10 Months

 Where has the time gone!?! Happy 10 months sweet girl.
Not much has changed in the last month, BUT you are NOW SLEEPING through the NIGHT!
Best update yet! Of course, our trip has thrown her off a bit, but I'm thrilled.

We love you Emerson Kate. Thanks for keeping us on our toes!

$1,200 Haircut

Ok, we didn't really pay $1,200 for a haircut. That's crazy, BUT Tom did make a deal with his viewers that if they helped him raise $1000 for the Salvation Army he would shave his head live on the morning show. He raised quite a bit for his online kettle, but here he is raising the bell at a local store to top off his kettle.
 Stella emptied the change holder in the car and went to town. I wasn't a fan of Tom shaving his head, but hey, it's all for a good cause.
Stella enjoyed ringing the bell. I do think she got a few nice folks to empty their pockets.
And here you go...proof that Tom's co-anchors shaved his head just before his vacation to Oregon.
I think this shot is Tom questioning his deal.
NO turning back at this point.
Here's the done deal! I had a better close up, but it wouldn't load. It's slowly coming back in...he's back on the anchor desk Monday so we'll see :)

Thanks to all that supported him. He had fun raising the money. He ended up with a little over $1,200...that's an expensive haircut.

Merry Thanksgiving

 Our Thanksgiving was CRAZY. It's all our fault because we celebrated Christmas too! Since we'll be in Oregon  we decided to knock out both holidays with Tom's side of the family last weekend. It was super fun! Stella and Emerson love their Grammie and Papa.
 The amount of gifts for the girls was crazy. Here's Emerson with her HUGE present! She was all smiles during the opening of presents.
 Laughing with Papa...notice the mess we've made in the background.
 Stella was very serious about her presents and opened them all by herself :)
 Too busy to smile.
 Emerson just figuring out her new toy.
 Checking out her PRINCESS Castle! It's the real Cinderella castle with all the princesses and their princes...big hit :)
The fam!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope you're enjoying the gear-up for Christmas. Let's not forget the reason for the season!
