Lots & Lots of Pictures

Okay, I know it's been too long since I've updated this, so I'm just going to post tons of pics. I will write a little note under each one though, so you can see what's been going on in the Garner household. :)
Here is a picture of Abby. You can just feel her sweetness when you look at this picture. Abby is an absolute angel and is just as sweet as she looks. She weighs 11 lbs. now and is 23.5 inches long.

This is Gammy Garner. In this picture she is doing two of her favorite things- holding Abby and rocking in a rocking chair. Those of you who know gammy know how much she loves both of them. :)
This is Abby and Grandpa Dunn. Grandpa seems to have just the right touch with Abby because everytime he holds her, she has this grin on her face. They say that babies can feel goodness. I think that's definitely true.

One of Micah's favorite things to do is play in the sink. He loves to fill up bowls and cups of water and tell me that he is making soup. It does make a mess, but hey, what fun is life if you can't make a mess every once-in-a-while?
Another one of Micah's favorite things to do is take a nice bubble bath. You can barely see his cute, little, head sticking out over the bubbles in this shot.
Christmas was a blast this year! I think it was because Micah really got into it and you could actually get him to behave better just by telling him that if he wasn't nice, Santa wouldn't come.

My dad dressed up as Santa on Christmas Eve and visited us. He brought sacks of candy for everyone (myself, Heath, Micah, Abby, Cory, Danae, Zoey, Beau, Lane, and Grandma Dunn). It was so fun to see the look on Micah's face when Santa came down the stairs and into the family room. He had a great time sitting on Santa's lap and telling him that he wanted "cars" for Christmas.

Abby didn't seem too affected by Christmas. She was very cute though. Above is a pic of Micah and Abby in their Christmas jammies. Micah got Spider Man and Abby got cute red and white striped ones.

Micah loved opening his presents (and everyone elses). If there was a toy under the wrapping, he was thrilled. If it was clothes, he didn't want much to do with it.
Every kids gets into their mother's make-up. What is interesting about this picture though is that aside from the lipstick, Micah also has cover stick under his eyes. He has seen me do the make-up routine so many times, that he actually knows where each cosmetic goes. Sometimes I don't realize just how observant he is.

This is a picture of Abby in one of her Christmas dresses (thank you Gammy & Popi). She looked so pretty. We had people stopping us in church to tell us what a pretty baby we have. Of course, we know that, but we never get tired of hearing it. :)
