look alikes

me and my mom, 1977
little o and mr. bear, 2010

I tend to think little o looks more like Nat, which I don't mind. She changes so much from day to day, its hard to tell who she resembles more. At least she SORT of has my eye color....Me: blue/green, little o:blue (secretly hoping a touch of green may appear one day!) I also figure maybe she'll have my hair color-who knows-I'll love her any way, shape, form. My mom sent this pic to me today of when I was a baby and she thought we looked alike! What do you think?

PS-mom, I love your cool bangs:)

Holiday Spirit

This weekend was full of holiday shopping, decorating and baking-it is really starting to feel like Christmas time (well besides the fact that it was 75 degrees today). We started out shopping at the Santa Monica farmer's market and the new outdoor mall. The best thing about the mall is the beautiful rooftop deck-there are a bunch of great restaurants, a food court and has amazing views of the ocean. It was a clear sunny day, and it felt great to sit out and bask in the sun for a bit. Later that evening, we pulled out our ornaments and stockings and decorated the tree, which we couldnt do without freshly baked chocolate chip cookies! This recipe is my favorite. This time we added some peanut m&m's into the mix-it was super yummy!

Today, I caught a peek of little o sharing her secrets with her new found bear friend, while Nat and I hung cranberry and popcorn around the tree.

Then I attempted to make an ornament out of her footprints-but it didnt come out quite as expected. When I placed her feet into the plaster (eiwww!) she wouldn't keep her feet still. She kept wiggling her toes and this is what we ended up with.
