It's Christmas

Merry Christmas!

Thursday, December 20, 2007


Bethany and I went to the doctor last week and got to hear the baby's heartbeat! A perfect 161 beats per minute. The visit made me really excited for May!


Believe it or not, I'm going to finish the putting up the tree posts in one sitting. Bethany was the "light master" in our tree decorating. She was awesome at untangling them, and then holding them up to Daddy to put around the tree. The ornaments didn't go quite as well, mainly because I was paranoid and didn't want her breaking any!

Assembling the Tree

I know there's a lot to be said for a real tree, but I wouldn't have had one this year for $1,000,000. Bethany loved helping us get the branches ready, and then handing them to me to put together. She is getting to be such a good helper.
Look how proud she is of her work!

While spending Thanksgiving in the Smokies, we managed to do some sightseeing. Aren't Bethany's boots the cutest? And with that, I am done posting about Thanksgiving and can move on to Christmas festivities. Yay!

Bethany is a pro at unwrapping presents. And after unwrapping, she takes the time to inspect the gift and have some fun with it. What fun this Christmas season is going to be!

The Browns

We traveled to Tennessee for our Thanksgiving holiday to see the entire Brown family. Bethany is still very attached to her cousin, Maddee! Maddee found her a bead necklace on our first day there, and Bethany had it around her neck the rest of the weekend. I think it was her favorite gift of the week!Bethany caught up with the rest of the family, too, including some Yahtzee time with Great Grandma, and her cousins, Evann and Ailey! She is so into dice. We were thankful for Bethany's good health this visit, and that she got to actually get within 10 feet of Ailey. They make quite a pair. Bethany's cousin, Sarah, got in some good reading time with her... and for some reason didn't make it on any of my pictures.

I realized today what a slacker I've been on this blog! So here's the beginning of slowly bringing you up to speed. A few weeks ago, Bethany got to meet Santa Claus (and Rudolph of course!) She was very into pointing to him. I guess she's not used to seeing grown men walking around in bright red pajamas.

Bethany met Joey for the first time today!! We went over to her great gram's for lunch. The three babies could not be cuter together. They even posed for a nice photo shoot before going crazy again. None of them know how to stop moving!

Let's Go Sabres...

Uncle Mike bought Bethany and Jonas these really cool outfits! Now if only the Sabres would cooperate...

Big Sister

I think it's finally safe to do this post, since most everyone knows. Bethany's going to be a big sister!! She'll lose her baby status in the end of May. Of course, I'm not sure that's technically true, since she'll probably still be in diapers! The Lafferty family has some exciting times ahead!

Not the Doctor!!

Bethany had her 18 month doctor appointment today, and boy did she know where she was! She was crying and screaming before she even hit the scale. Thankfully, she got through it and is good and healthy. Dr. Darlene says she'll probably grow up to be taller than her mommy. She's 33" (the 90th percentile), and 23lbs (only the 30th percentile). What a big girl.

Skull Session

On Friday we all, including "Uncle" Andy, went down to Ohio for an OSU weekend. Bethany got to ride on a bus for 2nd time in her life, and this time we made it into the skull session! Everyone was entertained by her dancing, and she got to meet one of the band members. Daddy and Andy headed to the game, and we went home and watched them win on the computer (G&G don't have cable). Yay! Other events of the weekend: we had a nice, big outing to Applebees with all our friends and got to see Andrew C. for the first time since he's moved back to Columbus. We also got to meet Grandma Faye's new fiance, Richard. Congrats, Grandma and Richard!!!

Here are some fun pictures of (aunt) Mary and Bethany at the zoo. Sure the pictures are a little late...but you'll just have to deal with it.

Dance Away

Bethany is such a good dancer. Check out her moves!


Bethany got to go trick or treating at the mall on Halloween. She is an expert trick or treater! We put her and Jonas in a costume contest, too, and had fun seeing all the creative costumes. Our favorite was the two little girls dressed up as ice cream cones! Bethany had quite the satisfying evening!

Trunk or Treat!

On Sunday Bethany got to go Trick or Treating! Trinity had an event called "Trunk or Treat" where the kids could walk around the parking lot and collect candy from all the cars. Bethany was a natural trick-or-treater. She grabbed as much candy as she could and stashed it in her pumpkin!

Coming to America!

Bethany is very excited because Joey finally comes home today! She won't get to see him because he gets in past her bed time, but soon enough! Welcome home, Joey, can't wait to meet you!!!!

Bethany loves her daddy tons and tons.

Here's a fun video that demonstrates Bethany's new found ability to count, as well as what a wacko she is!

Loving Thursday

We are so happy this week is coming to a close. Today I was a witness in the bank robbers trial, and I am done! No more sitting around in courthouse waiting rooms for hours on end with 2 antsy babies (who were surprisingly well behaved). No more stressing out over subpoenas. No more dealing with Mommy's dumb bank robberies period! My bank robbery baby is a bank robbery baby no longer!

Pumpkin Carving

Bethany experienced something new this past weekend. Pumpkins! After lots of coaxing, I convinced her to help me clean it out. The gook wasn't so bad after all.

This "blogging" thing is taking the world over by storm. So i decided i would see what its all about. This is a cute pic of Bethany taking over Jonas' birthday gift.

Basket Case

I love my little basket case!

Happy Birthday, Jonas!!

Yesterday was Jonas's birthday party! What a cutie he is, and walking just in time to celebrate! Bethany helped him open all his presents. As in, she grabbed everything out of the boxes for him and threw it all over the livingroom. She also showed him how to play with all his new toys. Poor Jonas didn't get too much playing time. Check out the totally awesome Tonka truck we got him. Made with real steel!! And big enough to wheel the cutest toddler ever around! Happy birthday, Jonas. We love you very, very much!

Go Black Bears!

Goodness, it's about time for an update! Last weekend we went down to Coshocton to finally catch one of the triplets' football games. And they won! We were so excited. We spent the rest of the weekend in Coshocton with Grandma and Grandpa and G.G. Faye. We got to go to the Coshocton County Fair, and Bethany loved seeing all the animals. We attempted the carousel again, but did not enjoy that. Ah well.

Queen of the Castle

Just me goofing off on a newly discovered website.

Boob Tube?

Bethany and Jonas are such goofballs when they get on the playground. Jonas will go back and forth in the tube way more times than can possibly be amusing, and Bethany just loves the slide. And Grandma will do anything to keep both of them happy!
