He really wants to crawl!

video

I've been trying to upload a video for 2 days and then I realized my file was way too enormous, so I had to do a little editing and downsizing. It's not that bad really! I should take more video.

Anyways, here is DT trying so hard to crawl. He is very close. He can get anywhere he wants to go already.

Christmas is Coming


We went for a different look this year. The "yard tree" is a tradition in our neighborhood. Each street has a tree coordinator who orders them in November. It's so pretty to see them down the street!

The tree!

We had an ornament casualty this year. My helper dropped the glass pickle in the kitchen and it shattered. We bought another pickle and I dropped it getting out of the bag. Our friends then gave us a new one for Christmas and so far it is doing okay!

Since our family is probably complete, it was time for new stockings. Instead of ordering some, I decided to make some. TT & I were wondering what I was thinking, but in the end, I think they came out quite nice. LT was nice enough to be sick one day, so I had to stay home from work and was able to finish them up. It turns out they weren't as big as they could have been! I still had trouble fitting everything in. We don't have a mantel, so we're not quite sure where to put them.

Leaves

A few more shots from Thanksgiving. After all that food, we went for a leaf collecting walk. We found ALOT of enormous leaves!

LT had so many leaves that he could have flown away.


DT enjoyed watching from the stroller!


Then we started raking up our yard and LT came up with a genuis way to clean up the sidewalk!

Thanksgiving Day Recap

The Turkey Chefs


The finished products ... turkey, stuffing and sweet potato praline casserole.

There was cranberry sauce, too, but I forgot about it until we took this picture and we had to quick make it. Luckily it only takes 10 minutes!

The baby Thanksgiving spread - plain sweet potato.


3 boys in their "handsome" shirts


The wishbone winner!

I wonder what his wish was?

And here is the pumpkin pie!

There is still one "girl" piece left and LT says it is for me. He only eats boy pieces.

For the cooking enthusiasts, the chefs chose the high heat method for the turkey and used covection. You roast it on it's side and then flip to the other side after about an hour. If you want more details, you'll have to ask TT! I was in charge of sides and pie.
