We had a wonderful Thanksgiving, ate too much yummy food. The pies seem to get better and better each year. We started decorating Friday and watched the Charlie Brown specials while we pigged out on left over cheesecake. I love the old Christmas shows. White Christmas was on last night. It's just not Christmas without a little bit of Bing! I'm really enjoying the holidays this year. Sophie helped me wrap presents today. So if the paper looks a little worn, Sophie helped with that one! She loves tearing the paper. It's so cool watching her get excited over paper and bows. Just wait til Daddy gets his lights up!

There are nights I just watch her in amazement. This is my child. So many nights I dreamed of being a mother. I wondered what our daughter would be like. She is so much more than I could have ever imagined. Her smile, those beautiful brown eyes, I just melt. Tonight she was so sleepy. While she waited for her bottle, she cuddled with me sucking on those three little fingers and looking at me with those adorable eyes. Words cannot begin to describe how much I love this child. She is truly amazing.

I finally down loaded the pictures from Hallelujah night. We went to the local festival at the church down the street. Sophie soaked up all the attention. She lasted longer than I expected that evening. We didn't get to see Levi in his puppy dog outfit but I did run out to see him while daddy stayed in with our sleepy beauty. When she's ready for bed, well , let's just say EVERYONE is happier when you put her there! Levi is just starting to crawl. He is such a little ham. I love watching both of them with their very different personalities. This past Sunday we cooked for my dad and had both of them there together, sipping out of their sippy cups, zipping around in the walkers, playing with the train. I really enjoyed spending the day like that.
It was nice not to rush and just enjoy everyone's company.
