Yesterday we all went out in the cold to get our Christmas tree. Last year we started our own little tradition of always getting the tree right after Thanksgiving instead of waiting a few weeks. We picked up a nice 6 foot fraser fir from Adams since the last 2 we got there lasted for months, even when it was left outside after Christmas. This year is going to be even better now that Arianna is fully aware of what is going on and can participate. So far she has only taken a few ornaments off, but thankfully she gives them back.
Arianna’s 2nd Birthday was on Sunday. It’s hard to believe that 2 years have gone by already. Looking back at last year’s party pictures it’s amazing to see the changes and how much she has grown. She no longer looks like a baby at all.
This year’s theme was Sofia the First, Arianna’s favorite show. Purple overload everywhere and crowns galore. I will have to say Jess and I did a pretty good job with the decorating. Arianna loved everything and looked so cute in her Sofia dress. Everyone had a great time!
This is the first Halloween we went trick-or-treating with Arianna. We dressed her up in her Tinkerbell costume from Disney that still fit! She did so well walking to all the houses and ringing the bell. Surprisingly she only walked into one person’s house. A few people with masks scared her, but thankfully there were many houses with puppies to distract her. All-in-all it was a great night. Now there is plenty of candy for Jess and I to eat.
