Train Ride with Santa

We took a train ride with Santa this past weekend with some of our friends. Montana was skeptical of St. Nick but she did give him a half hug with the other arm wrapped tightly around my neck! Sidenote: We have read The Cajun Night Before Christmas MANY times over the past few weeks and Montana wanted to know where Santa's alligators were...our Alabama friends got a kick out of our cajun daughter's question! The kids wore their Christmas pjs and they all were adorable. Whit(in the red-striped pjs) was so cute as he joyfully listed to Santa what he wanted for Christmas...Enjoying the ride(the very slow ride)

Kinda fuzzy but here is the half hug:)

Sad Reindeer?

Well, this was supposed to be cute pic of the girls in their reindeer/Christmas clothes, but it didn't go over so well. Montana had just been told to stop pushing on Sage's head by Blake and I and she obviously thought it was the end of the world. I thought it would make a funny picture and it certainly did! Little rascal also wanted to see herself crying in the picture after I took it.Sage has had a pretty monumental week...she has discovered her tongue and her hands as you'll see in the pics below. She also has given us a full night's rest for a little over a week now! In my opinion she is what many people call a "good baby" and a perfect addition to our family:).

The girls and I had a wonderful Thanksgiving at my parent's house, but much to my dismay, Blake had to work in Bham. However, we both have so very much to be thankful for...two precious girls, Blake's job, daily provisions, etc...but we are especially grateful for the grace of our Saviour! Sage got to meet her great grandparents and several great aunts and uncles so she received a lot of lovin'! Montana loved playing with her cousins and it was such a joy to spend time with family and friends. We had a play date with some nola buddies at the Children's Museum, ate some good ole nawlins food, and visited FBNO which was such a special time for us all!

The cousins wanted Sage to join in the fun
