The family at Thanksgiving.

The kids enjoying their Thanksgiving Day desserts! COOKIES!!!

The kids and their bowling balls!!

Baylor watching his ball roll down the alley. He got down on his knees every time.

My parents and I (it was their idea) took the kids bowling (for their first time!) the day after Thanksgiving. They (the kids) were a tad nervous at first (as they are most new places and environments) but they warmed up and went with the flow. It was so funny to watch Baylor run up their and get down on his knees to help "push" the ball down the alley each time. He managed to knock some pins down here and there. I also got to leave part way through the second game to do some shopping. It was so nice to take my time and enjoy shopping and my iced coffee (sugar free vanilla - from McDonalds. My weakness!) while the kids bowled and then my parents took them home for lunch and a nap! I found some shoes and odds and ends for the weekend in Chicago (that's this coming should be FUN!!! I can't wait!!! More shopping!!!).

Averie and Baylor "dressing up." Averie said, "I am a princess and Baylor is a ladybug." They dress up quite frequently these days. They are also into stickers and coloring, Little People, Choo-choo's and driving the fire truck and big truck around the house (ride on toys that we brought in for the winter). They are best buddies and I just love to watch them play together! I am so lucky!

Well, Baylor came down with a bug Saturday...we were at Thanksgiving dinner up north and Baylor was acting very needy...he even requested a nap part way through the day!! Saturday and Sunday morning he woke up stinky (never does that) and vomited his juice Sunday am and several times yesterday. He finally has kept some bread and toast down today after getting sick twice this am after breakfast... I just hope it stays away from the rest of us because we are having Thanksgiving dinner here Thursday. It should be interesting... so much to do!

The kids chugged down the hot cocoa the other day, they loved it! They also posed for some cute and silly pictures! Cocoa face and all! We are all getting so excited for the Holidays. It will be so much fun this year! I am already ready to get the decorations and tree up, even though if I do that I will be ready to take it down too we will wait a little bit! We are getting excited for Thanksgiving as well and will be doing our turkey hands this week. It will be very fun and interesting to see their responses! I think the kids will enjoy it. I will definitely have some pictures from that later on this week. We also have a Birthday Party-Thanksgiving Dinner-Border Battle Party on Saturday. Yes it is all of those in one with Daddy's family next Saturday. It should be great! I still have to find out what I am responsible for making, but we are getting very in to the Holidays these days! And there is so much more to come in the next month or two! We can't wait!

Averie was SOOOO excited to be riding on a train! We went with Shawna, Jayde and Jett to a little Halloween train ride. It was very fun and festive. They also had a corn maze, hay ride and other activities that we may do next year! So much fun!!


Here are a few pics of the kids from the Birthday dinner for Grandpa Bill. The kids enjoyed themselves by looking at their silly faces.
