CHRISTMAS here we come!!

I finally got around to putting up Christmas decorations yesterday.. I usually put them up on the day after Thanksgiving, but were were shopping half the day. The other half of the day I was too busy trying to keep my eyes open to think about cleaning and decorating.

Anyhoo.. we put up Christmas lights outside. Nothing too fancy, just one string of colored lights. I know.. overachievers.

I decorated the tree and when it was time to put the star on I told Cody to hold up Kapri so we I could take pics of her putting it on. So really, I just thought it'd be a funny pic.. I didn't think she'd actually do it!! Well.. she proved me wrong. She actually did!! We have found our official star putter onner person!!

*Tree skirt applied at a later time.. whoops.

Cody thought this was hilarious..

Watch her hair...

Love it!!!

Can she get any cuter?

So I put this sd card in my camera the other day, I haven't used it for a long time and I didn't know what pics were on it. I found these.. and I was googling over how freaking cute my kid is!! Thought I'd share.. so you can ooooh and awwww too!!

Cake and Seinfeld!! Rated A for ADULTS.. sexually explicit information involved!!

We celebrated my Dad's 59th Birthday a couple of weeks ago. I recall him saying he was excited to hit the big 6-0 so he can get the senior citizen discount at restaraunts!!

Shonni made delicious Chicken Tortilla Soup. I showed up late with the rolls.. did I mention they hadn't even been cooked yet? Ha ha!! But don't worry, cause I made a DELICIOUS Better Than Sex Cake!!! And to all of you people out there that think that name is inappropriate.. BOO ON YOU!! You eat your lame "Better than anything you had on your mission" or "Better than Robert Redford (as if you even know)" cakes!! We thoroughly enjoyed our BETTER THAN S-E-X CAKE!!! Mmmm.. I could go for some right now...

Addison LOVED it!!

We gave him Seinfeld Scene It, he's a big fan of the show. I'm usually no good at any of the Scene It's.. but I must say I kind of kicked butt!! Okay, maybe more like kicked some tush.. Fine. I got a few answers right, dang it!!

Trick or Treat!!

The Friday before Halloween Cody's work had everyone bring their kids to trick or treat. Each desk/office had treat. Kapri was FASCINATED by all of the other costumes. She doesn't quite get the concept of pulling the candy out of the bowl. She would put her hand in and play with it, but wouldn't grab anything. I eventually started getting the candy for her. She was perfectly content with two pieces of candy, one for each hand.

They had cookies for everyone and Cody thought it would be a good idea to give her a chocolate chip one. Once he realized how BIG of a mess it was making he said "that probably wasn't a good idea, huh?". I was really proud of myself.. I took a few deep breaths and let her go at it. I have a really hard time with letting her make a mess of herself.. but I'm getting better!!

On Halloween we went to Cody's mom's to trick-or-treat and show off our monster. Frank answered the door in his "scarecrow" get-up. Kapri was NOT a fan!!

Kapri got her very first ride on the three wheeler!! Cody took her around the cul-de-sac.. and I was super nervous. But, then I got on it with her.. and once I realized how secure she was, wedged between my legs and holding her against me with one hand.. I zoomed outta that place, never to return!! Okay, we returned, and I really didn't zoom. It was more like we coasted outta there, but she LOVED it!!

Her cousins Taisha and Brayden came over to show off their costumes too.

Once we got home Kapri was pretty pooped, she hadn't had a nap and it was starting to show.

We took her trick-or-treating to two houses and called it good. Afterall, she had NO idea what was going on, it was all for me. The crazy mom.

We took her home and put her to bed at 7:30, which is a little earlier than her normal bedtime, but man was she relieved. Her poor little face was saying "I just want to sleep, you crazy woman!!"
