The tree

Layla 2011

This has been a year of change for my Layla girl.
She's becoming more and more independent every day.
You can do so much at 4 years old, yet still need a lot of help.
She can write her name beautifully.
Beginning to read well.
Has counted up to 100.
She is a great big sister to 2 little sisters.
Extremely imaginative, hilarious, sensitive, fun loving, stubborn, and sweet toothed.
Gets spooked pretty easily and has been known to visit time out often.
She can be your best, most sweet friend. 
But also knows how to pick on you without mercy.
We love our little beautiful Layla
and wouldn't change a thing about her.

We made it!

Okay, so this was in the midst of chaos, when we first got to our new house. 
Unpacking is such a chore, especially when you're trying to get ready for Christmas! 
Thankfully we have our little, dependable fake tree! 
(Yeah, we know we need new furniture...)

The girls have been so excited to be able to play outside, in December!
Some days you need a coat, but most days you don't really. 
(Today it was about 76 degrees out!)

Here's Layla showing me around our tiny yard. 
It's fenced in, that's all that matters to me!
We really do love it.
More pictures of the place to come.
