5 months

Little Man turned 5 months on November 25th.  He was sick that day but I managed to take a few pictures.  He is growing and changing at a crazy fast pace.  He is rolling over both ways, grabbing and playing with toys.  He has decided that he does not like to sleep right now but loves to eat every 2 hours around the clock.  This has made for one tired baby and one tired momma.  He weighs 14 pounds.


We hosted Thanksgiving for the 2nd year in a row and I hope we can continue this tradition.  There were 10 of us all together and we had a huge amount of food.  The girls got to help prepare the turkey and peel potatoes.  The day was beautiful.  The bad news is Trenton was getting sick and went downhill from Thanksgiving on.  He ended up having a double ear infection and RSV.  I am happy to report he is finally among the healthy.  It has been a long week and a half..

This is a picture from Jillian's Thanksgiving Feast.  She was one cute turkey.
I love this next picture.  The girls wanted to see what the turkey looked like and their faces say it all.  Jillian was just glad it didn't have a head.
Trenton was taking all the meal prep in from a distance.
The girls got to butter the turkey.
Mike and Trenton took a quick pre-meal nap.
Next up was washing and peeling potatoes.

And then it was time to eat and I only took one picture.  Guess I was busy stuffing my face.
Aunt Kim came with new scarves she made for the girls.  She let them pick buttons for them.
I am not sure what these next pictures are all about but they are cute.

Trenton and Daddy found time for a post meal nap as well.

Here is Jillian at Thanksgiving 2009.

Lady and Uncle Alex stayed Thanksgiving night and hung out with us the next day.  Trenton was really sick at this point and you can see it in his face.

The Saturday after Thanksgiving Granny came to visit.  Here she is playing with Trenton and Hadley.
Jillian was busy loving on her baby.
We had a great Thanksgiving break.

Grandpa and Grandma visit

The weekend before Thanksgiving was a busy one.  Hadley had a Christmas dance recital and a holiday parade to walk in.  Grandpa Kent and Grandma Terry came down for a visit and to see the events.

Hadley reading to Grandma.

Trenton was ready for gameday.  The sad news is that we lost our only game of the regular season that night :(
Grandpa and Jillian
Mike putting a smile on his face just for me.

The girls and Grandpa and Grandma.
Check this cutie out!
I didn't get any pictures at the recital.  It was outside and dark so I left my camera at home.
On Saturday Hadley, Trenton and I walked in the Holiday Parade with Hadley's Daisy Troop.  It was beautiful weather.
Trenton bundled up and ready to go.  Sad part is he only lasted in the stroller while we waited for the parade to start.  I ended up carrying him with one arm and pushing the stroller with the other for the actual parade part.
 The elf daisies!

I love seeing Hadley starting out in Girl Scouts.  I have many memories of Girl Scouts and surprised Hadley when I could sing all of the songs they learned at the first meeting.  Hadley loves it so much she memorized her Girl Scout promise in one night and hasn't stopped saying it since.  I think even Jillian has it memorized now.

Family in town

A few week ago we had the pleasure of hosting our first big group at the new house.  We had 14 people counting our family.  My Aunt Krista, Uncle Tim, and cousins, Cole, Claire and Cade were here from Minnesota.  My mom, Granny and Grandpa all came from Kansas.  And my Aunt Kim came over from Enid.  They all got here on Friday afternoon.  We had dinner and then a group headed to the high school football game.  On Saturday some of us went to Hadley's last soccer game of the season.  Then we had a wonderful taco feast for lunch.  They all had to leave late Saturday afternoon.  It was a short trip but we loved have everyone here and can't wait for them all to come back.

More of the crew eating.
Aunt Kim loves to color and thought we had set a coloring table just for her :)
Can you tell they are sisters?
Granny Jean loving on her great grandson.
Claire and Jillian ( I still hear once a day, "When is are the Neuberts coming back?")
Claire reading the girls bedtime stories.  If Claire lived closer she would be hired as our babysitter.  She is great with the girls and the girls love her.  Claire was the flower girl in our wedding.
Aunt Krista might have a small facebook addiction :)
More love from Granny Jean.
This boy looks more like his daddy each day.
Claire, Cole, Hadley and Cade
Tim making his FANTASTIC salsa.  I have been known to eat it with a spoon, it is that good.

This little girl was excited about a Wildcat football game!
My little man and me.

Granny Jean loves babies and they love her!
Grandpa almost managed to avoid the camera all weekend and at Thanksgiving.  Next time I see him, he is getting his own photo shoot.
Can you tell we are a Wildcat family???
Claire, Krista and Trenton
What would we do with out technology these days?
I can't wait for everyone to come back, so get in your cars and head this way.
