I am supposed to be marking reflections tonight, but I'm so not motivated....Instead I thought I would update what's going on in our household these days!

So let's go way Halloween. This is the first year that N really understood what was going on...and he loved every second of it. We had to deal with the "stinky" comments for the next month due to his choice of costumes, but he looked SOOO cute.

November is all a blur...birthdays, work, and just life in general... We did add 2 members to our family...Sandy and Hermy - the hermit crabs. M wants to be a vet when she grows up, and since there are allergies in our home, this seemed like the best alternative. I have to endure many comments about how I have crabs, but so far it's been worth it!

And now December. We're off to a busy start. We celebrate 2 family birthdays in December, and N's was first. He had a soccer themed party (hence the shorts & t-shirt in December)

And I attempted to make a soccer ball out of timbits (at the request of N) but it is next to impossible to stack timbits without gluing them together! I settled on arranging white and chocolate timbits to resemble the pattern of a soccer ball - you'll have to use some imagination!

Now I'm working at Christmas cards...I love doing a photo shoot with the kids. I might not get the best shot, but their personalities definitely shine through!

Next on the list...Christmas baking. If anyone has a great cookie recipe (no nuts, please!) I'd love to try it out :)
