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!

coy daphne

When I was little, I use to lay my head to the side and my family called me, "Coy Kelly."

Now our little girl is doing the same thing, and it is ADORABLE! Here is the footage...

I just want to kiss the screen, she's so cute!

halloween fun

I hope that you had as fun of a Halloween as we did. We were able to spend it with the cousins and, oh my gosh, I forgot how fun trick or treating is!

Spending it with the cousins was awesome, even if not that easy to document!
Here are the best photo's of our daphne duck!
