This is one of our Christmas card outtakes. It highlights Avery's personality. She went from super happy to this in about two seconds!
Why do cellphones and remotes make babies so happy? Probably because they know they're not supposed to have it...and they know if it's a play one too. This is a really happy boy right here!
Pillows also make this boy happy. Throw a couple pillows from Mom and Dad's couch on the floor, and this is what you get! He loves to crawl over them and then flop his whole self down. He's a love.
This is one of Avery's many imaginary people that she makes up...Celaphan. Celaphan does not answer to the name Avery. She also has special dance moves that require lots of twirling! Do not confuse her with another imaginary person "Angeglee the Mother". She only wears one blanket.
It was Mason's 3rd birthday on the 8th. We went out to Ritter's house and the kids played and played and played. It was a great party!
Madisyn kills me. I think she changed her clothes four times at the party! You can see Carter in the background with a remote control car driving through all the people. I think Santa will be bringing him one of those!
A nice picture of the girls - they get along so well. Madisyn loves to carry Avery around.
A little Teagle Beagle crawling around at home. My friend Mariya knitted this hat for him - he looks pretty cute in it. He's also a drool machine as you can see!
Carter's poor T-Rex needed some medical attention. Luckily Avery was a dinosaur doctor (like on Jurassic Park, Carter told me) that day. She put a band-aid on his leg and gave him a shot. He was feeling better in no time!
Cookie time! Grandma and the big kids mixed up lots of different colors for our sugar and sour cream cookies. Imagine...Ave has yellow, Carter has blue, and Lando has red (which was kind of pink, but whatever).
We had to go buy a star cookie cutter just for this boy. He loves a blue star!
Avery is a very careful froster. She does a really good job!
Landon was very creative. He got into the decorating spirit for sure!
Here's some of the cookies we made (we did sugar on Saturday and sour cream cookies on Sunday). I also made spritz cookies. It was a baking weekend! Carter had an awesome five colored star in there. Very nice!
On Sunday, we made some Christmas dinosaurs (like everyone does!). This one is Avery's. It made me laugh and laugh. She put an eye and a smile on him because he was a happy dinosaur. On the wrong side, but that's okay! I love it.
Crazy faces...crazy kids. These two are kind of nuts!
Laney got a trim the other day. She's still nice and hairy, but Carter was worried she'd be cold. He gave her a blankets and some hugs. He loves Laners, and she loves him too. What a nice guy!
Last but not least, since this post is late, Teague turned 10 months old on the 13th! It's hard to believe he's that old already. He is standing up on his own now though. I just love my happy baby!
