Sydney and I made a snowman today! He isn't very big, mostly because Sydney doesn't have much of an attention span, and because there wasn't much snow left after it rained all night. That is also the reason it was perfect snowman making conditions. We tried to make one earlier when there was lots of snow, but it was way too powdery. I also couldn't figure out why she was sad and didn't want to stand by the snowman for the picture. It was because she wanted to wear the Mickey Mouse hat!

Sydney didn't do well at her first attempt at sitting on Santa's lap. We went to the festival of trees on Saturday (that's why it was Sydney's first attempt - it wasn't at a mall - I just don't frequent those) with some people in my family. She probably would have done better last year, she wasn't so clingy then. She had some cousins there to show her how to do it (yes, I will email all of the shots soon), but maybe she'll do better next year.

I surprised Eran this week with his early Christmas present. I traded his old Jeep in for a new one because this one has 4 doors - now Sydney can ride with Daddy too. The top picture is as he was just pulling into the driveway in my car (I lied and told him I was taking his car to get the oil changed that day). The 2nd picture is the priceless look on his face as he saw it and knew what it was. The bottom picture is self explanatory. I saw one of these 4 door Rubicons when I was in California and thought, "Wow, that's pretty!" I tentatively started looking when I came home, but the 2 dealerships I was familiar with didn't have any in stock and would not be getting more in before Christmas. Last week I found one! It may not have been the smartest financial decision present, but it sure is fun! Anyone wanting a ride, come on over!
