I finally have a minute

Hello Grace, and hello all, sorry it has been so long since my last post. Work has been crazy. I am the manager now, so I don't have the free time like I did. These times when I actually have a minute to write a post are few and far between, so it will probably be a while before I can get back after this one.

Anyway, our little girl is doing GREAT!!!!!!!!! Well, Grace does have a nasty cough right now, but other than that she seems to be healthy and loving life. :-) She is getting so big. Mom... well first of all it is a couple days before Christmas ...Mom let Grace open a present last night. It was a Dora the Explorer back pack. She put it on and looked so grown up. All we could do was think about Grace's first day of school, which is a lot sooner than later. Mom almost cried.

But like I said, Grace is getting so big. Her speech has improved a lot. You can sit down and have a little conversation with Grace. It is really cool!!! :-) Grace is a great play mate too. She seems to have a really good and fun imagination. Oh, and you have got to see her hair. We haven't cut it, ever. It is the same hair as when she was born. It is just beautiful. Grace has this one curl in the back that is a perfect curl. Mom and I are afraid to cut it for the fear of the curls not coming back in. :-) I guess we will have to some day, but not today. :-)

For the most part, other than Grace growing and learning, not much has changed. The only thing that is new is that Grace enjoys TV a little more. Wait, let me rephrase that. Grace doesn't necessarily enjoy TV, she enjoys Sesame Street and Dora the Explorer. :-) This is funny: I recently got a nice big TV. You know, I wanted to watch the games and movies. Well I would say at least 80% of the time my nice new big TV has had Elmo, Abby, or Dora on it. :-) I guess that is life. :-)

So anyway, all is well!!! Grace is doing great. Grace, Mommy and I love you very much and are so proud of you!!! You have blessed our life in a way I cannot express in words. Thank you so much. Everybody else, thanks for reading and keeping up with our little angel. :-) I hope everyone has a merry Christmas and a safe and happy New Year. Good luck in 2011. :-)

New Kitchen and Christmas tree!

MaTee bought Miss Grace a kitchen set for Christmas and gave it to us over Thanksgiving.  We decided to put it together while Grace was asleep and when she woke up boy was she excited.  She ran to the kitchen and promptly started to make us breakfast alll morning long!

Happy Holidays Family and Friends!

The Day AFTER Thanksgiving was awesome too!

Thanksgiving night we went to Kevin's parent's house and enjoyed the night and the next day with them.  And since I properly introduced my family, I shall properly introduce Kevin's family as well!

Kevin's parents are Cathi Robinson and Harry Robinson, otherwise known to us as MeMe and PePe.  Corey (introduced in the previous post) is Kevin's brother, and his kids are Arianna and Landon.  Here are some pictures of them from this weekend:

MeMe and Arianna!
Grace playing!
Grace and Landon dancing and playing together.
Grace with Landon's hat on, pacifier and juice in hand and one untied shoe on and one barefoot!
Grace, Landon, and PePe

Here are some pics of the girl's playing (the cute blond girl is one of Arianna's best friends):

Grace loves to dance!!

We love us some Robinson's!!!


Thanksgiving was an awesome one!  Grace, Kevin, Kevin's brother, Corey and I went to Clemson to celebrate Thanksgiving with the Holder's and the Clemens.

Let me digress a bit and introduce you to everyone.

This is my mother Theresa Lynne Clemens, otherwise known as T, TT, PaTee, MaTee and Treesa (not sure what Grace calls her yet):

And she is married to John Clemens, otherwise known as Father Figure, Juan, Papa, and Papa John:

This is my sister, Katherine Grace Holder, otherwise known as Katy, Mama, Aunt Katy and Butthead
(She will appreciate that she has more photos than anyone else....well, besides Grace that is):

And she is married to Heath Anthony Holder, otherwise known as Heath, Daddy and Uncle Heath:

Katy, and Heath have 4 boys.  Oldest to youngest, Tobin Mayer Holder, otherwise known as TOOOOBY:

Bowen Heath Anthony Holder, otherwise known as Boo Bear:

Daniel Bode Holder, otherwise known as Dan Dan:

Lucas Maxwell Holder, otherwise known as Luke:

Of course you know me (otherwise known as Jess, Jesse, Juicy Poop, Aunt CaCa, well the list goes on) and my beau Kevin (Kevy Skillz, Kev Dawg, K Dawg, Uncle Kevin and the list goes on for him too):

Kevin's Brother Corey, otherwise known as Uncle Corey:

Okay, and that was just a partial of who was there, I am missing John's kids: Jonathan and Andrea.  Jonathan's lovely girlfriend Joy, and Andrea's son Andrew.  I am also missing John's wonderful parents Ruth and Jack Clemens.

Okay, back to Thanksgiving.

There was chess:

And Lego playing:

And TV watching:

And playing outside:

And Running, lots of Running:

Grace loved playing with her cousins and her cousins loved her!!!
Little Lucas wanted to take her home with him.  When it was time to leave he grabbed her arm and told her to "come on Gracie, let's go home".
Here are only a few pictures showing Luke and Grace's affection towards each other:

Aunt Katy got some much needed Grace time as well:

As did MaTee:

And Bowen:

And Uncle Corey:

Grace got some much needed time with a KITTY!:

These were our attempts to gather all the kids and take a family photo:

 And like any normal family get together, there was some fighting and some sleeping:

Just because I don't want to end on a playful fighting bad note, I shall leave you with the star attraction of this blog, my lovely talented daughter Grace Anne-Marie Robinson:
Grace baby, Mommy and Daddy love you soooooo much.  You are growing and learning everyday.  Can I ask of you just one thing though?  Please go to sleep better, and stop waking up at 5 in the morning, mommy really needs some more sleep!
love you!

We went to the park on Saturday to let Grace play. And lord we have FUN! She was all over that playground running from one place to the next. Oh course I was there taking photos in between playing with her, and dad was her partner in crime going down the slide and up the stairs, down the slide and up the stairs, down the slide and up the stairs, you get the point! Here are my favorite pictures from the playground:
