Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to all! We celebrated the holiday this year with cousin Beck, Auntie Jen and Uncle Scott, Nana and Papa, and Scott's parents Go-Go and Franny.

Santa and the elves were very thoughtful

Lucy had almost as much fun handing out gifts as opening them

Beck was happy to see us when we arrived at his house

Happy to be together

Papa too!

Thanks to Jen and Scott for hosting a great Christmas brunch!

Lucy finally got ready for bed by cozying up with her new sleeping bag and books

The Night Before Christmas

And all through the house, not a creature was stirring, except Lucy, who had fun reading books with her Mom and Grandfather, and then writing a note with Dad to Santa Claus.

Cutting Our Christmas Tree

Lucy helped pick the perfect Christmas tree yesterday. She enjoyed running around the tree farm with cousin Beck and her friend Alita. It was a beautiful, sunny day.

Thanksgiving 2009

We celebrated Thanksgiving at Uncle Noah and Auntie Elisa's house. It was great to be with family, and the turkey-fry was yummie!

Trip to Maine

We had a wonderful visit with Nonno, Jacob, Rachel, Auntie Elisa and Uncle Noah. Lucy helped pick out their Christmas trees, and especially enjoyed playing Simon Says!

Happy Birthday Nonno

Hiking the Fells with Cousin Rachel

Lucy helped Mommy and Auntie Elisa up the steep trail.

We found a great swing on the side of the lake.

The cousins enjoyed a snack, or two.

Lucy's First Haircut

Auntie Jen gave Lucy her first haircut, a beautiful bob. Thanks Auntie Jen!

Happy Halloween!

Lucy wasn't so sure about dressing up, but eventually she donned her chef's outfit and whisked up some Halloween fun.

Abracadabra! Daddy's a wizard!

Lucy and Big Pumpkins

Lucy had fun checking out the huge pumpkins, but ultimately picked a "little one" that she could carry around. We also got one to carve as a jack-o-lantern.

Visit with Nana and Papa

Nana and Papa came to California for a visit! We had fun at the lake at Foothills Park.

Lucy and Mom dipped their toes in the water at the edge of the dock.

Auntie Jen took Lucy out for her very first kayak ride. Lucy liked being at eye level with the ducks.

4th of July

We had a blast in Maine over the 4th of July. Lucy enjoyed lots of quality time with Nonno, Auntie Elisa, Uncle Noah, Rachel and Jacob. And of course, Gus, the cat.
