trip and gingerbread houses

My friend Katie and I went to California this weekend for the OC swap meet. It was so much fun. It was an all day activity. We walked around and around looking at all the shops and found some pretty good deals. Then we went on an auto ferry. I have never been on one before and it was a little weird feeling the car rock back and forth with the waves. Next we went to an art festival and saw a glass blower make a fish. Very cool. Then we went to the beach and later that night went to the mall. Yes, I know what your thinking. Was that really all in one day? Yes, yes it was. We had so much fun and will definitely have to do it again.

We made our traditional gingerbread houses. Parker had a blast doing it this year. Every time we handed him a piece of candy he would try to put it in his mouth and we would have to stop him and show him he could put it on the house. Every time. It was like he wanted to lick every piece before putting it on.

Here is mine.

Dr updates

We just got back from Parker's 15 month checkup. Here are his stats:
weight= 25.02 (50%)
Height= 33 1/2 (97%)
Head= 19 1/2 (95%)
He had to get shots today also. He was such a trooper. He didn't cry at all. He whimpered a little when each of the needles went in, but no crying. The nurse said he was her best patient of the day. I am such a proud mom.

I went to the doctor on Wednesday for my sore throat that I have had for three weeks. Turns out that I have tonsillitis. So the doctor gave me some antibiotics and amazingly enough, thinks I will live.

We got to go and visit Steve's family for Thanksgiving. Parker loves seeing his cousins and being able to play with them. We are lucky that they live close enough so we can see them often.

We went and got a Christmas tree last night and got to decorate it for family night. We made gingerbread cookies and hung them low on the tree because Parker likes to take them off and eat them. We also got to put up all of the Christmas decorations.
