Longwood Gardens

In a flurry of powdery snow, we stepped into Longwood Gardens, an explosion of Christmassy greenery and the perfect welcome to the holiday season.


Luckily inside the greenhouse it was deliciously warm and cozy.








And obviously we had to check out America's 2014 bathroom of the year...

Return of the Santa Mouse

First, our annual family Thanksgiving photo!  It's getting more difficult to wrangle the whole clan, but Snape barely even dug his claws in this year!


And now...time for Christmas!!! :)






When I was a kid I could NOT WAIT for us to bring down all of our Christmas boxes from storage.  Not only were our ornaments and decorations in there, but boxes full of Christmas books and toys, made even more special by the fact that we only got them for about a month every year.  SO, of course, the tradition that really kicks off the holiday season for me now... bringing back Santa Mouse, the grossest, crustiest cat chew toy you can imagine.  But Snape just loves him (maybe because he only gets to slobber on him for one month of the year?).  Santa Mouse, going on 5 years now...


Though both cats and baby are willing to share toys for now, I think we'll need to acquire some Christmas human toys soon.

Baby Lately

Three months old, and this kid is getting more fun every day.  We've been trying to spend as much time in the park as possible while it's still warm out, picnicking, hanging out with baby friends, taking selfies...



Of course, with all this outdoor time we've got to make sure his head stays warm (pretty much any excuse to dress him up in super cute hats and hoodies).



Unfortunately the little guy did sleep through his first pumpkin patch outing.


But in his defense, those neckercises are tiring!
