Thanksgiving 2009

We drove up to Virginia last Wednesday to spend the Thanksgiving with Mom's family. Aunt Shelley and Uncle Mike hosted their first Thanksgiving dinner and they did an excellent job. Aunt Shelley decorated her house beautifully and even had a special kids table with crafts, place cards and pilgrim hats!

After dinner, all of the kids jumped on the trampoline and the adults played corn hole. It was a great afternoon and we enjoyed catching up with our family.

We have so much to be thankful for!

Sailing Boats

We were so excited when our friend Kirby invited Noah and Jude to sail paper boats with him last week! His mommy, Bebe, made boats for everyone and we launched them in the Willow Branch creek. Noah called Grandma afterward to tell her to be on the lookout for his boat, he was convinced it would make it to the river and sail to her house!

Baby Roe can't wait until he's big enough to sail a boat!

Today we went to Noah's Thanksgiving celebration at preschool. He was so proud of his pilgrim hat and he sang his class song so well! It was funny to watch him search the crowd for us and to watch his eyes light up when he finally spotted us. He was even more excited when he saw that Noushin, Uncle Alex, Grandma and Grandma's friend Penny were there to watch him too. Noah loves going to school and we have so much to be thankful for!

Triple Trouble!

Cousin Bodie came to visit for the weekend and the three boys had a blast! Noah and Jude wasted no time in showing Bodie all of the fun in our backyard.

We headed down to grandma's house on Saturday and played all day!

Genie drove us around for a little while...

We fished for a little while...

And we swung in the hammocks!

Sunday we had a great lunch outside by the river...

It was such a fun weekend and Noah and Jude were happy to teach Bodie all of their tricks!

We can't wait to see Bodie for New Years!

2 Year Check Up

Last week, Jude went in for his 2 year check up. He weighed in at 27 pounds (50%) and is 36.5 inches tall (90%). Noah tagged along with us to the doctor- and for the first time, it was not chaos with both boys there! Noah sat quietly and drew pictures while Dr. Sanchez examined Jude. He said that everything looks great and was satisfied with his speech development. Jude is picking up new words each day and it seems like we are on the verge of a vocabulary explosion... at least we hope so! The frustration level is getting pretty high as he tries to communicate his desires! We are working on it though!


This year for Halloween, Noah was a Fireman and Jude was a dalmation.

We went a great party at our friends' Ruthie and Edward's House and then everyone trick-or-treated together.

It was a pretty hot afternoon, but the kids all had a blast!
