A few fun quotes!

Molly loves to sing...a lot. She sings all day long.

She loves to sing, "I am a child of God" but instead of singing "has given me an earthly home" she sings, "has given me a dirty home"

Now today she started singing, 'Follow the Prophet, follow the prophet, follow the prophet, don't say a word."

Christmas Tree

While we were in Northern California we got to go help pick out a tree and decorate it.
Ellie and Molly ready to go!

We let the girls decorate the tree and Ellie was so good about hanging ornaments in lots of different places.

Molly on the other hand put all of the ornaments on the same branch.
She was so proud of herself!
Nathan is hanging this cluster of tiny apples that his mom keeps to remind her of the time...
...he put all of the apples on the same branch!

I guess the apple really doesn't fall far from the tree!

For Thanksgiving day we were in Northern California with Nathan's parents and sister and brother in law. We actually went out to a restaurant and then back home for pie and cake. It was a really relaxing day and we had a great time.

Molly got in lots of Tibu time including dancing to Christmas music.
Can you tell by her face how much she loves him? I mean she really, really loves him!

Tibu recently went on a scuba diving trip and decided to get the girls a coral reef toy.
It's an adorable toy with six stuffed sea creatures to swim through the reef.
As always she was read to a lot by Tibu and Grana. She's a lucky little girl.

The local radio station was offering tickets to Legoland in exchange for toys, so we took advantage of their offer. Everitt, Belinda, Frances and Madeline all came down to go with us.

It was pouring rain the day we decided to go, but we went anyway.
We were not sure of the height requirement on this ride so Nathan stood in line in case a kid needed him to go on with them. Madeline went with Everitt and Frances and Liam were allowed to go together so Nathan went by himself. He really made the best of this ride meant for little kids!

At one point is was raining so hard we all sought cover, but not Madeline. She was out there playing in the water. She was soaked, but it was very entertaining watching her.

Molly really wanted to go on this ride which was not very scary at all. She had already been on a roller coaster.
Now before you start feeling bad for her because her parents made her go on a scary ride she didn't want to go on, you must know that these crocodile tears were because she didn't want to put on the seat belt.
She zonked out.

It was a lot of fun even with all of the rain. We had a great time spending the day with Everitt and Belinda and their kids. It happened to be Everitt's birthday that same day. I couldn't be happier to have a brother like Everitt. He is an amazing man and I am lucky to have him in my life!

A Better Look

Here is a little better look at Molly's costume. This is a couple days before Halloween when her costume arrived in the mail. Molly's Grana did a great job making this costume.

She was testing out the twirl factor!

Happy Halloween!

Dorothy and Toto on there way to trunk or treat!

Dorothy was a little shy throughout the night. I think it might have been a little overwhelming for her, but we had a good time!

We went to this great toddler museum in Berkeley. Molly spent the majority of her time at this "car wash". She really loved it. She was allowed to get water all over herself and the floor and no one told her to be careful!

Molly and Ellie in the space shuttle with a ton of buttons they were encouraged to push! What a breath of fresh air to be allowed to push everything!

This was my favorite part. They could just paint all over this wall. They could mix colors and get dirty. The best part was the paint really did come off easily!

Good Friends!

One of my favorite things about this trip was seeing Ellie and Molly together. They really enjoyed eachother and had a good time.

They held hands like this until their arms went numb!

They kept hugging each other so much that they would topple over. Even when they would fall, they would just laugh and get up and do it again!

Off to the farm with Tibu!

Tibu took Molly and Ellie-Jane to a farm and the girls had a blast. They were able to run and touch animals and pick corn and just have fun!

Molly REALLY wanted this hen. These poor chickens would hide behind all the adults legs. You could tell they were used to kids chasing them.
