"You don't need this seat anymore. You are a big girl."
"I am a big girl?" she asked incredulously.
"Yep. You're getting big."
With a sudden intake of her breath she exclaimed, "Now I can shave!"

Cutting out cookies with Daddy. . .
Playing the "Nap Game" -- Lily tells us to take a nap, "reads" to us, pats our back, etc. (Her new favorite -- and ours!)

Here is a snippet from Lily's first Christmas Program. The boy next to her is her best bud at school. (Mike likes how he holds the baby doll like a football.) Believe it or not, there was an even younger group that performed. The teachers at her daycare are wonderful and we feel blessed to have her in such a loving, Christian atmosphere.
Mike and I got an evening out for Christmas shopping (and came home with nothing!) and Lily got some quality time with Grandpa and Grandma.
Per his usual, Grandpa was teasing her while we were strolling around Target. He would repeat what she was saying with a "w" in place of an "r." Finally she'd had enough and sternly said, "Don't use that voice, Grandpa." She is learning to handle the men in her life that can't help but tease her.
These are a bit old, but here are some fun pics from our Thanksgiving at a hotel. She couldn't get enough of the pools or her cousins, especially Mina. (Can't wait to have you closer E and B!)

I will start by sharing a funny Lily story from this morning. Lily's daycare group was singing at the church service this morning. (Her daycare is housed in a Luthern church near our house.) On the way there, Mike said, "What about the camera?"
Realizing we forgot it, I said, "Oh my gosh!" a phrase that we have discouraged Lily from using.
I hear a sweet voice from the back seat say, "We don't say that, Mommy. We say, 'Oh goodness.'"
