Merry Christmas!

Christmas Morning we go to Aunt Francie's for some serious present madness. It was chaos, I have never seen so many presents in my life. Next year we are donating a bunch to a family in need.

She can open them herself! Uncle Jimmy & Papa are there to help just in case.

Aunt Kari got boxing gloves and a punching bag
Uncle Jimmy was so tired he took a nap under the tree!

Christmas night we go to Grandma Loves for round 3 of presents! We are so spoiled, next year let's really do a Christmas for another family, K.

So tired

December 23rd we had the Hunters' & Fancy over for dinner. I looked over at Leni and she was fast asleep in her high chair.

She's ONE!

These pictures are all out of order. I'm taking care of a sick baby today. Lennon got her first ear infection in both ears. Her right side is very bad and her ear drum might rupture and drain. Poor baby! Last night she seriously screamed for 7 hours straight, I felt horrible because I could not do anything for her. We ended up driving all over town at 2 am trying to find an all night instacare. They don't exist. We couldn't afford to take her to the ER and pay 200 bucks. At least when we drove around she slept. I think it felt better than lying down, because of the pressure in her ears. She is the best baby, so last night was terrible for us. Note to self: we are only having one child.

Anyway, on with her birthday pictures. Thanks to everyone that came & we are sorry the snow storm made it so some of you could not come. That is another joy of having a December birthday!

She got her big girl car seat!

Here is most of the people at the party. (notice our new tv that we are hanging over our mantle)

She ate some cake and blew out her first candle!

She went on a ride in her new wagon the next morning.

yummy cupcakes

Here she is opening some of her presents with papa

Look how cute I am! I'm ONE!

This is hilarious. I hope coldplay has to pay up!

In honour of my baby girl turning 1 in three days!

Last year on this day, at this exact time, I was going to the ER because I was "in labor". I had drank castor oil (just thinking about that stuff makes me dry heave) and walked around my neighborhood as fast as I could to induce my labor! Two different people recommended it to me & it worked for both of them. It sort of worked for me, but then my contractions were to close enough together so they gave me a shot of morphine and sent me home. Not to worry because I made my Dr. induce me 2 days later. Lennon was born after midnight so it was technically 3 days later. She is lucky to share her birthday with my cute niece Chloe (not to be confused with my other cute niece Chloe!)

Here are a few ultra sound pictures. I can't believe she is turning one. I can't believe that she was inside me & developed into a baby/person! I have an ultra sound from 6 weeks where she was just a circle blob with a tiny heart flutter. Biology is insane!


I was tagged.

Go to the 6th folder on your computer then post the 6th picture from it. Then tag 6 friends (I changed it from 5 to 6). Here's what I came up with. It's a sad & happy picture. I was lucky enough to go to Hawaii with my Grandma, Mama & brother in 2002. Here we are eating dinner at the Luau. Look how cute my Grandma is. My mom looks great too. And my brother is the sibling I think I resemble most. I think I look like the female version of him.

I tag:
and everyone else too
