Christmas Lights

Another rite of passage now that we are owners of a single family home is putting Christmas lights on the house. Isn't it pretty! (Please disregard the horrible yard & landscaping. Matt & I are giving each other green grass & plants for Christmas).

Christmas Card Pictures

As a rite of passage now that we have a kid Matt & I decided it was time to start sending out Christmas cards. So naturally I embarked upon my mission to get the "perfect" picture.

Failed Attempt #1: The Cute Candy Cane Outfit
This one was doomed to fail from the beginning with a bow that doesn't match all that well & is too big. Plus an unwilling subject...we didn't stand a chance.

Failed Attempt #2: The Cute Smile
Since Adelyn usually has the most smiles for us right after breakfast we thought that would be the perfect time to capture her Kodak moment. Unfortunately Adelyn has never even heard of Kodak.

Failed Attempt #3: The Cute Snowflake Outfit

Everyone knows the 3rd times a charm...except for this time.

Mission Aborted.

Happy Birthday!!!

We have lots of celebrating to do at our house as Adelyn turned 2 months old yesterday & drum roll please... Matt celebrates the BIG 3-0 TODAY!!! As you can imagine some of us are more excited about the age we're celebrating than others. At her 2 month check up Adelyn weighed 9 lbs. 12.5 oz. (Aunt Darla's birth weight!) and is 23 inches long. So we have a long skinny girl on our hands who will be sporting the baggy clothes look for quite sometime I think. Over the past couple of weeks she has started to smile more and more. Every once in a while I hear a little laugh out of her too. So that's been fun to watch. I missed posting a Happy Thanksgiving blog so here are some pictures from that day.

Matt watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade while Adelyn got an early start on one of her Thanksgiving Day naps.

"Mommy, what is this thing on my head? It is as big as me!"

I'm ready for my turkey & stuffing!

What a sleepy head! It must be from all that turkey & stuffing.

Thanksgiving was a lot of fun & I was so glad to finally feel really full! As we are gearing up for Christmas Adelyn is getting excited about her first trip to Kentucky as Matt & I are debating...will it take us 3 or 4 days to get there & will we need 1 car or 2?
