New Year's Eve






We, along with Portland, got some snow this week and again this morning. I wish Lacy could have played  in it more, but we also played on Wednesday when we were hit with snow. Thank GOODNESS I left Portland on Monday. I knew the rest of the week snow was forecasted and I better get home. Well, turns out, Portland(and HR) was hit Tuesday and it was HORRIBLE. When I took a super enthusiastic Lacy outside first 15 minutes she cried almost non-stop, scared she was going to fall, snow got in her face, then upset that she had tears and a runny nose...oh yes...this momma had to muster up a LOT of patience. Then, POOF...she was all acclimated and you never would have known the tears were there to begin with. Once she knew she was safe, she was running all over to find the perfect place to plop down and make a
snow angel:)


Daddy and Lacy ready to leave for the store







Lacy's reaction when it was time to come in. Poor thing did not really get to 'play' in the snow today. BUT, it was starting to rain and it was also 1pm and she had not eaten since breakfast(another reason for the tears). Hopefully we'll see more winter wonderland in 2010:)


LOTS of fun Christmas photos to come!

YOU tell me how?? :)

I placed Ashley down on the floor gym, on her back, right on the sun in the center. I was checking on her often while doing the dishes. I swear it had only been a minute and look where I see her next!!!!





















I have NO idea HOW she got there! So I know she rolled over from her back to her stomach, which she has not yet done, although she has been SUPER close for so long now, but even by rolling over she would not get outside of the gym AND in that spot! Lacy and I had a good laugh over this and even this photo makes me chuckle. The expression on her face and it just KILLS me that I honestly do not know how she did this. Oh man, I better look out, those crazy days of a baby on the move with big sister LITTLE toys all over. Ready or not, here it comes.

It's officially Tofslie tradition!







This is the third year running that we have taken photos with our tree lights before we put them on the tree and I have decided it is now tradition! Especially, as Lacy has taken a liking to it as well! How cute, she grabbed her camera and has her own ideas of taking a picture of her special Christmas snow globes:) And she also had to take a photo of mommy and daddy by the lights. It was hilarious to watch her move all around and position the camera JUST so to take the photo. If I had more time I would upload the photo from her camera of Eddy and I laughing by the lights:) Miss Ashley missed out this year as she was long in bed while we were beginning the decorating fun. Next year she will join in! I thought it would be fun to see the previous years photos and posted them as well. With all the photo fun, we only finished the lights on the tree! And today we leave in a couple hours for the Nutcracker! Eventually our tree will be finished...and if you know me, I prefer to have the tree bought, up, and decorated the day after Thanksgiving! Oh well, tis the season with two little ones and one being a baby!

Christmas Celebration

Oh man...cuteness overload. I wanted to wait to post this and leave the previous post for the day...but I can't help it! Mammie sent the girls some antlers and Miss Happy Pants looks so darn cute in them:) Too bad they blend in with the tree. I can't wait to post all our Christmas fun we have had so far! More coming soon. (ok, SO irritated that there is some weird compression going on around Ashley cheek and chin! It's NOT supposed to be there-if you click on the photo it's not as bad..just showing up when I post it. Still cute though, right?!)

Half way over....


How can this be? My sweet baby girl is 6 months today. Honestly, I am tearing up writing this. Having our second daughter was been SO wonderful, but so crazy fast. It is such a bittersweet day. I will be doing a 6 month photo shoot this week and when those photos are posted will also post all the tidits about this sweet pea. I also have been taking some video...although I am WAY behind on those! For now, here is one photo from Ashley all bundled at Zoo Lights last week just on Eddy's point-and-shoot camera.

We love you little one!



Maybe just slow it down a little, will you? :)
