Turkey Day

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We had a great 2 Thanksgivings actually. On Thursday Grandma and Grandpa came to our house and we had our first Thanksgiving meal at our house! It was lots of fun with lots of good food! Friday we went to my Grandparents house and had another Thanksgiving meal with my side of the family. MORE really good food and lots of fun with Mckayla, Abbey, and Summer running around like crazy! We love all our family so much and are so thankful for all the wonderful blessings in our lives!

Duncan trip

I know I am so behind with my posts, but here's some pics from our trip to Duncan last weekend. Mckayla LOVED the dogs! She also took her first couple steps while we were there!! She only did it a couple times and hasn't really done it since. I'm sure she'll take off soon enough!

The Last Monthly Growth

Here it is, the final monthly growth posting! I've been meaning to post it forever but the 1 year picture is so blurry, I wasn't too excited about it. It's nearly impossible to get a one year old to lay still!!!

8 days.............................1 month

2 months.......................3 months

4 months.................. 5 months

6 months..................7 months
8 months..................9 months

10 months................ 11 months
1 YEAR!!!!

It's just amazing how big she is and how much she's changed!

Yesterday Mckayla said another new word! She was crawling around on the air vents in just a onsesie with no pants and I told her that she needed pants on because it is ouchie on her knees, and I said ouch a couple more times then she just outright said "OUCH!" as clear as day! She said it over and over and repeats it most anytime we say it! So cute! I caught a little video of her saying it in the tub tonight after her stork toy basket lid had fallen on her head:

Another bathtime game; eating the washcloth (it's clean don't worry!)

And here's some other cute pics from the past couple days:
She loves her zebra!

Snacktime in her chair


I know I'm a little late getting a Halloween post done, but better late than never! Mommy had to work on Halloween :( so Daddy took Mckayla to meet Matt, Wendi, and Emily at the mall to play and do some trick-or-treating. Mckayla's Care Bear costume is so hot and she doesn't really like wearing it so he put her in her Abby Cadabby outfit that says "Fairy in Training" and is kind of like a last-minute costume. Emily's little witch outfit looks so cute, I wish I could have seen the girls myself but at least Daddy got some cute pictures for me!

You can't really see Emily's face here but apparently they were having a yell-off!

There were a lot of pictures with Mckayla's mouth wide open like this and Chris said that's because she was talking and yelling practically the whole time!
