We are trying a new template out for the blog. Click on "Week 14, 15 and 16" and it will take you to all of the pics!

Week 14

Week 15

Week 16
 Since this week was the week of Thanksgiving we were able to spend a couple extra days with Campbell. During those days we really started to notice Campbell cooing and talking to us. This was pretty fun to get her to talk back to us, well fun for now that is...LOL.

Addyson wearing her Indian headband from school. In getting ready for Thanksgiving the kids made their own bread for their Thanksgiving feast. They also learned about where food comes, having to go to the store to buy food and preparing it. We were told they really had a great time learning in the kitchen!

Addyson loves her "little sweetie". That is what Addyson calls her little sister. Campbell is still trying to figure Addyson out...Cam's face of fear says a lot!

After Thanksgiving we put up our exterior lights and our interior decorations, including our Christmas tree. Addyson helped put up a few Christmas ornaments.

This is a video of Addyson telling us about Santa Clause. She got to see him last week, but didn't want to sit on his lap. We hope if she sees him a couple times she will get up the courage to sit on his lap and talk to him. She sure does like talking about him, and gets excited, so I think it is just a matter of time.

Campbell's Week 13 & Halloween

Happy Halloween!

Both Addyson and Campbell were lady bugs this year for Halloween. Addyson had a fabulous time trick or treating. It took about 5 houses for her to get the "thank you" down after receiving candy, another couple of houses to get the "Trick or Treat" down and then she was off! She was so excited she practically ran to every house! And when we got home she laid out all of her candy and started to match them all -- too cute! And of course she was grinning ear to ear the entire time.

Grandma and Grandpa Brand came over to watch Campbell and hand out candy while Mom and Dad got to both walk around with Addyson. So much fun!

Almost done trick or treating...and still smiling!
