More November

In November we also celebrated Brad's 35th birthday. He got lots of new tools which he was pretty excited about.

We decided to stay home for Thanksgiving this year. It was a nice low key holiday.

Will Turned 2... in November

My little guy is 2. How could anyone love someone else more than I love that child. What I love about Will at 2:
Dimples, dimples, dimples
He's an easy laugh
His smile
That blonde hair
He has an opinion about nearly everything
The way he loves his sissy
How he can turn anything into something to throw
"Mom, you hear me? you hear me Mom? MOM YOU HEAR ME?"
"I have an idea.."
"What are we doing today?"
His love of music and books
The way he runs, twisting his body
The games he plays for attention
His little fits he has when he gets upset
The way he holds his blankie up to his mouth and sucks on his tongue
When he sings at the top of his lungs in a public place
Snuggling with him befor bed

Happy Birthday my sweet angel. I love you with all my heart.

Let's Try Again Continued

More October..
Both kids love playing with shaving cream. Brad is not a fan of this activity. I can't imagine why?

We went to the pumpkin patch...

We made brownies...

We played in the leaves...

We made leaf masks...

We ate a ton of candy...

We carved pumpkins. Alice drew the tiniest little face on the largest pumpkin. Brad did a great job cutting out such a tiny face. Alice was very proud.

We went to the church carnival. Alice was a Bears' cheerleader and Will was a Bears' football player.

Alice had a Halloween Party at school and I made the treats.

Let's Try Again

Blogging is like exercise. If you skip a day, it's hard to get back in the habit. I skipped a few months. Here are a few highlights...
We took a trip to the fire station- A huge hit with both kids.

Alice on her first day of 4 year old preschool. Her last year!

Will on his first day of Mother's Morning Out. He really loves going to see Miss Jill and Miss RaeLyn.

Alice and I went to Every Family Rocks. We saw both Dan Zanes and Justin Roberts in one day(kid rock stars!). Alice had a blast.

We made caramel apples..

The weather in October was pretty nasty. It was cold and rainy almost all month. It even snowed!!
