Happy 2nd Birthday Addison!

Today Addison turns 2 years old!
Here she is at birth:

1st Birthday

This morning she woke up to a new kitchen!

And had our traditional birthday breakfast with a candle:

Addison attempting to hold up 2 fingers.

One of her gifts from my sister Angie and her family, was a very cute Elf on a Shelf. A tradition we get to start where this magical elf (who Trevor named Elfin Elfa) sits somewhere in your house watching the kids for Santa.  Each night when the kids are in bed, "Elfin Elfa" flies back to the North Pole to report to Santa the kids behaviors, good or bad!  Then he flies back to the Turner house and sits in a new place before morning for the kids to find him each morning! Who will find him first? But no one can touch him or he'll lost his magic powers and won't be able to report to Santa all their Christmas wishes!

The kids are very excited to have "Elfin Elfa" with us now.  It will be fun to see where he sits each day!

Thanks Angie, Jeromy, Hannah & Dylan!

She looks SO much like you when you were little! It took me a minute to wonder why she was wearing sleeveless in December... Oh wait-- NOT Iowa weather! Hope all is well and happy holidays!
