Happy Anniversary!

I carry your heart with me (I carry it in my heart)
I am never without it (anywhere I go, you go my dear; and whatever is done only by me is your doing my darling)
I fear no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet)
I want no world (for beautiful, you are my world, my true)
And it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
And whatever a sun will always sing is you.

Here is the deepest secret nobody knows (here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud and the sky of the sky of a tree of life; which grows higher than a soul can hope of mind can hide)
And this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart.

I carry your heart (I carry it in my heart). - E.E. Cummings

I am truely blessed to have you in my life. I am looking forward to many, many, many more!

I love you, my darling!

Christmas Pictures

We had Addison's Christmas pictures taken a few weeks ago. I was so proud of my little Chica! She did such a good job. No fussing, no fighting. Just perfect little happy smiles all morning long! I can't believe how big my little girl is getting!

This one is my favorite. I can't wait to put this one on the wall. It shows all of Addison's cute little faces and personality.

Yes, Santa! I HAVE been a good girl!

Sorry about the pictures being so pixilated. I wasn't willing to fork over the extra $100 to own the copy right. So this is what JC Penny gave me to put on my blog.

Look-Alike Meter

For those of you wondering which parent Addison looks like, the results are in. I am waiting for a real DNA test to be preformed to find out if I really am her mother. Since I think she looks NOTHING like me!
(Haha, do ya'll like that the only picture I have of Randy by himself is from our wedding day? Doesnt' he look so young and handsome?)

Ear Wax

Addi makes me laugh so hard!
This morning, she went around the house singing "Ear Wax, Ear Wax" in her sweet little sing song voice. All the while she had my little makeup applicators sticking out of her ears like Q-Tips. Needless to say, I won't be using those again!!!

Holiday Craft Ideas

I am hoping that Santa thinks that I have been a good girl and gets me a new camera. My old camera has been a good friend and has been there when I've needed it...until now! My poor camera has died.
If you don't mind, let us have a moment of silence for my camera.....................
R.I.P. My good friend!

Moving on, here are a few of the Holiday crafts that Addison and I have done together.

This first one is one that we did at my mom's house in honor of Thanksgiving and the turkey that leaves our bellies full.

Take 1/2 graham cracker, put a little (or a lot in my case) chocolate frosting on the graham and then place a striped chocolate cookie and 1/2 a small almond joy on the frosting. I also put frosting between the cookie and the almond joy so that the cookie wouldn't fall over. Then take a little colored frosting on the almond joy for eyes and a waddle. And there you have it, your own little Turky Lurky.

Addison and I did gingerbread man cookies at Grandma Beth's house and then again at Aunt Nancy's. The first picture is Addison's little man and the second is Mama's little man. I think Addison's turned out better than mine. I'm a little jealous!

I Believe in Santa Claus

I am trying to make traditions for our little small family and one of them is going to see Santa Claus. Isn't this every one's family tradition?
The first year with Santa, Addison did great. She was only 6 months old and didn't cry.
Last year, we couldn't even get a picture with Santa. I don't know who was more afraid of who. Addison with Santa or Santa with Addison.
This year, I kind of thought it would be a repeat of last year, but surprisingly it wasn't. Okay, that is not quite true. One day while Randy, Addison and I were in Walmart, they had a Santa there that you could sit on his lap and get a picture with. Addison tried to be a big girl. But when it came time to sit on his lap, she cried and cried and cried. She knew that she shouldn't cry with Santa. So whenever his name came up, she would say "Addi cry with Santa".
The next time we saw Santa, my Mom, Addison and I were at the 'mall'. I say mall loosely because if you have ever been to the Logan mall, you will not that it is not much of a mall. Anyway, we were waiting in line and Addison was doing really well. She even went up to Santa and was good with him. Until I walked away so that she could get a picture with him. Then she started to cry. I thought that maybe if Santa gave Addison one of his candy canes, then she would stop crying. This Santa was more of a Grinch. He said he wouldn't give her one until she sat on his lap. We decided that it wasn't worth making Addison cry, so we got up to leave. That is when Santa's heart grew two sizes that day. He said that she could have a candy cane. Once Addi got her candy cane, I told her that she needed to tell Santa 'Thank You' and give him a big love. After she gave him a hug, she was brave enough to sit on his lap for a picture. I was so proud of my big, brave girl!

PS. If you can't tell, Addison has her 'happy face' on!

Ghost Light

Tonight as Addison and I were leaving Grandma and Papa's house, Addison found a "Ghost Light". In Addison speak, a ghost light is a search light. We found one in the parking lot of a sports store that was having their midnight madness sale. (And no, it was not midnight when we left my parents house.) As we were on our way to find the ghost light, I could hear Addison talking in the backseat. She was saying "Where are you ghost light? I'm gonna get you. Tickle, tickle, tickle." I was laughing so hard. She is so funny!

For your entertainment, here is "Mater & The Ghost Light"

Date Night

This is what date/movie night looks like at our house.
First, you have to get food that you know your child won't eat. Randy & I decided to go Thai.
Who doesn't love Green Curry (Besides Addison)?

Second, you have to get the right movie. Addison chose "Daffy Ducks Fantastic Island" circa 1983.
(I think she chose this movie because of the green curry incident.)

Thirdly, you have to get popcorn and snuggle with the daddy.
Fourth, you need to tell mommy "GO AWAY!!!"

Fifth (and this is the key to a very successful date/movie night) you have to eat the popcorn right out of the bowl just like a puppy! This is a very important step that you must not leave out!

Addison was showing off all of her faces.

This is her "happy" face.
This is her "sad" face.
And this is her "silly" face.
Addison has many face and I love all of them!
