A little scare, but everything was ok...

The other day we laid Sophie down for a nap. Like normal she wimpers for a couple minutes and then falls asleep. This day her little wimpers became more of a cry so I went to check on her and she had gotten her foot caught between the rails of her crib! She was face down and her foot was literally twisting backwards. I yelled for Jake and he tried turning her foot back through, but she was so worked up that she wouldn't relax enough for us to move it. Jake ended up breaking the rail to get her foot out and thankfully it was only a little swollen. Thank God she didn't break her ankle! Jake ran out to Menards and fixed the crib rail. Now with a little stain it will look as good as new!

Santa was a no go...

This year we thought it would be fun to dress Sophie up and go to see Santa. She looked too cute in her matching Santa dress!
At first the day started out great. She loved seeing all the babies and Christmas decorations at the mall. We arrived at Santa's throne and waited in line to see him. Sophie seemed content so we went ahead and picked out a photo package imagining the perfect little Christmas card!

It was finally our turn for Santa and if we had a timer I think she lasted 2.2 seconds on his lap! She screamed and turned red in the face, she looked as if we had sat her on hot coals!! So needless to say Santa was a no go...better luck next year:)

Family visits for the holidays...

Jake and I were so excited when our families both decided to visit us in our new home! Jake's parents arrived 3 weeks ago and we had an early Thanksgiving celebration along with fun days playing with Sophie. The weather was still nice then so we actually took a stroll around the neighborhood for some fresh air and to burn off some of that delicious meal! I was very happy Sophie warmed right up to Gramps and Grandma Dakota(Ha!)!

My parents visited this past weekend and I couldn't wait to see them. This was the longest time we've had in between visits and we long awaited their arrival.

Something they always wanted to do was take Sophie out on the town. They dressed her up in this adorable outfit from Jake's Mom and went for a joy ride through the mall and of course for her cream and french fries!

Their stay went by too fast like always, but that is because we always have such a great time. We stayed up a couple nights past 2am playing the intense game Taboo!

Thanksgiving dinner was yummy and we actually just finished up the leftovers!

Up next...home for the Chirstmas!! We will be home Christmas Eve until Jan. 2! We are so excited to spend time with friends and family.
