It's Christmas!

First Hair Cut

Weird how her hair was so long on the sides, but not in the middle.

She was watching Elmo to distract her.


I wasn't planning on bangs, but I just couldn't stop clipping away with all that hair in her face!

Lera's Blessing Day

We are SO happy Grandma and Grandpa Thompson were here!

This baby has a lot of love.

It was freezing!

Jared's mom made this beautiful gown!

Lera was not enjoying the pictures.

She was enjoying sleeping in Grandma's arms better.

with Aunt Lorraine, Lincoln, and Uncle Trevor

Pretty Girls

Thanks for Lera's Christmas dress, Nan-Naw and Paw-Paw!

Christmas Fun: Mimi and Poppy's

Aren't they cute?

Thanks, everyone, for the presents!

I like how this picture caught a double flash from two cameras.

Christmas Fun: Visiting Santa

Bass Pro Shop

Funny story to go with this picture: As we were walking over to this tree (well, Chess was running) Chess fell down and the fake snow went all over her. She started to say, "Ohhhh, maaaan!" Apparently Jared and/or I say that a lot when something bad happens. It's really cute when Chess says it, and the fact that she knows when it's appropriate to say it. Now, whenever she sees this picture, she can't look at it without saying, "Ohhhh, maaaan!"

Yay - no crying! She kinda liked Santa, I think.

Chess was telling Santa about something. He was very sweet.
