and we're up!

You'll find out what the title means at the end of the blog.

Sorry it has taken me so long to update the blog. We have been so busy around here. Thanksgiving was great fun---lots of family, food, football, food, teething, food, and lack of sleep. No, really it is was very special, especially since it was Margaret's first Thanksgiving. Wade and I got up early Thanksgiving morning and walked the 5 mile Boulevard Bolt. Then we gathered at his grandmother's house for our first meal and celebration. Finally, we settled in at my parents' house for our final meal. It was all very delicious and special---so nice to have my sister and her family in town! We think Margaret is getting a few teeth in all at once, so she had some trouble sleeping. However, we made it through and finished the night off with the annual viewing of Christmas Vacation--yes!
We also celebrated Daddy's 30th Birthday . . . a couple of times!

Margaret loves her daddy. She also loved the candles on his cake. We had a smaller version of our grooms cake from our wedding. Delish!

Apple Cake with Caramel Icing
Over the weekend we traveled back up to my parents' mountain house, so Wade could meet with a client. It snowed----gorgeous!

Margaret's First Snow

If only we had a snowsuit . . .

Why do these people want me to smile? I'm cold.

Pretty Sweet


And Daddaddy let Margaret listen to his Ipod.
She was very confused but loved it!

and now what you've been waiting for . . .

Margaret started crawling this week, and over the weekend she really perfected it! It has been so much fun to watch her discover this process. She can even go from belly to sitting up all by herself. I know that once she starts there is no stopping her, but we are just so proud of our little preemie baby. She is such a big girl now. Every milestone just melts my heart! Happy holidays!
