Happy Thanksgiving!!

Well its a little late, again - notice this has been becoming a new trend for me...late for everything. Although, in my scatterbrainedness, I thought that today was the 29th and not the 28th and called Colin to wish him a very happy birthday, and the happy accident was that I was a day early this time!! WOO HOO! Anywho, Thanksgiving was really nice. It was wonderful that Mike was here this year. We had one of his coworker's family here with their 3 little guys - it was really a lot of fun. All the kids had a blast. Fiona had a bit of a tumble and now has a black eye - you can sorta see them in the pics... poor little girl :(

And here is a funny video of Fiona before everyone got here for dinner - hilarious!!!

Only Fiona knows what she is yelling, but this has become a new routine lately in the house and it cracks Mike and I up totally - why the running in circles with the yelling?? Who knows!!!

Dinner was perfect - everything came out cooked and not raw, edible and tasty and relatively at the same time!! Our Menu for the day was:


Veggies and dip
Artichoke dip
and Cheese tray and crackers


Turkey and gravy
Mashed potatos
Sweet potatos
green bean casserole
Cranberry relish
Salad with craisins and sunflower seeds and orange and honey dressing
and rolls


Lemon Merangue pie
Chocolate silk pie

Yummy - I am still so stuffed check out our "Adult Table" and the cute place cards I made yes it was a great Thanksgiving because we are so lucky to have so many things to be thankful for. We did miss Aunt Meg's annual Thanksgiving - seriously its one of the only things that make me homesick. One of these days we'll get back again for that.

Also a little update on the health and well being of Fiona. As mentioned there was a bit of a tumble on Thanksgiving and she has a bit of a black eye, but other than that we did have a Dr. checkup on Tuesday and she is "perfect" - the doctor did say that. she is a little over 25 pounds now and is 33 inches long!!! Tall and sorta skinny - that buddah belly says otherwise. Well off to bed for now. Miss you all!!!

oh, and we started to decorate for Christmas...Here is Fiona in Mommy's Santa Hat

*camera is seriously on the fritz - word is that Santa is working on a replacement - Mommy cannot wait!!*

And then there was the Hot Dog dance - she loves this from Mickey Mouse club house. She stops everything to watch and dance to it. You can see how well she twirls - this usually lasts longer but the camera is apparently more interesting :)
