happy hallo-thanks-birth-mas!

It's hard to believe that Christmas is almost here?!  I haven't even posted pictures from {gulp} Halloween yet {shaking finger at self}.  Therefore, this post might be a little on the long side...I have 2 Holiday's, a new job & a FIRST birthday party to catch you up on!

Let's get started!

This Halloween (or as I was referring to it as "OWLWEEN"), Dafney decided to dress up as her favorite woodland character...the owl :)  {Okay, her Mother might be a little, tiny bit obsessed with all the cuteness of everything OWL}.

Since she was only 10 months at the time, we just stayed home & handed out candy!

Isn't she the CUTEST Owl you ever did see??

Not only was this Dafney's first Halloween, it was also her very first Thanksgiving!  She enjoyed herself some Turkey, Mashed Potatoes & Veggies...it was a true Thanksgiving feast :)  She was thankful for the tupperware cabinet at Grandma & Grandpa's :)

We spent the day with my parents, sister & brother-in-law.  It was very low key & VERY relaxing!  Not only did we eat until our hearts content, we watched football & enjoyed each other's company.  It truly is my favorite Holiday ever!

Just another day at work...don't worry it's non-alcoholic :)
In mid-November, I started a new job at the University.  I'm still doing accounting work, but now I'm working for the Pediatrics Department.  It's the "other side" of what I was doing before.  Though I've only been here for just over a month, I can already tell that the dynamic here is MUCH better.  The people all seem really nice & are always willing to help.  They actually get along well here & work together as a team.  It's totally refreshing & I am so much happier.  I'm hoping this is the change I needed!

A couple weeks ago, we ventured out to the Mall to traumatize our kid bring Dafney to see Santa.  We only had to wait in line for 25 minutes.  She was in a great mood while we waited in line...then it was our turn.  We walked up to Santa & I handed her to him & she arched her back & started to kick & scream.  She wanted nothing to do with him.  But, since we're those parents, we had to snap a picture...you know, for the "baby book" ;)

Who IS this creepy guy?  GET ME OUT OF HERE....NOW!!
I also have to update you on Dafney's first birthday & party, but that truly deserves a post all to itself!  I hope to get the update done before summer ;)

I'll leave you with some pictures from the last month or so of our sweet little girl!

Macaroni is my FAVORITE food!

Look...I can feed myself :)
I love to read!

I've changed SO much since I was born!
