We are home for the Holidays! Yeah! After spending the week with us, my Mom helped me fly the kids home on Sunday. Rob will come on Friday...because he has patients and tests this week. So, tonight my sisters were over and all 4 of us were sitting there talking when Robbie had to go to the bathroom. After a minute I heard him saying "I want to show you something" over and over. So I got up to check on him when he came running out of the bathroom with his pants down, but his underwear up. He went up to each of my sisters and pointed at his underwear saying "Here's my spiderman!" He was saying it as if he were saying" Im gonna get you." We were dying of laughter! He has been such a character. He spent time over at his Grandma Liz's last night where he got into flour fights with his uncles. He loves getting to see all his family!

I am trying out a new diet...after I got my TONSILS out on Friday! It is pretty painful, so I have been laying in bed for the last couple days as Rob has turned into Mr. Mom. Luckily, my Mom flies in today to help! It is hard on the kids not to have a "whole" mom. Elle is wondering why I cant really hold her, and Robbie is wondering why I cant really talk! He cuddled up to me on the couch yesterday and said "Mom, you are my Big girl." It was really cute! I am trying to take extra precautions to get well, because I am flying home to Utah before the 2 week check up mark...so at 1 week I am going to have to be well!

We used oilcloth tablecloths for spills.
Luckily, when I buy a serving dish...my 2 friend do too...so we always have 3. What are we going to do next year in 3 different states!
Chocolate fountains are fun, but mine never works exactly how it looks in the pictures! I always use the traditional Gruyere and Emmentaler cheese...Rob's favorite is cheddar, so I do that one too.

I love having Thanksgiving at my house, because it is pretty much the only time of year that I get excited to cook. I try to follow all the advice from Martha and WS...and for weeks in advance, I prepare a little each day. Of course I dont have pictures of the actual evening...but I did take a couple of the preparation!
It was fun to have kids old enough to enjoy it this year!
I wish I had pictures of the food table...that was a vision!

Obsessed with backscratches...I think he picked it up at the beach, because he always needs lotion and a blanket and his shirt has to be off! He is always asking Tia or Addie if they will give him a backscratch. Should I be worried?
Tonight after trying to convince him to wear pajamas after he insisted on wearing levis to bed, I heard him in the bathroom. When I went up there, he showed me what a big helper he was...rolling the toilet paper on to the roll-holder! Well, thats one way to get it on there!
Rob walking in on him like this the other day! What? First of all...I did not put him it that outfit. Is he a forest ranger?
As for playgroup, it was at my house last week and we were on the letter "F" for Friends, Funny Faces and Feathers.

I finally got to see Kelly live (Regis had the day off) The show was great with Marissa Tomae, Big Papi, Damian Fayhe, the costar to christina apple gate in Samantha Who...and some funny band named baby face or something. Brooke and I got up at around 5:30 to wait in the standbye line!
Thomas and Robbie could be brothers with their coloring and matching pjs! Their dads are really cute with them as you can see!

My friend gave me the idea of having the Halloween Witch come on Halloween night and take all of the candy and leave a toy. So, this year, in order to save my camera...the Halloween witch brought Robbie the Fisher Price Digital. We knew we had to get him a real one because the fun of using mine, is seeing the pictures after he takes them. So, this weekend he got to try it out in New York. When he wasnt taking pictures of his feet and the ground...the pictures were pretty good!

Cruella and Robbie the doggie
Hillbilly sox fan and baby Elle the Kitty. Rob made these hillbilly teeth in the dental lab. When he got home and tried to kiss me...I thought that they were actual teeth that he had extracted and I nearly threw up. He went along with it and said "I totally sanitized them!" Then he told me the that he had made them out of composite...silly me!
Robbie was not totally in to wearing his costume! He kept taking the hat off and asking me to take off the body. Well, after the monsoon at the Lagoon the next day...I dont know if he will be able to wear it again anyway!
