For My Mom

I keep saying that I'll post pictures of our house, but haven't taken many yet.  Here's the family's the only room that's painted and mostly done.  I'll post more pictures in January after the floors have been put in and the rest of the walls have been painted.  :-)


We moved into our new house a few days before Halloween, so we got to trick or treat in our new neighborhood!  It was a lot of fun getting to meet all the neighbors.  Grant wanted to be a bee again this year (which made things a lot easier) and so we thought Kate should be a ladybug to go with him.  She ended up staying home with Daddy, answering the door, while Grant and I trick or treated. 

At the end of the night, all was quiet and I found these two in the kitchen, sharing a little drink.

Mr. Caterpillar

Grant's been finding lots of cool bugs in the backyard.  Yesterday he found a black caterpillar and Kate got to examine it.

Kate Kate

Don't you just want to sqeeze her?

Kate's New "Crawl"

Kate is getting much closer to walking since we got her a walker.  She's finally figured out that she needs to get her little rear end up in the air in order to stand up, but she hasn't figured out how to coordinate that with her arms.  The result is this funny new crawl.

Doctor's Visit

Both the kids had appointments with the doctor yesterday.  Last year's picture of Grant's checkup was quite sad, so I had to be sure to update with this year's picture.  Quite an improvement!

 This one is really blurry, but I love how you can see them both smiling.  I couldn't get another one with them both smiling at the same time.

The smiles lasted all the way until the shots.  Then there was just incessant screaming.  I think they were glad to see us leave.  On the way out we ran into Grant's new preschool teacher, so that helped make his day a little brighter.
