Wesley's New Haircut

It was time for Wesley's hair to be cut. We had cut her bangs before but she'd never had a proper hair cut...


She's learned to make a big, cheesy smile when the camera comes out.

Merry Christmas 2010!

Each year the girls make an ornament to put on their tree. This is what they looked like at the end of the activity....

Making (or tasting) cookies for Santa.

On Christmas Eve we all get to open one gift - a set of new pajamas.

And to think - there almost were no cookies for Santa. The power went out in our area for a few hours and we weren't sure we'd have enough time. Fortunately, it came back on in time to fire up the oven and make the snacks.
The girls and some gifts on Christmas morning.

Sweet November

November was a beautiful month in Austin, Texas. The girls played outside every day because the weather was perfect. After we set up our fall yard decor, Quinn would ask me to take her picture every day with the pumpkins. I've shared just three of a million that we took.

We wrapped up November by celebrating Thanksgiving with most of our family and extended family - almost 20 people!
