It turned out to be quite a lazy Sunday. The laundry sat for another day, the house stayed a little more cluttered than usual and cutie walked around in her diaper until noon! Sometimes that's just what you need to recharge the soul :) Maybe tomorrow we'll get around to using the Christmas cookie cutters and finish what we started!
Elly thought it was great fun to blow on the flour mixture and watch it fall to the floor. It was around that time that mommy decided it was time to move on to the next step!

The PRECIOUS Carpenter family

Her mouth, the furniture, her face...
Of course IN her mouth...
And even on poor Sampson!
Elly caught in the act of torturing her poor owl! Good thing there were two in the package, mommy got to do one to her satisfaction and hang it high on the tree to keep him safe ;)
*Did you notice the gut on my little Cutie?!

Oh Abby...are you ready for some FUN?
Heck yeah! I'm on my way!
Maybe start with a little grass picking...
Followed by a little rolling down the hill...
A quick hug to recharge...
And end it all with a little fun in the fountain!
If I remember correctly, before Elly handed over this glance, mommy had given "the look" followed by a stern "Elly, don't you climb up on that fountain."

Kris's parents got us a video camera for Christmas last year. Of course, when I tried to turn it on this morning, the battery was dead. I whipped out my old digital camera at the last minute and was able to catch a bit of Elly's reaction when she saw the Christmas tree all lit up! Unfortunately, I didn't get her huge GASP and grin when she spotted it! It was priceless! It's not the best quality of video but you get the idea. The REAL video camera is charging as I type this. It will be ready to go for Christmas morning when Elly discovers the treats the big jolly guy left her...that is if she is a good girl for the remainder of the holiday season :)

The finished product! I'm still without a tree topper :( I just can't seem to find one I like. They all seem so gaudy!
We actually have our first gift under the tree! Thanks Gallemore's Elly can't wait to rip into it! Literally...she's been eyeing it ever since I brought it home last week :) I'm curious to see what kind of trouble cutie will get into with the tree this year.

With a bit of editing, I think I got a few keepers. I'll keep the big winner a secret. You'll just have to wait to get the masterpiece in the old school way...snail mail! I guess this kicks off the holiday season for the Roebuck family :)

I'll take a sprinkle please...and don't forget the chocolate milk!

Too cool for school...
Enough with the pictures it's time to trick-or-treat!
Come on mom! I'm going with or without you!

This is the best full on picture I could get. Once she gets her paws on mommy's water bottle, there's no getting it back!
Borrowing Ali's necklace. You never know who you may run into at the TCU football games ;)
This little guy was sitting on the bleachers next to us. He was so cute and got a real kick out of Elly.
"You can be the quarterback, and I'll be the head cheerleader!"
"Touchdown TCU...I think we should kiss..."

Elly enjoying the local music. Hopefully this will be the one and only time she will be dancing on top of a bar!
Again, for you non Texans, Gruene is known for two things. Gruene Hall (the oldest working dance hall in Texas) and the GRISTMILL!! It is located right in the middle of town, overlooking the Guadalupe River. It has gorgeous scenery and amazing food! We'd had a long day so Cutie didn't last too long. Even shoveling our food in our mouths, it was quite delicious :)
The many lemon faces of Elly! The girl loves a good lemon :) She even eats the rind...kinda gross if you ask me.
Somewhere along the way, Elly lost a white shoe. How lucky that there was a random brown sandal in the car that fit the same foot! We got many smiles from people walking down the sidewalk :)
"...Gruene Hall! It is, it is!"
Elly got her groove on, right there on the sidewalk. She's quite the little ham. LOVES attention from anyone and everyone! If someone says hi to her or waves in her direction, they are her new best friend. Every ounce of her personality comes from Kris. Neither have ever met a stranger :)
