You are my sunshine

You make me happy when skies are gray.

Clearing Out

It's time for me to finally get rid of the remainder of my P&P inventory. Everything must go! We need to make space for books and toys for our wee babe. Nothing is priced over $10 and most items are $5. I have hats, headbands, and flower clips for babies, boys, girls, and women. Head on over to my Etsy shop by clicking here. These are great, cheap, friend gifts or stocking stuffers for the holidays.

Lucy's Blessing Day

Our sweet Lucy was blessed in our home, last Sunday, November 28. It was a wonderful experience. Josh gave her a beautiful blessing. It was an emotional moment for everyone present. She is a lucky girl to have a dad who loves her so much. She was her perfect angel baby self, as always, and didn't make a peep the whole time. Lucy is the sweetest babe in the world. We are so blessed to have her as our first born, we couldn't love anything more.

Lucy wore the Christening gown I wore when I was a baby. Hopefully she'll have a daughter one day who will wear the same dress on her blessing day.

Eloise, Lucy and Finn

Eloise was very interested in Lucy. It was pretty funny. Lucy looks really mad in these pictures but her anger only lasted a few seconds.

With all our friends who participated in the blessing.

Thank you to all our friends and family for coming to support our lovely baby. We love you all so much and are so happy Lucy has so many people who love and adore her. She is the greatest thing that has ever happened to either of us and we feel so completely blessed she is ours for eternity.

Thanksgiving Week

We had an awesome Thanksgiving week. My family came up to the cabin, where we spent most of our time. It is a gorgeous winter wonderland here in Utah right now. The cabin and Sundance in general are magical this time of year. We did a lot of relaxing, eating, and enjoyed our time together.

Lucy with my amazing Grandma Rita, whom I love so dearly.

Chris and Mari met Lucy for the fist time this past week! It was very exciting. Mari stayed with us one night and was able to hold and play with Lucy all morning, which is her best time of day.

My family came into town Monday night and stayed the whole week. Everyone was so excited to see Lucy, I felt like I didn't get to spend any time with her all week. I only got to be with her when it was time for her to eat!

Luke might love Lucy the third most, right behind me and Josh. He adores her so much, it's amazing.

She just cuddled right into him and fell asleep.

We hot tubbed in the negative degree weather. It felt so good to relax in there, but it was so miserable getting out and walking/running to the cabin through the snow. Aaaah, I've never felt cold like that before.

Sweet Lucy on her way to meet Uncle Chris for the first time.

They are naturals, and I can't wait for them to have their own one day.

Cuddling with Grandma Linda before bed.

Napping with my girl.

Linds enjoyed smooching on Lucy and fought off anyone who came within feet of them and looked like they might want a turn with the teeny babe.

Notice Lu holding Lukey's finger, so sweet.

Hanging out in the backyard with Grandpa and Uncle Luke.

One of my favorite things about this age is that her arms don't reach above her head. I think it's just about the cutest thing ever.

Thanksgiving day was spent at Josh's mom's house. A lovely meal was prepared, the kiddies played, the boys watched football, and fun was had by all.

My two true loves:

Lucy's Thanksgiving feast of breast milk made her super sleepy. It's hard being a baby.

Enjoying a good nap on Grandma Bonnie.
