A day at the park

Norah, blubbles, park. I am tired. This is my 9th post today. I just can't keep up with the blog. Anyone know of a site that lets you upload more than 5 photos at a time and does not put 40 lines of blank space between each one?

Norah is 15 months now and very busy. She is full on walking all over the place and getting into everything. The dishwasher, the trash, the fridge, the cat food (yeah, she ate that a few times last week) I have to keep a constant eye on her. She throws huge temper tantrums at a whim and then wants snuggles and kisses the next minute. Our most recent victory included getting her to wear and walk in shoes. Woo hoo! Okay, the little things make us happy. It is still amazing to hear her giggling and gibbering around the house. Barnabas and I appreciate every minute of it even if we don't love the screaming. She has surgery #3 this Thursday the 13th to separate the fingers on her left hand. We are anticipating it to go smoothly and for it to be outpatient again.

Adoption #2 is hitting the usual speed bumps. Nothing really exciting to report. We are still trying to get our dossier to ET by years end so that our official wait can start for Norah's sissy.

My favorite pic this month. =) Now it is freezing outside so it will be a while before I can go crazy with the camera again.

Ducks by our house.

Duck butt!

Our friends, the Misfits.


This was the best face she has ever made when I took the camera out. She loves playing with her beads every morning before school. My fairie princess. After 30 minutes of wrestling her into the costume during a kicking, screaming fit. Ahhhh, my little angel. This is Norah's second costume. I made the mistake of going to Gymboree on Halloween day and there was a clearance sale. Enough said.

She didn't really get the concept this year nor did she want to eat any candy. But she did like the mini pretzels!

Fun at the Pumpkin Patch

Pumpkin patch part 2 with the neighbors.
The boys and Norah on the hay pyramid.

Running with daddy.
She really did not want anything to do with the pumpkins.

A corn stalk works as a good wand.

I just could not get that shot that I wanted. I blame it all on Lauren & River.

Pumpkin carving. Ours was so bad that I did not even take a picture of it this year. Yep, that bad. If you want a cool pumpkin you can go look at Stacie's Obama pumpkin.

Norah's butt pumpkin... yeah, I did it. No, she was not thrilled with this. But come on, it's cute.
