This was obviously Rebecca's first Christmas and I think she enjoyed it pretty well. She actually took an interest in the presents and helped unwrap a few. She especially loves her new toys that talk and play songs.

Do I need to apologize for not including pictures of our child this week? I am sure many of you log on just to see Rebecca and not see the exciting happenings on the farm. Christmas pictures will be posted someday. Stay tuned.

That pretty much sums up the last two days. Monday into Tuesday we had an ice storm. Dan stayed home from work on Tues. and we stayed huddled inside trying to stay warm - literally. We lost power for nearly 12 hours. Rebecca didn't seem to notice much, but she did seem a little more cranky at night - probably confused by it being dark at 5pm and by all the candles all over the house. The roads weren't too bad by 6pm so we decided to leave the cold house and go out to eat and do a little shopping. Just after we got back home, around 9:00 pm, the power came back on. I was so thankful because I was not looking forward to trying to sleep with Rebecca in our bed. Hope this finds all of you warm as well.

For Thanksgiving we traveled to Orange City to be with my family. It was the first time since last Christmas that we had all been together. Rachel was home from Nicaragua and finally got to meet Rebecca.
Whenever my family gets together we like to take a family picture - it's great to see the new additions year after year!
Since this was Rebecca's first Thanksgiving we thought we would have a little fun. Here she is with my mom's 19 pound turkey. Rebecca is only tipping the scales at 14 pounds.
