Christmas was really fun this year because Malia is starting to get the Santa thing.
We started out by spreading magic reindeer food around the lawn on christmas eve, she was pretty excited about doing that !

One of Malia's favorite things she got this year was a little girls makeup kit.  It had (gasp) lip gloss in it !
This girl LOVES anything you put on your lips.  I thought it would be fun to try and take a picture of her every time she put that stuff up to her lips, I bet I have a total of 30. I even took some pictures of her putting it on her Dad, Uncle Dan, cousin Danny and her brothers but I wont blackmail embarrass them by posting it.

A Fun Filled Weekend

First we had a snowstorm over the weekend so we just HAD to go out and play.


Then we took some pretty cool pictures of Megan. Head over here to see more.

                                  This girl and the camera have a serious love affair going on.


Then we came into the house to work on a few school projects for Megan.
She had to make a model of a type of rock called coquina and it had to be edible.
So we made it our of a rice crispy treat
with brown colored marshmallow and some sprinkles for effect.

She also had to make a Yule Log.  I had no idea that it was a looooooong process fun way to spend the afternoon, we used a 'classic recipe'.


                                                               And  guess who helped?

Sissy got braces

Today Megan got braces.  She was pretty excited about it.
(Please note all these pictures were taken with my iPhone so they are not really good)

Here she is before anything happened.........

I think she is starting to have second thoughts now, Its starting to sink in.................
( They made her wear these glasses)

Almost done now.............................

When they were done putting them on, they let her get up and look in a mirror.  Her first reaction was this.
The expression on her face says it all......

Then she cups her hands around her mouth like she is hiding them from everyone in the office and whispers,
"Oh my god they are so UGLY" !

She is so adorable,  I think she looks cute with braces.

Not much has been happening and I really haven't  had any time to take any new pictures but here are some that were taken when we went over to Leigh's  parents (my oldest son's GF) house for dinner recently.
They have two Labrador dogs and the one LOVES to play.  Malia just loves to play with Porter.

Christmas Cookies

Wow, I cant believe its been two months since I posted ! It seems like I'm really busy, but I cant get nothing done.


We spent the halloween weekend camping (where else) in Gettysburg. Malia was excited about it but it started to pour just as we were getting ready to go trick or treating so she was satisfied with just sitting under the canopy giving out the candy

We made out annual Christmas cookies this past weekend.  I figure we made about about 40 Doz of 13 different kinds.

Here's Ms. Peacock now...................

And a few extra pictures, since I haven't really been taking any lately

A few pictures

Wow I cant believe its been this long since I've posted, I guess we have been busy.  Here are some random pictures from our summer.

Getting pushed on the swing by big brothers rules!

Chief was complaining all summer that he didnt get a chance to "drive the boat" in the pool so we made sure he got a chance before closed the pool.  (Doesnt he look elated?!?!)

Malia says "I'm rockin the princess outfit"

Malia and Daddy

Malia's first real dentist visit, she wanted to fill out her own forms

It didnt work, she would not open her mouth no matter how many prizes we put in front of her , so we are trying again in two weeks.

Wow, is it me or do all these pictures look real "grainy"?  I noticed that blogger changed again, maybe thats it?

This weekend

This past weekend we went where? CAMPING of course, lol. As always we had a great time. We were in Gettysburg again, Dylan and Leigh came down Saturday to spend the day (and night) with us so we all went to the Adams County Winery and had a wonderful time. Every Saturday they have a free outdoor concert and it was a beautiful day for it. We will be going back often.

Some of the vats of wine.

Here we all are tasting the wine. All the fruit wine was good but oh my, the Blueberry and Blackberry wine was to die for!

Relaxing and listening to the music

And of course getting flung in the air by big brother is always fun!

We took Dylan and Leigh on a little tour of Gettysburg.
