Merry Christmas!

This is one picture out of a very few that were actually taken on Christmas day. We are all still sick. Some of us have a nasty cold or sinus infection, some of us have fifths disease, and the lucky ones have both :/
Fifths disease in adult women is especially hard on your joints. It's like arthritis in all your important joints, wrists, knees, back and ankles.

Some highlights from Christmas included, the kids getting hamsters, I got an iPad2 and an antique milk box for our front porch. Reagan got lots of books and has been reading them like crazy. Lincoln got the game skylanders and now wants a skylanders birthday party. Tim got some nice clothes, gift cards and and even the Lego White House. It's now put together on our bookshelf.

Merry Christmas and a have a Happy New Year!!!

Visit with Santa

They finally got to sit on Santa's lap and tell him what they want for Christmas. Reagan asked for an Easy Bake Oven and Lincoln asked for Skylanders Wii game. McKinley tried to pull off her siblings and save them from Santa but she wasn't strong enough. She sure does love her big sister & brother.

Christmas Ornament

 I found an extra Christmas ornament that we gave out to our party guests.  
I thought it was a sweet gift to give out and super easy to make.  

I took some picture's of our Christmas tree just for fun, 
I could sit in there all day just enjoying the lights on the tree.  
I love Christmas!!

Winter One-derland

 McKinley's first birthday party!
Winter One-derland theme.
Pinterest really helped me out on this.  I'm not joking.

 The colors for the party were aqua & red.
I really liked how it turned out.
I had a groupon for the cake, so no I didn't make it.
I  did put her tutu skirt under the cake stand and  think it looks really cute!
I totally thought of that last minute.

My very good friend Nicole did the melting snow man cookies.

It was a lot of fun decorating and the best part is that it can stay up all month!

She or I should say the kids opened her presents.
Her first and best friend Ella was there too!
We love you Ella!!

I just love this picture.

She isn't to sure what is going on .
Still not sure.
Lets just say she loves cake!

 It was a great party and thank you to our family & friends for coming and celebrating
McKinley with us.

I forgot to take a picture but everyone got to take home a Christmas ornament with an "M" on it.
I will see if I can find a picture, because they were cute!

My Facebook status

Last December 1st I made an announcement at dinner that our baby could be born at anytime now. Tim made a correction and said that I could go into labor anytime after 6pm on Friday Dec. 3rd. At 7pm on Friday Dec. 3rd I started to have contractions and since I have had 2 previous c-sections we headed to the hospital to assess the situation. Fully expecting to be sent back home. Little did we know we were going to meet our daughter just after midnight on the 4th. What a joy & delight she is! Tomorrow we celebrate!!!
Walking the halls, waiting to see if the contractions would stop or if we were going to have a baby.

I am busy getting ready for McKinley's 1st birthday. Borrowed a white table cloth from my Mom, only to find out its actually a shower curtain. Not her fault, just funny. Will post pictures after the party....it's Sunday afternoon.
