Part 3 of 3. Happy birthday to the man of the house.
I guess things really stopped being so crazy after we were done babysitting. We were able to come home and relax a little, but I still have some pictures I want to share from Rich's birthday this year.
With Rich leaving for work at 6 in the morning, there wasn't much to do for celebrating before he got home. But we went over to Rich's parents' house for his birthday dinner, which was the traditional Nelson birthday dinner of steak, potatoes, and fake crab.
Presents followed dinner.
Norah had a little pre-Christmas warmup.
This was a camp stove from Rich's parents. The thing was tiny! So cool!
This was my first attempt at a cheesecake. It's not much to look at (I don't have a springform pan), but at least it tasted good!
Based on the amount of candy he received, Rich considered this to be a very successful birthday.
And here are a few more pictures and videos from the week to get me all the way caught up:
It's pretty crummy quality, but I still wanted to post this. It's obvious she gets her great dancing skills from her mother. Also notice the music she's dancing to - yep, that would be the Carpenters Christmas CD.
Norah has been fighting nap time a lot lately, so she's been having quite a few car naps. We just also just switched her to forward facing, and she's been loving it because she gets a fantastic view of all the Christmas lights.
Norah loves being in her crib. She was being a bit of a crab one day, so I put her in with some books and toys, and she was in heaven. She played in there for at least 20 minutes, completely happy. She even asked to get back in again later.
Again, loving her crib. In the mornings, she'd be completely fine to lay in here and play until she got hungry.
So, that's the end of our past little while of crazy busy-ness. Things will be quiet for a couple more weeks until family come in town for Christmas, which we are really looking forward to! We could use a little more crazy in our lives.
