Santa...I'm not quite a fan just yet!



Sorry for the poor quality of the images here...they are quick scans of poorly printed pics to begin with...but we couldn't wait to share these classic 'first time' Santa shots with you. Sydney and Georgia visited the big jolly guy today and these turned out just how I imagined the probably would! Nothing beats the holiday season like paying money to have your kids sit on some strangers lap! PRICELESS!!!

19 Months


The Month has gone by fast as usual...Syd is quite the little hoot these days as you can see by the pic I chose to post. She will probably be a dress-up queen here sooner or later...or just have a very interesting way of wanting to dress herself! She is starting to talk more and more...most of the words you might not understand at first...but that is what parental interpreters are for...Matt and I would be happy to help make the words mesh with your brain cells the next time you have a chance to chat with her! The 'uhs', 'oohs' and 'ahhs' grunts and squeaks make sense...but the nice thing is that she is starting to try to say so many things. Which also means the repeating stage is closer than we really want! However that is also the fun part...hearing this little squeaky voice spit out something you thought she might not get on her first try!

Christmas is right around the corner and we can't wait to see how she does opening gifts. Last year she kind of figured it out, but now that she knows there is something under the paper or inside the bag...it will be a hoot to see her react...the problem will be keeping her from taking everyone else's since she is in quite the possessive stage.

She is on the go, go, go all day long...loves listening and dancing to silly songs, helping Mom & Dad around the house, loves the outdoors when it isn't frigid out and has an addiction for Sesame Street and pretty much any other show on PBS. Another month down...and many more months of silliness, tantrums, laughing, bumps & bruises, and new discoveries to come!

Michelle's Graduation

Friday night Wendy, Kelly & I drove to Manhattan to help celebrate Michelle's Graduation from the Master's program at K-State! Congrats again girly! We are all so proud of you!

Lodge at Big Cedar







Matt surprised me last week with a quick get away to the Big Cedar Lodge that sits on Table Rock Lake just outside of Branson, Missouri to celebrate our 10 Year Anniversary of being together and the upcoming Christmas Holiday! We had a great time! I loved this place and can't wait to go back. We rented a little cabin...and although it was cold, it was great to get away and spend some time together!
