First is the "and stuff" part.
On November first Neil and I got to upgrade our phones. We found out if we went to the Apple store we could get a free iPhone 4. Score! I pretty much didn't take pictures on my camera after that. Then on Christmas eve my camera was dead and I could not find the battery charger. Crap. Anyway...
Syd invented the "underhat"
Nora got carotenaemia and spent the month of November Orange. I kept thinking I just hadn't washed her face good enough after feeding her, silly mom.
Nora started to get the pincer grasp down. But sometimes it is just to hard to pick tiny things up with your even tinier fingers. So you just have to go straight for the table. Nom nom nom
Sydney made a...spider? Out of toothpicks and an apple.
She built a "gingerbread house".
We got to Target one day and found Nora like this in her carseat. Parents of the year here people.
We watched tv with the laundry
We enjoyed amazing weather
We watched some TV
Now for the Thanksgiving part.
We had Thanksgiving lunch at Neil's office.
Rod Stewart came and performed for us.
PSYCH! But doesn't he look JUST like him? And he did sing.
The highlight of the weekend was sweet Grandpa Rocky's fun ride. Wheeee!
Nora looooved Makayla:)
Julie, Dewey, Makayla, Zayne and Micah came from Cali. It was so fun to see them!
The kids enjoying their dinner. Okay, who am I kidding. Of course they just wanted to play. I told them a story to get them to eat a few bites.
Then Micah took his shirt off to show us his "big muscles" haha so cute:) So Zayne took his shirt off. So Sydney took her shirt off. Naked kids running crazy!
Don't you know that pie tastes better with your shirt off?
This cracked me up because it looks like this doll is all "help me, the kids popped my head off and I want to get into the safety of the kitchen, heeeeelp meeeee"
Yum. This was a little creation Rocky came up with. Roll dough cooked on a stick over an open flame in the backyard. Then fill with pudding and whipped cream.
On Saturday we went home and picked up Mom, Dad and Rachel at the airport. They went to Hawaii for Thanksgiving. How do I sign up for that trip next year? We went to Macayo's for dinner and then they got on the road. Nora looks sooooo orange in this photo. And Rachel looks soooooo cute:)
