December 09 Photo Challenge!

Last year, I participated in the Photo Challenge, and I decided to do it again this year. Join me, won't you?

December Photo Project

Family Pictures!

We've been having a fantastic time here in Pensacola for Thanksgiving. Something that made it even more special was having my side of the family's pictures taken on the beach.

You can check some of them out here...oh, and if she gets over 20 comments on our post, we'll get a free gift! I might be biased, but they are beautiful pictures.

Knott's Berry Farm

For most of the month of November, Knott's Berry Farm is free for military. We took advantage of that on Veteran's Day, which kind of turned out to be the worst day to go. It was so packed! But we still had a good time. We spent our time there exclusively in Camp Snoopy, and Kendall loved it! This was the first time she could really go on rides - they even had some rides she could do by herself, which was a little frightening for me. She ended up going on two by herself. She's such a big girl now!

We were watching Throwdown with Bobby Flay on the Food Network, and saw an episode that featured Pink's Hot Dog Stand in Hollywood. So while Grant was still on paternity leave, we decided to go up there and try it out. Kendall and I made sure to dress in pink for the occasion.


Kendall absolutely loves her new little sister. She hugs on her and kisses her constantly. When Cam cries, Kendall tries to make her stop by holding her hand, and patting her head. She's so sweet with her, it brings tears to my eyes sometimes.

Things have been going really well with two! I've been really suprised and blessed. Don't get me wrong - we've had some moments. Like the time I took both girls to Trader Joe's. It went so well there, that I thought I could make a trip to Target also. That was too much. Once we were finished, I was trying to leave the store, but Kendall wanted to sit in the chairs at the Starbucks. I figured instead of having her throw a fit about not being able to sit in the chairs, we'd go sit there for a few minutes.

She ended up hitting her head on a table, which started a screaming fit. Which started Cameron screaming, too. Cameron was in the Moby, but I ended up having to pick Kendall up and carry her on my hip out of the store, because she refused to walk. You should've seen all the sympathetic gazes I was getting. I became "that mom."

But really, those incidents are few and far between. I've been blessed with two little sweeties, and I love it.

Playing Catch Up

I know I've been a blog slacker lately. So the next few posts will be catch up on what we've been up to since Halloween.

Trick or Treat

We were pretty excited about Kendall being old enough to go trick or treating this year. Before Cameron came, I made them both matching tutu's, and bought semi-matching outfits from Target. I think they looked pretty cute, myself, but I might be a little biased.

At first, Kendall didn't quite know what to make of the whole trick or treat thing, but she got the hang of it pretty quick, and even though she didn't ever say trick or treat to anyone but us, she got pretty brave about the whole candy-getting thing.

We even ran into Mookie, and they were two of the cutest little besties I've ever seen!
