Thanksgiving Weekend

It was kind of an uneventful weekend for us but we got lots of family time in. We usually go to Mike's parents house for Thanksgiving (except for last year) but this year it just worked out a little better for everyone to come to us. My parents stayed in California this year and Mike's parents and his grandpa came over for the day. They left around 3:30 and it was really weird for us to have our house without additional family members on the evening of a holiday! It was our first year cooking a Turkey and Mike's mom and I each made a few sides and it all turned out really well! We were all stuffed! Even though Sawyer only ate a dinner roll I think he enjoyed the day, too. Blair ate a bit of everything - it makes me happy that at least one of my kids eats real food!

The day before Sawyer made some place cards and they turned out insanely cute:

 Excuse the mess in the background - the kids got some new jammies and they love playing with the hangers (I also got some more baskets on Black Friday to help with the mess back there!)
Blair is wearing the outfit Sawyer wore on his first Thanksgiving :)

They each got Santa jammies, Sawyer refused to take his off

Turkey coma + Football

Late lunch on Friday - Sawyer is in the holiday spirit!
 Saturday was our State football rivalry game and the kids were in their OSU gear - poor Beavers :(

Today we were going a bit stir crazy so even though it was only 36 degrees we decided to go to the park - how cute are these bundled up monkeys?

After the park we went to 5 guys for lunch, but not before getting a Panera PBJ for Sawyer (only this kid)

Blair tried her best to figure out how to play Hungry Hippos

I love this family of mine!

Things I Want to Remember - November 2014

I probably forget 80% of the stuff I want to remember so I need to keep writing these things down. My kids are precious and I know when they are grown up I will not remember any of this stuff unless it's here on my blog (hopefully this still exists somehow?)

  • Sawyer putting pointing his wrists at me over and over saying "mommy, why when I go like this spiderwebs don't come out?" Well, because you aren't spiderman. "ok." 
  • Blair running to Mike and saying "DADA!" when he gets home each night
  • Blair running in general
  • Sawyer singing his school songs and then acting shy when he sees me watching
  • When they play together nicely
  • Blair getting mad and yelling at me at Target when I thought she wanted the pink sparkly purse rather than the silver purse with a bow
  • Blair ripping the bow out of her hair and trying to put it in my hair
  • Sawyer telling me I'm his favorite girl (I hope that lasts forever ;) )
  • Sawyer telling me he likes chocolate pooding (pudding) and that his friend likes bornilla and chocolate pooding
  • Sawyer said the other day "Mommy, I like my long hair and I know you like my long hair. But I don't want it too long like a princess down to my FEET!" Point taken. He got a haircut.
Blair also had her 1 year check up today finally (oops). She is in the 86th% for weight and 40th% for height! Poor little shorty! But she is right on track with her development and the cutest and smartest in my opinion!

hair cut day
I sadly drew this turkey for Sawyer to color - turned out very cute and we will put it on the door for Thanksgiving so the grandparents know where to stop ;)

School Thanksgiving program - pretty much the cutest thing of all time

Little Hike with Little Bundles

We were feeling a bit cooped up today so after Blair woke up from her nap (she took a 3 hour nap today - kind of awesome) we went for a short hike not too far from our house. I was excited to bundle them up in warm jackets and hats, and the biggest thrill was that Blair fits in Sawyer's old down jacket (and he still fits in the one we got him 2 years ago!). She rocks the blue, doesn't she?

She really wanted to walk rather than be held. We let her, and it was kind of funny, she was stumbling and sometimes would catch herself before falling, sometimes we would catch her, sometimes she had to put her hands down. Welcome to hiking life Blair!

The leader

I love this pirate face he makes, and Mike has started suggesting I get a new car (I don't want to) so I am happy to include this picture for a memory in case I do get a new car soon :) 

For some reason we brought a goose call (I don't really want to know why) and Sawyer had to give it a try
