I take a LOT of iPhone pictures, huh? Especially this past week---it's been a busy/awesome one.
Blog posts about events of the week to come. Photo dump for now.
Kids at dinner, forget which night:
Christmas parade Saturday 11.17.12 (post to follow). Henry's force choke!
Messing with Henry.
ha ha ha ha.
ha ha ha. Erin's cross face with Truman.
The four of us on our double date.
Crazy post-pony tail girl, Saturday night 11.17.12 at Nate's co-workers house. So overstimulated by the party she was up until almost 9 this night. Yay!
Napping at 8:15am, Sunday morning 11.18.12.
Big eyes on Sunday 11.18.12. Isn't she so freaking pretty??
Tony's 66th birthday dinner at our house, Sunday night. Truman thought the candles were for him, of course.
Monday morning, 11.19: a particularly horrible morning for Truman complete with meltdowns and tantrums at 5 am. Family time at 6 am trying to hold onto some sense of sanity. Cecelia is like, 'What kind of family did I get myself into?!'
Snoozer, Monday at 5pm--couldn't quite put her down even though I knew that nap would mess up bedtime.
Cute girl after a bath Monday night! Looking particularly 'ginger' here.
Tuesday morning at 5 am, ready to start the day! Too excited to fly on her first airplane ride to sleep. Also, mixing patterns to the extreme.
Excited kids while parents pack.
At the airport! Tuesday 11.20.12. Big boy loves the escalators.
Thomas matching cards from the dollar bin at Target = big hit.
Ready to fly! Alternative title: I love wearing my sleepy baby! And I love coffee!
And we are off!
Landed in MO, driving to my parents house 2 hours away. Truman didn't last long.
She's awake (in a borrowed car seat)
But not for long. I was stuck in the back seat with these two peaceful sleeping babes for our drive. Can't beat the view.
Arrived at Go Go and Po Pos house! Baby girl blew out her first diaper all over her outfit to commemorate her first visit out of state.
Memaw cooking and holding CC, general craziness with family begins.
Bath in Go Gos tub, Tuesday night.
Wednesday morning, 11.21.12: Someone popped her first tooth overnight! Celebrating with Memaw.
Love seeing all of my vintage toys from the 80s. Remember this doctor set?
In heaven in his 'new room' at Go Gos.
Lucie dog is impressed, too.
Her new love of standing, Wednesday. Hate that my iPhone blew out her face so much.
Hannah and crew came to visit on Wednsday, too. Lucy and Cecelia, sure to be best of friends from afar.
Wednesday night, playing in Po Pos awesome game room. Also: mom loves her some picture frame galleries just like me.
Thanksgiving morning: my early rising crew.
Turkey day jog with my goatee'd man. Mid-MO hills are no freaking joke, by the way. Still sore from two days of running up a constant incline of concrete.
My old wooden rocking horse, made by Pepaw!
Napping before mom could even get second helpings.
Outtakes from an impromptu photo shoot with my mom as a photographer. Truman was very enthralled with Nate's head, for some reason.
Thursday night: Truman discovers a magnifying glass. Hilarious
Friday morning, 11.23.12: standing again!
Then a sink bath for little miss with TWO TEETH NOW!
Mother/Daughter pedicure time! Much needed. Left the men at home to babysit.
Saturday, 11.24.12: Dunn Bros coffee is seriously the bomb. I wish we had one closer to us in Milwaukee, but alas---every time we come to my parents house we get to experience the DB goodness just minutes away from my parents house. Love their Christmas cups so much!!
What a week so far, huh? We fly back to Wisconsin on Monday---off to enjoy the rest of our trip!
