Hello.

I promised some pics from this week so here you go:

I took the whole week off from work to hang out with the kids (Bubba’s on Fall Break) and let the hubby sleep.  We took a break from cleaning house to have some ice cream with Grandma.

Started a sock in some pretty sock yarn…

Turkey Day:

Mom was gracious enough to help her non-turkey-cooking daughter with the turkey and ham cooking while I prepared all the fixins.  I made mac’n’cheese, green bean casserole, turnip greens, and german chocolate cake.  And because she is awesome, she also threw in some rice, sweet potato, and made some of the cooked turkey into turkey adobo (our new Thanksgiving tradition).  Everything was perfect.  Thanks Mom!

Jim and Gordo joined us too.

After lunch (we serve Turkey dinner at lunchtime because Jim has to go to work at 1), we took a drive to the lake to take some family pictures.

Mom and Gordon came along too.

After the lake, we drove back home.  It was warm enough outside (60’s) so we let the kids play outside.

We brought out the Barbie car so the little ones can take it for a spin…

Lai got nervous from Nacho’s driving skills, so she got off and rode the bike instead.
