December Magic

Lunch at the train restaurant with Rose! 

Riding the mechanical pony together. 

Who needs a baby doll to dress when you have Piggy? 

Love extra time with dad while he's off work for the holidays.


Play date at the library.

Looking at the arboretum's lights while riding in my new wagon. 

With my long-time friend, Dan. 
Another Santa visit. This one went much better. 

Playing with a new gift from Grandma Kelley.

Around Here

Playing during a MOPS outing. 

Breakfast with Santa. She was okay with him this time around! 

At the Children's Museum. 

Unseasonably warm December weather means trips to the playground!

MOPS outing to the petting zoo.

First hot coco with her friend, Rose. 

Playing with her musical instruments. 

Finally going down the tunnel slide! 

Always SO busy! 


Claudia was not thrilled with Santa this year. It took a lot of coaxing and tears just to get a quick snapshot. 


We went to the Pacific Northwest for Thanksgiving to see Grandpa, Mimi, and very special aunts, uncles and cousins.

No trip to the Pacific Northwest is complete without a stop to Pike Place Market. 

It was Claudia's first time but since she had been up since 4:15 am and didn't nap, she remained unimpressed. 

The famous gum wall. 

A beautiful view from the market. 

Claudia with her dad on Whidbey Island. 

Feeding her new baby doll. 


Making Elmo cupcakes for an early birthday celebration. 

Ready to always! 

Family photo on Thanksgiving. 

Joe and his dad incognito. 

Getting toes painted for the very first time.

Happy Thanksgiving! 

Getting snuggles from Cousin Devin.

With Uncle Tom, Aunt Cristal and Grandpa

Finally asleep on the way home
