Benji was psyched to turn 4 (because we mistakenly told him that he could stop napping once he did).
Grandma and Grandpa came in to celebrate a week early. We went to Quartino for dinner (it was way too loud for GG so we ended up crashing Aunt Cari’s house for dessert).
Benji got a Viewmaster and ended up loving it so much he chose to bring it in to school for his “show and tell” day.
On the day of his birthday, Nanny and Poppy came over for a special french toast breakfast (the kids are on break). After that, we headed to Northbrook Court for lunch with Great Grandma Poo Poo…
…and then visited Great Grandpa Morrie at his office. Joey had a great time playing, “which one is bigger?” and showing off his math skills…
Finally a Thanksgiving we were able to attend as planned (we’ve been sick the last 2/3 years). We had Thanksgiving dinner at The Goodmans house (Carrie is such a good cook!) and then headed to the lake for dessert.
The boys had such a great time playing with their “boy cousins”
The kids loved exploring the lake in the Winter.

We headed back early from the lake to celebrate Poppy again!
Benji got up in front of his entire school to teach “go cubs go.”

Goldie’s finger got slammed in a door this month. She was a trooper and is slowly recovering from the ordeal. She had to be put under in order to stitch her up properly and only wanted Bubbie when she woke up.
