Update post for Thanksgiving, first movie, and Santa pictures

It has been well over a month since my last post. We have been very busy. Thanksgiving came and went in a flash. In December we took Gabbie to see her first movie - The Princess and the Frog. It was a really cute movie and she had so much fun! We went to see Santa twice. The first time she refused to sit on his lap but the second time she actually did and we got pictures!!!!

Just a week ago a parent at Gabbie's school drove her car into the building and it happened to hit right where Gabbie was sleeping on her cot. The wall broke and knocked her a few feet still sleeping on her cot. Her teacher apparently ran up to her and had to wake her up. It just so happens that we arrived 3 minutes after it happened for the Christmas party for her class. Nothing like pulling up to your child's school to see a car has hit the building at your daughter's room and finding out she was sleeping right there where it hit. Fortunately no one was hurt. Gabbie slept through it all so she doesn't remember! I think the staff was a little more shook up but hopefully this long break will help! Now for pictures.

A party for Jack and random photos

Today we went to Jack's 3rd birthday party. It is hard to believe Gabbie and Jack are now 3. It seems like just yesterday they were both like this.

And this....

Look at them now. Where has the time gone? Crazy!

I think a great time was had by all at the party today, especially the kids! Seriously there were enough kids there for a daycare center! I know Gabbie had a blast! Happy Birthday Jack! Here are a few party pictures.

Here are the adorable Green twins. This was the best photo I could get of the two of them together. They are both walking and constantly on the go! They are too sweet.

Gabbie and Jacob playing with the dragon toy.

This was taken on Steve's birthday. She looks like such a big girl!

Two photos of my happy girl with that gorgeous smile!

Finally my birthday was on November 12th. Look at the awesome cake Gabbie picked out for me! Daddy let her pick one and she selected a princess one. How shocking!!!! I loved the cake and my princess balloon:)

Apple picking

Yesterday we went apple picking. It was my first time ever going as well as Gabbie's first. We took a ferry across the river from MO to IL. That was a first for us too. It was somewhat scary to be sitting in your car floating across the river. On the way there Gabbie wanted nothing to do with it. She refused to get out of the car even though Steve, Peyton, and some of our friends were out looking. She sat on my lap clinging on to me. Fortunately on the way back she had a change of heart and we got the full experience! Apple picking was fun. We even went pumpkin picking too. The girls had a blast!

Gabbie picking her very first apple.

Here it is! She was so proud!

She started to get in the swing of things and was throwing apple after apple into the bag.

Here is Steve giving his friend Dave a lift to the top of the apple tree. Silly men!

I love this picture! Mia and Peyton were carrying their bags over their shoulders and Gabbie had to do the same thing. Her bag was heavy but nothing was going to stop her from being like the big girls!

Mia, Gabbie, and Peyton with the huge pumpkin

Here is Gabbie riding Peppermint the pony.

My strong man holding Peyton and Gabbie

I love this one too. She had such determination when jumping!

The girls again

Silly boys again! I do like this picture though!

Here we are on the way back on the ferry. Not the best picture but it works!

Peyton came over after apple picking to play a while.

My happy girl

I love her beautiful hair! Her hair is so long and her curls are so pretty.

Gosh I love this child!

Birthday party, football, and extra pictures

Yesterday we went to a birthday party for the Green twins. It is hard to believe they are a year old already! Here are some pictures from the party.

Gabbie and Jack - these two are so cute together. Anytime Jack was out of Gabbie's sight she asked where Jack was!

Another cute one of Gabbie and Jack

Daddy and Gabbie started playing football outside while the kids were playing kid games!

Daddy going back to the high school days hiking a ball but this time to his baby girl.

Is she going to catch it?

Of course:) Okay not really but she got it and started running like a pro.

Here she is again running for the ball.

And bringing it back

Here are the birthday boys enjoying their cake!

Gabbie at the park a couple of weeks ago.

Gabbie on her Daddy's shoulders as happy as can be!

We took Gabbie to Dis-ney on Ice two days after her birthday. I think she was kind of shocked through the whole thing. We had 2nd row seats that were incredible! She enjoyed it a lot and still talks about it and asks to go back!
