On Saturday night we had "Aunt" Hillary and Adam over for supper. It was fun to visit with them and Morgan had a good time too!

What do I do now????

"Aunt" Hillary has it down

Hopefully Adam figures it out before they have kids. Which according to them is going to be a few years. I think we have some babysitters now! :)

It was great seeing you guys! Thanks for coming over!

Morgan's First Christmas

We opened our family presents on Christmas Eve. Morgan got new jeans, pants, shirts and a sweater. In her stocking she got a book, an ornament and a rattle. Morgan had an eventful first Christmas Day. The morning started out by going to church and then going to Grandpa & Grandma Burton. We had lunch there and then opened gifts. Morgan really could have cared less here but she did get a few cool things. Clothes and books from Grandpa & Grandma and a Bear from Uncle Travis & Aunt Marcy. It even talks!

So tired!!!!

For supper we went to Grandma & Grandpa VZ. She got lots of gifts there too. Toys that make noise (they have batteries!!), a new Michigan football jersey, a stocking full of goodies, a bag full of stuffed animals!!! Morgan had lots of fun. It was fun to see Uncle Eddie and Megan too! Morgan sees Megan more than her Uncle Eddie (who lives in our backyard!!!)
We still have two more parties this weekend. Those are with my mom & dad's sides. So Morgan will get to see all of her cousins. We'll post pictures from that later.

Neal thought that Morgan needed a gift from him. So he went to Meijer and found this wonderful doll! It is possessed. It does five cheers. Two of which are on the video that hopefully you can see!!!!

Merry Christmas!

Our attempt with Boomer!

We would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. We hope the excitement and joy of the birth of Jesus is felt throughout the entire year. Neal and I feel truly blessed this year. We are excited to celebrate our first Christmas with Morgan and teach her the true meaning of Christmas. For those of you that get time off, enjoy it! Life is precious and we are thankful for each day we have with each other, as well as all of our family and friends. Happy Holidays!!!! Love, Neal, Rachel, Morgan & Boomer

Morgan's First Minor Boo Boo!!!!

Morgan gave herself her first boo boo! It really isn't that bad, I'm just glad we don't have pictures this week. She scratched herself really good under her eye. Plus she has plugged tear ducts and we are constantly wiping her eyes. So her other eye is red from wiping it so much! So it has been a rough few days! Poor thing!

5 months Old

It is so hard to believe that Morgan is 5 months old today. It was just last year we were telling everyone that we were expecting and now here we are with a 5 month old. There really isn't anything too new to tell about her. We are still waiting for her to roll over. She has a little tooth trying to poke it's way through but that will be quite a while yet before we see that. It is fun to see Morgan doing "new" things each day. She is starting to really form a personality. She likes men way more than women (watch out Daddy!) Neal & I feel truly blessed and we can't imagine life without Morgan.

O Christmas Tree!

I thought I better put our Christmas tree pictures on here. We went and picked our tree out of Neal's cousin's front yard (yes, they were for sale!!!!!) Next year we will do the Christmas tree farm but this year we figured Morgan could careless. We didn't have any rope so Neal rigged something up...electrical wire with the casing taken off. Good thing we only had to go a mile up the road (as you can tell we wouldn't have made it much further!!!!!)

Morgan wasn't too impressed with us decorating the tree and not paying attention to her. However, once I plugged the lights in she thought it was pretty cool!

What a beautiful tree!

"Big Brother"

This morning when Neal was suppose to be getting ready for church he thought he should talk to Morgan and Boomer thought he better watch her too! So of course I had to get a picture of it! Morgan will probably never have a big brother...but she will have Boomer looking after her.

Seriously, she isn't going to do anything!!

Are you guys done looking at me? Just leave me alone!!!!!

4 Month Pictures

I learned my lesson after Morgan's 2 month pictures. DO NOT GO TO WAL MART!!! In the words of Neal, "I got what I paid for." Which isn't true because I paid the same price at Sears, got more pictures and they are super cute!!! So here are just a few of the different pictures that they took....
