Well, I hosted my first Thanksgiving and it was a lot of fun.  My parents were here along with my brothers Erik & Wade,  my nephew Ian, Faith & Riley.  The day after the amazing feast we went up to Breckenridge for the rest of the weekend.  Ian learned how to ski, Wade learned to snowboard and then rest of got some time on the mountain.  I hadn’t been riding since before I was pregnant.  I was a bit nervous that I wouldn’t still be able to “hang with the boys”, but it went off without a hitch.  I was really happy about that.  It was great to have all of my family together!  I sure wish we all lived closer.

Now we have Christmas…

Well, not officially, but I will do an after Christmas post.  (I have a New Year’s resolution to be a better blogger, lets hope this goes better than the old “lose 10 pounds” that I usually do)!  Mom and Sherry came to town last week/weekend, we did lots of shopping for Christmas and had some great girl time.  I love my mama and my cousin Sherry!  We took Riley to get his picture with Santa and dragged him all over the mall, he was a total trooper!  I have a great video of Riley cracking up, but I can’t get it to load on here.  Here is the Christmas preview


Riley can…

crawl (sometime with his belly off the ground)

pull himself up in his crib

pull himself up ANYWHERE

has pretty good strength & can stand on his own for about half a sec

when I pick him up and pat him, he pats me back

he says “da da da da da”  (he IS NOT saying “Dada” as in Daddy)!!!!

jabbers a lot
