Hello Florida, sunshine, and family! We're too busy to really blog now, but we'll do it when we return to our life stuck indoors. Merry Christmas!

What did we do when stuck inside for such an extended amount of time? We made another video! We actually tried to cut down on the amount of pictures we're storing by deleting some unnecessary ones, but in doing so, we found some funny outtakes and silly faces and decided to put together a short video:

After watching just a few minutes of the parade, we hustled over to Macy's. We beat the line and enjoyed the fact that Nina was little enough that she didn't know that we had skipped a lot and was content to look at whatever was in front of us. Both Santa and his elf commented about her laid back attitude.
After all the fun of the parade, the display, and meeting Santa, downtown Minneapolis had one more treat for us. As we walked through the St. Thomas skyway, we stumbled across a magazine cover featuring our famous friend and one of Nina's favorite walking buddies, Adam. No Christmas celebration would be complete without him!

The Christmas season has started inside as well. Nina has been dancing to the seasonal tunes while watching decorations go up throughout the house. She and Kara trimmed the tree and Nina once attempted to pull it down.

Carly was funny, as always ----- Amy had the knack; she'll be a good Aunt & soon
Nina also got to meet Jake's puppy, Nelli. She was reminded of her other "cousin" Gus who's a bit bigger and more mature. Nina watched Nelli with extreme interest and liked petting her.

She had a wonderful time at her first Thanksgiving meal. Many thanks to Susan and John for their warm hospitality. The meal was fantastic and a fun time was had by all. Nina is excited to meet her newest second cousin next month & sends best wishes to Ashley & Matt.

Below are some photos from the successful Turkey Bingo night, courtesy of Julie Ann Williams. Thanks JA! You can see Lucy and Nina leaning on their prize turkeys, while Everett holds tightly to his dobber that saw plenty of use. Please pray for safe travels for us as we try to head to Nebraska on Wednesday, hopefully we can beat the blizzard!

Nina has been babbling a lot lately, especially at night. Apparently she likes giving herself a bedtime story. Here's a video showcasing her latest chats.
The photos and movies are piling up, and, as a result, we've needed to get an external hard drive. Can you tell she's our first child?

The tooth is still cutting through and Nina is confused by some her new teething toys. She's had more fun in her bumbo lately too, especially when she's worn out from her workouts in the johnny-jump-up. Thanks Jess!

Last blog post, we mentioned Nina might be getting teeth in the next month or so... well, it looks like we overestimated the time, as one of her bottom teeth is already starting to break through. AUGH, she's growing so quickly!

We received a few tips on how to help her ears adjust to the change in cabin pressure on the upcoming flights to and from our Florida Christmas vacation. She fussed when given the shots and then slept the vast majority of the evening.
Here's a video of Nina giggling a bit, and of her on the move. She also has a new trick that we're trying to get on tape for a future video. If you want to see a past video, we've created a movie library and a link is in the upper right.
Many thanks to all veterans, soldiers, service members and their families for such service and sacrifice.
