Happy Birthday, Sienna, Arthur, and Mickey!

Birthday date for my November babies. It was also Mickey's birthday! I love all these pictures.

Random November

Enjoying my kid-free Tuesdays.

Wearing size 18 month pants from the car so she could play in the water while the big kids were at running club.

Free mini-golf with a friend. Worst mini-golfers ever.

Arthur really loves books.

Maggie was too sick for running club one week.

Don't step in the hot lava!

Arthur also sick.  I took him in for possible ear infections, which he didn't really have, but he had a sinus infection.  We went home and I put him straight in bed and discovered a roseola rash. 

Nice November weather.

Maggie and her friend at another friend's awesome boat party.

Sienna cried for 45 minutes after her immunizations.

This boy is so much trouble.  He climbs on all the things.

Thanksgiving in Utah

Flying to Utah for Thankgiving.

Grandma and Grandpa have quite the assortment of instruments.

Maggie and Dalton played lots of games with Grandpa.

Family gift exchange.

Maggie got tasked with counting the fake money.

John and Dalton saw Tyler in West Side Story and Maggie and I went to see Hannah in Fiddler on the Roof.

I talked Grandma into a churro at Sam's Club.

$2 Tuesdays at Jungle Jim's

We barely got to see the little cousins because they took turns being sick, but it was worth it. I can't remember the last time we went to Utah and none of us got sick.

Sienna wished for snow, and it suddenly happened!

Games after Thanksgiving dinner.

One more snow angel.

And a couple airplane angels.

Disney in November

This was a month of Arthur not feeling well at Disneyland. 

I caught on video Sienna's infamous "tic tock." It's so adorable, and hilarious.  In other news, it's 90 degrees. Arthur fell asleep in the car (twice). A WWII vet said Arthur was the cutest thing he'd ever seen, and that he could take his place next time. The entire park is sold out of Mickey ice cream bars. Sienna dropped Arthur's hat and we had to walk 15 minutes back to get it.  Actually found it, which makes one hat found out of three lost.  The idea was to avoid whining kids.  Mildly successful.

Arthur is on his second illness in a row and having a rough time.  But he was my least whiny of the four at Disneyland today.  He loves it all.  Being out and about, making friends, visiting with characters, riding in te stroller, being carried by mom, going on rides, listening to music and entertainment.  It's his happy place.

We discovered World of Color was at 8:15 on weeknights (9:45 on the weekends) so we made a late night of it.

First time riding Screamin' at night, for the kids.

John came with us for a few hours, while we met up with a friend and her two little ones.
