Christmas Take 2 (This is my 100th Post - Woohoo!!)

Due to my new "employment", I was VERY BUSY the week between Christmas & New Year's. Therefore, we did not travel this year for Christmas. Matt's parents came here for the actual Christmas holiday and then my family came the week of New Year's to celebrate. It was so much fun to have the time together. It is very rare for us all to be in one place. My grandparents and Uncle John even got to come visit for a couple of days. We celebrated New Year's, then Christmas, then my Dad's recent graduation, and then Christmas again. In between all the celebration were some "competitive" games of Monopoly, Upwords, Rook, and Taboo and lots of Kodak moments. Cole decided to have his debut overnight stay in the hospital. You can see the beginnings of his allergic reaction in one of the pictures below, but I will spare you the pictures from the ER - they are sad!!! Thanks so much Mama/Gram-Gram, Daddy/Papa G, Daniel, Cristina, Ben, Grandmother, Granddaddy, Uncle John, and Candace for coming to visit and Bryan (even though you live here)!! You each made it a wonderful week for us.

Why I've been absent....

So Savannah had a stomach virus, 3 ear infections, roseola virus, bronchiolitis caused by RSV, she turned one, started going to preschool, started walking, is cutting molars, is trying to talk, and managed to get herself into the bath tub during Cole's bath while she was fully clothed the other night.....

Cole had 2 ear infections, a couple of viruses, wants to use the potty, doesn't want to use the potty, started going to preschool, became a Mama's boy, is talking in complete sentences, pulled 6 eggs out of the refrigerator and onto the floor the other night, and taught us the hard way that he is severely allergic to one of the antibiotics he was taking for his ear infection....

I started working "outside the home" again on a sort of part-time basis, am learning what it means to let things go, am really tired all the time, and trying to keep up with everything above....

Matt is being a REAL TROOPER about our lives being topsy turvy right now....

All of this in the middle of the Holiday Season....So... all that being blogged... I will try to do better.....

Merry Christmas....

Here's a peak at our Christmas Season...










....we didn't take enough pictures on Christmas morning!!

Thanks Nana & Pawpaw for coming to visit us for Christmas!!!!

Just for fun...October & November

Some of my favorite pics from October & November in no particular order...














Happy 1st Birthday Savannah!!!!!

Savannah was so cute when she opened her pretty dress from Gram-Gram & Papa G. That face is just priceless!!!!





Even through an ear infection and roseola virus, Savannah enjoyed her party and cakes. Thanks so much Gram-Gram for making sure there were homemade cakes even though I was sick!!!

I would have posted more pictures, but it is January now & this did happen in October. Thanks so much to all of our family & friends who came to celebrate our beautiful baby girl's first birthday with us!!!
