Pre-Thanksgiving Dinner.........Peanuts style

Every year, Tyler prepares a Pre-Thanksgiving day feast in honor of the Charlie Brown Thanksgiving episode. It comes complete with all the fixings that Snoopy provided in the show. As we are ready to eat, we have to exclaim"Where's the turkey?, Where's the mashed potatoes Chuck?, Where is the cranberry sauce?" and our favorite "Where's the Pumpkin Pie?" It is alot of fun seeing him try to get everything ready for everyone. We can't wait til next year for it!

The Big 4-0

Charles turned 40 on November 18th. As a surprise, I whisked him away to Las Vegas for 3 days. He was shocked, but happy! We really enjoyed ourselves....we are still trying to recover:) Happy Birthday Baby! We all love you!

Treats for the Sweets!

After giving them the special Halloween breakfast of Champions, Halloween Lucky Charms, I thought Halloween night was going to be a sugar-induced series of breakdowns...starting from Tyler down to Michael. But, they surprised me! They all ate in time to go out, were happy to put on their costumes, and joined in with the actual trick-or-treating part. We all had a very nice time. Also, it didn't hurt that the weather was excellent! For once, no one was sweating on October 31st! Once we went to about 15 houses, they were done, including the big one. That was good for us, less candy for them and less candy for Mom and Dad to sneak;) I hope all of you had as much fun as we did! Now how many days until Christmas?
