Christmas Photo Shoot

Well, tis the season for a new family photo for the Christmas card. John came over and took some pictures for us in his usual accommodating brotherly fashion. Thanks bro! And we got some good ens. I especially like the one of G and Alex. He is such a good daddy and husband. Right now we are pretty settled in Happy Town and loving our first family Christmas. God has truly blessed us with peace and love this season.

Trying to wrangle the dogs to get a good shot. Hazy is getting so gray on the chin!

Our card selection coming to a mailbox near you.

All fancied up.

What's that thing on my head?

Playing with my girl:)

Soooo cute!

Smack! Gotcha.

Second Cereal

I can't believe Genevieve is old enough for cereal already! But here we are. Here are some pics from her 2nd cereal feeding. We forgot to document the first cereal which she partook of on Thanksgiving Day. Grandma fed her the first feeding and daddy and sister did the honors for the second go round. She has done really well with it and seams to enjoy being fed. She is such a lounge lizard. Anything that involves lounging around while someone pampers her is ok with her.

Thanksgiving Day

Thanksgiving was extra fun this year. For some reason my sister, who was supposed to be documenting the day for me while I was busy in the kitchen, only took these 3 pics, mainly of Rachel holding babies huh... Anyway, we had a full house with Laura and Sam and their friend Miles (AKA Mile) staying with us for a few days and we had the whole family over for Turkey dinner. 14 people in all not counting kids. We set up the Wii in the back bedroom, so Josh and Carson set up shop back there for most of the day except when we went to play football after lunch. Genevieve enjoyed the company of so many guests and meeting her cousin Julianne. Tami got some great pics of that meeting, so hopefully I can post them later. She was tuckered out at the end of the day and fell asleep on sister Rachel. She loves her sissies! And all of the family. Overall, a really great day even though Texas didn't lose as hoped. There is still time!

First Halloween!

For Halloween we went over to our good friends the Carmacks and went around on our very first trick-or-treat walk in the stroller. Since we live in a retirement community with no other children we have to go to a kid neighborhood for such holidays. We all had a great time and Genevieve enjoyed some much needed socialization as did I. She was so cute with her skinny little legs in her striped tights! And the frogs won convincingly so a good day had by all. The last picture is with the Carmack kids Ayden (princess Leah) and Bennett (puppy). Shonn is extremely vigilant about grass upkeep and the grass was amazingly green! Hard to tell in the twilight, but it was almost like a carpet. I seriously need to invest in a better camera.

What We Have Been Up To

I realize it has been forever since I posted anything, but such is motherhood. I usually don't even find time to sleep. But, here a few pics from the last few weeks. Genevieve is growing steadily I think and survived her first round of shots. More of those to come unfortunately. Enjoy! I will post some more hopefully in the next few days:)

Visit from Aunt Mary who is a natural with babies.

Playing dress up with Aunt Mary and Aunt Kathy.

Awww, she looks so cute! Too bad she had a huge blowout all over her outfit about 20 minutes later:(

A visit with Uncle Bud. We stopped in Amarillo for 2 nights on our way to Colorado Springs and spent a day at Helen and Bud's. Genevieve loved to look at Uncle Bud.

Visiting with Aunt Helen.

Genevieve's new hat! Thanks to Mary and Gary England:)

Sleeping in at the Broadmoor. This is what the Broadmoor does to people.

Pretty scenery by the lake at the Broadmoor. We came here for my birthday and our anniversary. As you can see Genevieve is more interested in sleeping:)

Sweet hubby. I finally pried him out of his Broadmoor lair for a walk around the lake.

Beautiful September weather.

Here are some recent pics of the little girl. She just started smiling the last 2 weeks which is adorable. She especially thinks her daddy is amusing. She went on a 10 hour car ride to Colorado with us and did great the whole week. She had her 2 month check up the other day and she is in the 97th percentile in height and 25th percentile in weight. But overall a healthy baby. We are enjoying our extended hours of sleep too. Starting to feel normal again!

Photoshoot with Daddy

Here are some pics from a photoshoot Alex had when Genevieve was about 9 days old. These are some of my favorites. What a handsome daddy and a sweet little girl!

Newby Pics

Here are some professional pictures we had made when she was 6 days old. The photographer came to the house and spent a few hours getting some great shots. Enjoy!
