The weather outside...

Yesterday morning the first thing William wanted to do was snuggle with Gracie.

Gracie had her 4 month old check up and is now 12 lbs 1 oz. She is growing great and everything looks perfect. She did have to get her shots, but luckily she was able to come home and take a loooong nap with her daddy.

Today when we got up it was kind of snowing outside, but turned to rain before we got out there with the camera. Here is William ready to go outside. He is wearing a beanie I wore in High School, what does that tell you about his head?
We had some earends to run and went to Wal-Mart were they were taking pictures with Santa. When I asked William if he wanted to he said, "I don't like Santa." Well I ended up taking a picture with him and Gracie got one with Santa all by herself. I will post them when my scanner is up and running. We got our tree today, but will be decorating it tomorow.




















Can you tell we are ready for Christmas. This year we are doing a Activity Advent Calendar. This is what is going to go down:

I love that picture too, I got her dressed like that and brought her down stairs and Russ could not stop laughing. We are most likely going to be coming the 16th, or sometime around then.
