First Thanksgiving

It was Sabrina's first Thanksgiving and it was a busy day. We went to both the Hoogland and Knott sides to celebrate and she really hung in there! The bummer part was, Kate and Austin weren't able to come due to Kate having to work. It just wasn't the same without them, but we thought of them often! The Knott's really outdid themselves with the spread this year, for some reason there ended up being more than usual, but it was amazing! Sabrina especailly loved the ham, cheezy potatoes, and corn. Then off too the Hoogland's. We missed bowling but got leftover dinner and played bingo as an appetizer for Christmas! I won dishtowels and Brad won coffee cups.

Unfortunately, we had battery issues with the camera and didnt get the shots we wanted, but we had jsut enough to get part of a message from the Hoogland's just before commencing on the annual game of BINGO!

Bare belly dancer

Sorry another sideways video! No excuse, just a complete dummy move :)

Naughty New Trick and Nice Visitors

This past weekend was lots of fun as Sabrina now has extended her exploring to climbing. On toys, on the fireplace, nothing is to big or scarey for Sabrina. Unfortunately it totally freaks mom and dad out! In this picture, Sabrina got a big "No NO!" as she pushed her learning center over to the footstool and climbed on it to get on top of the other!

She also found these boxes and didn't love the "Sweetie, we need to get down".

Another fun part of the weekend ws having Kate and Austin home for a couple days. They spent a few hours visiting on Saturday and then we got to see them again for brunch on Sunday! It didn't take long for her to warm up to her Auntie and before long we were all having a great time!

Diaper Duty

A favorite activity of Sabrina's is pulling things out of drawers, cupbords, bags, etc. The diapers in her changing table are no exception! The video is a bit long, but at the end she does a little talking (sort of)! This post is for you Laura and Ashley!

Baby Love

One of Sabrina's favorite toys lately is her baby doll. She drags it around with her and points to it's eyes, nose and mouth. In the rare cuddly moments, she will grab the dolly to snuggle with. Wed. night Sabrina and I spent some time with Kathy and Grace. I tried to get a picture of the girls together, but with two busy bodies, this is as close as I got! Oh well! It was fun to see the girls playing together (as much as two 9-10 month olds can!).

Shopper in Training

Sorry it's been a while since I've updated, my camera battery has been dead and I've been a bit lazy about taking pictures so I thought I'd post an old pic in the mean time. This one's for Kate!

Sabrina's now in intensive training to get her shop on. She was practicing how to juggle the plastic and say CHARGE IT!
