Liv'n at 9 months!

Livie Lou is nine months old!

We DIE over her. She's got such a fun little personality and LOVES to joke and laugh.

She loves using those little fingers to figure everything out. She can open her own yogurts and figures out her little toys.

Liv loves to watch movies of herself and Audrey. She also loves to dance. She'll dance if you make any kind of noise with a beat.

She says mama and dada for Kyle and I when she wants us. And she says "HI!" when she sees someone and points and waves. Really cute to watch her communicating. And she gets a total kick out of it too. She points to herself and pats her chest when she's asking for something or thinks something is for her.

She's in the fiftieth percentile for height and weight (as usual). She weighs 18 lbs.

Dance Show (1st ever)

This is also day 14 for Advent fairy.

Audrey REALLY enjoyed her first dance show. It was so much more fun than I thought it would be. Audrey was in three numbers with two costume changes and I was VERY skeptical going into it. But, it turned out to be super cute and most of all Audrey really enjoyed it. She kept saying, "it feels like my Birthday!"A huge thanks to our family and friends who came and sat through the whole show!

Grandpa Lon brought Audrey flowers and she was VERY excited about it. She's SUCH a sucker for flowers... and Grandpa Lon.

Advent Day 13

Watch Charlie Brown's Christmas and make a Charlie Brown Christmas decoration.

Avent Day 13

Go shopping for you own ornament.

This is a tradition I started when Audrey was born. I thought it'd be fun for her to select an ornament on her own every year. Then she'll have a collection for her own Christmas tree some day. It's fun b/c I make sure they have a date on them and then they always reflect what kind of a stage she's going through at the time.

Advent Day 12

Letter to Santa. Very exciting.

(Matthew 1:20-21) But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins.

Advent Day 11

Go to see the lights at the temple.

Audrey packed these items in her purse. so sweet.

We got to go with Kyle's family. Made our night extra fun.

(Zechariah 9:9) Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.

Advent Day 10

Go to a Special party at church to meet Santa! Very exciting news. After the party Audrey told me she had a good time but we should go back to our old church, the one with the bread and water. She wouldn't except it was the same one.

Liv won't let anybody hold her but she was completely happy with Santa. She was almost happy to see him. She kept staring at him and rubbing his beard.

Audrey asked Santa for a new princes Ariel...she's got like ten of them!!!!!! Am I supposd to get her another one?!

(Hosea 13:4) Yet I am the Lord thy God from the land of Egypt, and thou shalt know no god but me: for there is no saviour beside me.

Advent Day 9

Barbie Christmas movie and surprise pj party with a few friends. This was pretty good last minute planning on my part (toot toot). Kyle was out of town and I was wishing Aud and I had some fun plans, so I made some last minute. I'd planned to give her this movie so I invited a couple of her friends to be there to surprise her. The advent fairy came and five minutes later the doorbell started ringing. It was fun. I picked up some funny headbands at the dollar tree for some Barbie hair and my sister Sarah (who is the manager at a bakery) dropped off some treats for the girls to enjoy. It was so fun and easy. I love this age b/c they are so easy to please.

(Ezekiel 37:27) My tabernacle also shall be with them yea, will be their God, and they sall be my people.

Advent Day 8

Bake Christmas cookies. Audrey likes to be the chef and she calls me her "assisment" (assistant).

(Jeremiah 23:5) Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgement and justice in the earth.

Advent Day 7

The Christmas fairy brought Audrey a little tree for her room with a bag of decorations. This turned out to be SO FUN. We all enjoyed decorating it together and she looooves having it in her room. She wants it by her bed so she can look at it when she's laying in bed. (thank you fresh n easy...$12.00!!!!)

(Isaiah 9:6) For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Cousellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Advent Day 6

Fireworks and snow at Disneyland! It was a FREEZING but FUN night. I love Dland in December!

Advent Day 5

The shelf elf reported to Santa that Audrey has been very good thus far so Santa sent a little gift with the Christmas fairy.

I love that Audrey is so easy to please. She just couldn't have been happier with her dollar tree surprise.

These little cameras are adorable, I thought it was such a find. It has a little flash and everything. Three cheers for the dollar tree!

(Psalm 89:26-27) He shall cry unto me, Thou art my father, my God, and the rock of my salvation. Also I will make him my firstborn, higher than the kings of the earth.
