Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We were excited to have our first Thanksgiving dinner in our house and were joined by both our parents and my brother and his family.

It's been really nice having the week off, although the time has gone very quickly! Here are some pictures from the week:

Our little turkey wouldn't take a nap after dinner, but he finally crashed after daddy and I both danced with him NUMEROUS times to "Jingle Bells" (the Bing Crosby version, of course!):
Neither Justin or I thought of taking pictures of the meal until after the fact. Hopefully we can get some of those pictures from Grandpa Tom!

In other news, Noah has smoothly transitioned to his big-boy bed. Here's a picture of our little turkey taking his first nap in it:

Christmas Pictures

We had Noah's pictures taken today with his two favorite girls, Mary and Ellie. It was a rough time of day, we learned that 6:00 is too late to get great pictures of Noah without a struggle. But the girls did great and Ellie had some of the best smiles I've seen from her. . . missing front tooth and all! (I guess we know what she'll be asking Santa for this year!)

Here are pictures of the three amigos:

A couple more the girls:

A Sad Day for Mommy and J's Halloween Video

'Tis a sad day for me: my baby boy got his first hair cut today. :(
He fell asleep on the way into Boulder and was quite hesitate at first. But, he got to sit on Daddy's lap during the process, played with Daddy's phone (which he NEVER gets to do) and got a lollipop in the end. He looks so much older now!

A side view of the finished haircut:
A front view. He isn't feeling very well today, both he and I are getting sick. Not a good time, I have a concert on Wednesday and I have to be at school these next three days because the kids aren't quite ready for it. But, only three weeks until Thanksgiving Break!
Here's the Halloween Video that Justin made that I promised in yesterday's blog.. He's quite proud of it:
