Christmas...just around the corner.

Well hello there.

Today I realized that my baby is 23 months old. ALMOST a 2 year old. Wow, where has the time gone? I have found myself getting caught up by the season, ( see last year's post) already. I am going to try to slow down a little this year and enjoy a few new things. As I have told some of you, I LOVE the hustle and bussel that goes along with this time of year, so I need to reset. We'll see how it goes....
I also work a stretch of 4 night shifts over Christmas weekend, so I am thinking that I would like to make the most of our Thanksgiving holiday family time.

We are going to take Gabbie to the Annual Nutcracker Ballet. It will be her first time and I am looking forward to that. I will probably spare Jason and invite the Grandmas.

I am feeling pretty darn BLESSED this year!

I know this picture is tiny, but most EVERYONE in America can identify this spot. I hope to take my children there someday! Isn't it beautiful?!?!?!

Ahhhh, doesn't that look cozy?

Oooohhhh, I DARE you to try this. Jas doesn't know yet, but this is what I have in mind for our tree. :)

The Adventures of Finley

Finley seems to have turned into a big girl over the last few months. She copies EVERYTHING her sister does and says, yet she has a very different personality from Gabbie. I am already anxious to start her in some activities. Maybe gymnastics or swimming? We'll see.
Finley provides constant entertainment for us. Whether we are giggling about the cute thing she said or I am laughing to hide the frustration from one of her is all worth it.

Finley enjoyed some family time while carving pumpkins!

Well, she sort of enjoyed it. If she had it her way, she would have had the the knife in her own hands.

We went to the Cobbler vs Raider football game on a chilly evening Finley did not seem to mind the cold and the Cobblers WON!

The pumpkin patch was fun for Fin this year, too. It was a beautiful day and she got to hang out with Brayden. He has become such a nice young man and Finley enjoyed his company.

Pumpkin Patch 2009

Finley's new friend, Y. Most of you have heard me talk/blog about this family.
They have settled in nicely and we are enjoying getting to know this special little girl.
