I'm thinking the 12 Day of Christmas was written by someone living in a warmer climate. Should someone have given us a partridge in a pear tree last year...that poor little tree would have soon shivered off all its leaves. And let's hope the partridge was wearing a parka! 2008 started off cold and snowy here in Iowa.
As a result, we as a family tend to hibernate a bit in January following the excitement of the holidays. It's crazy to look back and see how different the girls each looked just 11 months ago. How much they do change in that short amount of time.
Tilde became a part of our family a year ago at the end of this month, and looking back, the start of our year was full of fun memories of getting to know our newest family member.
On the second day of Christmas my true love gave to me...
