This year we stayed close to home and had a very mellow turkey weekend – Food was great, and the prep was easy this year.Here a few shots from the day My mom (mrs.crafty) decided to go a bit crazy with the cricut! We also got to use my Grandma Richau’s fall china – fabulous! Gobble Gobble!!
Well my 5 months of maternity leave are coming to an end – I start back to work next Monday. I am both ready and nervous, but my know-it-all husband claims this was exactly how it was with Elsie, so off I go.

Silas also agreed that he looked funny ……read more
Silas went to his 2 month appointment last week and got away with just two shots. Elsie was subjected to 4 separate ones on her 2 month appointment. Here he is looking angelic before the shots. Vital stats were: 11lbs 9.5 oz head: 15.5″ height: 22.5″
