Modeling for Grandma

Look, Mom - she grew into it!

Toasty warm, and so cute. Grandma Sweaters are extra warm because of all the love.

New Toy

Anna discovers bubble wrap...

...and we wonder exactly why we bought all those toys.

She's no Don King, but...

How does Tessa feel about having a new President?

Well. That was a long stretch of no posting. I blame Facebook and our new Wii. But I'm here to tell you that these past two and a half months have been full of activity. Let me tell it from Anna's and Tessa's perspectives. To them, the past two and a half months boil down to one event: CHRISTMAS!!!

The requisite early morning PJ pictures show the girls reveling in their new (and larger) dollhouse,

Tessa going absolutely bananas over her most favorite Disney princess (thanks to Anna for schooling her on all of the options),

and Anna breaking out her first Guitar Hero moment - no electronics required!

We've had a great couple of months despite getting some kind of virus or another at every turn lately. We've enjoyed visits from family, and we've especially enjoyed watching our country take a step into a new and brighter light. As cheesy as that sounds, I can't think of a better way to describe the feeling I had on January 20th as Eric and I watched the inauguration on a giant screen in a (warm) movie theater near home. Anna describes that day as "President Obama's special day," and I think it was a special day for a lot of us.

More to come soon!
