We had so much celebration this year for Bebe's first Christmas! The past few weekends have been filled with fun parties and get togethers with friends and family. We hosted a big Christmas lunch for our families at our house yesterday- another first for us! Now of all things we are snowed in! We got around 10 inches of snow Christmas night!
Here are some pictures from the past Christmas celebrations we have had.

Christmas morning-

Guess we could have just given him a empty box and measuring spoon :)

My good friend's dad looks just like Santa and in November we arranged for him to come to our house with five other families and do a mini photography session with Santa. Of course the morning of the photo shoot Carter woke with with a high fever. So, he is not smiling in any pictures because he did not feel well at all.
Here are a few I liked despite the sad face...

O Christmas Tree

We started a new tradition this year of going to a Christmas tree farm and cutting down our tree. I had never done this before and it was really fun! I think we found a beautiful tree! Now we are pulling out all our decorations and putting them out all over the house!

9 months

This is a little late because Carter wasn't feeling well. But here he is, the 9 month old!

He is learning new things everyday and getting so old!
At last doctor appointment he weighed 17.06oz, 28 in

He has starting seeming a lot more interested in baby food, he eats three a day now

Still drinks 5 bottles a day, we are trying to get to 4

He has one tooth so far!

Says dada and mama over and over but he doesn't know what they mean

Sits up really well on his own, army crawls and wants to be in the floor playing all the time.

First Sick Days

Our poor baby has been dealing with his first fever and ear infection. He has just been pitiful. His fever has gotten as high as 103.6 and it has been scary for me because I don't know what to do and just want him to get better! He is on antibiotics now and seems to be better today.

A few weekends ago we had a very warm fall day and we decided to go to the zoo with some friends. The babies didn't get much out of it yet, but they enjoyed being strolled around!

Brain Cells

Is our Baby sucking away some of our brains cells?
Here is some of the things we have done lately that make us wonder....
Last Friday as I was drying my hair I realized it looked very greasy still, yes I forgot to put shampoo in my hair

My husband was running water and vinegar through the coffee maker to clean it out. I walk in to water everywhere- he forgot to put the coffee pot under the maker.

I accidentally wore leggings backwards all day to work

We headed out on Saturday to early vote and we have to go to a nearby town. My husband had a faster more scenic way to go. A hour later we had defiantly gone a scenic way and where back at home having been lost and no where near any voting booths.

Pumpkin Patch

We are lucky enough to have a great pumpkin patch about 5 minutes from our house! We went with Aunt Missy and Uncle Ryan and had fun but I think the baby was overwhelmed by all the people and new things because we was not very cooperative in pictures.

Things have been crazy at our house in the past few weeks. Both David and I have started new jobs. We are in the midst of learning new places and people, adjusting to new schedules and trying to figure out insurance, ect. It has been crazy but I think we will both be happier for our changes!!!
Also going on in our life... My grandparents came to visit from Oregon! They finally got to meet the baby! It was great to see them and have them at our house.

Before and After

We got our library/office painted last weekend. It was one of the last dark painted rooms we had left to redo. We also removed wall that was built in front of fireplace to have brick show.
