A few Pictures

There's been a lot of snow recently so Abby and Mommy are gettting ready to go outside.

She's ready!

Abby LOVES to dress up, here is a close up, there is a cute video of her dancing below.

Here's another, how cute. Gotta love the matching shoes (not really matching) but she loves them.

Mommy thought it would be fun to put Duke in Abby's skirt. haha

Christmas Trees and other stuff.

I saw that we haven't updated the blog for a while so I figure I'd get some videos and pictures up for all to see. Enjoy.

Abby likes to "Hide" under the blanket and have Mommy come find her. It never gets old.

If you ask Abby to make a funny face, this is the face she makes.

Abby in her Thanks Giving Day Dress. How pretty.

Abby Airplane. She'll probably still be doing this when she's 10. It's one of her favorite activities. She always requests that Daddy give Mommy an airplane after she gets one. She thinks it's hilarious. (it is pretty funny.)

Here's our $15 Christmas Tree from Menards! Pretty Snazzy!

Trying to get a cute picture infront of the tree but for some reason Abby kept patting Jason's tummy.

Abby wanted a picture of her and her dolls in front of the tree.

Our stockings. My mom made each one of these. Mine is from when I was a kid, Jason's was when we got our house together and Abby's is a gift from my mom 2 Christmas's ago.

Funny Quote from Abby:

"Mommy, I ate the crud" interpretation: Mommy, I ate the crust (referring to her sandwich)

We took this movie of Abby one night after she got home from daycare. We did not teach her to say these things and she says Tommy at daycare taught her this joke. Also, Abby is excited to see her cousins from Oklahoma too.

"Give me Candy!"

On October 31st, Abby learned how to demand candy from the neighbors. We only went to a few peoples houses around Jason's parents and my parents houses since it was so cold. We'd been talking about trick-or-treating for about a week before we actually went and we even did a test run right before we left with Daddy and Abby out on the porch and Mommy inside waiting to hand out the candy if the right words were spoken ... but, of course, the first house we went to, my little Cinderella Princess toddled up to the door, knocked with her mittened hand and yelled, "GIVE ME CANDY!" She had the concept right I guess, needless to say, by the end of the night, she'd figured out what the magic words REALLY were.

Here are some pictures of my little Cinderella Princess, dress courtesy of my Mom. THANKS MOM!!! (Theres a few other random pictures as well, hopefully they make you laugh.)

Kinda of a Fuzzy picture but it's definately Cinderella.
Checkin' out the pumpkin.

This is the lady that heard her yell "Give me Candy!" She thought it was pretty funny.

Even though she's 2, she still likes to cuddle. Mommy really appreciates this. Cuddles before bedtime.

Someone needs a haircut. Abby or Mommy? By the way, I heard from Jason that no-one can tell that that's my hair on Abby's head. I'm standing behind Abby with my head upside-down resting on her head. It's not a huge wig, it's really my hair. :)

Halloween Pictures

Since it's October, everyone is in swing of putting pumpkin pictures on their blogs and we decided to follow suit. We didn't go anywhere special, we just picked up a pumpkin at the Knollwood Mall Pumpkin patch and then carved the pumpkins on Tuesday night. Here are the pictures we took.

Before we left to go pick out the pumpkin.

At the pumpkin patch, the first one she sees is almost bigger than her. "Oh, I want this one mommy!" (My thoughts were, 'good grief, we can't afford that at 39 cents a pound.')

Pickin' the Perfect Pumpkin

It was a little dirty so Abby wanted to wash it off. She's such a neat freak. She OBVIOUSLY didn't get that gene from me.

We all had jobs, Abby pulled the guts out, Jason seperated the seeds and I scrapped the inside.

Abby told us what kind of expression she wanted on the face, she chose a happy face.

The finished product.

Abby was so proud.

I love Saturday's (and other pics)

I LOVE SATURDAYs ... Saturdays are family days for the Beals. We all sleep in (sometimes till 8:30) we bum around in our slippers and bathrobes, sipping coffee and just goofing around till it's time to get dressed. Here's some Saturday pictures. Some of these pictures Abby took.

Here's our slippers

Here's our Coffee, Abby took this picture.

Here's Abby's Robe

Here's the Fam, even Duke got in on the picture.

Even Duke has a Robe. He really doesn't like it though.
Also, here's a little video of Abby Doing a magic trick. She tries to copy Jason and she hasn't quite mastered the trick but it's cute.

So, Jason got some sweet FREE tickets to the Arboretum through work and a few weekends ago, it was BEAUTIFUL outside and we decided to utilize the weather and use the tickets. Here's a bunch of the pictures we took. I highly recommend going here, it might be even more beautiful during the fall season. Enjoy the pictures.

Another Waterfall

Vine Flowers

Koi Pond, Abby couldn't get enough of these fish.

More Fish!

Abby and Daddy sitting by the pond.

Some of you may know that Jason has a tattoo of a Abby's name with her birth flower, we just happened to find her birth flower growing at the Arboretum. It is called a Larkspur lily.

Little Miss Abby Pants walked the entire time. She was such a trooper, she found ALL the water fountains.

These were the biggest petunias I've ever seen. I just had to get a picture of them.

Daddy and Abby in one of the Japaneese gardens.

Statue of Mother and child in the Hasta Garden

Daisies ...

Stair Climber ...

Abby has 1 speed to keep up with mommy and daddy ... and it's not run, it's not walk, it's JOG. She basically jogged the entire time we were there.

Quick picture with mom between the hanging trees before we go home. Mom is always the one taking the pictures so it's rare to get one with Abby and Mommy together.

Pictures, Pictures, Pictures

Where has the time gone? We haven't posted many new pictures lately so here are a few cute ones from the past 2 months or so.

Jason replaced the alternator on my's car a few weeks ago and Abby decided she wanted to help so Daddy suggested she use the tools to fix her own car. It's funny because if you were to ask her if she can drive a car she'd say "yep, I have my own car that I drive, it's red." (If you can make this picture bigger, you can see that she's wearing some of my safety goggles that I had for chemistry class in college. I knew those would come in handy some day. :) )

Abby wanted to play dress up so we took out her new dress up clothes she got for her birthday and then I took out some old clip-on earings from my days of dress up at Grandma Gerry's house. She loved the noise they made when she turned her head back-and-forth. Biz and Bobby probably recognize these earings too.

Quick picture with Mommy. I have no idea how she became such a girly-girl. I was more of a tom-boy growing up. Hopefully she likes playing sports cuz she's doomed to play soccer if she like it or not. (kidding) You can't see it in this picture but she even has her fingers and toes painted bright red, what a glamor girl.

This picture reminds me somewhat of Tom Cruise in "Risky Business" (Sort of ...)

This kid has quite the sense of humor. She's pretty much ALWAYS happy. I'd say she's either laughing or smiling at least 95% of the day. Amazing.
