One year ago today.

Lily Eve means Pure Life.
There is no better way to describe her than that. You never know what you're going to get when your baby is born and every day, we feel like we are opening a new gift with Lily. She is so surprising and enchanting. We love knowing her and watching her discover life.

9 days before she arrived.

Jan 2, 2009. 18 minutes after we arrived at the hospital!
I didn't sleep well last night and it made me think of the craziness of that night one year ago when Lily entered this world quickly and hasn't slowed down since.

A few things Lily loves: crazy dancing, animals, outside, cheese, music, "PaPa" (piper), yelling, blankies, mommy, feeding Boone, smiling, boys with dark hair, electronics, life

Snowed in

our front yard

We heard the forcast, but never thought that we would actually get 10-12 inches of snow! Well, it happened. It snowed all day pretty hard. Now we can't even get out of our driveway. This is the most snow Black Mountain has seen since the "storm of '94." It's a ton of fun!

back yard- boone doesn't know what to do....

Our porch last night

114 takes.

I should have know this wasn't going to go well when this was the first picture we took......

Here are the "best" of 114 pictures that Phil took trying to get a picture of the girls in their coordinating Christmas dresses for our family.

Seriously. 114 pictures. Lily did not smile one time.

I would take another 114 though. I never get tired of these faces.....
