My Favorite Things

The girls received tons of wonderful gifts from family and friends over the holidays, and we appreciate and love every one.  Santa hooked them up with some toys too, of course.  Here are some of his choices that represent just what we hope our girls will be interested in as they grow up-- things that are fun, activity-oriented, and inspire creativity and imaginative thinking.  Yes, there were lots of pretty pink things under the tree too, but you know what I'm saying.  We hope that over time, our girls willbecome smart and active, confident, creative, and kind, all in one package.  Well, three packages.

She's smart, fun, and she's normal-bodied.  She's veterinarian doll, complete with cute (sick) puppy. 
There's nothing like a used pair of skates to get a girl psyched about being outside in Maine in the winter!
I don't know who was more psyched about putting this working clock together piece by piece- Addie or Daddy.  Either way, it is awesome, and it really does work.
More to come soon on our holiday, our travels to Virginia and beyond, and our jamming plans for the spring-- yep, I'm already in spring mode.  It'll be here before we know it!   


  1. Love the Dr. Doll! So much better than Barbie, the McDonalds employee! Let's aim high girls!

  2. OMG, I thought I was the only one who thought the McDonald's employee get-up was odd. Glad Jessica agrees! And I concur: Dr. Doll is much cooler!

  3. Abby is DYING to go skating-she got hand me downs too!
