Happy Thanksgiving!

This year we spent Thanksgiving with Dan's family at Lake Oconnee. Dan caught up on his sleep and went back to Athens to watch the Georgia vs Georgia Tech football game. Erin enjoyed a little less housework! Emma loved playing with her cousins. During one of her naps the kids were playing right outside her window. She was standing at the window watching them have fun. I told her to try to sleep for 30 min, if she was still awake she could get up and play. Luckily she fell asleep! Georgia loved having so many people to hold her, but she didn't enjoy eating solid food without sitting in a high chair. Mommy's lap is just too distracting!

The Little Princess

Emma loves to dress up like a princess. The more accessories the better!
Time for makeup...

Check it in the mirror...

Play dough

Emma loves play dough! To get 30 minutes of peace, I let her play by herself at the kitchen table. It is worth 5 minutes of cleaning up the mess for clean dishes!

My friend, Christie, and I took our girls to Babyland. We probably spent an hour there plus and hour drive each way. Lets just say I am glad it was free admission. Emma had a great time, so we will go again in another year or so! Georgia was with us, but I didn't take any pictures of her because I was holding her. Poor kid!
Emma loves Santa this year! Hooray!
Emma with Valerie and all of their friends!
The pricey handmade newborns!

There were so many dolls Emma was running around in circles to play with them all.

Emma and Valerie with their good behavior reward suckers! Yes, it was freezing cold that day and my daughter is not wearing a coat. In my defence, I was already carrying Georgia and a 30 pound diaper bag. Who would want to add a coat to that baggage?

Georgia Kentucky Game

In November, Dan and I went with some friends to the Kentucky game. We left early in the morning on Saturday and drove to Lexington for the game. Afterwards we ate at Merrick Inn. The food was great!

At the game

Robyn and Steve ~ our traveling buddies
The next day we visited Keeneland race track before heading home. Dan and I drove to Louiville the last time we came up for the Kentucky game to visit Churchill Downs. I like to read Dick Francis books and it is the only American race track I am familiar with and since it is the site of the Kentucky Derby we both wanted to see it. What a disapointment! It is old and dirty. Keeneland is what race tracks should look like. Beautiful.

Georgia is eating solids

Georgia, like her sister, is not too sure that eating solids is all it is cracked up to be. We started with bananas last week and she would have none of it. After the four day wait, I decided to go with something blander...rice cereal. She even swallowed some of it! Now the years of messing eating begin!
