Ho Ho Ho, 2008

Merry Christmas!

We celebrated Lucy's first Christmas with Grandpa, Nana, Auntie Jen, Uncle Scott, cousin Beck, Aunt Margaret, Uncle Den, and Auntie Shannon. Lucy and Beck had fun playing together and watching all of the adults take pictures of them.

Lucy got her first note from Santa Claus, and ever since has been motoring around the house on her new scooter bike.

Lucy made her first batch of Christmas cookies with Mommie and Nana yesterday. They made lemon flavored cookies with lots of frosting (yum).

Cutting a Christmas Tree

We cut our Christmas tree last weekend. Lucy, Beck, and Alita all had fun marching around in the woods, picking out the perfect trees.

Lucy had never seen so many trees

Thanksgiving 2008

Thankful to be with family on Thanksgiving!

Having fun with Auntie Elisa

Auntie Elisa makes up fun songs and dances around the house. She's cool!

Lucy and Nonno picking out pastries

Turns out Lucy really likes authentic Italian pastries! Nonno took us to a yummy pastry shop and we picked out cookies and pies for Thanksgiving.

Cousins at the Science Museum

Lucy went to visit her cousins last week and Uncle Noah took us all to the Science Museum. We had fun crawling around inside the space shuttle and checking out the dinosaur bones.

Lucy at the Park

Lucy learned to crawl. She motors all over the house now, and even tries to pull herself up to standing. Now that she's mobile, she likes the local park even more. This week she crawled through the tunnels and tried a few of the slides.

Cold Weather Camping

We spent a long weekend in Yosemite National Park this month. It's nice to visit Yosemite in the fall after the summer crowds have cleared out, but it's COLD. We camped at elevation and the temp dropped each night. We bundled Lucy up and she had a good time watching the bonfire and playing with Baby Teo and Baby Reed.

Here's Lucy in her full snow suit and fuzzy hat. She couldn't figure out how to suck her thumb with mittens on!
Lucy loves tents, especially ones with little strings that hang from the ceiling:

We also hiked partway up Yosemite Falls trail:

Lucy fell fast asleep on the way down:

Hardly Strictly Bluegrass

Lucy enjoyed her first outdoor music festival, called Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, in Golden Gate Park. We met up with friends and had a nice picnic while listening to Earl Scruggs.

Camping in Bodega Bay

My mom and dad took me camping again - this time on the Sonoma Coast with 4 other babies. We sang happy birthday to Molly and Liz. I liked sleeping in our tent!

Lucy likes to bounce and laugh with Nana.

My Nonno!

My Nonno came out to visit me. He's fun and goofy and brought me to my first winery.

This is us on the coast at Half Moon Bay

Nonno and I have similar hats


Grandpa Visits

I Love Mom

Feed the Fishies

Every morning Lucy and Dad go out and feed the goldfish in our yard. Lucy likes to splash in the water.

Lucy's Friend Rosa

Lucy shared a nanny with Rosa for the month of August. Rosa lives in Madrid and her mom was in town working at NASA. Lucy and Rosa had a great time together - we'll miss Rosa.

Lucy is getting more adventurous at the playground. She likes the swing now.
