Early Christmas

We leave (God willing) for FL on Christmas Eve. And next weekend is Natalie’s bday. So we celebrated early today. Thanks Grandma and Aunt Becky for the presents! We miss everyone.
Natalie loved the snow globe and cozy slippers.   Elliott loved a dragon pod Maximus and lego set. Conor loved everything with wheels – a blue monster truck and bus with flashing lights. They were excited about a bit of cash too!!

French silk pie

Natalie chose two birthday pies. We made the first one this weekend. French silk! Fun and delicious (and time consuming – good thing I cheated and bought the crust).  Recipe fr Sally’s baking addiction.

Happy Halloween

The little smug skeleton just threw his “dinner” of goldfish on the floor.  Natalie was a ghost (a beautiful one)!

Training time

Big bro “training” little bro.
to be honest this trading set up is a little complex for Conor and he is getting frustrated the trains don’t stick together. He loves the hills. 
last pic is as Elliott said once in a lifetime. Conor was watching a wheels on the bus video after his hands were cold outside and he wouldn’t stop crying.  Which is just like Natalie at age 1/2. Oh no. What did I get myself into?!?

Yum. Brownies

Conor loves to do the dishes. His sis snuck him some brownie dough.

First dentist appointment

Conor watched his big either with great interest at the dentists office and did well himself.
I also cut off 9 inches of quarantine hair.


And we went on a fun 3 mile hike to some ruins on Mt Tom  the ruins are from days when there was a high end hotel on the Mountain, back in Holyoke’s heyday.
Finally Kaitlyn (KK) finishes up 1.5 years of nannying with us. She is going back to school. We are excited for her but miss her. She invited us over to her house for a goodbye celebration.

Family ring

look at my new bling! Ive always thought it would be cool to have a birthstone ring. My Grandma Jean who just passed away had one. Since I only have three kids (plenty!) and two of their birthstones are blue, I added Jordan and me too.   The order from top to bottom is Erin Elliott Jordan Natalie Conor

Date!!!

Elliott and I got a pre-second grade date in! Indoor rock climbing with masks. There was hardy anyone there.  And we took a long break outside on the sidewalk where E just chatted to me in the son. He is really good. He kept trying to Boulder (aka no rope) which is so hard but he was good. I love him.
