November Happenings











I am SO behind on posting, and I didn't take very many pictures during the month of November, not even at Thanksgiving! These few pics are from Thanksgiving at my aunt and uncle's house. The Bean loves playing with her cousin Shyla, and this year we have a new little cousin, Annie. She was the sweetest little baby, and I never heard a peep out of her! The kids had fun playing in my aunt and uncle's big back yard, and Shyla keeps some toys there, so the girls played dress up too. Of course the food was delish...I am not very strict about what the kids eat at such family gatherings, as there are always desserts and snacks within their reach. And other family members willing to give them what they want anyway...right, Mom?? :) It's a losing battle. But I think Bubs had about 4 brownies on Thanksgiving and not much more. Oh well!
Also, on the big news front for November, we found out we are expecting our third child! We didn't tell our kids until right before Christmas so that I could get in one more doctor's appt to make sure we heard the heartbeat and everything looked ok. The heartbeat was 162, and the doc said he felt like everything was going well! I am almost 11 1/2 weeks today. I'm thinking girl, but we'll find out in a couple of months. We are thrilled! And the Bean could not be more excited! She is somewhat of a reserved gal, not usually wanting to talk to unfamiliar people, but she told all of our neighbors when we were passing out Christmas gifts.
The Bean also had her K4 Thanksgiving party, but I only brought my phone...anybody know how to download photos from a Samsung Fascinate smartphone? I will update this post if I can figure it out. They made cute little Indian shirts and necklaces and hats.
Hope you all had a Happy November!

Amanda! Congrats! I told Mitch that I was sure your Christmas card would have a pic of your kids donning a "Big Brother" "Big Sister" shirt! I thought we would hear of a new baby skinner sometime soon. Can't wait to hear what you guys are having.

Hi neighboor! This is Donna- I met you at McDonald's playground once. I knew your name was familiar and today I remembered why- I am friends with Carrie Russell, Amy Cook, Peggy H., etc. and had seen your blog link on their blogs. Anyway- congrats on baby 3- we are expecting baby 4 in July! We should go walking sometime! Take Care!
