giving thanks... "where has the past 10 months gone!"

Such a wonderful time of year and I am so... glad to be around such a wonderful and loving family. It just brings me joy to see how many people love this little girl of mine and she brings so much joy to so... many people with that "two teeth" smile and laugh! What a wonderful life!

I can't believe that Emma will be 10 months next Sunday, WOW... has that time flown by! I have tried to charish every single day because it comes and goes so fast.

We took her to the lighting of the Christmas tree and parade, she clapped and waved the entire time. I think she had a BLAST!

1st Turkey Day!!

Busy... busy little bees (as usual)! To kick the holiday off right, I will be running in the FW Turkey Trot 10k tomorrow morning (hope it is not too cold). Than off to my parents house at 1pm, to see may family from Virginia and my cousin from Georgia is in, too. Emma is not gonna know what to do with all this family that loves her! She is a ham so she will eat up all the attention. It will be a difficult holiday since this is the first one that my grandfather will not be with us and his birthday is the 27th, too. I just hope that my mom will be ok. Friday, put up Christmas tree and decor and we are going to take Emma to the lighting of the Christmas tree downtown and Saturday, I have a hair apt in S'ville and Clint's families Thanksgiving that evening. Needless to say, it will be busy! I hope everyone has a safe and happy turkey day!!

... still lots of practice to make it perfect for my baby girls 1st bday!!

Relaxing on her Papi, while watching the terrible Cowboy game.

Playing with daddy in the mirror after her 9 month pictures that she did so... well at!! She wore a dark green Christmas dress for the formal look and also wore a cute little santa suit dress for more casual look and they were SUPER cute!! I will post them as soon as they are up.

This was my first attempt to making the fondant monkey for the top of her cake. I think it came out pretty well, too!!

Practice makes perfect....

We had a fun weekend practicing cake stuff for Emma's 1st Birthday. I found a cake and the place wanted $275 for it but I WILL NOT pay that so I will make it myself!! These are just a couple pics of the little cake for Emma and some chocolate monkey molds with oreos... so cute!!
