Nursery Girl

3 weeks ago my little baby started going to nursery. She's done really good. The first thing she said when I dropped her off was "TOYS!"
I hear some of the things they do in there are a little too big for her. They play with toys for the first hour and then they have singing time where they're supposed to sit on mats and do actions...yeah, that isn't happening quite yet. Then they have snack where she puts gummies in her mouth and spits them out and dumps her water cup over. Then they have ring around the rosie where she will only go around the circle if she's holding two adults hands. There is no way she's holding onto another toddlers hand and walking around.
She is a funny girl. No tears so far. As long as the babies heads in the nursery don't fall off (they're hanging by threads) we should be in good shape. lol

Christmas and New Years in Canada!

After Christmas we packed and took a flight to Canada to see my family! Sierra did great on the flight. She was obsessed with the pamphlets, magazines, etc. in the seat pocket and even fell asleep in our laps which NEVER happens. It was so nice to spend the second half of the holiday's with my family, we are so lucky to live close enough to our families to always see both sides every year!

We always getting matching pajamas on christmas eve and wear them down christmas morning!

This was the 1st year that we had christmas at our house with our own tree and presents christmas morning. It was really nice and so fun with Sierra at this age.

We thought for sure she'd run right to the kitchen set, so it was pretty funny when she went straight to the wrapped up broom.
