We're back AND exhausted!!!

Christmas has come and gone! Geeesh, it flew! Lesson learned, next year we will not pack as much into such an already busy month! Holy smokes, this Mama needs a vacation!!! Speaking of vacation, here are a few pictures of our trip to Florida. This time around it was pretty family oriented; we went out for dinner one night with friends, but other than that it was pretty low key. And let's be honest with an eight month old, it's pretty hard to have anything other than low key! We're EXHAUSTED!

Ford got lots of cuddle time with his Grandparents!

And tried lasagna (blended of course!) for the first time! He kinda made a mess :) Hence the very quick bath in the sink!!! Holy Mess!!!

 We ate lots and lots and of course made the traditional French Meat Pies 

And Ford, of course, in true crawler fashion, found trouble where ever he went :)
(Bust gosh, he's just so darn cute!)

It was a super fun trip, but now it's back to reality!!! 

This Mama is getting her IMPACTED wisdom teeth out on Tuesday! Hopefully, cross your fingers, I recover quickly and don't have those pesky dry sockets which everyone seems to have a story about! ARGH! I hate the dentist!!!!

Have a fabulous New Years!

Best Pals

Mommy is running around like crazy trying to get ready for the holidays in Florida, but in the meantime, Tana's doing a great job of keeping an eye on Senor Ford :)

A Very Special Visit......

Last night Tyler and I visited with an agent/friend of his when low and behold, someone paid Ford a very, very special visit.... One he (well, let's be honest, Mommy & Daddy) will never forget.
(warning picture overload)

Thank you to the Haynes Family, you made our Christmas!!

I'm back.......

From the best girls trip evvvvvvvvvverrrrrrr!

We toured the city
Went to yummy restaraunts
"Attempted" to be on the today show, hence the Lilly scarves in the dead of winter.
Not warm at all, but super cute!
Went to a secret bar inside of a Pawn Shop (thanks Rach and Lauren)
Tasted yummy cocktails 
Ate yummy food from Food Trucks! 
And just enjoyed each other

All and all, I'd say this trip was perfect! Just the right amount of time and the right amount of fun! Just what this Mommy needed!

But now, it's time to get cracking, I've got gifts to make/buy, luggage to pack, and last minute errands to run! Because the Deneault clan is headed to Florida in exactly one week!

Ford is seven months old!

Holy Smokes! Where does the time go??? Ford-- you are a wild man! 

You finally figured out how to crawl on Thanksgiving with all of your cousins here cheering you on! And since then my little one, you have not stopped! I couldn't even get you to sit still long enough to take a picture with your stuffed bear! You are on the move! 

You are such a rascal! You've also pulled yourself up to stand three times! Once in your crib and twice on our coffee table! You think it's absolutely hilarious! You are seriously about to give me a heart attack with all the pulling, pushing, stumbling, etc! You have no fear.... truly, you are allllllll boy!

So far you say "Mamamama and Dadadadada" I don't think you have any idea what exactly your saying so the jury is still out on what your first word will be. You love to scream as loud as you can and suddenly your new favorite thing to do is grunt. You grunt all the time. Mommy had a doctor's appointment yesterday and as we sat in the waiting room you entertained everyone by grunting as loud and as long as you could and then when you'd catch someone looking at you, you'd giggle uncontrollably. You are such a ham :).  Everyone you meet is instantly wrapped around your little finger; including and probably most importantly, us :).

I'm in a New York State of Mind.....

It's a little nuts here in the Deneault household! We've been busy busy bees! We hosted Thanksgiving, Ford started crawling, Tyler left to go hunting, I'm trying to pack for Florida AND on top of all that.....

In exactly THREE days I am going on my first official, "big girl" Girls Trip. Meaning, it's not for a shower, a bachelorette or a birthday..... it's just because we want to!!!! (And our hubbies are sweet). Not to be dramatic, but I can't even find the words to describe how excited I am! First it's with three of my besties who are so much fun! 

I'm super preggo in this pic!
 And second it's in my favorite place of all time--- New York City!!!!! I am super excited to eat, drink, see a show, shop and just take in all the Christmas Delight that NYC has to offer!!!

I'm a little anxious to leave Senor Ford BUT I know he'll be in good hands. This will be Daddy's first time "alone" with Ford for an extenuated period, hopefully (cross your fingers!) it goes well :).  

Happy Monday!

Crawling is not for the weary.....

Well, it's only been a week since our little guy figured out how to crawl and today we received our first battle scar. This morning he was trying to pull down his basket of burp cloths from the coffee table and instead slammed his face into the corner. Of course he got super close to his eyeball! ARGH! After I did a once over and realized his eyeball was fine, I took a small nerve pill, but as the day has progressed poor little's got a shiner!!! Yikes!!!! 

I'm sure it won't be his last, but geesh, this morning was enough to give this Newbie Mama a heart attack!!! Let me just say it one more time..." I heart crawling......"

Happy Thursday!

Mommy's Wish List......

Dear Santa,

I'm pretty sure you know about all the small stuff I would like this Christmas, like pjs, L.L bean tote bags, automatic wine opener, coffee table books, workout clothes, a new robe, and maybe a new collar for Tana, but in case you were wondering what would throw me over the moon in excitement here are a few ideas. Of course, I don't want everything on my list, but wanted to give you a bunch of ideas.... just in case you were wondering...... 

I really want to finish my collection of barware from William Sonoma,
 in case they ever decide to discontinue it. I still need the following:

herehere, or here
I'm trying really hard to eat healthy and work out six days a week! As you may know, my 2012 goal is to run the San Antonio Rock N' Roll Marathon, this heart rate monitor would be greeeeaaaaat!


I'd really like this frame, but in a key lime color, in the largest frame they have (30x40) for above our mantel. I think it would be absolutely adorbs. Please disregard the price tag. Santa, this could be an heirloom...... (heeheee) 

I am in love with this beautiful monogram necklace; however, my husband thinks it'll make me look like Puff Daddy ( you know- the rapper), but I don't care. I think it's cute!

I'd really like this Silhouette Machine. Why? Because then I could label everything, not to mention make cute cards, etc. And let's be honest I'm a crafting freak.


And this North Face, well, I've wanted one since I can remember and now that I'm a Mom and in and out of the house as much as I am, this would be a great jacket to throw on as I race out the door- just saying :)

And finally, Light Brown Revas..... why do I need this expensive of a shoe.... honestly...... well honestly, no reason at all, other than I realllllllyyyyyy like them.....did I mention I've been REALLY good this year?????!?!?!?! 

And just because....

Like I said Santa, you've always been reallllyyy good to me, but I just wanted 
to give you a few ideas, in case you found yourself stumped :)
