Charlotte's First Thanksgiving!!

Having tons of fun in Bakersfield!

Kasey, introducing a little piano to Charlotte...she loved it!

It doesn't look like it, but Baby Blair and Charlotte had a lot of fun playing together :)

Aunt Marlene and Charlotte watching the kids play tennis at "the club"!

Julia was so great teaching Lily how to play!

Julia was so awesome with lil C too!

Joe made Charlotte laugh like crazy!!

Lily, preparing to show off her karate moves!

Patty cake, patty cake...

All of us playing Apples to Apples, what a fun time :)

We loaded up the kid, the car and some Thanksgiving goodies and headed up to Bakersfield to spend Thanksgiving with my Dad and his side of the family. It was great (as always!). Charlotte got to meet her cousin Blair for the first time and they were instant besties!

The girls (minus Charlotte) got up at 5am to hit the shops and were home by 11am so the boys could hit the gold course!! While they were golfing my Aunt Marlene and I took the kids to play a little tennis and then we played a little Apples to Apples.

It was a really wonderful Thanksgiving. I only get to visit with this side of my family once a year and I treasure our time together so much :)

Dominic's 1st Birthday Bash!

Catching some zzzz's before our big day! I will save this picture in my heart forever :)

Robyn went all out! There were horses and goats and all sorts of fun stuff at D's party!

She loved it all!!

Robyn left some carrots out for us to feed the animals! Too fun!

She was beyond thrilled to see them!

What's that?!

I must have it in my mouth!

The kids went crazy for the pinata!

Maybe next year lil C!!

Dominic went to town on his cake!!

One more round of animals!

I love this picture! So excited!

Great party Robyn!!

One of my best friend's Robyn threw her son an amazing first birthday party! There were horses, goats, pinatas and a ton of other games! We had a really wonderful time and I was so happy to be a part of Dominic's first birthday celebration!!

Apple Picking...or really Apple Pie Tasting!!

It was so beautiful and chilly too!

Riley's Farm! We missed you Becky and Riley!!

She was having fun with all the leaves :)

Love you!

Chubby cheeks! Chubby Fingers! So Perfect!!

Oh a leaf!!

So dainty!

We saw some little animals at the Little Seedling Ranch!

She loved it times a million!

Yikes!! A horse!

Ready for lunch!!

Chicken pot, chicken pot, chicken pot pie!!

So sleepy after a long day! That kiddo can sleep anywhere!!

Kev and I spent the day with Charlotte up in Oak Glen. We went to pick apples, but the season was short because of the recent fires so instead...we walked around and enjoyed the beautiful fall leaves and ate some delicious apple pie! It was a wonderful day all around! We'll make sure we get up there sooner next year so we can actually pick some apples!

Charlotte is improving her bottle holding skills! It seems she only tries to hold it when she's in her car seat! A for effort lil C!

My Gorgeous Girl is 7 Months Old!

Charlotte Rose you are growing and glowing. Your little personality is coming out and astounds me everyday. Your little smirk is my favorite, it's a little closed mouth smile that sometimes turns into a big gummy smile, but only if I'm really funny!

You've begun to notice that people wear glasses and hats and you instantly try to snatch them off their heads! You started being able to put your own pacifier in your mouth...but only sometimes! You've become scared of the mailman, overnight it seems! You started eating meats, but hate it so we have to disguise it in your fruits and veggies! Your favorite thing to do is to look outside and you love the rain!

You've grown so big that you've outgrown your bouncy chair and your tree! Oh tree, we'll miss you! But sadly you've been replaced with the Jolly Jumper and the exersaucer!!

And to my delight I can see your Daddy all over your sweet face now. You really have the best of both of us!

Something new and cute :)

Charlotte started putting her arms in the cracks of her high chair. Kev and I always thing we've locked her arms in! But nope, she's just hungry and ready for action!!

Cousin Time!

Bath time!!

I love your mohawk Charlotte!

Splish splash :)

How is it possible that Charlotte's head is the same size as Lucas'!! Haha!

I love this pic! Cousins :)

Keith and Carmen were nice enough to watch Charlotte for us so we could go on a date night! We had a great time, but from the pictures Carmen took...I think they might have had more fun!!

Thanks guys for taking such great care of Charlotte!
