  • loves taking a bath and splashing in the tub

  • rolling over both ways

  • loves standing up (with help, of course)

  • almost sitting up by himself

  • it plagued by teething and constant spit up (BOOOOO!!!)

Day 355

Guillermo Elf is in Poinsettia Bowl spirit! How bout them dawgs!!!

Day 354

Happy Birthday to me!!!

Yumm!!! Buttercups cupcakes to celebrate!

FYI- today is also Max's four month birthday! More on him after we hit up the doctor's office for his checkup on Thursday!

Day 353

Bailey and Max with their cousin Lily at Daddy's office Christmas lunch

(Lily was wearing Bailey's dress from her first Christmas- *sniff* *sniff*)

Day 352

We were very surprised to see where our silly elf Guillermo was this morning. He had strapped himself onto Daddy's remote control racecar (David got this as an office gift exchange gift and I can guarantee that this was the perfect gift for us.) Bailey had a little bit of success driving it herself, however she really liked it when Daddy drove it through her legs and chased her around! Guillermo had a wild ride! Max liked it too- Izzie, not so much!

Day 351- It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

The post many of you have been waiting for... pictures from our third annual Tacky Christmas Party!!! So sad that I didn't get pictures of everybody (I took some in the beginning and more folks arrived later so I didn't catch them. Okay, let's be honest- this was my first night away from the kids in a while and the daiquiri caught up with me!!!). We had tons of fun and everybody looked great (well okay, they looked pretty tacky, but that's what we were going for)! Since these parties are so popular these days, it's hard to find 80s sweaters unless you're willing to pay top dollar on eBay. So we had lots of homemade outfits this year (you know I'm a sucker for a glue gun!!!) Here's some highlights!

me and David (my homemade leg lamp costume won me the prize!!!)

David's sweatshirt said Official Mistletoe Tester on it so we made him a mistletoe Santa hat to go with it

Clint and Bridget

Wayne and Elise

me and E

Rebecca (in her homemade creation with battery-operated lights) and Jeromy

some of the gals!

Day 350- It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

Tis the season for Christmas specials on TV!!! I have DVRed all the old faithfuls, however Chippy The Elf on the Shelf was by far this year's favorite! (if I hear "Extravaganzalorious" one more time I think I'm going to scream!!!) Even little Max joined in watching with Big Sis!

Day 349- It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

Today was our annual Gingerbread Man Scavenger Hunt! Bailey enjoyed this so much last year that I saved the clues I made up and added some more for this year's hunt. Unfortunately, I forgot to buy the gingerbread cookies to have as the ending prize so our stuffed man had to suffice!
