friend make a cute Thanksgiving dress for the girls.  They were a little long, but we can use them next year :-)  It was a nice day and I can only imagine how much fun each holiday and family gathering will be.

Front Yard

We spent a good hour today playing in the front yard.  The weather had turned a bit warmer, so it was pants and short sleeve shirts.  It was so nice and peaceful and I look forward to more days like this.



Em's not so sure about this whole grass thing

Halloween 2010

So when you are one and you don't eat candy what do you do for Halloween???  You get dressed up as ladybugs and you go to...Costco.  Since Halloween was on a Sunday this year, we figured why not dress them up and go.  I can say they were the hit of Costco!

2010 Pumpkin Patch

We took the girls to the pumpkin patch again this year.  It is exactly two weeks after they turned 1.  We went last year when they were two weeks old so it seemed fitting.  Grandma and Grandpa went with us this year.  It was so fun to see the girls reaction to the pumpkins and actually begin to understand what was going on.  We saw one of the girls daycare friends there so that was nice.
