In other news, we've been having a lot of fun this advent season, despite all the cold weather, and Elle gets soo excited about pulling down the day's number on the advent calendar (especially since there's a hershey kiss in each one!). We have yet to set up the tree, since it seems we have been really busy lately, but we hope to have it up this weekend. Elle's already discovered Santa, though, and she's ecstatic every time we come across him. She starts jumping and waving and calling to him, "Hi santa, hi santa, hi santa!" However, she's terrified if he waves back or approaches her, and she's definitely not okay with getting close to him! Oh well; maybe next year! Lauren's been doing really well too and has become more smiley lately. Elle and I both love to hold her and try to make her smile at us. Lauren's started rolling over more recently (just front to back) too, which has been great to see, since we were told she could be a few weeks behind, since she was so early. She is still a more easygoing baby than Elle, but she's certainly not as laidback as many babies I've seen. She's decided recently that she hates the car, just like her sister did at that age, so our trip home after Christmas should be fun!
Anyway, here are some pictures of the girls from the past few weeks:
