Thankful Memories

Last week Eric's parents, brother and grandparents joined us for Thanksgiving. We were even lucky enough to have his grandparents visit with us for one whole week. The kids absolutely adore all of them and loved having everyone here to celebrate Thanksgiving. The food was delicious but the company was divine!

I ♥ this picture of Lexie giving Lapiz a hug.

I loved seeing all of the wonderful things my babies have created over the past Thanksgivings.
It won't be long before that fridge is completely filled and my heart will feel heavy.

Steps away from walking!

Lexie's physical therapist brought a walker today for Lexie to practice on. Lexie is really good at alternating her feet but her main issue seems to be balance. However, after a couple dry runs with her walker she has been doing so well. We will need to work on turning and not running into walls, but other than that I think it is going to work out nicely. At the end of the day she actually took one step towards Eric without the walker. Who knows? Maybe the walker is just what she needs to boost her confidence.

Lexie's helper

This video is about 2 months old but I realized that I have never posted a video of Lexie in her walker. She can do more damage and get around quicker so I refer to it as her "helper". She is super fast so you really have to watch your ankles and she has no problem getting around doorways or going on the carpet. I think she enjoys the independence.

Happy Halloween

What does a daredevil archaeologist, a kidnapped princess, and a nocturnal bird have in common?

They make the cutest Halloween costumes!!

This year Ethan chose to be Indiana Jones, Gracie chose to be Rapunzel, and Lexie was nice enough to allow me to choose her costume so she was an owl. I made her costume.

It was a great day/night full of Halloween fun!

Oh Rapunzel! Rapunzel! Let down your hair!

I love her chesser!

Seriously! Just one picture?

About ready to go haunt!

Whip has been tested all week so it is ready to go!

Ethan helping Lexie stand up! Little stinker was not in the Halloween spirit.

We meet up with Gabrielle and Gavin (our Godson) for pictures
