Halloween 2009 (I know...this was SO last week!)

I have to be honest. Sometimes I hate blogger. Why does it take so long to upload photos?? And why in the world does it upload them in the reverse order that you wanted??

I digress....

I finally present to you (in reverse order) Addi's first trick-or-treat and MRCC Fall Festival.
She had such a great time. She knew exactly why we were there, and didn't waste any time on small talk!
Daddy and his butterfly. See, wasting no time.
Kissing cousins
Just before the big-event.
Total concentration. She loved this art-project, and was so proud of her final masterpiece
Addi, Jaylen, and Vivian (otherwise known as the "triplets") 23 months
Addi and sister Viv
First time in our costume. We were a little nervous how she would respond to the something covering her head, but she LOVED it!
This was such a fun Halloween! Can't wait until next year!

Pumpkin Patch 2009

I just love the fall! Rich and I met Mandy and her girls at the Pumpkin patch last week. We all had a great time. If you haven't been, I highly recommend it. They had a great little petting zoo and hay-ride. On the way out, you get to pick out your own little pumpkin.

Already telling secrets.

I love this guy!

Such a special friend and mommy.

Always a Daddy's girl

Addi's first time to see or touch farm-animals. We really should get out more.

My favorite kid in the whole-world!

How does a Dinosaur say Goodnight??

This is Addi's favorite book to read before bed. She is so cute!! My favorite part is at the very end. It's hard to tell in the video, but she always leans in to kiss the dino. Sweetest girl ever!

Returning from hiatus...

I know, I know...I am a horrible blogger. A lot has happened in the last two months to occupy more of my time. A few of you know that my husband was laid off work at the beginning of May. He had been with Hertz for 10 years. This came as a huge shock to us, but we are doing okay. For the time being, he has decided to take this time to stay home with Addisyn. So far it has worked out wonderful, but we definitely covet your continued thoughts and prayers during this transition in our lives.

On a lighter note, we are all happy, healthy, and enjoying every moment that we have watching our little girl grow!! She is incredible! May and June were crazy at our house. Since coming back from our vacation in May, I have hosted 3 baby-showers. We also celebrated my birthday, our 10 year wedding anniversary, and father's day. And just to make things a tad more complicated, our hospital shifted to Electronic Medical Records on June 1st (if you have ever experienced this transition, you will appreciate the stress that is involved!). It has been a super-stressful couple of months. Again...would love your prayers.

Here are some sweet pictures of Addi and her friends over the last couple of months. I promise that I will try to be better at blogging this summer!

The longest picture-post ever.

The long awaited Myrtle Beach/Hilton Head pictures! We had an amazing time. Addi did great! The weather was perfect! We seriously never wanted to come home. The only glich we ran into was missing our connecting flight in Atlanta on our way home, which turned into a four-hour layover in the dreaded Atlanta airport. Made ten times worse by me accidentally dropping Addi's sippy-cup while trying to make a mad-dash off the first plane. A one-year old without a sippy-cup = Unhappiness. Thank goodness we sprung for the portable DVD player before we left! saved us. Anyway, hope you enjoy the pictures.

Addi waiting so patiently for our plane Addi - Not drinking Coke Zero
Loving the ocean-view She could have stayed here all day.

First trip to the beach.
A rare moment that she actually WANTED to be held.
This was the lazy-river in our hotel. We seriously floated for two hours one day. So fun!
Happy girl.

Up to no good.
