Christmas Day

Abigail had a great Christmas day...we spent the morning at home and then went to Andy's parents house. We had a great time talking, eating and watching Abbie enjoy herself!

Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve was a wonderful day. We always go to my parents house and have a big family dinner. It is a great are some pictures from the day.

Santa made an appearance at the Christmas Eve party. Abbie sure was happy to see him! We all thought that she would instantly recognize it was her papa dressed like Santa, but she didn't seem to make the connection.

Abbie loved this fishing game!

Cold, cold, cold

Although we didn't get snow up our way this weekend, it was still very cold! Abbie was hoping for snow, but mommy was the one who was really disappointed we didn't get any. There is still a chance we will get some in a few days from now. Until then, Abbie is ready with her winter coat, hat and gloves:)

Grown-Up Tea Party

Every year my grandma has a Christmas tea party for her nieces. I always help her get ready and serve the courses. This year, Abigail got to join in and she had a great time. She loves having tea parties with her plastic it was neat for her to have a real fancy tea party.

Ginger Bread House

Abbie and mommy made a ginger bread house today. Abbie had so much fun, but liked eating the candy more than decorating the house. But she did a great job! I don't think the house will last long though, as she is eating the candy off the house as I write this:0 )

Christmas is coming...

Abigail is so excited about Christmas! She has been helping mommy decorate the house, go Christmas shopping, and has even helped wrap the presents. I love watching her play with the nativity set and tell the story of baby is so precious. Abbie has already had her Christmas photos taken...twice, and we are going to get our tree on Saturday. This truly is the most wonderful time of the year, and I am so happy I get to share it with Abbie!

Abigail's third Halloween was a success! She had a great time getting dressed up and going around town to visit family and friends, even though she was starting to get sick. Abigail dressed as a fairy princess and played the part well, waving her wand around saying "bibbity-bobity-boo!" I don't have many pictures, as I have yet to find my camera. I'm actually not expecting to find it, just patiently waiting for Christmas hoping for a Canon Rebel XS:) Abbie stopped at great-grandma's house after going to the Harvest party at church. Lucky for her, cousin Ruby had also stopped by, so they got to play for a little bit.

Disney World---the rest of the days:)

We have been back from our Disney trip for weeks, but I am just now getting around to adding the rest of the pictures. Abbie had such a fun time and talks about the trip every day. She wants to go back! Every time she sees an airplane, she says "look mom, the airplane is going to Disney World!". Or when we go somewhere in the car she says, "I'm going to Disney World!". So we are already planning our next trip...but it will be after the baby is born and we will be going to Disney Land, where it is much cooler and less humid!

This is a baby turtle we found while walking on the nature trail at the Wilderness Lodge. We saw so much was really neat:)

A snake we saw.

Disney World--Day 3

Our third day was spent at Epcot. This park is much slower paced, as there aren't many things Abbie can do. We enjoyed walking around the different countries. Abbie stopped at every fountain so she could get her hands and feet wet and throw coins. We have found that Abbie feels much better and isn't so cranky when she is cooled down. A really nice wind picked up in the afternoon/evening and felt so was just what we all needed. It was funny to see locals (or people use to this awful heat) wearing sweaters and longs pants!!!

Disney World--Day 2

Our second day at Disney was spent at the Animal Kingdom. Abbie enjoyed seeing all the animals...we had a great view of the rhinos, lions, giraffes, monkeys, and zebras on the safari ride (plus lots of other animals). Abbie is still hesitant to ride on any rides...that Snow White ride really messed her up:( Hopefully it will get better throughout the week. In the evening, we had reservations for a dinner show at the Wilderness Lodge. It was called the Hoop-de-doo Musical Review. It was a lot of fun and Abbie loved being able to make as much noise as she wanted...screaming, clapping her hands and banging her fork on the plates!
