Fun filled weekends

Here are a few pictures of our last few weeks. This will probably be out last post from 1832 SE Crystal Cir. A week from tonight we move out and then on Tuesday, December 1, we should get the keys to the new house. It will be a very busy and exciting Thanksgiving weekend. Scott, Calla, and I have so much to be thankful for this year. Our health, the health of our parents, two jobs we enjoy, and almost a new house. We hope all of you take time this week to be thankful for all you have.
Last weekend we went to visit a friend that just bought a house in Portland and then visited the Portland Zoo. It was a great day to be at the zoo. It was kinda chilly, but the animals were really active. We saw polar bears, lions, elephants, a sea lion, and three orangutans.

Calla walking along the curb.

Calla also loves to find "seats" that are just her height. She sits on almost every curb we see if we let her.

Calla has no fear, she just goes and goes and goes. When we are out at the Corvallis Market we have to watch her all the time, otherwise she will just wander off and make new friends. She says "hi" to everyone we pass.

Calla also loves to run, both towards us and away from us. She just loves to run.

Calla running away from mom before we are leaving downtown Corvallis, she wanted to stay and have more adventures.
Calla loves looking out at her "street". It is hard for us to believe that she used to not be able to look over the ledge, and now her shoulder are that tall. She only has one more week of looking out at this street. We move out of our house next Sunday. New address here we come!

Calla's newest game is to get any bag (but mom's purse is best) and the says "bye, bye" and walks around the house once, then comes back and says "hi".

Our friend from AZ, Steve Shelby, got this toy for Calla when we were visiting in October, she loves it. She is getting better and better at putting the shapes in the correct spot.

Calla loves books!! We read them to her all the time. Just recently she has also started "reading" them to herself.

Fall '09 Photos

Calla and Daddy enjoying a hug and a silly mement.
Calla has a silly side. She loves to laugh and be tossed around the house.
Calla also now loves to play with the phone and "pretend" to call people. I say pretend because we have had one 911 incident.

We only have a few more week of being able to walk to the park. Calla loves the slide. We will have to make trips back to the old neighborhood to visit the park and all of our wonderful neighbors!
Calla and Daddy watching football last Sunday while Mommy was napping.
Here is Calla in her short lived Halloween costume. I say short lived because she was really not a fan of it and this was the only time she wore it. There is always next year.
Playing at the park.
Heading off to the park. Calla now loves to take walks so our family walks as a long as they used to eb we just don't cover as much ground.
