This Face

I don't like this face...

...I just want to hold him and never leave his side when he looks like this.

But, I got to go to church today and leave the boys at home.

Seth's a great Daddy, and made a great nurse.

Porter's gotten better, slowly, ever since I came home.

I think on the next doctor's appointment for him I'm going to ask about this.

He's sick a lot.

I have my theories, but I want to know for sure.

Does your child get puke-sick at least once a month?

Turkey Day

We hosted Thanksgiving for the second year in a row.

This time, instead of buying pre-sliced turkey, we actually cooked our own!

Or, should I say...


And, oh my goodness, it was the best turkey I think I've ever had (sorry, Mom).

It was juicy, flavorful, and just plain perfectly delicious!


The turkey bag.


Thanks, Brianne, for the tip!

Speaking of Brianne, here were our guests for the evening:

Ty, Brianne, Scott, Ezra (you see the top of his head by Scott), and Ryan (arm by Seth)

Everything was absolutely delicious.

For dessert, we had pie and brownies.

And, believe it or not, I actually made a pie!


Not exactly beautiful, but it was so good!

Seth told me I should make more.

Especially since it was diabetic-friendly!

I think Seth and I had a lot of beginner's luck with our dinner, but we certainly enjoyed the company and the food.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I'm Strong

We let Porter bring us his diaper basket when it's time for his change...and, no, he's not yet potty trained...dang it.

He has gone potty once, though!

That's progress!

Anyway, when he brings his diapers, he likes to comment about how strong he is.

Usually as he is in the process of dropping the basket.

What a great, strong helper!

Wanna See My Teeth?

While relaxing with Seth, Porter came up to me with this face:

I died.

And, just kept on laughing.

Even when he released his upper lip.

Porter loves to lighten our day.

Possible Pattern

I may be becoming a pathological picture-taker on a break.

This week wasn't crazy!

In fact, it was very nice and mostly relaxing.

Seth had Fall break, so was home more and therefore I got to accomplish much more than usual!

I also got to actually hang out with my husband!

But, after a day of Nursery with a bunch of 18 month to 2 year olds, I feel like I need another one of these...

...put up on my wall.

Ah, memories...

What? No Photo?

This week has been...


That's the nice way to put it.

Let's just say there was a lot going on--emotionally, physically, and mentally.

Today, as I was about to post the weekly happenings, I realized something...

...I didn't take any pictures.



It is well-known that I prefer to post blogs with pictures and that my readers prefer to have a picture with the post.

Luckily, Porter ended up crashing before dinner today, so you get to have a picture in this post that very much describes how I feel now that the week is over.

You're welcome.

Looks like an ordinary kitchen cabinet, right?

Well, little did you know...

...a little boy lives inside!

A little boy who is enjoying his PB&J sandwich.

Gotta Do Something

Even if Halloween is on a Sunday...

*not me...but this is very close to what I looked like yesterday. Google images

...festivities should still be maintained.

Even if you don't carve a pumpkin...again.
