We have had such an amazing week! We spent a few days at Granny and Grandpa's house hanging out and getting ready for the trip to the beach. We did go and spend some time with good friends of our Great-Granny and Great-Grandpa, too. Then the fun really began when we went to the beach house. Daddy, Aunt Kristen, and Uncle Michael all arrived on airplanes and we came out to the beach. We are all staying in the same house, playing and spending time together. It's wonderful!!! Yesterday was Christmas Day and we had such a fun day! Everyone gave us toys and other presents that were wrapped in pretty paper and boxes. At first we really liked the paper and boxes, but now that they're gone, we are enjoying playing with the new toys. We are also really enjoying all our family. Unfortunately, Granny has been sick so we haven't been able to spend much time with her but we are hoping she gets better real soon. Also, Mommy cannot seem to get the pictures to upload from the beach so you are going to have to look at them through Snapfish by clicking here. Once she gets back to Granny and Grandpa's house she will try again to put some pictures in the blog. Enjoy the pictures and we will see you soon!

So we had a busy week getting ready to make our trip to Florida. Before that, though, we went with Emily and Frankie (and their mommy) to Imagine It museum. GAMA gave us a whole year's worth of visits to this place and we know it will be a lot of fun to explore. Granny came to town towards the end of the week to help us get ready and also to help Mommy on the trip down. One great thing about her coming is that she got to come to music class and help out. The pictures are a little disorganized but we figured you'd rather have them out of order than for us to just leave them out :) We are now in Pensacola and are doing great. On our first day here, Garet climbed all the way to the top of the stairs (being closely watched, of course!) Kitt even climbed the one stair out of the family room and then turned around and went back down using her head to brace herself. We have both gotten very good at waving "bye-bye" but Kitt is especially good at it. Today Mommy was walking up the stairs saying bye-bye to Garet. When she got to Kitt's room, Kitt was sitting up in her bed waving since she heard Mommy saying it coming up the stairs. We also got to experience our first fire in a fireplace. Of course, no one let us get close but we were interested in it. The picture of us in the rocking chairs is at the Cracker Barrel. Kitt was rocking to the music being played overhead and as you can see, it looks like Garet was trying to escape from the house! We are looking forward to this week and all the family we will get to see. We will even get to meet our Uncle Michael for the first time and we will get to see Daddy again soon, too!

What a week it has been! It was still cold outside so we didn't do a whole lot of going out but we did get out some. At least it was not raining! One night we went looking at Christmas lights in the neighborhood. It was so cold though!!!! There are also a couple of pictures from music class at the top. As you can see we met Santa Claus for the first time today. Kitt was a little worried at first but warmed up to him once she decided she liked his beard. Garet, on the other hand, did not like that man one little bit!!! Mommy made a video of us as elves which you can check out here. We were also busy this week helping celebrate two special birthdays: Aunt Kristen and GAMA. On Friday we met a new friend, Alex. He and his mommy are at home during the days, too, so Mommy invited them over to play. He is just five days older than us but a LOT bigger! We seemed to like him just fine but when he gets excited he squeals which Garet did not like too much. We know you are probably wondering why Mommy is posting this on Saturday but she is going to be in Macon tomorrow helping take care of our new friend Parker while Aunt LeAnn gets better. We probably won't see her at all tomorrow but we know Daddy will take great care of us.

It has been so cold this week that Mommy has not really wanted to leave the house much! Monday and Tuesday were not only cold but they were also rainy. Once the rain went away, the cold stayed so we did some things but didn't go on as many walks as we are used to. One major highlight of the week was we had our first music class yesterday. Mommy and Daddy forgot the camera but next week they will take some pictures. The teacher, Miss Berne, asked if anyone wanted to strum the guitar so this big boy ran up and strummed it. Not even two seconds later Kitt crawled up to strum it!!! Miss Berne helped her but Kitt really seemed to know what she was doing. Also yesterday, Daddy had a big football game to watch (War Eagle, he says) so Mommy took us to IKEA with Emily, Frankie and their mommy. Mommy was feeding Kitt and looked over to see that Garet had taken a piece of broccoli off of Emily's plate and sure was enjoying it! We also discovered that Kitt is allergic to eggs, but she seems to be doing better now that we've figured that out. We just have a few things scheduled for this week but we're sure it will be another fun one. Enjoy a few videos below in addition to the pictures!
