Slacking on the pictures!

I have been so bad about taking pics lately. I am normally a picture taking FREAK... the PAPARAZZI, if you will!

I feel so bad. I should be snapping pics like CRAZY of Hailey right now... she's growing up so fast and  want to remember this stage forever.

I have been taking some pics... but usually with my phone, since it's always handy. They aren't the best quality but they are better than nothing!

I thought I would share a few...

Random but cute =)

I have a feeling I will be taking a lot more pics now that Hailey is growing up and getting more of a personality. She smiles, makes faces, etc. Can't wait to post more =)

Hailey meets Santa!

Good morning!!!!

Here I am.... blogging at 6:30am! It's the only chance I am getting these days.

I'm up early... Thanks Hailey! She was hungry for breakfast, so mommy fed her and decided to stay up. I have my 6 week post partum doctor's appointment this morning (My baby is already 6 weeks old????) and would like to get the last of my Christmas shopping done today! I just started my shopping yesterday soooooo that's not too bad!

I'm not going to lie... I have been a little stressed this year about Christmas and getting everything done and some other "junk". Thankfully, I am feeling much better since getting most of my shopping done =)

You probably don't care about any of that... On to the title of this post!

Hailey got to meet SANTA for the first time this past Sunday!

Never wake a sleeping baby =)

Yes... she is fast asleep... we tried to wake her but it just didn't happen.

I am loving this pic. I was a little worried since "Santa" and his "helpers" were a little... what's the word? QUESTIONABLE!  I will leave it at that =) 

I better cut myself off right there. I have to get some things done before my little girl is wide awake and I don't get to do anything.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season so far!!!!

It's "that time of year" again!!!! And a special offer from Shutterfly!

What I mean by "that time of year" is that it's time for Christmas cards!!!!

Again, I am a huge slacker on the blog and I am embarassed to say I have been slacking on getting my birth announcements out and show off my HAILEY!

I decided that I am going to combine my birth announcements and Christmas cards this year and what better way to do that than through SHUTTERFLY!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE pictures and I love that Shutterfly has so many Christmas photo cards to choose from. I need to get busy on the picture taking for the cards but here are a few of my favorite cards...

I love sending and recieving photo cards. They are so personal! I love to see how people, families and children are growing. Sadly, we can't always see the ones we love as often as we would like. These cards are a perfect way to show off your family or something amazing you got to do over the past year.

Shutterfly is doing an awesome promotion right now! If you are a blogger, you can get 50 (YES 50) photo cards FREE! Just visit this site to sign up. You will recieve an email with instructions on how to recieve your 50 FREE photo cards. What are you waiting for????

My photo card (which ever I choose) will defintely include at least one picture of this little angel!

What will your Christmas cards look like?

Our baby is 1 month old... ALREADY!

Our baby girl is already 1 month old! I can't believe it!

Incase you were wondering, I still think she's the most amazing thing that has EVER happened to us. I just love her to pieces and am so happy to have her.

I have been slacking on the blog posts... a lot has happened. My baby turned 3 weeks, 4 weeks and officially 1 month old AND celebrated her first Thanksgiving ALL in one month!

Thanksgiving was a great day... for the most part. We had plans to get together with Craig's family in the morning for a Thanksgiving breakfast, but it didn't work out. Craig's sister, her kiddos and "Grandma" were all sick. Total bummer, but they didn't want to get Miss Hailey sick so we canceled breakfast. I was thankful that everyone was so good about not getting the baby sick, but it was sad not seeing them! We are SO Thankful for them and hopefully we will get to spend some time with them sometime soon to make up for it! After everyone's germs are gone =)

We made the best of our first Thanksgiving morning together and had breakfast as a family of 3!

We spent Thanksgiving with my family at my aunt's house. Our family is small, but everyone was there. It was so nice to hang out and it was actually relaxing... REALLY!

There was a TON of food... everything was amazing! I am so thankful for my family as well as Craig's. We are very lucky!

I meant to get a picture of Craig, myself and Hailey but forgot!

I did get a good pic of daddy and his little girl!

Not only did Hailey celebrate her very first Thanksgiving, but she also "celebrated" her first BLACK FRIDAY!!!!!

No... I didn't pull my baby girl out of bed at 3am (although we were probably up!). I let her sleep in until about 8 and we hit up Target. Anything we had set out to get was gone by that time... but it was still fun. Hailey was a good girl and slept the whole time!

As you know, I am slacking big time on the blog! I have been much busier these days... Hailey is high maintenance and when I am not holding, feeding, changing her I am getting things done around the house or doing any running around that needs to be done. I will try my best to keep things updated around here!

I am SOOOO looking forward to celebrating Hailey's first CHRISTMAS and will definitely blog about it! Hopefully it will be sooner than later. Probably after her first NEW YEARS =)

Until then, I will try to keep things updated around here as much as I can!
