She got a baby and a pillow pet and some great art supplies. Charley's little personality is budding. She is EXTREMLYindependent. She likes to pick out her own clothes and won't let me even help her at all. even while I am writing this she is coming over saying "Do buttons" then as soon as I touch her dress she runs away saying "I do it." She is a little chatterbox who repeats everything said. She tries to do everything JJ and Lily do. And she love coloring. she will sit quietly with a marker for 1/2 hour just doodling. I love my little Charley. She is even partially potty training herself. I'm still feeling pretty terrible from this pregnancy. I showed her pullups and that she gets a candy for trying. She gets it about 1 in 5 times she tries.
Why oh why does this have to be so hard? The kids are excited I'm not sure if they are more excited for the new baby, or for mom to stop saying 'no because I feel sick'. But I'm at 12 weeks now so the end is in sight. Pray we will make it at least another month!
Dave's brother Jason and his wife and thier youngest son, James, and Dave's mom and Dad came to visit. Jason and his crew live in Austrailia. So it was my first time meeting them and Dave's first time seeing his bro in 7 years. It was a lot of fun to meet them and hang out with them.
They really don't have Halloween in Austrailia but because Sarah is awesome and she has adopted a lot of American holidays for Jason. They celebrate Thanksgiving and Independance day and Halloween. Everytime we went into a store that had any Halloween stuff Sarah went googly eyed.
So we carved pumkins
Wrestling with Uncle Jason
Building with Grandpa
We went into Downtown Denver and Dave joined us for lunch.
At church- Porbably shouldn't have taken this picture but couldn't resist when Lily and grandpa are taking a nap together.
Sarah had never seen snow! Colorado was nice enough to give her a flurry.
Little James and Charley have birthdays only days apart. So we did a little early celebration with icecream cakes for the adults and cupcakes for the kids. We had a lot of fun listing to Sarah say Carmel Turtle in an American accent me and trying to say it in an Aussie accent.
