Catch up

I'm not ready for Christmas, really. I started decorating late, I started shopping late and well now there are just three, no make that two more weekends left until Christmas. Don't get me wrong I'm very excited about the holidays. Kylie is much more animated and expressive and we are looking forward to watching her open presents. She enjoys the lights, music and holiday decorations. When I hung up the garland over the fireplace and plugged it in she got so excited and said thank you mommy 3x in a row. I just stared at her in wonder and of course it made my heart melt. She brings so much love and joy into our lives. I guess time really does fly when you are having fun:-)
Well alot has happened since my last post. I've posted pictures with blurbs to fill in the gaps. I am however happy to announce that there have been no poopy incidents since the last post:-) She used to wonder off to do her business and after alot of conversation from her Daddy and I that she should not poop in her princ*ess and D*ra panties because we would have to throw them away, she finally got it. Yes licensing works and we've given in to it. Kylie loves her big girl panties and we always let her pick out her own each day. In the past several months she's only had one pee accident in school and it happened right after nap time. She is one of only two kids in her class who have mastered the potty training. Sorry if this is too much info on the potty process I often enjoy reading what works and what doesn't when I come across it on other blogs:-) I would say from start to finish it took Kylie less than three months to successfully use the potty. Whew!

Here is how we've been keeping busy

Baking cookies with Grandma

A nice cup of milk and a kiss & hug from Dad to go with the cookies

I had the pleasure of watching Natalie one Saturday and the girls had a blast together

My SIL came to visit with the family. We were all quite impressed at how Sean can turn a simple soup and salad lunch into a gourmet meal. Yep, I'm a lucky lady as my husband enjoys preparing meals for us pretty often. Thank you honey!

Soup, chicken sandwich with mixed greens, avocado, brie cheese and chips - Doesn't it look Yummy?

We are enjoying the new long awaited state of the art park that just opened up walking distance from our sub-division. The pictures do not do it justice. It has 2 volleyball fields, soccer, baseball, and a basketball court to name a few, a huge water play area for the kids, doggie parks 1 for large dogs and one for smaller dogs, ampitheather, picnic areas, and an awesome playground all of it over looking a gorgeous lake. We load up the red wagon for Kylie and take a nice leasurely stroll to the park. I am soooo excited and so is Kylie. I have pics of Kylie having a total melt down as we were leaving the park the first time we visited. Feel free to come over and visit with your little ones, you will not be dissappointed.

I'm not sure what this thing is called, but Kylie had to hold on tight as it spins her around based on her balancing on it. What you don't see is a nervous Dad just an arms length away reaching out as Kylie was trying to find her balance on it:-)

We went to Downt*own Disn*ey with the Zanegoods for our first picture with Santa... Thank goodness Ellie was there or else I don't think Kylie would have even been bothered with sitting on Santa's lap. Ellie is quite experienced with Santa but look at Kylie's face...can you just feel the love?
"It's not you Santa, it's just me"

Speaking of Ellie...the Zanegoods are expecting their beautiful Korean delivery this Friday and I couldn't be happier for them. We are all awaiting to see Sagan's beautiful sweet face in person.
