Happy Thanksgiving and an Ella video

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving today despite both of my kiddos being sick. Hunter was diagnosed on Tuesday with pneumonia and today Ella is not feeling well at all, has a little bit of a cough and by the end of the night had pretty much no voice. We headed up to my mom's house and ate a lot of really delicious food, played, colored, ate pie, watched Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, danced, an played some more! I have oh so very much to be thankful for...I am very blessed!!!

My babies.
The table, looked so good!
The kids made the place cards, Ella made Nana's.

My favorite of course, mine, Hunter made it : )

My view at Thanksgiving....I am a lucky girl!

Ella chowing down, ahhhh the crazy hair!

My Hunter Bug, I so love this sweet boy!

After dinner we did some coloring. Here is one of Hunter's really cracked us all up, the kid has a great sense of humor. I'm thinking I will frame this one and put it up every Christmas!
Ella eating some pie! Pie makes a sick girl feel better....even if its only temporary!

My son however doesn't like pie, at least not pumpkin and not apple, and he hates Cool Whip/whipcream so he had ice cream. Crazy kid.

Here is a video of Ella before we left to go to my mom's. I wanted to record her talking about "fat turkey" as that is all we have heard about for the last 2 weeks. Her teachers read a story at school that had something to do with fat turkeys and she has been obsessed ever since. I just love the way she says it and never want to forget the year of "fat turkey!" Ignore her voice quality as she was in the process of losing her voice!

All in all we had a fantastic Thanksgiving and we are so incredibly blessed!!!

Now hopefully we can get in at the doctors tomorrow for poor Ella, who is now breathing quite loudly.

Ella lost her first tooth

Last night my baby lost her first tooth. I am depressed. Losing baby teeth is a sure sign that a child is no longer a baby. Sigh. I don't like it. Not one bit. We've known for about a week that she had a wiggly tooth, I noticed that one of her teeth looked crooked and checked it and found it to be quite wiggly. Hunter didn't lose his first tooth until he was 6 (much to his dismay,) and because Ella's teeth came in late I just figured we had a couple of years to go. Ella on the other hand was quite excited by it all! She put her tooth in a little zip lock bag and we told her all about the tooth fairy, she did NOT want the tooth fairy to take her tooth, LOL! When she woke up this morning she was very happy to have 5 dollars and didn't care about her tooth! She has told me about 100 times today about her "lost tooth." So cute! I keep getting teary everytime she talks about it, not sure if it's because she is officially a big girl now or because I know that some MAJOR orthodontic work is in our near future.....
