Carving the Turkey with lots of help.
Mommy, Daddy and Bekah

My cousin Michelle.

Bekah enjoys her first icecream from the icecream truck.

A "riding" lawnmower!

Reading with Nana.

Papa pulls Bekah in her new wagon.

A turkey just as big as Bekah.

Our new tenants and friends, Elyse and baby Chase.

We spent the day after Thanksgiving decorating for Christmas. Chris and my dad put up all the lights. I directed a bit. Don't they look so pretty.

The snowman was an early Christmas present from Elyse, Alex and Chase. We love it!

Our Christmas Tree

Each year our family looks forward to the Christmas Tree Farm. We grab a cart and a sharp saw and walk all over the farm looking for the perfect tree. Here is the tree we found! Isn't it pretty.

Seeing the sights with daddy.

Bekah is all ready for a hay ride.

This year the tractor didn't break down and we had a fun time riding around the farm.

Papa Karl and Nana Laurie had lots of fun with Bekah. They came here to visit over the Thanksgiving weekend and enjoyed coming to the Christmas Tree Farm with us.

Exploring is so fun.

Just Playing

Aunt Jennifer took some pictures of Bekah playing in the nursery during Bible study. She really likes this toy. That week I was told when Bekah walked into the nursery she went and sat on a rocking horse backwards. She sat there for 45 min. and would just point to everything she wanted. Stephanie and Melissa were so kind and brought all she pointed too. What are we creating? :O)

Bekah The Gymnast

Bekah loves to push the envelope of her abilities. After learning that she could climb down stairs backwards she decides that she wants to head down the way every one else would. The results were quite funny to Sarah and I. No toddlers were harmed in the making of this video.

Bekah feeds Karl

Bekah just loves to share. Papa Karl found this out first hand as she shared her breakfast with him over and over.

Climbing and Moving!

Bekah loves to climb up on the stool all by herself. Here she is trying to climb onto the counter. How frustrating it is to have such short legs.

Bekah is now one year old and is full of mischief. Just the other day I turned around and she was up on top of the stool reaching into the sink. She crawls up there all the time now.

I tried to keep her off of the stool and so tried to turn it on the side and even upside down. She just kept climbing in it and on it. I now just let her climb up and see what I'm doing. She has fell off of it once but she is doing well.

I'm so cute!!!!

Cheerleader Baby!!

Bekah is our cute little cheerleader. She enjoyed playing in the front yard. One of her favorite things to do is take handfuls of dirt or bark and sprinkle it all over. Here she is trying to empty one of our flower pots.

Uncle Kevin let Bekah play with his hat. She enjoyed putting it on his head and on hers.

Daddy's little 49er cheerleader!!
