Thanksgiving, Part 2

Here are Noah and Jaren before they went off to ski school. Noah really liked it, and Jaren fell asleep after the morning session and never made it back outside for the afternoon.

Here is Zev playing in his pajamas...

...with his goofy cousin Noah.

The three big kids in the tub.

Jaren is telling Zev something important.

Here is Zev getting ready to go tubing. He is looking super cute.

Zev loves his cousins.

The bigger kids getting ready.

Out in the snow

We tried to get them all looking, but that was impossible.

Zev is too busy with the snow to look at how cute baby Ava is.

He did enjoy going on the sled with dad.

Me and Ava

Rachel, Tova, and Jaren

Karen and Jaren inside warming up. Jaren did not really like tubing, so she only went once.

Jaren, Zev, Noah, and baby Ava on the couch. Still working on Zev smiling and sitting still for pictures.

Buster and Jaren

Last, my favorite new picture of Zev. I took this with Ari's iphone while we were pulling Zev in the tube. I will try to post a video of it when I get a chance!


I couldn't get any pictures to load yesterday, but I am working on it again today, so here we have it: THANKSGIVING!

Starting with Noah and Jaren in the snow...

The pictures got out of order somehow, here is Jaren asleep on Tova before she made it out or maybe another day altogether... She was completely asleep. Tova even removed the snow suit without waking her up.

This was Zev's favorite activity all week. He loved playing in Buby and Buster's toy kitchen. Little does he know, he will be getting his own very soon!

Here are Zev's big cousins playing air hockey while he was in the kitchen.

I think the pictures are in order again now. Here is Jaren playing in the snow. She is the most precious snowboarder girl ever.

Back inside now for some whipped cream...

Noah loves whipped cream too.

Here are Zev and I talking to baby Ava.

Zevi looking precious with Aunt Tova

Here is a picture of sweet baby Ava. It is hard to tell here, but it seems to be a sure thing that she is going to be blond...

Jaren tried to help push Zev on the push toy.

He did not always appreciate it.

He loved playing with his cousins though.

Lighting the Hanukkah candles

Jaren and a big present

Zev opening a new dress up costume from Buby and Buster

The big present craziness...

A little play-doh time the next day

Jaren and Ava in their coordinating outfits! They were too cute.

Zevi also loved taking a bath with his cousins...

He was pretty sure that Noah was amazing.

Zach, Rachel, and Ava on Thanksgiving day out in the freezing weather.

All the guys frying the turkey

More play-doh time the next day

I have lots more pictures to put up in Thanksgiving, part 2!

I can't believe that my little baby is 18 months old! I keep telling people he isn't a toddler, but I don't think I can deny he is a big kid anymore! He is full of energy, running everywhere, and full of opinions that he wants everyone to know about. With all of that being said, he is still so sweet and full of smiles. Ari and I could not have gotten luckier...

Playing in a pillow pile

Zev has started to make a beautiful face when I tell him to smile.

Here it is again, it cracks me up.

A real smile, but with a smooshy face!

now he's just crazy...

He was coming up with this crazy plan to put the ball on top of the elephant. He was a LITTLE annoyed that the ball wouldn't balance up there.
We leave for Thanksgiving in about 4 days! We can't wait...

Hair cut!

Zev has finally gotten another hair cut! Here is a picture of him with it in the bath tub. I know it doesn't REALLY look like a cut, so I will show you a few pictures of the before...

SO much hair! I love this little sassy face...

A handsome boy with or without all the hair, but I am pretty happy about the new haircut!
