Santa Claus is Coming to Town

Santa Claus came to the Auburn Birthing Center yesterday. I took the kiddos and they both did amazing! TJ really wanted to talk with Santa but then clammed up as soon as he climbed up on his lap.
TJ's shirt says, "Dear Santa, my sister did it!"
The woman responsible for my children!

Laundry Basket

Who needs expensive toys when your Mommy has laundry baskets?!

Turkey Day!

I know that Thanksgiving was last month, but I just got around to uploading the pictures. It was the first Thanksgiving where I prepared ALL the food.....stupid me forgot to take a picture of our beautiful apricot glazed turkey breast, mashed potatoes, stuffing, green beans, herbed bread and pumpkin cheesecake. I did get some shots of the kids though!
TJ spent the Wednesday night before Thanksgiving at my mom's. They made a hand turkey and a balloon turkey.
Then Ella got a hold of one of the balloons.
This was taken one random Saturday before church. She doesn't seem all that happy to be wearing her new, and super cute, pink dress.

Sibling Rivalry

I know that one day, my kids will hate each other. It happens. But for now, I am trying to enjoy the fact that they love each other. Ella will make a screech and wait for TJ's replied screech. She then will crawl to where he squealed from. It is like her own version of echolocation. TJ loves on Ella all the time. I have to remind myself that as long as he isn't hurting her, it is ok. Here are some recent shots of all the sibling love at our house.
TJ is always smooshing all over Ella. She doesn't seem to mind.
Don't they look suspicious?!
What are those things in your mouth and how do I get some?!
He was playing behind her exersaucer.
The he fell asleep behind the exersaucer.
