Tis the Season

Sorry I am having technical difficulties (surprise surprise) and cannot pull up our other fun pics. But perhaps in another 6 months or so I will get in the "blogging mood" and post some more.

Merry Christmas!!

Family parties: With both sides here in town we have had a few. This image shows how fun Grace is at parties. All she wants to do is run and play which is fine unless you want to visit with others and take pictures. So, here's an attempt at a sweet and sentimental photo of Grace with her Great Grandma and Grandpa Connolly.

Poor Benson (Grace's cousin), Grace just loves him so much and sometimes a little too much!

Dancing with the musical trees- always a fantastic feature of Zoo Lights.

Going to the Zoo Lights: a must for everyone.

The real Santa is scary but a cow Santa is cute? I sure hope she isn't planning on joining the FFA soon- not that there's anything wrong with that :)!

Visiting Santa at Bass Pro Shop: You would think Grace would love Santa the way she always smiles and says "hohoho" whenever we see an image of him, but of course not the case. Therefore, Mom and Grace had a visit with Santa together.

Silver Bells, Christmas Sweaters and of course "Wham's" greatest holiday hit "Last Christmas I Gave You My Heart" are just a few of my favorite things about this season, but having a toddler to share it with is the BEST!

Here are some things we've done so far...

Is it normal for a mom to just want to play with their baby all day and stare at her when she sleeps because she is SO STINKING CUTE! Seriously sometimes I just can't even handle it and I have to immediately maul her with kisses!
On our family vacation Brittney took some awesome pictures for us- she is SO talented, if you want to see more of her stuff check out her blog she really is amazing.

Happy Birthday Grace!

Yes, it has been practically a year since either Brandon or I have blogged. It is absolute, we are terrible bloggers! Even with so many family and friends living out away from us I am still the worst at this. Anyway, I will not make any promises but I thought a quick update would be better than nothing- right?
Our baby Grace is no longer a baby- she is a toddler! She loves dogs, books, eating "big girl food", swimming and smiling at everyone she sees (particularly people of the male race).
Below are some fun pics of Grace on the big day enjoying her cake. She defintely ate way too much frosting and with the rest of her cake deciding it would be a fun sensory activity to smear it all over her body.
Enjoy and perhaps Brandon or I will post again someday soon, or not, we shall see!
