Sadly, back in August, Dash was dispatched from his throne as the newest, cutest little fur ball in the family. Meet Clover. Their first meeting was a bit tense. Initially, I was quite glad a few states would separate them, but by the end of the visit the four-legged kids had started to get along a bit better. Isn’t that always true of family?
Answers to commonly asked Christmas questions this year:
- No she didn’t cry, but she didn’t sit on his lap either. Healthy fear of strangers.
- A big girl stroller for her babies, a digital camera, blocks and arts and craft supplies.
- Not really, maybe next year.
- Same dress as last year.
- Seeing baby Rachel
The last batch of pictures from a very fun visit to see the whole family in New Jersey. We didn’t know it at the time, but Ce was getting sick and wasn’t her usual picking machine self out in the cherry orchard. She still managed to put away a good number and this year she understood the whole pit in the middle concept.
Continuing the catch-up from our trip down to Grandmother and Papa’s house: here is a look at the cousins going deep sea fishing. I have to say despite the endless colds and sometimes leg dragging drop-offs, I do appreciate how much daycare has helped Ce socialize and play with other kids.
You can also see she definitely inherited her Mama’s love of the water as there was no way Daddy was putting his feet in that ice bath. I’m glad kids are impervious to cold.
