Nov 22: Thanksgiving with S&S

Nov 25: Heather’s bday

Nov 26: I saw a shooting star tonight while taking bills to the mailbox

Evie got invited to Eric's preschool for their thanksgiving day feast. Here she is helping to pull apart bread to make the stuffing. She seems to be helping eat it as well, lol!

She loves school and can't wait to attend! Look at how diligently she is working!

Eric and Jacob work on their hats with the other students.

Evie makes fast friends and they all work on a project together.

Evie and Jacob play together until the thanksgiving feast is ready.

The feast is ready!

Eric is concerned he might have to eat something other than peanut butter and honey sandwich. He decides a dinner roll is a good substitute, but refuses to try any of the other foods. Look at the cute turkey art he made!

Evie just wants to eat cookies.

Gran and Papa Steve have a park near their house. The kids love the slide and want Papa Steve to join them.

Papa Steve is totally cool!!!

After the playground, its time for a drum lesson!

And some good old fashion dancing!

I am thankful for:  i love that evie gets in bed with me in the middle of the night and cuddles with me until she falls asleep. i love that eric loves super heroes right now and that he and scott will watch countless episodes of batman and have excellent father-son time. i love that eric has to stop playing periodically just to come and give me a hug and kiss, and then go back to what he was doing. i love that at just 2 years old evie is a strong woman who tells it like it is and doesn't back down from fear, aggression, or predetermined precedents. i love dressing her up and i love that she loves dresses. i love that when i put my clothes on in the morning that she comes and tells me that she loves my pretty new shirt (even tho i've had it before she was born, lol). i love my house and that i got to customize it, i love my beautiful vaulted ceilings and that my washer and dryer are inside the house. i love my car, its not a mini van (which i never wanted) and its not a gas guzzling SUV that i have to get a ladder to climb into it with. i'm so glad i live in california, when i think about all the jobs that scott applied for and that i could be living in washington DC or colorado, i shudder a little bit, lol. i am so lucky! life is gooooood!

Evie is thankful for the harvest, lol! She is picking the ornamental plums off the tree.

Eric is thankful for super heroes!!!

Thank you for all the mail, the kids get such a kick out of helping open up the mailbox and finding they have received cards!

Here is the school work Eric brought home.

Nov 18: Scott and Eric are playing doctor and patient. Scott uses the stethoscope on Eric and says, “I can hear your heart beat.” Eric says its his turn, he takes the stethoscope and puts it on Scott’s heart. Scott says, “Can you hear my heart beating?” Eric says yes. Scott asks, “What does it sounds like?” Eric says, “It says, Daddy, I love you.”

Rail Fair inspired the boys to get out the Christmas train and start putting it together! What fun!

While the boys were at Rail Fair, Evie and I went to the neighbor girl's birthday party.

Eric's school project had homework that involved bringing vegetables to school, this is what they created with them!

Sugar for Dada!

Grandpa Jim's birthday.

Evie loves to go for rides in the car!

The kids won't eat the food, but they love the toys, lol!

We are working on his speech therapy homework together.

Quality time with Dada.

Yup, that's my girl! LOL!

Sugar for Brother!

Nov 8: Last week Eric looked out into the backyard and then up towards the sky and said, “It’s going to rain.” About 10 minutes later it was raining. Today, Evie and I were getting into the car to go pick up Eric from school and she looked up at the clouds in the sky an said, “It’s wet Moma, its really wet.” About 10 minutes later it was pouring down rain. I see much meteorology in our future, lol!

Mom with Mook

If Evie were a doll, she'd be the cutest one in the toy store, and only cost $24.99 apparently, lol!

Evie says, "i love fée!!!" She looks like Little Fée Riding Hood to me!

She LOVES to take baths! She'd take 100 a day if she could!

Steve on drums and Bill on harmonica as guests of band Lincoln Highway performing at the Santa Paws Benefit Concert at the Auburn Autohaus on November 10 for the Auburn Area Animal Rescue Foundation (AAARF).

The kids had a blast watching their grandpas make music!

You can enjoy the music too on Bill's YouTube Channel HERE!

Not only did the kids have fun watching the music, but there was a rock climbing wall, a bouncy house, vendors, and animals to pet!

The next big adventure was a boys outing to Rail Fair!

They even had trains Eric was allowed to touch!

There are so many amazing things at Rail Fair! Papa Steve knows all about them, and he knows most everyone at Rail Fair, he used to be a train dispatcher! The vendors call Papa Steve "Breezy" and they give Eric lots of free train toys!

There's even a giant train for riding, Eric can't resist!!!
