Christmas Cleanup.

Reagan helped me box up the remaining
holiday decorations. I don't think
she realized the bins were for storage.
(a personal indoor plastic gym, perhaps?)
She spent about 20 minutes jumping around
in them which was just enough time to
get the breakables out the way!

Merry Christmas (extended version)

We hopped in the car on Wednesday to spend
a few days with the Bulls...
Needless to say, Reagan made out
pretty good this year in the gift department!
(david, me, reagan, aunt meghan, uncle brad,
pappy dave and grammy gretchen)

Sampling her first attempt at sugar cookies
(she was heavy on the sprinkles) Checking the microwave to see
if her popcorn is done (it pops!)
Taking off like a madwoman after opening
great grandma and grandpa's gift!
Trimming the tree...
Posing with all her new friends!

Merry Christmas To All....and to all a goodnight!

. . .
It's getting late but I just wanted to extend
a quick holiday greeting to all of our
friends and family who have been
keeping up with us this last year...
Thank you for all of your
love and support.
Merry Christmas!
The Bulls

Christmas Trip #1

Now that I have spent a considerable amount
of time redesigning our blog - I thought
I'd take a moment to actually post something...
This past weekend we visited my family
for some holiday fun!

...almost there Pa-Pa!
...the calm before the storm...
Waiting patiently for Daddy to open
The Littlest Pet Shop toys!
Taking a break from the madness to
enjoy a little snack...and rest!
The whole gang!
(l to r front: cousin calvin, grammie carla, great grammie loretta,
aunt laura, cousin carly, back: david, me, reagan,
papa kenny, uncle matt and uncle craig)

Holiday Dancing Part II (with sunglasses AND pajamas)

This could be the silliest video we have
in our collection (makes me wonder who
she is learning her dance moves from...?)

Great Grandma's Cookies

This past weekend we decided to give daddy
some quiet time for studying and went to
visit my family. Great Grandmas always
know how to put a smile on children's faces
...Cookies!
"Mlph Putya Fum...."
(YUM!)
Helping out... What turned out to be a really
nice pic with Grammie Carla!
(still eating the cookies)Double fisted. Just the way she likes it.
Stopping to say hi to some
friends in the hallway.

Holiday Swing

Cookie in hand, of course.
See video for Reagan's holiday jig.

Winter Wonderland

We couldn't resist the snow this past weekend
so we got all bundled up and explored the neighborhood!

She was a little top heavy in all of her gear.

Just testing the boots...

A reflective moment.

Must.... Get.... Snow.... In.... Mouth...

Spic and Span

You would think my house to be immaculate
with all the help. (its not!)
Gotta get under the corners...
Loves the dustbuster - I think she crumbles
all her food just so she can use it...
Susie Homemaker in action...(see video)

The Girliest of Girly Boots...

David and I snagged some super cute rubber boots
for Reagan in Michigan last weekend -
as you can see she isn't saving them for a rainy day.
They must be super comfy...
So pretty!
On the run!

Hula Hooping with a Cheesecake Pan

The title of this post pretty much sums it up...
Hmmm... what can I do with this?

Why Yes... Of Course!

Brief video to follow...

What's a Turkey Say?

Here is a funny little video of silly mommy
trying to get Reagan to "Talk Turkey" :)

A Day at the Park!

We enjoyed the beautiful weather this week
with a few trips to the park!
This is hard work!
I think I'll go down the slide next...
Almost there...
Fuzz Head!
(she was sporting a mini mohawk
thanks to the static cling!)

Big Helper

We finally tackled the leaves in our front yard
this past weekend. After a few hours
the wind picked up and blew them all back.
Good thing we had such a good helper!
One at a time...
Chasing my shadow...
I know someone else who sticks their
tongue out while they work...

Yep...it's official.

I posted the photo below a few months ago
of David from his younger years...
this girl still looks a whole lot like her daddy!
(we thought she would have grown out of it by now!
- David's words... :)

Someone is Getting "Personality"...

Reagan is a pretty good natured little tyke,
but every so often her dark side takes over...
here she is clearly annoyed that I am taking a
picture of her in her red shoes.

Little Momma...

This past week I collected items for a local
family in need, so Reagan took advantage
of all the extra baby items in the house...
(long video, but cute!)

Homecoming Tailgate '08

This past weekend we celebrated ISU's Homecoming
and had some old friends in town...
Sooooooo thirsty!
Kaitlyn, Logan and Reagan pause for just a second...
The Andersons
The Lamberts
Our favorite Homecoming Activity:
Dropping bottle caps in the cupholders...
Inspecting the stroller
Sis, this one is for you.
We were appalled that the Cracker Barrel
was selling Illinois gear (on Homecoming weekend!?!)
Ending the day with a (very) full tummy...

Play Time Fun...

A few weeks ago we acquired a new toy from our friend Emily
and Reagan LOVES it! It lights up, plays music and
has since become her mini indoor jungle gym...
Also including some random shots of Reagan being
silly with her other favorite toy - pillows! What fun!
