Well Nora did finally get to see Santa Clause and sit in his lap. It wasn't a planned event - we just happened up on him in the Lawn and garden department of Wal-Mart last week. They were taking digital pictures and we could pick up our free copy today.

I wish I had had my camera with me that day but I didn't. I will see if I can get their picture scanned and put up on the webpage for everyone to see. Maybe later this afternoon while she is napping.

Happy Weekend everyone - this time next weekend we will be rolling into Campbellsville! :)

I have been getting some phone calls asking what size clothes is Nora wearing so I thought it wouldn't hurt to post it here too incase anyone was wondering.

18 months is what she is wearing now and they are slightly big -pants a little long so we roll them up. This size should get her thru the season, but a few outfits in the next size 24 months wouldn't hurt either.

Whatever anyone decides to give us for Christmas will be appreciated as always :)

She got new tennis shoes from Gma Minor when we were home (size 5.5) in October. But she has outgrown her Sunday shoes and all of her socks. If you would like more details or gift ideas feel free to call us or email

We're dreaming, of a white Christmas!

On Friday 12/16 we will be headed north bound for Kentucky! We are looking forward to spending our vacation with our families. David is off work until January 3rd.

We hope Nora will get to play in the snow while we are home. Maybe if we are really lucky we will get to make a snowman. We can't wait to see everyone! Only 10 days until we leave!!!

Well they say that practice makes perfect and if that is true, then Nora is well on her way to mastering Lego’s! :)

Her favorite toy are now Lego Blocks b/c this past week she has taken a new interest in them. Before now, she would walk thru them and swat them around with her hands and occasionally carry one around and chew on it (not to worry, she cant’ choke on them - they are the great big ones.) But now she plays with them all day long!

She sat in the floor for over an hour putting together 7 of the single blocks and then taking them apart and lining them up on the hearth and then putting them back together. She did this over and over and over and…… The day that she first did this, I thought that it would just be for the day, but since then she has been so absorbed in these Lego’s everyday!

She has to have at least 2 in her hands all day - in the highchair while eating, in the car, in the bathtub and even in her bed when at nap time when she goes to bed! The last 3-4 mornings when she wakes up we can hear her on the monitor playing and talking to her Lego’s.

This weekend we actually got to sleep in until 8:30!! Wooo HOooo! ;)
