I'm a little late posting these pictures, but this is Molly and I doing a little holiday baking. You'll have to excuse my face and attire... I was not caring that day. We had a blast using the KitchenAid together. I definitely have to watch her though, because she loves to turn it to FAST!

Merry Christmas

Ok, so we all know that Santa is the handsome, busy, funny guy we call our husband. But who would have thought that your builder husband would have a hard time assembling a simple child's kitchen??

So maybe Nana didn't look at the box when she bought the 42 wooden piece--140 pieces of hardware. Not thinking, Santa left his drills at the North Pole (Blanco)and we assembled this all with a Phillips screwdriver. We thank Auntie Brett for taking the elf roll and helping us with the massive instruction manual.

We finally finished assembly at 12:30 AM and crawled into bed.

Blake and I exchanged gifts after midnight, our new tradition, so we would have a Christmas moment to ourselves. I got Blake an iphone which he was very excited about. He did fantastic this year and got me a ring from Tiffanys.

Morning came oh too quickly and Molly was up at 6:45 AM. She still doesn't get the whole Christmas thing so she was in a terrible mood. We had to watch Elmo in the bed to calm down a little bit before going out into the living room. But as soon as she did, all grumpiness was forgotten. She saw her kitchen and fell in love. Blake got her a monogrammed chair and I got a pink tricycle. She hopped from present to present smiling.

Christmas has been crazy, so I'm a little behind on my blog. My mother, grandmother and their two dogs are staying with us while the house is close to finishing. We have a week left before they move in. I don't even have our tree up yet and my Christmas shopping is VERY behind. But Blake and I managed to take some cute pics of the fam and Molly for cards. I don't have everyone's address, so if you'd like one please email me your address. Or you can leave it as a comment.

I hope everyone is enjoying the holidays!

First Haircut!

It was an exciting day for Molly. She had her first haircut! Although it was totally over-the-top in price, it was worth the smiles. We got great pictures and Molly had a blast. We did have to brib good behavior with a sucker.
