My mom had a friend call or text her the other day saying that I really needed to put some updated photos on the blog.  I'll admit it hasn't been my top priority, its not easy trying to keep up with multiple sites.  Anywho, here are some pictures from Easter.  We had a great day, and the weather was beautiful.  It was one of those its suppose to rain all day kind of day and then it was a perfect sunny day!

We were so lucky to get out of town for a few days at the end of January to enjoy some sun and fun in Key Largo.  We did a little sight seeing, but most of our time was spent at our little resort at the beach, playing at the playground, or finding some great restaurant to feed us mass quantities of fish :)  We ate way too much on this vacation but oh was it so good.  M was such a good girl the entire time and really proved to us that she is a pretty good little traveler if she has her Mammy P in the back seat with her to keep her occupied 100% of the time :)  My mom was great and went with us to help out with Miss Maizie so that Tyler and I could both do just a smidgen of relaxing. :)

Anywho, one day we went to this really neat marine animal park, Theatre of the Sea, just down the road from us.  It was so cool an Maizie loved all the shows especially the dolphins.  Tyler even got her a stuffed dolphin while we were there, which she quickly named Twister, after one of the dolphins in the park.

Hot Chocolate anyone???

Once we started going sledding on what seems to be a daily basis with all this snow we've been getting, I decided it was time for Maizie to be introduced to the most wonderful post sledding beverage, hot chocolate.  I am sort of no fun when it comes to things like this because I know once I introduce it, we will always have to have it.  So what happens when Mom forgets to buy more hot chocolate at the store and we have just come in from the best sledding adventure ever ???  Mom learns to make homemade hot chocolate :) Check out the recipe here, its really quite good, but not good for you! 

Anywho, like any little kid M loves to have a million mini marshmallows with her hot chocolate, while momma likes to add some irish cream (McCormicks's, of course), don't judge.  Its cold out and someone has to get through the next few hours before daddy gets home.  But seriously, if you like Irish Cream, skip Bailey's and get McCormick's its awesome!

Ok, so back to my cutie... here are some cute pictures of her making her hot chocolate and trying to decide what she wants to cook for dinner :)


"More momma."

"You want one?"

Dropping them in. 

Quite pleased with herself. 

Stir it up. 

Just cute :)

We love sledding!

We've been trying to enjoy all this snow we've been getting (what else can you do) so any day that it was warm enough to get outside we did a lot of sledding.  M loves it and we probably have one of the best hills in the neighborhood in our yard so we are pretty lucky, we don't have to go far.  M is brave enough to go by herself and is so funny about it.  I love these pictures of Tyler running down the hill in front of her.  Needless to say, Tyler didn't have to work out on the days we went sledding, lots of running and hauling our girl back up the hill.  I just had to take the pictures :)

After a nice little nap.....

Here are some sweet pictures of our girl after a nap.  I just love these pictures of her, there is just something about them.  I've been trying to capture more real life moments of Maize and our family.  I really want to be able to remember what things were really like everyday rather than a bunch of posed photos.  I also hope that Maizie will see from these types of pictures how much fun we had when she was little and how much her daddy and I love her.  
Cheesy face!

She always does this funny look up to the right face and I am so glad that I finally sort of captured it in a picture.  Its so cute. 

Wrapping up her baby. 

Locked in on Elmo.

LOVE this face. 

Take my water momma.

Christmas Eve! :)

We had such a wonderful Christmas this year.  We are so blessed to have such wonderful family, friends and special little girl.  She is the best thing in the whole world and has made the holidays SO much fun.  We had a nice little dinner at our house Christmas Eve with my parents and Aunt, then did our own little thing Christmas morning with a yummy breakfast.  Then late afternoon everyone showed up to our house for  nice little family get together.  The boys fried us a turkey and the ladies finished up all the sides and rolls.  We had quite a spread!  Here are a few pictures of our girl on Christmas Eve!  I'll try to split them up since I have so many pictures that I want to share.

Christmas Eve Snow!

Maizie and I were so excited when it started snowing on Christmas Eve morning.  We couldn't wait to get on our boots and play around in it for a bit.  When I say we, I mean it, its crazy how much fun snow is again once you have a kiddo.  I just love to watch the amazement on her face when she is looking at those falling snow flakes.   I used to hate the snow and I imagine if I had to go to work everyday and get Miss Maizie to and from child care in the snow I might still hate it, but since I don't I LOVE it now.  I really hope we get some more this winter so that we can do some more sledding like last year, as we have the perfect hills on either side of our house.  
At one point there were some huge snow flakes falling, I wish I would have gotten some pictures of them but we got cold and went inside for some hot cocoa.  

Hope everyone had an amazing Christmas!  I know we did, we had such a great time!  Pictures of Christmas will hopefully we blogged soon!


Trying to catch some flakes!

Loving the snow.

"Momma, its so bright out!"

I love this picture!  All the snow flakes falling on her face.
