Nothing beats a little breakfast serenade

She's such a good big sister to Gibson. She just adores him.  She was singing one of her own songs to him this morning.  She is always making up melodies for us to enjoy.  Daddy thinks singing might be in her future....

Our Thanksgiving Tree



Here are some of the things Owen and Lilly came up with that they are thankful for:
L: for Mommy, Daddy, Bubby, Baby Gibby
O: for somebody to walk (for legs to walk--we just had a conversation about that the other day), for Mommy and Daddy, for Jesus (when asked why: because He is good), for God (when asked why: because He helps us obey), for toys, for markers, for scissors 

Sippy time!

Trying a sippy for the first time.

Box Fun

I should have thought to have my camera out more this particular evening.  They had so much fun playing with the box from our new water heater.  It was a house, a tunnel, a slide off the couch, a tunnel slide off the couch, and this was the finale of the evening:

Turkey Turkey

Owen found a turkey craft in his Clubhouse Jr. magazine when it came in the mail and said, "Mommy, we have to make this! Can we make this?"
So in the next couple of days, I gathered the supplies and we crafted one evening.

Lilly was not about to be left behind in the painting.  She wanted to do her own project with the sponge shapes.

The final product:

The train love has been passed on

Gibson watched the train go around and around for quite some time during the peace and quiet of nap time one afternoon. He would reach out to catch the train everytime it came around.

A sibling affair

Anytime Gibson tries something for the first time...well, pretty much most of the time I am giving my attention to Gibson, the older two are right there with me.  He gets loved on alot! 
Here's Gibson trying puffs for the first time a couple weeks ago.  Bubby and Sissy both took their turns giving their brother a taste.

Running off some energy

While I got caught up on blogging, Gibson took a nap and Owen and Lilly had a blast playing on their bikes in the barn. Owen pulled Lilly on various bikes and they laughed and giggled a ton together! It is so great to watch them play and enjoy one another's company. 

Trick or Treating

 First stop: To see our cousins.

 Second Stop: Trunk or Treat on the boulevard. 

 Third Stop: Home. 
Lilly sneakily ate more candy than we know. 
 Gibson was tuckered out and ready for bed, but was a good sport all evening.
Owen got right to work counting his candy..which made me laugh because that is exactly what I remember doing as a kid--organizing, counting, and tallying my stash!
