Thanksgiving Snow

We traveled to Marshfield, MO today to have lunch with my mom's side of the family. It started snowing right as we got there so we went out later to throw snow at each other. Carissa played until her fingers hurt too much.

Carissa has learned some of the finer things of life from her mom. She loves to play with her beads while Christina creates some of her own jewelry. It's pretty amazing to watch a 2 year-old thread beads on a small wire, all by herself.

Making Friends

Christina had an open house at school this evening and Carissa and I stopped by. She quickly made friends with one of Christina's coworker's little boy. She would dance around in front of him and then decided to crawl just like he was. He, of course, was enamored with her the whole time.

Welcome Bella

We have a new dog named Bella. She is about five pounds and a year old. Carissa is absolutely in love with her. More pictures to come later.

Smokey Sunset

Those aren't clouds in the sky. That's smoke coming from a wildfire at Fort Leonard Wood. Earlier this morning the haze across town made me think I was in L.A.
