Merry Christmas!

We had a great Christmas with our families this year. The highlight for Luella was a Christmas pony (or mony as Luella calls him). It sings a fun little song...'I'm a little pony, hippity hop...' anyone who has been to our house for any length of time now knows this song by heart.

Gingerbread Land

We built our first ginger bread house tonight. Don't let the photo of Luella helping fool you, she spent most of her time trying to eat the decorations.

Snow Day

So far it's turned out to be a snow day for Mommy and Baby. We decided to attempt a snowman this morning. It took me a while to remember everything a snow man needed, we almost left him outside without arms! I wish I could say Luella had a great time helping, but unfortunately she spent most of her time telling me there was 'a mess' on her boots (it was the snow). I'm sure it won't take long for her to love it! Before we went inside she did give her 'no mean' a kiss.

Adventures in the snow & Tree Decorating

Well Luella's reaction to the snow isn't exactly what we'd expected. Her new favorite words are 'a mess' and that is exactly what she thinks of the snow! She was very content to just sit in her chair with her feet off the ground.

Luella was pointing out to Daddy that our tree was making 'a mess'.

First sledding trip around the yard.

Black Friday Shopping!

Luella and I scanned the ad's and headed out (at 9am). We didn't find very many treasures. I did learn one lesson however, if you need to buy milk on Black Friday...well, drink water instead.

First Hair Cut

Aside from trimming her bangs this is her first haircut at 18 mos! Luella did pretty well, Mommy was prepared with gummy worms! Luella is so used to having her hair blow dried and fixed every morning this was nothing. Luella even gave Jackie a big hug when she was done.

Here is her before photo

And some during and after photos
