Double trouble

Enjoying a cold frosty one.


Eva comforts Sam as he faces his fear of Santa.

Reading a few books about baby Jesus.
We bought the kids an early Christmas present - the Little People manger and drummer boy sets. They love to play with them, and they're great visual aids when we read.

Look who's walking!
She's been practicing for several weeks. And in the past few days, she seems to have mastered it.

Holiday photos

I'm about 2 holidays behind. At the rate I'm going, look for Christmas photos in February!

We are fortunate to have great neighbors all around us. This year we went trick-or-treating with the family next door. They have a little guy named Noah who's just a few months younger than Sam. Noah dressed up as a fireman, Sam was a train engineer.

What a team.

Noah, me, Princess Eva and Sam

Eva, Noah and Sam love riding in the wagon. This is Noah's wagon, but we're talking to Santa about delivering a wagon of our own.

A great shot of Sam smiling. As a baby, he loved to smile for the camera. Now we have to catch him in the moment. Many thanks to our neighbor Jamie (Noah's mom) for catching this one.

This sums up fall for me. A relaxing afternoon outdoors, playing in the leaves.
