Brady loves following Rayna into her room and playing with her toys. The other day, during Rayna's "naptime," she pulled out all of her stuffed animals and toys and covered the floor. Later that afternoon, Brady followed her in there and thought it was great! They both had a great time playing in there. It's so fun watching them play together!
We went out Sunday in search of the perfect Christmas tree. We drove out past Merlin, along the river for awhile and then up into the hills. It was a beautiful drive. We thought it would be pretty cold since it was at home that morning, but when we got there, it was really sunny and warm. We had a picnic out in the forest and then started our search. We didn't have to go far. Just a few feet from where we were sitting was a beautiful tree that looked just right. We chopped it down and brought it home. It is now up in the house with lights on and the kids love it!
We went up to Portland for the long Thanksgiving weekend. We had a fun time visiting Grandpa Larry and Grandma Becky. We got to see some friends and enjoyed some after Thanksgiving shopping. Rayna especially liked the neighbors Christmas lights that were up! Thanks for having us come visit!
I tried getting a picture of the kids together on Thanksgiving, but it seemed like one was always grumpy when I tried. We had a great day though, visiting with family and friends and eating lots of yummy food! Brady even got to try his first turkey dinner. He wasn't real sure about most of it, but did like the sweet potato casserole!

Brady is 9 months old today. He is growing so fast. I am not sure how much he weighs since he has outgrown the baby scale at my mom's group. He goes in for his 9 month check-up next week so we'll find out then. He army crawls all over the house and gets into everything! He is such a funny boy and loves to smile and laugh.

So, here is Brady at naptime this afternoon. He's supposed to be sleeping, but I hear him hollering so I go in his room to check on him, and there he is, stuck in his crib. It's not the first time it has happened. He keeps pushing on the bars with his feet and then his foot gets stuck. The other day he had his leg, all the way up to his knee, stuck in the bars. Silly boy.
