Playing Catch Up

I have been pretty disconnected from the blog lately. I have been pretty distractable lately, so it's hard to pin me down to write too much. Sophia has been downright hilarious lately. She's also been full of vim and vinegar and huge amounts of 3-year-old energy and chatter. It takes some getting used to, and I'm still adjusting...

We've been busy with celebrating and preparing for Christmas. Now I'm excited for the big day to get here.

We made another batch of Christmas cookies. Sophia has been really trying to "help" with everything, and if not helping she wants to do it all by herself. I'm surprised at all she can do on her own, but it still takes a lot of patience to allow her to try new things.


One morning we took some cookies across the street so Aaron, William and Sophia could decorate and enjoy their own cookies.


Here she is displaying her edible art.


We have been enjoying our friends. Some stranger than others.

  1. I love Christmas, too! We're actually going to be at our house for Christmas Day for the first time. Present opening, relaxing & probably a movie as well. We still haven't seen The Princess & the Frog so maybe that one or the Alvin & the Chipmunks Squeakquel. :)

    Merry Christmas!

  2. Very enjoyable post, glad you took the time to catch us up. We, too, are enjoying Christmas Eve and Day at home for the first time and I think we are really going to like it.
