We had quite a merry christmas indeed! Poppy had so much fun playing with her cousins, opening gifts and eating lots of food.

I can hardly believe Christmas is over. Looking forward to things getting back to normal around here. Marc and I both have off this week and are looking forward to lots of fun stuff we have planned with Poppy. This morning was her very first visit to the dentist. She was a champ! She let the hygenist clean her teeth and the dentist do an inspection. Once again, little miss surprised us all. And then as a treat for doing such a good job at the dentist, after her nap we all went to PF Chang's for dinner and then out for her first movie theater experience. We went to see The Princess and the Frog and she absolutely loved it. She might have liked the popcorn and the pink lemonade even more than the movie. Tomorrow we're off the the Strong Museum of Play...
