Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas! It's nearly here, and I am nearly ready. There are still a few odds and ends I need to get, but the majority of my preparations are complete. This is a photo of some ornaments that I gave to a friend for our Scrapbooks, Etc. gift exchange. They came from my grandmother's home. My friend loved them. You can see her thoughts on them on her blog, listed along the sidebar as "be yourself: live with passion". She is a lovely, artistic lady, and likes all things vintage. I was nervous about the gift exchange but it was so fun. And Heidi, who gave me my gift, chose really well. I got a cute mug with goodies and a Starbucks gift card inside. Does she know me or what?

Merry Christmas everyone!

Sophie is a loser!

Literally. She finally lost her first tooth which held on FOREVER! The other tooth was grown in behind it. It was so loose that it was bothering her, and she was scared to pull it. She said "I am a tough sleeper, maybe daddy can pull it out while I am asleep." Well, it did not come to that, she was able to play with it and pull it out herself later that day.

She looks so cute with the hole in her face, and shows it off to everyone. As for me, with every one of her firsts I am reminded that it is a last-first for me as a mother. So here's to my last- first lost tooth!
