Gobble Gobble!

Reading books with Great-Grandma Lady (or "YaYee," as Kyra calls her).
Kyra wore her turkey Thanksgiving shirt, and happily said "gobble gobble" when asked what sound a turkey makes!
Entertaining Great-Grandma Rene
Playing with cousin Peyton (Granddaughter of Geoff's cousin Tammy)
Cuddling during a viewing of "Mickey Mouse Clubhouse," Kyra's current favorite show (she is completely addicted!).
Our second Thanksgiving celebration, on Saturday at Jay & Jen's house
Playing in her cousins' playhouse
Playing with cousin Izzy

It's not easy to get all 4 of these cuties to smile for the camera at the same time
Playing with a hula hoop
Kyra and Izzy had so much fun playing together!
Mia was showing off her "stick on nails" (no longer known as "press on nails" apparently, according to Mia).
Jason attempting to copy Maddie's dance moves
Kyra loves dancing and happily participated in the dance party with Maddie!
Multi-tasking while dancing
Izzy and Santa
Playing with a box of beans - fun fun fun!
Once again, an attempt at a nice photo with all the granddaughters proves fruitless...but still fun!
Two cuties...too cute!
Having fun is one of her many specialties!

Halloween - Meow!!

Our little "Hello Kitty" on Halloween wearing a handmade skirt by Grandma Carol (with Halloween Hello Kitty fabric), Hello Kitty Halloween t-shirt, Hello Kitty crochet hat, and a Hello Kitty hair clip, with a Hello Kitty candy basket.
For our first outing of the day, we went trick-or-treating at the UCI Marketplace
Kyra was having so much fun looking around at all the exciting activity that she barely noticed that she was wearing a hat (they normally get yanked off immediately!)
Mommy wore a Hello Kitty shirt in solidarity
Kyra held on tight to her Hello Kitty candy basket ALL afternoon, even after it got heavy from all the candy she collected!
Most of the stores in the shopping center were giving out candy, and Kyra quietly enjoyed every minute of it
Once she finally let us put her down, she was off and running, candy basket firmly in hand!
Dancing on the grass
Investigating her haul
A lollipop! Maybe next year we'll actually let her eat a lollipop...
"What else did I get?"
The Asia Noodle Cafe was giving out fortune cookies!
Once her hat came off, her Hello Kitty hair clip was proudly on display
Kyra's Hello Kitty necklace (or "necko", as she calls it), which she wore for exactly 3 seconds
"Look at all the stuff I got!"
Family shot!
Trick-or-Treating around the neighborhood
Kyra loved walking around the neighborhood and going door-to-door. We were prepared to go to only 1 or 2 houses, but she surprised us with wanting to keep going for an hour or more. We finally had to bring her home when she was getting tired.
Kyra discovering the deliciousness of a Kit Kat bar!
She loved it!
By the end of the day, she had an overflowing candy basket!
