Sleeping In

Jonathan has had ear infections on and off for the last couple months (those $25 copay every 2 weeks are getting old) and recently hasn't been sleeping well.  Sunday morning everyone else was ready to head to church but I decided to stay behind and wait for Jonathan to wake up on his own instead of pulling him out of bed.  I would normally pull him out of bed at 8:30 for 9am church.  He slept until 10:20!  I'm glad he got his much needed rest and am hoping he will become a little sleeper.

Thanksgiving 2014

Thanksgiving morning I started the day with an 8 mile run.  There is a trail near our house that I wanted to try out, but didn't want to do in the dark.  From our house to the end of the trail and back it was 8.03 miles.  Perfect.  I took Jonathan with me in the BOB and still ran a 8:41 pace which I was excited about.

For Thanksgiving dinner we went to the Bernhisels house with 5 other families. It was pretty perfect.  They had cute place setting for the kids complete with a turkey to color.  Dinner was delicious.  I'm not a huge turkey fan, but how do you say no to fried turkey and smoked turkey from a BBQ place?  Both were awesome.  We brought mashed potatoes and a veggie tray.  After the dinner the kids ran wild in the backyard.
The desserts were also great.  Someone was smart and brought cookies.  Even with all the amazing looking pies, almost all the kids opted for a good old chocolate chip cookie.  It was fun to relax and enjoy chatting with other adults while all the kids played nicely together.

Dentist Time

Kevin and Kherington were super excited to head to the dentist again.  It makes a big difference to have a fun office.  Their appointments were at 11:30 and noon and we were walking out of the office at 12:05.  Even if they didn't already love the place, punctuality alone would keep me coming back. 

The kids had picture takes on their teeth and then got to wear cool sunglasses while their teeth were cleaned.  Both were cavity free.  They loved the little goodie bag complete with stickers.

Soccer Party

Kherington's soccer season ended somewhat abruptly.  They were supposed to have a game, but the league said it was too cold to play (even though the kids just older than them still played) and postponed their game to following Saturday.  It probably won't take place since the other team won't have enough players.  They did still have their soccer party.  It was supposed to be right after their last game so they kept the time.  One mom made cute little honey bee picture frames and visors for each girl.  Another brought delicious cupcakes.  The coaches handed out medals.  It was pretty low key and perfect.  I love watching her interact with little girls her age.

90's to Freezing

Monday it was 90.  By Friday it was freezing.  We learned that our house is not very well insulated and I need to figure out the programing on the thermostat.  The kitchen seemed to be extra cold so I got a little space heater.  It made it warm enough to eat sans clothes...not sure why Jonathan doesn't have anything on.

Late Night with Papa

Grandpa Dixon (now called Papa) had meetings in Dallas so we got to visit with him late one night.  It was late and we didn't have long, but it was nice to see him.  It was so late that Kherington (who normally loves the camera) refused to take a picture with him.  It is always fun to have time with grandparents.

Jon Bon

Jonathan disappeared and was being super quite.  I found him in the kitchen helping getting a snack.  He loves yogurt and hit the jackpot when he found a partially eaten open container sitting on the kids table which is low enough from him to reach.  He was already all covered when I found him so I just let him keep going.
