(lately, if she is having fun, she's gotta stick her tongue out)
There's a little Charlie Brown tree lot around the block from our house and the trees are usually skinny and scrawny, but we like them like that. And it was fun to walk there with Poppy. And the owner has a little Jack Russell that Lola gets into a fight with every year...
Poppy helped Daddy pick out the perfect tree... and even helped carry it home.
Poppy was filled with ooh's and ahhh's when she woke up from her nap to see our tree all lit up and decorated with glittery ornaments and popcorn for her to snack on...
...and daddy even let her put the star on top, or at least try to...
Saturday night was my work Christmas party and let's just say that drinking as much beer as you can before the bar closes, only to have the bar stay open for 2 additional hours, and yet I somehow forgot to slow down with the beer intake, well, just isn't a good idea anymore. I'm not sure it was ever a good idea, but this was my first super bad hangover since Poppy has been home and wow, having to chase a 19-month-old when you're hungover is so not fun. And that would be why I missed my photography class field trip that was bright and early on Sunday morning (but at least I had fun at the party the night before!). We did manage to make it to our agency's Christmas party later in the afternoon.
We started at the craft table making an ornament. Poppy loves stuff like this...
And then we had a visit from the lamest Santa ever (apparently he missed the memo that said Santa has a big white beard and big belly) and we were shocked that Poppy didn't freak out just by looking at him...
Time for the group shot...
We had a great time at the party. I love being able to talk to adoptive parents about some of the issues we experience. And Poppy even has a little girl that she was friends with in Korea that she is able to play with at these get-togethers.
Wow. Way to put zero effort into it, Santa!
How nice, what a great thing!! Love the pics with Poppy putting the star on the tree! Soooo priceless!!
that is the coolest christmas lot sign.
look at all of that snow.i am so jealous!
What a beautiful time of the year for you all. Your first Christmas together looks like it's a special one. (Sorry for having a bit of a hand in the reason for your hangover........:) )
Beautiful pics of Poppy and the Christmas tree. I bet this is so cool for her.
Wow that Santa SUCKS! Maybe if it was some Business Christmas dinner he could get away with so little effort, but a kids get together! Come on dude, try a little.
Love the photos of Poppy, I swear she gets more adorable every time you post new photos.
i hear ya, hangovers w/little ones are almost impossible to get over. oh, but the night before is always so fun!!
poppy is too cute all bundled up - i love her hat!!! how cool that she has a playmate from korea!! i have some photos of ruby in korea with a little friend and i wonder where she is now and if we could somehow figure that out. what a special friend!!
