Two Thanksgivings, a Christmas Tree and a Visit with Santa

 Hannah and Noah having a pre-Thanksgiving lunch (on Tuesday) of McDonald's.  She made her dad proud, holding her own cheeseburger :)

 On our way to Thanksgiving dinner at my mom's house on Wednesday:

Thanksgiving at my mom's house:

Thanksgiving at Seth and Julie's on Thursday:

Playing with Uncle Sethie's iPads.  (Of course we all now want one (or two!!))

Elevator ride to go see Santa:

Family picture while we're waiting for Santa (Hannah's looking at him!!)

Lunch afterwards:

I started putting up the Christmas decor last weekend with the tree and lights.  Yesterday I got more of the decorations out.  Tonight Justin and I will hang most of the ornaments and pick out some for the kids to hang tomorrow.
The kids' nativity scene, under the tree (on the Christmas Tree skirt that my Granny made)

The tree, before the garland and ornaments

Today, to kill time, we took the kids to Toys-R-Us.  Hannah, of course, loved all things Mickey Mouse.  Noah checked out all the Imaginex toys, particularly the Toy Story and Batman ones.

And they both had a blast with the train table.  (We have a similar train set at home, of course they won't play with it there!)

Halloween (Even though it's almost Thanksgiving!)

I am so late posting Halloween pictures, so late that I just deleted what I wrote because I had written Thanksgiving pictures!  Some of these are from before and after Halloween.

Here's little miss, at her 18 month check-up, waiting for the doctor:

Here's from when I took my duo to the Cherry Creek mall to play: Noah was too fast to get a picture of!

Here's my little Buzz Lightyear, before we went to the Erie Trunk-or-Treat. He's shooting his "laser"


This is why there aren't many pictures of Noah- he covers his eyes if he knows you're going to take a picture!

Little Miss- she gets her relaxation gene from her daddy.

So does this one!

This was a week before Halloween- she loves those pumpkin buckets!

"Can we Trick or Treat now?!"

My mom saved ALL of our toys.  This is the baby doll crib that I had as a little girl.  I recently got it out for Hannah and we've been playing "babies."  Here she is covering up her baby:

Kissing her baby-doll:

And now, trying to get in the baby doll crib:  (looks like she's stretching for ballet!)

Our pumpkins (the one on the right is from my kindergarteners!)

Buzz, looking through his loot from Grandma Kathy:

Getting dinner at McDonald's, in between trick-or-treating:


Playing last night in the basement.  Noah is playing with my old Little People.  Hannah is getting ready to turn the t.v. on!
