Friday we had our 'social committee' outing for work. We decided to go to the Iowa Wild hockey game! We went to Buzzard Billy's beforehand for some dinner and then enjoyed the game! It was fun and we had a good turn out!
Saturday we hung out and got ready for Steve's family Thanksgiving in Earlham. Presley was very shy at first (like always) but Piper joined right in. Grandpa Jerry is always very impressed that she is the first grandkid (out of 12 kids) that doesn't cry at the sight of him! LOL! They had a couple bonding moments, he would put his hat on her or she would hand in the stuffed lion...but this is the only crappy picture I got of them!
Jason and Christie got two new kittens....Piper loved them! She followed them, growled at them and was just overall excited to see them in the room. Presley on the otherhand was NOT impressed and didn't want them around her at all!
Even cousin Derek tried to play with Piper and she didn't mind....Presley ignored everyone that talked to her. Everyone kept commenting on how different Piper is from Presley! TOTALLY!
We got home about 9 pm (which is usually early for us) both kids went to sleep right away when we got home......and they didn't get up until after 8:30 this morning! It's one of those moments as a parent when you wake up and wonder if you should go check on them to make sure they are still alive! But I am not complaining!
We knew we had to get our Christmas decorations out this weekend since we won't have time before the weekend of the 13th and that is just too close to Christmas! Presley was excited and a very big help. She was excited about every ornament she pulled out, like she had never seen them before!
Piper, was NOT a big help. She was a pain in the ass! We basically took turns occupying her AWAY from the tree b/c all she did was rip things off the tree. When Presley was this age we had the tree in the living room at our old house, so it wasn't in sight! Out of sight, out of mind! Not with this girl!
Then me and the girls headed to my parents house to watch the Packer game. Originally we weren't going to go but then decided it would be easier to get stuff done around the house if the kids weren't there! So Steve stayed behind and did all the cleaning! (yes ladies, he cooks and cleans...bathroom floors, toilets, kitchen, oh yeah!) Piper took a nap all afternoon, perfect timing for me to actually watch the game without having her as a distraction. :)
We have a busy, busy week ahead but I'll try to post again before we leave for Mexico!!!! :)
