Merry Christmas Issabella

Dear Issabella,
This was the first year that you wanted to go and see Santa. We waited in line for 45 mins. You got up to him and were a super big girl. All you have been asking for is the new Disney Fairy DVD. When he asked you what you wanted you said, " A Baby Doll"! You were in deep discussion with him and it was so neat to see you excited about him.

You can't wait for Christmas and for Santa to come to your house. I hope he brings you just what you want. 

Merry Christmas
Love, Mommy

This and That

Hello! We are still here! We moved at the end of October and we don't have internet at our house. Boo! Seth got a transfer and is now working in a new district. Still doing the same job just different location. He is enjoying his new county but missing the fast pace of the South Bend area. Issabella started a new daycare and seems to be enjoying it. They do a lot of crafts and she likes that. It has been nice because Seth gets to some what make his schedule and has been staying home with her more. She is having a hard time with me being gone more. I have to drive an hour and a half to work and then back. Boo!

For Halloween she was Jesse from Toy Story. She really enjoyed walking around with her cousins and trick or treating.

I promise to fill you all in more later! So much to tell!

Free at last...

Issabella has been going to Riley's for checkups and she was "released" on Wednesday. The doctor said she has built up 6 of the 8 pneumonia antibodies in her system and she should never get those six again. Just hope she does not get the other two anytime soon. We celebrated by gong to Joe's Crab Shack on Clearwater Lake in Indy. We sat outside and enjoyed our lunch. Issa loves corn and poor Seth only got a few bites of his.

Yummy corn Daddy!

Seth's steam pot. Everything was good in it!

This makes me laugh out loud. She was like a crazy animal with her mac and cheese. Dipping her french fries in it.

First Haircut.

Issabella got  her first hair cut on 8-31-12. Her hair was pretty long in the back and super short on the side. So we had it cut to match the sides. She sat in the chair the whole time, like she was an old pro. She kept saying I am getting a hair cut. Love that girl!

She was a great client.

Took off all the long locks in the back.

Look at her arm over the back of the chair.

Looking at herself in the mirror.

So Cute!

Getting the final check.

Game Night

Issabella wanted to play a game tonight. We don't have any games her age. So we played Yahtzee. Santa will have to bring her some games. Here are a few pics from our Yahtzee game.

Some people may not believe this....

....but we have a cat!

 A kitten showed up in our drive way last week and Issabella has adopted it. It is very friendly and lets Issabella pick it up and carry it around. The cat greets us when we pull in the drive way just like Chubs did. Issabella spent Saturday morning playing with the cat in her tent outside. It kept running out and she would chase it down.

The Summer of Indiana Beach

Issa, Me, Lisa, and Logan on our first trip to the Beach.

If we had to sum up our Summer of 2012, it would have to be with the words Indiana Beach. We went to the Beach I think a total of six times. Twice with Logan, twice with Seth's side of the family and once with Casi. It is super cheap for us to go because Issa can ride the rides for free and Seth and I only have to pay $2.50 to get in. I know I have mentioned before but the Beach has some of the best tacos around and we spent a fortune on tacos this summer...(so maybe going to the beach was not cheap after all)! Here are some pics of our Summer of Indiana Beach.

She loves the bumper cars.

Brown County Weekend

My dad had his birthday on Sunday and Issabella, Casi, and I went down and stayed with him and Linda. They were camping and we had fun walking through Nashville. Here are a few pics from our weekend.

Sipping on Chocolate was gross...she seemed to like it.

Issabella loves her Aunt Casi.

Beach take 2

We live very close to Indiana Beach and go there a few times a season for dinner! They have great tacos. We went a few weeks ago and was hoping to be able to let Issa and some of her cousins ride some rides. We got to the Beach at 5:30 and that week they were closing at 6 every night. So we tried again the following week and it was a success. All of Seth's brothers went with their families and Seth's mom. Here are a few pictures from that night.

Ryker showing Issabella how to play the frog game.

A family that skeeballs together stays together!

Daddy, Uncle Nate, Uncle Zack, and Uncle Caleb won this for me.

Hailey and Issabella enjoying a popcorn break.

Uncle Zack and Aiden, Seth, Issabella, Austin, Nate, Ryker, Caleb, and Gusta all went on the bumper cars.
Picture is fuzzy but Issa and Seth had fun.

Family shot on the horses.

I love slushies.

Right before she screamed and wanted off,

Good old Tacos!

All of Seth's brothers and mom.
