We spent the rest of the weekend in Peoria and had a great time. Friday we laid low except to brave the freezing cold for a photo shoot with my sister. I was hoping to get at least one picture for our Christmas cards, but Owen was a disaster. My sister's a miracle worker, but he screamed and had a runny nose and poor Ellie was freezing. So I'm not crossing my fingers too much.
Saturday morning Owen woke up to be greeted by the cows. He has officially named the one we see most often Herbert Owen. William and Grandma fed them some potatoes.
After a little play time, we decided to head out to Target just to get out of the house a little bit. Man she looked big sitting in that cart!
When we got home, we decided to give the photo shoot one more try since it was a bit warmer. So we get everyone back in their clothes and driving out to my grandpa's nursery. Owen did a little better. . .for about a minute. Sigh.
We just hung out Saturday evening and finally watched a good movie out of the 3 we saw over the weekend. Tower Heist. It was very funny!
Ellie got a kick out of learning how to shake her head from side to side.
This is how Owen spent most of the weekend at Grandma's and Grandpa's. He loves to line up his cars. And then take them upstairs and line them up. And then take them back downstairs. And repeat. Repeat again.
Today was a super fun reunion day at my parent's church. Ellison liked modeling her new hat. :)
We got to see Laura and Andrew, who are living in Austin, and meet their sweet little girl, Ellery. Laura and Jenna led worship and it was fabulous!
Here's Ellie's and Elle's matching carseats.
We also got to see Pam and Kevin and Philip and Kara far too briefly as the kiddos were pretty much done after lunch today. Grandma let Owen take some of her cars home (like he doesn't have enough at home). He wouldn't even let me take the bag off his lap the whole way home. I think he had a great time!
