Christmas is Starting

I am super excited for Christmas this year. We started celebrating the season by decorating - a task which Bethany loved. Rebekah didn't really get it, but loved all the new stuff to play with!


Happy Thanksgiving! We celebrated over at Mike and Mary's with lots of pies and fellowship. We're so thankful to have such an awesome family!

E is for Eeyore

I'm making my girls an ABC book for Christmas, and tonight we had fun taking pictures of some of our letters. I just had to share this one because Rebekah cracks me up!

Go, Bucks!!!

We were in Columbus for the OSU-Michigan game, which is practically a holiday down there! Matthew and his buddy, Andy, were the only ones with tickets to the game, but that didn't stop us all from going to enjoy the skull session. We took the bus (possibly Bethany's favorite part), and clapped/danced/yelled through the band's performance. And of course, had a bathroom emergency, which is always fun in a crowd of 15,000 people. All our cheering paid off. Go, Bucks!!!!

Almost Crawling

My little 6 month old is oh-so-close to crawling. She gets up on her hands and knees and rocks back and forth like a maniac, but she can't figure out where to go from there. In the meantime, she army crawls herself around everywhere, and can sit for a couple seconds by herself. AND she has her first tooth poking through on the bottom! All that drooling is paying off. (Sarah also wants me mention that her feet are still huge. Poor Bekah, getting teased like that.)

Rebekah had her check-up yesterday, and weighs 14 lbs, 11 ozs, and she's 27" long. Her head is back to it's normal size (no swelling!), which we were very excited about. She was a super smiley girl through the whole appointment, and all the nurses were admiring her!

Great Gram's

We went to visit Great Grandma today. She was very impressed with how fast Bekah gets around now! And the toddlers and her made a game out of trying to get a ball between each other's legs. Very entertaining!

Funny Face

I feel like I haven't blogged about Bethany in a while. So here's "Princess Bethany"'s funny little face for you!

Quiltie Debut

Rebekah finally got her own Quiltie. She's never had one, mostly because Bethany is so attached to them that I was afraid of her attacking Bekah for hers! But when she started stealing Bethany's taggies anyway, I decided that it was time Rebekah had her own. Turns out, Bethany doesn't mind too much! And it's a great way to promote The Quiltie Quack - I sold my first 3 this weekend!

Contagious Giggles

When Rebekah giggles, you can't help but giggle along with her. Bethany can get her laughing so hard, and she doesn't even have to put any effort into it. I, on the other hand, still have to go way out of my way to get giggles. It's very fun to see the two of them interact, so I'm not complaining!

Check out the super cute picture of Bekah and Jonas here.

In a Pickle

Yesterday Bethany was begging to put on her bear costume and go get candy, so I had to explain to her that she had to wait a very long time before she could do that again. To make her feel better, I told her that she could dress up as something different next year. I said, "What do you want to be next Halloween?" Bethany's response? "A pickle!" Where does she come up with this stuff?

Where'd the Summer Go?

Sometimes I look at Rebekah and think, "Oh my gosh, where did my little baby go?" Watching her try to crawl, take her own bottle... she's definitely not newborn anymore.


The 3 little bears had a blast this Halloween. We ran them ragged all weekend - Malloweening, trick-or-treating, trunk-or-treating, and even making an appearence at Grandma's office party. We had so much fun making these costumes, and I loved showing the kids off. Luckily, they didn't mind wearing them! Now, what to do with all that candy?
