It's so hard to believe that our little Maggie has turned one year old. Her official birthday was Tuesday, however, we celebrated on Sunday. We were supposed to have a houseful to celebrate, but as it turned out, it's flu and cold season. Uncle Jeff and Aunt Mindy were in Jamaica, and Cousins Hannah and Jack were sick....and Uncle Toby and Aunt Cynthia were still waiting for their little baby....We had a small, but mighty gathering of her Hudson grandparents and uncle Darin. Jami (daycare lady) and her youngest daughter (Maddie) stopped by for a little while. Her older daughter was also sick. Owen was sick, too....and Maggie's cold was just coming on....nobody really felt that great. Actually, I think Dan, Karen, and Darin all felt fine. Hopefully they didn't pick anything up while staying with us.
It ended up being a fine day. Maggie loved playing with the paper, and is enjoying playing with her new toys.

Maggie really isn't asleep. She babbled his ear off. We didn't quite catch what she wanted for Christmas. She already has her two front teeth....she probably wants all those other ones that make her gums swollen to come in.
Here's Owen putting the first ornaments on the tree. They didn't stay on. Somebody kept taking them off, so we just put all the ornaments away for another year (or two. or three.)
Owen of course has to be Daddy's little helper.
We are just about ready for the holiday season. One more week of work and then some time off. We discovered however, that with our snowday and keeping the kids home it really was more work taking care of them and running (literally) after them, than our actual jobs. We did manage to go sledding on our snow day....

Owen sacked out after a heck of a performance.
Maggie's new "do." She's finally getting enough hair to play with.
Owen and Hannah, partners in crime. Grandpa and Maggie.
Jeff, Jack, and Dave...I think the Huskers have lost by this time in the day.
Maggie's always ready to smile.
Not sure what they're up to here. All in all it was another successful Thanksgiving. Mindy's pumpkin pie was fabulous, my stuffing was pretty good and Jeff's smosted turkey got eaten in a hurry. (It was half smoked and then finished off by being roasted). Everyone got a long fairly well...even the two-year olds! The babies got along fabulously. Just wait until next year....We'll have 2-three year olds, 2 two-year olds and an almost 1 year old!

Pictures from the Louisville State Park. Saw the geese....paddle boats were all put away for the year. Owen was so disappointed that the teepees didn't have their "covers" on them anymore.
Owen and Maggie in their tent.

Owen made this "thingy" all by himself. At first it started out as an airplane, and soon turned into a "thingy." He looked through it like he was sighting something...which makes sense, because we went to the Council Bluffs train museum yesterday, and he looked through a surveyor scope.
Here's Maggie, cute as can be.
No one believes me when I tell them I'm raising a monkey. Here's the proof. Curious Owen. We survived our first Halloween trick-or-treating. It really wasn't that great. We thought 5:30 would be early enough. So Dave took Owen out around that time, but only 1 person on our block came to their door. I don't think Dave really wanted to take him to a bunch of places where we had no clue who lived inside the house, so they came back, Owen's pumpkin only slightly full. The upside is that we don't have to worry too much about tooth decay!
Here's a happy Maggie....laughing at the monkey, again.
Here's Owen all serious. He loves his new church outfit. He was very careful to not get it dirty.
Here's the last of the summer pictures. It only took me 2 months to post Owen's 2nd birthday

Here's Maggie, cute as can be. The storm didn't bother her at all!

Owen and Maggie learning how to share.
This is about half-way up the mountain. Everything is getting smaller.
This is my friend Ann and her son, Lane. I've been friends with Ann since my "North Bend" teaching days. She's one of those gals that you meet, get to know and just want to stay in touch with for a very, very long time...
