Christmas 2009

I know that it is almost February and I am just now posting Christmas pictures, but it's better late than never...right? As you all know we had a very snowy Christmas Eve in OKC and it was absolutely beautiful!! Of course it made it impossible for us to attend the Christmas Eve service at church and extremely difficult to get to Woodward Christmas Day! Many of our neighbors came over Christmas Day and helped Jerid dig our way out of the driveway so that we could head to Woodward...they are such wonderful people! Here are way too many pictures from our various Christmas was hard to choose just a few!!

This is our house Christmas Eve

I still put Layne and Lyla in their Christmas dresses and took pictures even though we couldn't go to church! I had a difficult time getting a good pic.

Layne holding Baby Jesus in her hands.

Here's the Barbie Jeep Santa brought Layne...she HAD to sit in it while opening all her gifts!!

Lyla got a play gym from Santa which she loves! It worked out well because she played with it while the rest of us opened gifts.

This is the baby doll we got her...she LIKED it a little too much!

Autumn and Layne in their dress up costumes with their favorite Dar! I just love this picture!!!

Layne in her Christmas outfit at Grandma and Grandpa's...she LOVES Snoopy and "Woodscotch"!

Lyla in her matching Christmas outfit..."MERRY Christmas to all"!

My incredibly talented mom made all the girls in the family aprons for Christmas...she even made Lyla a bib!

She also found these aprons for the guys and thought it would be funny...I mean fun to get them for all the "men" in our family! They all looked so thrilled!!!

Here's a picture of the kiddos making their "SCARY" faces...C.J. was still half asleep and not interested in being photographed!

This is a picture of the two princesses putting their wands together to create some MAGIC! They have such a great time playing together! I love Autumn's pose!!

And of course, what would Christmas be without a snowman??? Jerid made this for Layne while she stood there doing her only job...holding the carrot until it was time to add it. I was inside with Lyla and I heard someone digging in the fridge. When I asked Layne what she was doing this is how the conversations went...
Layne: "I'm getting a carrot".
Me: "I already gave you a carrot".
Layne: "Yeah...well...I ate it, so I'm going to need another one".
That's my girl!!!

Lyla is 6 Months!

The last month has been super busy and I am trying to get caught up! Our little Lyla Bear is now 6 months old and I find myself wondering where the time has gone. She is now 13lbs. 2 oz. and 24 1/2 in. long. She is in the 10th percentile for height and the 30th for weight. Layne was very much like this when she was little, but she is very average for her age now. She rolls over and scoots around a little on her belly. She smiles, laughs, and talks constantly! She says both dada and mama, but not so much in relation to us...she just says those sounds. She is now eating baby food and starting to really like it. She is so laid back and happy all the time and we thank God everyday for such a healthy, sweet, and beautiful little girl!! Layne will be 3 in a few weeks!!! I just can't believe how fast this all makes me a little sad. But, I have decided that there is no sense in letting it upset me. I refuse to waste my time whining about something I have NO control over and enjoy every minute that I have with my two girls!! I will soon post some Christmas pictures, so for now hopefully this will do....
