Happy Thanksgiving!

 Today we had dinner at Jay's sister's house.

 I spent much of the afternoon trapped under this cat.  It was really quite nice.
 We had our Charlie Brown Thanksgiving dinner the other night.

 Not quite as much space in the living room as last year...

 My kitchen is looking a little different than it did, too.  (Please note that even though it's usually quite cluttered, this picture captures an exceptionally bad moment when we were home just long enough to drop the groceries and heat a pizza before leaving again for evening activities.  It's really not *always* this bad.)

 Yeah, I miss this.

 But new things are coming and in the mean time, there is much to be thankful for...

 First grade Bible presentation

 Winning the limbo contest at skating!

 Books to Treasure with Derek Anderson

 Alice lost her second tooth!

 She left a note for the tooth fairy and got a drawing in return!

 Making ornaments at 4H

 Visiting our old neighbors (and the animals, too!)
