Happy 8 Months!

My Harper bug was 8 months old on the 14th!  She is growing up so fast and it makes me a little sad! 
Here are a few things she started doing over the past month.
-Crawling EVERYWHERE!!
-Pulling up and cruising on the furniture.
-She gets brave, let's go of furniture, and stands on her own for a few seconds.
-Wave and Clap
-Push away her baby food and beg for whatever we are eating.  She did try pancakes, noodles and small (I mean they were tiny) pieces of Chick-fil-a nuggets.
-She has mastered MaMa, Dada, and BaBa (bottle)

Happy 8 Months Harper!!!

At The Allen House....

I just realized that it has been a few days since I blogged.  This is what we have been up too.....

-Cootie and Candyland have been played a few times.  It took the four of us (Me, J, L and D) forever to play Cootie!!  Every time Dax got to add a piece to his Cootie body, he would yell "I won, Give me Five!" So cute!

Friday Night, Lani and Dax had a camp out in our bedroom floor.  

Saturday, we helped Alyssa Celebrate her 6th Birthday. 

Buzz: Every time he would jump, he would yell "To Infinity and Beyond"

Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.  Well we have watched movies, ate a lot of snacks and played in the snow!!

Lani with her home made snow boots.  At least they kept her feet dry! :) 

Such a cutie!

I've got my mind on the water, my mind on the sand!!!

I can handle the snow.  I actually want it to snow one more time.  But I want the sun to melt it quickly and the temp to be around 75 degrees.  Lani and Dax are ready to play outside on a more regular basis.  Oh and how much fun is Harper going to be in the pool this year?!?!  Can't Wait!!!

Because I'm the Favorite :)

I promise, this is my last Christmas post!  Christmas morning, after the kids see what Santa brought and after we open our presents, we head to my Grandma Brown's house.  We have been going to Grandmas Brown's on Christmas morning my entire life.  We only changed it one year, because everyone in our family had the flu!  The only other thing that has changed is the time.  When I was little, we would get there around 8:30.  Now everyone comes in around 10:30!

Lani and Laira is their matching zebra print 

Dax and Jace.  Dax likes the fact that there is another boy around.  Dax was the first boy in ~ 35 years on this side of the family when he was born. 

Christmas Day Night, we head to my aunt Betty's house.  Betty is my dad's sister.  My dad dies 9 years ago and ut is such a blessing that my mom still attends this Christmas celebration.  She has remarried and everyone welcomes Rick, Emily and Scott and I love that!!   

Me and Harper - Her First Christmas was a White Christmas!!!

My dad was a big fisherman!  This was a fishing lure he made and me and my mom gave these out the first Christmas after he passed away.  I didn't notice it on Betty's tree.  Emily was playing with my camera and took this picture.  It was a nice surprise to see as I was looking through all my pics!

Now for the funny stuff.  Kayla (my cousin) and I have always had this running joke about who is the favorite grandchild. (By the way, it is ME!! :)  This is a picture of my MawMaw, sneaking a peak of the present I made her!

This is Kayla's reaction to MawMaw's gift!

Betty and Emily breaking out their Dance moves on the Wii, with Just Dance 2!!

I Love Santa!!

Christmas morning was a lot of fun this year!  Zeke (Our Elf on the Shelf) only had good things to report to Santa, and in return, Santa was good to us! 

 Lani's gift's from Santa!  She loves her Unicorn pillow pet!  It was basically the only thing she asked for this year!

 Dax was super excited about his Buzz light year and his fire truck!!!

 Harper had fun with her new toys too!

And this is what Santa left me....A Canon Rebel Camera!  I <3 Santa!  These picks were taken with my old camera, but I will post new camera pics soon!!
