Merry Christmas

Lainy had such a big Christmas this year! She was so excited, didn't really get that Santa brings presents but she got the present part. She was very excited to get her new kitchen set and all the accessories. She came around the stairs cautious but was excited when she saw what was in the living room. She was exhausted and took an early morning nap without any complaining. On Christmas eve she opened presents from Bonnie/Freddie (helmet for her scooter), Mamaw & Papaw Vest (recliner) and then Granny/Grandpa Vest (ironing board/baby doll). That night we spent time with friends and Lainy played with her friend, Rain. We then headed to WV on Saturday and stayed for a couple days to spend time with Memaw, Papaw, Jenny, Chris and Henry. Lainy enjoyed her new horse, hanging out with cousin Henry and playing with all the kids at Granny McLaughlin's House. She had a great Christmas, thank you to everyone.

Hanging Out

Our electricity went off again Saturday night at about 6 and didn't come back on until 2:30 today. We huddled downstairs around the wood stove and amused ourselves. I guess Lainy had decided she had enough of us this weekend and put her boots on saying she was leaving!! She changed her mind and came back.

Winter Wonderland

So like most people we are enjoying the snow! We have about 13 or 14 inches out there. The electricity went out about 1 am and just came back on. Lainy & I were huddled around the woodstove all morning while Eric plowed out the driveway. After the electricity came back on we decided to go out since we could now warm up when we got back it! Lainy loved it and did not want to come back in for lunch. I'm sure we'll do a couple more rounds outside later.

Happy Holidays

Lainy turned 22 months on Thursday and growing up a little each day. We had our first snow fall on Saturday and she got dressed up and went out for a little while but wasn't so keen on the snow. We then went to pick out our tree today, she had lots of fun but could hardly move in all her clothes. Later this evening we decorated the tree and she loved it. She wanted to help and put all the ornaments on the same branch! Fun! Fun!

Big Girl

Last night after giving Lainy a bath she told me, "pee pee, Mommy." So we tried the potty and I couldn't believe it, she went. She was so proud of herself and wanted me to keep clapping and yelling for her. I can't believe it:-(

Pumpkin Patch

We went to the Cinderella pumpkin pumpkin patch today and enjoyed it, despite the cold weather. Lainy picked out some pumpkins and became a mouse for a day!
