The Blizzard of 2009

They started out the week claiming Friday would bring 6-12” of snow.  After the last 8” snowfall, we figured this would be more of the same.  WRONG!!!  Compare 10:00 p.m. vs 08:00 a.m in case you’ve never seen 2+ FEET of snow.

So here’s what the house looked like in the afternoon on Saturday.

We even made Fox News on Sunday morning for snowfall!

So, not only has Kaitlin experienced her first snowfall, but now she’s seen her first blizzard as well.  What a weekend!!!!

Here Comes Santa Claus!

Kaitlin has been hearing about Santa Claus for weeks now.  She has been so excited that she’s practically become the big guy’s #1 fan.

We finally decided to let her meet Santa.  I think Santa was happier to see Kaitlin than she was to see him.  Below is Santa getting HIS picture made with Kaitlin.

All kidding aside, she did pretty good and maybe she’ll be happier to see him next year.  Hopefully we’ll get more out of her than a Lane Kiffin like smirk.  I’ve included a picture below for comparison …

Rudolph & Red Bows

Kaitlin lovers her some Rudolph!  In fact, she even looks cute wearing reindeer.  Don’t you just love her baby UGGs?

Kaitlin got the biggest kick out of pulling the bow off her head & was so proud of herself.  She felt so accomplished that she didn’t mind Momma putting another bow on her head as long as she had her “trophy” in her hands.

Dancing with the Stars (Kaitlin & Rudolph)

We discovered our daughter's newest talent today ... she puts Momma & Daddy to shame on the dance floor. Granny Jo & Poppa Rog sent Kaitlin an adorable Rudolph to play with for Christmas & she's been loving on him for over a week now. Yet, today, the spirit of Christmas must've moved her as she's been getting her groove on every time Rudolph's theme music is played. We're thinking about signing her up for Dancing with the Stars! Check out Kaitlin busting a move before bed time!

Snow in VA

Kaitlin experienced snow for the first time on Saturday.  We got about 7-8” at our house & she was more than curious to figure out the white stuff outside the windows.  We decided to let her go outside & see it for herself.

And as an added bonus, here is a funny picture of Kaitlin figuring out she was caught in the act of doing something she’s not supposed to do … touch the tree.  By the way, the tree is covered with beach ornaments because even while its snowing outside, we’re dreaming of some place MUCH warmer.

Kaitlin Takes a Step

You’ll have to excuse the earthquake-like movie & Kory’s Christmas pajamas, but we were so excited we had to film it – Kaitlin took about 7 steps tonight without falling so we had to pickup a camera & start filming! She got a little camera shy & decided while the red light was on that she would rather walk backwards than forwards but we still got her taking a few steps on her own. I guess Kory owes Gigi $10 since Kaitlin started “walking” 22 days before the bet deadline. Do you think she takes cash or check? Anyway, check it out, we’re so proud of our “little” 8 month old!
