Happy Thanksgiving!!

Hope everyone is enjoying the day with your families. We are getting ready to eat Turkey dinner, yummy! My grandmother sent this beautiful dress to Mickey so I thought I would share with everyone a picture of my very precious little girl.
I am so thankful to have the day with my husband and my little girl. God has truly blessed me.

Fish Babies

It has been a couple of months since we got our fish tank up and running. I have always liked fish and they have been a great enjoyment to Mickey. She loves to go and watch them, point at the them and say "Pish, pish".

Jeff and I were talking the other day about not knowing if we have male or female fish. I have personally never thought about the gender of fish. I also never thought that we could potentially have baby fish.

So I am sitting there looking at the fish tank after I feed them and guess what?! We have baby fish. 5 baby fish to be exact. The pet store told us that they probably won't survive. But so far they are doing great. I have never seen something so tiny before. They are really cute. I would show you a picture just don't think that I could get a picture of them.

Now Mickey says "Pish, Baby Pish". How cute is that??

Just like Uncle Dave

Mickey is getting to that age where she has her own opinions on what she wears. I am told that she is a lot like my brother Dave, who from about 2 would only wear what he liked nothing else. When we were kids he would look at me and ask "are you sure you are wearing THAT?" I hope that Mickey won't go to far that direction.

If we put on her Dora pj's we will see her in the top the next day, just refuses to take it off. The other day, I put on some clothes she took them right off. So I asked her to find some clothes to wear so we can go swing. She found her summer dress and I added the sweats and she picked out the shoes. She looks rather cute doesn't she???

Oh, and yesterday I was going to put on this really cute skirt and top. Ugh, she would have nothing to do with it. She cried and cried and pulled at her shirt until we took it off. Once her shirt was off she promptly took off her skirt. Maybe she is heading towards the direction of Uncle Dave???

Swimming in November??

Monday Jeff had an unexpected day off so Mikaylin and Daddy went swimming. They are both water bugs. Mickey is getting rather comfortable in the water. She even went under water a few times on her own. Since we have an indoor pool, I think that daddy and Mickey will go back to the pool.

What does Momma say....

Jeff sent me a youtube video today. Click here to see it... It had me laughing because I can so relate!

I can totally hear Mickey say "no,no,no". I found her with her best friend "Naynay" the other day, saying "no, no, no" with her finger pointed at her. Sandy gets into the most trouble because she sometimes forgets to listen. Mickey is just imitating me I suppose. :)

Ee air aaa & Naynay

Mickey just loves her buddies Ee air aaa (Sierra) and Naynay (Sandy). She spends a lot of her day playing with them and interacting with them or trying to sleep on them.

Every night before bedtime we do story time. This is one of her favorite times of the day. The other night the dogs were in to join us for this special time. We were reading and then all of a sudden Mickey takes her favorite books (of the night) and heads towards Sierra. She opens her books and shows them to Sierra and begins pointing to the different things on the page and naming them for Sierra. I suppose that this time she was reading to Sierra since before she has wanted to Sierra and Sierra just gives her a blank look.

Also a part of our nighttime routine, Daddy and Mickey go outside to say goodnight to the moon and the stars. Lately Mickey has been calling for "Ee air aa, Naynay" to say "bye, bye". I am so thankful that she has these two special four legged friends in her life.

Dress Up Fun!

Mickey got dressed up as a monkey a couple of times this past week. She wasn't so sure she wanted to put on the monkey costume. But she did and I think that she had a blast!The first place we went to was at our local rec center. This is where Mickey got the most perfect treat. Amazing it wasn't a piece or chocolate. It was a pony ride. A few weeks ago, we tried to get her to ride one of those mechanical ponies, no go. But this night it was the real deal. She thought about it once or twice and then went for it. She liked it so much we did it a second time.

Then we got dressed up and went to her music class. All the kiddos got in on the treat! She didn't stay long in her costume since it was a little hot to run around and dance in.

Then we went to was the Animal Ball. They had stuff to make instruments to take home, she got to make ears to wear and a lady drew her picture in a face of a lion. It turned out amazing! Mickey even got to meet her friendly librarian at the Ball, where she got to see a puppet or two.
The last place we went was a church function. There Mickey got to play with bubbles and make her own cookie! What a treat. She also played a few games and took home candy (that daddy and I will probably eat!).

Oh, we also went trick or treating at our neighbor ladies house. That was fun.

So all in all we had a good time. Hope you enjoyed the pictures!
