Central Park with Grandpa Bob

My little Angie monkey likes to climb.
I love having Grandpa Bob come to visit for the day.  He helps me a ton and the kids love it too!
Angie is so big she is standing on the train like she owns it.
We still have sunny days here in CA in December and need our shades.
I love when they play nice together.
They sure do love each other.
Danny is such a happy baby!
Always willing to give a smile.
In this video the suspense is intense as Danny keeps trying to get the remote.  The remote was already destroyed earlier by big sister putting it in her mouth so it is now a toy.  He is also super cute dishing out raspberries.

Breakfast with Santa, Crawling Practice and Follow the Star

We started the day at a church activity Breakfast with Santa.  Angie was terrified of Santa and Danny was just curious what was going on.
When we got home Danny practiced getting ready for crawling.
In the evening Danny got to play the part of Baby Jesus in the live nativity play Follow the Star.  I am so happy that both of my children have had this chance.
During the first performance Danny cried the entire time because he was so tired.  I kind of felt bad for the young woman playing Mary trying to calm poor little Danny.

The second performance was with our Bishop's daughter as Mary and Danny slept during the entire performance.
I am deeply grateful for this experience and especially for my Savior's birth, life, death and resurrection.

Cool Baby Santa

Danny has been working on his floor exercises.
He has been doing a great job and can now get up on all fours.

Here he is in action.
It is fun to dress him up.  He looks pretty cute and doesn't know any better so I can get away with it.

Christmas Tree Goes Up 2011

It was officially legal to put up the Christmas tree so we got to work.  Angie was a great little helper.
A couple of my favorite ornaments.  Angie and Danny's hands from when they were babies.  Angie is demonstrating how much she has grown in the last three years.  They really grow too fast!
Danny supervised from the highchair.  He loved looking at all the lights and decorations.  Excited for the Christmas Season approaching.

Family Pictures 2011

My wonderful friend  Jen took our family pictures for Christmas cards.  She was so incredibly patient with Angie who wanted nothing to do with the camera and insisted on keeping her favorite stuffed animal Momma George with her in the pictures.

Thanksgiving 2011

This year for Thanksgiving I had a little helper.  I think she liked playing with the gloves more than anything. 
This year I cooked the turkey in champagne.  It turned out okay, not the best but not the worst.
We were happy to host thanksgiving this year.  Angie and Danny were taking a nap at dinnertime so we started dinner kid free.
We had family from both sides with us to celebrate the holiday.
Once Danny woke up there were lots of volunteers to hold him.  First up was Grandma Yumiko.
Then Grandpa Bob had fun with an arm full of grandbabies.
Grandma Kris gives Danny some attention.
Grandpa Bob knows how to get the smiles out of Danny.
Love it!
It was tricky but we caught Angie unaware of the aimed camera.  Such a cute girl!

Danny enjoyed trying to eat everything in his exersaucer.  It was a great day with much to be thankful for.

Nap time Duo

At nap time we have a routine of reading stories and then singing primary songs.  Angie loves her brother Danny.  She tries to dress like him and loves having him in her bed during story and song time.  Then she is left to go to sleep in her bed while Mommy takes Danny to his room, nurses him and puts him down for nap.  Mommy is very happy that their nap times can go together!

Adventures in Eating Colors

Danny is starting to branch out in his food options and eating orange foods now.
He likes the orange food options.

Not a huge fan of the green options at this time.
Love the facial expressions!

Angie at the Dentist

Angie is such a trooper at the dentist.  It helps that her friend Max's Dad is her dentist.  No cavities but requests to clean the back teeth a little more thoroughly with brushing.  Way to go Angie!
