Thanksgiving with Grandma and Grandpa

 Last week Grandma and Grandpa came to visit for Thanksgiving.

 I got help out in the kitchen.
 "Can I paint the turkey Mama?"
 I also helped Grandma peel the eggs
 and make them into deviled eggs.
 Poor Teah got sick with Croup. (Worst sickness yet.)
 Luckily I was there to help. 
 Oh, and Grandma. She ended up doing most of the cooking cuz Mama was tending to Teah. (Don't worry, whoever was taking the picture was also watching Charlie or we may have had Thanksgiving dinner without a turkey!)
 Grandpa, there's no time for sleeping!
 Check out the bird.
 Poor little punky.
 Grandpa fed us well every morning.
 And Grandma played lots of puzzles and games.
 Here we all are playing my favorite: Candy Land!
 Ta da!
 Teah did manage to get out and go to the park one day.
 Who can ever resist the swings?
 Not us.

 To wrap up the week, we built our very own Gingerbread houses.
 I helped Grandma decorate our own house.

Bet you can't guess which one was mine?

Holy Hair

Swimming in November?

 We filled up our fuzzy jar (Teah and I earn warm fuzzies when we share and are nice to each other....trust me, it's harder than it seems.) So as a reward we chose to go swimming (inside of course)!
 Please excuse the fuzzy pics and red eyes....new camera coming soon!!!

Another Birthday Party

 1 of 2 birthday parties this weekend (sorry no pics of the other one). The best part of the party---a bounce house of course!! Hey, who is that big kid in there?
 Oh, right. That's just Daddy. The only way Teah would go in was if he'd go in too.


 Both of us started gymnastics at the rec center for about six weeks. Teah is in Tumble Tots and I'm in Lil Flippers. I was able to help T a little in her class. Here we are doing push ups.
 Teah walking the balance beam with coach Peter.
 Not sure what we're doing here.
 T's favorite: the "Froggy" trampoline.
 My class was a big girl class where the parents said on the side and watched.
 We ran laps around the gymnasium.
Along with other things. I've been asking when we could go back since we left. Can't wait for next week!


 Our first "real" snow of the season was a couple of weeks ago.
 Both of us were up at 6AM, saw that it was snowing and immediately got gloves and hats on.
 Mommy finally agreed to go out with us around 10 AM.
Gotta love eating icicles off of the car.

We Love Vacations

 About 2 weeks ago Mommy, Teah, and I flew to Indiana to stay with Mimi and Pop Pop. Mommy only stayed a couple days and then went on a trip with Daddy and his family. It was our first time away from Mommy for more than a night. We had a blast. As you can see from this picture, Mimi has lots of dress-up clothes. I like the Snow White dress the best.
 Here we are at Uncle Craig and Aunt Beka's house playing with cousin Addy.
 Mommy and Uncle Craig. (Not sure how happy he'll be that this picture is being posted. :)
 We had so much fun that we didn't even realize Mommy and Daddy were gone. 
 We played at parks,
 ate popcorn,
 played with the kitties,
 spent lots of time with Aunt Beka and Addy,

 (more kitty time)
 teased Pop Pop,
 and let him tease us :)

 Did our hair with Mimi,
 watched movies,
 played puzzles,
 fed ducks,

and even carved pumpkins.

OKay, okay....maybe we missed Mommy a little. :)

Now let's see how Mommy and Daddy's trip to Vegas went...
They got to see The Lion King (which Mommy says was awesome),
 walked around and enjoyed the sites,
 visited the Hoover Dam,
 Silly Daddy
 They went on a helicopter ride over the Vegas strip at night
 Pretty cool...huh?
 Hung out with Uncle Brad (the birthday boy)
 As well as the rest of the Waterman crew

 Enjoyed yummy food
and great people.
