New Years Eve

Elliott didn't call to get a cab ride home after a night out on the town. She looks good to be an ejected MVC with entrapment.
Making sure that there is nothing in her trunk for the cops to find. She saw The Hangover. "No, officer. No naked Asians here."
"Have you seen my monocle?"

We woke her up at midnight to give kisses. They were not tolerated. OK, it was the camera she didn't like.
Second take.
Happy New Year!
Auld Lang Syne

Elliott is learning to be a savvy shopper. Baby on a cat skin rug.
Ophelia loves it. Just look at her face.

December 27, Sunday

Elliott was still hungry after 2 jars of baby food and a bottle. She also had lasagna
and chocolate for dinner.

December 26, Saturday

Photographic evidence taken just seconds before she let go of the wall and stood on her own. This is happening more and more often... Sassy
She loves her Daddy

Red-faced after a little fussy fit. Daddy wouldn't give her the toy that he was playing with.
Giraffe CPR. 1 rescue breath to the ossicone and 15 compressions.

Christmas Day!

Merry Crima' Elliott had peas, corn, potatoes, stuffing and cranberry sauce for lunch.
No baby food for this one!
Opening presents with Nana.
She loved the ribbons.
Finally starting to get the hang of opening gifts.
Decked out in her new hairbow.
My heathen child is chewing on her first Bible.
She loves her cow from Papa Joe.
Cousin Rachel with Cousin Elliott
Now back through the woods and over the river to Meme and PopPop's.
She now knows what wrapping paper means.

Silly monkey girl.
The bow only lasted a few minutes on the top of her head.
She thinks she is something special on her new toy.
"No one puts Baby in the corner!"
Except maybe a 4 lb little doggie.
Being silly playing peek-a-boo around Meme as she makes dessert.
Girl on a mission.
She is such a big girl. She ate roast beef, baked potatoes, okra, bread and lobster bisque for dinner. Then ate yellow cake with chocolate icing for dessert. She had to eat dessert with her own fork because she let Kitty give her puppy kisses in the mouth. Gross baby.
Hooray for Christmas!!

December 24, Thursday

Time to get out of the bath and get ready for Christmas Eve!Daddy's little padawan princess Holy smokes! What is going on with that hair?
Elliott gets a quick visit from PopPop before bedtime.
Bedtime wouldn't be complete without terrorizing the cat.
"But Daddy, can't I open just one before I go to bed?"
Countdown to Christmas initiated.
"But Daddy I don't want to go to bed. I worry that there will be more venison in the freezer if I don't stay up to monitor your use of firearms..."
This is a face I NEVER wanted to see. My mother would recognize it as the same look my sister used to give all the time. We are in trouble. BIG trouble.
Papa Joe stopped by to visit as well. What is with all the grandfathers on Christmas Eve? Andrew thought that the gun was for him. Silly boy. You'll shoot your eye out kid!

Elliott got to open presents from Grandma and Aunt Brandi when Mommy got home from work.
I guess she was hoping for pink camo...or she is really sleepy...

She is being distracted by Pope Palpatine's midnight mass.
"How much more of this must I endure? This is pure torture!"
"Mom, what is a Snow White and why is she a midget? Is she a fairy like Tinker Bell? No? Then why is the apple bigger than her?"
