Wow, I am so close to being done with the year!

November will be a shorter blog post because half of November was spent in Europe.

When we got back from Europe we discovered that Lucy was limping a lot.  We weren't sure from what, but we figured that because there was an ice storm that she probably slipped on the stairs and sprained her foot.  After it was not better in a few days and it was looking swollen Christopher took her to the vet.

At the vet we weighed the boys.

Lucy's foot was looking better, but after we stopped the antibiotics it got worse.  We got a refill.  After a couple of days it was bleeding and not doing well, so back to the vet we went.  He said that her nail is infected and put her on a heavy dose of antibiotics and told us to soak her foot in epsom salt three times a day.  Both things seemed to help and her foot finally healed!  Once her nail grew out we saw where it was damaged.

We had to wrap her foot up when it was bleeding, so that she would stop licking it

We went to OMSI (Oregon Museum of Science & Industry) for the first time and while there we bought a membership.  The boys seemed to have a lot of fun.

We finally registered our cars with DMV.  The process was so easy and fast!  Much much better than Los Angeles!  Soon after registering our cars Christopher was on his way home and got in a minor car accident.  Some old lady didn't realize that there were a bunch of cars stopped at a light and rear ended one car that hit another car, which then hit Christopher's car.  He was okay and there was minor damage to the car.

This year we stayed at our house for Thanksgiving.  We watched Home Alone with the boys, which they loved!  Then we had a nice dinner.  Also, Nathan grew a mustache!

Christopher started working on setting up his taps in our kitchen and I started the "no poo" method, which is not using shampoo and conditioner on my hair and using baking soda, water, and vinegar instead.
