Some Winter Pictures

Here are a few pictures of Galli Town this month:

Abby with Santa Claus. She didn't like him too much. This was the best shot we could get.

Here's wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!

Best Husband EVER!!!!

Bri surprised me with an early Christmas present today. He told me this big long story about how he needed to take the van today for a broker call, but he actually dropped it off to have a remote car starter installed!!!! I am so excited. So now I can start my car from anywhere and it will be nice and toasty warm when I get in!
He is so thoughtful, on top of everything else we've got going on this week (like getting possession of our new house tomorrow), he did this. He is so wonderful. I am so blessed.
Thanks Bri, I love you.

A busy weekend ahead in Gallitown, we are moving this weekend. Hopefully I'll get a chance to post some pics of the new house next week. Oh, and we went to see Santa last night, pics of that to come too...

Well the packing is coming along, we are almost done, I think.
The living room is full.

Abby has been helping too!

This pic was from a few weeks ago, she took everything out of the box and climbed in it to play. And she thought it was the funniest thing ever!

After 28 days at the kennel, The Duke & Bear were finally able to come home today because...

As of 6pm tonight our house is officially SOLD!!!!!!!

We are so relieved. I have been a wreck for the last month, so hopefully I'll be back to normal soon, although we move in 11 days, so maybe in a few weeks I'll be back to normal! We haven't been able to pack yet because the house has been on the market, so needless to say there will be a few late nights in Gallitown in the next week and a half trying to get everything packed!

There will be pics of the new house coming soon, so keep checking back...

Abby has experienced a few "Firsts" in the past 2 days.
She was really sick for the first time, throwing up last night and this morning, it was so bad I had to stay home from work today with her. Poor girl. Bri was super dad last night though, thanks babe! But she seems better tonight, we got some toast in her and some apple juice and milk, and it has all stayed down, so I think she is on the mend!
She also took her first steps! She was taking one at a time yesterday, but today she was walking between Bri and I unassisted! YAY! On her 13 month birthday! We are so proud of her, and she was so proud of herself, it was cute, she was clapping and screaming with excitement.

Still no news on the house, we move into the new place in less than a month, so we are just trying to be patient and optimistic that ours will sell soon!

I'll leave you with some random pics from the last few weeks:

Looking out the front

Sorry it has been a while since we updated. We've had a busy week or so...

We finally got Abby a proper car seat for Bri's car, so we turned her around last night, and then in my car tonight. And she loves looking out of the front of the car, and I love being able to see her face. She is doing well, still not walking, but so close!

And now for the really exciting news... We bought a new house on Saturday! We are so excited. But we did things a little backwards, our house wasn't even listed yet! So after a few days of intense cleaning and de-cluttering (with some help, thanks guys) our house was listed on Monday night. We are just praying that it sells fast, as we will be moving into our new house before Christmas! So if you know anyone who is looking for a house, let us know!
In sticking with the post title, here is a picture looking out of our new front door:

Holy Pork Chop

We just got home from Abby's 1 year immunizations, and she was so brave. 3 needles: chicken pox, measles mumps rubella, and flu. Poor girl, it breaks my hear to have to hold her while they are giving her the shots. But she did very well. And they weighed her... 20lbs 10oz!!!! I am so excited, she was 18lbs 12oz 2 weeks ago, that is almost 2 lbs in 2 weeks! YAY! She can turn around in the car so soon. I am so excited. I just had to share!

One More Day

Tomorrow is my last day at home with Abby. I go back to work on Monday. I can't believe it has been a year already. I am really not looking forward to going back, but I know it will be good, for both Abby and I. It is just going to be really hard at first. I've already warned my boss that I may spontaneously burst into tears at any moment. My job will be a little different when I go back, I am looking forward to the change and the challenge. I'll let you know how my first week back goes.

Anyway, Abby went for her 1 year check up today, and she is perfect, of course! She is 18lbs 12oz and 29.5". She wont be turning around in the car for a while, she has to be 22lbs, and at the rate she grows, she'll be turned around in time for her 2nd birthday!

Bri will update soon with pics and stories from his road trip.
