The Naked Chef

Micah has been so excited about Christmas this year. The lights, the decorations, the treats... He's been "helping" with a lot of Christmas baking this last week - some with Grandma and some with me. I got a classic picture of him the other morning as he was helping me make cookies:


We also made sugar cookies at Auntie Rosanna's on Saturday night...



Micah inspecting Grandma & Grandpa's tree from underneath. I think he was remembering his Christmas tree adventure with Uncle Nathan last year (you can see pictures if you click here and scroll down the page)...


Keziah has finally cut another tooth - not surprising after how cranky she's been this week. Her top right is poking through and the top left seems like it's close behind.



She gets such big tears when she cries!


We tried to get some footage of Keziah walking this afternoon. She's been venturing out on her feet more and more in the last couple of days, taking about 8 steps at a time. Here are two videos of her on the go:



This one is funny. She's so excited to get to the toy that her body gets a little ahead of her feet :) (Apologies for my annoying laughter in the background...)

Jamie! First of all, you are looking GOOD!! Secondly, Keziah's sad face just breaks my heart!!! How do you not let her have anything she wants??! :)

How does Micah feel about Keziah's walking? He's soon not going to be able to get away from her! The video with all the crashes was funny...she's doing good though.

Your family has been on my mind a lot this Christmas season, and we will keep on praying for you all.

Those cheeks are so cute, I could just pinch em!!!! Why does he never have clothes on in the pictures he's cooking in? You're 2 are just so adorable. I so wish we could see you guys this Christmas, but we understand the need to spend it with the Toews. I've been praying for you a lot during this season.

Amber - so far, Micah thinks it's great that Keziah is "walking". Who knows how long that will last though :) He's already learned to run away from her since she is a speedy crawler these days!

Laura - I know what you mean about Micah being without clothes in baking pictures. As soon as his clothes get a little wet or dirty he freaks out and we have to take them off :)

Hi Jamie,
Once again, very cute pictures. Thinking and praying for your family especially as you enter this Christmas season with what I imagine are mixed emotions.

Your laugh is not annoying. Though I often hate hearing my voice or laugh on the videos.
I want you to know that I am thinking of you and your family a lot this Christmas as it is the first without Nate.
