Christmas preparations

we already had Christmas with my family last weekend. I wish I would have gotten more pics, but I've attached what ones I did.
while we were there, we visited candy cane lane...Grace was amazed by all the lights. she is loving Christmas calls right now- especially silent night and away in a manger.
Graces little cousin, Elizabeth was a little leery of get after the last time they saw each other and Grace kept pushing her (at Grace's 2nd birthday party), so they didn't play much.  However, Grace had a lot of fun with her other cousin, Cadence, who is also 3 months younger. they played catch and colored.

I've also attached a picture of or Giuditta that we made for a mostly homemade Christmas

As i type, we are on our way to Brian's family.

more on Christmas, AFTER :-)

Knoebels Grove

Sept 8, We met up with nana and pappy for employee appreciation day at Knoebels Grove.  I was not sure how Grace would do, because she would be missing her nap and it would be the first time she could really go on rides (and by herself!!)  She really enjoyed it, except for taking a "plane ride" with Pappy....that she kind of freaked out for.  I think her favorite was the carousel and riding on the horses. 

Here are some pics for you to enjoy!!

First Snow of the Season!

I'm pretty sure this was the best snowfall I've ever experienced! I love having a little one to remind me of the joy of such things :-)

Grace graduated from her toddler sled...which was too boring and used one that I received for my 25th birthday...she totally rocked "scootching" to make herself go down the hill!

We also built a snowman that she enjoyed torturing by eating its nose. Haha.

Birthday Post (um..a bit belated)

This is so long overdue.  But here are some picture recaps of Grace's birthday.  We (um, me, mostly) like birthdays, and we, as a family have pretty much been doing little mini celebrations over a week or two).   Below, we have Brian's family's celebration from July 15th, her actual birthday where we took her and her good friend, Luke (you might remember him from here) to Zoo America in Hershey, and then her birthday party with my family in Williamsport.  I also enclosed a pic with her and my dad, "Grumps," whom we saw saw after the party. Enjoy!! (P.s. I have at least two more posts coming with lots more pics, including our vacation to Assetegue Island). I also have a letter I started, with updates...not posting yet (very sad, btw...too many people telling me she is such a big girl!!!)
