Chicago Christmas!

Last weekend we travelled to Chicago for the Christmas parties! It was an interesting trip. Matt got the flu, I got the flu (even though I had the flu shot), Matt got sick again, and we had a 9 hour flight delay back home. The moments of health we had were filled with family and friends and parties! Overall it was fun....and memorable :)

Raven LOVED being held by grandpa! Since being home we have gone through a little grandpa withdrawal...she would especially love him to hold her from 4pm to about 7pm ;)

All the cousins piled up on the couch!

Raven had such a good time with her cousins! We miss you guys!

Raven's Dedication

We had Raven dedicated at our church last weekend! It was so incredible to be able to dedicate her to the Lord. She definitely keeps me on my toes... Because she spits up so much, I waited until the minute we were leaving the house to put her dress on. Then, on the way to church she pooped all over her pretty dress (and all over my arm)! The only items left clean were her little bloomers, a onsie I had in the diaper bag (praise the Lord!), and her sweater (as seen in the pics).
It was a fun day and great to have so much support from friends and family! Thanks to the grandpas for coming to support our little angel...

Happy Halloween!

Raven and I had lunch with cousins (that is the pic with all the kids lined up on the bench)!
In the evening, Matt joined us and we had fun dressing up and hanging out in Magnolia village for halloween! Matt carried our little flower (raven), so he said he was going to be dirt...and I was the gardner!

Kristin's visit!

My great friend Kristin made a visit from Chicago this past weekend! We LOVED having her here...and miss her already!
We did a lot of hiking while she was here, went to a pumpkin patch, and rode on the ferry! The weather was good and we had a great time!

Come back soon Kristin!

raven's 1st ferry!

This past weekend we had yet another wedding out of town. Raven had her first ferry ride, and I think she liked it! It was really windy, but she was super smiley the whole time!

raven's first camp

Over Labor Day weekend we went camping for a night with raven! It was a lot of work trying to think of everything that we would need for one night in a tent, and despite the rain, we had a great time! We just bought a tent that just fits 2 sleeping bags, a pack and play, and a bouncy seat :)
I didn't sleep much(a night filled with mommy worries - wondering if the little one was warm enough), but raven slept like a little sleeping beauty!

photo shoot

Raven and I had a little photo shoot with friend/photographer. It is really crazy to think about how quickly she is growing, and she's only 3 months! Here are a few of the pics from the day...
I love the one with the big lower lip :)
