Birthday and Visit

What a great holiday weekend we had here with the Gustafsons. Andrew and Thomas (and us too!) were sorry to see them go. Here are some photos of the fun. We also put up a Christmas tree on Friday (our first!) and finally got those ornaments that we have been given over the years out of storage.












I had a really nice birthday today, with lots of great cards and calls from family. Thomas and Steve made a special video for me which I am sharing here.

Happy Thanksgiving



We had a really nice Thanksgiving with Steve's parents! Thomas and Andrew are enjoying the extra attention and playtime.

Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday!

Playing around

The cool nights are here and so are the footy pajamas!












Thomas likes playing with the Candyland game Steve received for his birthday, which mostly involves posing the characters around the board and rearranging them in their box. He announced that these players were 'holding hands.'

Moose Hat

Thomas started his gym class yesterday, where they also do some singing and crafts. Yesterday's craft was moose antlers made from his handprints. He is modelling them reluctantly in this photo!

My schoolwork has been keeping us all busy as I prepare a report on the properties of a R22 chiller to be mailed on Tuesday. Sound like fun? Steve has been working hard keeping the boys occupied in the meantime, while trying to get his own work done. My next assignment arrived this week, so there will be no break until Christmas!

Rice Cereal

Andrew got his first taste of rice cereal this weekend. There is also a video of the action and his lukewarm response!

Also a video of Thomas counting to ten, although for some reason he skips a few at the beginning. He can count up to sixteen, but only when the camera is not running (of course!)

Halloween

We had a great Halloween, with a moms club party in the morning and trick or treating down our block in the afternoon. Thomas had fun going door to door, but wanted to go inside all the houses!
