I haven't taken many pictures lately which is strange for me. And a lot of the ones I have are with my phone, so they aren't good. But I wanted to post something on here. Looking at my pictures from the last week gives me motivation to do better.
We went to Chuck E Cheese last week with Laura and Brock and met up with Rebekah, Cilla and Duke who were in town. Those are some of my favorite people! We had a fantastic time, but I didn't take hardly any pictures!
Yesterday we had Play Group at the library. Aaron has been begging to go to the library. I feel like we lived there this summer, but didn't go at all in the fall.
It was great. My kids got on the computers for the first time. We have always just read, but they do have some great interactive things on the computers.
Abby playing music!
We were at Ann's house a couple of weekends ago. This is Aaron about to slide into a pile of wet leaves. Fun!
Playing outside when it was cold. I thought he looked so cute in his vest and gloves.
One month from today, our Baby Girl will be TWO! Impossible to believe. She still seems like our baby!
This is the invitation for her birthday party. It will actually be on her birthday. We are doing red and white hearts as a theme. Until she speaks up about birthday party themes, I'm going to be doing hearts since how easy is that with a February 15 birthday???
Abby is wearing 2T clothes, size 7 shoes and size 4 diapers.
She's gotten one new word, 'poop'. It's so funny. If she poops during her nap, when I go into her room she's pointing to her diaper saying 'poop'. Here are the words she has:
uh oh, oh, whoa, yes (yah), bug (buh), duck, out (uh), hello, apple, yuck yuck (yeh yeh), broken (bow), bow, Up (uh), Open (uh puh), More, Brother (brah tha), Woof Woof (woo woo), Bird (bow), book (ba), Bubble, No, Dad (Da), Bus (Buh), Mom (Ma), Ball (Ba), Balloon (Ba), Diaper (Duh Buh), Poop (Poo)

You can't see this shirt very well, but it has sequined snow flakes on it. I think it came from Kristi.

I thought this fuzzy sweater looked like such a snow bunny. I put a red bow in her hair to make it more Christmas-like. This was a bonus Christmas gift - Grandma Sheri got it for Leah but it was too small. Score!
Saturday December 29
Kim had bought Abby and Aaron matching Christmas PJs. We went to their house in the morning on the 29th for Christmas since we were gone over Christmas. We put the kids in their pajamas for a Christmas Morning Feel. This is Abby on her present...
And Aaron playing with his!
Sunday December 30
This green velvet dress was Katie Grace's. Looking back over the month I realized that my favorite outfits on Abby were all green. I remember Julie (KG's mom) telling me that Abby looks really good in green. I am going to remember that going forward!
Monday December 31
For the last day, Abby for a Santa's Lil Helper shirt from Kristi. What a cute helper she was.
We met Ann and the kids at Chuck E Cheese Thursday and had the best time! It was the first time Aaron did anything other than ride Bob the Builder and he was very into the games. Those are his tickets!
There was some game where you try to time when you hit a button to land on the highest number of tickets. Usually, it falls on the really low numbers. Aaron, of course, wasn't timing anything but kept hitting 100 tickets. He was so proud.
Lawrence was his buddy the whole time. Aaron didn't want a thing to do with me. Lawrence is SO good with my kids. All of Ann's kids are.
