christmastime!

our tradition is to make croissant dough on christmas day for our annual new year’s day croissant party.  even phina got in on the action.  then we headed to fern & marty’s for a delicious meal with a roast from our half cow.  yum!

getting her hands in the dough...

fun new developments: grabbing, rolling over (both ways!), all kinds of noises for all kinds of occasions, overall good times.

p.s. anyone interested can drag photos from the blog to their desktop.  if it’s a slideshow, just pause on the photo you want and then drag.  enjoy!
