Thanksgiving and everything after...

Yeah, I know... It's been awhile. We've been busy, though! There is no denying that!

We had... 2 Thanksgivings and a wonderful long weekend in PhiladelphiaWatching the Macy's Parade... Unfortunately no pics of the Schieber Family Thanksgiving in New Market, MD. We had a great time and a lot of delicious food, though!





We all had tons of fun with Aunt Katie, Uncle Carl, and Olivia. The weather was chilly but we braved it on Saturday to walk at the park. Sunday it was nicer so we spent the day at Longwood Gardens.

A visit from Grammy and Grandpa and a birthday celebration (#1)

Owen on an airport run. Love the look :o)


Of course the box was the most fun gift!!! Don't worry, Grammy, he loves the chair and he uses it all the time!

Mike turned 30!!! (birthday celebration #2)



The boys made him a birthday sign that turned out beautifully!


Enjoying some holiday and winter festivities!

Schieber family bowling! Is is good or bad that I bowl better with a baby on my back?!

Trip to Omaha (12/29) (Christmas #3)


Trip to Iowa (12/30) (Christmas #4)

Could it be that this is the only picture we took? Ben in Daddy's bib?! I know we posed for lots of pictures... I'd love to post some if anyone would email them to me!

Back to Omaha (12/31)

We had so much fun cheering on the Bluejays at the Creighton basketball game!!! Mike and I also enjoyed a New Year's Eve party with our college friends while Mimi and Grandpa Jimmy babysat. Thank you so much to them. We never do anything exciting on New Year's Eve, so it was fun to go out!!!


Back to Kansas City (1/2)

Back to MD (1/6)
I flew home with the boys... All by myself... A little bit different experience than the last time when Ben was 5 months old and our flight was only an hour! They truly did great! I know they are great kids, but someone was watching out for me, I know!

Katie started her new career (1/9)
Yep, I taught my first breastfeeding class. It went pretty well. I received good feedback despite being so nervous!!! By the way, I just got a second part time job! I'll be teaching a few more classes at another hospital and doing some in home lactation consulting! Yea! My first Baby Care Basics class is on Monday night. I should be preparing right now instead of working on this darn blog...

Stomach bug..(1/11)

Owen's first snow day (EVER!!!- 1/18)

That pretty much catches you up on what we've been doing from Nov 25 until today! I don't know if I'll try that blog every day in November thing again... It took me awhile to get back into it after that! Thank you so much to all of our friends and family for being such wonderful hosts and hostesses! We had a great time. Though, I must be honest and tell you I am personally hoping for a more calm holiday season in 2011! Ten days of traveling is a lot with Owen and Ben!
