Lazy Weekends!

I LOVE having lazy weekends at home!  I really cannot remember the last time that I stayed in my pjs TWO DAYS in a ROW!  Here are some of our latest pictures!  As you can tell, we have spent most of our time playing!

Raegan loves the remote control.  We gave her one without batteries, but sometimes she gets really mad when it doesn't change anything on the tv.  Here she is pointing her remote at the tv.  

"Hello....hello, daddy, are you there?"

She LOVES her baby dolls!

The stroller occasionally is used for the baby, but more often it is used to transport other things!

Happy screams!  This is ONE LOUD GIRL!!!

Taking the cozy coupe out for a quick spin on the coldest day since last February!

No more bottles in the day...sippy cups only for this big girl!

 Is that not the cutest little scarf?? A lady that I work with made it for Raegan!  SO CUTE!

She has just recently realized how funny it is to stick her tongue out, and she is mesmerized when you do it back at her.  

A girl, her baby doll.....and her fire station!

Just have a seat!  Tiger is so good with Raegan!  She has recently discovered where we keep the dog bones, so Tiger is even more fond of her now!  Every time the cabinet door is left open, she gets him bones and feeds them to him one by one!

Hope you and your family are having as wonderful start to 2013 as we are!!!

Christmas morning...

Yep, it is Christmas morning and I am updating our BLOG!  It doesn't really feel like Christmas morning at our house because Matt is at work and Raegan is down for her morning nap, so the house is silent (except for the thumping of the overfilled washing machine and the snoring dog on the sofa beside me). This is the second Christmas in a row that Matt has had to work.  He left this morning around 5:00 and won't be home until around 8:00 in the morning.  Usually the shifts alternate so he would only have to work holidays once ever three years, but the ol leap year threw the shift calendar for a loop and his crew has been stuck with ALL the holidays for the past 2 years now!  Since we knew he wouldn't be home Christmas, we put in a request for Santa to come a night early and he did!  We had the mentality that Raegan is still so young that she won't understand the whole Santa thing, so she didn't really ask for much.  But then you go out shopping, and you see the cutest little fire station, and a rocking chair that she just has to have, and the just a few gifts for Christmas turns into filling up Santa's whole bag!  She played with her new toys and rocked in her new chair for most of the morning, then we headed to celebrate with my family.  I love our Christmas Eve tradition of going out to dinner (we changed it up to lunch this year), then going back to my mom's house to open gifts.  It's always so much fun to see the kids get excited about their presents and to spend time with each other.  With everyones' busy schedules, we rarely are able to do this anymore!  Here are many pictures of our Christmas 2012!  I hope you and your family had a blessed day!  We will be heading up to Toccoa later to visit with the rest of our family and wrap up our Christmas festivities!  MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

The loot from Santa!
I just can't decide what to play with first!

How about a puzzle?

Or maybe the fire station?

 Nah, I think I will just eat my raisins!

This wore me out!  I think I will just drink some milk and watch tv in my new rocking chair!

Wagon ride, delivering all the new toys to the playroom!

Grandmother only turns the heat on when we come over.  Raegan kept her hat on until the house warmed up a little :>)  I used to wear a HUGE scarf all winter when I lived at home because mom kept it so cold in there!


Mom with all her grandkids!

The girl cousins have to stick together with all those boys around!

Our little family!

Me and my sweet baby girl!

The Hildreth crew

The siblings

The whole family!

Poor Rae was so sleepy since she missed her afternoon nap. She decided to lay down in the middle of all the chaos to take a rest.

The she regained her energy and decided to dive/climb into all the presents.

and that wore her out, so she needed to rest some more....this time with her feet propped up

Rocking her new baby doll from Grandmother.

Her first cowgirl boots!!  All the kids got cowboy boots this Christmas!
