Forgot to mention...

So, I forgot to comment on Koralee's 4 month doctor appt last Friday on 12/5. WE ARE OUT OF THE TRIPLE DIGITS!! She was 26" long (97%) and 15 lb. 6.2 oz (90%). He said she was extremely neurologically advanced in regards to her head and neck control. She has rolled over twice now from front to back, but hasn't done it since.

And another thing, Nevaeh went pee pee in the potty!!! She prompted it and sat down and it started spraying everywhere. I was so shocked because we have literally sat on the potty about 100 times and nothing has ever happened. She looked shocked too and was trying to look between her legs at what was coming out, which didn't help the spraying everywhere. I was so proud of her. She got a sucker. Then today (Friday), she did her same old thing. No pee pee. Hopefully it won't take her long to get used to doing it.

We've had much fun lately...

My best friend stops through every year as she's on her way to Wichita for Thanksgiving and Christmas. My girls just love her so much. Nevaeh is still asking for Becky to this day.

Thanksgiving at Grandma and Grandpa Farwell's house this year was a blast for the entire family, and especially for Nevaeh and Malia. Half the time they just ran off together doing who knows what. We've been waiting so long for them to be at this stage, so it's fun to just sit back and watch them interact together. Once again, Nevaeh's vocabulary vastly expanded after her short visit with Malia. She is talking non-stop now. Even using full sentences.

Before we know it, all four of them will be running around together. We sure did miss our little man Blake. And Koralee should would have enjoyed Brenna's company. It's fun watching her have conversations with the other little baby her age at the babysitter. She talks WAY WAY more than Nevaeh ever did.

5 of the Farwell Grandkids.

Nevaeh sure loves her suckers. Halloween left us with a surplus of Dum-Dums. She has been getting one a day lately, and at this rate she has about a 2 month supply left.

Koralee loves her Grandma Farwell. I think that baby has some Meyer in her.

Who's hiding behind the Christmas tree? Or should I say "Tissmas Tee". We have been talking a lot about Baby Jesus lately. I'm going to do something special for Christmas this year. I have to work Christmas Eve, so will get off Christmas morning and get prepared for the holiday morning. Hoping to make the unwrapping of the presents into a 'find the present' game of some sort.

Bath time is much better now that we got our furnace fixed. Now that we look back, we don't think it has been truly working sine we fired it up this winter. I was trying to ignore the cold air blowing out the vents, contributing it to the temp of my hands. I know it doesn't make sense, but who wants to think about a broken furnace around Christmas time. Then it started getting colder out and we would wake up in a house that was 62 degrees with 3 space heaters going. We called and that morning they did a quick and fairly inexpensive fix. Our house feels so warm and cozy now! Not so much shivering after baths for the girls.

Why does my daughter find it necessary to act grown up already. I don't think I need to elaborate on this picture.

Here's the finished picture of the girls' wall. Very quick fix, and we think it looks nice. We have many left over so we are thinking about either doing the opposite wall to match, or doing some sort of design on the wall. If you have ever looks at Wall Pops ads, you can do the coolest things with just simple circles, squares, or stripes. I'm sure we can figure out something to do. But for now, the stripped wall border is no longer existent.
