Catchin up!

Getting slower with the blogging. Usually post pictures to Facebook now. But still, we get to keep the things I post here, so will try to do better. I think now I've missed Margot's second birthday, Thanksgiving and Hanukkah. Whew that's a lot to catch up on. Pictures. I'll start with pictures.
Margot decided before her second birthday party, that she needed to wear a crown. This is not something she usually does, I guess it just felt right. And if I'd known she was going to wear it, it would have definitely been decorated for the occasion. She had a "Sweet Shop" theme to the party, but it kind of went by the wayside. It was fun though to see some of the kids playing and "making" cupcakes cookies and cake and "selling" them. All pretend! And we discovered why people pay money to have others run their party for them. It's too much work when it's not at your house to get it all together!




Bullet points:
-Nash's favorite songs are "Eye of the Tiger" and "We Will Rock You"
-Margot's favorite song is called "Mouse In My Toolbox" by Laurie Berkner
-They both also love Barenaked Ladies kids album called Snacktime.
-Margot got her first Barbie-ish doll for her birthday - a fairy. And she likes her. But she doesn't really play with her.
-Margot is discovering her emotions and makes faces on command. Mad. Happy. Silly.
-Margot carries around the step stool all over the house turning lights on. Or off. Or whichever they're not.
-Nash writes his name on his own! Just drew an awesome picture of his family under a rainbow :)
-Nash got all kind of great cool presents for Hanukkah but his favorite one is an Iron Man toy.
-Nash and Margot's favorite place to eat is Dewey's pizza. And on the way there every time there are holiday lights they both yell, "Pretty lights! I saw them first!"
-Nash is becoming a better eater! To get seconds at school he has to eat everything on his plate. So he's even had a few bites of green beans lately! Yesterday at home he ate a half a banana. He hasn't done that since he was a baby. Thanks Raintree!
-Nash loves to paint watercolors, and is so very diligent about cleaning off his brush before changing colors.
-Nash wants to wear jeans EVERY DAY
-Margot wants to do whatever Nash wants to do. Right now apparently they both want to take a nap, which is awesome because my birthday is tomorrow and my awesome husband surprised my by getting a babysitter tonight!



Also, Nash graduated from Superhero school with the Superhero name "Black Flame". He is WAY into Superheroes. At Superhero school he learned how to be a good friend and a good citizen, how to mix colors, how to design a pattern, how to draw shapes, the characteristics of a Superhero vs. a hero (Is a doctor a Superhero? Firefighter?)

We all celebrated and it was a happy day.
