The kids hamming it up. Jaren had built a tower with his blocks and it was as tall as him.

Thanksgiving pics/ the tree goes up

We celebrated Thanksgiving at home this year. We had a funeral and Funeral dinner the next day so we stuck around here for this year. We also put our tree up that evening as well. Jaren has been wanting to put it up for months!! He was very excited this year to "help". The nativity is the one we got in the Dominican Republic a few years ago.

The joys of taking 2 kids pictures together. Part 1

Yes this was very interesting to say the least! Part 2 will be coming with the attempted Christmas pictures.

Clarisa 6 months

Here are some pics of our 6 month little girl. She is into everything within her reach. She is eating baby food, sitting up by herself, puts herself to sleep at night and sleeps all night. She loves her brother and watches him play.
