God bless sunshine!

Just so everyone knows.....this is our garage, not our house.
Although the snowfall the year has beautifully coated sidewalks and rooftops, the relentlessly cold temperatures have put me in a winter depression. The Lord above heard the sincerity in the request that my nose not fall off on my walk to work. He went big time this weekend. It was 67 degrees yesterday. WOO HOO! We spent some much needed time under that big beautiful ball of vitamin D. We took Had to the zoo and let her run loose for a few hours. Have I expressed how nice it was to be outside.
The ducks are worth mentioning because they are one of the few animals Hadley can recognize and tell you the correct sound they make. Sometimes, though, the ducks ROAR! like a tiger. :)
The Hippos here remind me of myself and Matt since the beginning of January. Sitting around not doing a thing worth mentioning. Just read, eat, and watch tv. Eating is really the only reason to leave the couch when it's so dang cold.
The End! Thank you, dear sunny Saturday. I just don't think I would have made it to February without you.

Christmas 2010

Pictures with santa only happened if mom and dad sat with Hadley and she still held on to us for dear life! Maybe next year. Below is one of the greatest gifts Had got this year. It's a pop up tree house big enough for her to run around in.

Did I say treehouse? I meant teepee.

The picture is a little dark. I wish it wasn't because the Christmas tutu and tights were a sight to see. Hadley's Christmas eve outfit was an adorable green, red, and white tutu with matching tights and a t-shirt with a christmas tree. Needless to say, it was par for the course for her party outfits.  As the night went on, we lost the tutu and gained purple princess heels. I'm willing to bet Had would have slept in the heels if given the opportunity.

Ahh, the tricycle. Another Christmas favorite. Poor Kinleigh almost got a left hook to the eye for trying to take her turn.

Toys! Toys! Wrapping paper and more toys!

Not really sure what's going on here. I just had to post a picture of the elf shoes. The things we do to our poor kids.
All in all, we had a fabulous Christmas! We were lucky enough to be able to see both sides of the fam on Christmas day. A little exhausting but none the less delightful! Hope everyone had a merry Christmas and  happy new year!
