More Reindeer Games

She just loves those antlers.


And the Rudolph song.

This is how Daddy and Miss R went grocery shopping this morning. Yup, in public. Singing all the way.


Merry Christmas!

The Nose Knows

Category: Christmas, Pictures – Mommy Rimes – 8:29 am

I know just about everyone has a pair of those reindeer antlers, or at least a santa hat. We also have the privilege of owning a glowing reindeer nose.


You may not be able to see the glowing nose, but it’s there.


The antlers went on too. But you’ll never know, because my camera does not react faster than a 2 year old.

Jingle Bells

Category: Christmas, Pictures – Mommy Rimes – 1:08 pm

Mommy and Daddy had a “moment” this week.

Our first child’s first Christmas production.


And she did not disappoint. After 2 weeks of practicing Jingle Bells-with the hand shaking for the bells-she got up in front of everyone and refused to sing. Not only refused to sing, but pulled her dress up right around her belly button.


Not that you’ll see that picture, because we didn’t get any. Not for lack of trying. Daddy and I both thought THOSE would be wonderful to have on hand when she turned 16.


Despite not singing one of her favorite songs, she was still cute. And the fact that the entire program lasted less than 20 minutes didn’t hurt either.


She recovered quite nicely after the program was over.


A special thank you to Aunt Deb for the absolutely adorable dress. Miss R loved wearing it and twirled several times before we were allowed to continue with socks and shoes.

Strike a Pose

And with our super cool new hat from our friend Nicole,


Miss R learns how to vogue in front of the camera.


She is such a camera hog.


But what a cutie.


Thanks Nicole!

Merry Christmas to you too!

Christmas Gifts and Crab

Category: Christmas – Mommy Rimes – 3:37 pm

So, I’ve been feverishly knitting, sewing, crafting, and cooking for the holidays. I’ve come up with yet another very cute little knit item that takes roughly 2 hours of knitting to finish up.  I’m not going to tell you what it is, because my mom reads this site and she’s TOTALLY getting one.  But I will tell you, they are Cute with a capital C.  And terribly funny.

Mom-the horse people will love this one.

In other news, the Quilt along is going well.  I’ve finished the 3rd block, but no pictures yet.  Sorry.

As for Christmas goodies, the caramel corn is so far my favorite.  But I’m also wanting to try some freezer cookies.  That way I can make it up now and cook them up later when I’m terribly busy.

I also made some yummy crab Alfredo last night.  Really good.

I melted 1/4 cup of butter in a skillet with some garlic.  Then added crab flakes, 1 cup of heavy cream/milk (the recipe called for half and half, but I didn’t have any), and some pepper. Then once that bubbled up and got thicker, I poured it over some noodles.

As my husband said, “this is great, I can’t believe you just threw this all together.”

I highly recommend this for anyone who wants to impress but has only 20 minutes of prep time.  I don’t even think it took me that long.

I just realized this is a slightly disjointed post, but oh well.  That’s the way it goes.

Christmas Joy

Category: Christmas – Mommy Rimes – 12:27 pm

Baby Rimes received many wonderful, noisy, battery-eating toys for Christmas. And wouldn’t ya know? She loves to crinkle all the wrapping paper better than any of these intelligence boosting musical toys.
A big thank you to Auntie Steph and Grandpa for the Leapfrog table. We have been singing “bumpy bumpy bumpy” for a week now.
Thank you to Grandma Hume and her Leapfrog overhead toy. The colors are marvelous.
To Grandma and Grandpa Herrman, a huge thank you for the future college fund. While there’s just enough in there now for a hamburger and one textbook, we are looking forward to sending her to college for 4 years.
And thank you to all the great grandparents, cousins, great aunts and uncles for the contributions to the college fund and keeping our baby in the cutest pink outfits imaginable.

First Christmas Pictures

Category: Christmas, Pictures – Mommy Rimes – 6:44 am

We have Christmas pictures! Baby Rimes was such a good girl in her adorable Christmas outfit. She didn’t slobber, drool, spit up, or suck on it at all. And we even managed to get a couple of very cute pictures. Look for your Christmas card in the next week!

All I want for Christmas is my Two Front Teeth

Category: Adventures in Parenting, Christmas – Mommy Rimes – 9:18 am

There I was, enjoying my cute little drooly princess when all of a sudden, a very loud screaming fest started. She was quite content to giggle and scream quite loudly, so I giggled along with her. I looked down and there they were…. the first little buds of two front teeth. But now the unhappy screaming has begun. She is cranky and irratable and miserable. Soon, soon, soon they will be wonderful baby pearly whites.

Then the real fun can begin….mashed bananas will be my favorite I think.
