Thanksgiving 2010

Posted in Uncategorized on November 28, 2010 by depechemom

We visited with The One’s family for thanksgiving this year. Only one of his brothers could come, but that didn’t stop the cousins from having a great time together.

We ate lots of turkey, potatoes, pies and cupcakes, but mostly I had fun hanging out with my SIL. We came home for the weekend and enjoyed a quiet weekend at home. December is going to be the busiest it’s ever been with travel, a birthday, the church pageant, Christmas, and so much more! Sadly, I know that means it will be over in a flash.

Enjoying the few quiet moments will be the key to this holiday season.

Soccer time

The Boy loves soccer. He runs up and down the field, looks up before he passes, and scores plenty of goals all while wearing a huge smile. Here he is with one of his coaches giving him a five after TB scored a goal.

Big girl

I love seeing how each child excels. Little Lady is definitely gifted in writing and drawing. The girl has been able to color within the lines and write her name in all caps for a year now. Her latest development is to write her name in what we call “The Kindergarten Way”. You know, first letter capitalized and the others lower case. The Boy only started doing it regularly this school year. Now, LL does still write it in mirror half the time, but it still counts in my book.

Here’s a pic of my big girl showing me just how big she is.

Ugh! I’m having difficulty getting the picture on here from my phone. Will try again later.

Posting this from my phone, and I really have no idea how well this will work. I figure it’s been so long since I’ve posted anything anyway, might as well give this a try. Doubt I actually have any readers left anyway!

I have big hopes of sharing more pictures thanks to this amazing new gadget! The One spent days researching just the right combo of body and lens. We have already gotten some fantastic shots.
