My first tree!

This week Mairead helped to decorate her first Christmas tree. She loves the lights and tries to grab all the ornaments. She really had a good time! We had some extra time to decorate because we were snowbound due to the 11 inches of snow we had!

Christmas Tree and Snow!

This past week was definitely a busy one! After Monaghan family tree decorating we still had our own tree at home to decorate. First, we had to go out and choose one for Mairead's first Christmas. She liked tree shopping-- I think she liked to be outside and she loves going places. Her dad took this picture of Mairead and her mom while we were looking at trees.

This week also brought the first real snowstorm of Mairead's life. She is too little to play out in the snow so the only part of it she saw was in the car for our 2 and half hour drive home from Brockton (usually 25 minutes). She was so good though, and didn't complain about it at all! Luckily, we all made it home safely in what people were saying was the worst commute since the Blizzard of '78. If you want to know anything about that blizzard, ask my nana, she'll tell you. Anyway, we don't have pictures of Mairead in the snow, but I do have one of the house... it definitely looks a lot better than it did last winter! Dave did a great job of putting up the lights and wreaths. We will post indoor Christmas pictures soon!

My new jumper

Grandma gave Mairead a jumper that used to belong to Rachael, and Mairead loves it! She has figured out how to use her feet to hold herself up and to bounce around in it. Thanks, Grandma! Also, if you click on 'comments' at the bottom of each post, you can leave us your messages if you like. We'd love to hear from you!
