So Riley is still sans hair...ok she has about 2" long hairs but they are thin and blonde so you can't even see it! But of course being on pinterest I can't help myself and made her a quick easy I can't wait to make her more!

Sledding with grandma!

Saturday my mom braved the snow and took jack to the old hill Chris and I used to sled down! They had a great time. Then afterwards went to the north market for Mac n cheese and a big snowman cookie. Fun!

Big girl

The past 2 weeks she's really starting standing, cruising around furniture, getting adventurous by going from table to couch, and walking pushing her walker.

Will she beat jack on walking unassisted at 10.5 months?? she's got 1 more month and my money's on her :)

First snow and sledding of the season!

The first day of winter didn't disappoint - We got some snow! We got up early and hit the hill. Jack loved going down by himself and Riley loved getting pulled around...super fun!

9 months!

Last of the single digits! Every week she is getting a new skill. She's pulling up to a standing position on a lot of things (not all). Points to objects and tells me all about them (of course I have no clue what she is saying). She loves to look in books and tries to grab stuff off the page.

Still loving real food but starting to ween herself off bottles...sometimes she's drinks it all and other times none. But at least we just sit her down with the bottle and don't have to hold her!

She does the cutest thing we call the sprinkler...on her butt she rotates in circles moving her a it!

Mom turns 63

Well last night we took mom to the new casino that opened in Oct. We hadn't been before and I have to say... Well played. It's huge, the art deco decor and atmosphere was great! Drinks were reasonable in price though the table were crazy expensive! So we stuck with the slots. I won 57 on the first slot but nothing really after that.

However the birthday girl won on every machine she sat at! Wade had been before and showed her his favs...and they didn't disappoint!

Had a super fun time and will be back for sure!

Zoolights 2012

My work always has a holiday Zoolights night at the zoo for employees and this year it was a warm night! They also got smart and had Santa in a kidspace and the food at another location bc last year it was packed!

We didn't see many animals since we go a lot but did enjoy Santa, hot chocolate, the aquarium, the lights and dinner. Jack was a dancing fool too...danced up a storm with the Xmas music.

The kids actually did awesome with Santa! I was expecting a crying photo by at least 1, but nope, totally not expected.

Riley skirts!

I love that I started to make Riley skirts...I can make them in fun prints in 15 mins. They are more my style than the fluffy ones and she rocks leggings and jeggins so perfect to put over top!! Love the eclectic look...

Just 1/4 yard of fabric and 15" of elastic... Presto!!

Though the week didn't start that great with Riley having croup and the weekend ending with dad and mom (me and Danny) being sick, thanksgiving was good! Riley ate her first tday dinner and she loved it!

We had it at our house like usual. We had great weather and great food! Lots to be thankful for this year...Riley, family, friends, health, jobs...just a wonderful year!
