The difference a year makes

Thanksgiving day has come and gone.
I guess I did an OK job on my first Thanksgiving dinner. I dont know if I am going to host it next year. I ONLY forgot to make the broccoli salad, cought the oven on fire and put way too much sugar in the whip cream. I could not of done it with out my Sister or my Mom. We will be eating turkey for weeks. We cooked a 22 lb bird. I think I am going to grow feathers and start saying gobble, gobble before we eat all of this turkey. It was a great low key evening. The kid played well with each other and the Little man did not pee his pants!!!
In years past my hubby spends the day after putting up tons and tons of lights (over a week or more) but this year we only put up a few strans (thanks to the economy).
Here are a few pictures to compare from last year.

Turkey, turkey

It has been a long week getting ready for Thanksgiving. It is hard to clean house with the little man making a mess faster than I can clean. Well I guess my house is as clean as it is going to be.

While cleaning I came across a little turkey left by my little turkey.
I will have to post later about how my first Thanksgiving dinner went.
Have a great turkey day.

Asleep on the job

This weekend the little man was standing on a stool by the front door looking out the window. When he went to get off he fill into the living room and hit his chin on the hard wood floor. He started screaming and before I knew it there was blood coming from his mouth. When I was able to get a look into his mouth I saw that he bit both sides of his tounge. On Sunday morning he work up in bed with us and we noticed that he had a big bruise under his chin. In this picture that I took today you can really see the bruise.

He was so grumpy and tired today the only thing that kept him happy was for me to hold him. So I put him in the wrap and did the dishes. Before I was even done with them he was sound asleep. It was only 10:30 in the morning. So he slept until about 12:30. Since he did not have a "normal" nap he was asleep for the night before 8pm. (The has got to be a recorded in our house)

A month ago I bought a set of baby legs from Target. I really liked them but they were not on the little man longer than 5 minutes when he had an accident. I could not afford to buy a whole bunch of them so I started looking around the internet. I came across this blog and she talked about how to make your own. I also found a pair of leg warmers for $3 that work great. He likes them the best because they are so soft. So now I have six pairs. It is so nice to not have to put pants on and off all day.

A few pictures

From Wednesday through Saturday we did our yearly photo shout at are church. Here are a few of some edited pictures that our friend Lindsay took of the little man.
It was fun but I am glad that this only happens once a year because it is a lot of work.
