Today I am going to do a little bit more Christmas shopping. It is hard to do it all at once, because the munchkin doesn't like to sit in her stroller for very long. Can you blame her? I am going to the OB this afternoon for a check up. I'll update you later on how it goes... i'm sure everything is fine. Tonight we are going to dinner with a bunch of friends! I am very excited about it... going out to dinner is my favorite past time!!! I am so sad about the weather. At the beginning of the week they were predicting snow- now all we are going to get is rain. Yuck. I love this picture that I came across... maybe we will get to see some of this when we are in Colorado! Only 3 more days to go!

Well, Claire got to sit on Santa's lap on Friday night. We waited in line for 30 minutes and then it was our turn. Jeff plopped Claire on his lap and they snapped the picture before she could even react. As you can see from this picture that I took she was not too excited about the experience. It is not the best picture in the world, and I'm sure $30 at the mall would have produced an even better picture... but, oh well. She is only One and Santa isn't the "reason for the season" is he? The party wasn't that great... long lines for food and tooo many people. On Saturday morning we went to a Birthday party for a little Two year old. It was at Mc Donalds, so the older kids had a blast. Claire had small bites of her first happy meal. It will not be a habit though. I am still determined that she will not eat that stuff. That's all for now... i need to finish laundry. Only 6 days until Colorado!

Christmas Party

Tonight is Jeff's Christmas party at work. It is a family party (the only one of the year) so we are taking Claire. The best part is that she will get to have her picture taken with Santa. I am too cheap to take her to the mall and spend $30 on one picture that she will porbably cry for. So this is a great alternative. After that the evening will go as follows: 29th floor: eat and small talk. 30th floor: the same. 31st floor: continued. 32nd floor: and again. Should be a fun night! Actually I really do look foward to these things because it is a chance for me to be around real- live- adults. I'll try to post a picture of Claire and Santa tommorow!

Ice and snow...

Today turned out to be great. Last night was NOT great though. I woke up at 2AM with a migraine and spent the rest of the night and following morning hugging the toilet (gross i know, but i thought that was the nicest way to descibe it.) I never get morning sickness in the middle of the night, so last night was a first, and hopefully a last. I feel so much better now. Claire had her 12 month well baby check up today. It was so sad. She got her MMR and Chicken pox vaccine and then to put icing on the cake, she got her finger stuck too. She is still has anemia. We are going to try a new supplement, pray that it will render the situation. The best part of the day was Jeff coming home early. He didn't even call, just showed up at 12:30. He worked from home today because of the weather. It was nice having him around all day. Oh, and who loves this weather? I DO!!!! It is great! I love hearing the sleat on the windows, it is so cozy. I wish we could have a fire in the fireplace. That would not be very baby-proof though. Well, I'm off to an early bedtime, I am SO tired from not sleeping last night! Good night! P.S. This is a picture of Claire all bundled up before we left for her doctors appointment!

Claire's first birthday was on Saturday. We had a party for her and all of her little friends came. She had SO much fun. When it came time open presents she helped and got excited about each one. When it was cake time she shoved the whole piece in her mouth and loved it! It was a very fun day. This is a picture of Claire with her Grandpa Gerry and Grandma Sara in her new red wagon! She got to go on a long walk on her birthday. smething that she loves!!! What a lucky little girl!

I guess i'm weird...

Ok... Do any of you like those shows on Discovery channel, or TLC- the ones about medical miracles and people with ultra weird conditions? I LOVE THEM! This morning I watched "The woman with half a body!" Very cool. My favorites- "Ferrel children,""The 160 pound tumor," "The boy without a face," "The boy who's skin fell off"... OK, except the last one, even I had a hard time watching. It was so graphic and sad that I couldn't handle it. I think it was because I knew the boy was going to die. Most of the other ones are about how these people do a rare surgery and save them! Maybe I was supposed to be a doctor, oh wait, that requires really good grades! Ha, Ha! It's not that I like seeing people in pain or deformed... I think it's because I admire them so much. Every single one of them is so strong and peaceful. They have accepted who they are and what they have been given in life... something I think most of us can't even do! So next time you see one of those shows advertised, know that it will definatly be recording on my DVR!
