Cam gets baptized!

This past Sunday, we had Cameron baptized. It was a good time to do it since one set of grandparents were here to witness it.

Happy Birthday Kendall!

First of all, I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! We sure did!

We were supposed to have Kendall's birthday party the day after Christmas, but Grant woke up with what we think was a stomach bug. So for the sake of all the families coming to the party, we decided to cancel it. Thankfully, we were able to reschedule it for yesterday.

We had a great time, and as you can see from these pictures, the kids really enjoyed themselves.

Photo Challenge - Day 21

Kendall is just a few days shy of her 2nd birthday, and we're pretty excited about her party. It's a Curious George theme, because she's a little obsessed with him right now.

Anyways, on Saturday, I was running errands with Cameron, and Grant was running errands with Kendall. I had him go to Party City to pick up something for the party, and while he was there, he saw the Curious George masks. I came home before them, and when they came home, Kendall comes running in the door wearing her new mask. I just about died laughing. She was so proud of herself!

So here's my little monkey right after she came home.

And this was a picture that Grant took before they came home at the park.

And yes, she's wearing shorts in December. Don't be jealous.

Photo Challenge - Day 18

Okay, I'm a total loser when it's comes to this Photo Challenge. For what it's worth, I have been pretty busy lately. So that's my excuse, and I'm stickin' to it.

There's a story behind this picture. These billboards are everywhere around these parts. And Grant hates every one of them. He's annoyed that the girl in the picture doesn't look as enthusiastic as she should for someone who just lost so much weight. And now, they've given her a santa hat, which annoys Grant even more. So I finally had my camera with me, and was at a stop light, so I got a good shot of it, but the light turned green and I had to go. So it's not the best picture in the world.

Photo Challenge - Day 8

We had quite the storm last night. All day long it had been raining - which is pretty rare for here. Then last night came the wind. I knew our patio furniture took a good beating, because I could hear it moving all around. So when I got up this morning, this is what I found.

And I didn't feel like having a new post for this, but I finally finished up the Advent Calendar - so here it is. I followed these instructions.

Photo Challenge - Day 7

This little girl never ceases to amaze me. Of course, she sees Christmas trees all over the place, and we hadn't put ours up yet. I think I made a vague reference to us putting up our tree before she went to bed Sunday night. After she went to bed, we put it up, and set the train up.

Well, she must've heard that vague reference, because the next morning when I was getting her up, I asked if she knew what Mama and Daddy put up last night. She thought about it for a second and then said, "Tree." Her ability to put things together and remember things just blows me away! So this picture is of her seeing the tree for the first time. She helped me deocrate it afterwards.

Photo Challenge - Day 6

Unfortunately, Kendall hasn't warmed up to Santa any more this year since last year. In fact, she freaked out more this year than last year (if that's possible). Cameron didn't really know what was going on, but I'm sure next year we'll have a similar picture of her.

Here's some more pics from that night. It was at Ft. Mac, and they had snow this year, which was really cool, but by the time we got there, the snow was ice. Oh, and it was actually cold here. Poor Kendall was freezing her little tushy off - it was so sad, her little chin was quivering after about 3 minutes. Thankfully Melissa saved the day and loaned us Mookie's hat, which made a big difference.

Kendall also got to ride on the back of Mookie's stroller, which she really seemed to like until she fell off.

Photo Challenge - Day 5

Today, I had a little elf come and help me make cookies for our church Christmas party. That elf just happened to be named Kendall.

Officially, this is my picture for the DPP...

But I can't just stop there. Those of you who know us really well, know that we try not to give Kendall too much sugar. We figure she'll have plenty of time in her life to eat plenty of sugar, and since right now she's still relatively unaware of sugar, we just try to not give her any. That being said, this was a real treat for her. She got to lick the batter AND eat a cookie once it was out of the oven. I had to give my elf a reward for being such a big help!

Photo Challenge - Day 4

This is the advent calendar that I wokred on before we went to Pensacola. It's not totally done, that's why it's not a picture of the whole thing! Hopefully, I'll finish it up in the next few days.

Photo Challenge - Day 3

Okay, I didn't post a picture yesterday. What can I say - I was busy!

Anyways, this is my pile of Christmas decorations that I'm slowly working on putting up. And I haven't even thought about the tree yet!

The Lord's Prayer

I just have to brag on my daughter a little bit here. I don't know why we didn't start this sooner, but I started going over the Lord's Prayer with her a few times, and she's really picked it up quickly! I started out having her repeat the last word of every line, and now she says it by memory. It's pretty impressive!

Thankfully, she was in a pretty hyper mood and I was able to get her to do it on video for me. It's super cute. Plus, you can hear her cute little raspy voice from her cold that she's getting over.

Photo Challenge - Day 2

Here's my two little sweeties. Kendall just loves all over her little sis, and I love it.

Photo Challenge - Day 1

Okay, it's my first day of the Photo Challenge, and I'm already cheating. This picture was taken last Saturday, but we're on an airplane today flying back to Cali, so I think I should be fine, right?

Anyways, this was from our family photo shoot at Pensacola Beach.

Isn't Cameron the cutest little thing you've ever seen in a bucket?
