Pretty in Pink and Hello Kitty family

Lily loves her Hello Kitty family. She calls the big one Miss Kitty. The two little ones are baby kitties.
She was so excited about taking pictures with her friends.

She also loves wearing her China outfits.
(Thanks Jeff J. for this adorable outfit.)

We had a wonderful holiday with my family and Jeff's family.

We are so thankful for our many blessings, our family, our friends, and our health.

Here are some of my favorite Lily pictures from the Thanksgiving Holiday~

A visit with Santa

I was so excited that Lily sat on Santa's lap by herself. Last year she wanted nothing to do with him...... unless I would sit on his lap also.
This year she was pretty excited to see him and posed for several pictures.
She was very fascinated with his glasses and loved the 2 lollipops that he gave her.

As we were driving to the mall I told her that Santa was a nice guy and from then on she called him GUY.

So here are the pictures with Santa or as Lily says, "GUY".

Well...... we were suppose to be in Mexico this week (on vacation). Plans changed..... Jeff was sick last week and then Lily managed to get sick the night/ morning we were suppose to leave.
We were REALLY looking forward to the beach, pool, sand, sun, and fun.
The 3 of us needed a vacation badly. However, sometimes God has other plans for us. Perhaps there is another reason we were to be at home. We couldn't imagine flying with whatever Lily had and knew that we made the best decision to cancel.

We still took the week off and while it wasn't the same as relaxing on the beach we did get a lot done at home.
We also had some fun in between.

Today we went to COSI to see a Bob the Builder exhibit. Lily thought it was great fun and of course we enjoyed all the fun she had.

She loves to sit in her shopping cart

This is Wendy's Caravan but Lily seemed to think it should be Lily's Caravan

Giving Bob the Builder 2 fives (if we say give me ten Lily says 2 fives)

Trick or Treat- Lily Bumble Bee

We were so excited for trick or treat this year...... last year Lily and I both had the flu. Therefore we missed trick or treating.

Lily loved her costume, getting treats (especially chocolate or as she says cha-lock-it), eating the treats, and everyone telling her how cute she looked.

She was NOT happy when we had to take her costume off for bedtime.

It was a great night and so much fun!

Lily is usually all ready for picture taking. Halloween was the exception. She was much more interested in getting outside for treats!

Make it quick mom


I'm ready to get my treats

Enjoying my treats
