Daddy's little helpers

"campin', campin' outside"

One of Birdie's favorite shows is "Bubble Guppies." We had been talking about camping in the backyard for a while, and they had a camping episode, so we thought we'd give it a try. We sang the songs from the show, went on a special trip to the grocery store for supplies, borrowed a fire pit from our neighbors, got Big Easy to sleep, and gave it a go. In typical Birdie fashion (when we think we've come up with the coolest, most fun idea ever), she wasn't very impressed. Mom and Dad had lots of fun, though!

Here's Daddy's foil pack. I can't even explain how excited he was about this thing.

Little stinker. She played in the tent and sleeping bags for a while and then asked to go to her bed. Remind me to never take her to Disney World.

Princess Birdie

Sweet little princess. This flower also has magical powers. She turns me into a singing cow at least once a day.

let's go to the mall...today

When Grandma used to come to visit, Birdie would ask her, "Can we have a tea party?" about 2 seconds after she stepped in the door. Now, it's "Merry-go-round!"

crawling along

We really had a wonderful gift this year...Winston officially started crawling on Christmas day! It was so exciting, and he's so happy to be able to move around as he likes. He's been cruising for a while, and we think he'll be walking well before his first birthday.

Oh, the princess. A new princess dress. New princess shoes. She's pretty happy.

the first Christmas

Well, it wasn't the first Christmas, but it was #1 of 2 we had this year. Two sets of family visits equals double the fun for kiddos! And, it was Winston's first Christmas. I think you can tell everyone had a great time. We even managed to get a few family pictures of all four of us--a Christmas miracle!
