Avalee's first snow experience. I think she thought it was sand, but she soon learned that it was cold and wet. Posted by Hello

After having opening this present, Avalee did not want to open anymore. The phone talked and sang to her and she was happy. Posted by Hello

Avalee's "Uh-o"

Sunday morning was a little crazy. Nathan was sick and decided to stay home and keep Lincoln with him. I took Avalee to church. I got her dressed in her Christmas dress, a onesie, and tights. Avalee knew she was cute. We got to church and was enjoying the christmas music from the choir when I hear "uh-o mommy". I looked over and could see the bench was wet. I figured that her sippy cup had leaked but soon realized it was still in the diaper bag. Avalee grabbed her crouch and I realized that she had peed on the bench.

Sometime between the time I got her dressed and the time we left for church Avalee had taken her diaper off. Remember she had tights and a onesie on. I guess it is time to potty train.

Lincoln is calm and clean! Posted by Hello

Avalee loves the webelos so much that she walked at least three blocks holding Purev's hand. Posted by Hello

Avalee loved visiting the fire station with the Webelos. Nathan had to take her away kicking and screaming. The firefighters laughed and everyone decided she might want to be a firefighter when she grows up. Posted by Hello

Lincoln sits on Santa's lap and is calm. He even managed to not spit up and ruin the Santa suit. Small miracle! Posted by Hello

After waiting in line for at least 45 minutes, Nathan throws his hand out in digust as Avalee jumps off Santa's lap and runs away. Posted by Hello
