Post One: We had Connor's pictures taken for the first time in a studio and it was lots of fun. She is so cute and was sooo good! Here are a couple of my favorites! (I made this pretty red Christmas dress... yeah me!)
That Tuesday we attended Heidi's annual Christmas cookie exchange and had lots of fun. I brought my usual sugar cookies and enjoyed tasting every one's new recipes. My favorite were Heidi's gooey cookies. Why were they my favorite you ask? Because they were sooo sweet, you could lick a crumb off your finger and satisfy your sweet tooth for at least a month... dang girl, I thought I was sweet!
Christmas Eve found us at Aunt Marti's celebrating Grandpa Hooties 50th Birthday! We enjoyed an evening with Family and Food (our favorites!)
The following morning we got up bright and early to get to Grandpa and Grandma Hooties! We had a long night of stuffy noses and crankiness so I was glad to get up and get going. We all had lots of fun opening presents together and seeing what we all got. I love buying gifts for our family and watching them get excited when they open it. I felt good about the gifts we got this year, I think everyone was happy!
Daddy spoiled me this year and it was lots of fun. My favorite gifts from him were my new Coach purse, my navigation (so I don't have any excuses!) and my earrings (all 3 pairs!). Pretty insane yet even more exciting. My parents got us a lap top (which I am finally enjoying while I blog in bed at midnight!) as well as a tool box and Golfsmith gift card for Andres. Connor got lots and lots of clothes, toys and...wrapping paper to eat! She is easy to please this year but I know next year will be a different story!
If any of you read Heidi's blog (which I am sure you do, my readers being Mel, Cheryl and, well, Heidi) then you know about the underwear tree. If you don't, check it out at the link to the right. In the mean time, here is a close up of the undies added this year... too cute! We had lots of fun this Christmas, making sure it was a special one for all of us. Below is a picture of the goodies I still have to find someplace to store. Notice daddy's gift to Connor... the Big Red Wagon, complete with a Connor license plate mounted on the back. It is beautiful and we are excited to sit her in it and pull her around anywhere and everywhere. Daddy also got his precious baby girl her first Diamond bracelet. It is a beautiful silver bracelet with a little heart charm and a diamond in the center. It is still a little too big to wear, but she will grown into it in not time. You know she turns 5 months old on Tuesday!
Well folks, thanks for taking the time to read thru our Holiday adventures. I am sure I could add more pictures and type more text, but I will spare you all... for now. Have a safe and happy New Year and we'll talk again in 2008!!!

Sunday Andres, Connor, Mel and myself went to the John Force Holiday car show in Yorba Linda. It was a beautiful day and we got to see what my parents do every other weekend. Looks exciting dad, those chairs must be pretty comfortable.
We walked around the show and saw lots of fancy cars. I can't believe how much money people put into cars that they won't even drive to the grocery store.
I don't have a good story to go with this picture, I just think she's so stink'n cute!
