Farewell 2012

For New Year’s Eve I wanted to stay closer to home. My mother-in-law’s neighbors were having a “block” party so we joined in!
However it was FREEZING outside!!
Landon and the neighbor kids roasted marshmallows.
Leia was asleep
and then she was awake. She wanted in on all the fun.
Josalyn and her family came over
The girls and I did some Jello shots!!
Landon and Delaney chilled out watching The Lorax!
Party Animals!!!
We lit some sparklers for like half a second cuz it was FA-REEZING!!
Josalyn cracks me up!
Laters 2012!!

Christmas Chaos

With lots of family Christmas is always busy.
So here is a quick low down on our Christmas Day.
(Yes, I said DAY. This was all in ONE day!)
Christmas morning at “home”
Landon woke up at 4 AM! Nick told him he had to wait for the rest of us to get up. He had to stay on the couch! Surprisingly he stayed there and feel back to sleep for a couple hours ‘til the rest of us woke up.
Next stop..
The Heuer’s
The Fernandez’s

Whoooh! I’m tired just posting about it.
Merry Christmas!!!

Santa Babies

I REALLY wanted the kids to visit Santa this year. It IS Leia’s FIRST Christmas after all!
But it was the weekend before Christmas and Nick REALLY didn’t want to go to the mall.
I may or may not have used puppy dog eyes, pouty/quiver lip, and eye batting to get my way. I have no shame!
So to the mall we went! ;D
And we stood in line.
we waited….
and waited…
and waited some more..
FINALLY we got to the front!
Landon wrote a letter to Santa (so freaking cute!)
He wanted to give his letter to Santa so he would not let me keep it :(
They FINALLY got to visit with Santa!!!
I am soooooo happy Leia didn’t freak out or cry! Santa asked Landon what he wanted for Christmas and Landon froze. He couldn’t remember anything that he wanted. Good thing Santa has elves that are always listening!! *wink*

Tandem Fun

Sometimes Nick finds some pretty good stuff at Goodwill. Usually we play with the fun stuff a couple times and then sell it.DSC06080
This time was no exception. When Nick found this Tandem Bike
Landon and him rode around the neighborhood a couple times.
They had a good time
And then it was sold.
But it was fun while it lasted!!!

Eight Months Old

Leia you are EIGHT months old!!!
Sleep: You usually sleep through the night but some nights you wake up. After a diaper change and bottle you go right back to sleep until around 7:30am.
Feed: You are still eating solids! You still HATE green beans and peas but you're not allergic to anything yet.
Weight: I have no idea what you weight right now. My guess would be about 16-18 pounds.
Length: I am sure you haven't grown much in the last month. My guess would be about 28 inches.
Diapers: You are still in a size 2 diaper.
Clothes: You are wearing 6-9 month clothes! You're such a big girl now.
Hair Color: You are still a red head! You are getting more peach fuzz too! It seems a little lighter but still red!
Eye Color: Your eyes are still blue, but I am still hoping that they will turn green like me and Daddy's.
Milestones: You have started "talking" more. And you are getting closer to crawling. You can sit alone really well and play.
Your Favorite Toy: You still love the Baby Einsteins jumper and you jump up and down!!! There is also a small truck you like to lick and push around.
11.03 First pumpkin patch
11.04 First daylight savings (I’m stretching I know.)
11.06 First Election Day
11.11 First Veteran’s Day
11.22 First Thanksgiving

APS Light Parade

I love going to the APS Light Parade!! I couldn't wait to take Leia this year! It was MUCH warmer and clear skies! Yippie!!
I knew she would love it! Lights, music, what else could an 8 month old want?!

We have dinner and drink hot chocolate. The kids get light up toys. Jamie was nice enough to bring Leia a light up braclet. Thanks Jamie.

The parade started and she was fascinated with all the lights and music!

The parade didn't start until what would have been Leia's bed time so by the end of the parade she was getting tired. She laid her head down on Daddy's leg and watched. It was so freakin' cute!

It was a great time. Leia fell asleep in the car. Can't wait for next year!
