Day 335 Happy Birthday to Bobbi and Billi

Monday, November 30th, 2009

Tuesday, December 1 – Happy Birthday to my twins, Bobbi and Billi. I just had to share a couple of my favorite photos of you two when you were little. These were scanned from old polaroid photos. I believe they are 4 months in the first photo and 10 months in the 2nd. I could be off a bit though. Bobbi was walking at 8 months, so I think I am close on the 2nd one. Can you guess which girl is which?  Watching Tiffany with her twins brings back so many memories. You two were so cute!! You have grown into such beautiful women and are fantastic mothers too. I hope your birthday is a wonderful one!!

Day 334 Look What I Can Do

Sunday, November 29th, 2009

Monday, November 30 – This is the last day of November. Wow, just one more month of 2009 photos. Tomorrow is Bobbi and Billi’s birthdays too.  I took these of Gage today at Lily’s birthday party. He loves to have things, like hats, on his head, so Becca decided to try blocks. Remember, he was the one that liked the Halloween wigs. What a cute little character!

Day 333 – I’m Officially A Toddler Now

Saturday, November 28th, 2009

Sunday, November 29 – Here are some shots of the birthday girl on her actual birthday. We are going up to Fort Benton for a Pizza Party in Lily’s honor. She is going to have fun playing with her cousin’s. I have the funniest story about Lily and her special attachment to Brynn. She climbing on her 7 year old cousin’s lap as soon as she saw her on her birthday and from then on she would not leave her side. No one else was good enough. She would even cry if anyone else would try to touch her. Brynn was her special friend for the day. It was so darned cute. Brooke and Emma spent the night last night and then Brooke, Brynn and Chase spent the afternoon out here too. Chase and Grandpa had lots of fun discussing and looking over the airplane. Brooke even helped me give a heifer a shot. Brynn was my little helper fixing waffles and bacon for supper. It was a great day.

Day 332 My Grandma’s Bathtub Is The Best

Saturday, November 28th, 2009

Saturday, November 28 – Here are some more shots from Tristan’s bathrub experience. He was so darned cute. I finally had to let the water out to get him to come out. It was pretty steamy in there, so the photos look almost smokey.  We are heading to Dante’s for lunch today in celebration of Bobbi and Billi’s birthday this next week courtesy of Grandma Martha. Brooke and Becca are sleeping in my living room right now after a popcorn/movie sleepover. Walter and I helped Billi move things up to their cabin yesterday. They even have a ’tilt’ house like the one in Kalispell that the former owner built for his grandkids. I still don’t get how you make something like that. Chase tried to explain it to me; it is all an optical illusion. Very neat though!

Day 331 – Oh, That Tickles!!

Friday, November 27th, 2009

Friday, November 27 – Tristan loves my big jetted tub. He can swim and splash and thoroughly enjoy the bubbles. He just giggled and giggled when I put the jets on. He went home with the remaining pumpkin champagne cake from Lily’s birthday last night. He ate two huge pieces of it and loved it. I guess I didn’t think a 4 year old would like pumpkin that much. The local bakery does pumpkin for the holidays, in addition to their regular white and chocolate. All are really yummy and topped with whipped cream and chocolate curls.

Day 330 Happy Thanksgiving

Thursday, November 26th, 2009

Thursday, November 26 – Happy Thanksgiving to all. This was the sunrise this morning as I headed out to Fort Benton to pick up the kiddos for the day. What a glorious start to a wonderful holiday. I have to say oops for a mistake I made yesterday. Lily’s birthday is actually today. She was born the day before Thanksgiving last year, but that date is Thanksgiving this year. Sorry Lily.

Day 329 Happy Birthday, Lily Jade!!

Tuesday, November 24th, 2009

Wednesday, November 25 – Happy 1st Birthday to Lily Jade! I am posting this a day early so that everyone knows it is your birthday ahead of time. It is hard to believe that a whole year has past since you were born. I remember Thanksgiving dinner at your house last year when you had just come home from the hospital. You were just a day old and your mom was already up cooking a meal. She is really something!! And so are you!! Enjoy your day, Lily! I took these photos this last week when I was babysitting. Kristie showed me that Lily actually has some curl in her hair when it is wet. Maybe she is going to luck out and have Nick and Tristan hair. Make sure to click on the photos to enlarge them.

Day 328 Beautiful Ending

Monday, November 23rd, 2009

Tuesday, November 24 – This was the sunset tonight. The wind died down enough for me to finally get out and get some shots. It is supposed to blow tonight up to 50 mph though. We have been having our fair share of windy weather lately. I am taking Mom to the MD tomorrow and picking up our turkey for Thanksgiving.

Day 327 Mr. Bucket Head

Monday, November 23rd, 2009

Monday, November 23 – Here is how Tristan wanted his photo taken; so Grandma cooperated. Mr. Bucket Head is pretty goofy. He went back home yesterday to meet his daddy at the airport. I am excited to hear about all Nick did in Hong Kong. I know that his family sure missed him.

Sunday, November 22 – These were shot of the century old cottonwood trees down at the barn. There were just a few of the leaves still hanging on. I used my new Canon G11.
