November Compilation

In an effort to speed through some posts, I'm gonna steal Rebecca's idea and do months at a time when possible!

So here's the rest of November...

Sea Shells by the Sea Shore

We took one Nani day and went to the beach to collect sea shells. The kids weren't as into it as we thought they would be, but we still have fun. Auntie Suz and Katelyn were able to join us too, which made it even more fun!

Love these two!

We hadn't planned on getting wet, but Austin had other ideas! Actually he was trying to look at the water and couldn't back up quick enough when a wave came at him and tripped. His sweats was like a sponge!!

My Drama Queen

Right around 18 months McKenna turned from a sweet angel to discovering tantrums. They were so ridiculous that I had to record one. You know, for prosperity sake. I love the throwing the toy up in the air and whacking herself in the head. And the screams are to see what kind of reaction she'll get but I think she scares herself with them.

Visit with the Great Grandparents

Suz and I took the kids for a visit with Grandma & Grandpa Wiley.

How cute is this kid??

Much to Austin's delight, Grandpa took him for a ride on his walker

Thanksgiving, part 1 - Grandma's House

We spent Thanksgiving Day with Grandma Judy this year. We had an incredible amount of food for the 5 of us! Yummy too!

My first attempts at Pumpkin Pie & Apple Pie. They came out awesome, if I do say so myself!

Thanksgiving, part 2 - Anza Borrego

The day after Thanksgiving we got an early start and met the rest of the family out in Anza Borrego. We always have a great time out there! The kids had fun "dig dig digging" and playing cars together. Being pregnant, I had to stay behind on from the 4 wheeling part, but the kids had a blast with daddy!

Despite having a garage-ful of stuff still to put away from the move and a significant "to do" list for Bella's arrival, I'm also sorely aware that I'm very behind on blogging. A full 6 months behind to be exact. I want to be able to blog Bella's life and I hate skipping things, so I'm going to at least attempt to get (somewhat) caught up before she makes her appearance! I've been wanting to post this video for a while but couldn't get it to upload! This is McKenna's early attempts at hopping. I think it looks more like a epileptic fit than hopping! Gotta love her determination though!
