Our visit with SANTA!!!

Riley asked for a rabbit, and Raegan asked for a dinosaur!!! :)
CHRISTMAS TIME!!!!

Notice Finn is watching all the activity. He wants so badly to crawl to the tree....
Finn is working hard with motor-skills and grabbing/holding onto things he sees in front of him. He's trying to be such a big helper!!!!



We made sugar cookies with Grandpa TT's homemade cookie cutters. One of an angel, the other of an ichthys....
Riley wanted to make the fish orange, so if you look closely, there's a fish underneath all that icing :).
The Angel-frosted and sprinkled!

NOVEMBER 2011 UPDATE..... CONTINUED....


Sister and I are getting very good at using dua (chopsticks).... We ate eel and tuna.... with white rice and loved it! Watch out sushi bars... here we come!!!
Raegan's in the photo above, she was comfortable with head-phones to drown out the noise, tic tacs to freshen the breath, sunglasses to block out the brightness, and her puppy dog to comfort her during take off and landing! PERFECT!!! She's got this figured out!
Even more comical!!! Raegan is at the window excited to see the clouds during take-off, and Riley cannot stand any of it! She cannot wait until the take-off process is over with and cruising in the air! :) We were heading to Minnesota to visit friends.....
We got to visit with our Godparents..... long time since we've seen them. It was great spending time with you guys!!!
In the photo above, Finn with uncle Jim! :)
We helped with bath-time for James! :)
Mommy took us to Mall Of America while we were in Minneapolis, and this is what we looked like afterwards..... tuckered out!!!! We went on rides at Nickelodeon Universe and of course.... ate lots of food and went on many rides!!! :).....
Then, mommy re-positioned us to a more comfortable sleeping position so our necks wouldn't cramp up....
This is the three of us with our friend James. He is 5 months older than baby brother Finn. We can already tell they are going to grow up to be best buddies...
When we got back from our trip to MN, daddy caught this in the Charleston inter-coastal waters!!! We steamed the fish and made spring rolls with them... dipped them in ginger chili sauce... YUM.... too bad the 4 of us were able to enjoy them but Finn couldn't join us quite yet....

Turkey leg !!!! :).....
Baby Finn even got a taste of peas for the first time and LOVED it!!!! :)

Patriot's Point

Hey everyone... it's Raegan. Daddy took sister and I to see the USS Yorktown at Patriot's Point, but Riley was REALLY camera-shy that day for some reason. It seemed like Riley was attached to daddy's right leg the entire time! :)

Daddy gave us a mini course in history while we were there. What a fun time! Thanks daddy!

NOVEMBER 2011 UPDATE.....

Dear Family and Friends.....
It's Raegan and Riley here... been quite a while since we've hacked into mommy's computer to keep everyone updated, but we've all been busy bees lately..... here's the latest...

Our friends from Minnesota, Bob and Rita, came down for a visit to meet Finn finally. It was so great seeing you guys and catching up! :)
Mommy took us to see DISNEY ON ICE. What an unforgettable experience! We still ask mommy now and then if we can go see all the disney friends again, but she keeps telling us that Mickey and Minnie have other places they have to skate at for other children. We cannot wait to run into them again soon!!!

We also got to experience the Coastal Carolina State Fair....It's clear that our family LOVES state fairs!!!

There were SO many rides!

Raegan enjoyed fried pickles, and Riley enjoyed a hand-dipped corn dog. We also had fried veggies, a gyro, a 1-lb italian sausage extravaganza, and ice cream cones!!!
Funny.. We all had tummy aches when we got home, but we're ready for the fair again next year!!!

Grandma and grandpa came to visit again before they left to Vietnam. Finn really connected with Grandma and they were inseparable!

This is us at the happiest place on EARTH!!! We LOVE this place... it's CHUCKY!!! :)
