Birthday Party!

We celebrated Dana's 2nd Birthday this past Sunday.
Balloons were the best gift EVER!Big hugs for MorMor.
Yummy cake!
Best buds...
loved playing on the stairs with the balloons.
Foam letters for the bathtub.

Coloring in her new Nemo book with Grandpa. Playtime with Grandpa and Nana and Lucas.
After a nap the balloons are still a big hit!

Hard to believe she's two already. We love you baby girl.

More Christmas

Allen reminds me that *technically* it's still one of the 12 days of Christmas... so it's still okay to have Christmas photos online... which is good, because I haven't had the chance to blog before now!
Our beautiful Christmas tree!
Seriously, it's the biggest one I've ever had in my life! 9 feet!
We figured we had the ceiling for it.
We ran out of lights at the bottom.
Blake enjoys the jumper.
So many great Christmas presents!
Here is Dana opening gifts on Christmas eve at Grandpa and Nana's house.
A baby doll that really 'drinks'!
Christmas Day was spent at MorMor and Grandpa John's house.
The whippets helped open gifts.
Big kisses!
Yummy prime rib!
Everyone opened their Christmas crackers to get their hats!
Dana loved wearing hers!
Blake, too.Uncle Jordan wrestling with the dogs.
Dana really enjoyed dancing with Grandpa John's Christmas present...
a plunger.
And playing in the new storage ottoman...
And the boxes that were shipped to us from Texas...
Yet another way to 'reuse' those terrible packing peanuts.

Xmas in Texas

A few pictures from our Holiday celebration in Daingerfield, Texas. A beautiful, Texas-style, Cedar Christmas tree. The best gift of all?
NEMO!Now she can hold him...While she watches!!
Blake is sitting up pretty well.

Baby's First Christmas.

Blake loved to play the piano!

Dana and Grandpa spent hours outside playing.
Pictures are from Grandma and Grandpa's backyard.
Our little Tom Boy - loving the dirt!
Grandpa Glenn keeping a close eye on her.
Ooops! Too dirty!
It was nice just to play outside again.
Sometimes it just feels like we've been inside for months! ('Cause we have!)

We all had such a wonderful time!

The kids did great on the airplane too.

More Xmas and New Years pics soon!
