Little steps

We have steps! Little steps that take him from the edge of the table to my knee, from one end of the couch to the other. He is also clapping and playing peek-a-boo with himself (I've actually witnessed him doing this when noone else is around!). He is very sweet and cautious. We are all enjoying having a much more active and mobile little fella in the house :)

Thanksgiving 2005

Thanksgiving at Mary and Bob Lees was a great success this year. We had a fine dinner with too much food, lots of fun company, and everyone was in their finest form. It was wonderful sharing the meal with our newest member, Orin Clarence, who ate with gusto and was very verbal, fitting right in with the crowd! Rebecca showed everyone some of her new dance moves, Sarane looked wonderful, healthy, and was full of prezzies for the babes. Again. I must admit, though, that she has toned it down to one each, which they both loved opening and enjoying. Well, ok, Beca loved opening both and enjoys them both HEHE HAHA! Beca loves going to Grandma and Poppy's and being in New York City. And Ori didn't punish his old Ma too much by not sleeping at all - one night he did sleep well, but the second night was pretty rough. No pictures of that, please! All in all a lovely evening and a great weekend!
Jerry carved the turkey. Ori enjoyed it!

My favorite pictures

A Life Reborin

Just my two favorite pictures of my children... for pity's sake, can't a mama brag just a LITTLE!?

Hallowe'en 2005

Ori's first hallowe'en - he was baby Harry Potter. What a cutie!!! a

He loved going door to door, loved the leaves, loved the candy wrappers! Beca was Hermione and had a great time trick or treating with Natalie again this year. Jerry made an impressive Sumo dude, and I enjoyed being Minerva McGonagall. The weather was amazing, the colors fabulous, the neighbors warm and giving and it was overall a wonderful Hallowe'en this year. Orin REALLY loved playing with all the loot!

Jerry turned 54 on the 30th, and had a very nice dinner here with my parents in attendence. It was a nice gathering. He seems older...we are going to try some new approaches to keeping healthy and clean. I am going to get him an air cleaner for chrismakwanznakuh, to keep the air in the house cleaner from dust. Also a mattress cover that will keep out mites and stuff. I'm really wanting to get him onto some vitamins (just something to strengthen his immune system while we get the laundry/dish/air stuff worked on) but he is not very reliable about taking them. sigh. Well, hopefully he'll be feeling good when he gets back from Rochester, where he's planting some new trees and presenting awards to citizens who have really contributed a lot to the pest management world. It would be awesome to have him healthy for a while :-)
