8 month elf

Big snow. Abigail looked around in wonder and that's about it:) Yesterday we ate some snow and took a walk thru it. I did, however, promise Becca I'd make a snow angel and I did!

8 months old and ready to go!!!!

staying close to daddy with all the snow coming down Saturday......

dainty "feets" as we say around here
Merry CHRISTmas to all. I am determined not to get caught up in the hype of the retail season and enjoy our baby girl and each other this first Christmas together. Each time I ask someone "how's it going?" they say they cannot wait till its over next week. Sad. I am vowing not to overeat sweets, over spend- yes we are sticking to the budget (right Bob?) and doing the "Slow parenting" thing. Not too many activities or outings at one time, plently o down time and pure joy in reading or a brisk walk or singing and goofing. xoxo

Ladybugs first Christmas

We are enjoying our first Christmas season as parents and Abigail is certainly enjoying everything!! We have decorated our house and have nice opportunities to enjoy while always remembering the true reason for Christmas...

Below are some pictures taken over the past several days. Abigail continues to grow and experience life and, this weekend, got her big girl car seat. You can tell from one of these pictures that it is pretty comfortable and Mom & Dad are starting to come to grips with the fact that our little one has graduated car seats!!! :)

Saturday saw our first snow of the season and Abigail's first snow!!! Our northern family and friends would laugh at what we called snow but there were white flakes falling from the sky so we counted it as snow :)

We hope that this finds all doing well and ready for a great Christmas season....
