I heart 90210

Ok - so my post has nothing to do with the new 90210 but I'm watching it and I'm too tired to come up with a crafty title.

Jac's bday weekend was tons of fun!! Friday night we headed down to Arlington for our yearly trip to Clarendon Grill. A great time was had by all - even though Ben and I made it an early night! ;0) Taylor had a little night of fun of her own at my parents house. They played with her all evening and then put her to bed. Instead of waking her up and taking her home we decided that we would spend the night there as well. It worked out great for all of us! We headed home the next day to get ready for Aunt Jack and Uncle Todd to come over and hang out with Taylor. We had a nice bday dinner (my pulled pork - yumm-o) with them, Antonio and Lauren. Our friend Kamber came over later with her little guy Cooper. Unfortunately I didn't get any pictures of him but believe me when I tell you he's a CUTIE!! It was a nice relaxing night of hanging out and watching college football.

Sunday started off better than it ended. Started with a little family breakfast and ended with the Skins losing to the Cowboys. Boooooo - sad day.

Taylor and I went to dinner tonight with Donna, Kathy & Sandy. She was SO good and such a big girl. I brought her "hook on" seat to the restaurant and she sat at the table with all of us and ate her squash while we had our meal. Adorable!

Busy Busy

Well - it's been a busy couple of weeks for us! Here is a quick recap and a link to our "November" pics.

Taylor has started eating "real" food. We started spoon feeding her rice cereal a few weeks ago and she really seemed to enjoy it! We then moved on to oatmeal cereal a few days ago. She didn't act as if she liked it as much. I can't blame her - it smelled pretty bad. ;0) It was just as entertaining as the first day of rice cereal seeing as we have created a raspberry blowing monster. She would take a bite of cereal - give me a big smile - and then blow a raspberry at me resulting in cereal all over both of us. I tried not to laugh as I was really trying to concentrate on feeding her but it was just too funny of an experience. More so because you all know how much I LOVE a mess. hahahahaha!

Tonight we had our first family dinner. Taylor got to sit in her little chair at the table and she had some sweet potatoes while Ben and I had our own dinner. She seemed to be ok with them. I wouldn't say she loved them but she was definitely interested in the orange goo.

The past weekend was eventful as well. Taylor got her ears pierced on Saturday! She did great and they look SOOOO cute. She is such a trooper. The lady who did it said she thought it was harder on me than it was on her. True Story!

Ben and I attended Frankie & Debbie's wedding yesterday. It was a really nice (little chilly) ceremony & reception - both held at Meadowlark Gardens. Congrats to them!! Here is a pic of us with the newlyweds!

Here is the link to a few pics on Snapfish of Taylor's first rice cereal adventure, Taylor & Madison (Clinton & Alisa's daughter) and the wedding.


Hope everyone is doing well!!
