Sweet Baby Chloe

So, I've been wanting a DSLR camera for a while now so that I can take quality photos of my sweet babies. All I've had for the last year is my iphone camera. :( Since this generation is obsessed with photographs and documenting every little thing, (me included) I figured it was time for an upgrade. Didn't get a DSLR just yet, but my parents got me a really nice little camera for Christmas that fits my needs just fine for now and!!! I wouldn't know what to do with all those crazy settings anyway. Maybe someday I'll get ambitious and figure it out.

So, Chloe girl and I had a little photo shoot on Christmas Day. She is 6 months old after all. This is the freaking cute result. Disclaimer: If you are a real photographer, don't judge. :)

These next two photos were taken with my iphone camera...but I had to share.

Don't know why I love this so much, but she always sucks on the two middle fingers of her right hand and puts her left hand up like that. It just for some reason. She seems to do that a lot actually. :)

This one is Jake's personal favorite. He sure does love his baby girl!

I cooked a turkey!!

For those of you who know me well, you know that cooking my first turkey was a big deal for me. Let's just say I'm real picky when it comes to turkey so I wanted to do it right. A patient at work last week told me about the 'Good Eats turkey' on #1 recipe on the website 6 years running that has over 3000 reviews and it's STILL a 5 star turkey...DONE!! (Thankyou Alton Brown) We had a FEAST on Christmas day, totally worth it. :)

Isn't she pretty?!? (I'm talking about the bird by the way)

Cashy loved his gifts. Backhoes, dump trucks, dinosaurs, snakes, motorcycles...he's all boy that one. I'm wishing I would have taken less video and more pictures. (I feel like all I do is post videos on my blog!) Here's one of the little man and his daddy watching backhoe videos

We really did have a lovely Christmas. Thank you Baby Jesus for coming into this world!!! That's all that really matters after all. Merry Christmas everyone!!
