|Here is Matt's uncle Joel with Annie. |
Joel looks lovely, although Annie is showing some major 'tude.
(Also displayed in the first photo.)
(To her credit it was quite chilly.)
|Annie was obsessed with poor Penelope, and often tugged at her tail and ears.|
|Here's Granny Nanny (Matt's mom) showing her how to pet her gently. |
Annie is all, "What? Me pull the cat's ears?! It's insulting you would even think that!"
Then she pulled them anyway. (of course)
|Here is Matt and Annie on Christmas Eve as we're about to go into our hotel for the night.|
It started flurrying, which I thought was magical. Annie was over it, though.
Snow smow, she seemed to say. It's late and I want my bottle, people!
|"Why is everyone so excited?!"|
From the left: Matt's Aunt Debbie, cousin Julia, Uncle and Aunt Dave and Cyndy, and poor Laura,
who is cut off (sorry Laura!)
|We had our big Christmas dinner on Sunday evening, as the whole gang was there, and then on Christmas Day went into Manhattan. Here is Annie bundled up in her stroller.|
|And some of the gang at the tree in Rockefeller Plaza.|
|With dad and Poppy Hoppy on a carousel in Bryant Park.|
|Matt: "Wave, Annie!"|
|Matt and Annie.|
|Such is the life:|
girl woke up one block away from the Chinese place where we ate dinner.
Obviously, she knows what is important in life.
|"Now, let's see what the specials are today."|
|"I'd like some tea, too. You can put it in the sippy cup, Poppy Hoppy."|
|Us at Rockefeller Plaza's Christmas tree. I love this shot.|
|My father got Annie a rocking horse, much like the ponies we see while vacationing in Chincoteague.|
She's still a bit scared of it. Here she is looking...uh... ambivalent.
|Today it started snowing, and we took to the neighborhood for a little walk. Here is Matt and Annie in front of the house. (Four hours later it's still coming down!)|
|And our doggie daughter, Penny.|
