Ho Ho Ho Merry Christmas

We had a great Christmas this year! On Christmas Eve we went to my parents for a big Christmas dinner and had fun with family. Then on Christmas day we opened gifts and went to my parents in the morning to open more gifts. Later on we went to Bryan's parents and went sledding and played games. Then we went to Bryan's Brother's house and had a nice pot roast dinner and watched Bourne Ultimatum. All and all it was lots of family and fun! Gracie got a few new toys and clothes and got a big girl car seat that she Loves. It's so weird to look at the back seat and see her facing forward. She's always grinning from ear to ear when we look back at her and thinks she's pretty hot stuff in her big girl car seat. Bryan got all new suits this year for work and some new basketball shoes. I got a house cleaner! Yeah!! New work out clothes and a spa maternity package. I am stoked for that! We were so blessed this Christmas to be so close to both of our families.

Christmas Cheer Party

What a blast!! We had a cheer reunion Christmas party at my house last week. It was so much fun! Husbands and family were invited so we could see everyones little ones and get to know the hubbys. We had a big pot luck dinner (thanks for everyone that brought food it was so yummy!) We put Amanda in charge of games seeing how she's so creative with things like that. And it was really fun. One of the games we played was with the couples and we had to keep an apple between our foreheads while we were told what to do (step left, squat and jump) while we tried to keep the apple from falling. Congrats Erin and Chris they were our winners! I aslo filled my dining room table full of old cheer pictures of everyone so they could remember the good old days. All the girls got a kick out of the pictures and so did the husbands. Alexis new husband commented "Wow honey your showing some leg in this picture" LOL.. Well we want to try to do this every year now with all of us getting together around the holidays. For those of you who couldn't come we hope to see you next year!

Morning sickness

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. For those of you who don't know I'm expecting! I know I'm crazy! I haven't been feeling the best but I think I'm pulling out of it now. I just wasn't expecting to get sick because I didn't with Gracie only a little nauseated at night. But now I only get sick in the evening so I'm able to function now. What a bad time of year to feel sick! I feel like I haven't really been in the whole Christmas spirit like I usually am. I didn't even do Christmas cards this year so I feel like such a humbug. Oh well next year I will be better. Love all you guys and I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

It didn't take long for Gracie to dig in to her cake. A couple test runs and she decided forget the hands and started putting her mouth right on the cake. That's my girl!! Takes after her Mom. Ha ha..

It took a little help from Mom to open the presents but Gracie caught on fast and got the hang of it. She enjoyed all her gifts and always sucked her thumb when it was a stuffed animal or something soft. LOL..

O Christmas Tree

We put a Christmas tree up the day after Thanksgiving while Gracie was in bed. The next morning when we got her up she saw it and was so excited. She pointed to it and said "wassatt" meaning what's that. She loved it! That morning she grabed the tree skirt put it over her head and popped through the middle it was so funny. Our little Gracie tree.

Chuckey Cheese

Gracie and her friends went to Chuckey Cheese for Adelyns Birthday and the girls had lots of fun. Gracie loved the steering wheels and driving the cars. Talise's little girl Bella enjoyed the rides so much she would scream everytime she would take her off the rides until she got on to the next one. It was so funny.. Even the Moms joined in the fun a little and played some of the games. LOL..

Daddy's Soccer Games

Bryan is in a soccer league and is loving it! He played all growing up and in highschool but hasn't really played since then. So when he found out that there was a year round indoor soccer league he was stoked! I've never gotten to see Bryan play soccer until now and I was very impressed he is really good. And I really enjoy watching the game cause they can play off the walls so it's a fast moving and high scoring game. Gracie loves watching the games too and cheers for Daddy.

My Thanksgiving Baby

Thanksgiving will always be a special time of year for us now because it will always remind me of Gracie being born around that time. She will always be my little pumpkin girl who we love so much!

Girly day

Gracie and I thought we'd have some fun and put all her hair in curlers. The things girls go through for beauty. LOL.. As you can see in the last picture Gracie can stand all by herself now and took her first steps on Oct. 30th. Yeah!! She can take three to four steps by herself so it wont be long now. Yikes Mommy better be on her toes. Gracie also just learned how to come down stairs now. She's been going up them for a while but just mastered coming down them. Thank goodness because I've been paranoid about it for some time now.
