We went to my grandparents for Thanksgiving Lunch and to Andrew's Dad's Family's after that.  Poor Lo wasn't feeling well so it was pretty uneventful and filled with snuggling her.

The following evening we went to Andrew's mom's house for Thanksgiving dinner.  His Aunt Peggy and his Grandpa Fritz were there.  It was nice.

Then on Saturday we went back to my mom's house to have Thanksgiving over there.  My dad had to work on Thanksgiving day and Shannon and her family were out of town, so she wanted to do a dinner where they could all be there too.  We tried to get our annual Thanksgiving picture, but trying to get three toddlers to cooperate for a picture is rather difficult these days.  All-in-all it was a great holiday with so much to be thankful for!

Family pictures

We took our last family pictures as a family of 3.  Andrew's friend took some for us outside in our neighborhood and I love them!!  We also had a few taken by a local photographer in town who is amazing!  The ones with Lo in them turned out so sweet.  I can't believe in two short months we will be welcoming a new baby boy into our family.  Seems so surreal..

Halloween Weekend 2014

We had a great Halloween weekend!  We started off by going to Hallowzooeen the day before Halloween.  It was a zoo!  There were so many people there and the traffic was crazy.  I think its safe to say we probably won't be going back any year soon.  Thankfully, Andrew volunteered to recreated the entire experience in our back yard from here on out. 

Friday, Lo and I hung out during the day, did a little shopping, and then rested up for trick-or-treating. 

We just stayed in our neighborhood that night.  It was freezing!  But Lo had fun.  She kept trying to eat all her candy as she was getting it.  There's no telling how much she ate that night.  I kept asking her if she was cold, and she would say, "no, I'm warm."  Then by the end of the night she was telling her daddy that her hands were freezing and that she wanted to go home.

Regardless of the freezing cold, it was a fun night with great family and friends and I can't wait to do it year after year with this sweet girl!  Lots of fun memories!!

Funny things Lo says - October 2014

"I ate so good!"

While laying down with her at night before she goes to sleep...She heard my phone vibrate and told me, "I heard dat."

"I wanna cuddle mommy"

"Honk" While honking my nose

While touching my belly when we were laying down, "I love my baby brother, I hold my baby brother, Here you go baby brother, baby brother come out, I pet baby brother."

"Mommy scratch your back" Telling me to scratch her back.

"I like your pretty shirt." As I am wearing her daddy's Yankee t-shirt.

"Youre welcome."

After I asked her is she was a turkey?  She told me, "No, I'm obsessed with play doh."

"I love mommy."  unprompted

"I want my princess please." Talking about her magic clip dolls.

"I want to go to punkin atch." 

While grabbing my hand when we were sitting on chair together, she tells me "mommy my best friend."

After asking her is she pooped..."No, I'm all clean."

We were in Pottery Barn Kids and she was pushing around this car and just started belting out "Driving in my car!"

While shopping at Target, she picks up something and says "Let's buy it."

"Mommy looks so pretty."

"Don't leave me."

"Mommy my best friend"

"I'm shy," after pulling through a drive thru to get food.

I was talking to Lo about her cousins birthday party and the fact that we needed to go buy presents and she said, "I want to buy Lolo a present. It's my birthday."  I told her that she already had a birthday, to which she responds, "my birthdays in a week."

As we were watching Ice Age she was cracking up, laughing so hard, then she looks over to her daddy and says, "daddy this is so funny!"

"I love baby brother."

"Where'd my daddy go."

Such a sweet girl. Such a sweet soul.  Love her so very much!
