Christmas Day

We woke up to a white Christmas! The first here in Nashville in 17 years. I was so excited! It snowed on and off all day. I prayed for a white Christmas:) I miss snow so much around this time of year.

Eagerly waiting to open presents:)

Can't forget the Christmas socks

My stocking stuff:)

Jude got a lot of Thomas the Tank Engine trains and tracks.

New Camera!

So as a Christmas gift this year my WONDERFUL husband got me a new camera that I've been wanting, a Nikon D90. It's actually a Christmas/birthday/Valentine's Day present since it was a bit expensive. I've only had it for a day now, but I already love it and have a lot to learn about it since it has so many more features than my old one. Here are a few pics I took with it today.

This picture of Claire looks so much like my baby pictures in this pic. I wish I had the photo of me on this computer so I could post them side by side.

I find this squirrel perched on our deck railing every morning eating his breakfast, which are the nuts from the tree that grows right beside our deck. Unfortunately, sometimes they wake me up at dawn with the sound of the nuts dropping onto our deck roof and our patio table.

Going to bed. Notice the misty eyes. Sometimes it's so hard to say goodnight. I just want to pick her back up and snuggle her all night.

Jude and Ruby

We let Jude open a couple gifts early to get him excited about Christmas. He got a Thomas train and pajamas. It worked because now he keeps asking for more presents.
