Christmas Cookies

I made a plate of cookies for our neighbors. I tried a few new recipes this year.

These were my favorites. They're called peppermint snowballs and they were delicious. I also liked the molasses creams a lot too.

Baby's First Christmas

Sooooo big!

Trevor and Ashley came over with their new puppy.

Our little climber

Jude really gets around now. We are suddenly having to start moving stuff off our lower shelves. He pulls himself up on everything now and also likes to climb on whatever he can reach. He keeps me on my toes:)

Bathtime Fun!

Bathtime is another one of Jude's favorite things to do. He loves to lie on his belly and kick his legs splashing water everywhere.

This post is for my sister Melissa.....

Melissa let me use her exersaucer for Jude and he LOVES it, which means I love it cuz it buys me some time to get some work done around the house:) So thank you Melissa.

"I new I shouldn't have eaten that extra helping of baby food....."

We haven't gotten a baby gate yet so in the mean time we've been using a chair to block off the kitchen. This doesn't make Jude very happy since one of his favorite things to do is to play in the dog's water dish. He tried very hard to squeeze his way through.

Helping Daddy put up the tree...

Hanging the first ornament....

having second thoughts about hanging the ornament......

deciding to eat the ornament instead......


We went to Knoxville for Thanksgiving this year. All of my family, except my brother Daniel and his family, were there. There were my parents, 5 children, 4 in-laws and 11 grandchildren. Oh yeah, and my grandpa. So it was quite chaotic, but it was fun!
