Ten on Tuesday

1. Penny update:  still waiting for it's arrival.  Looks like we will be taking Kelsea to get an x-ray this week.

2. We went ahead and saw Fantastic Mr. Fox on Saturday.  It was fantastic.  I think Wallis and I might have enjoyed it more than Kelsea.  Maybe if there was a princess thrown into the mix she would have been more excited about it?

3. While Lorelei was napping on me I asked Wallis to take some Thanksgiving pictures of the family before it got too dark.  This is what I came home with.  Not really what I had in mind to remember this Thanksgiving by...

I think Kelsea might be a better photographer than Wallis...
4. Inspired by an article I read on Thanksgiving, I spent my Sunday afternoon furiously making over our refrigerator.  I must have been feeling guilty about our Thanksgiving feast, but whatever the inspiration was, I'm pretty pleased with the result.
Here's the full length view:
And a close up of the yummy, healthy stuff:
5. Wallis was nice enough to make this delicious recipe from the same magazine.  We (actually that would be Wallis) is going to try this one on Saturday

6. I ate a cricket today.  
Are you asking why?  All for 100 points.  Want to know what the points are for?  Okay read on.  We (my office at work) went on a very thorough scavenger hunt through downtown Long Beach this afternoon.  This included a session of Dance, Dance Revolution, a game of Skeetball, a three seat bike ride, dressing up in a sumo wrestler bodysuit (hilarious), many pictures of random paraphernalia and several stops to stores/restaurants to find our next clue (12 to be exact).  I must admit the cricket eating place (Hot Licks) was my least favorite, and the "sour cream & onion flavor" didn't really help the fact I was eating a dried-up, crunchy bug.  Was it worth it?  Yes, we won. :-)

7. Lorlei will no longer let us spoon feed her (so much for all that baby food I just bought!)  This is what it looks like when she feeds herself.  
8. Due to the fridge makeover consuming my Sunday, I didn't quite get to the Christmas decorating as planned.  We at least got the advent calendar up tonight, so Kelsea will be happily surprised in the morning.

9. I still have two more November magazines before I get to my December ones.  Does anyone else have this problem?

10. Uh-oh, Kelsea is awake and crying and coming up the stairs...which means she will be snuggling with us tonight.  Does anyone else have this problem?

I love those Thanksgiving pictures! They are duplicates of each other. With the sleeping thing, tough love is all that worked here. It's harder than potty training (in my opinion). Snuggling just made our girls get up after we left anyway.

Don't even get me started on sleep. I'm now entering my 8th week without sleeping through the night because 1 or 2 of the boys has woken up. And those photos are HUH-Larious!

I laughed through that entire post. Would have loved to been a part of the scavenger hunt. I agree with Megan on the sleep issue. Hang in there.
