Thanksgiving thoughts and trip recap

Is it just me or has everyone forgotten Thanksgiving this year? 

I mean, we haven't even had Thanksgiving yet and everyone is already moving on to Christmas.  Don't get me wrong, I love Christmas with all of my hot chocolate lovin' heart, but I also love Thanksgiving (and on a side note, would like for the traditional Thanksgiving feast to be worked into the dinner rotation year round).

I think my sis, Big Al, summed it up best when she said, "Respect the turkey."

I'm headed to the in-laws for Thanksgiving to enjoy some food, family, and farm time.  Where exactly is this place, you ask?  Click here in case you missed that post.  And while I'm talking about Thanksgiving, my mother-in-law, and may want THIS RECIPE for your upcoming holiday feasts!  Last year she didn't include it in her menu and so no one would share what they were thankful for around the table before the meal.  Oh I'm kidding, but we did pout just a bit.  You don't just throw out a menu item involving cheese without good warning.  This year, I've already been told, that it has regained its rightful spot on the table. Thanksgiving is now complete.

Last week we went out of town again for M to the Izz-A's job.  Now you and I both know there's no need to do a recap of the same trip taken within less than a month apart.  Plus, I get tired of typing the name of that chicken joint we hang out at a lot because it has too many dashes in it (okay only two but who's counting?) and that throws off my typing speed.  And I'm pretty sure you don't want summaries of all the Dinosaur Train episodes we watched.  If you do, email me, and I'll hook you up.

So I'll share our lil' trip in the form of photographs (and a few captions).  Ya'll know I can't be completely wordless!

Why in the world are his socks like that?

Oh, that's right, because he does this.

Best smile ever


Such a good lil' helper

And somehow we managed to make it home with yet another Olivia. 

We found a fun place called Johhny G's.  I can only assume that it's NOT named after Johnny Gill.

love this pic --  love her even more

Look who's learning to sit up by himself!
