The Big 2

Lauren is 2 years old today,
we started out the day with
pancakes, then for lunch we
had her favorite meal of
spaghetti, followed up by
chocolate cupcakes. yum...
She has changed so much
since last year, she is saying
a few more things, but is also
very busy, she likes to hop,
jump and run now. she also
will cut her eyes at you if you tell her no. :)
Wow, what a difference a year
makes in a precious baby girl.

A BIG Family Thanksgiving

This year we hosted Thanksgiving
at our house, we had 26 people
come and for those of you who have never been
to our house it's only about 1800
square feet. :)
We all had plenty of food, fun and fellowship
we even had a friendly game of
Trivial Pursuit 80's Edition
between the cousins and Steve
and I lost but not by much. We
have plenty to be thankful for and
are glad we had lots of family here
to celebrate with. Pre Dinner ball playing outside
