Yesterday, this is what we found her doing.
There is nothing like playing video games while doing your business!
And here is a shot of Brian and Emi enjoying Mommy's present.

Emi was almost 1 her first Christmas so, seeing Santa for the very first time was quite traumatic! Last year, when we walked by Santa at the mall - she would totally lose it. Needless to say, we have no picture of Emi with Santa during her second Christmas.
Hello 2008. My how things change! Emi's cousin Rebecca said that she would not visit Santa unless Emi went with her. When I explained this to Emi she agreed to go and we ended up getting the best picture and those girls didn't hesitate a bit to run up to Santa and tell him that they wanted Barbies for Christmas.
Emi probably walked 2 miles following that train around the tree!

We are having a family reunion and I am looking forward to good company and good food!
Poor Brian will not be in attendance, he has to work the day before and after Thanksgiving. He will be enjoying turkey with his parents in Olive Branch.
I will be thinking of him while I am at the spa :)

Here are the rules:
1. Choose the 4th picture folder on my computer
2. Choose the 4th picture
3. Explain the picture
4. Tag 4 people to do the same.
This is from Emi's first trip to Destin. We were at the indoor pool because it was raining, of course! She loved to float around in that thing, all she needed was a pink drink with an umbrella!

The carving day quickly approached, we set everything up outside and got started. After doing one pumpkin, I was totally over it and was wondering what the heck I had gotten myself into. Now I know why my parents never carved pumpkins for themselves, and why they only did ours. But, we pushed forward and got all 4 of them cleaned out and carved. They did look pretty cute, if you want my totally unbiased opinion. We let Emi draw on hers with markers and after about 2 minutes she was totally over having anything do to with a pumpkin - maybe next year she will have a little more "pumpkin enthusiasm".

While we were at Dollywood, we came across a man selling CDs that you can have your child's name inserted into the songs like 90 times. We thought that it was cute and bought the Veggie-Tales one for Emi - for those of you who don't know, Emi is OBSESSED with Veggie-Tales. It is cute the first 100 times you listen to it, but it gets old quickly. Every time we go anywhere, it must be played or she just sits in the back constantly begging for it. It is so sweet to watch how excited she gets when they are singing her name, I must say.
I am thinking about ordering the Disney Princess CD just to give myself a break from Veggie-Tales.

Walking through the corn maze
The girls with their pumpkins they picked themselves out of the pumpkin patch!
They are in the orange car
We spent our first day at the Ripley's Believe It or Not Aquarium - it was awesome! I highly recommend it to everyone.
Ohhhh, look at the worm!
