After a rough fall (well, rough 2012 in general), we decided to treat our family to a lil' love and happiness ... and this came in the form a 2 lb, 11 week old Morkie named Meiko! We couldn't get home from vacation fast enough to pick her up and although she still seems to get confused on the whole 'i can only go potty outside' thing, she has been such a blessing! Avery loves Meiko and can now almost say her name perfectly and is constantly asking to "hold it". And Foxxie was the worst critic of all, but has finally come around and taken well to her new best bud!

Deck the halls .... of Avery's bedroom

Since Avery is actually old enough to get in the Christmas spirit this year (Hallelujah!!)- I decided to jazz up her bedroom with some festive accessories. If you haven't seen our house yet, we have a different theme tree going on in each room with matching decorations. It's a little bit of work, but something I look forwsrd to doing every year. Every morning Avery & I count 1...2...3! as I plug in the lights to the big tree - and before she can even admire the lights, she has already run to the next tree awaiting 1, 2, 3 lights! All of my decorating efforts are well worth it if my little girl enjoys them like I do!

Vegas Vacation

Mommy & Daddy just returned from a well-needed/deserved vacation to Scottsdale/Vegas and couldn't come home empty handed with something for Avery. Leave Mommy in charge of a souvenir and this is what you get!

That's a Honey of a Tree, Clark!

It's officially Christmas time and our first stop on the Tradition Train was heading out to Williams Tree Farm to pick out our Christmas Tree. Williams Tree Farm is a wonderful, family-owned farm where my family started getting our Christmas trees over 20 years ago! We were on a mission to pick one out quick enough to get home before the Bear game, and since Nick knows how particular I can be with my trees, we gave ourselves plenty of time! So much fun to have Avery talk about the trees and take in all the sights - I think she is going to like Christmas just like her mommy!
