Playing in Rayna's Room

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!

Christmas Tree Hunting

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 did find a few small patches of snow while we were looking for our tree. Rayna was so excited and couldn't wait to play in it. Guess it's a good thing we wore those snowboots! Of course, we had to finish off our trip with some hot cocoa. Yum!

Grandpa and Grandma's House

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!

Thanksgiving Day

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!

Rayna at the Park

On Thanksgiving Day we took the kids to the park for a bit so that Rayna could get out of the house and burn off some energy. She had so much fun playing and was such a big girl climbing all over the play structure.

Brady at the Park

Brady had lots of fun playing at the park too!

Fun with Grandpa & Grandma

The kids had a ball playing with Grandpa & Grandma over the weekend. I think Grandpa & Grandma had a lot of fun too!

9 Months Old!

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.

Watching the Beaver Game

Here are Brady and Daddy watching the Beaver game. Go Beavs!

Grandma & Grandpa Visit

Grandma Bonnie and Grandpa Chuck came over yesterday for a quick visit. It was so good seeing them. Rayna loved having more people over to play with her and Brady always loves the extra attention! Thanks for coming to see us!
