Thanksgiving baking

We had a great Thanksgiving Day. We had lots of time to hang out and do fun things together. One of Natalie's favorite things to do is baking - and decorating the baked goods. Of course, we had to make a Thanksgiving-theemed cake:
Gobble, gobble...
Since we had more cake batter left over, we also made a bunch of cupcakes, and went to town  decorating them:
So pretty.
More turkeys, and some other crazy ideas!
Happy Thanksgiving!

When Karsten was a kid, he had a lot of legos. Lately, his Mom has been sending them to us a little at a time. Natalie has been having a blast putting them all together:

Legos, legos everywhere...
She even wanted to make a little video for her Grandma about them:

Crazy hair day

Natalie had a crazy hair day at school. She did her hair all by herself:

The look from the front...
And from the back.
She even put the hair color in all by herself!

Christmas parade selfie

Natalie and I went to the annual Christmas parade. This year it was really, really cold - in fact it was so cold that Natalie asked to leave about halfway thru. But we did have time for a quick self-portrait:

Gotta love that gap-toothed smile!

Natalie the reader

Natalie is getting really good at reading. She even asked me to take a few pictures of her reading a book all by herself:

Reading about princesses...
Smile for the camera...
...Aaand, back to the book.
Such a cute bookwork!

TV Time

The other day, Natalie was watching TV while I was working on something in the kitchen. When I walked by, I noticed how she was "sitting":

Very comfortable!
