I miss this girl!

As much as I have enjoyed my break this week, I can't wait to get back to this little girl! I miss her hugs, kisses, and yes, maybe even her whining too! We love you Arden--can't wait to see you tomorrow!

Our Christmas In Pictures

FINALLY! I know you've all been sitting around on pins and needles waiting to see these pictures!! I hate to disappoint, but after uploading these, I realized we didn't take that many :( Another New Year's Resolution...TAKE MORE PICTURES!!! Anyhow, we had a very busy Christmas as usual. On top of the 5 family Christmas gatherings, almost everyone in our family came down with the stomach bug on or around Christmas Day! What a way to spend the holidays, huh? Thankfully, we were able to get everyone healthy so we could spend time together. I love the Christmas season, and this year was no different. It was so fun to watch Arden actually participate in unwrapping gifts, instead of sleeping like last year. I know that each year will get better and better, but for now we are just enjoying the moment!

Christmas morning at our house---yes, all the presents are for Arden!

She LOVES unwrapping!

Pushing around her new car. She would rather push it than drive it around!

"Hmmm, which one should I open now?"

No, she didn't get a remote for Christmas, but maybe we should have bought her one!

We hope you and your family had a wonderful holiday season and that 2010 is off to a great start.

What a way to start the day!

Most mornings, Arden wakes up in a great mood. I hear her talking and playing, and I normally leave her alone for a few minutes while I finish what I'm doing. This morning was no exception, and this is what I found when I opened the door...

I just love this little girl so much! She makes me laugh each day with all of the silly things she does. It's moments like this I remind myself of when she's throwing a temper tantrum or feeding her lunch to Murphy. The good definitely outweighs the bad, and I can't imagine my life without her!

I know I've been a slacker when it comes to blogging--I haven't even posted about our Christmas! Hopefully in the next week (or two!) I will be able to catch up :)
