November 2013

November happenings:

Noah got some lego stuff for his birthday & has loved building stuff. He's really good at it. He did this one in just a few hours!

Abby cuddling with dad and her baby doll!

11/3/13: Abby turned 6 months old. She wore her cupcake shirt in honor of her half-birthday!

Russ, Suzanne & I ran the "Shun the Sun" race. Abby, Noah, Ellie, and Lance supported us!

Russ and I did the 5k and Suzanne did the 10k. Russ took second place in his age division!

Looking good for church!

Abby loves her blankee.

Abby always looks so cute bundled up and ready for her morning jog with mom!

Russ got me a baby seat for my bike for my birthday and Abby loves it!

 So funny to catch Abby "reading" her books...

We think that EVERYTHING Abby does is cute... like resting her chin on her hand!

Abby met Santa for the first time! She really didn't like him, despite the look on her face that says otherwise! She was looking at me and not Santa when the picture was snapped! :)

Noah ran in the 3rd grade turkey trot and completed 1.5 miles!

We did a little bit of Black Friday shopping late Thanksgiving night. I'm not sure if it counts since it was only 10pm, and the store we went to (Dick's) wasn't crowded at all (probably because the deals weren't that great). Noah hated it and Abby loved it... obviously!

Russ took the training wheels off of Sophie's bike and she got on it and took off! Just in time to participate in our family bike ride the next day.That smile on her face is the cutest!

 On the Saturday after Thanksgiving, we did our annual Sherwood bike ride & football game at Freestone park...
