Evie's New Year News!

So if you haven't guessed or seen the subtle hints I've dropped around Instagram  and figured it out I am coming clean today. The jig is up. I'm officially with child. Pregnant. Knocked up.
I'm slowly coming out of the first trimester fog. I'll be back to update you all very soon!
Until then, Happy New Year friends!

Wordless Wednesday: Breakfast With Santa 2013

The Saturday after Thanksgiving the whole family headed out to Cedar Hill Farm for our annual cutting down of the Christmas tree and breakfast with Santa! Other than feeling pretty crappy it was a great day we didn't go with a twelve foot tree like last year, but when we got the nine footer we chose in our house it is still pretty huge! I haven't named him yet this year, but I am thinking of Herman. I like it. 

{No smiles for you, momma!}

{Concerned about all the broken pumpkins left from Halloween!}

{Evie and her grampie!}

{Chris and his Dad}

{Family photo. You can see how not good I felt.} 

 {Cutting down the tree!}

{Riding back from cutting down the tree!}

{She loves "driving" this tractor!}

{Sitting on Santa's lap. She did great this year. She was all smiles and giggles! She told Santa she wants a bulldozer and a baby brother for Christmas. Since that day she's added a dinosaur to her list. Momma better get busy in more way that one!}

{Playing on the big girl swings after breakfast!}

{After breakfast we headed down to the farm to see the animals and ride the ponies!}

* 1) My wonderful MIL took some of these pictures, so I can't take credit for all of them! 2) My family was there too. I promise. I just was a slacker about taking pictures! :(
