Decorating for Christmas!

Black Friday (or the day after Thanksgiving) has become a holiday in its own right around here in the Peterson household. This year, we woke Alice (a rare experience - usually it works the other way around!) very early in the morning and we went shopping until about 10:00am. Then, we came home and decorated the house for Christmas!

Here are some photos of the decorating festivities:

Do you think this tiny stocking from last year will fit?  Maybe not...

Good thing Alice has a full sized stocking!

Alice was very curious and helpful when it was time to set up the Christmas tree.

She enjoyed showing Rosie all of her hard work!
Now that the decorations are up, it's time to get excited for Christmas!  Here are some additional photos from the day.  Enjoy!

Happy Thanksgiving!

We hope that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We had lots of fun visiting with family down in Middleboro.  We took the chance to dress up and try to get some nice family photos.

Alice has really started to have lots of fun at Grammie and Grampie's house - and has even had a few sleepovers there recently.  Here she is on the rocking horse with Grammie and Grampie's doll, Bobby!

And here she is, enjoying her Thanksgiving dinner.

Here are the rest of the photos from Thanksgiving day. Enjoy!

Mini-Vacation - CocoKey!

Daddy and Mommy took a couple of days off from work before Thanksgiving and we took a mini family vacation up to a fun indoor waterpark called CocoKey.  It was fun to get away, stay in a hotel for the night and splash around in the water!

Grammie and Grampie even joined us for a few hours on the first evening!

Alice loved floating in the lazy river, playing in all of the water features in all of the different pools.  Mommy, Daddy, Grammie and Grampie took turns going down the waterslides and Alice even put on a lifejacket and took a couple of turns down the kiddy waterslides!

Our little fish loved the trip, of course!
The night in the hotel, Mommy and Daddy had to hide out in the hotel room bathroom until Alice fell asleep (which truly took about 2 minutes!).  Daddy found a "comfortable" way to pass the time!

We also had fun eating out at a local restaurant for dinner, and hitting up Denny's for breakfast in the morning.  As busy as we have been, it was great to get away, even if it was a 36 hour trip!  Here are some more photos of the fun!

Just Like Mommy and Daddy

It has been a very busy, but fun, couple of months.  Alice has had a great time getting ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas - we are excited to update you about all of her adventures.

She is especially having fun helping out Mommy and Daddy around the house.  Along with helping out, she loves playing dress up whenever she can.  Here are some photos of Alice dressing up, just like Mommy and Daddy:

Here are some more photos we captured of Alice, acting all grown up!

Monkeying Around

Alice spends lots of time these days with her favorite stuffed animal - her monkey, Rosie.  Alice is such a little monkey herself, that it makes sense that Rosie is her best friends.  Here are a few photos of Alice, monkeying around the house!

Here are some more recent photos of our little monkey, Alice!
