My dad and Debbie came out to Miami for Thanksgiving. It was super fun! We did a lot of things. Here are the photos.

First stop, Vizcaya. It's a mansion built in the early 1900s by a really rich guy, very cool. Part of Iron Man 3 was filmed here (notice the ship).

We all went up to Debbie's parents', Bobby and Rosie's, house for Thanksgiving. There are huge beautiful cranes that live on their street. Here is my dad feeding them:

We went to see the manatees. There is a natural warm spring that joins up with a river in Deland, and the manatees like to swim up it in the river to keep warm. There were lots of babies, and they were fun to see!
My dad pushed Ezra around in the stroller the whole time. He is counting his steps every day and was able to get a ton of steps in while talking to the baby.

Daddy and baby

Bobby and Rosie sent us home with bags and bags of fresh oranges, tangerines, and grapefruits! We have been feasting like kings.

Ezra was blessed that Sunday. It was wonderful. My dad, Bobby, and Keith were all in the blessing circle, and Price held the microphone. Ezra was smiling and cooing the whole time.


Here are some more pictures from the first half of November, of course, of Ezra. He is getting big fast!

I love the way he sleeps. :)

Sad face :)

Church clothes

He loves his early Christmas present from Grandma and Grandpa Coleman.

His favorite toy

Trying to blend in?

Scared face!


Too much fun!

First time eating solid foods!

He likes being wrapped up like a mummy before bedtime.

Family Pictures

Okay, so this is the first of three posts I should have done in November. (Sorry! Catching up! One day I will be an experienced blogger who posts every week.)

The first week of November we took some family photos. One of our good friends here, Kendra Larsen, is an experienced photographer, and in mid-November was nine months pregnant! She wanted to get a few last family pictures while she was still pregnant, and she'd heard that I knew how to use a nice camera, so she dressed her family up, and we dressed our family up, and together, we went out to the beach to get some fun shots! We traded being photographers for each other and had a lot of fun. We love how the pictures turned out. Here are some of my favorites:
