The first big snowfall of the year here happened the next day and Jane loved to look at it, but was very scared to touch it or step in it. We got her a big fluffy snow suit (she reminds us of that poor kid on Christmas Story who can't put his arms down).
th and she finally weighs 20 lbs!!! (too bad all the front facing car seats now say kids have to be 22 lbs. . . maybe by Christmas) She is talking so much more now and can say around 25-30 words (my favorite of which is "cool")
Thanksgiving was wonderful this year. We were able to spend it with Trent's entire family (immediate family, that is) and it was so fun having so many people around and kids scattered everywhere. Trent got to go shooting with the Bassett boys in the morning and they all had a great time. I got to scan ads for good Black Friday deals and smell the turkey cooking. mmmmm Jane loved playing with the dogs and her cousins and was so tired by the time we left she didn't even make it to the freeway before crashing. She was not so into turkey dinner but, to her great fortune, the other cousins left their half eaten pie slices on the table when they went to play, and Jane dug in! She was a little pie thief! And Grandpa Bassett egged her on by serving her whipping cream from the can right into her little mouth. That girl was in heaven!
Trent went shopping for us on Black Friday and got some good deals. I'm so glad that he's brave enough to go, because I'm sure not! Later that day we got our apartment all decked out for Christmas. . . now all we need is a tree!
We hope you all had a wonderful November. Here's looking forward to a snowy December :)
