Lucky for us Sylvia doesn't mind sharing her bath time with Violet. At some point sharing with little sister won't be fun anymore, but for now we will enjoy all the sister love.
Thanks for all the great pictures Auntie!

Just a quick note of birthday wishes to Grandma from Sylvia and the Chickens!
Sylvia is singing “Happy Birthday”

This is the time of year when everybody gets mushy and lets everyone know what they are thankful for. This blog doesn't get mushy to often, but this was a year of many thanks and so much to be grateful for.
We were about 10 months behind on getting our photos developed so when I was sorting through the stacks and they were in this order it was a bit shocking to me.
Fast forward 5 1/2 months and we have two healthy girls that love each other like only sisters can.
We wish you all a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving weekend.

The back of the letter with cut outs from the Toys R Us circular. To be honest, I think these are here 5th-9th picks, as we cut her top 4 out earlier in the week and they were in my car during this crafting session.
We also had time to watch one of my favorite holiday movies -Elf. Yes, it may be a "dumb" movie, but I like the message...
The first snow of the year. After the shoveling was done, several sled rides were given, a snow fort was built, and Sylvia still wasn't ready to come inside. Next step - roll around in the culdesac for a while! I think this will be a good winter.
And finally, nothing says winter time like some Easy Bake Oven. Sylvia has become quite the helper in the kitchen, and she was able to enjoy her "cake" for a treat on Sunday night. Notice she is all decked out in her Vikings cooking apron (Thanks Auntie Jane).
Testing the done-ness with a toothpick - great form Sylvia!
What's in store for this long weekend? Maybe we will get a tree!

Other favorites include "Go Dog Go", "Children's Nursery Rhymes" and Jamie's personal favorite "The Difference Between Boy's and Girl's" straight from the 'totally improper collection' that we have been building for years!
Can't wait to see what we will be reading next week!

From what it sounds, the girls all had fun. That could've done a little better on the candy collection, but I guess we really don't NEED anymore that what we already had!

It is that time of the year again... Late October means the leaves are changing colors, the temps are dropping, Jamie is one year older, and it is Celbration Time! (For those reading this that are not familiar with the history, about 5 years ago I made t-shirts for our group of friends and misspelled celebration and since then, it has stuck)
This year the weather was perfect once again. We had a pretty good sized group and as a host it seemed like it was pure chaos, but the guests seemed to be enjoying themselves.
The day after the party was filled with clean, washing dishes, cleaning, washing more dishes, and then washing a few more dishes. Of course the little one are not quite to the age of cleaning, so instead Sylvia wanted to try on her costumes from prior years.
