Trip to Iowa

Well, its been way too long since my last post but I would like to start blogging more again! I can't believe the holidays are around the corner. We are already in the spirit at our house b/c I put our Christmas decorations up already. We are celebrating Thanksgiving with friends Wednesday night, and going to my Grandparents house in Tucson on Thanksgiving Day. Should be delicious and fun!

Last week we got back from a really fun trip to Iowa. We went to celebrate my Dad's 50th birthday. We had fabulous party at my parents house, and I even got to catch up with some old High School friends who came to the party. I also attended one of my brother Theo's playoff football games. It was the first football game I was able to attend and it was a blast...they won and Theo ran for over 200 yards!

Brad and Eli drove to Davenport, Iowa to spend some time with Brad's family. It was the first time I was away from Eli for more than a day, but I knew he would get plenty of attention and have fun. Eli went to his first Iowa Hawkeye football game and had a great time!

Reese is finally walking and follows her big brother everywhere. Eli is an energetic and talkative 3 year old. Every time he is upset with me he says "mom, I am not happy with you". It makes me laugh every time! Eli is also at an age where if he sees something he wants in a store or on tv, he asks if he can have it for Christmas. I think there are about 75 things on his list so far.:)

Here are some random pictures from the last few weeks. Enjoy!
