We had a nice day trip for Thanksgiving this week. It was great to see most of our family. We've been busy working around here the rest of the weekend.
Sierra had a fall today and connected her forehead with the bottom of the tv. It turns our stomachs to look at the bruise. It was definitely the worst goose-egg I have ever seen... being over 2 inches wide. Here's a pic I took while she was eating. I think we are lucky we didn't have a huge gash requiring stitches. You can see the line on her forehead from the edge of the tv.

Here are a couple of pics from Thanksgiving evening.

Sean couldn't wait to go to Granny's this week. We had to run some errands on Wednesday and he thought we should just go on to Granny's afterward. I had to explain that we couldn't leave Callie and Daddy. :-)

At the right, Sean is enjoying Charlie Brown's Thanksgiving with great-aunt Karen.

Here are a couple of close-ups. Thought I'd show one without the huge bruise on Sierra's head.

Hello. It's been a busy couple of weeks. Jeff just got a promotion at his job. He is looking forward to the transition. We are looking forward to earlier hours even though it means getting up earlier. It will be nice to see him come home before dark. We have not even discussed whether we will be traveling for Thanksgiving. I think we are in denial that it is only 8 days away.

Please keep me and my strep throat in your prayers. It came back this week so I am on antibiotics again. The doctor said that sometimes it can go into a carrier state. I think it was hanging out in one of my yucky tonsils.

Have a good week!

Fall photo shoot.... we enjoyed some very nice weather on Saturday and I took some pics of the kids. We were a little behind on 1-year pics for Sierra and 3-year pics for Sean and we skipped school pics for Callie this year since they are overpriced and you have to buy before you see them. I think hers turned out great.

Sean wasn't too thrilled about sitting still for his - can you tell? He used to be such a ham for the camera but now I have to shoot him on the run to get anything. If we try to get him to pose, he looks everywhere but at the camera.

Sierra loves being outside and just loves the slide as you can see. Enjoy!

Sean loves to play outside. Here are some of my favorite pics I took the other day.
