Christmas in Florida!

This year, we spent Christmas in Naples at Grandma and Grandpa Dyer's house there. It was so much warmer than Boise! Santa Claus came and gave Sloane some wonderful gifts and there was so much to eat and do! The highlight was the beach on Christmas Day on the Gulf of Mexico. We went with Great Uncle Al and Pat McFall, who were visiting for the day. Sloane loved the sand and getting her feet wet in the waves that washed up on shore. Mom and Dad had a great time golfing!!

Our family pictures

When Sloane finally turned one, we decided to have our family pictures taken. Dannie Frost of A Time to Remember Photography was the very talented lady who took our photos at beautiful Kathryn Albertson Park in Boise. The weather was gorgeous, the leaves were turning and Sloane was...well, she was pretty cooperative. Enjoy!

She's walking!

It happened just like that - last week, Sloane just walked all the way across the living room and into the hallway and she never looked back. She's been upright ever since!

Of course we captured her first steps on film!!

Happy birthday Sloane!

October 26th was Sloane's 1st happy birthday!! We had a big Baby Einstein themed party since it's Sloane's favorite. We had a caterpillar cake, balloons, party favors and lots and lots of friends. The party turned into a big bash and tons of fun was had by all!

We had so much fun in Orlando! Phil had to go for a business trip so we all decided to go and have fun and have some Grandma and Grandpa Dyer time too. We stayed right in the middle of things in Orlando at the Hard Rock hotel which was great for Sloane! Our first trip was to Disney World (of course) and the Magic Kingdom!
