we are enjoying our 4-day thanksgiving holiday weekend!  we needed some downtime, to say the least.  yesterday was spent cooking and consuming a fabulous dinner put together with the uffelman family.  the kids played, conversations flowed and we had the best time, a always.

we have so much to be thankful for.  here are some thoughts from the boys..

max is thankful for the whole world, his family, his house, the grass, vegetables and fruit..
brent is thankful for our family and friends and the 1980's..
finn is thankful for his mommy, daddy, his brother and his daily vitamins..

i agree with most of the above. i'm thankful for our family and friends, our health, our surroundings, our jobs and so much more.  we are very, very blessed.

happy thanksgiving!

the day before thanksgiving, the kindergarten class put on a thanksgiving program for all the parents.  the kids were dressed up as native americans or pilgrims in costumes made from brown paper bags.  we started off in the community room where the teachers asked the kids questions about the pilgrims, the mayflower and how thanksgiving came about.  each of them said out loud what they were thankful for.  max said that he was thankful for his little brother.  after that, they served a feast of fruit, cheese and crackers.  lastly the kindergarten class led a prayer in the church in front of the entire school.

finn is a chatterbox nowadays and has expanded his vocabulary quite a bit lately.  some of the things he says;

"stay away" (nice..)
"me do it" (we hear this a lot)
"can i try"? (so cute!)
"can i play"? (adorable)
"sit down, mamma" 
"are you ready"?
"hi everyone"! (as he enters a room)
"come on guys"

our finn..

more green, mamma

most days, it isn't the easiest task to get finn and/or max to eat their vegetables.  the other day, we served broccoli with dinner.  max usually eats it but finn isn't a fan.  however, this very evening, finn said; "more green, mamma".  proud moment.
