So excited for Christmas...we can hardly stand it!
Tyler came home from her Nanny's house sick today (throwing up and everything). I felt so bad for her! She had a really bad fever and all she wanted to do was stay cuddled up on the couch with mommy! She did let me grab the camera...and when I came back Tyler's kitty Sophie had taken my place. Nothing like hanging out with your kitty watching cartoons.
Little did we know that Mommy & Daddy would soon follow with catching the flu. Thank goodness Tyler had had her flu shot so she was only sick for a couple of days...whereas Daddy & Mommy felt like they were going to die for a week!
We won parents of the year when we let her eat nothing but pretzels for dinner one night. It was all we could do to get off the couch let alone cook a meal!
Since we have been married Brian & I have either traveled during the holidays and have not put up a tree or we have had a fake tree. This was our first year going to a tree lot in search of the perfect tree!
Daddy wait for me!
There was a guy at the lot who had this awesome steel train set with track. He said that it was his dads and that he had just restored the whole thing. Tyler loves trains so she was fascinated. She loved sitting in the train but unfortunately she was too small to ride with the train actually moving!
She moved from seat to seat...inspecting them all
We found the perfect tree and the guys on the lot took care of the rest. They sawed the bottom...shook it to get all the dry needles off....wrapped it up and strapped it on my car!
Merry Christmas from the DeBruin Ladies!
The annual tradition of visiting Santa Claus. I knew it was unlikely that Tyler would sit on Santa's lap this year since she is a VERY clingy girl lately but I though we would give it a try. She wouldn't sit with Santa alone so mommy got the opportunity to tell Santa what she wanted for Christmas! It's a secret!
Tyler loves shoes.....I mean what's not to love!
Love this girl!
This was Tyler & I's second time to this museum but it was Daddy's first time. Tyler had never played at the wooden park so it was something new for her to do.

Sitting on the engine of the train! Trying to get a picture of these two is like herding cats!
I give up
She was a little nervous with this dino this time
Digging for fossils with daddy
We also got to go to the petting zoo which was awesome because it was closed the first time we came. It was exciting because they had 5-6 baby alpacas which were shaved except for their heads. I wish I had gotten a picture!
We are so lucky to have such a nice park/lake less then five minutes from our house. We met up with moms from the working moms group for a quick playdate.
Running around trying to catch bubbles
Playing at the park
She was being really silly
Pictures of me and Tyler which is fairly rare! It was a great day at the park. It was warmer than normal for November so we took advantage of the weather.
