just an update....

This month has been flying by! Here are some notable high lights:
- We are almost one month through another Iowa winter and Travis and I are both in okay spirits about the winter. Normally by this time in December we're moaning and groaning. We've each been snowboarding once, and Travis took Savannah sledding once. That probably helped.

- Our crazy Christmas party week is passed. We had 5 parties to go to in 14 days. 3 of them included white elephant gifts. Some things we came home with : The Everybody Poops book, a "Water Spider" pool toy (sorry Beth and Brian), The Emu doll, and a T-Rex tooth - along with some other treasures. We got to go to Perfect games for two of the parties and play lazer tag. I beat Travis at lazer tag, race car driving, and DDR at one of them. That was fun :)

- We got most of our Christmas shopping all done a week or more ago.
- We had our last Escape of the year, until January 13th. It will be nice to have a few weeks off.
Here are some pictures of Savannah ... that's why you're here... really. (Savannah updates at the bottom)

Yep, she's a keeper. Here's what she's up to now:
- Still taking 2 naps a day. One from 9 - 10:30 and one from 2 - 3:30. Then she goes to bed at 7:30pm and wakes up at 6:30am. I talked to her doctor about it because it seems like everyone is telling me that she should have dropped a nap but he said she's just so busy when she's awake that she probably needs the sleep.

- She weighs 27 pounds.
-She still drinks soy milk, but she loves Cheese. The cheese is easier on her then straight up milk (Travis and I have the same deal). She also loves cookies right now (thanks for everyone who gave us cookies and introduced them to her diet), and waffles. We're struggling right now to get fruit and especially veggies down. But we'll keep at it.
- She's having fun experimenting with things she can crawl under, jump off of, and run into. She also likes running around with things over her head so she can't see where she's going.
- She talks constantly! Not a ton of real words yet (although she does have some), but lots and lots and lots of babbling.

Snowed in.

Travis stayed home from school yesterday to go to the doctor. Then today he had a snow day! Even better, they have already canceled school for tomorrow too! They have 3 built in snow days so he wont have to make up for today or tomorrow.
Here's some pictures from today:

Travis spent 4 hours shoveling out us and our neighbors. Savannah just looked out the window at him a lot of that time until I finally suited her up and sent her out. She only lasted 10 minutes.
Look how pinky her cheeks are!

Morgan and Jasey spent the night last night. I like seeing their faces. I like having slumber parties with them. We (they) made Christmas cookies this afternoon. We pretty much just hung out in warm the house while Travis was outside all day.


Savannah has picked up on what to do when I hold the camera and say "Say Cheese!"
It's the best.

She also picked up on Karaoke.
Second best.

It snowed today. Not feeling so hot about that, literally. But Savannah didn't seem to mind all that much:
I've been trying to have a better attitude about the seasons this year. I hate winter so much that I usually start dreading it as soon as the first leaves fall to the ground. Fall has always just been the intro to winter for me. I really did appreciate fall in a new light this year - we spent a lot of time outside (with coats on) and played in leaves. I'm even a little sad to see it go. My dad says winter is awesome because of sledding... right? I'm not a huge sledding fan, but I think I'm going to give snowboarding a shot this year. It's all an attempt to enjoy the seasons. So... here we go!
