August Tries Some Avocado!

Here is a cute video of August trying solid food for the first time! Not so sure he liked it :) I've only given it to him one other time since then, but eventually we'll get started!

Teagan's 1st Preschool Christmas Program

Teagan has had such a great time at Preschool.  At Christmas time, they have a little class party and a Christmas program for us to watch.  I am Teagan's classroom mom, so I got to set up the party for was SO CUTE to see them all interact with each other! I was glad to see that, at least while I was observing, Teagan listening really well. Here are a few pictures from her class party and some video of the cutest little Christmas program:

We made reindeer cookies for her class!

It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas!

I absolutely LOVE Christmas time.  It has been more fun each year with Teagan and this year is August's first Christmas!! This is the first year that I made an Advent Calendar for us as a family that was made up of fun things for us all to do together.  It has been fun, but I think it will only get better as the kids get older.  Here are some pictures of Christmas time at our house and a couple of the advent activities:

Thanksgiving 2011

This year I had Teagan help me with some fun Thanksgiving treats! We had a great time together! Here is what we made:

Cute, right?! Thank you Pinterest. Acorns made from kisses and nutter butter cookies!

On Thanksgiving Day, we went over to Rob & Cora's to be with the family. It was fun! This year Teagan, Estella, and Parker were big enough to create a new "kids" table...I guess our table can be renamed now, haha! The girls were ADORABLE together. They were so good. They were talking, giggling, and they actually ate their food too! It was fun watching them interact and really play with each other this year.  Here are some pictures from our day:
Movember madness... August couldn't be left out!
