I’m all out of witty titles today. But, I do need to post about Thanksgiving and our trip to Orange County before Christmas at least.
We headed down the day before and it took 10 hours! It didn’t help that it was a holiday, plus we hit LA right during traffic time. But, we did make it all nice and well.
The next day Kaia decided she would walk for the first time. We thought it was for real, but if you read the last post, not so much.

Unfortunately, these are the only pictures I got on Thanksgiving. But, we did have a day of thinking of our blessings. We do have so much and I am thankful that we were able to visit with family this holiday.
Also on our trip we were able to spend most of the day with some of our best friends.
Britton and Mav had a great time! I loved visiting with Paige too. It’s been a while and we had a lot to talk about.
For my birthday Mom made some DELICIOUS French Toast, then we went to Newport Beach for a bit. I don’t think I’ve ever walked down that pier at all. We always go to Balboa’s. But it was practically perfect weather and the kids really liked looking at the water.
Britton even got to touch a crab a local fisherman caught. He thought that was cool.
After lunch Mom watched the kids while Mark and I went to a movie–finally, it’s been months! We saw Twilight–and this time it actually worked. Saturday we tried to go, but the theatre was having problems. We ended up with 4 ticket vouchers and 2 popcorn ones. Too bad they don’t have those theatres where we live. So, we were glad it worked out this time!
Happy Birthday to me!

Kaia decided that she would show us she could walk on Thanksgiving Day.
Then she was done. She has no interest in it. Other than walking on her knees. She does that a lot when she wants to carry something.
She didn’t do it again till my birthday 4 days later. Tried again? Nope. When she doesn’t want to, she just kneels down when we stand her up.
UPDATE: She has started to take a step or two away from us or the wall every once in a while. Hoping for progress this month or the doctor wants to see her again since at 15 months she’s in the last 10% to do it.

So, the site Star-Kidz has a holiday Q&A where fans can submit questions and the stars answer.
Here’s Britton’s: Q&A
I just typed as he answered. What do you expect? He’s 3!
