New House!

Just to let everyone know, we will be getting the keys to our new house on Tuesday! It has been a bit of a long process and we thought we'd have the keys a few weeks ago, but we are excited that the time is finally here. I'll post some pictures once we move in and make it look pretty =) Our new address will be:

1321 E. Rice Ranch Road
Santa Maria, CA 93455

Rock Band RockStar

We were at our friends Brian and Shelley's house yesterday for our bi-weekly "friends dinner" and Lily was rocking out on the drums with Shelley:

our little girl

She's growing up so fast! Yesterday I just sat around and played with Lily and watched her in amazment at the girl she is becoming. She learns so much everyday and is so fun to be around. She is all over the place now, cruising around the furniture and she is finally learning to crawl (she's been hanging on to that military crawl for a while now, but she is just starting to get that belly up off the ground) and is getting more daring by the minute. Lately she is really into playing with our phones. My phone is a flip phone and she learned how to open it up and has been really enjoying pushing all of the buttons (so, if you get a call from me and I'm not talking, it's probably Lily!). She also started getting very upset if we take something away from her that she really likes but isn't supposed to play with (like my phone)'s pretty funny, and a little nerve-racking of possible things to come in the toddler years!!! I took some pictures of my lovely Lily and of her adventure with my phone.

Silly Lily

Lily is getting funnier and funnier in her ripe old age of 9 months! She loves to laugh, be silly, wrestle with daddy and get into everything she's not supposed to =) A couple of days ago I put Lily in her crib with a few toys while I went to take a shower. When I got out of the shower I went to check on her and found her sleeping like this:

She was folded in half and was dead asleep! It was too funny not to take a picture of. We love our little goof ball!!

Cousin Dennis is the best!

I know, it's been forever since I posted computer hasn't been working all that well and I put all of our Christmas pictures on Steve's computer, so I will have to post those from his computer sometime soon. So, for now, I am just going to skip over Christmas (it was awesome!) and tell you about our visit down to Orange County to visit Lauren, Denny and little Dennis. We went on New Years Day and stayed for two days. Dennis is 5 months old now and is full of smiles. Lily loved seeing her cousin and Steve and I loved hanging out with Lauren, Denny, Dennis, Lois, Jimmy, Todd, Kristi and the girls. We had our own "Christmas," including a wonderful turkey dinner (thanks Lois!)
