"Baby Claus"

Jeff bought this adorable little Santa dress for Lily on his trip to Alabama with the boys. Victoria has affectionately named Lily as "Baby Claus" when she wears it.

Some pictures from our Church Family Christmas Banquet on Friday night......

It looks like she's yelling at her roll, but actually I just said, "Smile, Lily" and that's the face she made!!

Two red-headed buddies, Colin Wellard & Luke Harris
The love of my life.....

Miscellaneous December Pictures

Okay, Mommy, I'm ready to get down now!!
Lily's very first taste of corn on the cob and she did really well!!

Yay!!! I love corn.

She loves corn, so I thought I'd let her try corn on the cob (I accidentally uploaded these picture wrong, so they're in the opposite order that they should be.)

Trying to take off her hood - what a cutie pie.

Sweetie Lily-girl

Love this scrunched up look on her face. She's such a joy!

Our beautiful 11 year old Christmas tree - we bought it the first Christmas we were married at Menard's in Gary, Indiana for $45. I'm praying for a great after Christmas deal on a pre-lit (with white lights) tree for next year.

One of my favourite pictures of our Lily Bug.

AJ and Lily - Lily with her new "smile"!!

Cute little chair that Grandma Tina sent home with Lily on Thursday.

I love the look on her face here as she looks at the normally "untouchable" Christmas tree ornament!

Luke - my big handsome 10 year old! He's got such a sweet heart.

AJ and Victoria playing St. Catharines On Board with me - it's a local variation of Monopoly. (I won!)

Lily's adorable new hat from Great Grandma & Great Granddad Mellor.

Opening new pj's!!

Sitting on the bag of books Granny Kay sent home with us. She sits on the funniest things. Sure do love our baby girl.

My youngest cousins....Katie & Annie Gortson. Such pretty little girls.

My grandma, her son (my dad) and Lily.... Lily sure does love her Opa (she can already say "Opa" - it's so cute.)

"Smile, Lily!"

What a good mommy, Lily, feeding your baby - actually it's Tori's baby doll, but that doesn't really matter.

Sunday School kids singing

A few of our cute Sunday school kiddos practicing for their next time singing in church.....

(You might want to pause my Christmas music before playing this video!)

I know everyone will think I'm being prejudiced, but I just love watching AJ in this video - he can make me laugh so easily!

Friday night with Oma & Opa - post #1

Victoria with the apple pie that she helped to make at the Laverdiere's house. It was delicious and she just beamed when everyone said so.
Oma and her Lily-Bug! When my parents got here on Friday, Lily just about RAN to the door when I said that Oma was here!! She sure does love her Oma and her Oma sure does love her!

Opa hearing all about the boys' trip and looking at AJ's map of Kentucky. AJ loves maps.

Jeff does not love having his picture taken, but after a few goofy faces, cooperated for a nice one!

Oma & Opa over for pizza & pie

Post #2 - Friday night with Oma & Opa. Pile on top of Opa.

Oma with three of her grandkids. Lily's doing her new signature smile!

Awww...Luke sure is a good big brother.

Victoria working on combing Opa's hair.

The finished product!!
There's that smile again!!

Opa and his girls.

Saturday Fun

The older children were all excited to have Christina & Madison Cote over for the afternoon!
Lunchtime - the all time favourite of kids of all ages....Kraft Macaroni & Cheese!

Lily playing with AJ's pajama pants!

Our happy baby girl!

I laid down on the floor with a pillow and Lily came over to share!

Lily has an evil look in her eye. Not sure what she's thinking! :-)

Playing with the "picture taker" as one of the kids called it today!

Lily jabbering away.

Working on unfolding the clothes I just folded...actually she's pretty good about not touching when she's not suppose to touch.

Cheesy grin!

AJ is getting so big. 8 years old now!

Tori - she missed being in most of the pictures because she was cleaning her room.

Playing with the Christmas decorations

Awww, so sweet!

Even the big kids enjoy them!
