6 months!

Monday, December 22, 2014

Our little girl turned 6 months.. that's half a year... let me try to even start processing that.  She has developed the sweetest little personality and seems to be doing something new each day.

We decided that at her 6 month appointment we would go ahead and have her ears pierced and they even did them in the pediatricians office. She of course cried for a minute but was over it and then came the shots... such a little trooper.

She is doing so well on solid foods and has really liked everything with the exception of bananas.  She hated bananas. Like gagged the whole time she was eating them.  She is starting to sit up a little better on her own.  Is rolling around on the floor like crazy.  Still loves to be snuggled just as much as ever.  Has formed an attachment to a lion/ cat/ satin rag... none of us can really figure out what it is supposed to be.  Loves to stand up with assistance. 
Happy Thanksgiving!

Our Weekend

Monday, December 8, 2014

On Friday we welcomed a new baby to the family so on Saturday Bug and I made the trip to the hospital to meet her new cousin.  Joe and Jessica officially said hello to sweet, little Jon Burl . 

We then made our way over to pick up some things for the day, we had a birthday party and a family Christmas to go to, so as soon as we finished shopping we headed back home to get ready.

First up we had sweet Haven's 1st birthday party, Haven is a daycare friend of Bugs and such an incredibly fun little girl.

They served pancakes with snow, which were delish and such a fun food idea for kids, fruit and gingerbread sleighs.

We then had Spencer's family Christmas.

her 1st guitar and Christmas gift
I made my mom's Oreo Delight [recipe below] and Bacon Stuffed Deviled Eggs.  Deviled eggs are my jam but Spence HATES it when I make them because they stink up the whole house... but he also hates eggs all together so go figure.

Oreo Delight
2 small packages french vanilla pudding
1 8oz pkg cream cheese
3 cups milk
1 tub of Cool Whip
1 package Oreos

Mix together pudding, [softened] cream cheese, milk and Cool Whip.  Layer 1 row of Oreos on the bottom of a trifle dish, half the pudding mixture on top, another row of Oreos, remaining pudding mixture and last row of Oreos.  That's it!

I did try to start working/ playing with my camera again to see if I can once again try to learn to love it- I have a love/ hate relationship with it and rarely get it out anymore.  I decided to see if Bug would let me take some Christmas pictures of her and this is what I got...

So these were with my phone 

I have pinned a couple of tutorials on Pinterest to give me the run down on the basics so we will see where it leads; its just too easy to whip my phone out and snap a quick photo.

I also ordered our Christmas cards right before the weekend so I'm hoping they come in sooner rather than later since I always snazz them up a bit with fun fonts and calligraphy.
