Pearly Whites

After two years of wearing braces, Dalton is free! It was not always easy but he did it. He has to wear a retainer for 4 months straight and then just at night. He has been so good about taking care of everything that goes along with it. He is growing up so fast, I couldn't be prouder of my young man!

My early present

Dalton sat on Santa's lap!!! He wouldn't sit on Santa's lap last year because he said he was to big. I think he knew I was a little sad that Adalyn wouldn't sit on Santa's lap this year. I asked him why he had his picture taken this year and not last year, he said "mom, I did it for Adalyn".
Thank you God for sending your son and this one too!

Christmas already?

Yes it's true, I cant wait until Christmas! Dalton hasn't said much about opening presents but Adalyn ask everyday. So tonight after gymnastics I caved. They where so happy with their presents, it was worth begging Doug to let them open one. He says no more opening until Christmas, we'll see! :o)
She did talk to Santa tonight at dinner, hey, I'll take what I can get at this point. She said "see mom I did talk to him and I told him what I want and that's OK if I don't sit on his lap." Yes Miss Adalyn that is quite alright.

Wheres Adalyn

I took these pictures of Adalyn this morning before school. I finally got all the Christmas decorations up. Well the tree still needs a little tweeking. Adalyn helped with decorating and all the ornaments are in the same spot, right in front. :o) I'm hoping this is not the only picture I get of her and Santa this year, we'll see. I showed her last years picture and told her about all her friends that have visited the big guy in red. She says when its Christmas she'll visit him, not sure when that might be.
The cute pants she has on are a Livi Lu original. Lynn is so talented, stop by and she what she can make for you.

Singing, Cookies and Sleeping

Last night me and Adalyn practiced on making some cookies for Santa, and Santa approves. My child is such a JOY! I turn my head, she grabbed a beater and was singing her heart out. It was so stinkin funny! I'm not sure what she was singing, I don't think she knew either. That is what is so funny about her, she just makes it up as she goes along. Notice her attire, she picked it out. Hey, a girly girl cant make cookies with out a tiera can she?
I guess all that singing and baking wore her out. Dalton ask me if he could open a present since she was asleep to make it even. She noticed a couple of days earlier that he had one more present under the tree than her. Dalton, trying to being cleaver said I could save my money and just let him open a present, Ummmm, no, but nice try.
Some Adalyn funnies:
When she discovered all the present under the tree she said Santa didn't need to come to our house because we already have a lot of presents.
She sings We wish you a very Christmas, its so cute.
She also wants a Holly Pocket for Christmas.

Happy Birthday Angel

Happy Birthday Angel. There isn't a day that goes by that I dont think of you, how big you would be, how long your hair would be. What would your likes and dislikes be. The reason you where taken from us, I may never know. But I'm grateful for the short time we had. I know one day we will be together again, and what a glorious day that will be! Until then my precious angel, Happy Birthday!

A Thankful Thanksgiving

We had a nice Thanksgiving aside loosing Doug's mom earlier in the week. Although it was expected, its still never easy. Please keep him and his family in your prayers in the weeks to come.
We had a nice time at my moms new house. She is so appreciative, its heart warming to see. Me and Leslie headed out to Toys R Us at about 11 Thanksgiving night. Who's idea was it to open at Midnight anyway? Well, we got some great deals and Leslie even got a cold standing outside in 30 degree weather. I think it took me all weekend to get caught up on my sleep. I've started wrapping present and Adalyn is so funny to watch run in the house and check under the tree for new gifts. We have our first Christmas party this weekend and she is so excited to get to finally open one. I have a feeling the next 3 weeks are going to be long ones for a anxious 4 year old!
