AND.... One Month Later...Happy Thanksgiving!!

Exhibit A:

Is the reason I am eating only grilled chicken and salad for the next few weeks.

But ohhhh was it good.  This ended up in the oven, covered with marshmellows.  Why no "after" picture?  Well, because we were all taking little tastes out of the top of it as soon as it came out of the oven.

And here:  Exhibit B

MMMMM.... More butter.  I told mom she was out of practice because she only bought two pounds and we were out by the end of dinner.  We barely had enough....

And finally,

Exhibit C:

Exhibit C is the reason why we love living in Arizona!!!  70 and sunny two days after Thanksgiving.   Beautiful day and fun holiday!!  Makes all of those 115 degree days worth it...  I promise, it's a dry heat  :) 

I love being with family and friends.  Can't wait for Christmas!

Happy Halloween!!

What a fun night!  Homemade root beer, cheesy soup, family and friends. 

Poor Bella was so terrified of Matthew's costume which looked kind of like a Star Wars "sand person" (don't know how else to describe it....) But seriously trick or treated for two hours because she wanted to see the "Purple Zombie House."  Whatever that is.  Bless Michael's heart, he went out trick or treating with her over and over again, trying to help her find it...  Oh well, maybe we'll come across a "Purple Zombie House" next year.

This picture is soooo bad. But I didn't know how poorly it turned out until several days after Halloween so this is what we're ending up with for posterity.  Better than nothing, right?
