This is how we keep Abigail still while we are at home. Just kidding. Don't go call anyone to report us. Abigail had gotten sick in her car seat and when I put it back together after washing it she played in it the rest of the night.
Ready for her big ballet performance. That was her prop that she was supposed to shake. We were pretty impressed that she got about 3/4 of her dance in.
Abigail helping us decorate the tree.
Laying under it to look up at the lights. When I put the skirt around it she told Papa that I had put a blanket on the tree and it was going nigh nigh.
My attempt to get a picture of her in front of the tree. She has started running towards me to see the picture before I get it taken these days. Also I hope you are noticing how she has dress up clothes on in lots of these pictures. She LOVES wearing a "ballaween kirt" during every waking moment.
Abigail reading with Grandma and Grandpa. Grandpa looks silly because he is quacking in this picture.
Opening her stocking at Grandma's house.
Pretty excited about her new "Blue's Clue's" movie. She screamed, and jumped up and down when she opened it.
Abigail holding her new baby cousin Colton. She thought he was pretty great.
Her cousins brought their Wii so she was playing some sort or dancing game with them. Don't let the happiness fool you, there was an absolute collapse when I told her we were all done with the remote.
Mama loves the snow. Up to this point Abigail has not...she gets sad (and cries) because there is snow on her boots. But I convinced her to come out at Grandma and Grandpa's house where it's just a little warmer outside than here. I had a hard time getting her to come back in. We had LOTS of fun and I was a happy Mama to have a girly who finally loves the snow.
Abigail put on Mama's boots all by "iself."
We got rolls of paper and paint for Christmas so Mama rolled it, turned up the heat, and put Abigail in her undies and paint shirt. I then proceeded to allow Abigail to make a big mess.
I joke that she might have pica, but seriously, she eats a lot of things she shouldn't. And she apparently enjoys green paint.
Our messy hands, feet, face, legs, you get the point, right before I dropped her in a tub full of warm water.
So hopefully this load of pictures will make up for my lack of picture posting over the last few weeks. We had a great Christmas and boring New Year (just the way we like it). We will open presents as a family on Saturday (we try to do it around epiphany) and still have a Christmas with my family coming up. I'm pretty excited about Abigail's three gifts she will be getting from us, and will definitely have to post pictures or a video because I think she is going to be pretty excited.
Hope everyone else is staying healthy and enjoying day five of 2011.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,
