Oh, how I have missed my camera! I am so glad to have it back!
Just a little fun with Daddy before bedtime...
Vroom, vroom! Go Daddy! Go!
A little push from Levi
"Are we really done?"

I was just getting ordering pizza for Friday night dinner from our local pizza shop when I turned around to find Levi like this. Yes, he is actually drinking maple syrup, he had unscrewed the cap. Since I already had my phone in my hand, I took a quick snapshot. When I asked him what he was doing, he looked at me, smiled and said "Mmm, yummy!" I couldn't help but to laugh!

Today, I decided to document my day with photos. I have seen it done before and I like the idea that one day my kids can look back and see what a day was like for us when they were little.
Our day started out with the kids both waking up around 7 and after a couple of diaper changes we all had some breakfast, pancakes for Levi and milk for Lily.
After breakfast, we all had to get ready to go to Lily's 9 month appointment with her pediatrician. We piled in to the car and we were off.
Lily was all smiles for the doctor until it came time for her flu shot. People who say that shots don't hurt, have never taken a baby to get shots...
Lily fell asleep on the way home and I managed to get her into the house and into her bedroom without waking her up and she ended up sleeping for over an hour. Levi and I had some lunch while she slept. He had Spaghettio's and ended up wearing almost as much as he ate. He also decided that his bowl looked like a good hat so he got a quick shampoo in the sink before he went down for a nap.
After naps, I had a couple of happy kids again! One of Levi's favorite things to do is to help take the trash out so while I put a new bag in the can, Levi headed for the door with the full bag in tow.
I can't believe that it is so warm in the middle of November, especially since we had a couple of inches of snow last week. After naps and chores, we headed outside to enjoy this unusually warm day!
Levi knows that his Daddy's snowmobile is stored in the trailer out back and wanted to go see it so we all climbed in and he had a blast. Lily, on the other hand, did not! She is already scared of her brother's driving!
We took a short walk around the back of our property and checked out the horses next door.
This was Lily's first time crawling around outside and she loved it. Levi kept finding sticks on the ground and he would take them to the nearest tree and tried to put them back.
Since my husband doesn't usually get home from work until just before the kids go to bed, I am usually left to make dinner before he gets home so that we can all eat as soon as he's home. Most nights this means that I cook while trying to wrangle 2 tired, hungry kids who are usually whining and crying. Tonight was an exception, Lily fell asleep in her highchair shortly after I put her there and in hopes of keeping Levi quiet so that she would stay that way, I put Disney Junior on TV and he snuggled right in and watched. I was able to cook dinner in peace and Daddy came home to a quiet house and a relaxed Mommy!
Both kids were very excited when Daddy got home from work and everyone was full of smiles!
Levi is becoming very independent when it comes to getting dressed and usually insists on putting his pants on himself.
The last thing we do every night is read. Mommy and Daddy take turns reading to the kids and it is one of my favorite times of the day. After books, Daddy snuggles with Levi and Mommy nurses Lily then it's into bed for both of them and its relaxing time for Mommy and Daddy!
If you have stuck with me for this whole post, thank you! I had a great day and I hope everyone else did as well!
