a love letter

Oh how I love thee biter biscuits! Thank you for letting my family have a peaceful Thanksgiving meal today.  Thank you for providing teething relief for my boy (4 teeth and counting!).  Thank you for letting him enjoy delicious graham flavor.  I could do without your clean-up but I will sacrifice 30 wipes for 30 minutes of a somewhat, (don’t forget we still have 2 other kiddos!) peaceful meal.

roughin’ it-thanksgiving style

We went to South Shore park on Lake Bastrop for Thanksgiving with James’ parents.  What a beautiful hideaway-and only 30 minutes away from us!  The girls had so much fun with Oma’s canoes!  (Rilyn actually got to spend the night in the cabin with her Oma and Papaw last night.)  We had a Thanksgiving feast, only complete with the Cowboys game.  This, of course, was courtesy of James bringing the TV into the great outdoors where he carefully placed it at the head of table, (where only Tony Romo is fit to sit.)  Thankfully the Cowboys won-(we won’t mention our other team that played yesterday and royally stunk up their whole season.

Aunt Mandy made the girls Indian costumes the night before.

Who doesn’t love Charlie Brown holiday specials??  I thought we just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to have a Charlie Brown Thanksgiving with our community group kiddos!  So, just like the cartoon, their plate looked like this:

our little man

Asher turned seven months yesterday.  He is such a good baby!  He just got his 3rd tooth so maybe my laundry will go down for awhile from all the bibs he soaks with drool.  He is about to crawl too.  The little guy gets up on all fours and rocks-he just can’t figure out how to propel forward yet without doing a face plant.  I would prefer he hold off until after the Christmas tree goes down but he has other ideas.  It looks like we won’t be decorating the bottom half of our tree this year.  Here he is showing off of his new skillz.

And here he is with one of his best buds-Malachi. I think this friendship may be one-sided right now but I’m very confident they will grow to one day be bros. 😉

busted

We’ve managed to go 4 1/2 years with kids without going to the ER.  I think that is a pretty good run…

Tonight it ended, but with good news.  No stitches for poor Ella on her busted lip that she did at a friend’s house.  The cut is inside her top lip and pretty deep (hence the major swelling)  Since she is a thumb sucker I just wanted to make sure everything was okay in there.  Doctor told me to have her wear a mitten to bed so she wouldn’t suck her thumb for awhile.  I paid $100 copay for that wise advice.  Thanks doc.

By the way, like any normal mom, I took my camera to the ER where I took these shots. What?!? You don’t take your camera to the ER?? Well, you’re missing out on some great photo ops!! 😉 (Yes, I’m that obsessed with scrapbooking!)

bed brows

I’m pretty sure my son is the only baby who gets these when he wakes up…

whatever happened to seashells?

This past weekend we took my family to the Oasis.  We got there in time for sunset and the view was great.  The food was okay (you can’t beat Pappasitos when it comes to Mexican!)  But what really bothered me was where our waiter chose to seat us…and where my husband’s chair was in view of that (“honey, just keep looking forward”).  I understand the whole mermaid statue idea at a restaurant that is near water…but seriously people, whatever happened to seashell bras?  I cropped many of the pics I took of the sunset because I really didn’t want to see a mermaid’s nipples in the same scenic shot, but here is one pic to warn you to just stay away from the mermaid statue section of the restaurant!
