It's Christmas

Merry Christmas!

Bethany and I went to the doctor last week and got to hear the baby's heartbeat! A perfect 161 beats per minute. The visit made me really excited for May!


Believe it or not, I'm going to finish the putting up the tree posts in one sitting. Bethany was the "light master" in our tree decorating. She was awesome at untangling them, and then holding them up to Daddy to put around the tree. The ornaments didn't go quite as well, mainly because I was paranoid and didn't want her breaking any!

Assembling the Tree

I know there's a lot to be said for a real tree, but I wouldn't have had one this year for $1,000,000. Bethany loved helping us get the branches ready, and then handing them to me to put together. She is getting to be such a good helper.
Look how proud she is of her work!

While spending Thanksgiving in the Smokies, we managed to do some sightseeing. Aren't Bethany's boots the cutest? And with that, I am done posting about Thanksgiving and can move on to Christmas festivities. Yay!

Bethany is a pro at unwrapping presents. And after unwrapping, she takes the time to inspect the gift and have some fun with it. What fun this Christmas season is going to be!

The Browns

We traveled to Tennessee for our Thanksgiving holiday to see the entire Brown family. Bethany is still very attached to her cousin, Maddee! Maddee found her a bead necklace on our first day there, and Bethany had it around her neck the rest of the weekend. I think it was her favorite gift of the week!Bethany caught up with the rest of the family, too, including some Yahtzee time with Great Grandma, and her cousins, Evann and Ailey! She is so into dice. We were thankful for Bethany's good health this visit, and that she got to actually get within 10 feet of Ailey. They make quite a pair. Bethany's cousin, Sarah, got in some good reading time with her... and for some reason didn't make it on any of my pictures.

I realized today what a slacker I've been on this blog! So here's the beginning of slowly bringing you up to speed. A few weeks ago, Bethany got to meet Santa Claus (and Rudolph of course!) She was very into pointing to him. I guess she's not used to seeing grown men walking around in bright red pajamas.
