Could it be true?

~ Can anyone guess what this is? Could it be one of Shrek's kids? ~
~ Nope - just Miss Charlotte with Piggy Tails in ... playing with the dog through the window ... how much is that doggy in the window? FREE! (if you're asking me) ~
~ Jolene and Charlotte during one of our many lunch visits to El Loro - YUM! ~
~ Sydney & Jaden ~
~ Christina, Sydney & Jaden outside playing in the leaves ~
Does Miss Charlotte really, truly have 7 teeth in that mouth of hers? Why yes she does - and not a single one popped through with incident - they just suddenly appeared - she is just like Jaden was! She is also on the move when it comes to cruising along any and all furniture - pulling up on things (even things she shouldn't) seems to be a common thing these days ... and with that comes bumps and bruises right? Well she pulled herself up in her crib after napping Saturday and must've fallen and banged her little cheek on the side of the bed because now there is a purpleish bruise on her right cheek - poor baby sobbed like I have never seen! She bounced back fast though and proceeded to bang her mouth a few hours later on a toy! Jeesh ... it is too funny and cute to see her standing up though ... boy this past year has flown right on by without checking to make sure I was okay with that!!! not nice ...
Jaden and Charlotte both got their flu and swine flu vaccinations last week and now Jaden has been hit with a horribly croupy cough - reminds me of nebulizer days! She says she feels fine and she is fever free so I am not worried (yet!) She did take the night off from swimming yesterday but she did go tonight but was pretty tired from the cough medicine - here's hoping she bounces back soon!
Other than that we are gearing up for some Christmas Decorating at the Clark House! Charlotte's very 1st Christmas is right around the bend - quickly followed by her Big 1st Birthday ... it is going to get pretty busy around here. We are celebrating her day on New Year's Eve with a party in the afternoon followed by ringing in the New Year afterwards with friends and family! Jaden is the official party planner/decorator and she is super stoked to pick out all the supplies and a cake too! I am just sad she is almost one already - might just have to have another hmmmm?
Me - well I am trying to find a way to surprise Jason with a weekened getway somewhere warm and cheap (since I am still without a job!) I was hoping to give him a little trip for Christmas but we would take the weekend away right around his birthday in January! If there is anyone out there with some travel ideas please let me know ... we are without a passport so it will have to be within the 50 states ...
Well I hope all my readers I have abandoned are still out there and doing well ... we are chugging along here as happy as can be ...
Love ~ The Clark Family of Four ~ Rebekah, Jason, Jaden and Miss Charlotte

I love that shadow picture of Charolotte! Is she really almost one?? Say it isn't so! These babies grow up way too fast!

So cute! Sorry to hear about Jaden's cough. We've had something similar running through our house the last few weeks. EVERYONE has been hit with it. It landed Ryan and I in the doctors office and now we are both on antibiotics for bronchitis (no fevers here either). Hope everyone else gets by unscathed and that Jaden feels much better very soon!

FYI - I just sent you and email to the address on your blog. Let me know if you don't get it please!! THANKS!

I can't believe how old Charlotte looks...her hair is coming in so nice! What a sweetie!

Missed you on your blog lately but I realize that we are all busy. I still would love to get together again some day soon...
