Flu shot and friends

Not a whole lot going on around here . . . it's very cold and a little icy here in Dallas so we've been cooped up for a couple of days. So, I thought I'd update the blog. Miss Mckinley is acting more and more like a big girl . . doing and saying something new almost every day!

We've started to make some friends and this is MK's good friend Sterling.

This is another friend, Lily - the birthday girl!

We've recently turned our upstairs bonus room into a pretty decent playroom with a couple of furniture purchases from Ikea (this picture is in the middle of the transformation). It has been wonderful! Almost all of our toys are upstairs, instead of strewn all over the kitchen, family room, etc, and Mckinley loves playing up there!

Baby girl got her second flu shot a couple of weeks ago and she ran a fever for most of the next day. She was so pitiful . . she didn't get off this couch for about 5 hours : ( . But by late afternoon, she was running around just fine! And I'm glad she got the shots, because Trent came down with the flu last weekend and it was rough!

Christmas Pictures . . Finally!

Since I haven't posted at all during this holiday season, here are a ton of pictures from the last month!

This is the Christmas tree lighting in our neighborhood. They had several musicians out there and Miss Mckinley danced the night away! She loves any and all types of music, especially live!

Mckinley helping out with the tree . . . she was actually really good about the ornaments, I was surprised. She would just touch a couple of them, but didn't try to take anything off.

Doin' a little Christmas dance . . .

Can you guess who all of those presents are for???

Mckinley's first car! The horn plays music and she is doing a little dance.

Check out the cup holder

My first Elmo!

I put the shape in the right hole and they get soooo excited! Grandparents are so easy to entertain!

Helping Mimi play cards

Check out what Santa brought Daddy! We're gonna start a band!

Reading with Uncle Mike

All bundled up to go see ICE! at the Gaylord Texan. Very pretty, but ridiculously cold!

Doin' a little shoppin' with my new cart.

We had a wonderful Christmas and hope you all did too! Trent's been home for 2 weeks, which has been awesome after all the traveling he's done this year. We're going to go through withdrawals next week when he heads back to work! So far all is well with the pregnancy. I'm about 11 1/2 weeks and I am having an ultrasound next week. It's definitely different the 2nd time around, there's just not as much time to think about it. I was constantly reading books, magazines, websites, anything I could get my hands on the first time and now it's hard to even remember how far along I am!
Happy New Year to you all! I hope 2009 brings you all much joy!!
