Lets Play Catch-up!!!!!!!

My last posts documented our Christmas Eve celebrations and nerves about Lani's tubes, but i never got around to posting about christmas day or Lani's awesome first birthday!!!

Christmas Day we woke up around 8 am and the 3 of us opened presents. 

As you can see she definitely enjoyed opening all the presents !!!

It was so special for us to get to share this special moment together.  After that we went to my parents house and spent the day hanging out with family and eating a ton of great food. 

Needless to say after all that eating, we called it a very early evening.
what a great way to spend lani's first christmas

stay tuned for the awesome bday post!!!!

A year ago... Happy Birthday Lani

A year ago today i wrote a post about a little girl who changed my life forever, and still today I feel just as in love as i did then.  The last 24 hours has been a bit bitter sweet.  It began with singing happy bday to Lani at 1 am and watching her dance and smile and laugh.  It was a great first birthday for my sweet baby.... but all night i've been a nervous crying wreck.  Thinking about this morning and her surgery (She's having tubes put in).... so as we get ready to the hospital, and she is still sleep, i'm trying to get all my tears out now.  I love this little doll baby so much and thank God everyday for putting her little feisty but in my life.

Langston's First Christmas Eve

We actually began our Christmas celebration in El Paso.  We arrived the Monday before Christmas and immediately went to town decorating the tree and bringing the north pole to the Harris/Davis/Woodard clan arrived, and the feasting began...
After hanging out and having some down time to catch up on our sleep, we headed out to Cattlemans steak house.  You may remember the excitement that surrounded our last trip to Cattlemans.  

  Well this time surely matched up.  not only did we get to hang out with all the family, we also found out some exciting news for the family....  
And no its not me... Cant tell you who just yet, but it will be coming soon!!!
 Needless to say we are very excited though for this family member and will be posting more as soon as i'm allowed to....

After Cattlemans we partied it up in El Paso, and Lani was even fortunate enough to meet her future father in law.... Daddy didnt think that was too funny, but the us moms are setting some thing into action... maybe some skype

So after a very peaceful/late flight we arrived back at home just in time for Christmas.  Literally we got back at like 11:30.  The next morning we woke around 8:30 and opened presents with Lani...
