' We have staked the whole of all our political
institutions upon the capacity of mankind for
self-government, upon the capacity of each and
all of us to govern ourselves, to control
ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to
the Ten Commandments of God.'

Daci's December

With the first snow of the year Rick just HAD to take Daci out in the sled. It was so cute watching him drag her around the backyard on this cute, old-fashioned sled. Daci doesn't have a snow suit so we dug out an adorable one that Penny used with all of her kids (can you say 80's?) when they were about 4 years old :) The arms and legs were about two feet longer than the end of her hands and feet. It was hilarious to see her in it. Also kind of sentimental since Rick wore it when he was little :)

Daci playing with her snowballs


Daci learned to climb the stairs the last part of November. One second she was next to my feet and the next I couldn't find her. I started looking and after a few seconds of not being able to find her, I panicked. I had looked everywhere and she was no where to be seen. I finally looked up and saw her at the top of the stairs. What a nut! She is such a go-er :) This is a pic of her climbing, isn't she so proud of herself?

Lately she doesn't want to play with us as much anymore, she would much rather play on her own with her toys. She loves these big lego blocks!
