Very thankful!

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!

Hung with care

So proud of myself - made our new stockings! The bottoms are all a lightweight natural color canvas with different patterned cuffs plus first initial! They were pretty easy to make so in a few years if I'm feeling like new ones, no big deal!

Pretty funny but D and M seem like dad and mom but it's just our first perfect ;)

It's beginning to look a lot like christmas....

Riley's board book

My mom made a jack book when he was young with pics of the family so I made Riley one. Same blank board book as the ABC one I made them but designed it with pics of her with family members, printed, laminated, placed them on the pages and BOOM! Turned out so cute!

Riley turns 8 month old!

8 months! It's going fast!!! She drinks her own bottles, loves the sippy cup, eats pretty much anything that can be cut into small pieces (from pancakes to meatballs), crawls everywhere, and will walk perfectly as she holds your fingers! Still a ways to go on that (doesn't pull herself up yet but once she does, look out!)

My new favorite jack phrases

As Riley crawls "here comes Riley!"
When he gets up in the morning "I wake up!
"I help, messy!"
When he want to take a truck "I bring to school"
He calls his teachers by their names - in fact he sometimes calls us by our names haha!
When Riley isn't there "where's sister?"
After jack eats his vitamins "daddy vitamins"...good reminder
"Santa, reindeer, presents!"
When he shares his toys with Riley "here you go" (on repeat till she grabs it)
To the dog "come here Parker" as he taps his legs
"no big deal"
As he leans over then runs "marks, set, go!"
As he turns the volume down on the iPad "that's loud!!" haha!

Just a few that come to mind. He is just so chatty all the time - tells you what hurts, if it's bedtime, when he's hungry, what book he wants to much fun!! Love it!

Random pics

I just can't help it! I'm obsessed with how cute these kids are plus now that they can play together!

Halloween 2012

We had an owl and policeman this year! But actual trick or treat was a bummer...rain and cold. So we improvised and had jack knock on doors in the house to get treats... He loved it!!!! Then the kids painted pumpkins and once they went to bed we carved ours. Ended up being a fun night :)
