He always wants me to put him in "sissy's bed"....he thinks it is just so great to play in there. I guess now that he doesn't sleep in a crib he thinks its cool :). There was a time that he was just dying to get out...haha!
He says "Mama, put by sissy in here!"..and I do...and they just play and play. I leave the room and can just hear them giggling away. It just melts my heart to see them playing together.

Denver is a really cool place to visit....I just wish that it wasn't so far away or I would go more often! Looking forward to seeing Mary here in just 17 more days!! YAY :)

FABULOUS HOLIDAY BLOG CHALLENGE!
Today's topic is: Favorite Holiday Tradition New or Old
I LOVE the holidays and tradition…so this is fun for me! Blake and Olivia are so young that we have really not developed many traditions YET….but I am really looking forward to starting some with them :)
For the first time this year we are doing Elf on a Shelf! I think that the concept is so fun…and Blake is starting to catch on!! We have a tradition of putting the Christmas decorations up the weekend after Thanksgiving. Blake was a big help this year! I have gotten the kids an ornament for each year….I write their name and the year on it. I think that it will be fun to look back at them all each year. So far Blake only has 3 and Livi 2….but in years to come there will be lots :)!!This is our tree from last year....it seems to have WAY more stuff on it this year!
After spending time with Ryan’s family we go to my parents’ house and spend the night there, so we can wake up there on Christmas morning and spend the day with them! My sister is coming home, so we are really looking forward to that! We always have lots of great food and fun. Mary with little 9 day old Olivia on Christmas Eve 2010
Blake got a "hot rod" from papa last year!!
Playing outside on Christmas day
My parents live on a lake so we can skate and ice fish!
All of these holiday traditions will just get more and more fun as the kids get older (not that I am wishing away the years...just something to look forward to!)

Dr. did another scope to look down at her throat. I have to say that that is one of the most painful things to watch and be a part of. The older she gets, the harder it becomes. She fights us like crazy now. I have to hold her legs between my legs and her arms down at her side. A nurse has to bear hug me from behind and hold her head. The dr. goes in with the scope…and poor Livi just screams the whole time!! The whole process only takes a few minutes, but it is the longest few minutes EVER!!
The doc was very thorough with Livi yesterday, and that makes me feel good. She still breaths very raspy…but he doesn’t think that is because of her larynx or anything in that region anymore. He assumes that it is just congestion.
He looked long and hard at one specific spot at the base of her throat…and he couldn’t really tell what it was. He said that he couldn’t say for sure, but that it MAY be a cyst. It really looked NOTHING like the first one. That one was huge and looked like a balloon about to pop. This spot now is more of just an abnormality. It isn’t big or protruding into her airway. He doesn’t think that there is anything to worry about.
That being said, he want to see her again in 4 months for another scope and to see if anything has changed with the spot. Hopefully it looks the same (or better) then and we are good to go!!
She is SUCH a good baby and I am so proud to take her anywhere with me. Aside from the few minutes during the scope…she was a perfect little angel!!
