Here's just a cute shot I got of Kylie...
On Thursday morning, I decided to brave the world again alone with two kids. We met my friend Jacque (another friend from prenatal yoga when I was pregnant with Noah) and her two kids, Elizabeth and Jacob. We went to a grat new find (thanks to my neighbor, Morgan) - Planet Child. It was a perfect little play place and very safe and clean for the kids. We were there for almost 2 hours and then went to Chick-fil-A for lunch afterwards! It was a big morning and we were all ready for a nap afterwards.
Jacque, Jacob and Elizabeth
Noah and Elizabeth - only a few weeks difference in age! - we need to get them together with Eli and see the differences in size. :-)
Friday, I stayed home with thd kids and had some fun outside time in the morning. Noah enjoyed running around and digging in the dirt. Such a boy. When Waylon got home, we all went out to dinner. Kylie is usually fussy in the evenings - usually starting right at dinnertime - so we were wondering how it would go, but it was great. She slept in the carrier most of the time.
Saturday morning was a big one. We decided to check out the Raleigh Christmas Parade so we loaded up and left the house around 9:00. By the time we made it downtown, parked and got to the site, it was 10:00 and the parade started coming by just a few minutes aftewards. Noah had so much fun watching everything although one of us had to hold him up to see the whole time - and the parade was 2 hours long (we just had to stay until the end to see Santa!). I'm still sore from holding him! We had lunch afterwards and didn't start home until 1:00... then NOah slept for 3 1/2 hours!!! We wore him out.
He really loved the big balloons.
Kylie missed most of it! :-)
she was really into it as you can see. :-)
Noah loves to wrestle with Daddy
Yesterday morning, we had a quiet (as quiet as can be anyway) morning at home. We made pancakes for breakfast (Noah had three!), we played for a while and then he helped Daddy out in the garage again. I made mac and cheese for lunch and Noah had three big servings (plus peas and apples!) before a 2 hour nap. Growth spurt??
After nap, we went over to Nana and Grandad's to celebrate Grandaddy's birthday. Lots of playtime and good food - as always! Dinnertime these days is always interesting though - between Noah, Savannah and Kylie (with the evening fussies), it was quite the tag team dinner. Should make Thanksgiving interesting this year!! :-)
In the toy box with Savannah - they act like brother and sister (that's good and bad!). :-)
I love that they are so close and hope they will be for life!

We never did get one with lips on cheek! :-)

This week for Thanksgiving, we are heading to the lake to celebrate. This year, we will enjoy the holiday with both sides of our family! We will have my parents, Leah and Casey, Waylon's parents, Andrea, Sean and Savannah there! We are so excited to have everyone together. Noah is going to be in hog heaven!!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! We sure have a lot to be thankful for!!
