Kids with Daddy

The kids didn't see Doug for much of October--we traveled up to NY to visit my mother for two weeks, and then they were in LA visiting grandparents. Needless to say, they clung to Doug for awhile after we returned!

Silly Kids

Dad came to visit this weekend, which, by the way, was the nicest visit we've had together in years, and took these pics of my silly kids.

I think it was the first visit he came by himself and stayed with us (usually he's with another family member or he stays with his mother, my Oma). I'm sure he appreciated being awakened every morning by an exuberant five-year-old.

Fun on the Swingset

Grandma and Grandpa bought the kids an early Christmas present: a new swing set! The kids, needless to say, are thrilled to death. Grandpa finished building it just as the sun was going down and the kids were awake at the crack of dawn the next morning wanting to get back outside.

The kids love to ride on this, and I love seeing them working together to make it go higher and faster!

Cinderella had to wear a turtleneck under her ball gown...she didn't mind, though!

Brad went as Woody from Toy Story.
