win our hearts and minds and enrich our lives. From holding her all swaddled up in a blanket, to seeing her first angelic smile, from her first laugh, to her first stinker face, I think I've had one of the best years in my life, laughing and smiling, feeling the joy only a grandchild can bring. Tegan is perhaps the sweetest, happiest, most contented child I've ever known and I love spending time with her. Watching her grow has truly been a honor and I am looking forward to what this next year brings! Happy Birthday, darling Tegan, we all love you!

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening
by Robert Frost
Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.
My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.
He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.
The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

And here she is returning to the scene of the crime! Poor Noah is trying to distract her from the gift, by offering his cell phone, but Tegan knows this is a new toy! I swear, she is looking more and more like her Mom...
I remember when Shannon opened every gift and then rewrapped each one, thinking that I wouldn't notice! That was her worse Christmas ever, since she knew exactly what she was getting. We laugh about that now, in fact it was so Shannon to do that. I bet Tegan is just like her mom! Lol!
Have fun Shannon!

Finally, I tried and tried to post these videos yesterday, to no avail, but I got them on today. I think it's cute that since she has taken her first steps, she doing it all the time now! She has a stomach virus so she is not 100 percent, but she remains adorable nevertheless!

She even offered me a lick!
Ok, the big news is that last night, Tegan took six, count them, six steps!
On another note, I have connected with my best friend ever from my childhood on facebook, Barb. She is a grandmother of three! I feel so
blessed to be able to connect with her anytime I want now! Today, I
am a happy grandmother!

Keeping her off of the Tree
will be a challenge, but we moved hookless ornaments to the bottom so that she can discover and explore. We have all decided that this Christmas was going to be all about Tegan!
