November come and gone

Sorry I’ve been bad about updating you this month.  You see, I’ve procrastinated big time and have spend every night I can finishing a project and therefore neglecting other things, like the blog… or dishes… or folding laundry… Anyway, here is an update of our month.

9 months old (4)

Kinsley is now nine months old and right on the verge of becoming mobile.  She just has to get that other leg out from under her and figure out how to move forward and she’s a goner.  She is really good at eating just about anything that we put on her tray and loves apples and cheese.  She visited the doctor and checks in this month at 21 1/2 pounds and 27 inches long.  She’s a big talker and loves to tell you all about it.  She’s also got a bit of a mischievous side and goes for Myla’s hair when she isn’t paying attention and pull it.  She thinks its so funny and laughs!  Myla is not such a fan.

Speaking of Myla, she has been busy too.  She’s had a couple of fun days in preschool – a feast and a field trip – and continues to bring home lots of interesting facts.  She’s discovered the space under her bed is a great place to hide, or to hide things, and sometimes will dive under there right before you walk in the room – the only indication is the skirt blowing in the breeze.  She’s been fighting a cold for about a week now, but I think she’s finally getting better. 

Other than that, our days have been filled with…

In other words – making memories.

Trick or treat!

pink flamingo 2011 (2)

Myla had the best time with Halloween this year.  She’s been saying all month that she wanted to be a pink flamingo and when she woke up on Halloween, there was no fussing about putting on her costume – finally!  She spent the whole day leaving little pink feathers everywhere she went.  But she loved it.  We hit a few houses for trick-or-treating too.  Every door we went to, she would hold out her bucket but never said trick-or-treat.  And then we would walk away and she would tell me “lets go to another house for trick-or-treats!”  I think her favorite time though was helping to hand out the candy to other kids.  Every time the doorbell would ring she would run to give out candy.

Kinsley got the cutest little witch socks from my mom and so she went as a good witch.  Of which, I have no pictures. (Bad mom!)  But, it was a simple tutu type skirt and of course the socks.  She didn’t really get what was going on, but she liked to watch the pink flamingo go.  I think next year she will have a great time.  Especially if she still thinks Myla is that much fun to watch.

We all enjoyed the warm Halloween and then prepared to hunker down for the latest snow.  And then, we did this…

Is there anything better than warming your feet by the fire after playing in the snow?  Nay, I say.  Man, I missed having a fireplace.
