Day 324 to 337 (Minus a few!)

I finally have my camera back!  I didn't know I would miss it so much.  I guess this Project 365 has made it become a part of me!  So I am making up for 2 weeks and filling in with some pictures taken after the actual day  - they are noted with an * - cause you know, I'm just like that.  Enjoy!

Day 324, Sunday, November 21st
I really can't believe I didn't take a picture!  My sister and her family arrived on Saturday, L made it home from his overnight camp (he had a blast and wasn't in the house 5 minutes before he asked to go back to my mom's to see his cousins!) and we had a Thanksgiving feast at small group.  Oh yeah, I didn't take a picture, because I have this video!  Sorry for the poor quality and baby squealing in the background!

Day 325, Monday, November 22nd
M lost his first tooth!  It had been loose for quite a while, apparently he is not much of a tooth wiggler.  He came home from Nana's with it in a plastic bag - he had gotten her to take it out for him!  Thanks Nana!  What a cutie!

Day 326, Tuesday, November 23rd
Again - no picture and I did have my camera!

Day 327, Wednesday, November 24th
Breakfast with my sister and then to United Art and Education!  What a wonderful time!

Day 328, Thursday, November 25th
Happy Thanksgiving!  Grandpa Gorbics showing us his antique coffee grinder.  

Day 329, Friday, November 26th*
An early Christmas present from Grandma Gorbics.  A beautiful Advent Calendar!  Thanks Debbie!  You are one talented woman and we have already enjoyed using this!

Day 330 & 331, Saturday & Sunday, November 27th & 28th*
Yes, it actually did take us 2 days to decorate our Christmas tree!  We discovered when we put it up on Saturday, that we needed more lights . . . and you can't hang any ornaments on before the lights are on . . . it was very hard for M to wait!  This is the earliest we have ever put up our Christmas tree - let's hope it survives until Christmas!

Day 332, Monday, November 29th*
I was very sad we didn't have the camera for this event - Turtle Racing at Cub Scouts!  L brought home a piece of wood with a pattern that he and Dad had to cut out.  He then got to personalize it - Super Turtle!  The whole in his head is where the string went through that was pulled to make him "walk".  He did have 2 eyeballs before the race!

Day 333, 334, 335, Tuesday - Thursday, November 30 - December 2nd
No pictures :(   Not starting the last month of Project 365 very well!

Day 336, Friday, December 3rd
I have my camera back!  Thanks Grandma and Grandpa Gorbics for dropping it by! 
Yeah - and this is all I took a picture of - J being silly!  I'm sure I'll use it to embarrass him sometime in the future!

Day 337, Saturday, December 4th
M's turn for the Advent Calendar.  One thing I like about this one is that Baby Jesus stays on the whole time - that means no one fighting over who gets to put him on this year and me not being able to recall whose turn it is!

Taking pictures can be quite addicting! Glad you have the comfort of your camera again! ;) I enjoyed listening to Alana sing Ave Maria! It's one of my favorites and she did a beautiful job of singing and playing it! I didn't get to see them at church the day they were there! Bummer. Enjoy your week!

we did miss you last week!!!! but it looks like they have been very full and fun!!

I love to pull teeth by the way!! when we lived in Granger, all the neighborhood kids would come to me to pull their teeth!!

The Bug said...

That's a beautiful advent calendar!

But no pictures of baby girl :( Heh.

Kim said...

Really enjoyed your photos! My fav is the "blackmail" photo of J :) But they're all great. What a fun and busy couple of weeks you've had!

I love missing teeth, especially when the two front teeth are missing!

Bob said...

Was missing you guys already! I enjoyed the post. You and C look like breakfast was fun.

Cecilia said...

Miss you guys. Glad I got to be there when Micah lost his tooth, he was so cute about it. I have pulled teeth, but it really creeps me out - so much better when they do it themselves or find someone else! I guess the video will have to serve as Alana's recital, as it got canceled at the last minute. Love decorating for Christmas. Every year I am going to get an advent calendar... Love you guys!

Tori said...

I can only imagine how happy you are to have your camera back!
The turtle race sounds fun.
Hooray for a lost tooth!!
Your tree looks great. What does N think of it?
Have a super week!

I swear we have that same light dilemma EVERY year!!! You'd think by now we would have learned to take a trip to the store BEFORE we go get the tree. Ugh. (Especially 'cause the kids don't understand why we can't get it all the way decorated N-O-W.)

What a lovely advent calendar. There are so many wonderful activities to do as a family during this time of year. I find it so hard, though, to get them in at night (when I really want to do them) because of all the late nights we end up having with Christmas gatherings, dinners, concerts, etc. Maybe when we move to the country we'll just never go to anything... :) we can stay home and really enjoy all the Christmasness.
