I'VE heard this saying but never thought it would become the family THEME...... The "PLAY" part definitely takes precedence. We love ALLEN!!!!!

New backpack

Addie got a new backpack from Gammy for Christmas and she loves it.  I put it on her back and she would barley let me take it off to finish dressing her.  She wore it the whole morning.  It was so cute to see her strutting around with her little pack.  I didn't even get to due her hair, so it's kinda wild.

Christmas in New Mexico

Christmas in New Mexico was so much fun.  We got to spend time with Gammy and Pops, go to the airport in Durango and see Todd get home from his mission, visit with nanny and Papa, play with Sofi and Ruby and of course feed the chickens every day we were there.

Busy at Play

Sometimes we're happy, sad and even mad, but we sure have a good time.  I can't believe how big this little girl is getting.  She has quite the feisty personality...maybe she gets that from her mom!!

Cold Days and Dancing

 It has been really cold the last few days.  Meaning it hasn't reached above 20 degrees.  So we've been enjoying the warmth of home and of course DISNEY MOVIES!!!!! 

 Addie eating her snacks while making herself comfy!!

Playing with toys and singing...mommy you need to throw that binky away!!!

She sure loves her blankie

She's dancing to the music at the end of Tangled! I have a video but it didn't want to download today.

Her and maggie playing fetch.  Yes, she loves to try to get it before the puppy.
 We sure love this little busy body.  She's getting to big for her breeches.

I haven't gotten around to getting a haircut since July and let me tell ya I was ready.  My ends were damaged and I just needed a lift.  Well I don't know if this happens to many but every time I change my style just a bit it never looks like the picture of the haircut I give them, (I saw a friends picture from high school on facebook and wanted a cut like hers) and I'm just trying to figure out why????  I know all hair is different and all but can't you get pretty close....a professional should I think.  I think if you pay over $25 dollars for a haircut it ought-a be one you ask for.

My haircut isn't bad and I will be able to work with it and in about 2 weeks it will be a lot better.  This just happens every time.  Maybe I'm the difficult one!!!!  :) :)  I thought I better start journaling more of my thoughts.  Next thought will be happy. ha ha

This is the cut I was trying to get

Thanks Dani for the haircut Idea!!

I've been MIA for a bit but I'm back

I lost my camera for a few weeks and we finally found it.  It was tucked under the couch in a hidden pocket.  I know I looked there but I guess I didn't do a very good job.  I am usually better at finding things like that, but this time it was Allen!  I'm just glad we found it.  So her is what's been going on lately.

Addison has become a Momma's girl lately.  For the last few weeks since her Morales have been coming in the only person she wants is me...I'm not liking it to much.  It's hard carrying her around all the time with my ever-growing pregnant belly.

Addie is still loving her baths.  She starts off in the shower with daddy and then when he gets out, he plugs the tub and she finishes up with her bath.  We have to keep a little water flowing so she can play in it.  I think that's her favorite part right now

Right now she has three favorite things, reading, watching Tangled and eating!!!!!!!  She really enjoys helping me with the laundry especially folding her cloths.   

Lately she loves to stand up on the mirror and look at her hair.  We sit in the sink to do her hair.  Sometimes she brushes her teeth and other times she  puts lip gloss on.

She will try anything.  I was making pasta and she wanted a piece of red bell pepper.  I gave it to her, she ate it and wanted more.  Then she ate raw cauliflower.  She had a harder time chewing it.What a good girl.  

She is getting more and more attached to her blanket.  I don't care if we drag it all over but it won't last long that way because the blanket she chose is so thin and oh what am I going to do????

It doesn't matter how cold it is outside, we go for walks and she stays bundled up.  She's just glad to be outside.

She has really enjoyed baby dolls lately.  I know what Santa is bring her this year......

We still love doing all different kinds of things to this little girls hair.  She agrees for the most part...when she doesn't mom doesn't give in either
