We were all watching "The Grinch Stole Christmas" by the light of the Christmas tree...Essie couldn't take her eyes off of it!  Then the commercial came on and I heard snoring ....yep these three CRASHED!

Black Friday, etc.

So, alarms rang at 4 am on Saturday morning and Travis, myself, and my dad drug ourselves to Walmart to fight the crowds for those good deals.  I cannot even describe the scene...however 2 hours later we emerged exhausted and with a car load! In the pictures above Essie is wearing a nightgown/robe that I wore when I was a lil girl! I wish I had a pic of me in it as well!  I love that she's wearing my old clothes! :)

Essie did not partake in the event rather stayed at home with Nana...but she did wear her little black dress and boots in honor of black friday.  That afternoon my parents went home and Travis, Essie and I took a 3 HOUR was luxurious! 

We've pretty much just hung out the remainder of the weekend.  Yesterday Sarah & Matthew came over to watch the HOGS game and they took pics of us for our Christmas's just a glimpse...

And just some random pics from the weekend...

EARLY this morning my parents, niece Haley, brother, and Aunt Tammy all came up to our house for Thanksgiving.  It was the first time we'd have Thanksgiving here!  They prepared alot of the dishes before hand and transported them here.  I am planning on posting a bunch of recipes on my blog when I get the time!  Here are a few pics of my holiday's almost done inside!

We looked at all the black friday ads...we can't resist a good know.  Plus it's kinda fun getting up and around that early!

Just a few snapshots before we ate...

The table of foooooood....oh my heart!

Essie was such a BIG girl sitting at the table.

This is her thanksgiving beans, squash, carrots, and sweet potatoes.  She gobbled all those yellow & orange veggies right up...didn't care for the green one though!

After we ate...several people crashed....turkey comas.

Afterwards we dressed Essie and her cousin Haley in the matching Jammies I bought for CUTE are they? They LOVE each other!

So needless to say we had a great year essie looks forward to being able to eat REAL turkey! :)

20 Weeks!

Essie is 20 weeks old today!

We started the morning by trying pears for the first time ever...she wasn't so sure about them.  She's spit up like 6 times today (we've had to put on 5 different outfits) so I'm thinking maybe she's having a reaction to them???  She normally doesn't spit up at ALL.  hmmm.

She weighed in at a whopping 14 pounds 14 ounces today!  Almost a 15 pounder!  Her 3-6 mos. size clothes are getting a little too small...well too short at least!

I love being off work and home with her today!  She's so much fun at this age!  She just plays all the time!

She's learned to bite her socks and pull them off.  JOY!

Here's a sneak peek at her Christmas's not quite finished so I'm not going to show the whole thing just yet!
