First School pictures

Violet just got her first school pictures back.  It seems like it's the first milestone of many.

We also just got holiday pictures done.

And recently we decorated a gingerbread house.  We are all just waiting to start eating it!

Victory is mine!

 Violet is finally at the age where she is "getting" the holidays.  She is still talking about trick or treating and visiting the pumpkin patch, even though it was well over a month ago.  She loved getting a present every night for Hanukkah and some nights had more than one thanks to friends and relatives.

Lucky for her, she gets to celebrate Christmas as well.  She really enjoyed helping pick out the tree.

She picked out her first ornament, a chocolate cupcake.

Here's a video of her enjoying the snow in Tahoe.

Snow for the first time!

Violet and I went to Tahoe for the first half of Thanksgiving week to have a reunion with some family friends.  Violet's favorite part of the trip was making a new friend but she also just loved the snow.  When you asked her "How was the snow?" she would always answer "Good!".  There wasn't much snow on the ground, but it didn't take much to keep the girls happy.
