The Stockings Were Hung by the Chimney with Care...

Our house is ready for Christmas!

To make our house festive, I used the same blue and silver 
decorations that I've used over the last couple years:

However, this year I added these personalized stockings from Tiny Prints:


I love how the teal and green stockings add a personal touch, 
as well as tie in with our home's decor!







  
I also love how our pretty our house looks at night, too!

Candy Cane Christmas

Our outdoor Christmas decorations are up! In lieu of exchanging Christmas gifts this year, Tal and I invested in 56 candy cane lights to line our driveway and sidewalks during the holidays. We hope our candy cane light display spreads some Christmas cheer in our neighborhood!



 
 

Hadley is 2 Months Old!

Hadley is 2 months old today! During the last week, she has discovered her hands and started smiling. She continues to do well eating, sleeping, and going to the bathroom. ;-) Last night Hadley slept 10 hours straight (from 9 PM-7 AM), which is a tremendous blessing!

Since she was born two months ago, Hadley has gained 3 lbs. 12 oz. and grown 1.5 inches. Today Hadley weighs 11 lbs. 14 oz. and is 23 inches long, which puts her in the 50th percentile for both height and weight.   Hadley was a tough cookie when she got her first round of shots today. She stopped crying as soon as Tal picked her up. Hadley is a happy baby who brings us so much joy!

2014 Christmas Card

Here is our family's Christmas card!

This was my first year taking pictures for our Christmas card. In the past, we've always had our Christmas pics taken by a professional. For the backdrop, I spread a white sheet on our living room floor on a day when there was plenty of natural light. I set my camera on continuous mode and took about 100 quick pics of Hadley and Savannah...in hopes that a few would be decent for our Christmas card. Merry Christmas from our family to yours!

Thanksgiving Blessings

The four of us celebrated Thanksgiving with Tal's family in Salter Path. 
It was our first trip to Salter Path since Hadley was born 7 weeks ago. 

Hadley met Gran and Grandaddy for the first time:

For our Thanksgiving dinner, our family deep fried a turkey for the first time:

It was delicious!

While everyone ate lunch...

...Hadley slept in her swing. 
It was a luxury to be able to eat a leisurely meal while Hadley slept:
