After 9 long months of waiting, our little Lyla Jane is finally here! She was born on Friday, November 14 at 8:02 A.M. She weighed 7 pounds and was 20 1/2 inches long. She is so beautiful and we are all in love. Both mom and baby are doing great!

We celebrated Will's birthday a few days early this year since Lyla would be arriving so close to it. We had a family "Thomas" party (shocker) and then took 4 of his friends to the Barn bounce house. This was the first year Will really understood the whole birthday thing. He was quite pleased with himself and he LOVED being the center of attention!
The kids were both so excited for Halloween this year. Liv wanted to be a Monarch butterfly & Will chose "Thomas." I tried to talk him out of this costume because it looked so horrible in the box...But I have to admit that he actually looked pretty stinking cute! And he was so pleased with himself when he put it on. "I Thomas, I Thomas," he kept yelling! You won't hear me admitting this very often, but I was wrong!
Liv wanted to play soccer again this fall. Her coach appropriately named the team the "Cheeseheads." Liv definitely was not the star of the team, but she loved it. She was disappointed not to get a goal this season (or any season for that matter). She loved to be with her friends and had a blast! Thanks Annie for being the girls' coach!
Gardener Village or bust! Our third trip was just as fun as the first two. This time we went with my cousins & their cute kids. We took a ride with a witch around the village and then went to Arctic Circle to get a square pumpkin for dinner (a tradition that my mom started when my brother and I were little). These cute kids love each other so much.
