I am really blessed and thankful for our family and the friends we've chosen as family, our health, our happiness, our home, and our faith.

Thank you to The Harvey's and The Perry's for hosting and inviting us over.

I really slacked on photos this Thanksgiving but here are a few from our day:

School Days-November

The month of November was packed with fun at school!  In addition to the normal activities Emily's class led Chapel one week, Emily celebrated her birthday, they had a Thanksgiving Feast, and Emily was Ladybug of the Week this last week.
Emily learned about the letters G and H, the color brown, the shape triangle, and opposites in math.

Emily's class hosted Chapel at the beginning of this month.  It was super cute.  They lead the school in song and prayer.  

Here are a few clips of the songs:

Emily got to celebrate her birthday at school.  The class sings to her, she got to pass out cupcakes to her friends, and wear a birthday crown.

North Pole Breakfast 2014

Jingle returned from the North Pole this morning and hosted a North Pole Breakfast.  He brought Emily and Madi gifts, Emily's Christmas books, her Santa cup and candy cane silverware. Rudolph brought Jingle last night and he brought reindeer antlers and bells from Santa's sleigh for the girls.

Waking up to see the surprise from Jingle.

I made green Christmas Tree pancakes this morning but when they cook they turn brown, lol.

Looks like Christmas is going to be lots of fun this year with Madi.  She pulled the tissue and bag immediately.  It was so cute.

She even wanted to help sissy.

"Dear Santa, my sister did it!"

Jingle brought Madi pj's to keep her warm because the North Pole is very cold and an elf shirt so she could be an elf just like Jingle.

Jingle brought Emily pj's and the elf shirt as well along with lots of other Christmas shirts.

Check out our North Pole Breakfasts from other years:

Madi 6 Months

Little Peanut was 6 months old yesterday.  How can it be her half birthday already?!?!  We don't see the doctor for a couple weeks so I don't know her measurements.  She's still wearing 3-6 months but already moving into 6-9 month pj's.  She wears size 2 diapers but really should be in size 3.  Why o why did I buy a half a dozen boxes of size 2 diapers when she was born? Oh ya, they were on sale.
Just over the weekend we started a new schedule.  She eats at 7 am, 11 am, 3 pm, and 7 pm.  We're still working out naps but so far it's been from 9-11 am, 1-3 pm, and 5-6:30ish.  She goes down about 7:30 or 8 pm.  I'm already loving not feeding her at 9 pm.  So sad but now I get to go to bed even earlier.
We've gone backwards with the crib and I kind of gave up for the time being.  Sooooo, she's still in the rock n play.  She'll be two and I'll be cramming her into the rock n play.  
She's still teething like crazy but no new teeth that I can see or feel.
On November 5th Madi started rolling from her back to tummy.  Now she rolls from one end of the room to the other.  She's also scooting backwards so she gets around pretty well.  She planks and gets up on all fours constantly.  I suspect crawling is right around the corner.
She started "stranging" people which I'm so not used to because Emily loved everyone.  I hope it doesn't last long.
Unfortunately, she's still a handful because she always wants to be held.  Between her tummy problems and teething we've heard lots of crying around here.  Crossing my fingers she grows out of this soon.
She still has an infectious smile, loves to talk, blow raspberries, and laugh.
Happy Half Birthday Little Peanut!

Mommy Monday-Welcome Baby Giada

This Mommy Monday is about becoming a mommy!
Last Thursday my best friends, Gina and Anthony welcomed their baby girl, Giada Marie.  She was 5 lbs, 2 oz, 18 1/2 inches long,  and born at 2:09 pm on 11/13/14.  She is such a little peanut and such a cutie with a precious face.  Gina's labor went really well and mommy and baby are doing great.  Yesterday I took over dinner and got to hold the little love again.  I could hold her all day.

Becoming a mommy is one of life's greatest gifts.  I'm so excited for Gina and this new chapter of her life.  She is going to be an outstanding mama and I can't wait to share this with her and for our girls to grow up together.

Gina looks fabulous!

The proud papa!
