This weekend we had a huge snow storm...approx 20 inches. Last year Sophie was too small to go out in the snow so we bundled her up and braved the cold so she could see what it was like. She seemed to like it until she did a face plant in a snow bank.....that was the end of that.




Last year we started a tradition when Sophie was only 8 weeks old to go to Little Compton to get out tree....so this year we all piled into the car (Juneau too) and off we went. This year Sophie could run all around the farm, and she loved it.




Once again it has been quite a while since I have had the time to do any posts. Sophie is changing everyday and growing into a very active and interested toddler. She is only walking now, and of course into everything!!! Here are a few shots of Thanksgiving. We had double duty with lunch at my Dad's and dinner at Carl's Uncle Andy's. Sophie loved the turkey and all the fixins!!!!

Halloween!!!!!! Sophie was a turkey this year, last year she was only 12 days old so she did not go out, but this year she went trick or treating with Oliver....who was a dragon. They were so cute in the wagon together. Since Sophie doesn't speak much yet Oliver did all the work and even would pick out the candy and put it in Sophie's bucket. She didn't eat any but had a great time just playing with the wrappers!!!





After the birthday party we continued a yearly tradition a week later and went pumpkin picking with Juneau and Sophie. Juneau loves to run in the field and Sophie rode in the wagon. We picked 3 big pumpkins and so far Juneau has only tried to eat one of them!!!!





Sophie turned one on October 18 and we had a big party for her at our house. She had many family and friends come to celebrate with her.....it was a great time!!! Here are some shots from the day. I have to add one of the 2 cakes....which I made from scratch and took me aprox 7 hours!!!! They came out pretty good though for the first time.....with some advice from my girls in the ED.....

Soon to come......somebodies first birthday party....








So, many new things have obviously taken place in the last 2 months. We have been so busy that i have not made any new posts....so here they are. First, we went on our first real vacation. Top Sail Island NC is was....and we drove the entire 13 hours to get there. Sophie stayed in her first hotel room and was fantastic in the car. We had the best time just relaxing and playing all day in the sand and water. She had her 2 cousins to keep her entertained and it was so nice to see almost the whole family......already planning next year!!! Here are a few shots of out trip.....

Sorry it has been so long since I added any pics of Sophie but the summer can get very busy......so she has 2 teeth now, is crawling ALL OVER the place, and is standing for short periods of time on her own.  This is all very crazy to me becaues in my eyes she is still a newborn!!!  Here are a few shots of her over the past few weeks.....

Bath time!!!



Sophie's favorite time of the day is bath time...she actually cries when I take her out of the tub.  I let her stay until her little feet are all wrinkled...

First day at the beach!!!






Carl and I finally took Sophie for her first real beach day.  She likes the sand but I think the water was too cold....maybe in a few weeks she will like it more

Check out our new Jeep!!!  I really miss my Wrangler so I decided to get Sophie one of her own....



Sophie seems to be getting bigger everyday...she is doing something new and fun every time I turn around.  She is almost crawling, and is able to stand on her own for a few seconds.  We love to spend time outside....when the weather is nice.  We go for long walks in the park and sometimes just like to sit on the back porch.
