Ho Ho Ho!

On the way up to NJ on Wednesday, we stopped in Norfolk, VA to visit Santa (the real one, you might remember from Last Year) with some great friends. Gwyneth was a little hesitant at first, but Santa pulled out some jingle bells, and he and she quickly became friends. We love how the photos from this year and last year are nearly identical!

Lovely pictures, and how very grown-up she looks now! Did you ever imagine, two years ago, that this would be possible?

All the best to the three of you for Christmas and the New Year.

Hi Nate,
I tried to visit Tricia's website to see if she'd put up any recent blogs, but I couldn't get to it. Did she take it down, or does it have a new URL?

Love the pictures of Gwyneth looking at Santa. She has such a captivated expression.
