We had a great Thanksgiving we spent it at our friends the Cowan's along with about 30 other people. It was a lot of fun and the food was great. The only thing missing was of course our family and the leftovers. So we knew we couldn't do anything about our family but we could do something about the leftovers. We decided to have are own Thanksgiving dinner on Sunday. Todd made the turkey and I made everything else. It was great! It was totally white trash. Instead of putting the food on nice plates we put it in the tupperware so all we had to do was place it in the fridge when we were done. I have to say I loved it that way since it meant less dishes. Todd did such a great job on the turkey, it was so cute to watch how into cooking he was. Now we have lots, and lots of leftovers! YEAHJohn LOVES food. He will eat anything and loves it. He loved the mashed potatoes the most. He also tried pickles on Thanksgiving and loved those too! (he's is mommas boy)
Jo Jo actually sat and ate with us for a few minutes. He enjoyed his pickle and gluten free bread. The kid is SO picky!
Here is Todd with our WHITE TRASH thanksgiving!

The Champions!

The "Stormin Mormons" were the intramural champions for the Big Red this year. They played every Wednesday night and had a blast. I was only able to go to two games since babysitters are hard to come by, but it was fun to watch them play. The other wives may disagree but I'm pretty sure Todd was the cutest one out there! Congrats!

Halloween Night

To Infinity and Beyond! We started off our Halloween night at the commons in downtown Ithaca to do a little trick or treating and to let Joseph play on the playground. He LOVED it and even let me put the thing on his head. Later I decided it was cuter without it so I took it off.
My little Devil. Is he not the sweetest little DEVIL you have ever seen. Actually I think I paid for putting him in this costume last night, he slept for a total of about 2 hours.
Our little DEVIL
I just Love him
little Devil with his Daddy. I love the Binky. We bought for Jo Jo when he was the devil but he wouldn't use it. I'm glad we saved it.

the night continues....

On his way to try this whole trick or treating thing out.
Getting closer....
Yeah, he did it!!!

I think he likes this whole Halloween thing. Look at that grin.
And to another...
When we got home he sat by the window and watched the trick or treaters come. It was so sweet. I really think he enjoyed it. YES, another huge step. It was a fun night for both the kids. I'm pretty sure Jo Jo is a BIG fan of Halloween now.
