Thanksgiving Week and Weekend

We had a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving week and weekend! After Auntie Honey left, Pat was able to take some time off of work so he returned home on Tuesday around noon and was home until Monday AM...we had so much fun! Not much time to write, but we had a blast and here are some pics from the week and weekend!
** Unfortunately I did not get any pictures on Thanksgiving Day...bummer...but Penny and Bob have some of them with all of the grandkids and when I get a copy from them, I will post it! **

Picking out the perfect Christmas Tree. We really do have a great tree this year!

Connor and Erin pretending Pat was Santa Claus (all Connor's idea because we found the hat while decorating and since Pat has a beard, Connor said he should be Santa! :))

Well Baby Visits

I am a little behind on this post, but wanted to post the stats of my two healthy children from their last couple of doctor's appointments.
Connor's Three Year Appointment: Dr. Boyce was very happy with Connor's growth & development and he continues to be our big kid. He weighed in at 36.5 pounds (90th percentile) and is 40.5 inches tall (95th percentile). Not bad for a kid who only likes snacks and not meals! :) He did get a flu shot and one updated was horrible! He looked at me like he could not believe I was letting them stick him with the needles and I felt horrible. I think kids getting shots may be worse for the parents!
Erin's One Month Appointment: At this appointment Erin weighed in at 7 pounds and was 19 3/4 inches long. Not sure percentiles, but she had grown since birth so we were all happy!
Erin's Two Month Appointment: We had this one today. She weighed in at 9 lbs 4 ounces and is 21 inches long. Not sure percentiles again, but she is definitely growing and that is all that matters. No real concerns with Ms. Erin either...she does tend to like to turn one way with her head so she is getting a little flat on one side (Connor got pretty flat so this did not surprise me) and we will work to make her turn her head to the left a little bit more to hopefully correct this. She also had her first round of vaccines and has been pretty much out the rest of the day...sleeping in our arms or in her swing. We are going to start working on a nighttime routine for her, with tonight being the first wish us luck!
All in all, two healthy kiddos...we are extremely blessed!


We have been busy, but we sure have been having fun!

Auntie Erin came to visit last week from Minnesota (I regret to say that I did not take one picture :() and we had a blast! She really enjoyed meeting Erin and spending time with Connor and I enjoyed having my best friend around for a few days. Love you and miss you tons!
Then, Auntie Honey came to visit for a few days after Erin left and we had a great time as well. It was great having an extra set of hands around and I got a ton done while Auntie Honey spent a lot of time holding Erin and playing with Connor. Auntie Honey was much better with her camera, so here are some pictures!
Connor is a great big brother!

Connor the Cowboy

We were playing the other day and Connor asked me if I had a cowboy hat he could cute is he! Plus, he had on the shirt and vest Meme and Pops gave him for his birthday that is just ADORABLE, so I had to post the pics and video. LOVE how he is standing in the second picture!
