Play-doh Party

M got a fun Play-doh set from her cousin for Christmas, and ever since we pulled it out, she can't get enough!  It took us a while to figure out that she says "play-doh" as "me-oh", but once we did she asks for it all the time.  It's so fun to see her getting seriously into her playtime lately.

Another Snow Day

Uncle Tommy came up one Saturday, and we had a little impromptu snow day!  It was a really nice day, and we had so much fun.

Just A Bunch of Pictures

Just thought I'd share a bunch of recent pictures, from Christmas and beyond.
 Matching snowman jammies.

 M giving A "pats".
 M the giraffe mechanic.

 The results of M's first self-inflicted haircut, performed right before church and with the hair-cutting scissors.
 A after bathtime.  Can't believe she's almost two months old!
 M had a hard time waking up after a nap and fell asleep on the couch.

Christmas 2010

We had a great Christmas this year!  M gets so much more fun with every passing holiday.  This year, we made Christmas sugar cookies at Gma and Gpa Brinton's with Clark, Kjerstin, and Tom.
 She helped me roll out the dough and cut out the cookies.  We got matching aprons from Grandma and got to put them to good use.
 She was such a good little helper.  I was glad we could do something fun together, because it seems like she doesn't get as much attention for just fun things lately.
 M soon realized that the dough was pretty tasty.  Chris caught her red-handed in this picture!
We spent Christmas Eve with the Mann's doing a gift exchange, dinner, and a program.  M was the angel in the nativity scene, and A was the baby Jesus.  Chris was the narrator, and I dressed up like a shepherd. 

Christmas morning was just us at home.  M made a pretty good haul this year.  Her big gifts were a Cozy Coupe, a pink rocking horse, and a dollhouse.
She thought it was pretty great to get to have candy for breakfast!  We found this great table and chairs at IKEA a few months ago and got it as a joint gift for the girls, even though A won't be able to use it for a while.  We put it in M's room, and she loves it!

Merry Christmas!  After we opened all of our gifts, we went up to my parents' house and had some more fun there.  We have had a ton of parties and lots of fun the last couple of weeks!  I am going to need a few days just to recover from all the fun.

I got a pocket camcorder with some of my birthday money, so for the first time, here are a few videos!
