The Oldacre Christmas Tree Adventure

Nov. 2008 at the Care Group Leader Couples Retreat
Dining at Club LeConte


London, 14 months old

The start of our Christmas Tree Adventure.
We decided that we would look for our tree at the Christmas tree farm we went to two years ago. It is so much fun; you get to cut down your own tree. However, this year, we noticed they had raised the prices significantly. (Check out the scrawny tree on the right-- $40!).
So we stayed long enough for London to have her first candy cane (which she thoroughly and sloppily enjoyed)!

And we found our perfect tree in Fountain City. Here London guards our tree.

My friend Joslynn came into town and I got to have breakfast with her.

Truth be told...

So truth be told, I just don't take that many pictures anymore! Some of these are almost a month old. The one above is London in her big girl car seat.
Looking at baby pictures with Daddy. (she loves her baby and holds her a lot)
Coloring a picture and praising God at the same time! (she totally picked up this "praise God!" thing on her own after being in worship with me maybe one time!)
We put the markers away until after she's a bit older.
Her top two favorite toys are her baby and this house that she got from Mommy & Daddy for her birthday.

Last month we went to an open gym time for toddlers with our friends Eadie Cate and Laura. I took this picture because I couldn't believe how far London had crawled away from me (very unlike her!). She had lots of fun.

While playing with Nora at her house, London asked to swing. I didn't think her passion for swings included baby swings, but apparently it does! Here is Nora giving her friend a push.
London had her first "injury" last month. A little boy at a Mother Goose playtime, bit her on the forehead. It looked really bad the first couple of days and then the bite marks scarred up. Within three weeks it had healed completely. This picture was taken about 3 hours after the incident.
Reading "Lullaby Little One" with Daddy.
