warm and cozy

With the snow outside this morning, I felt like you might need a warm and cozy picture.

See... she's SO BIG!

Actually, I love this hat because it makes her face look so chubby (which it is- and I love) but it's kind of like a face girdle- squeezing those cheeks together.

Personally, I think that clothes can't be too girlie at this stage. Hope you're keeping warm today!

successful santa?

Daphne got to see Santa and I think we need to call it a success.
There was a bit of indifference... a bit of disgust... a bit of annoyance...

No smiles... but also no tears. We consider this a major Santa success!

I think that she'll have to grow into her role as Santa's little helper.

Although I'm sad to see Thanksgiving over... ahhhh... it feels nice to have Christmas...
Here's our home "dressed" for the season.
Yes, we are planning on getting a beard to go on the clock... we just don't have it yet.

And, yes, this is the best tree ever, if you were wondering :-)

serious business

Daphne takes her playtime very seriously. Here is our little girl at "work".

Off and running with one of her favorite toys.

Now, she starts checking out the buttons.

And this is where she is for a few minutes...

Then, it's off to the next task on her to-do list.

left-over Halloween candy

I bet you thought it was going to be the bad left over candy...

Instead, here are our left-over pics from Halloween time.

I never loved candy corn as much as I did this season! ENJOY!

OK- I don't want to bore you with too many pictures... I'll stop here...

pumpkin bumpkin

These pictures are getting old, but I wanted to share them anyways. This was Jack's Halloween costume and Bridget let me borrow it to take pictures of our little gal as a pumpkin.

Why is it so fun to dress your child as fruit and baby animals?? I could do this all the time, if I had the costumes at my disposal.

It's amazing to see these pictures because we took these about a month ago and she has already changed SO much!

Niece part 2

With much anticipation... and a wonder how it's time already!

The Shanks welcomed a baby girl last night at 9:10 PM. Obviously, Calum has been trying to practice for having a little girl around.

Now, the two become three...

Even though we definitely tried to get her involved before she was born.

Something tells me that the three girls will have many fun adventures over the years to come!

Welcome sweet girl!! We are so happy to have you here!
