Jake is crawling... sort of... well maybe not.

So Jake can move. It's just an army crawl and backwards. He ends up in some interesting spots.

Christmas Eve

This year Christmas with the Potter side of the family was at our house. It was great catching up everyone and seeing how much Charlotte has changed. We had spaghetti pie for lunch, a version of the white elephant gift exchange and then the babies needed a nap.

Charlotte and Jake

Sophie got a book that turns into a car from Charlotte and family. Her favorite present.

Mike ended up with some sort of tool.

Grandma Linda helped me make these photo props for pictures this year. Sophie loved them.

Grandma Potter even joined in the fun.

Christmas Day

Oh what fun Christmas morning was with Sophie and Jake. Sophie was very much into Santa this year and all the traditions that come with it. So exciting to watch her go around the corner and see if Santa stopped.

Sophie picked out a little kitchen for Jake.

Very excited.

Sophie also got a Barbie Jet from Mom and Dad.

The big gift from Santa was Sophie's doll house.

We headed over to the Potter's for lunch - everyone was probably starving because no one would eat the red and green pancakes I made. Sophie said she just likes pancakes from McDonald's. Aunt Melissa was helping Sophie build a house with her new Lincoln Logs.

After lunch we headed over to the Langstaff's for dinner. Jake was loving his new present from Nanna and Grandpa.

Sophie got a Squinkies Barbie House from Aunt Jodi.

We whipped out the Christmas photo props for a few family pictures. Jake was having trouble channeling Rudolph.

Preschool Christmas Program

Well our little munchkin had her first Christmas program last Friday. So sweet to watch her with her preschool class and so sad to think how fast the last 4 years have gone. She did such an awesome job. So proud to be her mama.

Here are 3 of the songs from the program.

Jingle Bells

Baby Jesus - We Love You

Wish You a Merry Christmas

After that look it was difficult to hold back the tears.
