bring on Christmas McPhee!

Considering the lateness of the hour and the fact that I was standing in the freezing cold rain at 2:30 this morning waiting to purchase a few choice Christmas presents...this post will include very little of me ranting and raving (please keep the cheers to a minimum). I have so many things I would like to say, but these pictures will just have to speak for themselves for now.

Wanted to post these random pics before they got lost in the shuffle. Have I admitted yet that I am horrible at taking pictures? Yes, I always forget to take them- or someone else gets them on their camera and then I forget to retrieve them....These are the ones that I happened to have from today.

After the lighting ceremony downtown...trying to warm up in the mall...legs propped up true Queen of Sheba style.

Tried to get a good family shot, but sometimes it's like I just don't exist.

Yeah, this little girl has eyes only for her Daddy.
All dressed up and ready to start the Christmas season!

...with Daddy, of course. (-:
Stuffed Sausage McPhee
As hard as it is to believe by looking at her...she got cold...)-:

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I posted Addison's pics yesterday, so I'll spare you more of the same, but her first Thanksgiving included a long nap, eating stuffing and mashed potatoes, and being passed from person to person eliciting smiles and coos. She also started a love affair with a plastic cup which seemed to help with her teething, but was bad for anyone within ear shot when it was accidentally dropped or when I tried to finally take it away from her...

Also, my Mother-in-law got the red nail polish out of my khaki pants that I was bemoaning the loss of a couple of weeks ago due to an incident that I dramatically described in my Nail Polish post....perhaps I should have her do a guest post describing how she was able to work the magic. I was impressed, anyway.


  1. I love the family photos but I COMPLETELY know how you feel....there are times when I don't even exist because Colin loves his Daddy so much!! Cute pictures as always :)

  2. I love the family pics!! Looks like you all had a great time together!

  3. Cute family picture, I love how she is just staring at her dad, so sweet :)

  4. That first family pic is perfect! I hope you use it for a Christmas card and send it to ME:) You SHOULD have your MIL guest blog about that, how cool! Love love the Santa Chubbs picture:) If there was an award for Best Dressed Baby in Essex, I'm sure Addison would win:)


Thanks for reading about my Everything and Nothing. I would love to hear from you!
