Makin' a List, Checkin' it Twice

Catching up on all the Christmas activities, we've been having hots of fun!

Ready for winter! Elliott loves Grandma Roxanne.

Went to see Christmas lights with Grandma Roxanne, Katherine, Norman, Stephen, & Henry.

Elliott met Great Grandma Joy for the first time! She loved hanging out with Grandpa Erroll.

But her favorite activity by far, was watching a UFC fight with Daddy. Tom's man-cave was freezing! But Elliott warmed up with some french fries.

Give Thanks!

Elliott had a great Thanksgiving! She visited with her Great Grandpa Lewie and Great Grandma Ann. She had Henry feed her desserts when no one was looking (she loves chocolate pudding). She also caught up on her Bob the Builder reading.

Get a Haircut Hippie!

I've consulted Elliott's stylist and decided her combover was out of control. So we trimmed her up!

Here's Elliott before her makover, all draped up and ready to go!

No, she did not enjoy her salon experience.

She's like a brand new baby! She loved it so much she requested a picture with her favorite stylist.

Happy Birthday Patrick!

Pumpkin umpkin cheesecake instead of cake.

Pat turned 26 on Sunday. He had a great birthday with his family! Thank you to everyone who came and helped out. He got some great Office gifts and ties from the Rasmussen's and a car from the wife, so I've been replaced. He's in love with it!

Happy Birthday Patrick!!!

Stephen's made a new friend with Grandpa Leonard.

Sean & Christina, so cute & fun!

Candice & Trevor goofin around...or does his face always look like that?

Yes Peas!!!

So far Elliott is just like Mommy...she loves food. And when she's hungry, she wants it fast. That's our girl! We're two for two with a liking for both peas and carrots. And boy can she pack it in!

A Fairy Fun Halloween!

Elliott's first Halloween was spooktacular! She went to a church Halloween party where she met up with her friend Ashlyn (the cutest chicken we've ever seen!). Elliott looked cute all day in her pre-costume outfit, had fun with family, and tried to eat some candy. Next year we'll go trick-or-treating!

Nixon, You Got Served!

The Horn family has beat us to posting a video of their baby Nixon almost crawling! I have to admit I was waiting to give my baby a bath before I recorded her on the move so she didn't look like a hobo baby. Elliott has almost mastered crawling. She realizes rolling is sometimes a faster getaway from an older sister and admits that it is not her strength. Since Elliott does not have the need of a fast escape, she has practiced rolling but is focusing on learning to crawl. Let's do this Nixon!!! (check out the competition at

Our Blog is Up!

We're workin' it out and getting this blog done! We have spent the whole week crossing things off of our "To Do" list and we decided to cross this one off too! We will try to keep it updated with new entries and pics but we're not planning on going nuts and posting like two or three times a day... Rachel doesn't like anything I write... Or how i lay it out... In your face Rasmussen's and Horn's! Let the blog off begin...
Here's Elliott trying on her Halloween costume.
