Wordless Wednesday : Turkey girl

I just have to share Little Miss's Thanksgiving outfit. We got it at Cracker Barrel and I just LOVED it.

I'm also pretty fond of the munchkin wearing it ;)

Party Fun

On Saturday we had a really good time at my sister in laws birthday get together. There was a lot of food and sweets (Little Miss was in heaven!) We also had a blast playing catch phrase. Every time that game comes out it always turns into an hour of cracking up.

Here is Little Miss enjoying a chocolate sucker. She had WAY too many sweets, but she had a blast. She was a little ham all night and loved being the center of attention.

My sister-in-law just turned 16. She is such a good kid. I am grateful to have her as my sister :) She acts WAY older than 16 so she always wants to hang out with me. I don't mind, I really enjoy her company.

We had a really good time and can not wait for Thanksgiving for some more family fun.

November Misc

I can not believe how fast this month is going! Thanksgiving on THURSDAY?!?! I thought I had at least two more weeks. That means Christmas is quickly approaching and I have hardly even started the shopping game yet.

We have been staying very busy around here this month. We have been doing story time at our library, and Little Miss gets so excited to go. I love seeing her interact with other little ones. While we are there she acts so independent, which is a big change for her. It makes me happy and sad all at the same time.

She has taken a new love for dressing up. I have always dolled her up since she was born, but now she wont leave the house without bringing me all her hair stuff. She loves wearing necklaces and putting lotion on. She is so fun! I love that she is so girly. :)
She also loves wearing my shoes and her Daddy's shirts. She gets so proud of herself when we let her play with them.

We have a busy week ahead of us. We have my sister in laws birthday dinner tonight, Thanksgiving dinner at church tomorrow, story time, and prepping for our many dinners Thursday. I can not wait to be a pig :) I'm sure Little Miss will be excited about the food and attention as well.

Chicken Pox!

Ever since Little Miss was born I have stressed over her one year shots. The MMR scared me and I was unsure if the chicken pox vaccine was necessary. After much discussion with the husband, and research online, we decided to delay the shots until 14 months and go ahead with the chicken pox vaccine per the husbands wishes.

Now, a week after getting the shots we have CHICKEN POX! Oh the joy. Yes, it is a mild case, but would I have gotten her the shot if I knew this might happen?! NO!

This was yesterday when the bumps started showing up. They are pretty concentrated on her arm, neck, and a few on her legs. She has been in good spirits and does not act like she does not feel well. She is a little more tired than usual, but other than that she is doing great.

We decided to opt out of the flu shot for her, so I hope we made the right choice.
