Christmas Pictures!

By now all of our cards have been mailed and should be arriving in your mailboxes shortly. (And if not, then apparently we need to add you to our address book!) :) After Thanksgiving Deb took family pictures for us, then took a few of Sophia trying her first candy cane. Sophia loved it and was not happy when we took it away!

Merry Christmas!

Christmas Time!

The Saturday after Thanksgiving we put up our Christmas tree while Sophia took her nap. (Yes, the tree is fake -- sad but true. ) When she awoke we plopped her in front of the tree and she stared, unsure what to think.

But that didn't last long. We put a few "safe" ornaments at the bottom for her to investigate -- and she quickly gave them a thorough inspection.

I think she approved.

The snowman was a hit too.

Since that morning, our coffee table has served as a barrier to the tree.
Every once in awhile she'll stop and stare at the tree -- probably wondering what it's doing in our house -- and then continue on her merry way.
Family Christmas pictures coming soon!

Thanksgiving Fun!

The last few days were full of family, friends, and lots of food! :) Sophia enjoyed meeting a few relatives for the first time.

She also learned to close her eyes when any dogs headed her way as a good old-fashioned slobbery kiss was sure to follow.
