Merry Christmas!!!!! 2009

We celebrated Christmas with Gangi and Pop Pop on Christmas Eve. Layla and I got Cookie Monster from Uncle Josh (i.e. Uncle Gosh), but I like to call Cookie Monster Elmo instead ;)
I got Layla "Potty Time with Elmo" to try to help her with going TeeTee, but I wanted to read it before giving it to her ;)
I got so many fun toys and clothes from everyone. Layla got me a drum and clothes and Gangi and Pop Pop got me clothes and some really cool toys. Thanks everybody! After presents we ate brunch and then Layla and I took a nap. When we got up, we jumped in the bed together
Then posed with a pic with Aunt Stefanie. I LOVE Aunt Stefanie - she is a great cuddler ;). Pretty soon Grant will be here. I can't wait to have a BABY in the family again.
And then Layla and I rocked in the rocking chair
Then it was off to have Christmas with the 'Housholder side' of the family. Everyone came in town and stayed with Grammy and Granddaddy for Christmas - Uncle John came along with Aunt Kelly and Uncle Andrew. Aunt Kelly even brought her buddy, Liz for the occasion.

Grammy bought me my very own BABY!!! She even smocked us matching dresses. Thanks Grammy!
I got lots of cool gifts, but sorry, no pics were taken of them. Uncle Andrew and Aunt Kelly got me a super cool brown jacket and shirt and Uncle John MADE me some shirts - I will definitely need to post pics of those ;). And Grammy and Granddaddy got me the BABY and some books and puzzles. Thanks everybody for the cool gifts! After presents I sat on Uncle John and waited for dinner
Unfortunately, I didn't eat Christmas dinner b/c I was feeling REALLY bad and was ready to go home. Sorry Grammy, I wish I could have eaten your potatoes this year!

I went to bed feeling really bad and when I woke up Christmas morning, I felt even worse, but I had so many presents from Mommy and Daddy to open!!! Here is me opening my very own ELMO!!!!
Mommy and Daddy bought me some COOL stuff!! I got a new kitchen for my room, a tricycle, a shopping cart, and lots of ELMO stuff (DVD's, books, etc). If you guys haven't figured it out ELMO is my new favorite thing. If Mommy would let me I would watch Elmo TV (i.e. Elmo DVD's) ALL day long, I would!

Here is Mommy and I watching Elmo's Animal Adventures (as you can tell, I don't feel good :(
Come to find out - I have a double ear infection :(
During my nap time, Daddy put together my kitchen and my super cool new tricycle. Thanks Daddy!!!
And then Mommy caught me in my room rocking my new baby from Grammy and feeding her a bottle. Mommy thought it was so strange that I knew what to do! Mommy doesn't realize that I'm pretty smart ;)
I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!!!

St Jude 1/2 Marathon

Last weekend Mommy and some of her buddies ran the Memphis St Jude 1/2 Marathon. They decided to call themselves the Golden Girls since the logo of Legacy Wealth Management (Mommy's work) is the Golden Egg. Lulu (i.e. Lindsey) kept singing the theme song of the Golden Girls show, but that is WAY before my time (and hers too ;) Brienne and Lindsey made theses super cool shirts too. They even raised over $1400 for St Jude - I'm so proud of the Golden Girls!

Here is Mommy, Brienne, Lindsey and Celeste before the race. They were smart staying inside until the last minute because it was COLD outside (about 27 degrees in fact)
Here is the start line
And here are the Golden Girls on Riverside Drive. Everyone kept cheering for the Golden Girls because the shirts were so cute. Notice how short Mommy is, hehehehehe ;)

Here is me and Mommy after the race. I had been out in the cold for a couple of hours, so I was not a happy camper
Here is me with all the Golden Girls with their new bling from finishing 13.1 miles. I'm proud of Mommy, but I am REALLY proud of Lulu. She had never run a 1/2 marathon before and she did GREAT!!! She even promised to do another one sometime!
And here is the Golden Girls without me.
After the race they took me to eat yummy Mexican food. Thanks to Daddy for taking me downtown to see Mommy. We had fun! Oh, and for copyright purposes, all the photos you see on this blog post are from Lulu's camera.

Trip to the Zoo

During our Thanksgiving break, Mommy and Daddy took me to the zoo. I enjoy the zoo more and more each time I go - since I now know the sounds a lot of the animals make. I can even make a pig sound WAY better than Mommy!!!! The sounds I do the best are the dog, cat, pig, sheep, and cow. I love animals!!!

Here are the monkeys
And the new Teton Trek exhibit
We also went and watched the seals do their show.
I thought they were very smart and lots of fun to watch! Check out the monkey backpack Mommy and Daddy bought me so they could keep up with me
Here is me and Mommy
And me and Daddy
Mommy ran the 1/2 marathon this weekend, so I promise to blog about that as soon as Lulu gets me some pictures (hint, hint ;)
