Visiting Santa 2007

Well, I guess I don't have to tell you that this was our worst year yet. Abigail has yet to cry when we visited Santa and I thought since she is older and has things she is actually asking for for Christmas that she might want to talk to him. I was wrong! We waited about an hour in line and she seemed excited about it and told us all the things she wanted to tell him like "I want a dishwasher, twins babies, clothes for them, and everything I need." That is her list for this year, however when it came time to go through with it she didn't want to get near him much less sit on his lap. So we now have the crying santa picture. She did tell us later that she had fun. Go figure. I wanted to scan in the last two years pictures with Santa but it will have to wait until I finish this enormous amount of wrapping that has to get done here before Sunday and Abigail is sleeping now and it is prime time! Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!

Christmas 2007

It's not Christmas yet but we have been modeling and photographing the new outfits Grammy made us to wear this Christmas season. With the warm weather we have been having in December it was nice to make pictures outside. It was at least 70 degrees yesterday and today.
Because I am sure everyone has been wondering about Abigail's potty training(ha!) and for my own documentation purposes we are extremely close to being trained and it all started the Monday after Thanksgiving. That day she finally used the potty rather that just sitting there for an hour and I think it just clicked in her head what to do. She does great at home and rarely has accidents, however we haven't really tried using the potty in public so she is still wearing diapers/pull-ups when we leave the house. Also we are Christmas shopping and staying away from home longer than usual so that doesn't exactly help. She is such a creature of habit she can't really go without her particular seat that she uses. It looks like she might be able to go to preschool next fall after all!
