Candy Stripers

Getting their money's worth out of their Christmas pajamas. And Tate's ball popper - a source of great contention in our household.

All Aboard!

The San Francisco Zoo is celebrating the season with a Nutcracker train! West and Tate took full advantage. Good thing Santa brought them matching conductor hats. Choo choo!

Ready, Set, Scoot!

Grandma and Grandpa Grandpa sent Tate a cherry-red scooter for Christmas and he has pretty much refused to get off of it ever since. Seriously, we have to hide it in the closet. He hasn't quite gotten the hang of it yet - or maybe he has but prefers to manipulate us into pushing him all over Golden Gate Park. Either way, he looks awfully pleased with himself, wouldn't you say? Thankfully, he's a stickler for wearing his helmet - safety first!

Dapper Duo

We all headed over to a generous friend's home for Christmas Dinner, which meant dressing up for this special occasion. Enter the sweater vest-ments! The kiddos looked quite polished in their holiday best (with new shoes to boot!) and I couldn't resist stopping for a few quick snaps of them in their Christmas attire. They insisted on posing with two of their favorite gifts from Santa - a baby fox and a kitty cat of Tate's very own, originally named Bianca but now she goes by Blanche. ;-)

Branching Out

Much to our dismay, West loves to climb on this woodpile in the park. Even warnings about spiders fail to deter him, whcih leaves us with nothing to do other than capture everything on film.
