Jingle Bells! Jingle Bells!

Life is crazy and hectic and wonderful here in Colorado. Linwood is really liking his new job where he gets to be a blessing to at-risk kids everyday. I am enjoying staying home with my girls, watching them grow and do new things everyday. India got a dancing Santa that she absolutely loves!!! (Must take after you Gram) She can watch him sing and dance for minutes at a time. Of course she tries to show him how to do her moves, both by example and trying to twist his body the way she thinks it should go. Jordyn is growing by leaps and bounds. They just don't stay little long. She is staying awake longer and is more alert. Ironically she's most calm when India is craziest, yelling and squealing in her face and grabbing at her. India is becoming quite the little Mommy. She feeds and burps her baby, wraps her in a blanket, carries her around by her leg, and tries to put clothes and diapers on her. We went to the Aquarium and had breakfast with Santa a few weeks ago. India liked Santa and his elves when they were swimming in the fish tank but she wasn't too sure in person. She might have stayed on his lap for 2 seconds:)
We love you all and miss you!

Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow!

The snow waited longer this year but it has finally begun. India put on her snowsuit and went out to play in it. Well kind of... she didn't know what to think. We look forward to taking her out again and going sledding with her. Nana Washington was here to visit this past week and spoiled the girls. They loved all of the extra visitors and attention they got.

India is getting to smart for her own good. This past weekend Linwood and I were in the kitchen. He was getting some eggnog and I asked him to only give it to India for a special treat because she hasn't wanted to drink her milk. India walked into the kitchen, pointed at me, and said "no." We laughed and laughed!!

Jordyn is growing, sleeping, and eating. She actually seems most at peace when the house is craziest (i.e. full of laughing, screaming, and all kinds of noise). We joke that this is her way of not feeling it when she gets squashed and pulled by her big sister.

Hope you all are doing well.
We Love You!
Linwood, Sara, India, and Jordyn
