Christmas Pictures

CI had a moment of panic when I realized that Christmas was right around the corner, meaning I had to get moving on getting our Christmas Cards put together! I didn't really trust myself to take her pictures for the card, so I called my friend up, Chris Viera with Christian Viera Photography, to help me out. I must say, although I'm a little biased, they turned out great!
Callie wasn't so happy about having to pose for the pictures at first...

But after a minute she was a willing participant.

She rarely smiled for him, but she's still super cute with her serious faces :)

One of my favs

After she was finished we played. I thought the camera was put up, but as you can see it wasn't. I don't really like taking pictures when it's cheesy, but these are actually kind of cute!
FINALLY a smile!

Thanks Chris for taking pictures of us! We had a great time hanging out and hope to see you soon!

And we're off!

Callie and I headed to the park the other day for some fun, and boy did we have it! We have the really great park not far from our house which gives me some exercise, wears Doc out, and Callie LOVES it, so it's a win win! I also wanted to share that she is now off and walking. Yes, my little baby girl can no longer be contained very easily. It's so amazing to see her doing it, I thought I'd share some pics on it and our trip.... :)

She loved playing in the dirt....

but when we started to eat it, we changed activities.

Here we go!

We went to swing first, and she of course had the best time! She loved being in the swing when she was a "baby" so this was the closest she's been to that in a while.

Cute face :)


We had a great time and she loved having the freedom to walk all around and me not having to worry about stairs, tables, and the like. Can't wait to go back!

Happy Halloween- Finally!

Finally getting around to this, sorry!

Halloween was great! Friday night we went to Boo at the Zoo with some friends. Although it was a little crowded we had a great time. Callie came as a little sheep, and here comes the funny story I posted about last time. So, I was determined to make Callie's costume, don't know why, just thought I should! I spent 6, SIX, hours sewing it together one Sunday. I was so excited to have finished it I made her try it on at that time only to find out, it was WAY to small. So small in fact that I ended up having to cut her out of it, yes I said CUT her out of it. She was crying the whole time too, poor thing! Thankfully I bought enough fabric to send to the tailor at the store so she could put it together for me, yay for backup! The only "homemade" piece was her little hat with ears and a bow, which she hated and we only got one picture with her in it, oh well. Here she is in her little outfit, cute!

Trick or Treating with Daddy!

Here are the kids, so cute! Callie as a sheep, Henry as a Koala, and Emory as Little Bo Peep. Watson, not pictured, was another little sheep- thankfully Emory never lost them that night. :)

Little Bo Peep not really sure what to do with this little sheep! :)

Family Pic!

Vaughn and the kiddos!

It was great to celebrate Halloween with little Mac! Can't wait until next year when she can
Trick or Treat for real!
