Well, I went through and organized all of these, and blogger still didn't upload them in order! I just must be missing something.
This week was a busy one! Last weekend we had some time just to ourselves with nothing planned, which was nice. Elena played "horsey" with Daddy, then wanted to be the horsey for her baby. Cute. Baby dolls do almost everything she does now-one of my favorites has to be that she shows them things and has them touch them-like reading books. She also does a really adorable thing where she tells them goodbye and then comes back and says "missed you!". We videoed it the other night, and she did it 12 times in a row.
She brought me the camera, got Harriet, and said "picture". She wouldn't smile, but she did sort of pose. She's standing very close so she can get to the camera to look at it quickly.
Last Friday we had nothing planned to do and it was raining, so we rented videos and let her choose for the first time. She chose Babe. This was her "seat" for part of the movie. The rest of it she was between us eating popcorn!
Out of order-these are from the Thanksgiving dinner at my parents' house. My grandparents, aunt DeAnn and her husband David, uncle Steve, and our usual crew were all in town this year, which was fun. Leni had a good time having undivided attention for several days. She loves to dress up-these were some galoshes Mimi had in the dress up tent. (And, her Thanksgiving dress)
Our small group had a shower for us last night, which was really nice! It was fun to celebrate Maeve coming. We had chili and Magpies cupcakes-yum! Elena helped open presents, and drug people to try to tell the kitties under the bed to "num-oh", which is "come on". It didn't work.
From Thanksgiving-with uncle Steve.
