The Allison chair

Allison got her own recliner for Christmas (from my parents).  It matched our furniture surprisingly well and has been a big hit so far.  

Zoo day

PToday was our last zoo day of the year and also Taylor's first trip to the zoo.  She slept through most of it but we had a great time and the weather was perfect.  Looking forward to more trips as a family of four.

It's Christmas Eve and I finished Taylor's stocking this morning.  Now it's hanging with all the others.  I'm officially ready for Christmas.

Bailey Rides

One of Allison's favorite things about visiting Kevin's parents for the holidays is that Stacey and her dogs are here too.  Bailey needs an extra big bone from Santa for putting up with this.

Girls Christmas lunch

We met Holly and Brooklyn in Las Colinas for our annual Christmas gift exchange.  The girls are growing up so fast.

Allison climbed up in the rocker with Kevin and Taylor this afternoon.  They sure look cute all together.

Ice Day

Almost as good as a snow day, though harder to play in.  Allison was so excited to go outside but a little frustrated when we wanted to make snow balls only to find that the white stuff wasn't exactly fluffy.  She still had a great time then went inside for a nice hot bath to warm up.

Allison's tree

One of Allison's favorite Christmas activities is un-decorating the Christmas tree.  This year we gave Allison her own tree to play with so hopefully she will leave the big one alone.  She's already decorated it and the ornaments are currently scattered all over the living room.

Swing Set

Christmas came early for Allison this year.  Kevin's parents bought the girls a swing set for Christmas.  Kevin and his dad spent most of Friday putting it together and yesterday we did the big reveal.  Allison was so excited.  First thing this morning she wanted to go play.
