Natalie Reese

As I stated in the previous post, I got to meet my new neice Natalie while we were in Missouri for Thanksgiving. Here are few more pictures to document her cuteness! We love her already, and can't wait to see her again. Of course, she'll probably be twice this size by Christmas!

I had intended to set this post to load in a few days, but somehow messed up and don't feel like reloading the video, so I'm just leaving it alone. I was trying to video Lincoln walking, but he preferred to talk. Ok, maybe none of the words are actually distinguishable, but it's cute, right?

Turkey Day

We celebrated Thanksgiving in Missouri with my family. I didn't get all the pictures I would have liked, but here are a few to document the day. The addition of Mr. Lincoln to my life seems to have made it more difficult to spend my time shoving my camera in everyone's face, but I did manage to annoy a few people with my flash. I really hate it though that I didn't get many pictures of my siblings this year. As all of our families keep growing, everyone is just so tied up feeding, changing, and/or entertaining all the babies! I got to meet my new neice Natalie Reese for the first time over Thanksgiving. She was born on the 17th, so I had to wait a whole week! I always seem to forget how tiny the newborn babies are. She is quite precious! The girls posed for pictures with their great-grandmas, Dad played with the only boys of the family, Lincoln and Kevin cheesing it up for the camera, and my mom holding Miss Natalie.
Throughout the day the girls enjoyed playing games. My grandma bought them the headbandz game which was quite a hit with Kevin and the girls. They then convinced my parents to play Old Maid and Memory with them. They are starved for attention don't you think?

Londyn the Pilgrim

So, Londyn had a Thanksgiving Feast at school the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. I haven't exactly been on top of my mom game lately. I had signed up in early October to send candy corn for the feast and forgot until the night before. I did manage to find the candy corn at the last minute thankfully, but it was quite a hunt. Christmas has completely taken over the stores! Then, I was a little late to the program and missed all of the singing. I felt awful, but I did get a personal showing later in the afternoon. Therefore, this one photo of her decked out in her pilgrim gear is the best I could do this year. We've been celebrating Thanksgiving with my family in Missouri, so many more Thanksgiving pictures to come! I hope you and yours have all enjoyed a few restful days with family and friends!

Pre-Thanksgiving Visit

Kevin's parents joined us last weekend for a little Pre-Thanksgiving family time. The girls always love having grandparents come and stay with us. I'm quite sure they take full advantage of these opportunities. We're glad they were able to spend a little time with us in Oklahoma, and we're looking forward to seeing them again at Christmas in Portland!
The girls and the grandparents. Lincoln was too busy eating to get in on the photo grandparent photo with his sisters.

Lincoln and Grandaddy having a little fun with the glasses. (In case you were wondering, I did fully dress him including shoes and socks on both feet. Unfortunately, it just doesn't last. I'm sure you understand.)

Because I Love Him..

And because being entertained and trying to entertain this little guy is where most of our extra time and energy is exerted which leaves me with a lack of anything else to post.
"Sure mom, I'll stand, but I'm not going to walk, don't you even try to make me. Walking is overrated anyway. I can get where I need to go just fine by crawling, and you know that if I'm moving to0 slow one of my sisters will come scoop me up and carry me around. So, just in case you havent noticed mom, I'm not interested! " -Lincoln

Dapper Dan

Kevin thought Lincoln needed a suit. I think Lincoln liked it. He refused to stand on his own to have his photo taken in it, but he at least smiled. I think he felt very confident as he attended church that morning. He looks a little goofy in this picture, but you get the idea.
Like father, like son. This boy LOVES his daddy!

He likes me sometimes too:)

Pumpkin Carving

We waited until the last minute, but we finally got around to carving a couple of pumpkins. Skylar enjoyed doing it all herself. She was very persistent and after quite some time, finally finished her design. Londyn was more interested in watching her dad carve her pumpkin, but was excited about the final product.

Good Guy Carnival

So, it's almost Thanksgiving, and I haven't even finished up the Halloween posts. I swear time is flying! One of our Halloween adventures included the annual Good Guy Carnival at our church. We didn't spend too much time there, considering Lincoln was less than thrilled with the goings on, and Londyn really wanted to trick-or-treat. The girls did however manage to grab a bite to eat, play a few games, and come home with lots of candy. Following the carnival, I took Londyn trick or treating, Lincoln hit the sack, and Skylar was beside herself to hand out candy to the few trick-or-treaters that stopped by our house. It was a great, fun-filled weekend!
