Cutting down our tree with Daddy and visiting Santa!

Sam and Naomi love their ball pit from Aunt Julie and Uncle Nick! Sam thinks Naomi's staticky hair looks like a porcupine, but he gets the animals mixed up and he says she looks like a raccoon.

Sam had a great first visit--his teeth are nice and clean!

We've been meaning to post these photos for a while--Naomi's first haircut! She did great, no tears at all!

Sam will try just about anything if it's on a spatula (or masher):

Happy Birthday, Sam!

Sam requested banana bread for his birthday breakfast, so I am busy baking with my helper. Happy birthday, Sam!

Thank you, Great Grandma!

Sam and Omi love the cards--thanks!!
(Sam tells me they will use their birthday money to buy "yummy vegetables". Trust me, after this week of birthdays and Halloween those veggies will be a welcome addition!)

Just arrived at the library for Story Time. These two are so sweet...

Sam really enjoyed his first movie in the theatre--"Monsters University". He thought the giant snacks were great and, yes, ate/drank it all!

Me: Would you like anything else to eat? Some yogurt?
Sam: Um, yes. I want a lemon.
Me: Lemon yogurt?
Sam: No. A lemon.
Me: They aren't really good by themselves, are you sure you want lemon? They make your mouth pucker.
Sam: I want a lemon.

The result (and in his defense, he did give the lemon a good try before deciding he didn't like it):

Tiny Dancers

Sam loves dancing--he can't resist the music, even in his chair...

...and Naomi isn't far behind!

Snack Time

Naomi was really hoping Sam would share--too bad she is too little for fruit snacks!

Crazy Hair!

She might wake up with some wild hair, but she sure is happy!

The first time both kids rode in the cart side-by-side:

Outer Banks

The whole family had a fun trip to North Carolina! Grandma and Papock rented a beach house for a week and we got to hang out with them, Uncle Mark, Uncle Mike and Miss Erin, and Emily and Clara (Sam and Naomi's cousins). We caught blue crabs in the sound, played on the beach, swam in the pool, and had a great time!

Omi & Penny

Naomi is so excited to see Penny up close (usually the cats run away from her pretty quickly)!

Sam's Spaceship

Sam loves playing in here. He tells us he's going to "Lake Tagatogama" to catch some walleye fish, and that he's wearing his buckles (seatbelt). He gets very disappointed that the cats won't go in there with him. Those two cushions on the left are a carseat for Naomi. He also gets a little disappointed that she doesn't want to play in there for long (i.e., Mom doesn't want her falling off the couch!):

Sam piled all of these toys in with Naomi, and then climbed in too!

Juice pop!

Sharing a juice pop in the stroller after a long walk and a trip to the park:

Playing Under the Table

There's something about the space under tables and chairs that kids seem to find irresistible:

Funny Girl

Some cool weather makes for a pleasant trip to the playground. Omi never stays on the blanket, and seems to think it's funny to put wood chips in her mouth (but a nice shot of those two teeth and red toenails!)

Standing (part 2)

Naomi is getting so good at standing! 

Sam was helping her read some books:
