I found my point and shoot!

OK, I'll finally admit it. I lost my point and shoot camera. I kept trying to play it off to Nick saying "Oh, it's around here somewhere... it'll pop up sooner or later". It didn't. I frantically searched for, well, let's just say a long time and couldn't find it.

Go figure... while moving & packing, in the back of my closet, I found my silver purse (big, unstructured). It had fallen to the ground (gasp!) and in it were the contents from the NKOTB concert last summer. In that bag was my tiny pink sony point and shoot camera.

I was frantically searching for it because Jenna's vocabulary has taken off. It's been pretty good for awhile now.. but she's starting to speak in SENTENCES. I really wouldn't believe it if it weren't for the video. (um, no video attached now.. moving = EVERYTHING is packed. Everything.) So be prepared for an onslaught of videos...

Videos of her singing, counting!, dancing, eating (mac and cheese with a spoon!)

She's awesome. And making this move oh so worth it!

Please stay tuned...

We're currently in the process of packing up our life and moving down the street. Jenna loves all the fun 'toys' we're bringing out of the woodworks (the tripod is her favorite right now closely followed by the old corded telephone and baby bath tub). However, she also points to where photos were on the wall and starts to fuss. I haven't been able to explain to her that we're moving. And when I use the word move, she repeats and starts spinning in circles as though she's dancing. I can't tell if she's confused or happy, but I feel the same way about the whole thing, too, kid.

I popped on to say sorry for the absence and I realized I have yet to do a 'Christmas' post. yikes! Sooo... photo dump of our last month.

Jenna, all ready to see the snow. WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!
Did I mention she loves Christmas decorations!?
We went to Zoo lights. I was teased for the amount of 'bundling' I did with her, but it was cold! As Jenna would say "Burrr!"
The O family band.
Nick and I went to see DMB in 3D. I snagged the glasses, popped the lenses out and gave them to J. She enjoyed.
But suddenly realized they weren't cool.
Christmas morning. In her princess pj's. When she opened the PJ's on Christmas Eve, she insisted we hang them on the tree so she could ooh and ahhh at them. Cracked me up.
Wearing Aunt Heidi's slippers.
Her favorite toy. Hands down! And, shouldn't everyone vacumme in a tutu?
My little beauty.
This is what happened when I told her there were no more presents to open. Don't feel too bad, she was more than spoiled.
Her eyelashes make me swoon!
Christmas day we went up to Nanny and Poppie's. She looves the rocking horse at their house. And... she throws her head back and says "Naaayy!"
The Russian nesting dolls that are also reserved for Nanny and Poppies. She really likes opening and closing them, spreading them around the floor and then walking away.

So I'll be MIA for a bit longer. I finally found my point and shoot so expect to see a bit of video up soon. Jenna's been quite a chatterbox and LOVES to sing. I love it. She often sings the last word of each line of song. It cracks us up, which in turn cracks her up and then we're all rolling on the ground in a fit of laughter. She makes me so happy, proud and boastful.
