In other news, we had family photos on Saturday morning at an area park. We had originally scheduled a photo session for next Sunday, but that had to be changed and the only available slots were 9 a.m. and noon this past Saturday. Noon is dangerously close to Finley's naptime so I didn't want to risk that and thought 9 a.m. might be better since the boys have been waking super early due to the time change. Wrong! lol Kieran woke with puffy allergy eyes and wasn't feeling super perky due to that and his teething. Plus he decided he wanted to sleep in on this particular day (figures lol). Finley was all about exploring this awesome new place... sticks, rocks, dirt, dirt and did I mention more dirt? We'll be lucky if he was dirt free in any of the photos. The best smiles we got were of Finley eating dirt with dirt all over his face! This should be interesting... Stay tuned for the Christmas card!
After photos, my wonderful mother-in-law and father-in-law (have I told you how great they are?) watched Finley and Kieran so that Andrew and I could do a few things and hang out alone. We had a late breakfast at Denny's then went over to Hobby Lobby to window shop. They ended up having an awesome sale so we bought a few deeply discounted items to try and make a lot of our Christmas presents. I hope they turn out good. I won't go into full details since a lot of my readers are on our Christmas list. We also enjoyed browsing around Wal-Mart then went to Starbuck's and had free drinks (Andrew had a gift card). It was sooo nice and cold out. We enjoyed the day immensely. Thanks Ted and Lanelle! The boys got to spend lots of time with their grandparents this weekend and they loved it. I hope the grandparents aren't too worn out though.
I am excited about Thanksgiving coming up. I just love the holidays. Sunday, we are having our Thanksgiving with my mom and two younger sisters. I look forward to seeing everyone. We don't get to see each other nearly enough. On Thanksgiving day, we'll see the other side of the family. Family and food is always such a blessing. I know the boys will enjoy it as well.
Late breaking news... Ok, as I am writing this, Kieran is shocking the pants off me! He is rolling all over the place getting irritated that his body won't do what he wants. He has also been getting on his hands and knees and rocking like he wants to crawl. Well he just got up on his hands and feet twice and is getting so mad he can't do what he wants. I can't believe this! I need to find a camera, fast! lol He's trying to grow up way too fast for me!
Here are some recent photos...
