Sweet Baby

Abby decided to let her baby take a slide tonight.
(I don't know what to do with her hair - I call this the Farrah Fawcett look)

And yes, Stu is asleep on the couch. But I am really working on teaching Abby to be sweet, she is pretty mean to our dog!

Running for the ball.

She loves throwing her ball.

My little sweetie.
**Sorry for the boring post, I just wanted to put up some pictures of Abby.

I never thought....

I never thought I would say these two things....but I did tonight.
  • "Color on your own page, this is Mommy's page to color on."
  • "Please stop throwing tampons at Mommy's head."

Christmas Time

We had such a wonderful, white Christmas. Exhausting, but wonderful!
(and my camera is acting up, so sorry about some of the quality)Santa left a new doll and swing along with a stocking.

Abby loved it! She just pushed and pushed it.

"Wee, Wee"

I didn't get a picture of it, but she pushed it so hard that she fell into it and got tangled. Best part of the day!
She may look like she is crying, but that was her overjoyed face.

The poor stocking is as big as her!

Ali was curious of course.

Lots and lots of bracelets.

She was pretty much over it once her bracelets were on.

Also got lots of Silly Bandz and Silly Ringz

Opening her other presents.

Playing with her crayons and coloring books.

After our Christmas, we went to Gammy's for Christmas.

This was pretty much all that I saw. Abby wanting to bring me all of her goodies.

A new stroller and doll.

She loves clasping it.

After Gammy's, we went to Nana and Poppa's.
Abby got a motorized riding toy.

She loved to look at it.

This was her first and only attempt at getting on it.

I am hoping that once we can take it outside, she will love it.

Playing with her new laptop.

Maybe she will leave Mommy and Daddy's alone now!
I am exhausted tonight, but plan on taking a picture of everything that she got. I want to be able to remember it for years to come!
Thanks to all of our family and friends for the great presents and great times!!
*Jules, it was a hit!! Ill have to get a picture soon.

Christmas Card 2010

Here is a picture of our Christmas card for 2010.

I was very happy with how they turned out and will probably be using the same company again next year!
*However, I realized that although I love getting cards and love looking at all of the ones that we have.....I will def. be cutting down on the number that I send next year.
We have been steam cleaning the carpets the past few nights. I am loving it! I will never, never post before and after pictures. Our carpet is one of the main reasons that I never have people over. But it is part of the dream of apartment living (total sarcasm).
Looking forward to the next few days spending time with family. This is the first year in 5 that I haven't had to travel for the holidays....loving it!

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer

Abby woke up Sunday morning with a GIANT zit on her nose. I didn't get a picture that day, but Stu took one tonight. It actually looks better today.

We didn't know that she would get zits this early on!

Can you tell how happy she is that Daddy is taking her picture?


Short Story:

We thought our dishwasher was broken. We would load it, turn it on, then walk away.

Not really paying attention, we would go back later in the day. The dishes are still dirty and no soap. WTH??

So, Stu finally decided to "watch" it so that we could call the maintenance people and tell them exactly what was wrong. He loaded the soap and turned it on and sat back to watch/listen.

About five minutes later, the pitter patter of little Abby feet turned the corner. She walked right up to the dishwasher and pulled the knob to turn it off.

Mystery solved!

Oh What a Night!

Guess what I did Thursday night??
Guess Who I Saw??
Guess How Close We Sat??

Garth popped out of the stage!

(I won't give you a commentary of all the pics)

Surprise Guest..

Abby screamed bloody murder until she was given this...

Apparently also fell down the stairs today.....

Notice the spot on the right. After she fell, she jumped right back up, no tears. Then proceeded to fall down the stairs again. Pretty sure she got those skills from me.
