Buddy says hasta la vista to crawling.
Walking has been his new game for the past couple weeks.
I could watch his little toddling body zoom around the house all day.
What a doll. A fuzzy, red-haired doll.
We play house.
Avy has a camp director bossy streak in her which I have NO IDEA where she got that from.
Linc always wants to play with her.
She will oblige when it can be on her terms.
We dress up & down a million times a day & are not bashful
about our multiple personalities.
Don't believe me?
(she asked for my hot glue gun to affix her whiskars.
We settled on frosting them to her face instead)
Hula Girl with her first real piece of art.
I give you:
"Snail on Grass"
Not sure what this get-up is, but it's definitely camera-worthy:
Feeling very homesick, I moped around all week in a daze begging my siblings to hang out with us.
Not really, but kind of.
For the first time in 10 years, I REALLY felt homesick!
I wanted to be with our big families so bad the week of Thanksgiving.
So...thoughtful Austy showed up & surprised us with a meal fit for a king.
It was great.
The only job he made me do was put out the salad dressing.
The Thanksgiving Miracle Man right here:
We seek out the Perfect Christmas Tree.
This is a girl on a mission.
Whit clearly didn't get enough sleep thanks to Black Friday.
Don't mess with her.
I commemorated our adventure appropriately with my
Moose Wildlife Tee.
& Tat in his Lumber Jack Joe shirt (under his coat).
It's a tradition.
A close up:
You know Tat's in his element right here, no?
Twine, tree sap, big vehicle.
What more could he need?
First we un-decorate this:
& turn it into this:
The Christmas Village:
My adorable advent that my sister-in-law MADE for me a few years ago.
I love this thing. It's adorable.
The final Tree pic:
We eat pie.
Lots of it.
I have honestly lost count on how many pumpkin pies we've put down over here in the past month.
But let's be honest.
I'm not entirely sure if it's the pie or the freshly whipped cream I'm after.
I dare say the two are a more perfect combination than
cookies & milk
