Sledding

We actually rounded up everyone out of the house this year and went sledding (A HUGE feat for my bah humbug husband). We received a ton of snow on Christmas Eve so it made perfect sledding powder. Blake was completely terrified. He went down the hill with his dad. There…

Christmas #2

We celebrated Christmas #2 with Troy’s family. Santa brought Blake some presents because of the message on his bib. Blake dressed up as Santa and was definitely the cutest Santa I saw all season. These pictures were fun to take because Troy kept pretending to drop Blake, and then he…

Gobble Gobble

We spent Thanksgiving in the Valley of the Sun. I never thought I’d be posing in front of palm trees on Thanksgiving Day. The grandparents soaked up major grandson time. Blake experienced his very first Thanksgiving feast complete with his own turkey bone. Ok, we didn’t really let him gnaw…
