Happy New Year

Merry Christmas and Happy Snow Days!

Yes its been awhile, lots of reasons for that but no excuses here, will just give you some pictures to re-live our last month!  We are looking forward to lots of changes and fun in 2010–hope you are too!

Watching the first snow in December–yes I said 1st snow!

“making” a snow man–poor guy didn’t last long but we had fun trying!

The dogs had fun, mostly Atlas–Mickey wasn’t so sure at first, but he’s learned!

The snow also gave us a chance to get this year’s Christmas card picture taken…

The next day we ventured out to get our Christmas Tree from a local farm, it was sunny, we had big ideas…..Sophia on the other hand was wonderful, for about 10 minutes then LOST her little mind in exhaustion.  No Norman Rockwell moments for us but we did manage to sneak in a few pictures.

The sun was shining, the snow melted, December and Holiday happenings happened

We made cookies, we put up the tree–and my infamous totally cheesy island tree, we (well Soph) “dressed for Santa

….then it came–“the big one”, the “blizzard”  We got a LOT of snow!  Keith was out of town but with the help of some great neighbors we got plowed out, and in the meantime just as Sophia would say “swam around like snow mermaids”.

Dad made it home in time for Christmas and so did Santa–and Sophia must have been a good girl because not only did she get the wished for pink telescope and jump-rope but a new dollhouse as well!
