Thomas, Elmo, and the Rockettes


Pin the number on Thomas

Spinning, spinning, spinning

Ethan, Sammy & Sir Tophamm Hat

Wow have we had a busy but fun week! It started last Saturday. We went to Chelsea to meet Sammy, Noelle, Lane & Karen. The local library there had a day with Thomas. Lane and Steve took Noelle & Mia, while Karen & Amy took the boys to the event. When we walked in the library Ethan & Sammy were given conductor hats and tickets to go to the different stations. We went around the library to stations making crafts and playing games. At the end we got to take a train ride outside. We should have known we were in for some ride when the train that showed up was pink and the driver looked a little crazy. We pulled away from the library and nearly missed crashing into a cement flower pot. The ride continued to get more interesting. It was cold and raining / sleeting. When we were almost back to the library the driver wanted to do some figure 8's in the parking lot. Instead of a figure 8 our train ride ended by crashing into a car. No one got hurt...but boy was it an interesting ride!

Sunday after church we went to see Elmo. Ethan and Mia were mesmerized with the show. Of course Mia's favorites were Elmo & Ernie. Ethan liked Big Bird. Amy had hit the dollar section at Target before we went and found $1 Elmo books so we didn't have to buy $20.00 books there:)

Last night Amy & her parents took Ethan to see the Rockettes Christmas Spectacular. WOW, WOW, WOW!!! The show was something else!!! It is all new for this year and can't compare to shows that we've seen in the past. They have new numbers but kept some of our favorites. Ethan loved the wooden soldier routine. Our favorite part was the ending where they do a live nativity scene while reading the Christmas story. If you have a chance to see the production this year go see it. You won't be sorry! We plan on taking the whole family next year, we think Mia will be ready then:)

Adios Warm Weather

These were pictures from one of our walks in September. I just never got around to posting them. (I am a blog slacker...I know) Ethan finally has mastered riding his bike and can pedal on his own. He would lead our parade around the neighborhood. Mia would hang a purse on her stroller to pick up "treasures" along the way. I am afraid that the cold weather is here to stay and we will have to wait until spring to take another walk. Oh well....we'll have fun in the snow in the meantime:)

Cake as sweet as Noelle

These were taken when we first met Noelle in September. What can we say...we had a SWEET day and met a sweet girl! Congrats Lane & Karen, welcome home Noelle! (Yes Miss Noelle is having some coffee with her cake:)
