Cabin Christmas

Christmas at the cabin is the best! There was TONS of snow, but it wasn't great snow ... and I had a black eye to prove it! So we did my favorite cabin activity: played games and ate food. Jason gave me The Hunger Games series for Christmas, and thanks to many hands to hold Norah, I was able to finish the whole series in three days. Best gift ever. Norah got a lot of books too, but she seems to think they're for eating, not reading. Silly girl. Jason got a pocket video camera to capture special moments, and if you're his facebook friend check out the video of him dancing he posted. You can thank me later :)

And now, in no particular order other than the one blogger chose to upload them, our pictures of Christmas 2010:

Toes, Ears, Nose ... mouth.

Jason's main gift, a video camera

The gifts for all 9 of us probably took up Santa's whole sleigh

Norah was pretty upset to be left out of the matching pj crew

Norah loves her new Aunt Stacy!

Baby's first Christmas ...

A darling onesie from my friend Linne, that Norah promptly puked on hours after getting dressed

So big!

This is Norah

Norah can sit!
Sometimes she tumbles over ...

But she doesn't mind!

Just as long as Mommy picks her up quick!

Norah's first food

For the longest time, Norah has been SO aware of food, mostly aware of the fact that she wasn't getting any. Jason and I weren't too keen on the idea of starting her on single grain white rice cereal, so we skipped right to the good stuff. The plan was to wait until Christmas and as the best gift ever feed Norah sweet potatoes (festive, eh?). But last night, she made it very clear that she was more than ready. My plan is to make her baby food, so I started up the oven and cooked her some sweet potatoes. Using this Web site as a guide, we fed Norah her first big people food!

She was in heaven :)
