Bridget was baptized!

Bridget was baptized this past Saturday at St. Luke, the church where Tyler and I were married. Fr. Steve baptized her. She was pretty grumpy most of the ceremony and so was her sister. Here are some pics from the day. I forgot about the wonderful smell of the oils they put on the babies. She smelled so good!!
Our family of four!
With the Godparents!

Thanks for baptizing me Fr. Steve!


See ya original sin!

This was the same dress that Lily and I were baptized in. It was made out of the leftover fabric from my mom's wedding dress!

Happy Thanksgiving!

What Tyler came home to one night!
Bridget and her buddy Hunter. (Jennie Price's, AGD sister, little guy)

Thanksgiving with Nana.

Bridget's no-toothed smile. You can still see her acne in this pic, but it has cleared up now.

I've been absent for a while. Tyler was on retreat. He left last Tuesday and didn't come back until Friday. It makes for a interesting week of lots of patience and little time for the blog. On top of him being gone, little Bridget got pink eye! Poor thing! Lily has never been on medicine and my 7 week old has. But it has cleared up and she looks much better.

Lily, Bridget, and I got together with a couple of my sorority sisters, who also have kids. It was fun to meet all the new ones and catch up with them.
Bridget update: She's smiling ALL the time and is such a snuggle bug. I love it! She continues to sleep well. Her neck is getting stronger everyday and she can hold her head up for a little.
Lily update: Lily loves her sister, but also loves to give her "love" smacks. My favorite Lily story lately is rather humorous, I think. When I put Lily in time out she cries for Daddy and she cries for Mama when Daddy puts her in time out. Well, we had both put her in time out the other day, so she cries for Ricky, my dad's dog. Of course, ha!

We had Thanksgiving here this year. I made mashed potatoes for the first time ever. I think they turned out pretty good, just a couple of lumps. We had a fierce game of Scattegories. Who wouldn't throw out rotting rhubarb?

Bridget is getting baptized this weekend. We are looking forward to the Mayers coming in town. Uncle Bubba and Auntie Emily are the godparents.

As I type, Tyler is putting up the Christmas lights. He has acquired 20 MORE strands this year. Oh my! If you live close you should drop by, it is usually quite a sight. It is fun that he gets so into Christmas. I think Lily will be blown away by the lights this year. You may also send donations for our electric bill!

Please keep little Lucy in your prayers. She is the daughter of a friend of Tyler's from college.

Help Lily be a Boilermaker!

Another sign that I'm getting older...we have a college savings program for Lily. A minivan, life insurance, a mortgage-I feel like I was just wearing my "I'm 21!" shirt yesterday. Anyways, you can click on the link below

when shopping online this Christmas (or anytime) and help put money in Lily's account. All you have to do is click the link, search for the site where you would like to purchase something (they have almost everything), and a portion of what you spend is put in Lily's account. You don't have to sign up for anything and it's totally free for you!

Happy 1 Month Birthday Bridget!

This first month (and a couple of days, yes, I'm already more late with Bridget's picture than I ever was with Lily) has flown by! Bridget is really a breeze of a baby and has such a sweet personality. Not to mention, she's already very tough, because her sister tends to be a tad rough with her. She just started to smile. In the picture she's just about ready to Boiler Up! So happy to have two little girls! And aren't you so happy birthday bear and the monthly pictures are back? I know you missed them!

Happy Halloween

Finally, the Halloween pictures are posted! It's been slightly hectic around here. Here's Lily with our carved pumpkins. She did NOT like carving the pumpkins. The orange goo totally freaked her out! She wasn't too sure about trick or treating at first. But after a couple of houses, she got the hang of it and didn't want to stop!
Tigger and Grandad!

The 3 girls!

Hey Tigger! Can you see her poor little baby acne?

This is the same costume Tyler wore when he was two. Bamma Mayer made it!!!
