a full house on Thanksgiving!

Steve and I hosted Thanksgiving for my side of the family this year. We packed 14 adults and 5 kiddos into our little condo and had a great time. We even squeezed a bbq in on Friday night (which is much more our style!) Lily loved playing with all her cousins and it was great to have everyone down in Santa Maria for a change. Thanks for coming!!

our awesome friends Shawn and Jnet gave Lily these shoes when she was born. Unfortunately they don't fit anymore...but, they have become one of her favorite toys. Finally, a shoe she is allowed to chew on!

This afternoon Lily pulled herself up to standing on our ottoman! Crazy! So, after she did this, Steve and I decided that it really was time to move her mattress in her crib down (before she stood up and did something catapult herself over the side of her crib!). So Steve went and moved it down to the 3rd lowest level (there are 4 options, but the last one seemed sooo low). After he did that, he put Lily in her crib, just to test it out, and right away she reached for the top railing and pulled herself up again! Needless to say, we went ahead and moved it all the way down to the last level :-)
