Happy Thanksgiving!!!!!!

I'm grateful for my husband, my little boy, family, friends, love, knowledge, science, freedom, books, and the Internet! Hope everyone has a fabulous day here in the States and I hope everyone not officially celebrating has a fantastic day of love and hope!

Let's not forget about our dear turkey we're eating...poor little guy.
But may we eat together as friends!!!!

October...Come and Gone

Whew, life is just super crazy. Archie was gone for 3 and 1/2 weeks in September...then October hit and Halloween and sicknesses and homework. It's just been a whirlwind of life! That's great, though, right???

Archie enjoyed Singapore a lot and brought back some fun stuff and good pics.

I spent a night up in the Heber area with my local book club discussing the Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins. Also went to a weekend getaway conference as well the next weekend.

Gabe got two sets of ear infections...not so fun, and is getting over the second one right now. But we were able to enjoy Halloween! Archie is always a pirate and Gabe went from a panda bear to Winnie the Pooh. I also colored my hair black and cut it shoulder length and decided to be a zombie Indian princess...Archie brought me back an Indian dress and other accessories!

Now we're working on getting the VW fixed and registered so it can run for another year!

Due to Gabe's numerous ear infections, we're probably going to have him get ear tubes. We're going in for a consultation tomorrow. I think he'll do so much better with them in and I'm hoping his speech will sky rocket or at least improve a bit more with them in.

We also get two Thanksgivings this year...one with Archie's family and one with mine. Boo yeah!

Gabe also received his first haircut in October...and it's already getting shaggy! His hair grows like Harry Potter's. Gabe also is getting better with words. He says please, bub-bye, more, water (he also signs it), hug, kitty, doggy, book...and others that I can't think of now. The experts say he should have a few more in his vocabulary...but hopefully he'll make it up with the tubes. He loves throwing things and hitting...not so good. So I'm hoping he'll love baseball when he's old enough to start playing! Gotta refocus his energy somehow. He also loves books. He loves looking through them himself and he loves having Archie or I read to him. I hope that continues as well.

Looking forward to November and the holidays! We also just got our family pictures taken yesterday at the American Fork Amphitheater! I can't wait to get them back. Gabe was a bit on the grumpy side so we had to bribe him halfway through with a sucker...so some of the pics have him sucking on a sucker! Oh well. Such fun memories.

Forgot to put on Gabe as Winnie the Pooh. I'll have to do that next post!
