Quick Update. . .
















Here is just a quick little update since. . .well. . .almost a month ago. Mike's putting the kids up for bed and I just have a minute.
So. . .
Grace has started asking questions: What's that called and Why? She also walks around and says "Happy Kwanzaa!" (She and Obie just got a Barney DVD that talks about different celebrations, we will soon start working on Marry Christmas) She got her first hair cut and is very proud of herself. No screaming. We stumbled across Santa Wednesday and has a successful visit. No Screaming. She even sat on his lap which is a huge improvement from last year.

Obie has started taking a few steps at a time now. Crawling is still fast so he usually chooses that mode of transportion. He loves cars and pushes them all over the house making motor sounds. He knows where his belly is and loves to pat it. He is getting his two top teeth and refuses anything mushy. Obie also got a hair cut. He did pretty well. He was a wiggle worm but there was no screaming which everyone appreciated.

We had two couples over for Thanksgiving and I cooked up a storm. It was my first time ever to officially make a Thanksgiving meal. Everything turned out pretty good. My cheapo aluminum pan had a hole in it and just dripped everywhere in the oven and we were almost smoked out of the house. No one was here yet so it wasn't too bad. . .I guess it wouldn't be Thanksgiving without something happening. I even made an apple pie from scratch. . .except the crust. . .it actually turned out pretty yummy.

Mikes on the end of his class so that's not fun. We are off to California in two weeks for Christmas. We haven't been back since 2004. Since then our family has doubled in size. Wierd. We can't wait. OK. That's all for now. Its time to rest. Oh and just so you all know I didn't go shopping in the wee hours of this morning. . .
