Merry Christmas

Christmas has come and gone and Abby and Sam certainly made things fun. With Chris on vacation from Sam's birth to the end of the year we made a few trips out. Abby and Chris rode the Lebanon Christmas train. Abby loves trains but the ride was less than memorable. Of most note was the visit to Santa. Abby got off the train and sat on Santa's lap. She instantly screamed but is now so proud of the picture (we'll have to scan it).

Stef and Abby went to the Niederman Farm Christmas display. A lot of lights and some scenes from the Bible.

Abby and Sam hung out together and got cozy.

Here they are just sitting together

Abby loves her brother

Big sister and little brother shirts

Abby in her blankie pretending to be a pumpkin... whatever that means.

Abby and Stef made some cookies for Santa

Sam got his first bath

And of course everyone was excited for Christmas

Abby opening presents... her hair is a mess from her nap

Abby enjoying some bubble wrap by running back and forth on it

It's been pretty rough with a 2 year and 2 week old in the house but we'll work on posting some of the videos we got too.

Another Round of Catch Up

Its been a while since we posted last. Not for a lack of news, just busy getting ready for our new addition. Since the last post we...

Celebrated Veterans Day at GE...
Abby enjoyed the cool "copter" fly overs (Apache & Blackhawk)
Checked out the zoo...
Abby liked the freedom to walk around
Barnyard animals can be scary though
Fed some deer...

They actually came!

Enjoyed a Thanksgiving at home...
Stef made a great dinner but Abby was most excited for the pumpkin cake

Got everything decorated for Christmas...
Abby was tired after "helping" decorate

Checked out the zoo again for their holiday lights and train ride...
And bundled ourselves against the cold...
She likes hoods

Soon they'll be another to share the holidays with...

Halloween weekend was a fun one! We carved a few pumpkins, had a great time trick-or-treating with the Bells and ate lots of yummy candy!
