See You Next Year!

It's been a wonderful 2006 for us, God has blessed us in unbelievable ways this year! With the new house, healthy family, finishing school, and so much more, we are very thankful that God has given us another year together.

Tonight we are heading to the Red Hot Bash at Mars Hill: Ballard with our friends John and Colleen. Caley's hanging out at home with Grandma and Grandpa Bales, and Great Grandma Evelyn.

See you in 2007!

What is your emergency?

On Tuesday I called 911 for the first time. The emergency? In a moment of "mommy brain" I locked Caley and my keys in my car while it was running. Thankfully she was not in distress and safely locked in her car seat. I don't think she was even suspicious there was an emergency. So I called 911 and an officer broke into my car for me. Very exciting! Now you can learn from my mistake, if you lock your keys in your car, make sure your kid's in the car too because then you can get it unlocked for free by the cops!

O Christmas Tree

This weekend we also went to the Children's Ministry Christmas party. Caley won in the kid category for most outrageous Christmas outfit. She wore a puffy paint Santa sweatshirt, and Rudolph antlers and a flashing nose. Bill and I wore equally weird Christmas sweaters.

We got our Christmas tree today and decorated it. It's always fun to remember how we got all the ornaments. Caley put a few ornaments on this year, she especially liked the Sesame Street ones from my Grandma Ev. My favorite ornament is my Baby's First Christmas one, it's a buggy with a baby and it says "1981." Grandma also gave us some retro tree lights, you can see them in the pictures, the huge bright ones. I'm sure they're a fire hazard, they get warm and some wire is exposed, but I just love them! It really adds a nostalgic look to our tree. Some people have a themed-tree, ours is just eclectic and random. I think it's the perfect kind of tree, one with lots of history. Enjoy these pictures!

Toddler Mischief

What happens when your toddler finds the Vaseline during naptime?? Hmmm, just so happens I have personal experience with this. It happened today! Caley was crying at her door so I went to check on her, and noticed she was covered in something. At first I thought it was vomit, but it didn't smell. Instead it was all greasy. Apparently she'd found the jar of Vaseline, opened it, and started smearing herself with it. Maybe she needed some chapstick? Oh well, this will be a funny story to tell her (and her boyfriend(s) ), and at least this time it wasn't poop.
