The kids have been going to gymnastics for a while now and I almost never get a chance to take pictures of their progress!!! Since Becky was here today, I sat upstairs and tried to capture some fun moments... only problem though is that I am taking a picture through a window so they didn't turn out great.... oh well, better than nothing!

You'd think after having 3 kids that I would remember at which age certain events happen...however, I cannot! I couldn't remember when they started to look at toys but figured it was coming soon since he'll be 2 months next week.
And he kept waiting for Mr. Moose to talk back and smile back but it never happened!!! : )
He also found the elephant and reached for it!!!! I couldn't believe it!!!! At first I thought it was a fluke but it did it over and over again!!!! Wow, he is getting SO big!!!! I'm so glad that he has found his friends on his car seat because maybe now that will make car trips a bit more enjoyable for him!!!

I normally carry Ethan around in my Moby wrap! He loves it and I love it! It helps distribute the weight to both of my shoulders so my back doesn't start to hurt.... this is much needed since he weighs close to 14 pounds if not more!!! The down side with the Moby is it is BIG so it isn't as easy to just throw in the diaper bag and it takes a minute to wrap me up which I normally try to do in my garage before I leave the house. Today, I wasn't as prepared but thankfully I had my pocket sling in my bag for easy slinging!

About a month ago, Brad got word that he would have to go to Saudi Arabia over Thanksgiving and be gone about 10 days. That was his first major trip on the schedule after Ethan's birth and I was nervous...silly me should have know better.... I should have known his work would have filled up the rest of his schedule before this Saudi trip so I would have lots or practice caring for 3 kids by myself. However, at the time, I was SO nervous and quickly got on the phone to find backup! First, I asked Nina to help but then, her and I thought it would be a great idea to ask my sister! I've been wanting her to come visit us in Arkansas and this was the prefect opportunity!
help time with her, booked her the first flight out on Friday morning (and the first flight out on Thursday morning so she would make it home in time to work). That meant that she worked until 3am on Friday morning, took a cab to the airport, checked in at 6 am, flew ALL morning, and then got to my house about 1 and jumped right in with the kids. Silly girl thought she could nap as soon as she got to my house! The kids napped the whole way to and from the airport so when they woke up and say Teetee in the car, they were ready to play!!!! No rest for the weary!!! Let me say, she was SUCH a trooper to agree to the flight schedule!!! Thanks Sis for maximizing your time here!

Well I did it, I went on my first every Black Friday shopping trip! I can't believe I did it! I wanted to see what all of the hype was about. This year, some stores were opening on Thursday evening so I decided to take advantage of it. Aric came over to stay at my house after I put the kids to bed so I could run to Toys R Us to take advantage of some sales. The store was opening at 9. Silly me thought that not many people would be there so I didn't hurry to go get in line. I showed up at 8:30 and the line was all the way to Pier One.... see how far back I was!

After round 1 of Thanksgiving dinner and before round 2, we went for a walk in the park across the street from my mom's house. It was such a pretty afternoon and felt so good to be outside! While we were walking we noticed a lot of walnuts on the ground!!! Owen wanted to know what was inside ALL of these round nuts so we thought we'd find out!
