Addyson's messy room after ChristmasOpening her new baby doll that Pa, Nana, and the boys got her.

Riding in her new Cozy Coupe.

She loves to push her babies in her stroller...

Taking video with our new Flip. It takes awesome videos...

Christmas this year was a whole lot different from last year! Addyson was really into the whole opening gifts and excited about what she got. Other than me being sick all Christmas, everything was wonderful. On Christmas Ever we went to Jimmy's parents to have Christmas with his Grandparents and Aunt. We ate a big dinner and opened gifts too. Addyson did a really good job opening her gifts. She had to make sure that every little piece of paper was off the gift before she went on to the next one.

After we had gotten home on Christmas Eve it was time for Jimmy and I to be Santa for the first time! We were so excited about putting her new toys under the tree. Mom and Dad and the boys came over Christmas morning to watch Addyson open her gifts. When she first got up she didn't pay no attention to her gifts, but then she finally saw them and got excited! Mom fixed breakfast for all of us also. When I woke up Christmas morning I was running a high fever so after Addyson had finished opening her gifts I went and rested so I would feel better for the rest of the day! Later on that day we went to Mom's to eat finger foods and open gifts. Addyson loved her new Cozy Coupe, that Nana and Pa and the Boys got her! After we got done opening gifts the boys all went to see Sherlock Holmes, while me mom and Addyson stayed back home and rested! All and all our Christmas was really good. Wish that I would have got a whole lot more pictures than what I did, but just did not feel very good at all. Hopefully next year all this sickness will stay away!

Christmas Get-Togethers

Man has this weekend been busy. We have had a weekend full of Christmas get-togethers with friends and family. On Friday my friends from high school came here. We were suppose to eat at our house but with all of the sickness going on around here (oh yeah by the way we all have had a virus this week on top of all this crazyness right before Christmas) we thought it would be a better idea to just go and get something. So we went and got a bite to eat and then came back to our house to open gifts. We had such a good time Addyson got a ton of cute stuff from Aunt Tink Tink and Aunt Allison.

On Saturday afternoon we had Christmas with Jimmy's family on his mom's side. Addy loved on her Nanny real good while we were there. I know that just made her day with them sweet little arms wrapped tight around her neck hugging as hard as she can. Just love when she does that! It is the sweetest thing.

On Saturday evening we had my work Christmas party. Jess made some really awesome food! Everything was so wonderful. We all had a good time playing Apples to Apples and just spending time with everybody.

Sunday night was our Christmas play at church. Addyson found her a new little friend after the play his name is Cooper and he is just as cute as he can be.

This weekend was busy, but great. The best times are the times that we spend with our family and friends. So glad we got to spend time with everyone this weekend. Looking forward to these busy few days before Christmas!

A New Addition to The Family... Lily

Pa, Nana, and the boys got a yellow lab puppy. Her name is Lily and she is beautiful. We went and visited her last night. She was a little bit scared at first, but warmed up to Addyson really quick. I am sure in no time they will be into everything together, partners in crime!

Christmas Tree Decorating

Thanksgiving Day
Dad and Alex in their Chick-fil-a shirts...

Addyson loves wearing my scarf...

Checking out the tree...

I hope that everyone had a good Thanksgiving! We had a wonderful one. Ate lots of great food and spent time with family. We also put our tree up the other day and Addyson has just loved looking at it. I so thought that she was going to rip every ornament off (which I wouldn't put it past her yet, it has only been up two days!) We put the tree up while she was in bed because if she saw us putting the ornaments on it she would think it was ok to touch them and take them off. When she saw it for the first time decorated her mouth fell open and got really excited. She loved it!

Just a Virus

Well Addyson had her first really really high fever. Last night she ran a 103.6 fever all night long. It finally broke this morning when we gave her a bath. We took her to the doctor today and they ran flu and strep tests on her and they were both negative. The doctor says that she just has some type of virus. Thank goodness! Hope that she will be better by Thanksgiving.

An Imaginary Tea Party

So I just had to write about this tonight! It was the cutest thing ever... Addyson and I went back to her room to play for a little while. Her tea party set was sitting on her table so I sat her up in one of her chairs and I sat in the other one and I acted like I was pouring her tea into her cup. With out me saying anything to her she pick up the cup and and made a sipping noise! I was thinking what an imagination she has, but that was not the end of it. I handed her one of the little cakes and she made a chewing noise. As far as I know Jimmy and I (or anyone else) has never showed her how to do that! She never ceases to amaze me! Wish I had pictures of this moment, but didn't not want to ruin it by getting up to get my camera : ( I just love this sweet baby girl so much : )

Our Trip to Springfield

On Saturday Mom, Jessica and I took a trip to Springfield to go to the Antique Barn. I went looking for an old trunk and found just what I was looking for. Jess got a really cute old orange quilt. While at the Antique Barn the people who work there was telling us about a good restaurant right up the street called The Depot. So we headed over there. The food was really good! We all had such a good time... Can't wait for our next trip...

We then went to Jimmy's mom and Dads. Addy got Teddy Grahams, Goldfish, and bananas. She got all the goodies a one year old could ask for on Halloween!
