Happy "sniff, sniff, cough, cough" Thanksgiving

So November brought the Ingram family many things. Let me try and list them, strep throat, strep throat, horrible head cold, strep throat, a yucky virus that makes little boys get sores all inside there mouth, and more strep throat. Tis the season to be sick and sicker. Since returning from AK we have been bombarded with illness in our house. It has been less than fun, but since I am sitting here sniffling, and holding a very cranky little boy, I thought I would be productive and update our blog. We have had a busy month this month, but as I look back I am not 100 percent sure what we have been doing besides getting sick and working. All I have to say that we are looking foward to Hawaii with a passion right now, and have 37 days to go!!!! So hopefully we will get all the sickness out now before we leave.

One other thing that Novemeber has brought us is a new addition to our family. A very sweet puppy we named Honey. She is about 9 weeks old, and a yellow lab. She is as sweet as can be and so far is an awesome puppy. She hasn't had any accidents in the house, and we couldn't be happier with our impulsive decision to get her. She was given to us, and we couldn't pass up the offer (we are suckers for cute things.) Here are a few pics of her and the kids, with I am sure many more than you care to see to come. We hope you all have a fabulous Thanksgiving!!!!

It is about time I posted another blog, I have had a hard time finding a moment to sit down and write.

I can not believe it is already November (really I am having a hard time believing it is November, since I was just out yesterday mowing our lawn in the 80 degree weather.) Although it is almost Thanksgiving, fall has really not yet arrived here in TX, but I can tell there is a crisper feeling in the air. Things have been going pretty smoothly, I don't have a lot to report, which is probably a good thing.We just got back from AK a week ago, and had an absolutely fabulous vacation (thanks mom and dad.) The kids did great, and had SO much fun playing with cousins, and Grammy and Papi, and Auntie and Uncle. It was so nice to be able to go with Chris and get to see our friends, and enjoy a lot of date nights, (which are very rare for us) and just relax and enjoy being "home." The kids were once again super travelers. I counted and this was Cailey's 11th trip on an airplane, which is not counting the times in my belly, and Caleb's 4th. They are becoming little jet setters. Our next big adventure is our trip to Hawaii...we have been spoiled rotten by my mom and dad this year. My entire family will be traveling to Kauai on Feb 2nd, for 10 days of fun and sun to celebrate my mom's 50th birthday. We are all very excited and are counting down the days. So now we are just looking foward to the holidays, and doing our best not to gain a bunch of weight durning this time, because we have to be in bathing suits in 2 months!!!

The kids are doing great. Cailey has been doing really good in pre-school, and is making a lot of friends. She is getting very excited about turning 5 (she still has 3 months, but talks about it regularly.) She seems to think at times she is 13 instead of 4, the attitude is definately coming out, but all in all she is a sweet ,bubbly, extremely talkative little girl who we are very proud of.

Caleb is doing pretty well in pre-school, but has had a few naughty notes sent home with him. His favorite word is "mine" right now, and has a tendancy to steal toys from his friends, and then run away with a big grin on his face laughing. Having a boy is a very different experience from having a girl, but a huge blessing also. He is so sweet, and cuddly, and is just so cute that all the little naughty things are pretty hard to get mad at. He has a great laugh, and is generally a happy little boy. We are working on being kind, so hopefully this phase will pass quickly.

That's about it for us! Hope this finds all of you doing well also. We love and miss you all, and hope to hear updates from all of you soon also.
Chris and Christina
