Life happens, you take as many pictures as you can, and then, well, at least if you’re me, you go through the bulk to pick out a few that illustrate best what your family’s been up to lately.

Our friends Steve and Amy visited us for Thanksgiving and helped us pick out a tree about 10 or 15 miles from our house. It’s some sort of pine tree. Being from “up North” we’ve always used spruce, so this was a change for us. What a pleasure it was to decorate – no scrapes or cuts this year from trying to wrap the lights around the tree. The pine needles are so soft and with the pine cones we were provided some natural ornaments.

(By the way, Steve and Amy, Sophia includes you in her ‘People I love’ list every day – It’s pretty darn cute.)

I finally had the chance to dress the girls up in the matching outfits our friends Karen and Don sent us. It’s what they wore to the Community Dinner and Christmas program. As you can see, they look adorable in them.

I think Sophia was the only toddler who actually sang in the program. Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer was heard in our house non-stop for the next few days.

And Sophia even sat on Santa’s lap for the first time ever this year. Her request: candy. We’re glad to have a daughter who’s so easy to please. 🙂

Lots more pictures sit in our camera. I’m hoping that I’ll get some of them posted in the next few days.

Her papa can’t believe he’s got 2 absolutely beautiful daughters to protect. He sure does have his work cut out for him.

(p.s. Recognize the blanket, Staci?)
