Happy Late Thanksgiving...and a little something more

What a wonderful time of year this is. We just back last night from a Thanksgiving trip to Cauldwell, Idaho where my sister lives. My whole family was there together as well as my brother-in-law's parents. We had a lovely Thanksgiving dinner, a relaxful afternoon, then witnessed the special experience of blessing my newest niece Kayla. Then to top it off enjoyed some delicious pie afterwards. What a great day! It's my favorite meal of the whole year, anyone who knows me well knows I love food, and all my favorites we get to have on Thanksgiving. Daylen had a fun time playing with grandma and grandpa, aunts, and cousins, at least most of the time.

We have a lot to be thankful for in our little family, not only is Daylen the cutest boy we could have asked for, but he will not long be the only bundle of joy in our life. He will get the opportunity this next June of becoming a big brother! We are very excited and are trying to explain it to Daylen, but he doesn't get it. He would get a little jealous when he saw his mommy holding his baby cousin so hopefully he'll grow out of that in the next few months. We just wanted to share our happy news with all our friends!
Here is Daylen and Lily jumping on her trampoline together. He got the hang of it pretty quick!

Daylen developing his artistic talent. He loves to draw or scribble rather with paper and crayons.
We all took pictures by Jamie's Christmas tree before we left Sunday. That was fun trying to take one of the whole family and get all the kids to look at the same time.

What can I say?

I love being a stay at home mom, really, it's just that I don't think other people will find the things I do from day to day all that exciting. One reason I haven't posted a blog for awhile. But today I thought I better do something. So I thought I'd tell you the cute things Daylen has learned or done lately.

*Every morning when Brad leaves for work Daylen says "Bye-Bye Dad!, Bye Dad!" while waving over and over. When Brad closes the door he then runs to the window and pulls at the blinds so he can watch him drive away. Cute!

*He folds his arms and bows his head for prayer, until we start praying, then resumes the position once he hears "Amen."

*He grabs any item, usually a wooden spoon, silverware, or funnel and swings it like a baseball bat while making a clicking noise with his tongue. Homerun Derby here we come!

*He has the biggest smile and cutest laugh ever, and he knows it.

*This afternoon I wanted to calm him down to get ready for his nap so we rocked and sang Primary songs together. His attempts at singing are adorable, it was so fun to cuddle with him again!

These are just a few of the reasons I love being able to stay home with Daylen, he is such a cutie!
