We finally got around the getting a Christmas tree a little over a week ago. Here are some pictures of Caty helping decorate the tree. She was so excited and we had a great time!
Caty got a little help from Daddy so she could get the angel on the top of the tree
This is how the angel ended up! :)

Opening an early Christmas present from Great Aunt Barbara and Great Uncle Bill
Barbara made ornaments for each of the girls. Caty got some Christmas stampers and Hanna got a pair of reindeer socks.
We traveled down to the Bay Area for my cousin Greg’s annual Christmas party. It was great seeing our family that we don’t see very often. We got to see my cousin Jon, his wife Natalia and their daughter Ella who is just 5 months older than Hanna – yes, lots of babies in our family this year. We have another cousin (Brooklin and Jon) who also had a baby, a month after Hanna – told you we’ve expanded quite a bit! Anyways back to the party. We had seen Ella back in May at my Uncle Barry’s service, but this was under much better circumstances and she just loved Caitlyn. They live in Southern Ca, so we don’t see much of them, although we sure wished that we did. Unfortunately Caitlyn hadn’t been feeling great and during the party she was struck with a fever. We drove a little over an hour to get there and only ended up staying for maybe 2 hours, then drove home. By the time we got home, her fever was around 102 – poor thing! She’s still fighting the cough, which unfortunately Hanna has caught. AHH!! Enjoy the pictures from the party.
Hanna propped up and checking out her shoe – she loves to eat them
