Happy Winter, Florida Style!

Push up! MARINE CORP! Clarissa is well on her way to crawling and by the looks of it she may crawl like Lila did. No knees. Silly girls.

Well, I'm knee deep in packing and trying to get ready for our trip. We leave early Wednesday morning for Jacksonville where the forecast for Christmas day is a balmy 77 degrees! I can't wait. We will spend Christmas (or Jeffmas as Jeff likes to call it) at Jeff's parents house with his parents, my Dad and Step-Mom and Jeff's sister, the now very obviously pregnant, Katie!

Kurtis left Saturday morning for Illinois where the Christmas day forecast is a frigid 8 degrees. BRRRRRR! He will be spending the holiday with his family there and comes home on January 3rd.

Rocko gets to stay here at Creekside All Pet Boarding. Luna will be left to guard the house.

Let it snow... I'm going swimming!

Oh the weather outside is frightful...

But our day was sure delightful!
We made gingerbread houses today! What fun! Unfortunately one of the houses didn't hold up in the end, but we had a blast making (and sampling) them anyway! Here are the kids hard at work...

Here is Clarissa showing off. She is very close to crawling. I already got out all the outlet covers and cupboard locks. It won't be long.... *sigh*

It started snowing just before 9:00 o'clock this morning and it has only slowed down a few times. Here is the snow at 9am, 10am & 11am!

Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!

So, Clarissa learned how to open the kitchen drawer. She & Lila played kitchen together. Pretty darn cute!

Kurtis is rad. Plus he has a great shaped head.

Kurtis is such a good kid. He is smart. He is funny. He is talented. He is very cute. Plus he rocks a mohawk! You know you wish you could!

My Mom came in from California for Thanksgiving this year. It was great to have her. Here are some photos from our short but sweet time!
