It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas…


We were excited to go to the second annual Holidays at Hadlock since we had so much fun last year. 

Kaitlyn is still scared of Slugger, but at least she was willing to be in the picture this time.Imported Photos 03993

She was terrified Slugger was going to come walking around the corner at any moment…Imported Photos 03996

Best naughty and nice list ever!  Of course, this list needs to be updated to add Kevin Youkilis to the naughty list.  It never turns out well for Sox players to sign with the Yankees… just ask Johnny Damon!Imported Photos 03997

Santa’s helicopter flight got grounded due to snow so he hitched a ride with Portland’s bravest…Imported Photos 03998

The next day, our church had an advent wreath making event with other crafts for the kids.Imported Photos 04004Imported Photos 04006

While I was working on the wreath, Kaitlyn decorated a cookie with Daddy’s help…Imported Photos 04005

The other night we also went out to greet the Wreaths Across America convoy as it stopped in Scarborough for the night.   We got there a bit early so Kaitlyn got to see the ladder trucks getting ready.Imported Photos 04016Imported Photos 04019Imported Photos 04020Imported Photos 04021Imported Photos 04023

Kaitlyn’s 4 Year Check Up

Kaitlyn’s 4 year check-up at the doctor’s went well.  She is doing great!  She is now 42 inches and 43 pounds (90th percentile for her height and weight).  She ended up with a shot in each arm, but my future hockey player barely flinched.  No tears, just whispered “mommy that hurt!”.

Kaitlyn requested a fire truck cake this year.  I only hope that some day she appreciates how much time and effort goes into one of her birthday cakes.Imported Photos 03976Imported Photos 03977Imported Photos 03978Imported Photos 03979Imported Photos 03981Imported Photos 03982
