November 2014 Tidbits

The beginning November was a milestone in our Fergy Family NO MORE THUMB SUCKERS! To celebrate I let Sophie and Cami pick out a toy, Sophie picked out Flint Ryder  and Cami choose a Play-mobile doll set. I then let the kiddos stay up a bit later for an ice-cream party. Cami still every once in a while sucks her thumb, but it's not an everyday issue and we are working on eliminating that.
This year we also baked pumpkin seed as requested by Phoebe. I made two batches, one cinnamon sugar and one savory with a chexmix like seasoning, which was my favorite.
In November I also finished my lat Young Women's project to earn my Personal Progress Medallion. The string art temple was my last project, I made a couple of them to fill my 10 hr requirement.
Costco also put out all their Christmas toy, including this humongous teddy bear, that Cami wanted, but I told her it wouldn't fit in the van. She then corrected me saying it didn't need to go in the van Santa could bring it in his sleigh.
Cory got 2 ticket from his boss to go see the Utah Oregon game where he sat in the middle of the Utah season ticket holders to watch the Duck trample the Utes.
The twin learned how to make breakfast for daddy and were so proud for him to eat their "yummy" butter with a side of bagel breakfast.
I have to admit I am a sucker for cute sleeping pics, including this one like father like son.
We got our first hint of snow in November and unfortunately we haven't see hardly any of the white stuff since.
Josh has always been my cuddly lovey boy. He doesn't like to be by himself and he LOVE his twiner Cami. One day when I walked by I saw these two cuddled like this watching TV.
I once saw this punishment for kids not getting a long on FB so one day when these girls could not go 5 minutes without fighting I pulled out the shirt and made them both wear it for 30 minutes, it worked like a charm! This is my new favorite fighting punishment. Plus it makes for the BEST picture!
I finally have been convinced to start attending the free workout classes offered in our area 3xs a week. It is nice I am able to bring all my little workout buddies, but I look forward to the day I will no longer have to workout and then check to make sure there is no trouble with my kiddos happening.
In November the 3 older kiddos when for their annual checkups and they were thrilled that no one had to get shots this time! The kiddos stats were as follows:

Weight: 33 lbs (Not on Charts)
Height: 41.5 in (Not on Charts)

Weight: 39 lbs 2 oz (45% for girls)
Height: 43.2 in (60-65% for girls)

Weight: 43 lbs (60-65% for boys)
Height: 43.7 in (60-65% for boys)
One Saturday we took the kiddos to see a local Elk and buffalo farm, all the kiddos though it was really cool, but unfortunately, we couldn't stay long since the wind was so bitter cold all we wanted to do was get back in the warm car and house.
We finished off the month with a couple of fun dates, one with all the adult Fergys where we ate at The Pie Underground and then shopped at City Creek. The other date was a stay-at home tailgating UofO date, which we of course won!
November was a busy month with Thanksgiving and gearing o for Christmas , but we still managed to do lots of fun stuff !
