Miss Delyla

Delyla is a ham. She loves to kid around. Some of the funniest things about her right now are:

You have, I mean HAVE to call her Delyla. If you call her honey, or goof ball or anything, she says "I no goofball, I Delyla."

She is in charge of wiping in the potty department. We are potty training and she is super independant about it. - Super ewwww...thank you sanitizer companies

She loves to make faces. She'll say look and make the silliest face and then she'll tell you what that face is - mad, silly, sad, suprise!

She is all about her hair. We bought some spray in detangler stuff and she has it in her hand every morning. She says she wants pony tails, one or two...or honey buns (where you don't pull the ponytail all the way through). She'll choose her bow or barrette. She got an Ariel hair brush for Christmas and always wants to brush my hair with it. Not so hard Delyla!:) Too bad she's not so excited about brushing her teeth. We got some rollers for her hair and she thought she was so special - she looked adorable before and after, although you can't really see how pretty it was in the picture, believe me, she looked super sweet.

Delyla chooses what to wear. Even if it doesn't match. Even if it really doesn't match. I'm going to have to start taking pictures.

She has to sleep with her door open. She throws a fit if you try to shut it before she is asleep. I think she likes to see what we are doing - or what she is missing out on.

She thinks she likes Dora. She'll say " I watch D-D-D-D-D-Dora" like the theme song. We'll turn it on, but she never really sits to watch it. I know, Dad is saying...where'd she get that? I rarely sit through anything either.

She copies Dalton all day long. If I serve lunch and Dalton says he doesn't like it. Delyla doesn't like it either. If Dalton takes a bath Delyla takes a bath. If Dalton goes potty, Delyla goes potty. If Dalton says he wants cheetos, Delyla wants cheetos. If Dalton is talking about poop, yup, Delyla is talking about poop. If Dalton jumps off a bridge....well, anyway. Hopefully Dalton will grown into being a really good example, because she sure watches everything he does.

We are so glad to have our little Delyla.

Uncle Spanky

Old McSpanky came to town e-i-e-i-o
And on his lap he has 3 clowns e-i-e-i-o

Jason (Jon's youngest brother) suprised us by coming to town the week after Christmas. It was awesome to have him here. Here's a run down of what we did: ate, watched football, ate, snowboarded, watched football, ate, watched football, snowboarded, ate....

It was so fun - now I need a diet for my new years resolution though!!!

Christmas at the Bohannon's

Christmas was great this year. Ebay is my new best friend;) Living in an area where shopping is limited, we still were able to enjoy a wonderful Christmas. The tree was gorgeous and had a few presents for everyone. Dalton and Delyla were vigorously opening presents as you can see from the pictures. On Christmas Eve, they opened their pj's ( a tradition) and then we went to Gammy's to open her presents for them.

Christmas morning was super fun. Santa brought a bunch of Littlest Pet shop animals and accessories. The kids were having so much fun playing with them that we were able to cook and eat breakfast before even getting to the presents. It was nice that the morning was slow.

Darion's favorite present was a Halo action figure. Dalton's favorite was a big rig and a remote contral dump truck. Delyla really liked her Ariel pj's and panties. By the way...Edward was my stocking...Isn't Santa the best?

In the past few years, we have spent Christmas with much more of our family than we were able to this year. We really missed having Mema and Poppy around as well as our siblings that are in Texas and Michigan. All in all it was very peaceful and fun to be home together.
