Thankful for . . .

. . . these adorable smiles!


We had a great Thanksgiving weekend! We started with a cousins sleepover on Wed. night, a yummy turkey dinner with the Nelson/Keller family on Thursday and Christmas shopping & decorating the last couple of days! Owen will really be sad tomorrow when Daddy has to go back to work :(

During my early morning bargain shopping on Friday I bought a new, smaller, fit-in-your pocket camera. This will hopefully help me take more pictures in the next several months. The blog posts have been scarce lately because I seriously didn't take any pictures between Halloween & Thanksgiving!! Our nicer camera is great but a little bulky to just have on hand to capture the silly, every day things.

Tune in next week for a really exciting new post!

We had a fun Halloween this year! Owen really got into the trick-or-treating and came home with tons of candy!

Nice faces!! That's Owen's "super cheese" face.

He couldn't resist wearing Ashleigh's costume for a little bit later on.

Pumpkin Painting & Carving

Owen & Daddy carving a pumpkin. Owen was grossed out by the pumpkin guts. He washed his hands 3 times and lost interest before it was done.

We let Owen paint the little pumpkin he had picked out. This activity was more up his alley.
