Before we head of to Hutchinson for Christmas #4 (in two days), I wanted to share a couple pictures from yesterdays fun.
After a great breakfast at the Dunphy's, it was off to the farm for Christmas with the Anderson's. I heard there were 30 or so people there, so you can imagine it was a little crazy... Sylvia was a champ with all the new faces. She was full of giggles.
She managed to get a little nap on the drive home from Northfield and then up to Brooklyn Park. It was good she go some rest... check out that pile of presents!
Taking in my 1st Christmas
That was pretty much our entire day... I may try to get a video up before we take off today.

Today at daycare was the annual holiday program. Sylvia was lucky enough to win the lead of Rudolph! Here she is leading the sleigh.
Who can't smile when they see this little angel.
Not quite sure, but it looks like Mrs. Claus may have ate the last reindeer.

This is what happens when you show Jamie how to use the camcorder and Daddy gets home from work late...
She also enjoyed some fun times with her new stuffed animal from Pat and Mary K.
Have a great evening... I am enjoying mine at home, since my trip was postponed. It is nice to be home now, but I am nervous about when I will have to travel next with the holidays quickly approaching.

Just wanted to show off another cute picture of Shaylan. She is about 8 months older than Sylvie and I think they have the same eyes. Shaylan and Sylvie are cousins and soon they will be the best of friends. At this point Shaylan is very curious about Sylvie and doesn't like it when "her" grandma holds another baby. Good thing Sylvie is still to small to understand jealousy. It will be interesting when they are both a little older.

Just a couple cute pictures of Shaylan enjoying her first cake. She started out like a little lady and then the sugar kicked in and she really got into it.

I know that is a little cheesy, but I could get into a lot more cheesy stuff like being thankful for her little toes that wiggle out of her socks her her big eyes that are full of giggles and love, but I will stop there. This is the kinda stuff you think about in the middle of the night while nursing. Then I realized that my mom probably had these thoughts about me too.
So here are some other things I am thankful for:
ice cream--and lots of it
a good book
Sylvia is thankful for:
her fingers-they provide hours of entertainment
super soft bamboo diapers
the blue frog on her exersaucer
Adam is thankful for (in no particular order):
2 good jobs
Sylvia's great daycare
our wonderful friends and family
Jameson Irish Whiskey
Please leave us comments letting us know what you are thankful for!

Hi Grandma, Just wanted to say Happy Birthday!

No pictures of Sylvie, she spent the party being crabby in the other room. I guess she doesn't like it when the attention isn't all on her:)

Sylvia was 'talking' with Jamie this weekend. I found their conversation to be very exciting!
Not much is new with us, besides the obvious... Looking forward to seeing the families for Thanksgiving. Hopefully some new pictures will be posted soon as well.

With the addition of Sylvia to our family, we have had to make many new purchases... A crib, a swing, baby clothes, diapers... you know, the staples. One other item that seems to be a staple with parents these days is a camcorder.
Just last week, our new toy arrived. Here is a quick little video of Sylvia talking away this morning while Mom and Dad were trying to sleep in.
Hope you enjoyed, and we will have more soon.

Do these two great grandpas get a 2 for 1 deal? I think Adam might have a new hair style soon.

For Sylvia's first Halloween, Jamie, Missy, and Sylvia spent the night in, while Dad was curling. For our decoration out front, neighbors Ben and Bonnie carved this pumpkin for us.
Also included with the treats was this strange creature, let's call her Sally. Do anyone know what kind of creature Sally is? No matter what she is, I have a pretty good idea that Lucy will love her very much!

Mary (the momma) gave me a Raggedy Anne that she made. She is even cuter in real life!
