Then she wanted to play tag, we had to end the fun there, we cannot play tag in our house :)

She ate a lot at the Chinese buffet lo mein and sweet and sour chicken pieces, Payton was free because Tung told the waitress she was 2 :) We weren't going to pay for a girl that never eats anything, and then surprise, surprise, she ate! Reagan ate a napkin.
Yankee Candle was fun too and I wish I'd taken the camera, I had no idea it was such a winter wonderland inside, it even snows every 15 min or so and there was a cool bridge with lots of decorated Christmas trees and little lit up villages that would have been fun for a picture...now we know.
Payton saw Santa right away before we'd even seen him, she started crying and said "Mommy I don't want my picture with Santa, and I don't want Reagan to have her picture with Santa either!"
Our Christmas tree is decorated, but the bottom layer of branches is missing a lot of needles, Payton hung all the ornaments on the bottom herself, and continues to re-hang them every night when she comes home, all the off and on has many needles piled up on the ground. But she's very proud of herself and thinks it's fun. Reagan likes to look at the lights.
Reagan is reaching for toys and trying to sit up, she rolls over a lot now front to back and is so close to rolling from back to front, she just can't get her little chubby legs all the way over! I bet she will though within the next week.

Tuesday night, we made cupcakes for her birthday party at Gail's house. She's all about helping dump in the ingredients and she cracks me up trying to say the word "ingredient" she almost has it exactly right.
Yesterday when we came home, she asked me if she could have a cupcake, I told her no to wait until after dinner and we could eat one after we put the frosting on, she had this sneaky little smile on her face and pulled a cupcake out from behind her back. She'd climbed up on the counter and taken one and already started to unwrap it! So I caved and we ate cupcake then, and then had another after we frosted them. She helped dump in and sift all the powdered sugar and then just kept wanting to stick her finger in the bowl and lick the frosting!
Friday was her party at Miss Gail's, she was most excited for the goody bags. She must have asked me if I had them 5 times, I forget everything else, I guess she was afraid I'd forget those too! She loved all of her presents and even slept in the new princess crown and high heel play shoes.

Payton just couldn't wait any longer to make the gingerbread cookies that Nannie sent her in the box, so we made them tonight. They are all hers because she put every single gumdrop in her mouth and sucked off all the sugar before she decorated the cookies! Here's the finished product!

Update: She made it all day with the same pair of underwear! That didn't last once she got home, but she did very well at Gail's house!

Reagan isn't dressed up today but she is wearing her Halloween bib. She'll be the lobster tomorrow.

We've had recent success with potty training, she went 4 times in a day and even on the potty at the Japanese Steakhouse to celebrate Tung's new job. She was so excited and screamed that I thought everyone still out at the table would be able to hear her. It seems like it's taking forever, but I think she's finally starting to make the connection.

Payton trying to carry her own big pumpkin

When Tung came home and we were eating dinner she started a Once Upon a time story for him and it was "Once Upon a time, there was a girl named Payton who loved her Daddy". She really is a cutie and when all the messes, jumping and almost falling off the couch, yelling and all of her "monster" moves make me want to lose my mind, she comes up with her Once Upon a Time story that makes me completely melt. That's why there's nothing better in the world than being her and Reagan's Mom.

Also a highlight for Payton was swimming in the pool, it didn't matter that it was freezing she loved it all the same. Payton was 8 months old when we took her to Tech for the first time, and Reagan was 8 weeks old. Both were such good girls, it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be and we had a great time. It's always so peaceful to go to Blacksburg, probably my favorite place in the world.

Cracked me up but at the same time made me sad to think all she thought I did all day was "yell" at her... we had fun, and she really was a good girl, I guess just the perspective of a 2 year old.
