Turkey Bowl

The day after Thanksgiving, Ryan participated in our church's first annual Turkey Bowl.

My Ry scored the first touch down : )

Hello hottie

Thanksgiving '10

Thanksgiving was a wonderful day. I made us some breakfast in the morning - cinnamon rolls, eggs and bacon.

Since I had some cooking to do, Ryan took Owen to the park. He looks so cute all bundled up, no?
AJ stayed home with me. I gave him some Cheerios and he worked on his pincer grasp. Look at that look of concentration on that cute little face!

A little after noon we headed to Chris & Tara's house for our Thanksgiving lunch. Everything looked so pretty and festive. Tara did a wonderful job hosting, as always. We were joined by Doug & JoAnn, as well as Chris' parents.

The kids made these seating arrangement crafts - aren't they cute?!
The boys got lots of snuggles from the family. Here's Austy with Nana.

Oh, the cuteness.
Austy with Papa
O with Auntie Tara
One of Owen's favorite people in the world, whom he asks to see nearly every day, dear cousin Taylor
O with his Daddy
After lunch we all played a really fun Catch Phrase-esque game and then hung out and chatted and looked at Black Friday ads while the cousins played.

What a wonderful day! So thankful for family and friends!

A DIY Cardigan

I saw this super easy DIY on a blog I follow

I used this long sleeve tshirt that was a little bit short on me.

Cut it straight down the middle

(I didn't even trace a line to cut - gasp!)

And viola! A cardigan.

Cute Kids

At the church picnic last week. Doesn't Austin look so old?!

My handsome chunk
Owen curled up behind Austin all on his own. Seriously, I love that they're friends!
Austin is army crawling now. I left him in the family room and came back a minute later to find him in the hallway.
Owen tickling Austin, making him laugh so hard! I love it when my boys play together.
Oh, the cuteness
Bedhead! He just woke up from his nap. He's drinking his beloved chocolate milk and watching Nemo.
As I told Ryan the other day, Austin has my eyes and Owen has my sweet tooth. Ha!

Pumpkin Patch

We had so much fun at the pumpkin patch last week. The weather was perfect and the patch wasn't too crowded.

We let Owen run free and he loved it!

Papa and Uncle Jesse joined us (we missed you Lynn!)

There was music playing and of course Owen had to stop and listen.

Giving the pumpkin a hug

Playing the drums

Oh the cuteness.

Checking out the baby pigs!

Papa and AJ

Family pic... kinda
Check out those dimples! Austin was blowing raspberries - one of his new favorite things.
The corn pit. Owen could've played in here all day. I practically had to drag him out

Looking at an ostrich for the first time. Those things are freaky! This one kept pecking at it's neck - it had a bald spot there! Not among God's brightest creatures, I don't think.
The horses. I asked O if he wanted to "pat pat" it and he pulled his hand away.

Austin and Uncle J
Discovering the water trough thingy

I took over 80 pictures this day so there may be a Pumpkin Patch Part 2 coming up soon!
