Thanksgiving Time

Nina had another fun road trip to Nebraska.  She loved spending time with Nana and Papa and enjoyed the warm weather for the first part of the trip.

Getting colder, get inside!

With November realizing that's it's supposed to be cold, the Naks have retreated indoors to play.  Nina has found new fun jumping from the chair into Mama's arms, climbing with a purpose, driving around in her box, and reading books again and again.

Pet Sounds

The Naks have been running all over and it's hard to believe that a quarter of the school year is already done.  There's too much to say, so we'll just show you what we have been doing and how Nina makes it all a bit more entertaining.  The last few days we've all been fighting colds of some sort, made worse by the fact that Nina says "no" much of her waking hours.  Oh toddlerhood.

Halloween was a wonderful time with our little ghost.  Nina looked great in the costume Nana made.  She was pretty shy around the neighbors, and despite weeks of scaring people, she ended up on the other end of the scares for most of the night.  She enjoyed taking part in trick-or-treating at the library with some other tots.  

We have all been trying to take in the warm fall and the beautiful colors.  Nina rarely stops, but usually does at this part of the neighborhood to smell the flowers... so inspirational!  Lately, her favorite activity includes climbing on anything she can find, especially her little chairs.  She has been pushing them all over the house to help her climb up on the couch, the guest bed, and she's even tried to open the back door.
