Happy 2011, Year of the Big Girl!

| 2 Comments

Emily has enjoyed wearing her Happy New Year “headband” the past few days:

We celebrated the New Year with her at midnight GMT. I have no idea what that means.

Here Emily and I are sharing the bean-bag chair:

This wonderful invention is a recent discovery for me, even though we’ve had it for well over a year.

2011 will be the Year of the Big Girl. On New Year’s Eve, Daddy and Mommy magically transformed the crib into a big-girl bed — which allows Emily to enter and exit at will.

I don’t expect this will go well.

Our Christmas

Grandma Janet visited the weekend before Christmas:

She brought a cape and muff for Emily, among many other things:

On Christmas morning, Santa brought Emily a Tinkerbell umbrella and Tinkerbell slippers, just as she requested:

(And a Tinkerbell bowl, and Tinkerbell underwear, and ... .)

The day after Christmas, Emily assisted in the making of this very small, devil-eyed snowperson that bears a striking resemblance to my Daddy:

Here’s Emily in front of our tree:

Merry Christmas, Santa!

On Christmas Eve, Emily helped make the cookies for Santa:

She put the cookies on the table for Santa:

And then she ate the cookies for Santa:

(In truth, Emily [like her Daddy] was just taste-testing the cookies to make sure they were good enough for Santa. You’ll notice that we started with four cookies on the plate, and there were still four cookies on the plate when Emily was eating one. Really, Santa! I swear!)

Emily liked helping to pick and decorate the Christmas tree.

This was the scene after it was done:

And the tree itself:

(My German is very good.)
