Happy Thanksgiving!

I asked Hannah what she was going to be thankful for this Thanksgiving and here was her list:

For Tutu
For my family
For my cousins
For Elliot

I'm sure she would have gone on and on, but a bowl of cereal distracted her.

Hope everyone has a great holiday weekend.

Watch What You Say.....

I was giving Eli a bath this afternoon and Hannah was helping me. After I rinsed off his hair (and he did the "I don't like water on my face" dance in his tub), Hannah lovingly patted his hair and goes "It's all right Eli, it sucks, doesn't it?". And I go "Hannah, did you just say "it sucks?". Her response to me was "well, it sucks getting your hair washed in the bath". Hmmmmmm. She has never used this word before....I must use it far more often than I intend. We'll work on it.

Happy Birthday, Mommy

I got a delicious ice cream cake for my birthday. Chocolate cake with fudge icing, peppermint ice cream, and a little whip cream on top. Almost as good as grandma's!

Not the best quality picture, but here I am with my kids on my birthday. Eli was about maxed out on all the fun and was ready to throw his "get me to bed!" tantrum.
On Saturday Grammy watched the kids for the evening while Mickey and I went down to Seattle for dinner at the Wild Ginger and then 3'd row seats to see the comedy of Kathy Griffin at the Paramount. We started watching her show, My Life on the D List, last season and we both really enjoy it. Hilarious show, and a much needed date night. Thanks, honey!

Beautiful November Weekend

We had a beautiful November weekend in our neck of the woods.
What a perfect time to:

Clean up the leaves.

Mow the Lawn.

Pick up the toys.

Get Hannah's baby Diego all ready for Halloween.

And just look too darn cute. Hope you all had a great weekend as well!

Goodbye, Sudden Valley

We have officially closed on our house and thus it is time to say goodbye to Sudden Valley.

Mickey and I bought this house together, our first home, shortly before our wedding. It didn't take long before we added a cat, then a dog, another cat, and eventually two children (and we already had Macy too). With the growth of our family our wonderful house started to feel a little cramped. And Sudden Valley started to feel just a little too remote.

We wanted a fence. Plants the deer would not eat. A driveway and roads that could be navigated in the snow. Street lights. Trick or Treating on Halloween. More of a "neighborhood" feel. A mailbox within walking distance. A less confusing address. A closer proximity to town. Most importantly, we wanted more space.

We are loving our new home. But I have to admit I feel a twinge of sadness every time I think about the one we have left, and now no longer call our own.

Playing around with video...

Here is Hannah, singing a song she learned from watching Madagascar 2 over the weekend.

Just Sitting Around

Since our coffee maker is on the fritz, daddy found the perfect place to stash a baby. But don't worry, mom was close by just in case he decided to lose his newly found balance.

My step-daugter Macy is visiting us this weekend from San Diego. We haven't seen her since July. From the looks of this picture, Eli is pretty fascinated by his sister. Macy lived with us full-time last year, so we have been missing her lots and are thrilled she is able to be here with us this weekend (but it's going by too fast!). Macy has pretty much adjusted to her new school and continues her A grades. We also just found out she was picked to be the editor of the school newspaper!
