Higgins Family Photos
December 2004

The first weekend in December, we took a short trip to Pittsburgh to visit Grandma & Grandpa Haroldsen...

December 2: Grandma playing "patty-cake" with Emily, who finds this quite amusing
"I remember this toy!"
  ...at a favorite Chinese restaurant, the Sesame Inn. 
(Emily, Grandma Brenda,  Grandpa Elliot, Daddy Matt -
with Mommy Jen taking the photo, of course)

Back Home, it's time to put up the Christmas Tree...
Dec 12: Emily (5 mo. old) examines a neat ornament...

On December 15th, Emily had her first "play date", at the Reynolds home with couple of our new friends...
We tried taking a picture of the kids, but they were too interested in the boxes under the Christmas tree...

So we figured we better include the moms:
Elizabethe and 7 mo old Emmaleigh Reynolds, Ladoya and
1 yr old Marcus Wells,  Jen and 5 mo old Emily (Higgins)

Emily's favorite thing at Emmalei's house
was the "johnny jump-up"
(which the Reynolds were very nice to lend us for a while)

"Hey - I can reach a lot better , sitting up!"
"Thanks for the reindeer slippers Grandma Haroldsen!"
"Thanks for the Lights & Sounds Aquarium Grandma Higgins!"

...trying on Emily's dress for Aunt Nicole's upcoming wedding...

...And finally:
Christmas 2004
For Emily's first Christmas, we were happy to stay home, but even more happy to learn Grandma and Grandpa Haroldsen could come
visit for a couple days! We also went out to the Boschis (Jen's aunt and family) the day after Christmas for a family dinner...
"Are you excited yet?"
(Jen and 5 month old Emily,  Christmas Eve)

"Well this is an odd sock!"
(Christmas morning)

And what is the best thing under the tree
this year? Our sweet little "baby doll"!

"Oooh - that's cool , Grandma Higgins!"
"Here, Daddy, let me help you with that..."
"This is just too much fun!"
(Emily with a pile of her presents, including the fun hat
from Jen's aunt, Barbara Martel)

"How can you eat these?!"
(Aunt Jana let Emily try one of her Cheetos....)

Wow! What a year - we can hardly wait to see what's in store for 2005!
(oh, alright, I'm finally putting this page of photos up in March, but I do seem to be mysteriously busy these days...)
