ordinary day

Winter is sometimes tough on me.
I get bored staying indoors but I'm also a baby in the cold.
Who would have thought I grew up in Idaho...

It was nice and mild with no rain one day so we decided to take advantage of it. Until we ran into mud. White carpet and mud don't mix.

What is it with boys and their sticks and rocks.

Logan is holding his container full of acorns. He sure loves his little treasures.

Both our boys were sick over Thanksgiving. 
We had planned on going to my uncle's for Thanksgiving dinner, but didn't want to get a house full of people sick, so we stayed home and had our own low-key holiday.

Darrin wanted to make turkey pancakes, so he did that while I got our Thanksgiving chicken cooking.

WAIT! That's the one the president pardoned....oh, too late
(Joke compliments of Darrin)
Didn't he do a good job?!

Logan and his bed head and Bennett in the background. Waiting for their turkey pancakes.

Our full Thanksgiving table. It was fun cooking Thanksgiving all myself (with some help from Darrin, of course), but I'm glad it was just for us so it wasn't stressful at all.

Logan pleased with his jello. 
When he woke up on Thanksgiving, he said: "It's Thanksgiving today! I'm going to eat jello all day!"

Bennett seems pretty happy with his first Thanksgiving meal.

This year I'm especially grateful for my family. I realize more and more each year how much each one of them means to me.
Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!
