Maybe there's still hope?

Later in the day, the kids rode bikes and had a lot of fun.

They enjoyed a fun golf cart ride too.

We loved our LONG weekend with five days off! It was great to spend time with all of our family and have some time to rest.

Thanksgiving 2012

 We had a very nice Thanksgiving with family.

  I mostly just have random action shots from the day.  It's possible that I was too busy eating to take a lot of pictures.


I hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful as well!

November Stuff

I am catching up on all of these random pictures before I post our Thanksgiving stuff.  So here you go!

Pinterest gave me the idea of a pizza quesadilla.  One weekend night we threw them together for a quick meal.  They turned out pretty good!
 We've had some cold evenings here and there, so there has been some cuddling under blankets.
The first cups of hot chocolate of the season were consumed as well.

 Naps were taken.
 Little people stole my phone.
 Santa was spotted at the mall.

 Brian made his first ever French onion soup.  It was as good as any restaurant ever thought about being.  Seriously, look at that cheese.
 Claire's class had a Thanksgiving feast that parents were invited to attend.  

 They performed several songs and poems.

Then we all danced!
 Lisa and I went to see Breaking Dawn (Part 2) as part of her birthday festivities.  Here she is holding "the official birthday bag".  We can't even remember how many years we've been passing this bag back and forth for each other's birthdays.  She has the BIG responsibility of keeping up with it from November until the next October.  I am fortunate to only have to NOT LOSE it for the month and a half that it's in my care.  Honestly, that bag is probably more special at this point that the various gifts that have been inside it over the years.  Happy Birthday Lisa!

My Babies

I love these sweeties!

Homemade Pasta

Ok, it's time to catch WAY up.  Brian made homemade pasta way back in early October, and I found this in my drafts.  He has made it before, but this time was exceptionally yummy.
