Christmas Dresses

We love finding Daddy in his office at the church, and especially when we can show off our pretty Christmas dresses.

We finally got the family reunion pictures from last summer, and we were looking through them this morning.  Ellie said, "There's Jasmine!  She and I are BFFs."  I asked her if she knew what BFF stood for and she said, "yeah, Best Friends Forever.  Jasmine told me that.  And we have a secret handshake.  You give 5, and then knuckles, and then thumbs."

Black Friday Shopping

The Book Club Ladies love to meet on Black Friday for some shopping.  We have relaxed in the last few years, and didn't meet until 8 a.m.    My alarm either did not go off or I didn't wake up with it, and woke up at 7:46.  I showered, dressed, and got to the meeting place by 8:25.  I was impressed with myself.

Greg didn't have a game this year for the first time that I can remember.  I told the BCLs I was in for the day, and I forgot that it is a 12 hour extravaganza.  It was an awesome day with my friends, and Greg loved having the girls all to himself all day long.

We are only missing Kandice, who thinks it is more fun to go to Wyoming for Thanksgiving every year...

Our Favorite Spot

Cece and I like to hang out in the Stake Wing and take selfies to text to {R} during church.  It's pretty fun.   I also dressed the girls in their Christmas dresses. We just couldn't wait any more!

The King and I

We were able to go watch Lyssa perform as Lady Thiang in The King and I.  It was 3 hours of awesomeness.  We went to the matinee so it wasn't too full, and I was able to walk around and bounce Cece in the back for about an hour until she fell asleep.  Ellie ate up the whole show, sitting with Aunt Bobi and Uncle Brian.  Lynnie did well until Daddy had to slip out early to go to his basketball game, and then she wanted to be done.  Lyssa did great, with beautiful singing and a fun accent.

Cece has been constipated over the weekend, and finally got things moving.  Then she was able to drink a full bottle (her first one in a couple of days), and I put her down to play while I got Lynnie's breakfast.  I turned around a minute later, and Cece had already zonked out.  She just leaned forward and fell asleep at 8:20 a.m.  Poor girl was simply exhausted!

Who's Cute

Cecilia was looking pretty dang cute at violin lessons.  She's just such a happy baby!

What a difference 20 minutes makes!  Cece went from happily sitting on the diaper bag and playing, to totally zonked out for a nap.

I realized how tall Cece is this morning when I put this dress on her.  This is the dress Ellie was wearing the first time she stood up by herself.  She was 13 months old.  Cece is 9 months old.

Snow Day

Ellie and Lynnie were so excited for the snow and they just. had. to. play. in. it!  Grandma Camp gave Lynnie a snow art kit for her birthday, and I had to work pretty hard to convince them that there was just not enough snow yet to use that kit.  Playing in the snow lasted for approximately 4 minutes, after which we had hot chocolate.  I love it!

This has always been my favorite outfit in this size.  So glad that Cece is able to wear it!

Zebra Shoes

I love these zebra shoes, and that Cece can wear them now.

12-18 Month Clothes

The weather is finally turning cold, and it is time to get out the next size of clothes.  I thought that Cece would be swimming in the 12-18 month size, but they fit really well.  She is pretty tall!

Sweater Coat

Albert gave Lynnie this awesome sweater coat for her birthday.  It is lined with fleece and soft and warm.  Lu was excited to wear it to preschool.

Ellie gave Lynnie a set of legos with a dolphin in it, and Grandma Camp gave her a set with puppies.  Ellie happily helped Lynnie build built them after school.

Hanging Out

We got to church extra early today so we could get a good seat for the Primary Program.  The ward before us was also doing their Primary Program, and it went a little long.  We hung out with Daddy in his office while we were waiting.

Lynlee is 4 Years Old

Happy birthday to this sweet girl!  Lynnie Lu brings so much joy and sunshine into our family.

First Play

Greg was at his first basketball game of the year, Cece stayed home with a babysitter, and Ellie, Lynnie, and I went to the SCERA to see the girls' first live play.  It was a fun date for us, and even more fun because we got to sit by Uncle Todd, Aunt Rachel, and Grandma Wendt.

Haley from Adoption: Share the Love posted this on Facebook and I found it very interesting.  Just thought I would share.

Library Basket

What do you do when Lynnie has to go potty at the library?  Why, take a seat in the basket, of course.  It probably hopefully had a lot less germs than the bathroom floor.

Happy Girl

Cece loves that she can sit up, lay down, roll around, crawl a little, and sit back up.  A whole new world is opening up for her!  This is the first time I found her sitting up in her crib when she woke up.  She was pretty proud of herself.

Flower Clip

When I was in the shower, Lynnie put this flower clip in Cece's hair and then took a picture of her work.

Super Saturday

A fun Super Saturday for the Relief Society Activity.  I made a NOEL sign and two sets of Nativity blocks.  It was a fun day.
