Star on Top

As we were decorating the tree this weekend, Levi found the star and was excited to top the tree with it.

(Pardon the blurry pictures, I'm not sure what happened with that...)

Of course Milo wanted a turn, next.

Then guess-who decided to be funny.
And then the best for last. 

Levi was very excited to take those last two pictures.  For better tree pictures check out this post at our other blog.  Wordpress lets me post bigger pictures.

Long Weekend

With the long weekend off for the holiday, the boys got even more time with Daddy.

Lucas graciously volunteered to help Milo take his nap on Saturday.

Time to wake up!  We were off to to go get our Christmas tree.

It's easy to wake up happy when Daddy's right there.

"Take my picture with Daddy!"

Happy Thanksgiving

I've been feeling especially thankful lately so celebrating on Thursday was extra special. This despite the fact that both boys got a 24 hour bug of some sorts. It's been a good weekend but I'm so tired!

Joel, Kelly, and their crew were planning on coming over for the day but we shortened it to just coming for lunch.  It was great to see them even if they left right after dessert.

When they came to the door, Levi greeted them with, "You know what?  I had THROW-UPS THIS MORNING!!!!!!"
Kelly brought the tablecloth she started a couple of years ago.  Like last year, we all wrote a new message on it with a Sharpie.  We traced the kids handprints and marveled at how they had grown since last year.

Look at this sweet niece of mine!

The boys spent most of the time away from everybody.  Here they're camped out on an old comforter on our bed. 

Milo drew this picture.  From left to right: his Daddy, Milo (the little bitty figure in the middle), and Uncle Joel (with REALLY long legs)

We hope your Thanksgiving was special!

Cheers!  Toasting cousins:

The birthday party was at a really fun play place:

I took a million pictures of Kosse.

Can you blame me???

Kosse's Birthday

Our nephew, Kosse, turned one year old and we got to help him celebrate today.


Corrine made him an adorable cake.  (Kosse means 'Lion')

And now pictures of him eating his cupcake.  These will brighten your day, I promise. 

I've got lots more pictures to share of the party, coming soon!

Family Fall Foto

Last week, we grabbed the camera and tripod and found a good picture-taking spot in our neighborhood.   Make sure and check out our other blog for my favorites.

Here are some more I enjoyed.
