Double Date Night

Thanks to Grandma and Grandpa watching Ivory we slipped away for a night to Orlando's City Walk for a night of fun with my sister and her husband, Ben.


We ate at a fun Cuban restaurant.

Live music

Good food, great company!

Love my sweetheart!

My sister's favorite princess, Aurora (Sleeping Beauty).

Early Christmas

We celebrate Christmas each year with my family after Thanksgiving since Debi and I are with our spouse's families. Aunt Nancy bought Ivory this beautiful Christmas dress. She's our little Christmas princess.


Ivory gave Ben a picture frame to hold a picture of their new baby. Ivory's footprints are on the mat.

Thanksgiving

The star of Thanksgiving.

Her first taste of real food. We let her chew on celery since she likes chewing so much. She wasn't too crazy about it. She'd chew a while then make a face and scream.

Aunt Debi stealing kisses...again.

Auntie Sherri giving love!

Grandma--the head chef.

Our boys graciously carved the meat.

Thanksgiving wouldn't be complete without Rachel working on a school project while watching football.

Bella was a great help putting food away and washing dishes.

Football

Ivory likes watching football with Grandpa. She sits in his lap or in her swing and kicks her little legs in excitement. She especially likes cheering for teams wearing red.

Mommy Time

One of the rare times I actually got to spend holding my little one over the holidays.
