Piglet Christmas 2010

Piglet went to Papa Jack's house for Christmas this year. We started with a trip to Gadsden to ride the choo choo train and look at lights. Everybody was all bundled up.
Piglet sure was excited about all the presents
And everybody wanted to take pictures with Piglet.

Here is one of Piglet's presents. A new laptop. So she can do her homework, just like Daddy.
When we woke up Christmas morning, it started snowing.
Then we went to Piglet's Great-Grandmother's house to see more family.
And it really got to snowing there.
Mommy went out in the snow for a good 10 seconds. She left just as soon as the snowball fight started.
Tebow in the shotgun.....
The world's worst snowman. Florida style.

Daddy's little snow angel
One of the highlights of present time was her new tinker bell scooter.
One of the least favorite presents was the helmet that has to be worn with it.

It was really cold outside, but that didn't stop Piglet. More family is coming this week, and we're going to Jacksonville for the weekend, so there should be more pictures soon.

Baby Rufus

I can't believe that I forgot to put up a picture of Rufus. This was taken a little over a month ago. Don't worry we have no intention of naming this baby Rufus it's just a name to call him/her until we know what name we will be using. It sounds much better than #2 or it. Of course, we will probably not have a real name until after Rufus is born because we are indecisive like that.

Piglet's Babies

These are Katie's babies and she loves them all so much. From left to right they are: Mommy baby, Mommy baby (formerly known as baby Jane), baby Christmas, Daddy baby (formerly known as other baby Charlie) and last is baby Charlie. Did you notice that the 2 Mommy babies have hair and the Daddy baby does not?
Here is a close up of baby Christmas. She along with the crib and blanket was an early Christmas present from Piglet's Aunt Linda and Uncle Donnie. Baby Christmas has quickly become Katie's favourite. When we play she always gets baby Christmas and gives me baby Charlie (her old favourite). Katie is also determined that baby Christmas is a boy even though he has pink clothes. She is just as determined that Rufus is a boy and will not be a girl. We will see if she's right.

We spent this Thanksgiving in Florida. We had a great time visiting with family and seeing some old friends. One highlight of the trip was Piglet getting to play with her cousins, she loves them so much!

We also went to see Papa JO.

We can't go to see Papa JO without also seeing JD. This was the first time Katie would actually sit on him.

McLeod Reunion 2010

Last month, we attended the McLeod reunion Piglet loved seeing some of her relatives.

Here is cousin Aidan.

After the reunion, Daddy took her to the fair.
Piglet rode a bunch of rides like a big girl.

Cousin Yaya came along for the ride too.

This morning, we found Papa in the living room, doing whatever Piglet wanted, including the hot dog dance.


We went to Virginia for a short vacation. Ever since we got married, Chrissy has wanted to go somewhere that had fall foliage. There was lots of it in the Shenandoah Valley along Skyline Drive.

We walked about 8 miles of trails.
It was really foggy in the mornings, but always cleared up by evening.

We spent a little time on the Appalachian Trail, or the A T as us experienced hikers call it.

It was cold for Chrissy

The hiking was tough too, but worth it for the views.

After a few days in the mountains, we went to see some historic sites.
Like Monticello, Thomas Jefferson's house.

And the Jamestown Settlement
