So try as I might, I just could not fix the stupid video from Christmas and get it on the computer. Denny even tried helping me but eventually I just got frustrated. I'll try giving it another go this weekend. Just in case I don't figure out the stupid thing, I plan on making DVD's for everyone of Sophie's 1st Christmas and her birthday. Her party is this Saturday, so hopefully I get that done soon. Besides that, we all got over being sick. Happy day!

So we had a great Christmas and got it all on video, the only thing is we don't have the right cord to connect the camera to the computer. So Denny will be picking one up tomorrow evening, hopefully I can get the videos up tomorrow night. I'll go ahead and give you the play by play for now. We got up around 10 this morning (I love sleeping in) and came up to get breakfast. Then I set up the laptop for my mom, so she could watch Sophie's first Christmas. She loved watching Sophie open all her gifts. Half way through Sophie got tired though, and just got a bit cranky. She loved ripping up the paper and showing everyone her gifts. It was adorable. Then my mom opened the gifts we mailed out to her, we said our goodbyes, and cleaned up the mess. Then we headed out to Grandma Tina's house. (She is on a trip, so that's why she isn't in the videos.) Once we got there the girls opened the gifts we brought them, and then we opened ours. Sophie was pro at opening gifts by now. After we were all done Melissa "cooked" us dinner... she just put pre-made meals into the microwave. :P She was still convinced that counted as cooking. I'll put up the videos tomorrow night. Hope you all had a Merry Christmas.

So I finally finished my nativity scene. I only got one picture of it before my stupid camera died, but I'll take some more when we open Christmas presents. I also took pictures of the stockings I made. :) I planned on adding one "doo dad" every year to each of the stockings that reflects our personalities.
For the past two days Sophie has had some really watery poo (tmi I know, get over it) and she threw up on me last night. So I'm going to have my dad drive us to the doctors today. I thought I would share the story of last night. About 1:30 AM Sophie woke up, I knew her tummy was bugging her so I picked her up and went to feed her. The moment I laid her back she threw up ALL over me. Delightful, no? She didn't really know what happened, so she just got upset and screamed. Denny slept right through this, he sleeps through everything. I pushed him and told him to get up beceause I needed help to change Sophie. His exact words : "Well get her out of the bed." What a jerk right? So I got out of the bed and rocked Sophie in the chair to keep from punching Denny dead in the face. He went back to sleep. She calmed down a bit and I got up to grab her new clothes. I laid her down in our bed so I could change her and once again Denny told me to put her on the changing table. I wanted to throw her dirty clothes at him, instead I just ignored him. He finally got up and changed the puke covered blankets. Ah... marital bliss. :P He is by far the crabbiest person I have ever had to wake up. Hopefully Sophie won't be like that.
Let me start off by saying I HATE the cold. Winter is by far my least favorite season. Last Friday I took Isaak and Sophie to the post office so we could mail off Christmas gifts. On the way back home we were going about 20 mph because I hate driving in the snow. Then a wonderful woman decided to try and brake once she got to a stop sign, instead of fanning the break sooner. The stupid woman went right through the stop sign and crashed right into us. The truck bounced off and went into the oncoming traffic, lucky everyone was able to stop before we got hit again. Sophie didn't even notice, and no one was hurt. So I pulled off to the side of the road and the police came. An hour later I was able to take a very cranky Sophie home. I will never drive in the snow again.

Sophie has recently decided that her favorite place is the pantry. She loves pulling EVERYTHING out and doing what she pleases with it. The other day I was cleaning the kitchen and let her sit in the pantry while I did so. I heard something fall, and figured I better go check to see if she was still alive. All I saw was a lake of chips coming out of the pantry. Then I heard little teeth munching on the chips. I looked in and saw Sophie sitting on the floor, she looked up, smiled, and handed me the bag. At least she knows how to share. :P

My little goober is just all over the place nowadays. She is using a big girl sippy cup now, the ones with a straw. She has a VERY strong personality and I love it. She is a little ball of energy and keeps me on my toes. Just yesterday Denny was taking a shower while I was doing my hair in the bathroom. Sophie LOVES bath time. She kept opening the shower curtain trying to play with the water. Eventually she reached too far over and dove head first into the shower. I had just done her hair too... figures. Denny picked her up and I pulled her out, she was soaked from her shoulders up. The dork. God knows that won't stop her from doing it again.
