finally, an update!!!!!

It's not my fault, really! Blogger has been giving me a lot of trouble when I try to uplaod pictures. But I've realized they load quickly in my bedroom, so I will do it there from now on!!

let's see... lots of updates since I haven't updated since the snake!

Thanksgiving was great. We went to Grammy and Djia djia's house. Mike, Renee and Leah were there too. Leah was absolutely adorable- laughing and smiling! owen loved her, a little too much in fact. I don't think she's used to being attacked by toddlers. :) The boys ate raviolis and then 'didn't have room' for turkey. silly boys!

trying to remember what picture i posted....

Sam is growing quickly lately. She's been going to sleepovers and movies with her friends, and having friends over just to hang out. It's nice to get to know her friends and watch them interact.
Basketball has started and she's on the CYO team and also the school modified team. the CYO team won their first game, 37 to 15!
She also made principal's list again this first quarter, yippee for her!! AND- she was student of the month for November!

Will also did great on his report card. He is a solid B, which makes us happy!
LieLie shed her skin, i know i posted a picture of that. It was cool to watch.
Will found a book he LOVES-- Diary of a Wimpy Kid. he bought it on a friday and had it finished in a couple of days! It is so awesome to see him reading a book, and not being able to keep his nose out of it! He says he can't wait for the next one.

Colby is doing well also. he has had quite the personality lately! He wore his pajamas inside out and backwards- two pairs- to try to get a snowday. It worked! We got lots of snow last week. all of the kids loved it.
We saw santa, he and i and owen... he asked for a snowboard. he got a nerf gun too, which he loves!

Owen loves the snow also, even though when he falls he can't get back up! The other day when the boys went out to do wood, Owen went and got his boots and gave them to Colby, because he wanted to go outside too! it was so cute, we just had to bring him outside.
owen already has spilled water on my laptop, which makes the P not work right. Also a few more keys, including the shift key, which is why some of my letters are not capitalized when they are supposed to be. I hate that but it's so time consuming to go back and keep switching them!
Owen also saw santa, and loved him! It was very cute.
He's been talking a lot lately, even though he only says "da, dee, di" and other forms of the letter D. He babbles right along though. He also points and it sounds this "dis" (this?) so I am constantly telling him what everything is.
He loves the picture of himself in the hallway. He kisses it!

Art has finally rented his house- happy day!
And we are almost ready for christmas. We have a house full of very excited children, and adults! I love Christmas!!! We put our tree up, and then it fell down, and then we put it upagain. :)

Hope you enjoy this update!
