After Thanksgiving, we put up our tree. Jacob has SOOOO many ornaments (yeah...I contributed zero to our collection when we got married. He, on the other hand, had several boxes) that I can do a color theme each year, and put up ornaments that match the color of choice. This year we did gold with burgundy and browns. It turned out beautifully, but it seems that I never took a picture of the finished product...we're in Wyoming for the holidays, so I can't take one now to show you. Oh well. Take my word for it: it's beautiful (if I do say so myself).

And of course, I had to share some pictures of my beautiful babies.

Miya loves to feed Emi (I should post another video of that), but Miya got a kick out of giving Emi something that was a little out of the ordinary to see her reaction...over and over again. Emi just kept going for it! Fun.

10 months - working on walking

This video is from nearly a month ago, but I didn't get around to posting it....obviously. Emi is getting quite good at her push toys, and will even stand up and balance without holding on to anything (quite the contrast to Miya, who didn't even want to crawl until she was 11 months!). She's definitely a busy-body these days!

We spent our Thanksgiving with Jacob's family up in Green Bay. We had a wonderful time, ate lots of good food, and thoroughly enjoyed our little family vacation.

Miya made some turkeys out of apples, marshmallows, olives, and dried cranberries. Gobble, gobble!
And then grandma helped her make some homemade bird feeders out of pinecones, peanut butter, and birdseed. I had a good laugh when Miya would forget that the birsdeed wasn't edible, and she would lick her fingers to try and eat the peanut butter(this happened several times, and the surprised then disgusted look on her face got better each time)!
