..... someone who makes me laugh every time I talk to her. She is also up there on the list of friends I have known FOREVER (well, 24 years to be exact). That is my friend, Debi (who moved back to Ohio so I don't get to see her very often). Now I don't usually do a big post for all of my friend's birthdays...just every now and then or maybe if it's a big one. BUT....back in October I posted this Happy Birthday post for Beth. Well, I immediately got a phone call from Debi....saying that SHE wanted her own post on her birthday too. And she has reminded me no less than 10 times since.
So Debi....this is your Happy Birthday post and here is your gift of laughter: bulletin board duck, visiting Aunt Mert in the nursing home, "Oh $hit...he's home", me sitting in the rocking chair at CC firing off questions to you, your sister telling me how cute my "granddaughter" is, "BITCH", homemade painted clothes for Shan and Jen, me trying to make you "remember" people from the past, and of course we can never forget........"EWWWWW" (Jeremy).
We took our annual Christmas trip to KrispyKreme. They have the cutest holiday donuts. And of course they are to die for yummy!!!! I decided it would be kind of cool to let Addi wear the same exact outfit that she wore last year. I can't believe it still fits her. She is a little less chubby and maybe a tad taller but other than that....she hasn't changed much.
......to get a Christmas Tree we go. Keith finally won out and persuaded me to get a real tree. It's not that I was against the idea of a real tree....I just liked the convenience of my pre-lit artificial tree. But since half of the lights went out on it last year (a week before Christmas when it was fully decorated) it was time for a new tree so I decided to give it a try.
A rare peaceful sibling moment!
See it didn't last long. Addi said ..."pick this one" and....
Drew said, "No, pick this one". "Or this one!!". Making sure it passes the smell test! We finally found the perfect tree! TIMBER!!! Gotta haul it to the car! And off we go!
Since we just took our annual trip to ride the Pink Pig...I thought I would post this pic of the kids from December 2007. They all look so little and cute! Not sure what is wrong with Holley (scared, maybe?) but I can just about bet that Drew is pouting because he is not riding in the front seat! Fun Times!
You all know about my obsession with dressing Addi. I just can't get enough of her clothes cuteness. Well, I am a member of a clothing message board and my clothes obsession doesn't even come close to matching some of those ladies!
They have started a challenge to take a picture of your child every day and post all of their Christmas attire! We don't have enough actual Christmas clothes to last the whole time but if you add in winter: snowflakes, snowmen, penguins, etc.......we are totally in!
I have posted a little slide show at the top of my blog which I will "try" to update as much as possible to add her newest outfits! I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
We took our annual trip to Lenox to ride the Pink Pig! It is kind of cheesy, but still cute too! Addi LOVED it. It was nice to go early because there was virtually no line to wait in. We have gone before when we waited an hour to ride. Yeah...I know! See her little face in the mirror??? So cute! I LOVE to plan fun Christmas outings!! We stay busy pretty much the whole month of December! Fun Times!!
