OK, so this video is just her babbling, but she actually said “Papa” today…twice to make sure we knew it was not an accident. What a wonderful little girl we have!
The Christmas tree went up last night. A friend from Joe’s work gave it to us from there farm for Emmy’s first Christmas. Joe did an amazing job decorating the house again. We have 5 beautiful wreaths and a lovely mantle display of fruits and pinecones and greenery. It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas with the snowy blanket outside. I have started writing our Christmas cards which I was wise enough (pats herself on the back) to get on clearance last year after the holidays. I love these cards…you’ll see.
I have picked up my crochet hook again and am working on my own fall colored afghan made of Lion Brand Homespun yarn. I really love the feel and variegation of this yarn.
Joe reminded me that I have more to publish on my blog than just pictures of Emmy so I will make an effort to include all facets (within reason, of course) of our life. Well, off to do some more cards. Happy Holidays!
