Elias James is 15 months old! Where does the time go?? Here are his 15 month stats -
Height: 31 1/2 inches (50th percentile)
Weight: 23 lb. 12 oz. (25th-50th percentile)
Head: 49 (97th percentile)
That's right folks! My little man is short and skinny!! Just carries it all in his cheeks :)

This was Addie at 15 months -- she was 5 inches taller and 3 pounds heavier! Crazy!!

Thanksgiving week was a blast! We did lots of things and the week actually went slow (which was a good thing!) Sledding...

Mall of America

Turkey day!

And today Brandt starts his new job! Exciting! We loved having him home for a week. Now we'll adjust back into a normal routine :) Happy Monday!

Yes, we decorated for Christmas the day BEFORE Thanksgiving!! And the kids had a blast :) Tomorrow we celebrate 'Turkey Day' with the Sorbels and Friday with my family. Loving having Brandt home this week. I've had some good alone time too. The kids are loving their daddy. It's great!

Today was one of those days!! Kids were CRAZY! And we were ready for 7:30 PM to arrive :) Is that horrible to say?! Brandt has this week off before starting his new job next week, so we have a couple fun outings planned. Mall of America tomorrow. Looking forward to the week ahead!

Life is good! So thankful for my kids and my husband :)

A couple Addie quotes for your enjoyment--
"Can I tell you something Mom? When you share popcorn with me, I don't get any popcorn."

"Tuck me in nice and snuggle!"

"Mama, I want Eli to go back in your tummy."

I dropped her off at preschool last week and said, "Addie, give me a kiss before you go in." She replied, "No Mom!" So, I of course planted one on her and she then looked up at her teacher and said (in a sassy voice), "My mom is so silly."
I'm not ready to give up those kisses yet!!!!

Finally, yesterday in the car we were talking about belly buttons. Addie said, "That's where Eli came out of your tummy, right Mom?" I took a deep breath and replied, "No, Addie. Babies come out of your butt." :) She started giggling, and asked, "Did I come out of your butt too?" I of course said, "Yes, Addie." She giggled again, and then said, "That is hard to understand, Mom." I left it at that!

Best Birthday EVER! Date night with my hubby last night, breakfast at Denny's today, trip to Target (by myself!!), dinner with my family, and the best news ... Brandt got a new job! At the end of the month, B will be working at Best Buy Corporate Headquarters. The job seems perfect for him. The Lord had a plan!! We are feeling blessed and excited for his new opportunity. Best part-- no travel :) I may have to start cooking real dinners at night ;)

My memory card on my camera failed after taking Halloween pics, but my mom had a few! I may dress the kids up again and snap a few more -- for the scrapbook, of course :) We had a blast trick-or-treating! Grammy and Grandpa came dressed up as well!! Both kids were exhausted and slept in til after 8:00 this morning.
Brandt is in NY again this week. Missing him today. That's about it! Have a great week ya'll :)
