Jangie Bell

This is not the most exciting video in the world, but we want to experiment with putting more videos on here. A couple days ago LK and I went to a store that had an elaborate Christmas diplay going on and Jingle Bells was playing. Her eyes were huge as she took it all it and in her most dramatic voice she said "OH... I like this song, I like this Jangie Bell" then she went on and on, " I like that ball (ornament), I like that star" but she kept coming back to "I like this song". So, she's been singing it for the past few days, full volume, at the grocery store and wherever else we are. For the record, I think she might have said "spider song" in the video as the other option of what to sing - I'm not sure. Notice she quickly abandoned that one and went back to old Jangie Bell.

A winter swim

We met our friends, the Andersons, at the YWCA and went swimming at their indoor pool. It was so nice to feel weightless. Lily Kate was very excited that she could touch the ground in the 2ft baby end of the pool and also that her voice echoed when she yelled in the pool area. She had fun with both!

Fall at Windy Gap

The fam spent the weekend at Windy Gap. Parks and LK got some quality time together while I did work crew with my YL quest folks. One of our work crew jobs was raking leaves and jumping in the piles and after Lily Kate got past the fact that it was "dirty" she thought it was really fun.

Big girl bed

So, I don't know if this is a permanent thing - and how early she get's out of bed tomorrow morning will probably determine this - but tonight LK is sleeping in her big girl bed. I don't know why it felt like such a big deal to me, but it did. She looked so little in that big bed. She has been asking to sleep there and tonight she was snuggled in the pillows asking so we said sure. She's "pe-tend seeping" in the lower picture for me so I could capture it on film. If you click on the pic you can see her eyes clenched shut :) such a drama queen.

"Trick a Treee"

It's always fun to experience a first - last night Lily Kate had her first trick or treating experience. She loved it. She would yell "trick a treeee" while we walked down the street but when the people would come to their doors sometimes she got stage fright and when we would ask "what do you say?" she would answer "I a sunk" or "thank you". It was great. So, Parks and I are campers, if you couldn't tell, and Kate is the little skunk who joined our party.
