Last night my friend Kelsey and her daughter Delia came over for a visit since she was in town for Christmas. I hadn't seen Delia in person since Asher was about 2 weeks old. Delia is almost 9 months now and crawling all over the place, I guess thats what I have to look forward to! Asher just watched her the whole time and every time we tried to get a picture he just wanted to touch her. I didn't really get a good one so I thought I would post them all.
On Christmas Day we had Dustin's Mom and her husband Steve and Beau, Jodi and Charlee over. Asher and Charlee are so much fun when they are together. They are starting to notice eachother and interact. So cute.
Cousinly Love Dont you wonder what she's telling him?
Asher has been giving me lots of trouble lately when its time to eat. On Christmas everyone thought it was so funny that he was spitting his food back at me. Now that he thinks he can get a good laugh he does it all the time.
Asher had his first Christmas yesterday with Grandpa Ray and Grandma Sue. Asher and Charlee are two spoiled babies! I think they had a good first Christmas. All Asher wanted was a bow and that kept him occupied.
Asher 6.5 Months - Charlee 8 Months
I love this one from his photo shoot with Auntie Taylor
Took me a while to get this post on here, I was having a hard to posting videos. Anyway, last Saturday night was the Popejoy Plumbing Christmas Party. Another wild night as usual! We took a bus (complete with barf bags) to Bloomington and had dinner at the Kobe Japanese Steakhouse, which was really cool. The guys that were cooking liked to have fun and were squirting saki into everyone's mouth. After dinner several people had saki-bombs which is like a jager-bomb but with saki. I stuck to Coors Light. After that we went to the Funny Bone and it was a really good show. I was ready to go home when we got back to town around midnight. Dustin wasn't so ready and finally made it home a little after 3.

I tried to take a couple of videos off all the crazies with us but my camera ran out of memory. So here is a short video from Kobe's.
My beautiful Christmas Tree! I think this might be the last year for the funky tree, doesn't go too well with the rest of the house. The upstairs livingroom. Last week it got new carpet and paint. Thanks Mom and Dad for the hand-me-down furniture!
From the dining room. Note the discoloration on the table. Never leave one of those scented oil things out where it could get spilled...
Dinging room. I LOVE my hutch! It was Grandma Glo's and Grandma Jane refinished it to match my table.
New Kitchen! Bob came last week and painted in here too. Then he did the glass tile backsplash.
Why does everything they make for kids have to be plastic and ugly?

Overall I think we've pretty much adjusted to the new house. There is still a room full of boxes downstairs that I need to go through. There is nothing up on the walls yet either. I order some stuff from Uppercase Living yesterday to put up. Dustin doesn't like having a master bath because I wake him up when I take a shower in the morning. BooHoo. I love living in Fairbury because they deliver your mail right to your front door. Until you've lived somewhere that you have to phyically get out of the car in the rain/now to get it you can't appreciate this. I will post pictures of Asher's room soon. He was still sleeping when I took these this morning.
Last night we went down to Owen's to get our Christmas trees and Santa was there for Asher to get his picture take with. We were a little disappointed with the selection, but we usually arent this late getting a tree. Our white-flocked tree will have to sit outside until we get our carpet in tomorrow. Hopefully we can find our Christmas decorations somewhere in the storage units. Mom and Dad got a 12 foot white-flocked tree that is GORGEOUS! I'll post pics when we get it decorated. Dad loaded their tree, ours and the Kafer's on the rollback then we went to TGI Fridays for dinner. Our house is a bit of a disaster right now. Dustin, Stevie Weber and RJ moved all the furniture yesterday and ripped all the carpet out. Bob is there today painting. Dustin and I both have Wednesday and Thrusday off so I want to get as much done as we can.
We got to laughing this morning when we were stuffing Asher into his "snowsuit" he looked like Randy from A Christmas Story. The hard part was getting him in the carseat, I could barely buckle the belts!
Well after 3 months of living with Mom and Dad they are moving out this weekend! I'm not sure yet if I'm happy or not. I would be happy to have them keep living with us except for Bondo. Sorry buddy, but you have to go. They have moved most of their furniture out already and the house seems a little empty now. Good thing I have 2 storage units full to fill it back up! My Uncle Bob is going to be painting on Monday and then doing a tile backsplash in the kitchen. The new carpet will be put in upstairs on Tuesday. I took Wednesday off to hopefully start unpacking all our crap from storage. Things seem to be moving really fast now! We now have enough room for visitors so they won't have to sleep on the couch and thank God Dustin and I don't have to share a bathroom anymore. Too bad I don't get to keep the cleaning lady.
I think we're really gonna like living back in Fairbury and Mom and Dad will only be a block away. I'll post pictures when we start to get some stuff done. Not like most of you haven't seen the house already :)
I can't believe Asher is 6 months already! He goes to the Dr next Monday so I'll post how big he is next week. Asher continues to be a very happy baby, most of the time. Over the past couple of weeks he has changed so much. Some of his favorite things.
Screeching. Loudly. Food. So far he has LOVED every baby food that he has tried. His jump-a-roo. Sitting up and playing. Watching BooBoo. Uncle RJ & Grandma Jane. Pulling hair.
Asher is spending his big day at home with G-MaMa and the old ladies. Mom and Dad will be moved out this weekend so they are trying to finish up packing. Busy day for a little man!
My Little peanut made a couple of accomplishments this weekend! On Thanksgiving Day he rolled over!!! This has been much anticipated and quite a relief for the Grandma's (as if you could doubt him!) Then Sunday he began sitting up by himself it seemed like overnight. Maybe he was paying attention to Charlee the past couple of days and thought that looked like fun. Hopefully I'll be able to catch him rolling over on video soon.
