10 on 10::December

Here area quick few pictures of some Christmas fun with our family!

'Tis the season for yummy hot chocolate...

...with these awesome mini marshmallows I bought at the Miller's Apple Hill Orchard store!

She was very excited when we got out some of the boxes with Christmas stuff in them, though she has no idea what it was yet :-P

Evelyn loves to play with our Little People Nativity set.  I decided to set it out on our coffee table despite the fact that I knew I would be constantly resetting it up correctly thoughout the day. But it keeps her busy so I let it go!

Evelyn was enacting a modern version of the Christmas story...the angel came bearing good news... on his tractor!

She loved putting up these window clings.

Enjoying the lights!

Showing off her favorite Rapunzel ornament!

It is funny because she wants to go up the stairs as close to the wall as possible so she can look up at the tinsel garland I have wrapped around the railing :-)

I am very excited for our first Christmas as a family of four this year!!!
Check out Amy's  10 on 10!

Monthly Kiddo Update!!

Evelyn is now 22 months!
What's new?
-We are entering the phase of a MILLION questions! She is constantly asking "What is that?" "What's this?" "What's over there?" "Who's that?" "Where'd Daddy go?" "Where'd Hunter go?".  Fun times :-)
-It has been fun to see her get excited about Christmas things this year. She loves our Christmas tree and is very quick to point out "Christmas Yights!" (Yup, still working on our L's--ha!) and her favorite ornaments which are Rapunzel and a Cinderella that sings a song when you push a button. We also watched Frosty the Snowman as a family when we decorated for Christmas and now every snowman is Frosty and she randomly says "Karen's crying". I ask her why. She says "Frosty melted!" haha
-She must be going through a growth spurt because she is constantly hungry these days & can eat a TON. Lately at breakfast she will eat a piece of toast, a banana, and a bowl of her new favorite thing "Cheerio's n milk!" And she is still asking for a snack an hour later.
-She loves her little brother! She loves to hug him and kiss him and lately goes up to him and says "Hi cutie!!  What a cutie!!" lol

(She is looking up at the Cinderella ornament...mean mommy put that one way out of her reach haha!)

Hunter is now 4 months!
What's new?
- He is continuing to grow and grow and now is stretching out of 6 months clothes and size 2 diapers.
-He is now very efficient at grabbing things and putting them quickly in his mouth. It is fun to see him concentrate so hard on something he is trying to grab.
-He spends a lot of time in the excersaucer, he loves playing with the toys, and loves to stand!
-He now sleeps anywhere from 10-12 hours at night. He was consistently doing 12 then he started  waking early so I just put him to bed a little later which works an extra feeding into his day.  I will often wake him at 7:30 a.m. that way I can get him fed and ready before Sis wakes up!
-He is still very happy & content! But if he does get worked up,which thankfully is rare, he screams like a little girl! It is actually kind of comical (after the fact ;P) because you have not heard shrill until you have heard him scream! Yikes!
