We attempted to have these family pictures taken on December 9th. We were hoping to use them for our Christmas card. It didn't work. As you can see, getting two kids and the dog to cooperate was DIFFICULT! The more members we add to our family, the harder it gets to make a family picture work.

Ben decided he was going to allow Maggie to take a nap with him yesterday. She found a binky for herself and settled in. After Ben steam-rolled her a few times, I had to put an end to the fun. How do you explain to a 2-year-old that even though his sister is laughing, it's best if he doesn't smother her?

Ben visited the dentist for the first time today. We talked it up for days.... he was so excited to go that we had to leave a full hour before his appointment. So, we swung by Daddy's office and picked him up too. This is Ben in the waiting room:
He was a little apprehensive when we first went back with the hygienist, but she went very slowly and let Ben look at and touch all the tools before she even touched him.
And when it was all over, Ben got a plastic fish and two stickers. All this plus the new toothbrush we had promised he would receive. He was thrilled!
By the time we returned to the waiting room to find our coats, he had forgotten the entire thing. He was really into this huge leopard painted on the wall. Hopefully, the pictures will remind him how easy this visit was, and it will be a breeze when we go back in six months.

We had such a blast with trick-or-treat! The kids were great. Ben didn't even know what trick-or-treating was until he went to daycare. He came home from "school" saying he wanted to go door-to-door and "get candies." He and our neighbor, Carson, filled their little pumpkin buckets. Maggie stayed at home with Mommy and Java to hand out candy. By the time we came inside, she totally crashed on the couch in her little Maggie Moo costume.
