Thanksgiving 2012

Happy Thanksgiving!
I would love to post some pictures of the Thanksgiving dinner we all ate, which included my first attempt at my Mothers stuffing reciepe. However, the computer has other ideas.
We also have two new kittens. Roman has been gone for a while and we suspect that he may not be returning. Norah is loving having the kittens around and carries them all the time.
We once again have much to be thankful for this year.
Norah and the "big" kids
(Both of the "big" kids are now employed, Jess has 2 jobs!)
Norahs' school and the amazing staff there
A new Brink coming into the world this next year
My Fathers improving health
My Mother and Father just in general
My Brother and his Wife
(The new addition to their family, coming next year)
(Yeah! I'm going to be an Aunt)
My job, which is starting to look more stable and new opportunities that are presenting themselves
Great neighbors
The opportunity to live in such an interesting and beautiful place
An absolutely amazing Husband that is doing his very best along with me to "step it up" and start talking about what direction we want to go in as a family
There is so much more that we are thankful for that is outside of our little personal world.
Happy Thanksgiving again.

Halloween 2012

Our first Halloween in the big house. It was quite wet outside, so Norah's mermaid costume that her aunt got for her had to be covered up with a rain coat and rubber boots. We went trick or treating on our street and then over to the Trunk or Treat at the church by our house. Norah had a great time and happily snacked on her candy until she reached hummingbird speed. Luckily she crashed right around bedtime. We only had 1, yes you read that right, 1 Trick or Treator. We were all very disappointed. Maybe next year we will see if we can participate in the trunk or treat. We all LOVE seeing all the little kids in their costume's and watching them get all excited about the candy and games.

 This picture doe not adequately show the amount of glitter that was in her hair and on her face.

 Norah doing the "Monster Mash" at Trunk or Treat.
 These two were so cute. They had their trunk all decorated as a forest. Complete with mushrooms and deer.
 This guy lives outside of a house close to us. He (or she) is always dressed up. His Halloween costume was a cloak. Very funny!
Norah ringing a doorbell to beg for candy. There is a GIANT cement horse head on the front porch. This is not just for Halloween people that horse head is there all the time. It makes me think of the Godfather Movie.
