Merry Christmas!

Hope your Christmas is wonderful and filled with love! We'll share ours in the New Year!

Take a Picture

Bethany gathered up all her hangers and said, "Mommy, take a picture!" Apparently, it's really cool, so I thought I'd pass it along.

Bath Time

Rebekah gets her baths with Bethany now. She's finally big enough to sit up on her own without me worrying about her falling! I figure if she can pull herself up to standing, she can sit!

Snow Day!

Bethany LOVED playing in the snow today! She didn't mind being cold at all. She made snow angels and filled up her bucket with snow. She even drove the boat through the snow storm! We will be doing lots more playing in the snow this year! Check out Jonas' blog for a video of Bethany making a snow angel!

Crawling Champ

Rebekah is getting around the apartment pretty quickly these days!

Christmas in Clarence...

... was a bust. It's a good thing the kids are 2 and had no idea how not worth it it was! They enjoyed the carousel, the car ride, and the bounce house! The gift shop had this crazy singing Santa, which for some reason didn't bother Bethany in the least. Believe it or not, that was probably the highlight of the trip! We walked through the light show before it got dark, and decided it wasn't worth seeing at night - so we went home and made more cookies instead! Fun!

Cookie Craziness

Decorating cookies was tons of fun today. Bethany helped with everything, and was very proud of herself. If it were up to her, I think all cookies would be cut-out cookies. We're going to be enjoying eating these this next week!

Santa's Coming to Town

Santa came over to visit the other day. Rebekah loved him, and sat with him the whole time. Bethany, on the other hand, did not want to go anywhere near him. This is the only picture we got of her with him.

Summer in the Winter

This gorgeous dress makes me wish that it was warmer outside! Thankfully, it's nice and warm here in our apartment!

Another Christmas Tree

Bethany and Rebekah got to decorate another Christmas tree today! Bethany helped Grandma sort out all the ornaments, then put them all on her favorite branch. Rebekah tried to eat a few of the ornaments, then settled for trying to attack the tree. They both loved it!

Joey Time

The girls got to visit with Cousin Joey for a bit today. Rebekah really took a shine to him! After hanging out for a bit, Joey fell asleep giving her a bottle.
We also got a cousin picture! Too bad Max lives in Chicago... but 4 out of 5 isn't bad!

Newest Hideout

I went to see what Bethany and Jonas were up to... and discovered them hiding in my closet. They can be so strange!

Sitting Up

Rebekah can get from a prone position up to sitting no problem! It won't be long until she's cruising - she already tries to pull herself up on stuff!
