An update on Sam & Christmas Preparations

Sam is sure growing and changing fast. And yep, I'm saying it again, he is that much more fun!
Just a week after he learned to crawl (end of November) he was pulling himself up in his crib, but did not know how to get back down. Ha ha, it was quite a stressful and frustrating thing for both of us. But props to him, he did learn pretty darn quick how to get back down.

I thought it would be fun to take pictures of Sam in a Santa hat. He doesn't keep a hat on very long. But I did get a good picture that ended up on our Christmas card. :)

He has loved a Santa door knob hanger and laughs when I jiggle it and say, "HO, HO, HO, Merry Christmas" in a low voice. He definitely has the Christmas spirit!


I did an absolutely lame job in capturing our thanksgiving fun. The pictures I do have are of two or three days before Thanksgiving when Melanie and I made the pies. And yet I still did not get pictures of us in them. Here are the pies -- Pecan and Apple. They turned out great!

Thanksgiving away from family was bitter sweet. It was a shock to have to plan and cook our own Thanksgiving feast, but lots of fun to share traditions and be with friends - The Zambranos.

Our Thanksgiving went as follows:
Morning - football game 9-11am
Snacked on pigs in a blanket around noon
Gathered for dinner at 5pm at the Zambrano's place - all in attendance were: Josh, Melanie, their friends (forgot their names) , KC, her mom, Parker, Justin, me and Sam.
Played Catch Phrase
We also hit "Enid Lights" Friday or Saturday night with the Zambranos and their friends.

There was so much good food and fun people!

It was fun to bring each of our traditions together and make a Thanksgiving of our own…
