Santa's Visit to Pine Island NY

The kids had a big time visiting with Santa at the Pine Island NY firehouse last Christmas. Pine Island is the little community here where Spencer and Kent attend Elementary School.

Wonderful visit to Museum of Natural History with Granny Reba...and a very quick walk in Central Park!

A Little Talk with Santa

Well, it seems that her little talk with Santa worked out okay for her. She (and her brothers) made out like bandits for Christmas!

Snow Days...

December in Warwick has been really cold already! Last week we got down to 8 degrees. Very cold for us southern transplants. Anna has been playing in the snow a little bit. Mostly walking around and trying to get her footing. She's so tiny that even with just a little snow, it is up to her knees!!

October in New York State

Autumn in New York State is wonderful! Apple picking, raspberry picking and corn mazes. Lots of fun.

Anna's School Portrait - October 2009

Anna's school picture at Warwick Day Care Center in October 2009. In the past year, she has definitely gotten the hang of smiling for the camera (can't imagine why)!

"Gotcha Day" - Our One Year Anniversary

For our 1 year anniversary of Anna coming into our family - Nov 1, 2009 - we went to the Statue of Liberty. We thought that was a fitting reminder of the freedom that we have being born as Americans and for Anna now that she is an American. It was a tremendous to see the kids' reaction to that big ole' Lady Liberty!

We had to make it a "complete American" experience by allowing the kids to have McDonalds on the way to the Statue of Liberty!
