Moving AGAIN.

No...we're not literally moving.  I'm moving blogs.  I wanted to be able to show bigger pictures and simplify everything else.  So....introducing "Imperfect Bliss."  Check it out by clicking here.  I hope you'll still follow me!  :)

8 months old...

I can't believe our little Lovie is 8 months old!  Can't imagine life without her.  Look at those squishy arms!    Yummy!  (Better hers than mine!)
This is an unedited pic of those baby blues.  Seriously.  Love! 
 But wait...what's this??  A big black, furry guardian of the babe...
 And it's getting closer...
 Momma, how close are you gonna let him get??
 Oh...I knew it!  Dog slob...again! 
Puppy love for sure.
But seriously...what's not to love??
Happy 8 months, baby!  We love ya!

A Few Pics from Christmas

Christmas Eve...and thank goodness that beard is GONE!

Yes Virginia...your mother DOES need highlights.  Who wants to babysit?? 

Christmas morning.  "Woohoo!!!!" 

The only gift the child wanted...the beloved DS.

Even Santa is enjoying this pink thing. 

Happy baby with milk face. 

"I'm higher than a kite.  Thanks for the catnip, Santa."

"Wait...you make me wear this stupid red sweater and then party without me?  So unfair." 

Guess I really didn't take that many pics.  Was busy enjoying the day!!  Hope you enjoyed yours, too!

Get your Merry on!!

Can you believe Christmas is almost here?  Holy catfur!

We've been keeping up with our advent challenge...although some days it's been difficult to find time between soccer, school, grocery shopping, etc.  But we've done it!  We've made gifts for each other.  Here is Sawyer making bling bling wall letters for Jackson and Finley.  (Thanks for the idea, Design Mom.)
Glitter!  Eeeeeks.
We decked the halls.  The boys pretty much did the entire tree...
...which explains why there are 4 ornaments on some branches and none on others.
We baked cookies from scratch  a roll (hey, it's still baking!)...complete with icing and sprinkles.
(Love ya, Betty Crocker!  You sure make life easier.)

And....we rocked out!!! 

You what? 

We rocked out.

Today, I'm inviting you to join in our advent challenge!  Yes, you.  (Play along.)  Here's today's advent challenge.  (We did it this morning...it's serious fun!) 

Let's call it "Get Your Merry On."  Here are the rules.

1.  Scroll over to the right and turn the blog music off.
2.  Turn off anything in your house that is making noise...the boob tube, the radio, whatever is in the background.
3.  Turn the sound on your computer all the way up.  Louder.  I'm watching you...I said all the way up!
Please note...step 3 is very important.  I had our radio up loud this morning...to the point that Jackson said, "That's too loud!"  To which I responded...says who?  (Which brought a big grin...as he realized something was up.)
4.  Now, click on the video below...step away from your computer...and....
