January 2015 and Penny's 1st Birthday pics

January was spent with Grandma Deb here for three weeks and Papa Joe here for one week. It was great seeing them and the kids enjoyed getting spoiled. It was also spent preparing for Penny's first birthday! Her first year seemed to fly by (though I think I say that with all of my kids at each of their birthdays haha).

As usual, there are two groups of pictures, one from our regular camera and the other from my cell phone.

From the camera:
 Drooly, smiley baby

 Pig tails!

 Caught playing with markers (cap was still on)


 Taking picture of everyone playing and Penny decided to flash the camera
