Let it snow

Last week I woke up to big beautiful flakes falling from the sky. I love the snow! I woke up my hubby to tell him. He was just as excited as I was- oh how I love him :) I couldn't wait to show Tinsley. Other than the few seconds we took her out to let her catch some flakes, we spent most of the morning looking out of the window and making dozens of sugar cookies. It started covering the ground but not enough to take her sledding down the small hill by our home- dang it. Oh well, maybe next time :)

Sign language and Santa

I've been teaching Tinsley sign language. She knows quite a bit and it has really helped. She's even been signing in sentences lately. For example, she'll say "Mommy" and then sign the words "please drink juice" It's pretty cute :)
We recently took Tinsley to meet Santa. As soon as it was our turn I tried to hand her to him. I knew she wouldn't go for it but I thought I'd give it a try. She started crying immediately so I took her back and sat her on my lap.
When our turn was over I asked her, "Tinsley did you see Santa?"
She nodded her head.
"Wow! You did see Santa?"
She nods again
"That's so cool! Do you like Santa?"
More nodding.
I then asked her, "Do you want to go sit with Santa again?"
She immediately put her hands in the air and did the "all done" sign.
David and I had a good laugh :)

See how thrilled she was to meet him? HA!

I love this picture of her sweet little face after she left Santa and was safe in the arms of the one man she trusts :)
