Grandrabbits Toy Shoppe

One of the kids' favorite activities is to go to Grandrabbits Toy Shoppe, a local, totally fun toy store. They've got an awesome selection of great toys and we go several times a month. The kids could spend hours there, but we usually only stay for a thirty minutes or so, because, as we've found, the longer we stay the harder it is to leave.

We went this weekend and the kids had a blast. There were tears from both Ruby and Jack when we had to go home.

Pumpkin Doughnuts

We made a little treat for our morning snack....pumpkin doughnuts. Ruby loved "helping", which mostly involved her playing with a little piece of dough, but she especially loved eating. The girl downed a doughnut and two holes and would have eaten more if we hadn't cut her off.

And this boy?

Ate three holes without batting an eye.

Jack loved them. You know he likes his food when he doesn't play, mess around or chatter while he's eating. He was silent and ate his doughnut holes in about 5 minutes flat. Delicious.

If you're interested in the recipe it's online from Our Best Bites. Super easy and super good.

Ruby said....

While saying the dinner prayer...

"Please bless Mommy, and Jack, and Daddy to get some hair on his head."

When Grandma comes to visit....

Bobby's mom spent the last couple weeks with us, which was a huge help as we both had to spend a lot of time at the office. So Ruby and Jack got lots of Grandma love. And one of the best things when Grandma comes? She brings her cat.

Ruby's first attempt at the dentist...

We've been very busy with the new office. We just finished week two and Bobby's been spending countless hours handing out business cards and brochures, training and making sure the office is perfect. He's seen new patients and we're slowly but surely starting to build our business. I've spent a ton of time cleaning, making art, decorating, organizing and putting in a few hours of training too.

And Ruby and I got to be Bobby's first patients. Don't let this picture fool you:

Ruby DID NOT like going to the dentist. Let's just say we'll be coming back every couple weeks until she's comfortable enough to get her teeth clean.

Snow Day

Ruby was one happy girl this morning. Because as soon as she finished breakfast she got to do this:

First time playing out in the snow this fall. Jack was watching her very closely. As soon as I can get him some boots he'll be out playing with his sis.

The New Office: We're Open!

We've still got a few things to finish and we're waiting for the back-ordered lobby chairs to arrive, but we're open and have patients scheduled. I am so proud of my awesome husband! He's going to have a lot of fun working at his own practice.

Preschool Bike Day

Ruby's class has been learning about transportation and vehicles in school this week. And so today was a special day. And she was really excited....some of the city's fleet of service vehicles visited preschool today. She got to sit in a dump truck and a bulldozer. Wow. I wasn't able to take any pics of those festivities because I had some errands to run with the little man.

But we came back for bike day. Ruby had a blast riding her bike with the rest of her class.
