Our Christmas card this year was photographed by Crista Acosta, you may remember her work from our card last year. I wanted to share all of the beautiful photographs she took. We gave her a run for her money this year and after watching the video you'll see why.
The Energy Lab had so much for the girls to experience. Water tables, and tunnels, and plastic balls floating and flying everywhere... If you know anything about these girls, you'll know they aren't afraid to dive right in.
Our little scientist, complete with lab coat.
Yawn Dad...let us play already.
Yeah, that's what I am talking about. See we know how to work a water table.
This. Is. Awesome.
Do I have water on my face?
Amelia, I bet I can pick up more balls than you...
I'd like to go for a dip... think anyone would notice?
We spent the afternoon at a really cool children's museum in South Norwalk called Stepping Stones. It was during the week between Christmas and New Years so things were a little chaotic. Whenever we take the girls to environments like this, I've noticed that Emma will socialize with anyone while Amelia hangs back and does her own thing. On this occasion, Emma ran off to a fishing boat and made friends immediately, while Amelia froze in one place and wouldn't move. We were a bit concerned considering we drove an hour and a half to get there. After 10 mins of coaxing Amelia to play with all the fun things around us we realized the problem. Shoes and socks. As disgusting as it is (VOM)... we took off her shoes and socks and let her go barefoot. She was a completely different kid!
Thank you so much for being apart of our lives, for making us laugh, for teaching us new things, for our afternoon phone calls, and for giving us food that Mom won't normally let us have. We love you very much!!!
A special birthday appearance from Benjamin Button just for you!
They loathe socks. We find them discarded all around the house, in the car, and in their beds. It's a constant battle keeping them on and certainly makes things interesting this time of year... especially since they aren't too fond of shoes either.
