Thanksgiving Moments and More

We had a really relaxing Thanksgiving this year.
This is unusual for us because we have lots of family to share this holiday with, but things just worked out differently this time.


During Thanksgiving week, Jasper came over for a while and we made chocolate sugar cookies. The kids had fun decorating them.


Of course eating them was the best part.


Since our Thanksgiving day was pretty chill, I tried to give the kids some things to do to make it more special. Here they are standing by their grateful tree sporting their pilgrim hat and Indian headdress.


Some of their fall artwork.


The kids helped make our place card holders for dinner.


Mom and Dad spent the day with us. Everyone pile on for a golf cart ride!


Our new kitty addition. Meet Ringo.


This now makes three kitties for us.


Dancing fun!


Makes for a blurry picture but they sure had fun!


Family shot! Daddy was being silly.


Dinner was simple yet tasty.


Momma and Crosby got a haircut. We've got matching shirts too. Thanks Aunt Missy!


Someone figured out how to sit in the rocking chair. He even gets himself a book to look at.


He also figured out how to get up on these chairs. Thankfully he is good at getting down too. Look at that proud face!


This Thanksgiving was very enjoyable, and these last couple of weeks have been pleasant as well. Lots of fun times coming up!

Our Little Pumpkin Is 1!

It's official: Crosby is a one year old! I can't believe it's already been a year since we welcomed him to our family. He's been such a sweet little boy, and super smar too (I'm not biased at all).

We had a little celebration for him with a pumpkin/fall theme.


Our food table.


Pumpkin cupcakes, pumpkin cake balls, fall fruit dish.


We had chili and hot dogs, veggies, sweet potato chips, and popcorn.


I loved the backdrop, I had a hard time taking it down when it was over.


Family shot!


Our kiddos!


Aww sweet kisses.


Happy Birthday Crosby!
He didn't really know what to do with the candle.


Cupcake!


Num Num!


All gone!


Presents!


Brother and sister helped him out.




So did the rest of us.


Family and friends.





We all had a great time at his party, and look forward to watching him grow this next year!
