Cora really enjoyed Christmas Morning!!! A month ago she had no interest in her birthday presents, but today she really like ripping open her gifts. She especially liked her shopping cart, piano, and of course her books. Thanks everyone, and MERRY CHRISTMAS.

Christmas Eve is Exciting!

Cora in her Christmas pajamas!
Stop taking pictures of me with the flash!

Cora is looking at the "big tree," which is far more interesting than the presents beneath it.




Our Christmas tree is ready for the big day.

Santa's Little Elf









Chris took Cora Christmas shopping yesterday for some last minute gifts - she was his little elf helper (and dressed the part).
A shout out to Laura: Cora LOVES her hippo. She carries him everywhere she goes and gives him great big "huuuugggggss."

Cora's First Christmas Program






Okay, so the photos stink...but we hope to put up a short video soon - stay tuned. Cora is hidden in these photos. She is all the way on the right side in the back row. The theme of the program was the "Polar Express" where each classroom picked a song from a different country to sing. Cora's class sang the Australian Jingle Bells, wearing their best summer wear of course. She did great!

Holiday Lights at the Zoo





We went to see the holiday lights at the zoo a few weeks ago and Cora had her first experience with Santa! It was a hesitant relationship. :)

Autumn Leaves, A Perfect Sunday






















Today we went to Fort Mountain State Park near Chatsworth, Georgia to see the autumn leaves and take a nice hike. Cora wanted to walk for most of the hike and would rather walk on top of the rocks instead of taking a nice path around...very adventurous. She had a great time pointing out all of the "puppies" on the trail. There were a ton of people with their dogs. We had amazing weather and ate lunch at a mom and pop diner in Chatsworth.
