I have had some requests for some of my soup recipes so I added a whole bunch on the cooking blog that I contribute to. If you are interested in taking a look click either here or go to the sidebar and click on What I Ate Today.

shall we dance

Scott and Grace are dancing to Bing Crosby's And the Angels Sing playing on the Victrola

**A Victrola is a antique record player from the early 1900's (manufactured from 1901-1929) that we inherited from my parents - Scott is in love with it.

one, two, three, cuatro!!!

That's right! Number four is on his/her way! I am ten weeks along and due July 10th. Other than feeling absolutely terrible, we are really excited...

P.S. Happy Birthday today Jessica!

another great lily creation

Apparently Tubby wanted to be Frankenstein for a day, so Lily, in all her creative glory, came up with this clever mask and hairpiece. Tubby was so excited and Lily was so proud. I thought it was pretty cute.

giving thanks

We had such a great Thanksgiving! All of Scott's siblings came to our house and we enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving feast together. The only thing that would have made it better was if his parents had been able to join us (they are serving a mission in Slovenia/Croatia). Here are some pictures of the Turkey Bowl the morning of and dinner that evening (and the top one was taken after Karen's baby shower on Saturday - Karen is Scott's sister).

Scott and his four brothers.

Just before dinner. Don't you love the mismatched chairs!
