Merry Christmas from the McMottes

These silly monkeys make the holidays shine.

Eating at the Pit

Any good trip to my parents' house includes a trip to Southern Pit!  It's even more fun when your cousins join you.

Up in the AIr

At the end of September, Charlie and Rosie took their first ride on an airplane! We flew to Atlanta for a long weekend, and Charlie sat with me, and Rosie and Marc were right behind us. 

They both did really well at the airport and on the plane. Charlie loved the window, but he needs to be just a little taller to look out the entire ride.

Police Memorial

We have a plan.  Once it gets warmer, we are going to spend our weekends exploring this new place where we live.  I can't wait to explore all that this area has to offer.

We did get to check out one place before it got to cold (for us southerners, anyway.) At my brother's request, we went to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial, took pictures and got a rubbing of the name of an officer who had been killed in the line of duty.  It was a  lovely memorial, and very fitting.

Sleeping with Rosie

She moves around more than anyone I have ever seen, and usually is perpendicular to her sleeping companions.  One night she ended up at the end of the bed.  I made a barrier so she wouldn't fall off and by morning, she was back at the head of the bed again.  I hoping that we can have her tonsils out when she turns 3 and it will help with the restlessness and snoring.

Jedis and Waffles

Our new neighborhood does a lot of neighborhood activities.  During the summer, there is a movie series on the lawn, and this year they featured the Star Wars movies.  We moved in just in time to catch Return of the Jedi.  Between the movie and the Ice Cream and Waffles food truck, we had a pretty good night.

Post-Dinner Stroll

I very much look forward to warmer weather, when we can take after dinner walks, pick flowers and be silly.
