A "Sick" Thanksgiving

We had a really nice Thanksgiving on Thursday. Both sides of our family came together. I think it says a lot that Scott and I can bring our parents and siblings together with their own families and still have a grand old time. This year Thanksgiving was a little louder with the addition of Lindsay's family and the laughing that came along with her two crazies!

Thanks Lindsay for snapping some photos!Not sure what Chad was thinking but he let Coop and Cami go outside without shoes on. They were cold and soaking wet so they need a hot bath.. together.

P.S. The "Sick" part of Thanksgiving was that Cami, Scott, David, Tommie and I all were sick over the weekend. Little Cooper is having some tummy issues now so hopefully that is the last of it!

Potty Time?

There has been a lot of talk about pee and poo at our house. My parents and Scotts mom have been telling me for months that Cami is ready to potty train. She will be 20 months on Saturday.. its 20 months right? Anyway, she doesn't like to have a wet diaper anymore. She will tell you that she has peed and will even go an get the diaper. I would say about 4 out of 7 mornings she wakes up dry. I talked to Dr. Waddles (yes thats her peds real name) about it and she said that if they are not taking her a daycare then we should try it until they get on board. I talked to Cami's teacher and she said that she wont go into the "2's" until May. So, I'm a little confused because this AM Cami woke up dry just like the morning before. So instead of putting a new diaper on her only to change a soaking diaper in a 1/2 hour I took Cami into the bathroom and after a "little talk" got her to sit on the potty. And guess what, if that girl didn't pee in her potty! She then went over an got TP and threw it in the toilet, shut the lid and flushed her potty all while it sang her a merry little song. So friends... I feel like I'm at a crossroads. To potty train or not to potty train that is the question.

We are still here

Well, I think this might be the longest time between posts in awhile but I'm back. Montreal was a great city I just wish I had more time to actually walk around the town. That would of helped with the 5 pounds I gained! So, what is new at the Bowmans?

We have pretty much given up on the highchair. She will eat her breakfast in it but other than that she wants to be in her booster. She also like to read the circulars at dinner when she eats.

We also have a new fun thing that we like to do with her head when she gets her picture taken. She says "See" and turns her head. She then wants to see the back of the camera immediately.

I'm also thinking I might need a new camera. I think the pictures are coming out fuzzy... or maybe I need glasses. (no comments Laura)

Have you tried to get a passport lately! Good grief! Well after 3 attempts at filling out an application. A FedEx to Madison County and so on and so forth I applied for my passport on Oct. 4th. I paid extra to have it rushed ($250 -hello) and I am happy to say that I received it today. This is a good thing considering I leave for Canada this Saturday. So, I'm all happy when I get my passport and then I see the picture. Now, I'm not one that is really all worried about my picture but this one takes the cake! I look like an Oompa Loompa! I'm so orange its unbelievable. Maybe this is why my sister has called me pumpkin head for as long as I can remember. I showed everyone from work and they promised that I didn't look like this in "real life."
