I want to remember...

Jillian is saying a couple things right now that I want to remember.

First...when she thinks something is exciting, funny, crazy, etc...she opens up her mouth really wide and says "Oh my ga!" It cracks Frank & I up because she uses it in context perfectly. Of course we're working on turning it into oh my gosh...

She is saying one more thing that we think is hysterical... If you ask her what her name is she says "me!" Then if you ask her if she can say Jillian she says "me!"

Such a fun age!

All caught up!

I think I'm all caught up from Christmas now! I've added several posts (5 I think...) and a few slideshows, too. If you click on the slideshow button at the bottom of the image, you should be able to view them. Phew! Glad to have that over with!

Visiting the "Cucks"

One day during Christmas break Frank and I decided to take Jillian to the park to feed the ducks, or "cuck"s as Jillian says. She had a blast! She couldn't get enough of running up and down the boardwalk. Of course, I took that opportunity to play with my new camera!

Christmas Day 2010

On Christmas Day Frank and I woke up early to get started on our traditional Christmas brunch that we make for our families. Everyone came over at around 9:00 a.m. and we enjoyed a great breakfast. We then exchanged gifts and watched Jillian play with all her new loot. Jillian is so blessed to have grandparents that love her so much!

That evening my parents came back over to have Christmas dinner. Frank and I were pooped after our day!

I have to say this has to be my favorite Christmas yet. It is SO much fun watching Jillian have a blast learning about Christmas and seeing it through her eyes. She was so scared of Santa Claus before Christmas, but after he brought her toys, all she talks about is "HoHo."

Christmas Eve 2010

I've created a few slideshows of all the pictures I took over Christmas. I took quite a few because I got a new camera!!! First up is Christmas Eve...

On Christmas Eve we hung out most of the day at home. Frank's grandmother came to stay with us and to spend time with Jillian. We were so happy to have her! That night we went to my Aunt Kathy's. This is a Christmas tradition. I think Aunt Kathy mentioned that it was the 32nd?? time they have hosted Christmas Eve for the family!

New Lipstick

One of Jillian's new presents was an easel with a chalkboard and dry erase board. On New Year's Eve we ran to the store to pick up something to bring to the party we were attending. When we are at HEB Jillian always has to get Buddy Bucks to hit the button on the machine. This time she was an instant winner and won more chalk. When we got home from the store Frank couldn't stop laughing when he went to get her out of the car. This is what he saw...
Someone decided to try out her new "lipstick!"

Hopefully not a future career...

She requires some form of "stage" to "perform" for us. We call her our little table dancer...

I know it has been forever since I updated the blog and I have a TON of pictures to post, but....

I'm struggling to stay afloat right now. I'm hoping to get everything updated and posted this weekend. I'm so excited because I got a new camera for Christmas and I want to share GOOD photos for a change!
