How will ring in this New Year? Do you make resolutions? I resolve to have more pants on the ground this year. Brandon resolves to finally prove the existence of Sasquatch.
Sofie resolves to read the newspaper each day to keep up with current events...
We wish you all a safe, festive New Year's Eve...and lots of love, laughter and happiness in the year ahead!

We tracked Santa's progress on Christmas Eve
Star of the show was the kitchen she has been asking for for months...
Stocking full of goodies
Instruments to make music
What's hiding back here...?
After she opened each present she would throw the wrapping in the air and say "surprise!"
Thanks to everyone for the lovely gifts...it was a great first Christmas for this little girl!

It was not easy getting these three to sit still for some photos...but we managed to get a few.
Kim - it was so great meeting you and spending time with you. Your daughters are really amazing. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

We decorated the house a bit and let Sofie decorate a little fake (gasp! no offense fake tree lovers...I grew up on a ranch with live Christmas trees and this is THE first fake tree I have had...ever) tree we got for her...
Spending time with our friend Rudolph and reading lots of Christmas books...
We won't be traveling for the holidays this year, so will spend Christmas here in Yountville...just the three of us. How about you? How will you be spending the holidays this year?

We ran in to Santa over the weekend while out on our daily walk through town. After about 10 minutes of negotiating and watching the other kids climb on to his lap, we were here. It is blurry because she would not sit still...notice how she is not looking at him!
Then we followed him around for about 15 minutes, watching him take photos and chat with others and she ended up here...still wouldn't look...
Telling Santa what she wanted for Christmas...
Decided he was okay and she would show him her "jingle bell"...
Soon they were pals...
And we ended here...
We hope you had a great weekend!

The sun came out this morning and so did we. We weren't the only ones enjoying to beautiful day...
The cows were nibbling on the fresh green grass
The birds were enjoying a little bath...
And about 1000 slugs were out to soak up some sun...Sofie was catching it all on film
A few of the other lovely scenes from our walk...
We hope you have a great weekend!
